800x480, 1gb ram = cheap

sounds like a $250 phone, people pay more than that should cry for poor screen..

btw.. Sammy! 800x480 on 5" screen? and playing 1080p on this recycle screen?! Seriously?!

The specs you propose are impossible with current battery tech the rest is useless without the electricity to run it.
