The 10 most outrageously expensive smartphones and accessories

The 10 most outrageously expensive smartphones and accessories
Have you ever sat on a bench somewhere and thought to yourself "Now, where do I spend all these millions I have?". Well, here are ten ideas for perfect purchases to spend your fortune on and show everyone that your life is a flowing river of 24 karat gold. Actually, they are so perfect that one fortune might not be enough. After all, the luxury item industry has to keep its prices high to exist, right? Not only it's a difficult place to get into (talk about shortage of skilled workers), but it's even more difficult to sustain. Those diamonds for hand-crafting lavish items don't come cheap, and your customer base is limited to the royalty, the Middle East petrol sheikhs, overachieving Silicon Valley entrepreneurs, and high-rolling rap stars.

Anyway, if you have a taste for the expensive, or a mathematical affinity for numbers with many zeros behind the decimal, check out our round-up of the most expensive smartphones and accessories according to our knowledge.

Sad thing is, that most of these don't even look good.

I still wouldn't buy any of these even if they looked good.

At least some of these phones have really expensive diamonds, the standard iPhone has nothing to justify its price.

Use your brain harder, think differently. If I try sell you my used nexus 5 for 500$ (which I bought 350$) it is not expensive but it's overpriced.

I buy two and make a torture test to the other one. Just to show how much money I've got!

Wow that site is butt ugly, it doesn't even render the picture correctly (which seems to render perfectly on other pages)

Coating consumer electronics in gold/diamonds/gems/etc is really a dumb idea. Why would you do that to hardware that will be obsolete in less than 2 years? More money than brains...

Most of the people buying iphone are using it as a fashion accessories and not as a smartphone anyway, let's make sh*t for it and earn sh*tload of money... is what the designers of these crap must have said.

Most of them seem to be for apple products, they seem to know their market segment at least.

The Gresso one is the only one that looks even remotely descent.... If it had been made in 2012 & was branded as a G'Zone on Verizon or a CAT IPS64 ruggedized phone.

Samsung GALAXY Alpha, Note 4, S5 and Sony Xperia Z3 deserve the tagline of EXPENSIVE smartphone than those listed above considering the fact that it packs both beauty and the beast, but both companies insist on making it affordable. Such a clever idea.

I'm down for people spending money that they earned with hard work(or given with a silver spoon up there arse at birth).. But 48 MILLION dollars for a phone that had the same functionality as a 1000$ phone is sickening. Buy the million dollar one with solid gold and diamonds of you want to go way if the charts extravagant. And donate some money to do some good.. Having those huge jewels on the back for 40-50 mil is not only gaudy as all hell but straight up assinine

It's better to spend $48 Million dollars for this iPhone because it has diamond and you can use by call, text, web browsing, email, video, picture, music and etc. Rather than to spend $38 Million dollars just to buy historic Chicken Cup Chinese billionaire Lui Yiqian

How about $30 for a Lightning cable, or $40 for a 30 pin to Lightning adapter?
