The 5 Most Expensive Cell Phones Money can Buy

By on April 9, 2015

Cell phones are ubiquitous these days. Everyone you know has a cell phone, and most of us have smartphones.

Cell phone technology is always improving, and the world of cell phones today is much different and much more advanced than any of us could have conceived of just ten years ago. And as the technology continues to improve, the cost of a spiffy new cell phone continues to rise.

It is no longer crazy for someone to spend $600 or $700 to get the newest iPhone or Android, so as to be ahead of the curve and the envy of one’s friends.

However, the cell phones on this list make spending a few hundred bucks on a cell phone look like the wisest economic decision everyone has ever made.

Meet the $1-million-and-up club for cell phones. Prepared to be dazzled by the cost of the five most expensive phones ever produced.

#5: The Diamond Crypto Smartphone – $1.3 million

Renowned jeweler and diamond-encrusting mastermind Peter Aloisson designed this insanely decadent smartphone in conjunction with Russian software company JSC Ancort.

This phone isn’t just gorgeous – adorned with over 50 diamonds and a platinum body, the beauty is hard to overlook, though – but it is also high-tech, as Windows CE-based smartphone technology gives this phone “powerful encryption technology” to “provide secure protection of information against kidnapping, technological blackmail, financial racketeers and corrupted state officials.”

I mean, if you’re willing to drop over one million dollars on a phone, maybe you’re the kind of paranoid billionaire that worries about such details. However, for the rest of us, the Diamond Crypto Smartphone doesn’t have a lot of practical application – after all, your iPhone can perform more advanced functions than this phone, which was produced in 2007. But then again, your iPhone doesn’t have a boatload of diamonds, either.
