vertu sold more than 450,000 units in 2015. its far from dead and average price was $6,000.
its equal to 4.5m android flagships
God, they make ugly devices. Not to mention they never get updates.

Nokia did some expansive models in the 8 series wich were sold excellent and after the success of the 8 series, they invented a luxury division:Vertu. Like Toyota and Lexus. In the times when we had classic phones with hard keys buttons, it was a smart move. But in the smartphone era, it is a dead business. Now form follows functions. No place for bling bling useless adds. Even the richest people use iphone
Why these stupid billionaires buy such dead business ?? Not even a child should buy such dead business. It is so clear like daylight that Vertu is a dead dog , useless. Money flushed at the toilet. How can became a billionaire such a stupid person like this turk?? He selled guns or cocaine i think, and now he wants to makes money launderin through a clean business.

Yup, the company that made the cheap indestructible 3310 is Vertu creator. Ironic...

Contrarily in 1980-90s Turkey was recognized by being hospitable, friendly, honest, kind to each other and more importantly to foreigners. Now things have changed a bit, but not as far as you mentioned.

And if you are saying more, you are lying. Second, there are hundreds of thousands of business men in Turkey so ur comment is irresponsible.
This guy though surely look criminal, I'm not supporting any criminal.
The business seems so incredibly stupid. I don't see how it's worth a cent more than 1k dollars. This poor guy grossly overpaid.
I really wish I worked at Vertu, they should redefine what luxury smartphone is
From £175M all the way down to £50M? This Vertu brand is getting cheaper and cheaper everytime they change hands. Some idiot might be able to buy Vertu business for £3M soon enough.
