You have to factor in the additional costs:
- R&D - could be big
- distribution - nobody will sell your phone without getting a chunk. Can vary from 10% to 50% of the retail price.
- warranty returns
- product support - both as tech support and future updates
With Apple charging 5x the BOM for a lot of its stuff, 2x is not unreasonable if you expect any kind of after-sales support (such as updates) and any kind of R&D (not just cloning the AOSP).

IpsDisplay, 12 Sep 2020But explain why the mi 10 ultra, and many other 865 flagship phones cant do it?This guy has been exposed several times as a trrrrrrolllll.
Keeps finding faults plaguing some units of a particular phone on xda or other forums and repeatedly trrrrollls with them in every comment section.
He is using some 50$ unheard cheap brand with a fake Apple or Samsung logo on it.
He has zero idea about the issue you discussed which is plaguing other flagship phones.
MrKing, 12 Sep 2020Even some cheap phones can do this. No Gcam.
The bill of materials for This phone alone costs 11 times more than your phone.

MrKing, 11 Sep 2020MTK chips have poor ISP, prone to software issues.Oh really? I see the k30 ultra and redmi 10x being able to take a picture of a red hibiscus with no clipping
Which is an incredible feat, I'd say their recent ISp is great
The camera cost should be 20$ higher.

Mediatek Chip is punching way above its weight... moreDimensity phones that have buggy OS and weak ISP. Straight into my dustbin. Samsung logo all the way? Gonna ditch it. Samsung used to be a prestige brand and Apple wasn't (with embarassing iPhone 6, 7, 8, X). Now I think it's the other way around.
Proud to be part of a premium ecosystem.
Onyems Daniel, 11 Sep 2020If it is $550 then why is it so costly they added $700 is from where, Samsung has some explana... moreWhy would they have to explain something!? (They didn't even had to explain why did they use Exinos SoC in Note 20 Ultra, even after it's debacle in S20 series).
They make a price, and people is paying for it.
So, that means price is right....there is nothing to explain or fix.
I know I won't be supporting them, or other greedy companies like Apple, Oneplaus, Sony....I will never buy a phone for that kind of money.
Dont know if its a stupid question where is the mother board?

Even Helio G90T in Redmi Note 8 Pro gets very warm quickly and drops in performance in mobile gaming. It does deliver only a short burst of high performance.
Anything that China tells you, you trust em.
Still, never touching Mediatek chips that go straight into mu dustbin. You're trolling.
