The big cost is getting then set up by the host. Some charge through the nose in NZ for the installation. Then you need a dedicated IP

These days, not really. With SNI you can have multiple SSL certs on one server. I host a bunch on a single IP and it works fine. All free StartSSL certs.

Only really a problem for people on really old Android phones or still using IE or Safari on Windows XP

Depends on the host, but withe NZ shared hosts I use, they all need dedicated IPs and charge a lot for installation. So the certificate itself  is a very small cost.

I've given up on using shared hosting, and instead host my sites myself on a $5 Digital Ocean VPS with Ubuntu + Virtualmin. A bit of a learning curve from what I used to use (cPanel), but FAR more flexible. Host about 15 sites on 1 VPS no problem. Super easy to get SSL certs installed and working.
