Single Status Update
If I can't get one of the following smartphones by the end of 2019 for under 360 USD:
Google Pixel XL (64/128GB)eliminated due to SoC specification(s)
- LG v20 Titan/v30+ (64/128GB)
- Xiaomi Mi Max 3 (64GB - SD card too)
- DOOGEE S90/Mix 2 (64/128GB)
- ZTE Axon M Z999 (doesn't matter - SD card)
I may settle on getting this one instead:
The Ulefone Power 5S is more than enough for me, and should last for the next 5 years at minimum G'night!

Haha, I guess. I don't really look at it that way, as a workstation and a phone are two completely separate entities.
If you actually look at phones generation to generation, they've become significantly more efficient. Things rise in price as they gain more features, plus inflation. The prices of everything goes up over time. $100 is still budget level, but there was never a great deal available at that price point; even the G series from Motorola, often considered the budget king, was $149. Having owned cheaper phones, they just don't meet the build or quality of higher end units.
@dizmo I guess. The workstation tends to have a higher priority in my mind. Not like I'll be writing documents, doing my taxes, handling large (over 20GB) files, or working with sensitive documents on my phone. I tend to do important things on a PC. The smartphone gets used when I'm out-and-about and doing small tasks of reduced complexity (I don't even listen to music on my smartphone - iPod + iExplorer makes things easy for me). I even prefer a dedicated camera over using my phone when I have the option, since the camera will have more options and features when comparing devices of similar price-point.
