Kudos to you for ACTUALLY doing some comparison shopping!

But the problem with sales floor is that most phones seem attractive in the store particularly when you are comparing price points a few hours in the store or even the 14 day trial is not enough time to get a true feel for the phone.

What you are grading is initial quality. MOST MANUFACTURERS can overcome this hurdle and dupe a consumer into believing that the off brand will hold up as well as the higher end brands and they simply do not,

Common issues with lesser phones include but are not limited to, battery and charging issues, screen failure, overheating, crashing, freezing up and locking and lack of support from the manufacturer.

In reality its NOT a "$50" phone its $50 PLUS a 24 month commitment that affords you a subsidy that only comes around every two years!

Friends don't let friends buy cheap phones!

Whatever you pick has to hold up to all your needs, wants and demands for 24 months as your bill will remain the same no matter what phone you buy as a smartphone plan is a smartphone plan and you will have to pay that for 24 months... The difference between the phone that you will truly love and it would be pleasure to use for two years and the phone you will hate and curse for that tome is about $150 ... About $6 a month over 24 months... And that $6 a month will be the difference between phone hell and phone nirvana ...

But if you MUST have a low cost phone

1 iPhone 4. 8GB $0.00
2 Galaxy S II $49.99
3 iPhone 4S 16 GB. $99.99
