So Microsoft's Nokia X is it going to be in that 90% of low end junk you are talking about?

Wait, just because it's low end doesn't mean it's junk.. Obviously Nokia makes quality devices from both ends of the spectrum... What's wrong with you? Your questions are throwed off..

Exactly, if low end = junk wouldn't that then mean the iPhone 5C is just since it's "low-end" at an extraordinary high price? How are the low end Android phones any different from some of the smaller pre-paid carriers still selling the iPhone 4? It's a 4 year old phone and considered low end by all standers in today's market. The Apple fan boys have very little to hold onto any more so their go-to is that Android dominates due to selling millions low end junk phones....it helps them sleep at night.

Alright, so, for example, what's wrong with a Kyocera Hydro EDGE that isn't also wrong with a Nokia Lumia 521? Are we really going to give low-end Windows Phones a pass while implying total junk-ishness for low-end Androids? You can't have your cake and eat it, too.

Once again, I never said that just because it's low end it's junk... That's what people might think, but I didn't say that.. I used the Lumia as a example of a quality low end phone, and its a good example..

I think the reason people think you're saying that low price equals junk is when you replied to this comment "And how many of those android phones are junk like the ones in family dollar, Fred's, dollar general?" and said the figure was around 90%. He wasn't talking about low price devices, but junk low price devices. If he would've said low price rather than junk, I don't think there would've been the confusion you're seeing.

Do you spend all of your time creating different variations and combinations of Dark, Jedi & Unlovely. I know you're the same loser man married to a she-male. Really now:

Darkkjeddii
darkvadervip
DigitalJedi_X2

All the same loser; at least be creative. Oh, i Forgot, that's hard to do on a tiny 4-inch flashless screen.

Dude, if you're talking bout DarkJedi then you must not know that he bought a Note3... Probably has a larger screen then your device... If you're calling him a troll then I know exactly who the troll is...

Bro I'm not darkvadervip, I'm not DigitalJedi either. I don't even really bother responding to the writer of post 22, cuz it's really a complete waste of time. Anyway the tech landscape looks like it should. Google market share, apple profit margin, MS strong up and comer. Not impressed with the s5, and not disappointed really either, to me Nokia, HTC, and LG are bringing it. Apple and Samsung are cruising. Hope all is well bro.

rodneyej1, what's your next phone bro? I'm mos def gonna get the ip6, and N4 as that's my yearly combo. The N1520 and GFlex look awesome too though. I think Nokia and LG are coming on strong. What do u think?

I'm not really impressed with LG.. I most likely will keep getting Lumia devices because WP is my OS.. But, I'm extremely impressed with Sony devices... A Z2 ultra would be cool!!
....................
But, after having this 1520 I just can't go lower than a 6" screen.. I'm on a att next plan so I can already get a new device this December... Let's just say that they haven't unveiled any devices that I can see myself buying yet.. IOW.. I'm waiting for the successor to the 1520..

I was really unimpressed with the build quality of the LG flex.....

It is nothing more than a coincidence. If you don't believe it, who cares? Don't believe it. But I can assure you, I am not that SUPER Troll DarkkJeddii.

I'd like to know what broken mirror you stare into when you make these self-aSS-essments??

BTW, stop self-stereotyping: a whole white ensemble in the dead of winter, with white shoes to boot. I know they eased up on the "no white after Labor Day" fashion rule but, DAMN!!! Where's your white Sunday hat?

Oh My God, I am soooo sorry that I confused you with that TrollTramp; can you ever forgive my insolence?? I will never again confuse you with being subhuman.

Again, my deepest PAPI'Apologies.

So, what you're saying is that there is no possible way that these two can't be two different people? You do realize just how foolish that sounds, right?

You've been "so wrong" about a lot of things, but I think this may take the cake. You truly are brainless. If you even bother to read digitaljedi's or darkkjedi's post, you would see that they have two totally different points of view. Brainless, indeed....
