Why do mid range phones have more RAM than entry level notebooks these days .....

A51 is apparently availbe from Telkom already. We're looking at getting the A71 for my fiance. If the A71 is available for a similar price (R499pm) -and dual sim- we'll probably take one. Might even take 2.
I see GSMarena don't have benchies out for these phones.

A51 is available from Telkom already, but only the black one for some wierd reason.

I love how R9000 is considered mid-range.
Yes, it is ridiculous.

I paid that for a brand new S10 on Black Friday.

I think we have Apple to thank for these sky-high prices.

They boldly went where no company has gone before with the pricing, and the rest of the sheep followed suit.

Redmi Note 8 Pro to be had for R4800 locally.

Yeah, that seems like a great alternative considering the price, but from what I understand the Head SAR value on that phone is almost 3 times that of the A51, which is a bit off putting (at least to me).

A51 : 0.369 W/kg (SM-A515F/DSN, South Africa)
RN8PRO : 0.997 W/kg (M1906G7G, Global - not sure if a South African model exists that is lower)
