When 'luxury' phones go bad

The "Louis V2" looks like a department store giveaway.


Just one look at this phone explains why people came up with phrases like "do it right or don't do it at all." As obnoxious as many ultra-blinged handsets may be, most leave little doubt upon closer inspection that qualtiy materials were used in their construction. This "Louis V2" phone, however, looks like something that might be given away for free with a bottle of men's cologne at a department store. The unimpressive specs listed on TechFresh match its design, but that's what you get for a "luxury" phone that goes for $182. You'd probably be better off with one of those free shaving kits made from faux leather.
