    Sounded exciting, right until the screen resolution being mentioned,
    720p should be the minimum standard for a mid-range 4.5"+ devices,
    and 1080p should be the minimum standard for a mid-range 5.5"+ devices next year.

    Besides the low resolution, the pen looks like its capacitive, in other words just as cr@ppy as the rest of the hardware, this surely ain't no "Note" competitor. Reply

    Looks like a capacative stylus, so not really any different from the ones you can buy everywhere except that it looks like there's a slot for it in the phone. I'd stay with my Note even if the resolution wasn't so laughable. Reply

    Most phone manufacturers seem to be completely at lost about how to save on features without making the phone totally shitty.

    It's either top spec or totally shitty.

    I agree. It's been the trend for years now. The only decent middle-ground phone out there now is the Moto X or perhaps an iPhone 5...both are $300-$350 new off contract. Everything else is either just too expensive or too shitty to be worth considering. Reply

    Moto X and Moto G offer the best for both price range, maybe Moto E too, but I haven't actually seen one around.

    Moto G2 looks set to be the new bang for the buck phone, with rumored 8mp camera, that is if they decide to keep the attractive pricing.

    Moto X is usually as pricey as an LG G2 where I'm at (Germany) and I think the LG G2 is much superior, unless you have a weird fetish for the form factor for the X. Reply

    Xiaomi Mi3 at $230 and Redmi 1S at $99 Off-contract are very good options at excellent prices and yeah they are now available officially in many countries: India, China, Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines ,Indonesia. Also they will be launching in Thailand, Russia, Turkey, Brazil and Mexico in few months. Reply

    Oh, didn't see this part:

    "The G3 Stylus will be launched in Brazil in September, with other countries in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East to follow afterward."

    I guess that makes a little more sense now.
