Re: The Smartphone
Broadway , much good luck to you in your search . The process to buy a smartphone today is beyond complex . I consider myself a savvy shopper and someone understands true cost of ownership . Once you pull back the layers of the onion the fees add-ons , and mysterious pricing of the phone itself is enough to make anyone run from their local phone store screaming . Not only are the phones priced out of most people's budgets but the monthly fees with data additions are incredible . Trying to get a phone with a monthly fee less then hundred dollars is a challenge . Eventually we are going to reach a saturation point on the smartphone market , the enhancements to the next new model are minimal . Phone manufactures are going to need to find a way to drive purchases of their phones that have little to no extra value added features . I suspect the tide will turn but not before the pain is intense for consumers .
