In India, iPhone prices aren't at their usual sky high levels anymore. Most iPhones are currently available at a discount of around Rs. 10,000 over their previous levels. Phone experts Jamshed Avari, Rishi Alwani, and Aditya Shenoy join host Pranay Parab to discuss why this is happening and whether people should buy an iPhone in India right now.
We start by talking about the big discounts on iPhone SE and why the price is so low at the moment. We talk about the iPhone 5s and iPhone 6 as well, and why buying iPhone SE could perhaps be a better idea. Jamshed and Rishi explain why the prices are fluctuating and comment on this apparent revision in pricing strategy by Apple.
Then we talk about the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus price drops. Both smartphones are now available online at well below their MRP. Rishi talks about several of his friends who didn't buy iPhone 7 at launch and how this pricing could make them change their minds.
Aditya then mentions the prices of competing Android smartphones and how their prices are also quite low right now. He shares his recommendations for those who would rather not switch to iPhone. We also talk about some upcoming Android phones that might actually be better alternatives.
