This even applies to the first smartphone a parent offers to their teenagers. The need is there. Brands and carrier need to do a better job advertising their different lines properly so that people can be made aware of alternatives to the $1000 smartphone.

Some food for thought here. Often enough, the best of the best isn't always the best for us.
