Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus are cheapest in the U.S., most expensive in France

Other data shows that if you live in the U.K., and spend less than £27 British Pounds ($42 USD) a month on a Pay As You Go plan, you are better off buying the iPhone 6s at retail instead of signing a two-year contract and buying the phone for a subsidized price. The tipping point for the Apple iPhone 6s Plus in the U.K. is £26 British pounds a month. Pay less than that in the U.K. for a heavy use data plan for the iPhone 6s Plus, and your best bet is to buy the phone without a subsidy.
Lastly, a chart shows the launch price and current value of past iPhone models. All of them are worth less than their launch price except for the OG Apple iPhone. Probably due to its historic significance, the original iPhone is worth £238 British Pounds ($370 USD) versus its launch price of £235 British Pounds. The Apple iPhone 3G, for comparison, is now worth only £30 Pounds ($47 USD) after launching at a price of £299 British Pounds in 2008.

Everything's cheaper in the US than in Europe. E.g The Nexus 5 was $350 in the US, and in the UK it was $466.

Yep, you're right. In The Netherlands costs the iPhone 6S 16GB €849, £618 or $960. The iPhone 6S Plus 16GB costs €949, £691 or $1073. The iPhone 6S Plus 128 GB is the most expensive one, which costs here: €1149, £836 or $1300. I think we're the most expensive country. :P

Which is why a lot of tourists from the EU are buying their iPhones when on holiday in the US (especially at the 5th Ave. Apple Store in NYC). Now of course European auto brands tend to be cheaper and have more options there than in the US, even the BMWs made in the Charlotte plant. Same with the Asian auto makers.

Base, 16GB iPhone 6S is probably gonna cost 3100 PLN which converts to £534, which is almost the same price as in Germany or UK. Of course, it's worth mentioning that average person in Poland earns about £224, compared to average person in Germany who earns 4 times more. But that's just due to corrupted government, law and people, it's by no mean Apple's fault.
