Most people believe that everything in Russia is much more expensive than in Europe. This statement also applies to the latest model iPhone. However, it is not. It all depends on various factors: taxes, customs, distance and others. Thus, we get that the same iPhone X for 64 gigabytes costs 1427 dollars, although the price in the USA is only 999 dollars.

At home, the phone is the cheapest. The highest price for the device is registered in Hungary – $ 1,475, although in Germany, which is a few hundred kilometers away, iPhone X is $ 100 cheaper. Japan is closest to the US price tag at $ 1,023 and Canada at $ 1,082. It is to these countries that representatives of the gray market fly, buying devices in bulk and then making good money on their resale already in Russia.
However, there are some schemes in which it is much more profitable for a resident of our country to purchase a device abroad. The cost of a round trip by train, for example, to Switzerland or Germany, will be less than the difference in the cost of a telephone. Therefore, you can save a little by spending a little more time and buying an iPhone in these countries. A bonus will be the opportunity to appreciate local attractions.
