The worst part is that this will actually be popular with the 12-16 year olds who still think Facebook is 'cool'.

I predict a flop.

I love that this 4.3" screen is "midrange", yet Apple is so damn stubborn with their small screen size.

I believe midrange here refers to the hardware specs, not screen size. 1GB of RAM and Snapdragon S4 is no longer high-end for an Android device.
