How Green is the iPhone

Geekaphone just finished our green study of the iPhone and wrapped it all up in a tasty infographic.

Apple pulls in close to 50% of total global cellphone profits by selling only 4% of all cellphones, with that kind of profit and over 100 million iPhones sold Apple is a legitimate gorilla. So just how green is the gorilla’s smartphone?

Feel free to insert the full infographic on your blog, just credit us back using the code below the infographic.  Enjoy!

    Hey, this is awesome! Do you have a list of sources for the information that help support this?

    This shows how a seemingly innocent product leaves a trail of bad stats behind it. I didn’t realize what a Bad Apple it was!

      I think we are being a little unfair here. This is only analizing the iPhone, we don’t really know what the status is on other phones… This graphic alone looks not good but it would be unfair to judge out of perspective

    This is a great idea, but the infographic is not very informative. Are 45 kg of CO2 a lot? What would that be for competitor phones, or older dumb phones? What does 18% less emissions and 22% more emissions mean? Are those comparing the same numbers? What is the phone on the right–it doesn’t look like an iPhone 3G. The facts mix some cellphone data and some iphone data, which is a bit confusing.

      ” What does 18% less emissions and 22% more emissions mean? ” Me also feel confused about this.

      • QM December 6, 2011 at 10:33 pm #

        According to the fisrt two sources provided by the Editor, total greenhouse gas emissions for iPhone 4 is 45 kg while iPhone 3G 55 kg. This may be the source data of the emission comparison. @WB
