At Vertu's factory in England, only one person assembles each phone, then buffs the titanium to a high sheen.
Vertu, which has been producing premium gadgets for over a decade, began selling the Ti, an Android-based phone with a base price of $9,600, earlier this spring. Lately, the company's Church Crookham, Hampshire, England manufacturing center has been hosting customers to show off this scene: a single craftsman carefully constructing a single phone. The story behind a pricey phone can be very valuable, too.
