Riding around in a Dawn Black Badge is cool, but you need some accompanying style to go with it. Where many people go wrong is with their choice of accessories, particularly when it comes to a smartphone device. After all, a modern-day mobile isn’t just a communication tool but also a fashion accessory. 

Some people might change a smartphone case every month or spruce up their phone with the addition of some sparkling diamonds, while others spend big bucks on purchasing uniquely designed smartphones. Many of these types of phones can cost millions and are put together by bespoke designers who cater to this specific market. 

Of course, when it comes to smartphones, you’ll want them to be able to perform aligned with their raison d’être – download and use apps. You might use your smartphone to play the latest games on an online casino app, using the phone’s streaming capabilities to play games with live dealers. Or you might use it for work, using email, notes, instant messaging and so on. In that respect, if the phone is designed to be a tool for work and entertainment, who cares what it looks like? The answer is that many do. 

Smartphone designers in this space produce high-quality mobiles for the rich and famous in particular, but given the price of some of the most expensive smartphones on the planet cost, only a small number of people can actually afford such an extravagant phone. Let’s take a look at some of them below. 

Goldvish Le Million – $1.3 million

The Goldvish Le Million costs a cool $1.3 million and is the former holder of the Guinness World Record for being the most expensive smartphone in the world. These days, the offering in this space has kicked even further on, but the Goldvish Le Million still offers a luxurious design of the highest order. For example, the phone’s body is made out of 18-karat white gold, with the addition of 120 carats of diamonds adding even more sparkle to the overall design. 

iPhone 3G King’s Button – $2.5 million

Although this particular iPhone isn’t necessarily different to other devices of the same model in terms of power and sophistication, its slick design takes it into another stratosphere. While regular iPhone 3G’s can host popular apps like Spotify and Audible, this particular device also comes fitted with a ‘King’s Button’ – which essentially replaces the home button – that is made from 6.6-carat diamond. The all-round design incorporates an 18-karat mixture of yellow, white and rose gold, too.

iPhone 4 Diamond Rose Edition – $8 million

Have you got a spare $8 million in the bank? If so, then you can purchase this rather beautiful iPhone 4 Diamond Rose Edition. Made by renowned designer Stuart Hughes, this particular smartphone is made of rose gold and comes with 500 diamonds that contribute to its 100 carats. Perhaps its best feature, though, is the 53 diamonds that help make up the Apple logo on the phone. This particular designer device even comes with a granite presentation box, too. 

iPhone 4S Elite Gold – $9.4 million

Another Stuart Hughes design, the iPhone 4S Elite Gold costs a staggering $9.4 million. Although the price is steep compared to the array of regular smartphones on the market, the quality of the design is evident. After all, for $9.4 million, you expect the very best, right? Well, when assessing the iPhone 4S Elite Gold, you certainly get it. Featuring 500 diamonds around the edge, 53 diamonds on the logo, an 8.6-carat diamond forming the home button, and a spare 7.6-carat diamond home button also, it’s easily one of the most stylish smartphones ever made.
