$10 phone? maybe during holiday sales, but not normally. Even then $10 doesn't usually buy you 16GB storage and 1.5GB RAM. If it was $10 today I'd definitely buy one.

I think "unlocked" is what's justifying the higher price. Most other phones at this price are subsidized by the carrier who locks, logos, bloats, and packages them with a SIM for their prepaid plan. Of course if that phone is from AT&T, the practical difference to the savvy individual is very little since they can easily get those phones unlocked. Although they may still have to contend with AT&T bloatware if the phone does not have a method for root access privileges.

Hmmm, 854x480 on a 5" screen... 854x480 might be tolerable on a 4.5", but 5" is really pushing it IMO.

i'd go for the ZMAX 2 certified like new from ATT for the same price.
its pretty hard to beat for this price. I've bought two of them and they are absolutely in new condition
unlock code is somewhere in the $2-3 dollar range on ebay, or you can try your luck getting ATT to unlock them.

iPhone 7s resolution is around 2x the ppi of this phone, what's your point?

My point was at less than 200dpi, you can start seeing individual pixels which makes viewing the screen unpleasant IMO. I'm not comparing this phone to an iPhone nor am I commenting on the price.

The ZMAX 2 check-out page has this *monthly fee* line. I don't plan to activate it on AT&T.

no need to activate it on ATT, I have all mine on cricket.
you need to add the monthly plan. then at checkout, you can remove the monthly plan and check out with just the phone.
