Brazil now added to iPhone 5S Price Index…officially the most expensive place in the world to buy one
13 Dec 2013
Our iPhone 5S price index has become extremely popular in the weeks since we published it, with thousands coming from sites all over the world to find out just where the most expensive and cheapest iPhone 5S is. Being featured by The Guardian, Forbes, MSN, Yahoo Finance and many others has cemented our index as THE place to find out the global spread of iPhone 5S prices, and now…we've added Brazil.
People who got involved in the various conversations around the web may have noted the amount of people warning about the pending price from Brazil, and they weren't kidding.
We've found that the price of the iPhone 5S in Brazil is £732.31 or $1196.32. This makes it more expensive than Jordan (£667.26 or $1090.16), the previously most expensive place in the world to buy an iPhone 5S, by £65.05 or $106.26 - the biggest margin difference between any two countries in our index.
Interestingly, when amended for GDP (PPP) per capita, Brazil doesn't jump straight in at 1st place. In fact, in relevance to the wealth of the average person there, it is the 5th most expensive place to buy one, costing 10.1849%.
We'll keep adding more prices as and when they become officially available.
