Two years ago, the newly-unveiled iPhone 7 represented the pinnacle of Apple’s smartphone design.

Two years later, it’s still a gorgeous and incredible smartphone – and thankfully, it’s more affordable than ever. In fact, the iPhone 7 probably gives you the most bang for your buck among any of the iPhones you can buy right now.

In the US, the most basic iPhone 7 with 32 GB of storage starts at $US549 before taxes and other fees. That’s almost half the price of the iPhone X, and the iPhone 7 competes very well with that newer phone in terms of specs and features.

Outside the US, the price of the iPhone 7 is a slightly different story.

Notably, you’re paying about $US50 to $US60 more for the iPhone 7 if you live in Canada or Australia, about $US100 more if you live in Mexico, and $US200 more if you live in the United Kingdom or other European countries like Spain, France, Belgium, and the Netherlands. But the iPhone 7 is most expensive in Brazil, where it costs about $US350 more than it does in the US. Brazil has long been the most expensive place in the world to buy an iPhone – mainly because the country applies a high flat import tax on most manufactured retail goods.
