Sharp Aquos S3 is a smartphone from the Android One program. It has pure Android and average components, and is not a cheap smartphone. So why would I want to buy it?

Smartphones with pure Android are increasingly sought after by the buyers of the new model. Ensuring frequent and quick updates and trouble-free work for a long time after the purchase encourage many. Personally, I am a rather moderate enthusiast, but after the Google Pixel 2 XL I have gained a bit of favor. However, Google's flagship has a disadvantage that every top smartphone has – but this one in particular. It is expensive, and the Polish price of PLN 4400 makes it the second X smartphone after the iPhone, which costs as much money. I am not saying that it is not worth it, but I will not spend so much on the phone at the moment – even though it is an important tool in my everyday work. What about cheaper competition? I have several models of Motorola coming to mind – it is not completely pure Android. The cheap offer is Xiaomi Mi A1, but until now it was the only one. So far, the Sharp Aquos S3 has had a quiet premiere , which is completely different than we expected.

According to previous reports, it was supposed to be a large-screen bezramkowiec. Such a device will definitely go to the market, but under a different name. Aquos S3 is a classic model that looks like the front of Pixels for the illusion of the front. Frames that surround the 5-inch FullHD display are really hard to call thin. Exactly you can see it in the video below: YouTube Preview Image Sharp did not go too far in terms of specification – the processor is Snapdragon 430. It is supported by 3 GB of RAM, and the user received 32 GB. This is a very basic set, but after Motorola Moto G5S tests with almost identical specifications, I am sure that in everyday work it will be fast and responsive – which does not mean that it is efficient. On the front you will find a 5 megapixel selfie matrix and a 13-megapixel main unit on the back. The manufacturer promises great quality photos, but judging by the price, I would not expect miracles. It's hard to expect miracles for $ 300 – on the other hand, it's high enough to be justified by more than just Android 8.0 Oreo right out of the box. The battery has 2700 mAh, which announces an average of 1 day's work away from the socket.

The added value is watertightness and dust resistance, which is not the standard among models from this price shelf – unless we're talking about resistant smartphones for active people. I must admit that Sharp Aquos S3 is one of the biggest surprises in early 2018 – very positive in addition. I can not regret that we will not officially buy it in Poland.
