This high pricing scale will answer your many questions that'd arise in your mind.The most commonly asked question is that why iPhone is not so much popular in other parts of the world and the answer is in the picture above.Its simply due to its high pricing scale.The World's largest phone market(China) has been found out to have an iPhone with a price tag of $866.93.In other countries like India, its costs $857.76 and constitutes 22.32% of total GDP(PPP).Talking about Russia, an iPhone costs up to $921.36 which makes up 5.26% of a total GDP(PPP) including all the taxes for all of the price tags mentioned above.
