So its an expensive piece of crap. Shiny but still an iphone underneath. Samsung still smashes it many times over. Just shows you need to bling it out to sell iphones. Oh samsung don't have to do a thing to outsell iphones. WHo's better? OH OH yeah Sammy is better. Damn Puddahs

Just watched the video, and realised.. how fake is this? Like a $33,000 iPhone "casing" will be in the hand of such a crappy phone store? Just look at the video background, there are at least 20 more of these casing in the shelf there!! LOL to the believers...

But this device is already obsolete. Who would spend such money for something that's already obsolete ?

I'd rather have the money instead. If I have this phone I would sell it anyway, totally pointless.

this is absurd. with that money, i'd buy a bugatti veyron and a lamborghini aventador.

but i'd give iphone a Guinness World record for "the largest bezel to house a single button".

I think the article is meant to say a total of 26 carats of diamonds including the black diamond on the home button. I have a 10 Carat black diamond and it's much larger than that, it's massive.

This stone obviously has no depth which also makes me believe this black diamond is 3 carats at most; if it had any depth then it wouldn't fit on the circuit board.

This phone, in diamonds and gold costs roughly $40,000-$50,000 to produce, so pricing it at $15 million is just extremely ridiculous.
