Would you buy a Singapore-brand 3G handphone for $400?

It's great that Singapore company, Synrgic, has developed an Android smartphone. Unfortunately, it's not a 4G phone. See phone [here].

Processor: Texas Instruments OMAP 4470 processor
Screen: Corning Gorilla Glass, 4.7" hi definition IPS display
Weight: 133 grams (with battery)
Dimension: 135mm x 71mm x 9.5mm
Storage: 16 GB Internal Storage, 1GB RAM and a removable microSD Card Slot (up to 32GB).
Other functions: GPS, NFC (for instant payments by tapping your phone equipped with a NFC SIM card on a reader).

But who would pay SG$400 to buy a 3G phone from an unknown brand? I'd rather buy a China-made one for half that price or get a tried-and-tested Samsung.

Besides, they could have chosen a better name for the company. Synrgic looks lethargic and give the impression that the name might be a typo error.

Why would anyone spend that much on obsolete tech??

I recently switched to a Galaxy Note II that runs on Verizon's 4G network.

4G leaves 3G behind in every measurement.

I know a couple people with some early brick size portable phones.

Remove the cameras while keeping Google Play Store and you will have a device that will sell like hot cakes. Especially with a good processor and battery life.

I have to agreed with the branding of the phone name. I don't know much about what's inside and outside of the phone. But with a retarded name like synrgic. Which most people can't even pronounce it.
