    cheap and just as cheap is the respect given to your data, privacy and software support..

  • Thanks for covering some down-market choices for us cheapskates. The specs would be fine for my use, I'm attracted to the new long/skinny format though the LeTV seems to have a lot of models and may be the more stable brand. The acid test would be how long these brands stay around and some professional and user experience reviews rather than just specs (as well as protective case availability). I'd be concerned about build-quality and decent camera performance.

    The pricing is supported by recent press to the effect that Apple's recent phones are priced for a 60% plus net premium over the cost of design and manufacture - it just doesn't cost that much to build a fine phone and much of the price of "flagships" is reputation, prestige, pride and pick-up bar flirtation factor.
