2011 is a big year for the smartphone industry, as they have now started to embrace the 3D revolution, which you can clearly see with the Sprint HTC Evo 3D and Sharp’s Aquos SH-12C 3D. Both aim to do the same thing, but which of the two is the better option — lets see how they compare against each other?
Firstly the Aquos SH-12C 3D has a 4.2-inch 3D touchscreen, the Evo 3D has a 4.3-inch QHD display. The former has an 8-megapixel camera and a 1.4GHz Qualcomm processor, the latter a 5MP and a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-core CPU. Things do not look that good for HTC’s latest effort so far.
Sharps new 3D smartphone is just 14mm thick and offers the user an HDMI port, and has a better resolution than the Nintendo DS, but not as good as the iPhone 4 — although it is very close. Apart from the HTC EVO 3D, the closet rival in way of crisp screen technology is the Xperia Arc, which as we reported also comes in pink.
So on paper we can clearly see that Sharp’s effort looks to be a clear winner, but it would be nice to see a few benchtests. There is one issue though; the Aquos SH-12C 3D is only set for release in Japan, with no ideas of a worldwide release. If Sharp did offer their latest handset to the US and European market, then they would certainly shake things up a little.
Would you like to see the Sharp Aquos SH-12C 3D released worldwide to take on the HTC EVO 3D?
Update: I seemed to have made an error, for some reason I thought that they were both dual-core processors, when in fact the Aquos only has a single core. On reflection the HTC Evo 3D seems to have more to offer.
