Power Users on the Low End

When investigating phones such as the low end Moto G, I often glance into the comments section, and see the same argument made time and time again. "Oh well it's okay that it omits xx feature, power users aren't going to be using the phone." While I agree that due to the low price point, certain features should be omitted, I'm always confused by this argument. Are power users always wealthy? Are non-power users always poor? I like to think of myself as a power user, and I could never afford a $600 phone like the S4 or One. Am I the only one who thinks this argument doesn't make any sense at all?
