If you think the iPhone X's $1,000 price tag is expensive, see how much it costs around the world

7 days ago   |   By

Apple set a new pricing bar for ultra-premium smartphones with the iPhone X, which costs a whopping $1,000 in the US.
Indeed, few phones, at least their base models, break the four-digit price mark. $1,000 is a lot to ask for a device that may only last a couple years before you buy another one. We haven't tested the iPhone X's performance yet, but even if we did, it would be hard to predict how long Apple's new A11 Bionic chip turning the wheels inside the iPhone X would carry it before it started to slow down.

But in the meantime, Apple said, you can use any charger that uses the Qi standard - the same wireless charging format that Samsung and other phone makers use.

Apple recently announced its shiny new iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X on Tuesday, and they bring new features and faster performance than any previous iPhone.
However, I'm here to tell you that you that Apple is still selling the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus for $450 and $550 repectively, and they're an absolute steal if you're not a heavy smartphone user. Better yet, you can get the 32GB iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus refurbished by Apple itself from Apple's Refurbished Mac Store.
