Top 13 Most Expensive Cell Phones

GoldVish Le Million - $1.3 million

We were supposed to have a tie in first place, both the GoldVish LeMillion and the Diamond Crypto Smartphone costs approximately the same US$ 1.3 million. BUT, as the Guiness World Record gives that to GoldVish, I’ll take their word.
It is made with 18-carat white gold, mounted with 120-carats of VVS-1 graded diamonds, and was introduced during the Millionaire’s Fair, last year, in Moscow.

Diamond Crypto Smartphone - $1.3 million

The Diamond Crypto Smartphone has a platinum body, covered with 50 diamonds including ten which are a rare blue diamond. The navigation key and the company’s logo are made of rose gold.

Bucheron for Vertu Cobra - $ 310,000

This is a special two-carat pear-cut diamond, a one-carat round diamond, two emerald eyes and 439 rubies totaling 21 carats, all Vertu phones also link up to a special concierge service with information about travel, entertainment, restaurants and events.

Sony Ericsson Black Diamond - $ 300,000

Unlike the other phones in this list, this cellular phone is actually a power-packed phone that comes equipped with 400Mhz Intel Xscale CPU, 4-MP digital camera, touch screen feature, SIP technology for VOIP, 2.0″ 256K TFT screen and IEEE 802.11g WiFi support.

Vertu Diamond - $ 88,000

All platinum with encrusted diamonds, limited edition, only 200 were made. As the other Vertu phones, give access to the special concierge service.

Vertu Signature - $ 81,000

There are actually 934 diamonds encrusted in the body of this gold made phone, sum that to more 48 other diamonds in the keypad (why didn’t they 18 more diamonds, and made a 1000 diamonds cell phone?)

Motorola SLVR L7 - $ 75,000

I did not found any other information on this phone, besides its price.

Samsung SPH-E3200 Diamond Crusted - $ 54,000

This one has 240 diamonds, and was auctioned in a Korean site.

The phones from Gresso are made with 200 years old–the age of the African Blackwood on each phone’s case, the most expensive model features an 18-carat gold front panel.

Gold Edition Nokia 8800 - $ 2,700

Not much to say about it, other than it is a Sirocco phone all made of 24-carat gold.

Mobiado Professional EM - $2,200

Made from ebony wood, hard-anodized aluminum and has titanium buttons, limited edition of 200 units.

Bang & Olufsen (Samsung) Serene - $1,250

You can’t expect anything but an original design from Bang & Olufsen, so, you have the Serene.
