Re: Price...

I agree: if you’d said to me 10 years ago that many of us would now be spending £200 or more on a phone (or even £30 - £50 or in some cases even more on a contract (SIM only FTW, BTW), I’d have been astonished.

But, on the other hand, we are now in the strange situation where, unless you go for MacBook levels of expense, phones now have more CPU cores, far better battery life and, perhaps most bizarrely, considerably better screen resolution than the average laptop. I’d love an affordable laptop that equals the specs of contemporary mobile phones, but, no, rubbishy baseline-HD screens and meagre 4 hour battery life it is for the most part, sadly.
