Sharp Aquos S2: Review

sharp aquos s2

Since its release into the world of smartphones in 2015, Sharp Aquos S2 is yet to disappoint, and just as its name suggests, it is extremely sharp in terms of performance, design, features the kind of user experience it offers buyers.

But the most interesting thing and the main reason you should get yourself Sharp Aquos S2 is that it came with flagship features that were beyond excellent. Take for example the dual rear camera plus the much revered Qualcomm Snapdragon high-quality processor technology that runs this phone. For game lovers, this top-notch gadget transformed everything to make playing 3D games smoother than ever.

Such excellent features made it comfortably keep up with all new trends even in 2017.

So, should you go for Sharp Aquos S2? Well, the answer is a solid Yes. But first of all, take a look at the review below.

Design and Body Build

Comparing Sharp Aquos S2 against today’s standards, we can authoritatively say that it is proportionately compact. Its screen to body ratio stands at an impressive 87.5 %, which is fine for everyone.

Display dominates much of the screen. At the bottom, a ‘Sharp’ logo is visible while a fingerprint reader lies just beneath the screen, above the logo. At the top, we have a large front camera, while the volume rocker and power buttons are found on the right side of the phone. The left side harbors the MicroSD and dual hybrid SIM Card slots. USB Type C connector, microphone, and loudspeaker lie next to each other at the far bottom. But I am sure you would be disappointed to find that this phone lacks a headphone jack.

To enhance the phone’s robustness to impacts, its manufacturer used metal at the sides.

Sharp Aquos S2 is lightweight and thin at 140 g and 7.9 mm respectively. Generally, the design is good but still more needs to be done to rid the phone of the plastic back.

Display, Software, and Battery

Sharp Aquos S2 comes with a 5 inch LCD Screen that offers the end user a high-quality resolution of 2040*1080 for image clarity and sharpness. But its excess color saturation is a real turn off for many people. Meanwhile, you can adjust color representation and temperature using display settings.

On matter software, this smartphone runs on Android 8.0, which is not so much outdated. But the most interesting feature in the device is definitely the processor. 2.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 Octa-core series processor works best with Android OS for great performance. 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage capacity is quite fine for everyone.

And yes, these amazing features are futile minus the support of a good battery. That is why Sharp used a 3020 mAh Li-PO battery for this model because they knew that what you need is longer standby time. So, you can take as many pictures as you please, browse, download and play music, and yet still play games after you have charged the battery to 100 %. I am saying this because I am pretty sure that Snapdragon processors barely sip a lot of battery power.

Camera

It has to be the most interesting feature in Sharp Aquos S2. 8 MP front camera plus 12 MP and 8 MP dual rear camera guarantees you nothing short of high-quality images and videos. You can also enhance camera output by adjusting ISO, Shutter speed, and white balance thanks to the inbuilt camera app.

These lenses not just add fake blur around your shots. Instead, they give them a very attractive bokeh.
