Sharp Aquos Phone SH930W - First 1080p Smartphone in the Philippines

The Sharp Aquos Phone SH930W which sports a large 5-inch Full HD display with a 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution is now available in the Philippines. The Sharp IGZO display has an amazing 441 pixel per inch resolution. 

The phone runs on a Qualcomm 8260A chipset with a 1.5GHz dual core Krait, backed by 2 GB of RAM. This will mean that the Sharp Aquos Phone SH930W will do a great job at traditional smartphone tasks like communications and multimedia consumption. The Qualcomm 8260A chipset unfortunately has the Adreno 225 graphics chips, which when mated to a qHD (540 x 960) or HD (720 x 1280) display does a decent job of staying within range of Samsung Mali 400 and Nvidia's ULP graphics. Mated to a Full HD display, you can expect 3D performance to drop. Best to wait for GSMArena's benchmarks, but I would not run out and pick up one of these  if I was a hardcore gamer.

The phone comes Android 4.1, Jelly Bean out of the box. The rest of the specs include 32GB internal storage, 8 MP primary camera, a 2 MP front camera, and a 2100 mAh battery. 

The price. The price is a surprisingly reasonable Php19,200. 


  1. 1080p at sub 20k and the 720p ZTE Grand Era at sub 15k. The big boys better offer something more interesting than this.

  2. And don't forget the 720p Huawei Ascend D quad XL with its 2600 mAh battery :)
