A fifty dollar 5 inch Android phone you’ll most likely never see. Since its inception Android has spread around the world like wild fire! Mostly because it provides an awesome user experience, but also because it is an open source operating system that most any manufacturer can pop on their handset and tinker around. Because of this Android has spawned a host of devices that range from the super high end, to the lowest of low and then there’s devices like this Mogu S1 phone. The S1 brings low end prices to a seemingly high end design with entry level specs.

The 5 inch smart phone has been slowly taking over the mobile world.

Chinese manufacturer Mogu has produced what is being dubbed the cheapest 5 inch smart phone to date! The device, for what it’s worth is $48 bucks! The Mogu S1 is said to be designed around Samsung Galaxy language and it shows. While the outside may look and even feel like a Galaxy, it falls pretty short when poking around inside.
