After a few years using several Android devices I switched to the iPhone 6 Plus in December of 2014. I had previously used iPhone's for years before my first foray into Android, so I'm pretty experienced with both platforms. Overall I prefer using the iPhone. Mainly for the overall quality of apps. I also prefer dealing with the Apple store employees versus a carrier store (or having to contact the OEM directly if necessary). But one thing that really stung upon my iPhone 6 Plus purchase was the price of the device. I purchased my iPhone refurbished from AT&T for $722 plus state tax (so $767 total). In the past I had purchased iPhone's starting with the 3G model and during my Android foray I used a variety of mid-range/cheaper devices but at one point also the S4 which I purchased at retail price. So I'm not stranger to paying $650 and up for a smartphone. But the last time I bought my iPhone it really resonated with me. There seemed to be much cheaper and quality alternatives in the Android family and yet I still went the more expensive route. Perhaps at the time I simply wanted to return to the iPhone experience. So now we have the Huawei Honor 5X. $200 for a phablet that on paper appears to compete on every level with the leading phablets (the only weakness to my eyes is the lack of dual band wi-fi). Reviews will be needed to make this comparison fair or not. But the difference price wise between the Honor 5X and most flagship phablets is enormous. I am very happy with my iPhone 6 Plus. And while I find my Apple Watch very flawed, I'm still happy I have it and I do believe in smartwatches in general. But what I don't like is the idea of having to pay big money for smartphones moving forward. Especially if there is worthy competition at a fraction of the price. So, is anybody tempted by the 5X? Does anybody else feel like we have been paying far too much for flagships phones and it's time to vote with our wallets instead? I'm curious how you all feel.
