I just have an LG stylo 5. It wasn't even $200. I have no issue's with it. I actually really like it for a "budget" phone. I kinda agree with the above post. More money isn't necessarily better.
Ive never been one to spend money on brand names just because of the name though. I just need something that works for me and this phone works fine for me.

Does anyone actually do that? The reason I keep buying Samsung Galaxy S phones isn't because it's a big name but because they have the best screens, fastest processors, amazing speakers and superior VR to the standard Google stuff on Android devices etc. and because Samsung is one of the few companies still putting the best hardware available into phones that are still small enough to fit in one hand and actually feel like a phone rather than a 7" tablet. :P

I'd guess a good percentage of iPhone sales are made entirely on the basis of the Apple logo which is so fashionable in many circles!

Indeed paying more doesn't mean it is necessarily better, but I hoped it couldn't be worst than my previous phone. I would be OK with such a price but they really need to start improving their batteries instead of selling more and more accessories to charge your phone.

But if they improved their batteries then they'd lose sales of all those phone charging accessories! Can't have that! :lol:

All the time. Im not speaking phones specifically. But people always buy items because of the label they have on them. Just look up status symbol. Its Extremely common for people to purchase brands that are "in" at the time. I can't speak for the rest of the world. But yeah its extremely common for people out here to buy items based on name alone.
