Its funny how these companies who build these so called "high end" "flagship" android phones ,that they release every 3-6 months, charge the same price for their phones but use cheaper materials. And people say apple is greedy for charging what they do. Atleast Apple puts time, effort, and quality into designing and building their phones and products. And gives us free updates that are even supported on 3 year old phones. Look at the big picture you android fans. Those companies don't give a shit about you. They care about the all mighty dollar too. Every company does. You buy their phones which they say is the next big thing, get promised OS updates that you rarely get, and if you do it's 6-8 months after your phone came out. And most of the time they lock your phone up so you can't root and update it yourself. And if try too, most of the time it becomes a useless brick. Then they tell you tough luck you have to buy a new one. So Then 3-6 months after you paid top dollar for your "Flag ship" phone they release a new one with the new OS updates. So if you want the new OS updates you have to buy the new phone, or hope and pray your current phone gets it. Who's the brainwashed sheep now?

Huh. Wow. Ok, so I've heard of this before. But excuse my ignorance. How do they get their stuff so cheap?

It's called "Wholesale Distributor Price" any corporation that has a license in their particular city in USA can obtain this license so long as they can prove they are a registered corporation with intent to sell merchandising.

Wrong. If you are a customer who is ordering parts at millions in quantity, you will get a huge price break comparing if you are only ordering 10, 100, or 1000 pieces. Distributor logic is for typical situation.

Hmm. I understand the bulk buying thing but the price for these parts are dirt cheap; ridiculously cheap. Anyways.
