its the branding too.
Apple is expensive because its Apple.
Any branded clothes uses the same cloth, the same thread purchased from the same manufacturers as lowcost brand but, an Armani shirt will cost more than a GAP.
To question such things is ridiculously stupid.
Apple is expensive because its Apple.
Armani is expensive because its Armani.
how to get to that level of expensiveness is a totally different conversation altogether

iPhone chip is designed by Apple and created by Apple and manufactured by samsung, so samsung has nothing to do with the chip itself they are just slave who build what Apple designed.
True opinion, 18 May 2015Just don't want anyone to have same problems I had. Apple OS is one of the safest out there I'... moreIs it possible that Apple installed a program that breaks the phone when it is jailbroken?
Anonymous, 25 May 2015If iphone hardware is old, like the dual core and low mp camera, low res display and such, why... moreYes, you are right iphone hardware is old. iPhone HW designed and created by Samsung. while Samsung is putting latest hardware in their phones.
Actually, entire cost of iPhone is from Software. Despite of using old hardware Apple is capable of doing great job in comparison to any other phone.
If you watch their OS launch seminar, you will get to know what innovations they do in software. And they charges from us.

You do not understand, thats why you are confused like all those android fanboys and start blaming different unrelated parties.
I have had my I phone 6 plus 2 months initially I thought it was a dream, then all hell started I uploaded a Face Book 1 minute video and lost all my contacts then My Gmail was hacked and I again lost all contacts. Having your email hacked is the hardest impossible to fix on a I phone ! I still have it and a fraction of my old contacts however the good news is after the worst events no going from Gmail to Craigs list to Ebay to uploading pictures its like perfect ! Like an engine with 100k miles and you rebuild it the Block is called seasoned ready to perform ! I wouldn't trade it now for a new I phone !
Very Happy at a emotional price worth it ?
I guess it must be.
If iphone hardware is old, like the dual core and low mp camera, low res display and such, why does is still expensive? Where are the expenses coming from? What make iphone more expensive compare to latest hardware that exist in android that sells cheaper? Iphone is assembled in China but why it still expensive? Everyone always think that China is cheap. Is it status that make iphone over valued or is it the quality? More than that, iphone 5c that is made from plastic is not any less cheaper than iphone 5s, why?

Good Buy, 25 May 2015Buy a Xiaomi for 100$. Immediately trying to sell it, gets you nothing. Buy iPhone for 1000... moreYes they hold their value, but I would prefer them to actually be better than the competition. In the 1000 dollar phone race, iphones are usually at the bottom. But if you want to compare it with a Xiaomi that is 10 times cheaper and gloat that the iphone is better, maybe that logic does indeed deserve an iphone...
Buy a Xiaomi for 100$. Immediately trying to sell it, gets you nothing.
Buy iPhone for 1000$. A few years down the road you still can sell for good price.
Same with Mac. Good resell value, you buy alienware? A few years sell for nothing, or you will have a hard time selling, unless you bundle with MS Office or something.
Nothing can beat the fact that iPhones and Macs are more resell-able, and there is huge demand for it.

Try explaining your logic properly and stop blubbering on about stuff you don't understand.

In simple English investment means you buy a phone which will still be pertinent in couple of years to come. I tried to adhere to context to simply aid your psyche. Cease to be delusional and ignoramus. Where is Note 1 and Note 2 where is s4 and s3 and s6. Where are your all Samsung tablets because they are also Samsung note tablets. IPhone means investment unless you're fiscally reckless
