    Srsly everyone,
    I'm a university student at the iit BE College in west bengal and I hate when reviewers say "oh well the lumia 630 is only $50 more expensive than the 530 and a much better phone"
    but that extra $50 can buy me 6 months worth of food so i really hate rich reviewers saying 'its only $50 more

    Well, money goes different distances in different places.
    Here in the USA, I don't think there's any way $50 could be stretched to 6 months. (maaaaybe a week? few days? even for college students) An additional $50 doesn't seem like as much, but its a matter of relativity, you'll have to excuse them for that.

    Even across the USA, how far $100 goes varies from area to area slightly.

    The only way $50 would go months in the US is if you are buying discounted Top Ramen. $50 for me might last me a week for food if I was frugal. I am still waiting for a $800 top of the line Windows Phone to he tmobile.

    Lastly only $50 is about a half of days work on Minimum wage in the US, so for the United States it isn't much money.

    I'm guessing you're living in a country where the minimum wage (if that even exists were you are) is extremely low. 50$ is low in North America, you only need to work for 5 hours in Canada to get 50$ (USA might be 6 around) however food prices here are higher, on average it costs around 100$ a month per person just for food.

    As stated above, it really depends on where you live. $50 will last me a day or two on food. If I decide to eat out then it will last me a meal lol
