Have You Ever Seen A Korean Mobile In yOur Place,if not hear these things. These mobiles are 50% cheaper than the branded mobiles and have the same features that you would have in a branded mobile and some time would come with features that would not have hit the market.the quality of these mobiles would be good but the finish would not be that good and would look a little bit dupilcate..as i have mentioned earlier about the innovations,recently i saw a korean mobile having shake control which is not that popular among branded mobiles but these korean mobiles had those..so whats your take on these mobiles?

Most of the mobile phones that are cheap and abundant here in the country would be china phones. I haven't heard of korean mobile phones here, aside from Samsung and LG but, they are rather good brands. Most of the phones that I get to see being used by a number of people would be china phones with television features. Could do most of the things that mobiles phones could do and additional features like that one I mentioned. I guess it does seem catchy for those who are new and would be interested in mobile phones. In my case, I guess I'd have to see some and then have my opinion about there korean mobile phones..

The phoned that you see in the market is korean sets and not chinese..now the koreans have taken advantage of the situation and they have entered the market quietly.ultimately the chinese are being blamed,but the real thing is that when you look deep in to the matter they are mostly korean or taiwan sets.50% of the markets is with these and the rest is from china..but speaking about the sets they are really worth the money spent if you are not lookin for style...

Well, I guess there would be some of them.. Then again, they mostly have chinese characters in them than korean. Maybe I'd get to see korean mobiles in other stores. Yeah, if its not a matter of style but, functionality, I wouldn't mind getting a mobile phone like that. So far, my current phone can still suffice the needs I have so, it won't be soon.

I have not seen these phones in particular, but I have found that cell phones, their accessories, and even having work done on them is a lot less expensive in other countries. I was in the Philippines and my phone went out. I had to have it worked on, and the cost was only 350 PHP for the parts, and 100 PHP for labor. That is only about $9 USD. In the United States, you couldn't even get someone to look at your phone for that price. My question though, is this, is it possible to use these phones in the United States. Most of the carriers that we have here, require that you use a cell phone that you purchase from that particular carrier. That keeps the prices high, unless you get a discount for signing a new contract. I'm not sure if there is a way around that. Do you know?
