Review of the product design of the AQUOS SERIE mini SHV38 au

Rating of the ease of carrying it around and getting it in and out of bags or pockets

When deciding whether to buy an AQUOS SERIE mini SHV38 au, the first important factor is its size. Smartphones are used daily, and so it is important how easily they can be carried around and pulled out of bags or pockets. This review assesses how easy it is to carry the AQUOS SERIE mini SHV38 au around and put it away.

Ease of grasping it in your hand to carry around

The AQUOS SERIE mini SHV38 au is hard to hold with one hand, so it would be to stop carrying it in your wallet. Also, when holding the AQUOS SERIE mini SHV38 au, it is difficult to have a firm grip of it, so be careful not to drop it. If possible, when carrying it around, it would be better to do so with the device in your bag.

Ease of carrying it around when placing it in your pocket

It doesn't feel strange even when you put the AQUOS SERIE mini SHV38 au in a pocket. In addition, when sitting on a chair with the phone in a pocket, it can be kept comfortably as it doesn't get caught on one's clothes or body.

Ease of getting it in and out of your pocket

With the AQUOS SERIE mini SHV38 au, it is quite difficult to put it into your pocket and then take it out again. If you try to put it in your pocket, the cloth in your pocket may rip, or the phone may be damaged because of pressure.

Ease of getting it in and out of your bag

Assessment of user-friendliness and ease of handling

It is important to consider the ease of using the phone in one hand. It can be said that it would be very useful if it is easier for you to send emails and instant messages or answer calls using one hand while cooking or using your computer. Here, we have reviewed the AQUOS SERIE mini SHV38 au by focusing on the ease of using it in one hand and the ease of typing in letters.

Ease of grasping the phone in one hand

The AQUOS SERIE mini SHV38 au is so large that you can hardly move your fingers on the device while holding it with one hand. You can't extend your fingers to reach the end of the phone unless your have a big hand, so you pretty much have to hold it with one hand while going about your business with the phone using the other hand.

The weight you feel when using the phone with one hand

The AQUOS SERIE mini SHV38 au is light, and I think it can be operated with one hand for a long time without feeling tired. However, it may be a bit heavy for those who are not used to using smart phones. Also, as it is not a heavy smart phone, its weight does not really change when a case is added.

Ease of pushing the upper button on the screen using one hand

Even when used with one hand, the AQUOS SERIE mini SHV38 au has a size which allows buttons on the edges of the display to be operated. However, people with small hands may lose their grip if they try to press the buttons at the edges.

The size of the buttons on the App

The buttons displayed on the AQUOS SERIE mini SHV38 au are large, and therefore it is difficult to press the wrong ones. While some buttons may look small depending on the app, you probably won't feel that stressed when you actually use it.

Ease of typing in letters using the flick function

It is difficult to type with one hand using theAQUOS SERIE mini SHV38 au. If you try too hard to type, the hand you hold the phone with may slip and you may end up dropping the device. As such, we suggest you type with both your hands on the phone.

Ease of typing in letters using the keybord funtion

Since each button on the AQUOS SERIE mini SHV38 au is displayed large enough, you will be unlikely to make an error when typing with two hands. This makes it very suitable for quick typing.

Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use

Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use

For people who use their smartphone on a daily basis, high performance is a rather important factor. When the performance is not good enough, then, for example, applications don't work as they should or the screen is difficult to see, and this causes stress. This review looks at whether the performance of the AQUOS SERIE mini SHV38 au is suitable for making phone calls, messaging, or using SNS.

The size of the letters and the ease of operation

In general, the AQUOS SERIE mini SHV38 au displays characters and pictures in sizes that are easy to see. While some characters may look small depending on the app, they are not really difficult to see. Therefore, it can be said to be more than adequate for uses such as searching the Internet and messaging.

Ease of reading sentences

Since the AQUOS SERIE mini SHV38 au displays characters smoothly, it can display them beautifully. Even when viewing small characters, the jaggedness of the character outline is not at a level seen during normal viewing and is displayed very naturally. Because of this, it is difficult for your eyes to become tired and make the phone suitable for reading long bodies of text.

The beauty of the overal screen

The screen of the AQUOS SERIE mini SHV38 au can display pictures and videos quite vividly. This makes it great for enjoying videos and games dynamically. It has a very beautiful screen.

Ease of writing sentences

For the AQUOS SERIE mini SHV38 au, the on-screen keyboard covers part of the screen when typing, but there is sufficient space for operation. Its size is suitable for entering long sentences, but I feel it may be a bit clumsy when editing office documents.

Does it have sufficient performance to make calls and send emails?

Whether it be a phone call, mail, or during a chat, the AQUOS SERIE mini SHV38 au provides smooth performance. Even when using the phone in demanding situations, you can use the phone comfortably since there will usually be no lag.

Does it have sufficient performance to search for things and using Social Networks?

It is more than adequate for applications such as using social media—like Facebook and Instagram—and searching the Internet. Sometimes, though, it may feel a bit slow.

Does it have sufficient performance to do other tasks while searching for things and using Social Networks?

Even if you start multiple apps at the same time or switch between apps frequently, you will have smooth performance. It can be said that the performance is more than enough if you just do research and SNS.

It is slightly lacking in terms of high-capacity processing such as 3D games, but there are no real issues for normal usage.In addition, it has slightly more memory, which is more than adequate for general use. Most games can probably be comfortably enjoyed. Although I feel it may be slightly inadequate for 3D games, overall, there is no problem.
