|DISPLAY Sharp AQUOS S2|
|Display Type||LCD display|
|Screen Size (Display Size)||5.5"||Better than 72 % of phones rated.|
|Screen Resolution (Display Resolution)||2040 x 1080 pixels||Better than 80 % of phones rated.|

The screen size reaches 5.5" inches. With a large display, phone offers a great experience for watching videos, playing games and reading. The best phones today are 6.5'' or more. They have the advantage of a large display area that allows you to see more content than with conventional display sizes. LCD displays are currently taking a back seat. This is mainly due to higher power consumption. In addition, they have the disadvantage of lower colour contrast, which can be reflected e.g. in the resulting photos. On the other hand, phones with LCD displays are in general cheaper than those with OLED technology.
Display Resolution of Sharp AQUOS S2 is 2040 x 1080 pixels. A higher display resolution is a prerequisite for a sharper image. The standard for mid-range phones today is a Full HD resolution of 1920 × 1080 px. Cheaper phones, which usually have a smaller diagonal, have an HD resolution of 1280 × 720 px. Smaller resolutions can only be found in older models. Best phones, on the other hand, have a 4K resolution of 3840 x 2160 px. Another important factor having impact on the final image is display´s pixel density. In case of this model, the value reaches 420 ppi. With pixel density, the higher the value, the sharper the image will be. On average today, the image fineness value is around 350-400 ppi. This will guarantee a sufficiently fine and sharp image for normal use. However, the best phones on the market today are equipped with pixel density of 450 ppi or higher.
|PROCESSOR Sharp AQUOS S2|
|Processor Type (CPU)||Qualcomm Snapdragon 630|
|Clock Speed||2.2 GHz||Better than 80 % of phones rated.|
|Processor Core Qty||8-core||Better than 99 % of phones rated.|
|Graphics System (GPU)||Qualcomm ADRENO 508|
Sharp AQUOS S2 is supplied with Qualcomm Snapdragon 630. The number of processor cores is 8. It is a number of cores that plays an important role in evaluating the performance of phone as it is responsible for computing operations. Smartphones already commonly have a core count of around 4 to 8. Multi-core processors can perform better and reduce the processing time of a request to a minimum, which is reflected in the responsiveness of the phone, e.g. in the speed of opening applications. Another important parameter is the processor frequency, which indicates how many instructions the phone can process in one second. Similar to refresh rate, the higher the number, the faster the phone responds. Processor frequency of phone Sharp AQUOS S2 is 2.2 GHz. As standard today, you'll find this value between 1.8 GHz and 2.8 GHz.
The processor also includes the graphics accelerator Qualcomm ADRENO 508.
|MEMORY Sharp AQUOS S2|
|RAM||4 GB||Better than 80 % of phones rated.|
|Internal Memory Size (Storage Capacity)||64 GB||Better than 78 % of phones rated.|
|Supported Flash Memory Cards (Expandable Memory)||microSDHC, microSDXC - up to 256 GB|
One of the most important parameters for user´s decision is often internal memory capacity. The larger it is, the more apps, photos, movies and other files your phone can store. This phone has 64 GB storage. It is currently the most common storage size among today´s smartphones. The capacity is perfectly adequate for the average user. It will allow you to store thousands of photos, high-resolution videos, dozens of apps and several games on your phone. But if you're one of those really demanding users and you use your phone to shoot 4K videos etc., then you should rather pay extra to have a larger storage of 256 GB or more. Nowadays, you can usually find one phone model on the market with several different memory sizes. This allows each user to choose what suits them best.
For this model it is possible to increase the storage size by inserting a memory card.
Size of the RAM memory tells us how powerful the phone is. Sharp AQUOS S2 is equipped with 4 GB. Commonly today you will find phones with 6 to 8 GB of RAM. This means that the phone can easily handle normal operation and more demanding applications or games. Higher RAM of 12 GB can be found in best phones on market and are ideal especially for avid gamers. On the other hand, operating memory below 4 GB is more of an issue with lower-end phones and older models. However, even they will find their fans among less demanding users, who don´t want to spend much on buying new phone.

The rear camera of the phone Sharp AQUOS S2 has 2 lenses. Today's modern phones usually have several rear lenses. The most common are macro lens, telephoto lens and wide-angle lens. Each is used to capture the perfect photo - macro lens is designed for close-up photography, telephoto lens, often equipped with an optical zoom, is for photos of objects in distance, and wide-angle lens captures larger areas where you need a wider field of view. The resolution of main lens is 12 Megapixel. Nonetheless, resolution alone does not necessarily mean a good photo. Therefore, you should look at other parameters such as lens aperture or pixel size. Another important factor is the aperture, which in this case is F/1.8 and determines how much light passes through the sensor. Best phones have an aperture of up to F/1.5. But the most common lenses today are F/1.8 to F/2.2. In this case, the lower the number after the slash, the higher the photo quality. Many people will also benefit from the facial recognition feature. In translation it means the camera can recognise face of person in the frame and automatically focus on it.
The resolution reaches size of 8 Megapixel. In addition, this lens also features lens aperture of F/2.0.
The front camera of phone Sharp AQUOS S2 has one lens. This number of lenses is standard on most smartphones nowadays. The lens is equipped with 8 Megapixel. However, do not forget there are other factors than resolution having impact on the final quality of front camera photos.
|BATTERY AND CHARGING Sharp AQUOS S2|
|Battery Capacity (Battery Size)||3020 mAh||Better than 72 % of phones rated.|
|Fast Charging Technology||Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0||Better than 87 % of phones rated.|
The battery size of Sharp AQUOS S2 is 3020 mAh. Nevertheless, battery capacity is not the only factor that affects the phone's battery life. For example - the size of the display, the performance of the processor, the use of data functions and, of course, the intensity of use of phone in general all have a significant impact on battery life. Standard for most smartphones today is a battery capacity of around 4500 to 5000 mAH. Phones with this battery size usually guarantee a phone life of at least 1 day. Older or cheaper smartphone models can then reach battery capacities typically around 2500 mAH and below. With this capacity, you may find that if you use your phone heavily, you may need to recharge your phone during the day. The fast charging function will also please many people. Owing to fast charging, phone charges up to several times faster, which you will appreciate, for example, on the go.Show more
