    It's cheaper to make your own phone then to buy it.

    Yeah, that's pretty messed up how they do that.

    you know they sell almost every single part of the phone online ( you just gotta know where), so essentially you can make your own iPhone 4 in the comfort of your own home =P

    that's how I built my own PSP a couple years ago

    But remember.. you also have to pay for the large scale production (Apple pay Foxconn not the foxconn workers.) You have to pay the designers, the developers of the OS. A lot more goes into the production of a product that just the actual parts, marketing as well...

    Yes of course. They quickly get that money back.

    Hmmm, that's really weird, I thought Apple was making their Apple A4 Processor? Not Samsung.
