    Don't forget that those are just the component costs. Traditional advertising/marketing costs can drive up the prices of the smartphones which are then passed onto the consumers who pay a premium for the brand name and recognition.

    Things are changing though with companies like Xiaomi using online advertising strategy to cut back on costs.

    marketing (as you said), design cost, distribution to stores... are not included in those prices.
