Created date: 02/24/2018, 21:42:18, Updated date: 04/04/2020, 10:06:47

We've conducted a detailed review of the AQUOS PHONE IS13SH au, looking into its battery, how easy it is to use the camera, and whether the CPU performance is high or low. Not only that, but we've also evaluated how portable and easy to hold it is, as well as how nice the display is.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the AQUOS PHONE IS13SH au

AQUOS PHONE IS13SH au's size

The AQUOS PHONE IS13SH au is 2.6 inches (65 mm) wide, 5.2 inches (132 mm) tall, and 0.4 inches (10.9 mm) thick. At this size, a man with large hands would be able to operate it comfortably with one hand, but it may feel a bit large for a woman with small hands. In the case of the AQUOS PHONE IS13SH au, it weighs about 132 oz (132 g). The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

Both the size and weight of the AQUOS PHONE IS13SH au make it easy to hold in your hand and are unlikely to cause any trouble when you use it normally.

AQUOS PHONE IS13SH au's screen

The AQUOS PHONE IS13SH au has a 4.2 inch screen. The iPhone X has a big screen, which very likely won't ever trouble you. Just be aware that it's not a very good size for writing long blocks of text.

The resolution of the AQUOS PHONE IS13SH au's screen is pretty much standard. It shouldn't be a problem for normal use, but it might prove to be a bit dissatisfying for those who wish to better enjoy their photos, videos, or games.

The CPU performance of AQUOS PHONE IS13SH au

The processing performance of the AQUOS PHONE IS13SH au is quite low at 1.4GHz×1(Single core), and you may find minor issues even while browsing the internet or Twitter.

The AQUOS PHONE IS13SH au only has 512.0MB of RAM, which is fairly low. The RAM is regularly insufficient, so operation gets unstable and jerky even when using apps that are not resource intensive.

In rating the AQUOS PHONE IS13SH au's overall operational speed, it ranks at the low end of smartphones. It will lag and feel sluggish even during normal use. In most cases, users will feel the performance to be lacking.

AQUOS PHONE IS13SH au's storage capacity

The AQUOS PHONE IS13SH au has 4GB of data storage. This is fine if you mainly use email or social media sites, but if you plan to take photos and videos or play games, you should buy an upgrade.

Since the AQUOS PHONE IS13SH au is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

The camera function of AQUOS PHONE IS13SH au

The main camera of the AQUOS PHONE IS13SH au has a capacity of 8 MP pixels, and is adequate for normal use. But some users may feel dissatisfied with the picture quality.

The AQUOS PHONE IS13SH au comes equipped with a 0 MP pixel front-facing camera, which is very low resolution. If you aren't particular about your videos or photos, it might be fine, but otherwise, we recommend a smartphone at least one tier higher.

The battery performance of AQUOS PHONE IS13SH au

The battery of the AQUOS PHONE IS13SH au has a capacity of 1460 mAh, which is rather low. Compared to other smartphones, the battery life of the AQUOS PHONE IS13SH au is not very good. It's okay if you're just using it for calls and the occasional bit of browsing, but if you're going to browse for extended periods, play games or watch videos, you want a reserve battery pack.

Overall assessment of AQUOS PHONE IS13SH au

The AQUOS PHONE IS13SH au's performance level is that of a budget smartphone. It's a bit too weak to use as a main smartphone, so if possible you should consider something slightly more powerful. However, it should be sufficient for people that only want to use the most basic functions, like making calls and browsing the internet, and for people that don't really use smartphones much.

The merits and demerits of AQUOS PHONE IS13SH au

The merits of AQUOS PHONE IS13SH au

  • It's easy to hold and you can even comfortably use it with one hand.
  • It feels comparably light.

The demerits of AQUOS PHONE IS13SH au

  • The battery performance is not very good, so depending on what you're using it for, you might have to be careful to not run out of battery.
  • The CPU performance is not very good, and will become operationally sluggish when using apps.
  • The rear-facing camera is very low resolution, so you should not think of using this smartphone as your main camera.
