The iPhone X is in Germany so expensive that it would be cheaper to fly to the U.S. stay there for one or two days and buy it there.

    How the fuck do $1000 translate to €1150, Apple?? Why did you hire an intern to do your math?

    In india it's larger than National per capita income. What a majority fresher engineer would earn in 4-5 months. What a good engineer from elite college would earn in a month

    @ocab19 Apple is selling the iPhone X for $1319 CAD. $999 USD is $1217 CAD with the current conversion. Not even remotely as bad as the Euro one, but still charging over $100 more because Apple.

    I love Germany, but socialism usually equals higher import taxes, and higher import taxes typically mean much higher prices on electronics. It's the same shit in Brazil, or any other South American country

    @luper hold on a second, there is a big difference between "socialism" and a "social market economy".

    I know in english speaking countries the term "social" has a negatively konotion because of the cold war and the new world settlers policy "Those who not work do not eat". But in most european countries this bad konotion doesn't exist.
