No way the retail price at BBY will be $180

in the Article: Unlocked Blu S1 Compatible with Most U.S. Carriers forum

If AMZ is at $130, BBY will be at $129, what are they thinking?

in the Article: Essential Drops Price of PH-1 from $699 to $499 forum

Because they did not reserve any money from the project for advertising and were banking on Sprint helping them "get the name out", which is both foolish and something that will never happen to a Tier 3 OEM. Sprint will keep the price high and this thing will be forgotten here in a few months. Why companies try to compete with the Apple/SAM is something I will never understand.

SHOCKER

$200 price drop because PEOPLE BUY HIGH END PHONES ON BRAND, doesnt matter if this thing is another $200 off, IT WILL NEVER SELL!

Sorry you could have a 100MP camera on this and it still won't sell

This is an awesome device, but there is too much noise right now...LG G6, SAM NOTE 8, I PHONE 8 and X, just not going to sell because NO BRAND, customers buy from trusted BRANDS and there is just nothing there.

Just like the "POLAROID" phone...FAIL

First it was the CAT phones, then the polaroid phones, now the energizer phones...give me a break already! Customers are way too smart to realize these companies are just selling their brand, and these are nothing more than "CHINESE CRAP" ODM re branded phones...I think I am going to contact P&G and get the "MR CLEAN" logo and go to China and have a MR CLEAN logo phone made. Please, stop wasting everyone's time...

Good luck with that...

Just ask HTC, selling $700 phones when you name is not Apple or Samsung is REALLY TOUGH!!

Verizon just dropped the mic...although this is the same model as the insurance companies just with instant gratification. $11/mo PLUS $79 deductible...crazy, I would think you could get a refurb or something on amazon cheaper?

Now that is one F-UGLY phone

You do need one, but finding a device that has not only the dual SIM as you mention but also all of the LTE bands, including CDMA so that it will work on Sprint...big companies like SAM, MOT, HTC that make such "super SKU's" do not also make dual SIM as they do not sell those other devices into different parts of the globe. You are kind of asking for the holy grail here...good luck in your search ...

I KNOW THEY HAVE A GOOD FOLLOWING...BUT.....

How are they going to compete with the national carriers? Sorry but AFFIRM is a RIP OFF, you would be better off going to straight talk, cricket, metro, etc...

Did you see where Opera is based in Sweden? I hear you though, eventually the Chinese will own everything, from companies like Ingram Micro to the building in new York that houses a ton of US gold reserves...

Most customers have no idea what feature they want just FOMO (fear of missing out) drives most of these comments, if I don't have the latest, then what am I missing?

Europe doesn't use the same bands? This might only benefit those customers with more "global" devices

I think I will just take my GNOTE5 and my youtube,vine, periscope, musical.ly, and other services. Who in the US wants to watch Chinese and Indian content? The US content offering will be what? The phones will be $400 unlocked thank you, come again

What do you think about the 950 and 950 XL with the first one only being available at AT&T? Do you think more carriers means more success for WP or is it simply never going to be as popular as iOS and Android due to lack of apps?

Maybe they under-estimated how tough VZN and SPrint lab testing is?

Correct, Phonescoop should update this article, Sprint promo does not apply to TMO Seems like a price war between all these guys, as their average customer jumps between all 3 services probably multiple times a year

I forsee problems...

in the Article: ZTE Fanfare Lands On Cricket forum

Dual core?? 4GB ROM?? Obviously, they are trying to hit a price target but really going low end on the specs, devices like this will be a nightmare for customers who want to do more with a limited device in terms of memory and processing power...expect a lot of returns.

THIS SHIP HAS SAILED!
