The Sharp AQUOS S2 Smartphones is a mid-range device in Sharp’s lineup. The standout feature for it is the edge-to-edge display that Sharp was the first to bring to market with the Aquos Crystal years ago. Apart from that the phone comes reasonably equipped, complete with a dual rear camera, making it keep up comfortably with all the 2017 trends. The Aquos S2 is very clearly a mid-range device, down to the Snapdragon 600 series processors and a second rear camera that is only really a depth sensor for the background blur effect and nothing particularly fancy. Even the choice of materials is a mixture of metal on the sides and plastic on the back. This isn’t the device you impress your friends with.
The Aquos S2 is a relatively compact smartphone by today’s standards. The main focus of the design is the screen-to-body ratio, which Sharp pegs at an impressive 87.5%. The front of the phone is dominated almost entirely by the display but with a sizable chin area at the bottom. This is usually where things like the LED backlighting and touchscreen controllers are placed since there is no space at the top but from the outside all we see are the fingerprint sensor and the Sharp logo. There are no other physical buttons here, as Sharp has opted for on-screen navigation controls.
The Sharp Aquos S2 is a decent-sounding device for as we have seen. A 5.5-inch display in a device that’d feel natural with a much smaller display in the past, a Snapdragon 660 or Snapdragon 630 processor, and a set of cameras that’s nothing to scoff at. Up front is an 8-megapixel 1.4um sensor with f/2.0 aperture, while around back is a combination of 12-MP and 8-MP sensors to capture “seven-level” bokeh effect photos.This device is exceedingly inexpensive for how top-end it looks (and likely feels and acts).
