Convertibles have never been an easy segment. However, lately they seem to be coming into their own thanks to the advancements of technology that provide them with more compact and efficient components as well as a lower price tag to match.

The most common mistakes that most affordable convertibles make is that they tend to have a standard hard drive versus an SSD storage unit. This is done to improve margins and cut costs.

The iPhone 7 is not a cheap phone by any standard. No matter how you look at it, buying an iPhone 7 is gonna cost you a pretty penny. However, today we've gone a little further and developed an interactive map in which we capture exactly how many minimum wages you would need to buy an iPhone 7 across the globe.

For this infographic we've taken the base $649 iPhone 7 with 32GBof storage and we've stacked that up against the worlds minimum wages across all 176 countries. You should bare in mind that the iPhone 7 doesn't sell at the same price all around the world. In fact, in most countries it's actually more expensive than what it costs in the United States.
