The eternal discussion about whether the iPhone Worth what it costs, or it costs what it’s worth, call it whatever you like. Many hateful they are often quick to say that the iPhone is overpriced and that other devices offer better hardware-to-price ratio, so they accuse Apple users of paying extra fees.
Besides this moral superi ority of deciding whether or not someone is stupid based on how they invest their money, we can see how much hardware that mounts a terminal really costs. The cost of materials for the new iPhone 12 Pro is around $ 400 and Apple is selling it for over $ 1,100, do you think that’s fair?
It goes without saying that the cost of the material is not the only one that involves a terminal of these characteristics, we must also talk about transport, logistics, marketing, stores … There are a lot of costs associated with a product with these character istics, but we will explain.
- OLED screen: $ 70
- Qualcomm X55 5G modem: $ 90
- A14 Bionic processor: $ 40
- RAM: $ 12.80
- Storage: $ 19.20
- Camera sensors: approximately $ 7.50
In theory and according to Nikkie, the total cost of the hardware assembled by the iPhone 12 Pro is around $ 406, which we decided to round off to around four hundred dollars (yes, we already know that is not the actual exchange rate for the moment …).
Anyway, the price triples once it arrives at the point of sale. Even so, information has recently leaked about the discomfort of Apple investors as the company has reduced the net profit of each terminal in order to “adjust prices”.
Meanwhile, iPhone 12 Mini and iPhone 12 are gaining integers in order to offer a large volume of sales but … Is it really for one more sensor, steel and RAM, does the price increase by 300 $ between the standard version and the Pro?
