"We’re rushing headlong into the era of cheap cell phones," wrote Mat Honan of WIRED on Friday (May 16). Honan argues that phones like the $129 Moto E or the $80 Alcatel OneTouch Evolve (pictured above) offer a wealth of specs and features without the intimidating price tag.
Budget smartphones aren't really budget phones anymore. And on the high end, consumers' expectations of new phones are so high now, it's hard to impress us with new devices and new features.
