Most phones come with a 2 year contract and people happily spend 2-5% of their annual income on their mobile phone over the contract lifetime. One who purchases a Vertu likely will spend significantly less than 2% of their annual income on the device.
Owners of these beautifully hand crafted devices are typically comfortable with their purchase and have no need to bash other people's choice of smartphone. In addition, they also will make use of the Vertu Concierge service which is the main attraction of these devices. (Vertu Concierge will happily write on this comments section at the request of the user ;) )

Haters will always be haters . . . Come on , if u cant afford it like me , dont whine over it . Spec wise , nothing to shout off especially in 2014 yet at least it's not so old . Its like saying Aston Martins are over priced and "slow" when a Nissan GTR which cost so much least can out run it anytime . Who cares about handmade leather trims , wood panel , everything else , we want cheap and fast . If everyone think like u guys , Aston , Ferrari , Lambo would have either closed down or going to since the Nissan GTR R35 came out .
Anonymous, 04 Jun 2014why..... just why.. why make such a thingfor riches man
is it the titanium body that make this phone expensive coz specs are not that great?
Aaah luxury. Look at the craftmanship in that jewel. Expensive materials, simplistic UI.. Perfect!! (People, simplistic UI spells elegance. Besides, people who buy this want expensive, not colorful. They probably don't mind changing the default setting in there or not have the time. Besides, they probably ask the Concierge anything, like send me this type of wallpaper or app and a live walkthrough. And the techie specs are more than enough. Fast and reliable is ok, but different is a MUST.)
woah. i think it can transform you to one the power rangers. with the corrent posses may be it could. HAHAHAHAHAHA.
Do my eyes deceive me??????
You know high powered tech is vaslty available when a Vertue phone has current flagship specs....Vastly available.
Cheaper brands always have been gaining access to better stuff...But this.....Really makes a difference.
Their specs are always YEARS behind.
Finally A Vertu for the 21st Century, and to the people who are describing it as a "waste of money" its their way of saying "we can't afford it, and if you can then we hate you"

What is there to complain about? Many people are employed building and selling to people who have much money to spend. This is just another interesting example of people getting others to voluntarily part with their money.
sadmanh, 04 Jun 2014The problem with Vertu now is that they use Android, it is not possible to make Android luxuri... moreActually one can make very elegant themes and other UI features, however Vertu has not done this in their previous android devices I'm afraid.
