You probably don’t need a Dior smartphone

The most telling thing about the new Dior smartphone is the complete lack of technical details. While nerds obsess about Android updates and Apple IOS comparisons, Dior hasn’t even bothered to confirm the operating system in their official press release. Which is kind of understandable – the people buying this phone couldn’t tell the difference between Android and Apple IOS if their life depended on it. Also, they have much more money than you.

Dior’s latest entry into the smartphone market will set you back five thousand clams. Or about the price of 10 iPhones. We’re going to have to assume the price tag has something to do with the phone’s “99 pieces assembled by hand in a French workshop [using] the finest and most precious materials". Specifically, your new bit of tech is crafted from “sapphire crystal, steel, gold, diamond and mother-of-pearl".

We’re not sure how all those diamonds affect the reception and weight, but if that’s the sort of boring problems you concern yourself with then you don’t deserve a $5000 phone. Besides, who cares what operating system it runs or if you can Facebook when the design is “reminiscent of the Napoleon III chairs on which Monsieur Dior’s clients sat during his first show in 1947".

Or to put it another way, this smartphone was crafted my unicorns and elves in a secret French mountain fortress made out of diamonds – your argument is invalid.
