No one gets a cheap phone because they want to have a sub-par experience filled with stuttering and lagging apps. People get cheap phones because they're cheap, and usually work just enough to justify the low price point. Take the Alcatel 1X, for example. It's neither novel nor intriguing. It's not trying to impress you. Hell, it runs on an operating system designed explicitly for underpowered devices. But it's $129, and that sure is cheap. Whether you can stomach how cheap it feels is another thing entirely.

Look, it's hard to give a shit about budget phones. They often sport uninspired designs, lack any sort of innovative features, and frequently cut corners to hit those low, low prices. And with previous phone names like Pixi, Pop and Idol, Alcatel's previous phones seemed more concerned with the latest saccharine teen singing sensation than actual tech.
