Anonymous, 26 Sep 2017Given Samsung's margins, I wouldn't bet my house on it What margins? lol Samsung sells a bazillion more phones than apple yet they make less money, its that simple, apple takes I think like 60 or 70% of total smartphone revenue yet sells way way less phones, it can be explain just by one thing, they are super cheap to make, like the article states, and they sell it at inflated prices, why do you think the iphone x is $999 its not because its innovation, its because apple dint want to pay for the higher costs, so they pass them to the consumer, and keep the same margins, that simple.
If only we could "purchase" the A11 Bionic chipset for $27.50 and "implant" it into our Android flagship phone!!! :P

How to milk Apple sheep: sell last year's technology worth a few dollars for massive mark-up.
Amazing apple spell. Entire company is running on few past success innovations. They just catching up with android technologies every year, but there is already mind set in sheep's heads, let's just magic do the work and collect all the billions, brilliant.
Don't fight. Note 8's BOM is going to come out in about a month according to IHS. You can fight then.

Customer support and ext... moreR&D, staff costs and retail space do indeed cost a fair amount, but the economies of scale involved in the tens of millions of iPhone 8 variants that will be sold mean that these will only amount to a few dollars per phone.
Apple artificially inflate the price of everything they sell to add to the premium aesthetic, even with items such as the Lightning cable which they sell for $20 but costs less than a buck to make.

Anonymous, 26 Sep 201728 ,00 the A11?
If I am not wrong the SD835 costs more than 50You are not wrong.
Qualcomm holds an monopoly in android realm for the most powerfull SoCs.And even besides SoCs from competitors(i.e.Samsung,Mediatek) OEMs still has to buy "certain" amount from QC in order not to be sued over various patents.
Put on that,that typical QC chip is larger in mm/2 than Apple,and you'll get the picture...
Is the body miling process cost accounted for? It is supposed to be way cheaper with the 8 that is not made of a single piece of 7000 Aluminum. The frame must still be miled though.
Kangal, 26 Sep 2017Seems like Apple's pricing for its devices is to get its BoM and multiply it by 4.
So each bu... more$247:51 cost $699:00 sale price Gross profit $451:49 or 182.4128%
$295:44 cost $799:00 sale price Gross profit $503:56 or 170.4441%
Advertising is lower as it widely reported as a news item, Apple doesn't allow networks to advertise, the ads used are either sold or provided by Apple, the network add their logo at the end
Apple do advertise, but it will be the network, you won't see specs overall, at best these are music videohttp://www.gsmarena.com/iphone_x_iphone_8_and_iphone_8_plus_release_date_and_pricing-news-27233.php
It is articles like these, and that the IPhone X at $999 is expected to be a another sales winner wow
And people that buy these iPhones for nothing but the fancy and expensive brand name & that Apple logo on the back also spend $-1000 for investment of their brains.
