Key features

  • Equipped with a large approx. 5.0 inch IGZO LCD display. Large icons and text make it easy to view. Usability has been improved so icons can be freely sorted. Moreover, it allows easy zooming in on small areas with a button.
  • Together with the IGZO LCD display that provides excellent energy savings and a large 2810 mAh battery, the battery can last over 3 days*1.
  • With shock-resistance in addition to capless waterproofing and dust proofing, you have peace of mind even if you drop the phone while removing it from your pocket.
  • Equipped with a 13.1 megapixel camera that enables you to capture high-resolution photos.
  • Enjoy exchanging messages and stickers with smartphone apps like LINE (a service allowing fun communication with family and friends). You can also enjoy sending photos and videos.
These results are based on tests in which the user's actual use of various functions such as when the display is on, sending and receiving emails, using applications, etc. is assumed (Sharp research). The battery life depends greatly on the use of games, browsers, and other applications in addition to voice calls, email, and other network usage.
