Smart phones…dumb prices.
I just don’t understand the pricing on the phones that I want…it seems ridiculous.
|Xperia Play||Pantech Breakout||DROID Incredible 2||HTC Trophy||Thunderbolt|
|Memory||8 GB||8 GB||16 GB||16 GB||8 GB|
|Camera||5 MP||5 MP||8 MP Rear/ 1.3 MP Front||5 MP||8 MP Rear/ 1.3 MP Front|
So this is a table of the things that seem to matter, at least as I understand it, from the list of tech specs off of the Verizon Wireless site. So to me, the price differences make utterly no sense. If you care about your phone’s camera…get a digital camera. You can get an 8 MP camera for 50 bucks. Granted that’s the cheapest, but still. I can see paying a little more for memory, but don’t most smart phones have microSD slots to upgrade the memory? Also cheaper than paying 100 bucks more. Now the ONLY thing I can see is the 4g. I would be willing to pay more for that…but I don’t know how much faster it really is…not to mention if it is more per month. If it’s not significantly faster…then what’s the point?
So, the front runner is definitely the Xperia Play at this point. Unless one of my more smart phone loving tech savvy readers gives me a reason to pick another one.
Well, as always, thanks for reading. Hope you enjoy this installment, and see you next time!
