Google While Microsoft is unveiling all about Windows Phone 8, Google ruined the party a little bit by 'leaking' all about Android 4.2, the Nexus 10 tablet, and the new Nexus phone, the LG Nexus 4. There's some pretty awesome stuff in here from Google - except for the fact the devices themselves are kind of ugly.

This isn't about noname brands. Are you aware that the iPhone 5 is $185 in material? The by far biggest chunk that increases the end-user price is neither QA nor sallery nor anything else (at the manufactor side - hey, foxconn, cheaper then cheap) that contributes to the quality of the product, its all the R&D and serviced that makes the final product + profit. The reason why iPhone is perceived as good quality is the overall product, design, software and services. Thats why it sells and why the high profit margins and R&D investment are possible. Assembling the hardware together id by far the lowest contributor to quality. But yes, every of that components can turn a otherwise good product bad.
