Mobiles just keep getting better and better ,you think they cant top themselves ,but they do, now what is it now in mobiles ? 8 GB ram and 500 GB HD !! , im 56 i have seen a lot , but mobiles improving in leaps and bounds , unbelievable really even Spock out of Star Trek would'a been impressed.
Oh, sure, they have a lot of really cool software for photos, video, etc, but closing in on 1000.00? I don't think so. A BLU Life One X2 has 64GB internal storage, 4 GB of RAM for 150.00. Enough said.
Well prices are always interesting ,take the (Samsung Galaxy)( Tab A 10.1 2 GB ram)( 2016) model, because its 2 years old in Australia it's retail price is the same as its (octa -eight core 1.59 GHz )proccessor sold separately alone on Amazon.com.
The (Apple i Pad 9.7 )6 the generation ,bench tested as the 3rd or 4th fastest i pad ever produced ,retails less in Australia as its twin core 2.3 GHz A10 fusion processor sold separately on Amazon.com.
The trick with bargins is to buy something no body else wants , a perfect example is last years best , discounted to make way for what's new next month.
