Nice things don't always have to cost much money, but they usually do. The iPhone 7 is no exception – it's an expensive handset, but one you enjoy having. And if the price you paid for it gets put in perspective against what people in some other countries are paying, you might enjoy it an extra bit more!Deutsche Bank pinpointed Turkey as the place where you'll have to plunk down the equivalent of $1210 US dollars to buy a 128GB iPhone 7.
