Joe from Tampa, FL
iRULU Smartphone

Joe wants to know more about the iRULU smartphone. Leo says it's a cheap, $169 phone and he's wary on cheaper gadgets because he'd get what he pays for and it's usually underpowered, easy to break, and limited in the apps he can use. Chances are, it won't be regularly updated. If he needs a good budget phone, Leo recommends the Motorola Moto G5 Plus.

But it's true that smartphones are too expensive these days.
