Carlos Miguel, 15 Sep 2017I know that price of components doesn't include the logistics, r&d etc well duuhhh?? We're... moreagreed.
If you buy those part one by one that the price you gonna pay.
Mostly sure its in fact half that price and including all others cost its still under 50% of the new iphone price to produce.
TanTra, 15 Sep 2017The total sum of all components might be not so high as the end price, but donÂ’t let the numb... moreI know that price of components doesn't include the logistics, r&d etc well duuhhh?? We're talking about prices of components ONLY ok baby? and i highly doubt that Apple is paying this high for these components. They certainly have made a good deal and have a strong argument on their side: millions of components ordered.
But people always come with the R&D thing. Do other brands don't have R&D and develop their own stuff too? Baby c'mon...
In every iphoneX sold, Apple is gonna make 500-600 dollars of CLEAN profit, after taxes (taxes that they evade paying btw, sending their money to offshores etc). That's why they always have incredible profits of millions every quarter, baby...
Luxor, 15 Sep 2017It does make me wonder why cant they price it lower. Look at chinese brand. They all so cheap.... morewhy not sell , when they can at high price ? it's not a phone for everyone , maybe they do not want to make X as their most sell . make X more luxury /\ and its display is expensive . and no income for repairing of lots Touch ID . IF YOU CAN SELL SOMETHING at HIGHER PRICE , you should do it's business and it's economical rule ... especially in capitalist universe ... i never was an apple hater ... i was an apple denier when guide someone to buy a phone . but after X and its ugliness - i have see it in hands yet - but i hate it most for its price and its ambition i find it rude . ok beautiful ever is iPhone 4s and then 5s ... best apple was iPhone 4inch 5/5s/SE it was an apple pure device via iPad . but apple learn the game of our world AT introduction of iPhone 5C . do not blame apple people can stop buying it i mean stop buying New iPhone 10 so we want to learn like everyone here - maybe like you - i am an apple hater since NOW - sorry iPad mini and iPad 4 and macOS
It could make a difference if the price is based on one part purchase or one batch of the same part purchased. Supposedly buying multi same part would cost lower as their manufacture process(es) would be lower, unless I am wrong.
aqours, 15 Sep 2017so you mean one plus and xiaomi has the same tech and R&D like apple?r and d is not so clear . i believe they spend lots of money to new technologies and or Capitalists' income
Industry sources mean industry price. It is the price Apple is paying for those parts that's being reported
Harsenik, 15 Sep 2017FYI its not just th parts price that we have to look. The R&D is not free. Workers that as... moreIt does make me wonder why cant they price it lower. Look at chinese brand. They all so cheap. All of that marketing, R&D, factory assembling, labour cost very low when made in China. And I am pretty sure iphone is assembled in China. Apple is already ever so popular. Why is there a need for marketing. I bet they still can sell without the marketing or at least half of what they doing now. Apple users bragging with confidence their beloved iphone will sell more than android phone. Brand loyalty is very strong. As for R&D, well, that iphone X does seem to used up a lot of the budget. But i doubt iphone 8 duos even touch much of the R&D budget.
How is Xiaomi mi 6 not usable in the world. Iam in Africa enjoying it.
MootyDankKang, 15 Sep 2017Sorry, but features in this already outdated tech has already been there on Android. Bezeless ... moreIt's not about who did it first. It's about who does it better. sincerely apple :)

That's not a profit margin, that's practically double the value of the product by the face. I think it is not even worth commenting the plunder of money that represents unjustifiably from my point of view. But hey, there are people who sells a kidney due to show the bite apple ....

sr777, 15 Sep 2017What R&D costs? Copying is freeeee. Freeeee! Jokes aside Apple develops their OS and their SoC.
It's basically Apple vs Google+Samsung together (Google OS and Samsung hardware).
The research of how to sell such a ugly thing as expensive. But they just have the job done with their Apple religion, their parishioners and their herd buying blindly and religiously.
Anonymous, 15 Sep 2017If the best chip in market costs $26, why are we still supposed to have a SD625 on some Â€ 500... moreLol maybe because your informations are simply not right, maybe because i7 is way faster? Maybe because mobile processor have less than 10% of i7 instructions quantity? How the fuck you measured and compared mobile CPU with half of watt with desktop CPU wich has
80 watt in pocket to use?
MootyDankKang, 15 Sep 2017Sorry, but features in this already outdated tech has already been there on Android. Bezeless ... moreso what features that is not outdated we can get from other phone? nothing. all features on all latest phone is already outdated. what oem do right now is to improve the current features. ppl keep saying iphone has nothing new, as if the other phone has something new to offer. yea bixby.
unless some oem introduce hologram or something on smartphone, all we can get this year is improvement from past years tech.
improvement is always good. but if ppl keep complaining about no new features etc, this is their chance to build something and steal the market
umbro, 15 Sep 2017Oneplus 5, Honor 9 and Xiaomi Mi 6. very low price. OnePlus 5 is not cheap. Xiaomi mi 6 is not usable in the whole world. Honor 9 has a crappy UI nobody really wants to use. How about Galaxy S8? It costs Â€ 500, cheaper than the OnePlus 5 while having a much better camera and screen and you can still brag with the Samsung logo. I'm an iPhone user but very liberal and that's just how it is. OnePlus 5 is overpriced for its reputation and for what it does. For tech semi-experts, it is really great, but they were going down since the OnePlus One with a peak at the OnePlus 3 but since then, they gone down the road while upping the prices.
