    SH-06G Aquos or a 007SH Aquos?

    So I've been looking for a new phone and I just find flip phones extremely cute (which may or may not be practical. ahahahaha). Looking at the two, it seems that the SH-06G has a lot more cool features but the downside is.... it is not a touch screen. Both are android phones; SH-06G runs on 4.4 while, 007SH runs on 2.3. Another thing is that 007SH is considerably cheaper than SH-06G.

    And, I dunno. Maybe there are more android flip phones out there but I don't really know what they are unfortunately. So if you do know of something that beats these two then please let me know! Otherwise I'd just like to know what you think is better among the two. Also, would it be better to buy brand new or second hand?

    My advice: Get the SH-06G.
    The 007SH is now ancient. It has a very feeble processor and an extremely insufficient amount of RAM and ROM. Imagine running your favourite weather widget (must use an older version), Skype, Facebook app + Facebook Messenger + Browser... You can only dream of this, the phone simply can't take that much load... Not to mention that there is no official SIM unlock for it - you may have to pay up to 100 USD to unlock it. Of course it is absolutely cool that the phone can rotate 180 degrees and flip back to use as a touch screen slab phone but it will be irritatingly slow.

    Yes, it sucks that Sharp have decided to get rid of the touchscreen on the SH-06G. But it has a decent-powered processor, enough RAM, enough onboard storage, a recent version of Android, and can be SIM unlocked - either for free or for 3150 Yen.

    That seems fair. Although I'm a bit confused as to how you're supposed to use android apps that require a touchscreen. It certainly seems like a better option after a lot of research. Thank you!

    Well, you just don't use them
    I can't say how convenient it would be to navigate the phone using the Touch Cruiser -- you can also zoom in/out and scroll by sliding your finger on the number pad -- but Sharp believe it is. Sadly, that's what you get. Hopefully, next season's collection will feature a flip phone with a touch screen.
