Crazy: The iPhone X can cost over $3,000 on Amazon


Amazon is not among the official channels that are offering
Apple’s iPhone X, but various third-party vendors can use Amazon’s platform to re-sell the new handset. Right now, if you’re searching for an iPhone X on Amazon,
you’ll find that you can order one for prices significantly higher than those available at Apple and
major US
carriers.

 

One particular third-party seller says it can ship the
iPhone X in 2-3 days – which sounds nice, given that stock shortages are
expected to affect the device’s general availability. However, to get the iPhone X in
2-3 days from said vendor, you’ll …


How much will an iPhone X screen repair cost? Apple now has the answer


If you intend to buy an iPhone X (now that it’s
available to pre-order), perhaps you should first know that repairing its 5.8-inch Super Retina screen will be a pricey affair. Of course, the new smartphone itself is expensive,
being offered for $999 (64 GB) or $1,149 (256 GB), so we’re not surprised to
find out that repairing it will be anything but cheap. 

 

According to Apple, a single iPhone X screen repair costs $279,
while repairs for “other damage” will cost users a whopping $549. To be clear, these

Indian carrier will repurchase certain iPhone models after one year, for 70% of your cost

As Apple’s fortunes in China have turned south, the company has tried to pump up sales in India. Of course, as a developing economy, the price of a new iPhone is rather steep which is why the Apple iPhone SE is being manufactured in the country. As recently as last year, the top selling iPhone in India was 2013’s Apple iPhone 5s. With the mathematical prowess of an options trader using algorithms to figure out a particular trade, a wireless operator in India has figured out another way to get rupee-starved Indians to buy more recent iPhone models.

The Jio telecom unit owned by India’s Reliance …

The cheapest LG V30 model will cost $840, but Europeans might pay a higher price


LG is trying to compete with Samsung and Apple by launching a slightly cheaper flagship, but it looks like that won’t be hard considering the high price both smartphone companies are expected to put on their top of the line devices.

Moto's Gamepad mod to cost $79, available starting August 25 exclusively through Verizon

Motorola’s Gamepad mod is one of the most obvious application of the company’s mods concept, taking advantage of the low-latency input while also acting as a handy battery pack. So it’s a bit surprising just how late it’s making its debut: we’ve already seen the release of the Moto Z2 Force, the second flagship in the mod-compatible Z line of phones, but the Gamepad has still not been made available for purchase, despite being announced all the way back in February.

This will change soon, however, as the new mod now has an official release date: …

Should an iPhone cost less outside the United States?

Apple’s iPhones are not only the best selling smartphones in the world: they are used for a long time and they don’t lose their value as quickly as other phones.
But when it comes to the price of the iPhone, there are some staggering differences: in the prosperous United States, it costs $650 to get an iPhone 7, but in countries like Brazil and Turkey you might need to pay 50% more to get an iPhone, and while Brazil and Turkey rank as the countries where it’s most expensive to buy an iPhone, there are many other examples where the price of …
