    Yep. And for all the other makers who released bezel-less phones this year or last, including Xiaomi, Umidigi, Bluboo, etc. And for the new iPhone, which is also rumoured as bezel-less.

    Well... the "frameless" phone has now been officially announced. And it does disappoint because it is neither "frameless", nor "full-screen". 87.5% screen-to-body ration is indeed great, but...

  5. Sharp phones by AU KDDI can be freely updated outside of Japan!

    I have just successfully updated to the latest build version (03.02.03) my wife's SHV32.

    The software update was released today (I check the Sharp keitai page every day for news), I just went to...

    Sharp to release a FRAMELESS phone

    Sharp Mobile China are preparing a full-screen phone where the display will occupy 100% of the phone's front. At least that is to be inferred from the teaser here:...

    Sadly, no Sharp phone after the SH-01G/SH-02G has been rooted (and even for those models, the rootkit, made by Tewilove, is only available for users from China).

    This latest OS upgrade (to Android 7.0) was actually suspended temporarily due to a bug; should be fixed soon. But if your SHV33 is running anything lower than Build version 02.01.01...

    Normally, you will not receive any updates or upgrades because all Sharp phones are locked to only upgrade/update when in Japan and when connected to their home network (in your case AU).

    This might be due to a system bug. The SHV33 just got the upgrade to Android 7.0 last week. But since you can't even turn Wi-Fi on, upgrading it in the hope to fix the issues is not possible.

    Try installing it via ADB from your PC.
    If that fails, then Sharp/Docomo must have locked the phone to only accept apps that are signed using a specific signature.
  18. New design of Sharp smartphones How do you like it?

    It seems everyone's lost interest in this forum and, by extension, in Japanese phones, Sharp-made smartphones in particular (or vice versa). I'd imagine this is because of the dull iPhone/Samsung...

    I certainly can't speak for every possible case out there. The principle is that as long the USIM card contains the Softbank IDs, it lets you inside the phone.
