. Back then; the cases were notorious for
, especially around the dock connector and headphone jack. Since that time, Apple has experimented with other casing materials such as
These days, evidence is mounting that Apple is looking to revisit the use of a polycarbonate case, this time in a "budget" iPhone model. New images from Techdy claim to show a fully assembled model, complete with its 4” Retina display.
As for the quality of the aforementioned case, Techdy claims:
When we hold the budget iPhone in our hands, the plastic chassis does not feel cheap at all. Unlike the plastic build quality of the Samsung Galaxy phones, the plastic material used on the budget iPhone feels more sturdy.

I'd buy that phone!

Why can't I get a 4.3 inch 720p Snapdragon 600 SOC 8mp OIS Camera with Stock Android for $199 no contract no commitment?
That should be the next Nexus 4. If Bear can put out close to that for $199, why can't Google?

The N4 at $299 isn't that far off. There's more to component costs than raw specs, though.

"Why can't I get a 4.3 inch 720p Snapdragon 600 SOC 8mp OIS Camera with Stock Android for $199 no contract no commitment?"
That is a little bit low for reality. It's like why cant I get a new BMW 3 series for $15,000.
"That should be the next Nexus 4. If Bear can put out close to that for $199, why can't Google?"
Have you ever even heard of Bear? I have not, but they are clearly in the cheap clone market. Wanna bet the phone is uber-cheaply made and has ROM issues as well as high failure rates? Very likely non-existant tech support as well. You arent going to see this sold on any legit carrier either.
