The specs of the phone were refreshing; a 3.2" capacitive touch screen, physicial numeric keys, a customized Android version, a fingerprint reader (ahead of it's time!), an 8 megapixel camera and the Ulysse Nardin Rotor, which is a kinetic power system.
$1,000,0003. Goldvish Le MillionIn 2006, Swiss company Goldvish presented their first phone and the unique piece of art immediately became the world record holder of most expensive cellphone. The phone is made with 18-carat white gold, mounted with 120-carats of diamonds. The designer Emmanuel Gueit created a unique blend of jewelry and accessory in one beautiful phone.
$2,500,0002. iPhone 3G Unfortunately it looks like it's not available anymore, but this "Kings Button" iPhone by Austrian designer Peter Aloisson gets a honorable mention anyway. Made of solid 18 carat yellow gold, white gold and rose gold. The white gold line is encrusted with a total of 138 brilliant cut diamonds. But the reason for it's name is the 6.6 carat diamond which functions as home button.
$16,500,0001. iPhone 5 Black DiamondDesigner Stuart Hughes is know for his love of gold and diamonds, it's not so much the specifications of the smart phone that matter, apparently it's more important how well it's dressed up. The iPhone 5 he got in his hands is covered with 135 grams of gold and an Apple logo that's created out of 53 flawless diamonds. The price for such a phone is £10,000,000 (approximately $16.5 million USD). We could probably fill this entire top list with Stuart Hughes phones, but if you've seen one, you've probably seen them all.
Update: After some research, it looks like all those unbelievable Stuart Hughes products are fake.
