“I was on vacation in France in 2002 (I was 7 or 8 back then) and I visited a local toy store multiple times because they had really cool stuff. But then, one day I saw a cylinder-shaped oil and water emulsion toy with spiral stairs inside that you can put upside down all the time and then you see little drops of blue oil rolling down in a spiral. It was so satisfying to watch, even better than a lava lamp! They had them in blue or pink. I wanted the blue one, but my mom didn’t want to buy it for me. For years I was searching for it as a child but I never found it in another store, not even on next visit to France. I was so in love with that thing…but one year ago at the end of 2016, I visited a store in my country that I’ve known for years, and there I found them! I was so happy to finally see them after years of searching that I almost cried, they even had one in purple! —s4ef321550

The Budget: Of course, not everyone is ready to drop more than $500 on a smartphone or pay the ridiculous monthly fees. You also don’t have to. For a fraction of the price you can get a phone with a comparable battery life, a solid processor, and a 5 megapixel camera. And that’s not half bad.
Chinese gadget manufacturers are constantly closing the gap between big brand technology firms. Matching them in component quality, device speed, and quality of materials. You can look at a lot of Chinese electronics as copies. Another way to see it is that they are learning and catching up with how to produce the best electronics gadgets and quality devices.
