0. phoneArena 05 Nov 2013, 17:03 posted on

Earlier this year, a number of former HTC executives decided to start up their own smartphone manufacturing company, called Kazam. The idea was to offer “stunning design, robust hardware, and intuitive technology, underpinned with improved customer service.” Now, the company has announced its first seven smartphones, all of which run Android...

"... and will even replace your device if you drop it and break it. "

Awesome! Now that is really good, given that most companies charge a replacement fee if it is not a hardware related issue.

That's pretty reasonable though. If you think about it, there is really no reason they would be expected to take a loss because someone got careless and wanted a free replacement.

Granted the phone must cost close to nothing to make that would allow them to do this.

Or they can include the price of two phones and an extended warranty in the retail price like Apple does and then take undeserved credit for good customer service. And they still have the cajones to offer apple care on top of that....

cool, use your phone for 11 months without any covers, cases, screen protection, then smash it into the ground and get yourself a brand new shiny scratch free device. sweet

Maybe the company won't get attention from tech fans, but focusing on low end devices is smart. It's the only part of the smartphone market that will continue to see blazing fast growth from this point on.

If they're successful, we might one day see them try their hand as a high end competitor too.

Yeah, but they need a higher end device too. IMO, it is needed in order to compete. The phone at least look good though.

I wouldn't go that far. I would say the 3.5-4.5 range should be all midrange. Then with then the 4.5-5.5 should include both mid and high end range phones. So for a total of 10 phones. Honestly, they probably won't sale any of the 3.5 inch phones, so they probably shouldn't even make it. However, it does seem like a promising company.

The only thing that comes to my mind when I heard Kazam is the flop of a movie Shaquille o'Neal made..

Yeah...I'd rather buy a Blu phone. I've been kicking around the idea of buying a Blu Studio 5.5 to play with it and give it a try. At $170 it's kinda hard to resist it as an impulse buy.

They should have added micro-electric shaver in it, at least you can shave while waiting for the apps or pages to load on the slow processor.
