Under the hood, we find everything enticing if this will be priced like an entry midrange phone. It features a nice 5 inch HD Sharp IGZO panel, 1.5 GHz Snapdragon 617 octa core processor paired with Adreno 405 GPU, 2 GB RAM, and 16 GB of expandable internal storage up to 200 GB.

Aside from its resistances, the other thing that makes this phone special is its battery life. The Sharp Aquos 507SH features a large 3,010 battery life for the specs that promises up to 3 days of use due to the optimizations found on a pure Android handset.

On the camera department, it appears that it isn't shabby as well. There's a 13 MP BSI main camera w/ AF and LED flash and a 5 MP front facing camera for selfies.

It also has LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, and NFC connectivity options. As expected, it loads with a Nexus like Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS with no bloats to let you experience the best of Android OS.
