If a phone doesn’t have a unique feature (read: gimmick) or isn’t top of the line, chances are it’s going to come and go like the latest fashion trends. Except everyone won’t be clamoring to get it, it will simply be forgotten. However, Hisense has done something smart… very smart and no it’s no gimmick. The Hisense Infinity Elegance 1 is cheap. Not because it was…
Good guy Oukitel - sharing its power to the high-end rivals. I’m a huge fan of underdogs in the smartphone industry.

Sony's E range has always dived into the shallow pool of the smartphone pond.
