That's not entirely true. The price you quoted is for the parts for the iPhone. Then you have the cost for assembly, package, shipping, the cost for warehouse, shops, staff wages. Essentially all of Apple's costs are calculated on each product they sell. THEN Apple can try to make a profit on each sold device. Obviously you need to add taxes as well.
If you seriously think that Apple's profit margin on iPhones is 2X the parts price, then you seriously need to take a course in basic business.
Anonymous, 09 Jul 2020Did your dishwasher cost £50?How the dishwasher matters with what i just said???
Dear people please do understand that for kids as their first cell phone or for older people who never ever had a touch phone just button phones like Nokia or Sonny Ericsson etc will be great enough.
Tons of you use tons of features and need awesome camera gazillions of disk space and to run fortnite and other latest games.
But i really dont believe that anyone of you would buy for your 6-9 years old children Iphone 11 for example or S20 Samsung.
Every person have first to learn how to care for the phone and understand the value of its price .
Because who can value little doesnt deserve much.
My dishwasher has a better processor.
Come on guys Stop posting this crap here
MediaTek MT6737 is the reason it cost 60 bucks. All types of garbage have this chip in it. This chip makes sense only in a phone with 3 - 3.5 inch screen phones like Melrose and the like that even have oled screens and come with 2-3GB ram and up to 32GB storage too
YUKI93, 24 Apr 2020I'm only interested with the rear camera design, that does look cool. Put another camera senso... moreWhat do you need 4 rear cameras (3 of which would be virtually placeholders) on a $60 phone for? Some people can be so ludicrous.
Uncle Scrooge, 24 Apr 2020Estimated AnTuTu score: 9 000 (seriously, no joke)... But this is on theory, actually you won'... moreIt's going to be slow at but keep in mind this is a modern smartphone for Â£60
Anonymous, 24 Apr 2020Mistake in price. Correct it. A smartphone cant be 59 dollars.Chinese companies sometimes like to stick to a lower profit margin. It takes about 450-500 dollars to make an iPhone 11 Pro Max, and they make more than 2x off of that. Think about this, maybe they aren't making a profit, just keeping the price low
Lumina, 24 Apr 2020Not an unknown brand. They have physical stores here in Asia. Probably just unknown to the Wes... moreI'm also Asian, but this is really my first time to hear this brand... And I'm sure they have no stores in my city (should be elsewhere in Asia if you know some).
Jerry101923, 24 Apr 2020That price is too suspicious. No offense to Chinese brands, as vendors like Huawei, ZTE, Xiaom... moreNot an unknown brand. They have physical stores here in Asia. Probably just unknown to the West because they dont sponsor YouTube tech reviewers to talk about their products.
CompactPhones5ever, 24 Apr 2020"The rear camera system has (...) a 2 MP telephoto camera with 2x zoom."
That feeling when ... moreactually not really a bad thing, my Realme X from last year doesn't have a telephoto but its camera does 2X zoom with no issues, 5X zoom with software and a max 10X digital zoom which of course degrades the photo quality...
so you're still able to zoom with most new phones without a telephoto, usually up to 2X...
and this Doogee phone offers only 2X zoom with that additional module... questionable...
Anonymous, 24 Apr 2020Type c or micro usb?Judging by the fact that phones which are twice as expensive still use MicroUSB, I'd say you shouldn't expect USB-C.
Jerry101923, 24 Apr 2020That price is too suspicious. No offense to Chinese brands, as vendors like Huawei, ZTE, Xiaom... morewhich offence you mean dude
Today All phones, all of them.... it made in china
"The rear camera system has (...) a 2 MP telephoto camera with 2x zoom."
That feeling when a 59$ doogee phone has a telephoto camera but 800€ OnePlus 8 doesn't... Comedy gold!
2MP telephoto lens? Zoom in and get a worse photo than the Main Camera
[deleted post]They gave an honest, balanced opinion about a pretty well known brand in budget smartphones. You obviously came to troll with political BS that's completely irrelevant to this thread. Go cry about China somewhere else dotard.
