    Google has set the best example for Nexsus in terms of pricing. If any brand, which directly come from china and want to sustain in the market, they would have to reduce the price at-least 30 to 50 $ in the same segment.

      Yes, Google does a good job at pricing their Nexus line. But, we do have to keep in mind, that Google makes most of it money off of Ads. So, the more they can get their products into people hand, the better. Google is willing to lose some money upfront on product sales and make up for it later. ZTE doesn’t have that ability. They are a hardware maker. They make their money off of their hardware.
