Global iPhone 6 Costs vs. Median Annual Household Income [Infographic]

Posted by · 14744 views · Translate
Check out this infographic that examines the cost of purchasing an iPhone 6 in various countries by comparing its price to median annual household income.

The United States, South Korea, and Luxembourg are the only countries where an iPhone costs less than 2% of the average household income – putting them on the complete opposite end of the spectrum from India, Philippines, and Indonesia, where the cost is over a quarter. In Indonesia in particular, the price ($863.90) is a whopping 39.3% of country’s median yearly income. This means that if an average household chose to spend every cent they made in a given year on phones, they’d only be able to purchase two – while a household in the United States would be able to purchase 63.

I am sorry but if you live in a country where your income is so low that you can hardly manage to pay rent and put food on the table for your family I think it's outrageous to spend money on such extremely overpriced goods as an iPhone. Let's be fair: in all its beauty it's just a PHONE! If you don't have much money and still need a cellphone buy a nice android phone. Don't think I don't like Apple stuff: my iPhone 6 Plus is my fifth iPhone and next year there will be an iPhone 7 that I'll probably buy. But luckily I can afford that every non-s year. I always wonder why so many people are getting in line by iStores just before launching of a new model. Are we all so desperate to empty our pockets in the greedy hands of a multi billion corporation? I know I am guilty too, but the moment I cant afford it anymore I look in my closet where I keep all my old handsets and put my sim card in my reliable Nokia from 2004. Btw the battery of that phone lasts a week without charging. So much for innovation and progress...

How can anyone be so desperate of spending that much money? There exists so many rich people for how millions can afford them at any price since every year the sales continue to increase. Apple isn't greedy, it's just how iPhones parts are compared to cheap androids. For those who still have parents' old technology can be used to sell for a lots of money, hell I made more than a thousand helping people with e2020 and selling my old nintendos and collecovision. It's that easy to make money. So much for your hopes on innovation, there are motion piwered chargers to make your phone last with infinite power because it doesn't require wall outlets ever once you'll use them. AMPY is a perfect example. It makes your iPhone a Nokia from 2004 but is charged by movement.

They didn't put Venezuela in the Map, with the extra-official exchange rate you can buy 1 iPhone every +5 years. and with the official rate (USD that you will never have access only the government) you can buy 1 iPhone every 1.5 years. Ouch!

Someone has too much time on their hands to compare nothing meaningful.
