I read the headline and the article and the only phone that came to mind was the Moto X made in Texas. Because every other phone is NOT made by American companies they are made overseas.

And the first example you give is an Apple device? Really? Ever hear of Foxconn in China?

I personally prefer Android but I also respect if someone likes IOS or WP. Somebody in an earlier post mentioned that the iPhone, though comparatively limited in functionality & customization, simply works out of the box, much better than any other phone. Can't help thinking that this line of thinking is well past it's sell by date.

Take the note 3 as an example. I can't think of too many features that are supposed to work out of the box, but don't. Ditto the z1 & the z2
