Question Phone or Fashion Statement

I have been in the telecommunications industry since 1989. I have recently started my own web site. Smartphone And Gadget Deals | Everything Telecom. Land Line, Mobile + Save 80% On International Roaming And Data.
I keep up to date with the trade magazines but i have one question that i would like feedback on.
Our business offers a variety of phones that are broadly the same or better spec than iPhone, Galaxy etc. at FAR lower prices.
Our business is predominantly B2B although we are able to supply individuals.
My question is - is the need to have the latest show off phone the only reason why many people spend a small fortune more than they need to, or is there a special attribute that these phones offer them that is worth all that money?
There is no criticism intended of these expensive phones but as a business our focus is on value for money for the functionality required.
More and more very well established Chinese manufacturers are appearing in the UK, Europe and USA.
Many of these are well able to give the established high profile players a good run for their money so what is the main objection or fear about buying from them?
They produce very high quality phones with leading edge technology at prices which are generally far below the main players.
So my question remains. - Do people buy a phone to suit their needs or do they want a show off expensive fashion statement?

I will be happy to answer any telecommunications question that you may have although, even after 20+ years in the business I still don't profess to have all the answers.
