With my Starmobile Astra, this is not the case. The battery is a bit lacking but i fixed that with antutu battery saver and cpu master. What is your experience?

RE: If a product is cheap, does it mean it sucks?
I don't think that means that it sucks. Cheap is a relative term. If you say something is cheap, then that generally means there are substantially more expensive items. I think if it's cheap, that just mean it has a much lower price. Many times it is also a low quality item. I think that is something you have to see for yourself really.

Not necessarily.
It really depends on the maker and the type of product you are getting.
With phones yes, cheap usually does mean a crap phone.

No not really, it could mean that theres a deal etc. But when it comes to phones then yes.

It doesn't necessarily mean that it sucks. Try it out for yourself, see what happens. Thats the only way you'll know for sure.

RE: If a product is cheap, does it mean it sucks?
Cheap usually means that the materials used in manufacturing are worse, less money is spent on research, and the actual design of the device is as great as in the case of other devices.

But there's something called the law of diminishing returns (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diminishing_returns) which covers the price distribution in most markets. Rather than spending a lot of money on a Samsung Galaxy S3/4, by spending a lot less money, you can get something that just a little bit worse.

Not really. Some cheap things also are worthy buying for their good quality.
Many Chinese electronics are cheap because they are purchased from manufacturers directly by the sellers with lower price.
Many shopping website do like this, such as Suning.com, JD.com and mentoo.com ....

RE: If a product is cheap, does it mean it sucks?
Not always. You should always do some research and try to read as many reviews as you can. Sometimes the cheaper option offers the best value for money but at other times it is worth spending the extra money for a better quality item. A cheaper product probably means that it's not as good as an expensive product, but it doesn't mean that it's no good at all. This is where research comes in.
