kifu, 23 Dec 2014"increased pricing" Apple iPhone 6 with 16GB of on-board memory now costs 53,990 rub... moreit is because of Russian influence that our country got back in the natives residents control 20yrs ago. so what ever UN my do, russia will endure and prevail. if i could i would move to permanently live there i never forgot how hard russia pushed to earn us the freedom we enjoy till this day.
alnherco, 23 Dec 2014In my country brand new iPhone 6 64gb 700 dollarsWhich country are you from ?
No one force you to buy one, just like me. I buy a Note4 instead. Thanks !
Paying so much for a phone is completely unacceptable.
I have money to spend, and I still won't ever pay that much for a phone.
ervin78, 23 Dec 2014Don't understand overpriced iPhones when you can do same things with an 160 170 US $ phone whi... moreYou have obviously never owned an Apple product then... It's and more than just the final price that factors in when purchasing an Apple product. You get customer care that is class leading.
Is $1000 a lot for a phone? Who's to say? I just spent $2800.00 on a new 4K UltraHD TV. Couldn't it be said that is a ridiculous amount just for a TV?
It all comes down to what you can and can't afford. I'm not really sure I see the point of complaining about what consumer products cost??
Goods are only worth what people are willing to spend on them. So far it seems that Apple has no end in sight.
Anonymous, 23 Dec 2014Isn't this just an excuse to price gouge the oligarchs in Russia who can actually afford an iP... moreBecause Apple is an american company. And the mission of USA companies is to steal the money from the world. (So it'll increase the GDP of USA only).
And that's why USA wants to enforce the "Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership" on EU. USA wants to sell their junk to EU. USA wants to destroy the economy of EU.
bubu, 23 Dec 20141050 USD for a phone? I can buy a car on same price.Here in Brazil the cheapest iPhone costs 3199BRL, which is equivalent to 1200USD in the actual currency
Anonynous, 23 Dec 2014Actually it can be a very good thing. History lesssion, how did Germany and Japan become indus... moreThat's an extremely simplistic and erroneous view of what happened after WWII. I'm sure the Marshall plan and the reforms the SCAP brought to Japan played some role in their recovery. Also, for every Norway you have an Argentina or Zimbabwe. Devalued currency is a very bad thing.
Over priced junk........if they are fools enough to pay them prices then more fool them.
Anonymous, 23 Dec 2014Minimum wage in Russia is 80€ and in Moscow 199€nooo i dont believe that
Why should anyone care about Apple's products in Russia? Especially considering that all products sharply increased in prices there, not only Apple's and not only mobile devices.
Don't understand overpriced iPhones when you can do same things with an 160 170 US $ phone which is almost the cost of producing iPhone. But Apple are one greedy company,overcharging clients in an unexplainable way.
