The average sales taxes in the US are way lower than the average VAT here in Europe. So European customers always get ripped off anyways. Nevertheless the devices of today are priced too high, better think twice to give these companies your money for pre orders.
And will still not sell well here in india. Last one is iPhone 4, which sold well here. They forget we're poor and there are more cheaper smartphones in the market present here now like Xiaomi.
Those conversions from Dollars are insulting to the rest of the world. Cheapest iPhone £699???
geo, 12 Sep 2017you apparently dont live in Europe...Well, when Brexit finally happens, hopefully I won't.
To all those complaining about the price Apple has set for the X, just take a look at any electronic goods.. the US always looks cheaper when doing conversions between the Euro/Pound vs US Dollar.
The iPhone ten is not worth that price tag at all, the same with the latest Samsung's.
Anonymous, 12 Sep 2017The discrepancy between EU countries is too high. 18 of the 28 countries have an average salar... moreAnd ten of these countries below 500 euros of average salary in the European Union. While the United States has a mean salary of 1535 euros, at least, that was the case last year.
Wow, iPhone X is priced like the N8, iPhone 8 is less than S8 and 8+ is less than S8+. All in my country. Christmass is going to be packed with steep discounts
Mapantz, 12 Sep 2017The average wage is higher in Europe than the US, so it evens itself out.So wait, on this logic, does that mean that a the richer somebody is the more an iPhone will cost. Poor Millionaires!
Broeckx Bart, 12 Sep 2017Hahahaha.... iPhone X costs 999$ in the USA. That equals to 834Â€. In Spain the iPhone X will ... morein US you need to put tax so after tax price is about the same
in normal countries they include the tax in the price in the shop
Mapantz, 12 Sep 2017The average wage is higher in Europe than the US, so it evens itself out.The discrepancy between EU countries is too high. 18 of the 28 countries have an average salary below 1000 euros. Taking such a measure is not fair, rather discriminatory. But good Apple parishioners will prefer not to eat in a few months and buy anything they offer.
The Galaxy S8 retails for the equivalent of US$1199 here in South Africa and we are a 3rd world country. It's more expensive than 128 GB iPhone7.
Mapantz, 12 Sep 2017The average wage is higher in Europe than the US, so it evens itself out.Try looking at a 350eur minimum wage in some countries. While in the US it's like that in dead cities.

1 round trip low cost(ex. Norwegian ) cross Atlantic flight+ US Price < EU price
Hahahaha.... iPhone X costs 999$ in the USA. That equals to 834Â€. In Spain the iPhone X will cost 1.159Â€.
1.159Â€ - 835Â€ = 324Â€ ... Why do Europeans have to pay so much more for the same phone?
My advice to European customers... Don't buy.
