Most Android phone makers expect you to replace your device every few years. Even Google only promises 3 years of OS and security updates for its Pixel phones (the last update for the Pixel 2 is set to drop in December).
But a startup called Teracube is betting that there’s a market for inexpensive phones that you’ll hold onto for a long time.
Earlier this year the company began shipping a $300 smartphone that comes with a 4-year warranty, after running a successful crowdfunding campaign. Now Teracube back with a $200 phone covered by the same 4-year warranty. It’s actually cheaper than that if you one of the first folks to pre-order through a new crowdfunding campaign.
The Teracube 2e is hardly the most impressive phone available. It has a 6.1 inch, 1560 x 720 pixel display, a MediaTek Helio A25 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and 13MP
