Good in the Hands
The design of the Sharp Z2 is great that it felt comfortable in the hands. The slight curve on the back gives it great handhold, and the fingerprint sensor is right where the fore finger will fall when the phone is held in either hand – so this is great for lefties or righties. It supports DualSIM slots, and it is also capable to accept a MicroSD card, but you lose your second SIM if you use that.
Japanese Brand with a Twist
Sharp is well known for both white goods (TV, kitchen appliances) as well as electronics. Smartphones are also a big part of the company’s repertoire, in both display and smartphones themselves. Commtiva is Sharp’s licensee here in South East Asia, and they will be your go-to guys when you want a Sharp smartphone from now.
Power in Your Pocket
The ten core processor in the Z2 gives it enough juice and ‘oomph’ to run just about any apps you have in mind – from basic day-to-day apps all the way to extensive and demanding 3D games that will look great on the large 5.5-inch screen. The Helio X20 is no slouch when compared to some of its processor peers in the market that’s for sure.
1- Chunky but Good
It is not the thinnest phone in the market, but because of that you will have the most confidence in using it daily.
2- Power Hit
It has a 3000mAh battery, but in our tests, it runs out fairly quickly – most likely due to beefy processor.
The use of USB Type-C means that it will be ready for the next generation of technology.
