Low-performing processor

I don't expect a lot for a 110 Euro priced phone, bust just so you know that the Sharp Pi uses a Mediatek MT6737W SoC with Quad-core 1.3 GHz clocked processor, Good for basic apps and games, but not for demanding apps. Very cheap processor.

Low pixel density

The display is quite large, but the problem is that the resolution is low, only HD, which translated to around 282 ppi pixel density, not impressive numbers, definitely not good for VR viewing.

Huge top and bottom bezels

The Sharp Pi definitely doesn't score high in the design department, with huge top and bottom bezels that make it looks very outdated.

No 3.5mm headphone jack

The Sharp Pi doesn't come with a 3.5mm standard headphone input jack according to the official specs on gsmarena. There isn't any USB-C as well, so how people can listen to music, only via Bluetooth?

Older OS (Android 7.0)

The Sharp Pi comes with an older version of Android operating system. It comes with Android 7.0 and not the latest version which is 8.0 as of the time of writing. Disappointing to see an Android phone in 2018 that comes with the older version.

Expandable storage using microSD

The Sharp Pi comes with only 16GB of storage space, which is less if you account for the installed software. This means that there isn't a lot of space for images and videos. The goo news is that you can expand it using a microSD card, up to 128GB supported.

No fast Wi-Fi ac support

The Sharp Pi doesn't support the latest Wi-Fi standard, which is 802.11 ac, it only supports up to 802.11 n. Just keep in mind that also the router has to support this standard, not just the device.

Cheap price

The Sharp Pi is a cheap phone but you get what you pay for. This is a no-thrills phone, with low-performing SoC and graphics performance, low storage and RAM and overall unimpressive features, nothing that really stand out, even the battery is only 3000 mAh.
