$4.5 million for an Apple phone

One expensive Valentines Day gift

London-based Goldgenie is lathering Apple smartphones in 24 karat gold and encrusting them with diamonds for Valentine’s Day gifts that are bespoke, expensive and ostentatious.

Apple’s ubiquitous iPhone 6 can be finished in 24K gold, rose gold or platinum, and then studded in hundreds of diamonds and exotic stones as part of its ‘diamond ecstasy’ collection.

Each phone under the collection will be individually tailored, and a name, message or symbol can be laser engraved.

Prices start at an alarming £10000 ($A19,891) and ramp up to £2.3 million (A$4.57 million).

Goldgenie claims its ‘loyal’ customers include celebrities Elton John, the Beckhams, Roman Abramovich and P. Diddy, as well as companies BlackBerry, Aston Martin and Rolls Royce.

The company spawned from BBC television show Dragons' Den in 2007.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
