Vertu is well known for its expensive phones and expensive they are indeed,all commanding big money so you will need deep pockets,let that be no mistake here.The last phone which was Vertu for Bentley only cost €12,500 but with this new range they begin at €8,900 and the top spec now cost €15,000 which is to be honest madness,but bespoke or custom phones like this are common these days either be it from the manufacturer themselves of companies offering to encrust your phone in diamonds of your choice….Vertu devices run on Android too so this makes it that bit easier a sell in my opinion..

First up is the Diamonds Black Alligator. Price €8,900

For people that are not aware with Vertu you get a whole lot more when you buy a device from them which is quite amazing but then again for the price of the devices its at least something your hard earned money to begin with,You get Concierge offers 24-hour worldwide assistance, recommendations and priority bookings.You also get a selection of accessories too which again are quite costly..

wyg

Would you buy one of these if you had the money ? For me i can’t say to be fair ,these are mostly devices for the rich and famous or for those who just like to splash the cash and have it as a fashion or status statement..
