I voted "no" because
1- yes, flagships are ridiculously pricey
2- but no-one is forcing you to buy that, and the $100-200 phones I get for me and those around me are getting ever more excellent, and not more expensive.
So idiot phones for the ego impaired are becoming to expensive. Intelligent phones for the sane and smart aren't.
The fact that Lenovo can sell the P2 for £230 and make a profit is all the evidence you need that Apple at al are taking the piss.
