    Meh. I personally don't find such info all that interesting. The cost to produce is much more than just the cost of components. The components don't perform their own R&D, marketing, distribution, etc.

    They have a gross margin of a lot more than that.

    The under $200 price that people pay for these phones is a subsidized price. If you just walk into a store and want to buy the phone without a contract, it is closer to $600.
