Google "Let's not mince words here: This 'Android and iPhone Update History' chart [OSNews item] is not a good chart. Oh, it's a pretty chart, to be sure artfully illustrated and researched. But this chart - done up by Michael Degusta at The Understatement and reposted by anyone unable to think clearly, apparently - is not a good chart. Or at the very least, it fails to recognize a fundamental difference between Android and iOS and the iPhone."

Not anywhere near low, you just show you're tainted by very atypical place. "Low" is something like S30 Nokia 101 (25€ or so without contract, dual sim, radio & mp3 player) or S40 X2-05 (45€ without contract' also camera, apps, browser).

We might of course limit ourselves to arbitrary label of "smartphones" - still, newer & better S40 devices encroach into this territory. Sub-100 (without contract) Android handsets are firmly within it.
Anything iPhone is at most middle. Apple openly boasts its business goal to ignore "lesser" people, to go after high-margins ones, that is why more than few variants is suboptimal.
