Hands on with the SHARP AQUOS SH530U, a 5″ dual SIM Android phone worth PHP 12,800.00


This is a bit late, but SHARP sent over a semi-new AQUOS SH530U Android phone. We’ve seen an army of Android devices in the past 24 months and I’m glad to say that this one from SHARP is one of the more interesting ones. It’s pretty much what passes as a “modern Android device” sporting a 5″ screen, dual SIM capabilities and a decent 1GHz processor. For PHP 12,800.00 it’s definitely a good deal.

In more recent news, this January, SHARP is also unveiling a follow up to their AQUOS HD phone line, the AQUOS SH930W, which is an incremental update to the October release. This 5″ smartphone runs on a slightly upgraded version of Android Jelly Bean but its main selling point is the crisp and durable Corning Gorilla Glass screen.
