5 luxurious smartphones that you can't afford

pixel or processor count. And while some of the devices we'll highlight below offer an up-to-date specs sheet, others—quite understandably—are focused on areas other than the internals underneath. Like crafting a truly posh casing.Obviously, with such luxury items, the usual specsorama takes a back seat, as these aren't meant for your neighborly Android geek who's always after the highest
And so, before we jump right into this one, you might be wondering just how expensive devices we're talking here. We'll put it this way: the cheapest we were able to do was $2,000, and that's for a... feature phone. Yeah... let's just dive in:

Do you really think we can't afford any of them?

It's not that they think "nobody who reads this can afford these phones". It's simply a creative way of saying it's an article about really expensive phones. If the title was "Some expensive phones" then it just wouldn't be as appealing.

@kkmkk Those who can't afford them aren't losers. Not all those who deserve to be rich actually are; be happy with your financial status and do not belittle those who can't afford what you can. If you can afford those devices, that doesn't mean those who can't afford it are "losers". Stop being a prideful @$$. And grow the F up!

From what I have seen who would want to spend 2k on an old obsolete phone just because it is made of titanium. A watch I can see because it may be rare and should work 2 year's down the road. With in a few years those things won't have a network to connect to. Technology will be 5g and beyond....

That Kustom EGO is literally a Nexus 5 in a "fancy" case. Both share the same SD800, 2GB RAM, 2300mAh battery, 4.95" 1080p display. Even the camera/button/sensor/SIM card slot placement is identical. But you can't find a single word about the Nexus 5 on their site, as if they claim this device to be their own, while it really is not. It's more like a custom made Nexus 5, if that makes sense, Kind of odd. Want to know more about this.

PA. I think this title is so rude saying we can't afford them. You don't know any of us to put such a title. Many of us can afford these but no we don't want these overpriced pointless devices. I'd rather an iphone and that's saying something.

I love titanium, but I dont want to spend such a huge amount on a phone. I can take titanium anytime over cheap aluminum if it is priced right.

And techieXP son of samsung always thinks that iPhone is ridiculously priced, and always tells that Samsung is never wrong and is a savior of mobile world, and he is the only one in the universe who has iPhone 4 with 1GB of ram and often tells that io9 lags on iPhone 4, don't know how did he installed io9 on iPhone 4, again as always iPhone lags.

You're either on the wrong tab or going off on techieXP for no reason. Samsung isn't even mentioned in the line up, and I'm no big samsung fan.

Always wondered why expensive brands like Vertu don't make the effort to at least change the icons so the whole character of the phone is unambiguous premium.
