Cheap Smartphones Are Good Enough Now To Be Exciting

Mat Honan at Wired:

We see a lot of phones here at WIRED. Right now, for example, we’ve got the HTC One M8, Samsung Galaxy S5, Sony Xperia Z2, Nokia Lumia Icon, iPhone 5s and all sorts of other flagship devices. But what I’m really fired up about are a handful of cheap handsets. The amazing cheap-o handset is the new iPhone.

It’s genuinely great that you can buy a capable smartphone (for most people their daily ‘computer’, their camera & their way to stay in contact with others), for under $200 now.
