    Huawei knows perfectly well how to get low cost into phones while still using Qualcomm parts. The Lumia 640/650 series aptly demonstrate that one doesn’t need a new chipset vendor to make good performing low cost phones. Even Samsung is finding out that the Qualcomm designs are performing better this generation. MS at this marketshare needs to stay focused. And certainly Apple using only themselves as chipset makers hasn’t hurt their progress. But of course they don’t sell to the low end. But there are a range of priced models in the Qualcomm line and they serve various phone vendors quite well in MS mobile 10. Many users have commented that the 640 is a very cost effective and almost under appreciated piece of tech.
