DMR handhelds tend to low cost regardless of brand.

Remember, DMR was created as a digital business radio -- used on construction sites, etc. where one either prices cheap enough to replace those that get damaged from drops, etc. or makes gear in the Motorola class which costs lots but might survive the same drops.

DMR isn't an amateur radio specific mode (unlike YSF and D-Star). APCO P-25 was developed for police/fire and other public service agencies. NXDN as I recall is a proprietary mode from one company.

Miss informed here.

DMR is not a job site construction radio standard far from it. Any commercial DMR radio isn't the cheap junk sold as ham DMR. Motorola for example markets DMR to specific uses i.e non public safety. That's a marketing choice by Motorola. DMR is an open standard.
P25 is a open standard for public safety. Calling conventional P25 (which is what hams are using) is just P25. Phase 1 p25 refers to CDMA trunking vs Phase 2 which is TDMA trunking.

NXDN is offered by Kenwood and Icom aka Nexedge and IDAS branding.

Phase-1 P25 is FDMA... trunked or conventional.
