While working on the review of the Motorola Moto G 2015, Mr Mo asked me, “Costing N36, 000 to N45,000, shouldn’t the Moto G be classified as mid-range instead of budget?”
I thought otherwise. The specs is budget, but the price is steep. The price already is a disadvantage of the phone. But then again, this got me thinking. Let’s looking at this from a neutral point of view : What defines the category of a mobile phone? Is it the specs or the price?
The Moto G 2015 has 1 GB RAM and 8 GB internal storage- that’s budget in my opinion. But it also has 4G LTE, waterproof, premium build and superb camera – this is mid range, and it affects the price. We are now torn in between. Is it a budget phone or mid-range phone?
We have seen phones with really good specs priced quite low. Good examples are the Infinix Hot, or the Innjoo i1s (as at when they were released). We have also seen other phones with poor specs and quite high prices (names withheld 🙂 ). Do we now excuse the high price and call them high-end or mid-range smart phones?
Personally, I think it is the specs that determine the category of a phone. Or is it the price? 🙄
