In a world of quad/octa core processors clocked at 2.X MHz, Quad HD 5"+ displays, 2+ gb of ram, 20mp rear cameras and a list that goes on and on I would have to say that this phones specs are mostly religated to the realm of feature smartphone at this point...

So I guess the iPhone is a mid-range/feature phone according to your logic.

Kinda is. My Lumia 810 midranger from 2012 has specs that align with the iPhone. It sorta sad too, as people pay tons of money for it.

Why yes it is....When people buy an iPhone they are not buying it for the hardware they are buying it for the name.....Why else would someone spend nearly $1000 on a device that has a lower screen resolution and less ram when there are better devices out there with specs that Apple wont likely put in their devices for at least another couple of years then claim that they did it first.

Indeed. If a phone has less than 720p rez, no way it's mid range.

Hope Ubuntu gets released on the mc series. I'd love to flash it on mine

I'm super excited for anything that has Ubuntu Touch on it. Too bad we won't see anything like this on the US market anytime soon. Yeah, I could go and buy it unlocked somewhere, but since I'm on Verizon it's a bit more complicated than popping in my SIM card and go. If Ifind it cheap enough though I might be convinced to pick it up just for development purposes!
