At a slightly higher price, the Sharp Aquos C10 comes with slightly better internals. The device looks similar to the Sharp Aquos S2 which is already on sale in a few Asia markets. It comes with a 5.5 IPS display with Full HD+ (2040 x 1080 pixels) resolution and 17:9 aspect ratio. It comes protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass laid on top, and the notch on this device looks similar to one on the Essential Phone. It comes powered by the 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 octa-core processor coupled with Adreno 508and 4GB of RAM.
There is 64GB of internal storage on the Aquos C10 and that can be further expandable using MicroSD card. Talking about the cameras, the device sports 12MP + 8MP dual rear cameras with f/1.75 aperture and an 8MP single front camera with f/2.0 aperture. It runs on Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box, and it’s not an Android One device. The Aquos C10 is backed by a 2,700mAh non-removable battery. Coming to the Sharp Aquos B10, it comes with a 5.7-inch HD+ (1440 x 720 pixels) display with 18:9 aspect ratio.
Internally, the Aquos B10 packs MediaTek MT6750 octa-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz. It comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The device comes with a hybrid SIM card slot for further expansion of storage. In terms of optics, the device comes with 13MP + 8MP dual cameras on the rear and a 13MP single front camera. Apart from the outdated specifications, the device also runs on a couple of years old Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. There is also no confirmation over the Android 8.0 Oreo update.
Compared to the Aquos C10, the Aquos B10 comes with a bigger 4,000mAh battery. With the above mentioned specifications, the device should easily give at least one complete day of usage.
