Components of iPhone 4 cost are broken down and calculated, they all together cost around $188, with Apple’s new Retina Display as the most expensive part in iPhone 4.
Here’s part of the break down:
Gyroscope Chip : $2.60, Gyroscope is use to sense iPhone movie in 3D
A4 Processor: $10.75, Designed by Apple, Made by Samsung, the same processor used in iPad

Apple iPhone 4 is retailed at USD$199 with contract to AT&T, but the Manufacturing cost is around $188. It seems like a pretty good deal for consumers, we are almost paying for just the manufacturing cost, with AT&T or other carriers like Singtel (Singapore) covering the rest of the cost with our contracts.
