6) Teardown shows Amazon Fire Phone costs $205 to build

“…Last week, iFixit did the first teardown of the Amazon Fire Phone, and found that it is decidedly not a device meant for DIY repairs. Now, the build cost has been calculated.
The build cost has been calculated by IHS, but the official report isn't due to be published until tomorrow (Tuesday July 29th). But, Re/code has gotten a peek at the report and is saying that the Fire Phone costs just $205 to build. For comparison, the Samsung Galaxy S5 reportedly cost $256 to build, and the iPhone 5s clocked in at $199. Where Amazon seemed to save quite a bit was on the display module (often the most expensive component), which cost just $27 for the Fire Phone's 720p display. Most of the added cost on the Galaxy S5 came from the display, which cost $63 for its 1080p display.
Overall though, IHS is calling Amazon’s device “a pretty standard mid-range phone from a hardware perspective” where the only “unique thing” is in the four dynamic perspective cameras.”
