This year we have learned that Denmark is the most expensive place in Europe for groceries, sending a letter, using public transport and paying fixed expenses such as rent, electricity and heating.

But a new analysis carried out by eCommerce platform Linio has revealed that when it comes to popular electronic gadgets such as smartphones, laptops, gaming systems and printers, prices in Denmark are relatively moderate.

Linio compared 72 countries based on the average prices of 14 different popular devices, both iOS and Windows-powered, and ranked them by the sum of the total tech price.

Cheap for external hard-drives
Denmark scored an overall ranking of 31.

It rated fourth cheapest for external harddrive 2TB and fairly expensively for a portable charger (61), a Samsung tablet (58) and a Windows laptop (50).

Denmark ranked 44th for an iPhone and 31st for an Android device.

The analysis revealed that the most expensive countries for electronics were Venezuela, Angola and Brazil due to high inflation and import restrictions, while the cheapest were countries from the Middle East.

The study looked at the costs at chain stores, smaller retailers and at least three reputable online outlets in each country.
