Who are we arse end...
Their lower end phones are bloody awful, particularly the Ascend ones.
I would tend to disagree with this to an extent in that my Ascend G330 is well into its second year of use and is still doing pretty well for itself.
Mind you, that tendency is tempered by the fact that I feel that some of the phones that are being brought up as replacements are actually inferior to it, hence the reason why I haven't changed it yet. Things like "we make it thinner but you can't remove the battery" put me off, for example.
