The 10 Most Expensive Cell Phones in the World

With all the hoopla surrounding the Iphone (and its fluctuating pricetag) one might might be lulled into thinking that the Iphone is the be-all and end-all in the world cell phones. The truth be told though, the Iphone is more like the Corvette of the cellphone industry, relatively expensive to the average consumer, but in the bigger picture, it’s a cheap horsepower contender and drop in the bucket when compared to these high rolling entrants into the world of cellphones. And yes, the top cellphone contender is more expensive than the Mercedes Maybach, the Ferrari Enzo and the Bugatti Veyron!


10. Prada phone by LG

Price: $780

Prada phone by LG
The Prada phone by LG just narrowly edged my personal favorite, the Gold Striker Gold 24-carat Iphone to make the list. At just 1.2 cm thick, the Prada phone, like the Iphone, has no buttons and is operated solely by way of the touch screen.


9. Porsche Cellphone by Sagem

Price: $1,600

Porsche Cellphone by Sagem

Designed by Porsche, but engineered and manufactured by France-based Sagem, the Porsche handset is currently available in Britain, Dubai and other oversees markets. The phone is expected to make its U.S. debut in 2008 possible through Porsche Dealerships.


8. Mobiado Professional EM

Price: $2,200

Mobiado Professional EM
Made from ebony wood, hard-anodized aluminum and titanium, Nokia driven Mobiado Professional EM handsets are individually unique due to the variations in wood patterning per instrument. It features a 1.3 MP camera, music playback and an FM radio.


7. Gresso Black Aura Collection

Price: Up to $13,000

Gresso Black Aura Collection

Gresso boastfully claims that its Black Aura cellphones are 200 years old – due to the age of the African Blackwood on each phone’s case. Black Aura series ranges from $6,500 to $13,000 with the most expensive featuring an 18-carat gold front panel.


6. Diamond Iphone

Price: $41,000

Diamond Iphone
The diamond iPhone boasts an impressive 420 diamonds at a total weight of 5.65 carats set in 18K white or yellow gold. It can also be ordered in white, black or pink sapphires. The phone, by UK blingmeister general Amosu, at a blustering $41,000 is sure to not make any “Will it blend” videos anytime soon.


5.Vertu Signature

Price: Up to $81,000

Vertu Signature
Vertu, a subsidiary of Nokia, claims that it took expert craftsmen some three years of training to learn to make their phones. This classic, the Vertu Signature, contains 943 diamonds on its bezel and 48 more on its keypad, each set in place by hand in Switzerland.


4. VIPN Black Diamond Smartphone

Price: $300,000

VIPN Black Diamond Smartphone
The creation of Swiss manufacturer VIPN, the titanium construction known as the “Black Diamond” is a one of a kind actually a 1 of 5 to be exact, and for generously shelling out 300,000 big ones, you get a Quadband phone with WiFi and Bluetooth, a 2 inch 256K TFT screen, 4MP camera, VOIP and 2 huge diamonds.


3. Bucheron for Vertu Cobra

Price: $310,000

Bucheron for Vertu Cobra
Parisian jeweler House of Bucheron linked up with Nokia subsidiary Vertu on this limited-edition series of eight cobra phones, which include a two-carat pear-cut diamond, a one-carat round diamond, two emerald eyes and 439 rubies totaling 21 carats. Vertu phones also link up to a special concierge service with information about travel, entertainment, restaurants and events. Other Vertu phones sell between $4,350 and $81,000.


2. The Diamond Crypto Smartphone

Price: $1.3 Million

The Diamond Crypto Smartphone
Designed by diamond encruster extraordinaire Peter Aloisson The Diamond Crypto Smartphone is sometimes quoted as the World’s most expensive cell phone (depending on exchange rates). Russian firm JSC Ancort has developed a Windows CE-based smartphone ready for Aloisson’s bejeweling that employs “powerful encryption technology” to “provide secure protection of information against kidnapping, technological blackmail, financial racketeers and corrupted state officials” — sounds like marketing speak for a password-protected wallet app. Of course, with its $1.3 million price tag and 50 diamonds (10 of which are blue) you might start to have more trouble with mugging than with technological blackmail.


1. The GoldVish Le Million

Price: $1.45 Million

The GoldVish Le Million
Guinness World Records certifies this GoldVish phone as the most expensive in the world–1 million euros, or about $1.45 million. The odd-shaped device is made out of 18-carat white gold and features 1,800 diamonds totaling 120 carats. A Russian businessman bought Le Million for his wife last September at a luxury goods fair in Cannes, France. Don’t have a spare million for this made-by-request gadget? Geneva-based GoldVish has plenty of expensive phones in its lineup, including models with gold plating and diamond-studded cases.


  1. Nice list. Some very ridiculous items phones there!

    Although I must point out there are many regular phones more expensive than the LG Prada, and the comment that it has no buttons is entirely false. It has 8…

    • i have the lg parda.please tell me what phone you can get at a regular cell phone store thats over $ canttt.i love my phone.and yes it does have 8 buttons but its mostly touchh

      • the htc touch hd2, is MUCH more than the prada

  2. Hmm…. I think I’ll stick to my cup and string method of communication before I get one of those, hehe.

  7. seriously though, who’s actually gonna spend money on these phones?? might as well get a great car like the article said. Besides Iphone and nokia N95 are probably better than all of these phones (IMO)

    • I was in beverly hills this weekend and ppl were buying them! seriously!

  11. that shit is crazy web phone

  12. I think that it’s very crazy to sell phones at such a price. I pefer buying a car or a beautifull house!
    You can stop this!

  13. Like Adam Carolla said: If you put a $9,000 diamond into a three dollar milkshake, it isn’t a $9,000 milkshake, it’s a milkshake with a $9,000 diamond in it.

  14. The iPhone is on there. It’s number 6. Covered in diamonds.

  20. Bre mahengay set nay.

  21. Two questions:

    1- Why on earth are the same people who searched for the “most expensive cell phones” criticising the prices of the phones?

    2- Do you really think that the people who can afford such things consider these items to be ordinary phones or they need a nice house or car??!!! LOLOLOL

    • Yea ,its a nice smart phone but people out there are dying and starving. Some people cannot afford two square meal in a day ,let alone using 1.45million dollars to purchase an ordinary phone. One can give away that money to the charity and make profit from God’s blessing. Whether is diamond or gold ,they are all man made,it cannot last forever. So there is no need of wasting your hard earn money extravagantly. Be wise”””

  22. I am 85 % complete in my resort and I have been put the tak to find the best cell phone for al managrs and exec temam memebers blackbery storm has sent me theres and so has ipod and was hoping to get one from you to comparye. we are talkeing aroudn 300 phones. John

  26. My husband has bought that luxury mobile phone. Goldvish ! Yeiyy,he’s got it. Very2 cute n nice phone..

    • Your husband is a fool for that matter. Even if he is the most richest person on earth, he ought not to buy the phone as there are many organisations out there that aim towards improving the world that your husband can sponsor with the money. I think he needs a deliverance coz i think he is possesed by an evil spirit which persuaded him into buying the phone. Come to this church C.A.C springfield garden NY. I think they might schedule a time for his deliverance. Hope it was helpful.

  27. I;ve bought a second hand Mobiado Professional (100$ ) … Very nice phone. it deserves to be in this top.

  28. The phones are not too goood! They were just expensive! HAHA!!
