Worth a mention that this is the Chinese version, will need to root and flash.

Only needs international rom installing. No root needed.

Still for some a bit of a faff!

For some I suppose. For those that can read and download the official International rom, put it on phone storage and install its easy.
Note, some people will get a £30 import charge. I got two of these - one zero tax, the other £29.

Nice phone and as Simon said, those with mild IT intellect could get the international ROM on it.

What the hell is going on at the top corner of the screen, like a diagonal wedge, it's all I can look at, really off-putting!!

I don't notice it anymore. You can also get an app that rounds off the angles if it bothered you.
Apparently, JoyBuy declare value proper and that customs/excise is around £30. Be prepared to factor that in.

Hadn't noticed that til you said! Fully ruined now haha
I'd much rather go with the HTC 10 Evo. significantly better processor/GPU, better screen and slightly better battery. it may be a smaller ROM but it's £15 cheaper which would compensate for that.

Bigger battery not better. The 10 evo has crap battery life due sd810. Its also bigger and much heavier.

Would buy the evo if it had an 820. Though it is a big handset in the hand too but does look well built.

Do you know anyone who fits the bill

Bought one of these when they were £115 and got clobbered for import duty …Bought one of these when they were £115 and got clobbered for import duty of £30. Still a great deal though. Do a little research and you will find that Sharp phones are owned by Foxconn (who manufacture iphones), and the Sharp phones are solid build quality using good components. Worth mentioning that the camera quality is much better than you'd expect at this price. BTW you can pretty much ignore the deal countdown timer on the joybuy web page. It's been counting down to zero and resetting for the the last six weeks! Prices have been going up and down by the odd few quid presumably due to foreign exchange rates. Finally, installing the Taiwanese rom to access the google play store is simple and easy. No rooting or specialist knowledge needed just the confidence to carefully follow a few simple steps. The process is described at the top of the original thread here CLICK HERE .


Thanks for the info. How long did it take to deliver?
Doesn't look like this has band 20 for UK 4g? Or can anyone confirm otherwise?

No it doesn't. I'm on plusnet (ee) and it's 4g virtually all the time.
Delivery took me about 25 days but others got it quicker. Goes to Belgium post then forwarded on to Royal mail. Up to one in 5 get away with duty charges. Luck of the draw.

& is the 4g speed & coverage just as good? From what I've read band 20 is the one that gives best coverage as its the lower frequency & therefore travels further distances, although it does say the other 4g bands with higher frequencies are better for getting an indoor signal.

How are you getting on with the phone?
What android does this have?
I'm liking mine, had customs charges though first time for a while. Easy ROM install. Google Pay and banking works as do Google apps. I have no issue with the camera notch or cut corners, YMMV.

My ZUK Z2 has no b20. Sat in my lounge I get these speeds. Ping isn't fibre good but bandwidth none too shabby....33816770-Xz5Kl.jpg
Unless you live in the sticks, you'll be fine without b20.
