Ever wonder what it actually cost’s to make your 400$ iphone?
And yes ofcourse, there are lots more dollars not accounted here that go into research and design and packaging and such. That profit margin’s just on the actual physical parts; they don’t literally make that much money every time you buy a phone. But it’s still fun to quantify the hardware, and to see how many ways a phone company can burn through $190 of parts.
