Sharp Aquos R2 Compact Quick Review

In the design compartment, Sharp Aquos R2 Compact is seen with very slim bezels on its side as well as its base. The slim-looking bezels and the double notches do adequate justice to the majority of the smartphone’s design. However, an ugly looking camera (22.6MP Quality) is present at the rear alongside the LED flash.

Up front, the screen is sized at 5.2 inches, a rather small display size. It makes quality use of 1080 x 2280 pixels resolution and 485PPI pixel density for its crispness and delivery of quality content. Meanwhile, 19:9 aspect ratio and 80.5% screen-to-body ratio greatly fashion enormous screen estate.

Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protects the screen from breakage when it falls. Added to this, the phone’s display bags features such as 120Hz refresh rate, HDR10 Compliance and DCI-P3. The latest Android OS – Android 9.0 Pie – operates as the software of the smartphone.

In the seat of power, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC oversees the entire smartphone functions. Tagging along with it is a compatible 4GB RAM. The RAM sees to the sleek multitasking of applications on the device. With 64GB storage aboard, various files can be stored without early worries of insufficient storage.
