It’s called Sharp Aquos SH-Pad 05G and is one of the most compact tablet on the market, thanks to its ultra-thin frame around the display. Measuring just 174 x 105 x 8 mm and weighs 210 grams, so it is smaller and lighter than a Nexus 7, while adopting the same 7-inch screen Full HD (1920 x 1200 pixels).
The Qualcomm Snapdragon processor 810 is backed by 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage expandable with microSD card slot. The data sheet also includes two cameras 8 and 2.1 megapixel camera, a battery of 3900 mAh, WiFi 802.11n and LTE, all managed by Android 5.0 Lollipop.

And ‘one of the few tablet with the new SoC octa-core Qualcomm and probably not a coincidence. This chip has long been the focus of controversy, criticized for the “proven” heat issues that would affect consequently its performance. Almost all companies that had announced a device with this processor, they changed their minds at the last minute, except HTC, Sony and LG have launched their premium smartphone without hesitation. Xiaomi, however, has attempted to make the necessary adjustments, changing the processor with four wings of graphite to aid dissipation, but with little success (it would seem). Why Sharp would nevertheless adopted a similar chip, already stained by doubt and uncertainty?
We can not confirm this, but probably Snapdragon 810 reaches more easily high temperatures in smaller frames (such as smartphones), while in the tablet (where there is more air circulation) the SoC could keep cooler. Or perhaps, Qualcomm is trying to solve the problem of turning out minor revisions “less hot” the Snapdragon 810. For now, the only solution is underclock the chip, with a drop in performance, which in any case would also be the “fully operational”.
