The horror: iPhone 7 price and release date in UK, Germany, France, China, Japan and others

The horror: iPhone 7 price and release date in UK, Germany, France, China, Japan and others
Want to feel better that you have to shell out at least $749 if you want to get the new Jet Black edition of the iPhone? Well, we flew over Apple's store pricing around the globe, and handpicked a few important countries from the first batch that will be getting the phone next Friday, September 16.

As you can see, in each and every one of these the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus sell for more than in the US, and in some cases (looking at you, oil-rich Norway) they go for much, much more. 

How about them $903 apples in Norwegian currency, or that $898 for a basic 32 GB iPhone 7 in Italy? Sounds more than you can handle? Just wait for the Brazilian prices when Apple's new phones hit there in the second, September 23 batch - those tags are notorious.

₹60000($903.5) for the iPhone 7 32GB. You are right, it ties with Norway prices and beats the rest.

Not even true, the 32 GB iPhone 7 plus costs €1040 ($1200) on contract (€21 per month during two years) here in the Netherlands. It's a great upgrade over the previous iPhones, but this pricing is insane!! (the Note 7 costs €600 at €21 per month). Way too expensive for me.

You have €21 a month for iPhone and Note 7, but €1040 and € 600 final prices respectively

51. Xperia14

Posts: 1193; Member since: Sep 01, 2015

No, fyou will have to pay €21 per month for both phones (the same plan). On top of that, you have to pay €1040 for the iPhone 7 plus and €600 for the Note 7.

Canada and Japan aren't so bad but the rest can f**koff lol. I don't even see how people in some countries even consider getting an iPhone smh.

So $900 for the HD resolution iPhone 7 with 32 GB of non expandable storage. With ois now, and ip67, no headphone jack. Plus there is 13% tax on top. Which means a Canadian has to layout $1017 for an iPhone 7. To me that is another F**koff.

Well yeah that is another f**koff lol. I was simply going by the prices I see on the chart mate, I simply though $814 wasn't so bad from $769 over on the 7 plus side of course. Again I don't thank it is that bad when you look at the US converted price. I could come to CA with $750 usd and get the phone right now it wouldn't $1017 to me.

Lol, look at everyone liking your comment just because you are bashing Apple and using CA's currency so you can say the base model ip7 cost $1017, making it sound like a lot more than what it is to a US citizen smh, people are so dumb.

I''m not hating on the iphone 7 (it's a badass phone ), but I still remember the "welcome to 2012, Apple users" poster from two years ago...they've predicted like ten features iPhone 7 will have that were present on Android phones...the only feature from that list that is present is the water resistant feature.

The iPhone usually gets priced at $1200 for the 1st 3-4 weeks after its initial release her in Lebanon, a country where the average annual salary is around $600. And android flagships haven't been kind either as of late, the Note 7 costs $850, HTC 10 was priced at $820, and the Nexus for example started at $780. They are much cheaper the the iPhones, but definitely much more expensive than what these flagships used to cost 2+ years ago.

- Best chipset - Top class storage - Better camera with optical zoom (soon to see how it performs against the Note7/S7) - Water proof chassis - Probably longer lasting battery - Pressure sensitive display - Comes with headphones What other uses/benefits does it offer over a OnePlus 3 to justify the $530 difference (branding not included of course)? I know the OnePlus 3 already offers the following over it: - Better screen to body ratio design - More versatile OS - Headphone jack with support for charging and outputting media/navigation simultaneously, reserving Bluetooth for hands-free calling - Fast charging

Forgot to add the following for the OnePlus 3: - Double storage capacity - Dual SIM support

You're looking at it from a value: money ratio. While that may be how some people look at things, many look for convenience and comfort in products they buy. But I have to agree on the pricing front, at least outside America. I'd like your thoughts on the phone, specifically the Plus model. If you were an iPhone 6s+ or 6s user, would this be a worthwhile upgrade?

16. MrElectrifyer

Comfort is totally subjective. I'm more comfortable with Android knowing I wouldn't be bound by any nonsense restrictions when I set out to do various tasks on my device, and when I want to upgrade to another device, I'm not bound to one manufacturer if I desire to keep my software purchases. This wouldn't be a worthwhile upgrade from a 6s/6s+ IMO. Not enough improvements.

Don't compare an Apple to an Orange. People won't see any android phone as an iPhone and wise versa. And that's because the unique experience they get from the iPhone by the combining hardware and software features. Get real. Some will love it, some will hate it. But still, you cannot compare and iPhone to any other different phone.

I agree with this for most folks.

Unique experience? No unique benefit from my over half a decade of using iOS. Only unique restrictions that made stock iOS unbearable throughout my iPhone days, always had to be jailbroken to be worth using. Nothing it offered hasn't been doable on my OnePlus One, can't say the same vice versa...

Everything is COTS in the OP3. Of course the iPhone is going to cost more since almost everything in it is custom and purpose designed. If the OP3 works for you, there is nothing wrong with that. However, you are comparing a one-size-fits-all OS and common parts to a custom system with an OS designed around it, so it is certainly not an apples to Apple comparison.
