    How much does lumia phones all component cost for factory and how much air is in the price ?
    • How much the 41 MP camera sensor costs for example on its own ?

    All lumia phones costed around 400-800 euros when launched but does the all components cost like 10 euros to the factory ?

    Why does these phones cost now like 20-50 is it its true mfg. value ?

    hard to tell, just speculation
    i would guess that parts alone without assembly cost 120-150 euros for nokia (for large quantities, old cpu, no "flagship" specs)
    camera sensor could be 10-15 euros (if you buy million of those)
    raw materials could be those 10 euros
    they are cheap now because software isn't that good. no support, no apps, batteries have poor performance, camera is really good, but too slow

    total price also includes shipping cost, assembly cost, research and development, adverts, tax

    iPhone's tend to cost a couple hundred US dollars for parts and to build, but that's not covering the vast amount of other expenses that involves phone development as well as a healthy profit margin.
