    I knew iPhone X prices are going to be high in Europe, but this guys, is absolutely outrageous:

    The new iPhone X in Germany will start (64 GB) at: $1282 which equals €1149

    The 256 GB model will start at: $1472 which equals €1319.


    Apple seriously is getting out of touch with its price policy over here.

    Yep, those are roughly the euro prices where I live as well according to Apple's online store, taxes included.

    Yep.

    Looks like Netherlands is even worse:

    1159 euro for 64 GB
    1329 euro for 256

    incl. 21% sales tax. Germany has 19%

    The US prices don't include sales tax. How would the pricing workout without VAT?

    What? I refused to make that comparison in the last weeks, but you're almost gettin' 3 Galaxy S8 for that kind of money.

    Nope, Galaxy S8 64 GB is 700 euros over here, so about 840 USD.

    That's with taxes.

    And no, I don't know what a 256 GB S8 would cost, apparently those are not (yet?) sold here.

    Yes, even the price for the 64GB is outrageous. I cannot justify this much money for a phone.

    You're a bit on the conservative side, no? €1159 is $1388...

    Doesnt really matter, the US sales tax is „adorable“ to say the least



    I love how they are focusing on the monthly price instead of the total amount, i guess they know how redic their prices are but i guess they do not realize how much germans hate to buy anything on „credit“

    Too pricey. €1.149 for the phone on its own (bear in mind you need a data plan on top) is too much for something that may last a bit over two years.

    I mean, you can buy a MacBook for €1.499, or an iPad Pro for €849 with wifi and cellular.

    Nice phone, but over priced.

    Not really, because the S8 is the equivalent of about $1000 in Sweden, and that's for 64 GB. The 64 GB iPhone X is about $1445, so less than 50% more. I know which one I'd choose.
