This gold-plated Trump iPhone 7 is not the most expensive handset in the bunch, but it might be the weirdest


If we have to name one thing that connects everyone who visits or works for this website, it has to be our slightly geeky passion for smartphones. We adore high-end handsets powered by sophisticated modern processors, with tons of RAM, enormous high-resolution screens, cameras with unique features, and whatever other technical mumbo jumbo you can think of.

By comparison, most multimillionaires and billionaires out there are not too hot on specs and technicalities. They'd much rather get an outrageously expensive luxury smartphone that will express their status in society and will be used primarily for making calls and doing business.

Still, staying in fashion with the latest tech is profitable for the luxury item industry, so we do get to see several offerings that combine the best of both worlds every year – highly-opulent phones that also come with modern functionalities.

This is what we have you today – 7 extravagant luxury smartphones that we will likely never own, but are interesting to look at anyways. Unsurprisingly, most posh manufacturers go for lavish gold and diamond iPhone makeovers, but there are a few members of the Android family as well. If you can think of a luxury smartphone from recent times that we should have included, do not hesitate to let us know!

A small footnote on the Vertu. That concierge function is only free the first year, afterwards it costs 2000 pounds a year

How can you be so sure that we can't buy one?

You can buy one, but you won't, so you'll never own one. Probably.

Why would anyone want to buy one?! Haha!

Even if I was Bill Gates rich, I would find those to be a complete and uttered waste of money.

I don't want a gaudy looking phone.

I've never seen anyone with a Vertu phone. Who buys them? Like the Prince of England?

I mean talk about ugly. All of them are ugly.

Dropping diamonds onto a phone is like lipstick on a pig.

The black shiny iPhone 7's, look way better than having them layered in gold and rocks. Why woudl you want to put rocks of any kind on your phone. They have no value whatsoever!

The Da Beers company really had some gret marketing to get people to fall head over hear for some frikkin rocks.

Both taste & value is 100% subjective. That is your answer. What you or I like, is only relevant for ourselves.

So you want a phone smarter than Trump? Any old rotary dialer will do.

Ridiculous prices... A no-go for me, as I do not care about social status, anyways.

I don't see why PA is always attacking Trump, the phone doesn't look weird at all, it's just a plain Iphone with Trump's image engraved into it. Stop this bias BS PA.

I think the question is, would you want a gold phone with trumps face on it? I certainly wouldn't.

Because the concept is as dumb as the man himself.
