The high end model iPhone that possesses 128 gigabytes of memory costs an enormous amount of $849. Having a contract with a service carrier helps reduce some of the price of the phone, but even with a two year contract with the service provider, the cost of an iPhone can reach upwards of $400. In addition to the price of phone, the owner may also purchase a case to protect the phone from damage for an increase of about ninety dollars to the total cost of the phone. Conversely, the Galaxy is significantly cheaper. The full retail value of a Galaxy with sixteen gigabytes of storage space reaches a cost of $570. With the purchase of a 128 gigabyte MicroSD card for an average of seventy dollars, the consumer gains more memory than the top-of-the-line iPhone and pays $200 less than the Apple product. The Galaxy sells for, at most, $200 with an agreement of a two year contract from a carrier.
