iPhone sold out in 30 minutes in South Korea.
point 1: it's 72,000 rupees in India (iphone 6s 64GB) .that is equivalent to $ 1010.
now tell me if apple will sell iphone 6s 64 Gb for $1010 in USA how many people would buy this phone.
point 2: most of the middle class family in the India having average salary of 30,000(it's even less then 30,000).now ,if you want to buy an iphone you have to save entire salary of two and a half month.then you would be able to buy an iphone.
now suppose if in USA your salary is $2000(most of people having more than $2000). and apple sell their iphone for $5000. who is going to buy this phone.?
Â“Almost all carriers surveyed indicated that iPhone 6s sales were down [year-over-year] compared to the iPhone 6,Â” the study adds.
Stop with the 13 million sales propaganda. It was 13 million *shipped*. The sell-through rate is far, far worse.
GSM, please get your facts straight.
The "record sales" were majorly *shipped* units to retailers and carriers. The 6s *BOMBED* in consumer sales.
Angry Mobile Nerd, 20 Oct 2015So it's not selling well because they don't want to pay that price or because not a lot of peo... moreAs we don't want to pay them
It's not that Indians don't have money we can afford any gadgets
So the so called foreign brands are rushing to India to sell their products
Never underestimate a common man in India
So it's not selling well because they don't want to pay that price or because not a lot of people there have that amount of money?
Well its a different ball game in India
though its one of the biggest markets, we have consumers looking more towards midrange smart phones unlike USA
so a phone like iPhone with such a high price will always unaffordable.
This is the reason where in manufacturers like Lenovo, Asus, Micormax, Mi come into picture :)
I agree that Indians look out for practicality but don''t say Samsung gets it right. Nope.
I would rather place my bets on Sony. Samsung makes android look like 'Ghajini'. Sony is more like 'James Bond'.
Apple need to sell a lot of units in order to pay the 820 million dollars lawsuit filed against them for stealing! That's supports the news that apple will probably use Intel chips in the future because they were caught for the second time that they use the A9 chip without patent from the inventor.. shame on you Apple! such a thief! haha LOL
ha ha ha ... APPLE can't fool INDIAN's as they do in US ;china etc. Because INDIAN's believes in practical performance that samsung provides . It will never be possible for APPLE to compete with SAMSUNG in INDIA.That's why SAMSUNG has 45% market share in INDIA for smartphones price above $500 . SAMSUNG give real and practical performance and when you use you can feel the power.
AS now i am having S6 EDGE+ and whenever i see or use this masterpiece this always put a smile on my face. Its a work of art. if you are a practical person and doesn't value art, don't buy it. I have the silver one and im loving it :) and whenever any Apple boy see it his AS* is on fire...
i am really happy that iphones sales are sluggish... it would deliver a message loud and clear to tim cook's deaf ears to not consider India as an afterthought... i mean how can iphones price be kept at a whooping $1000 plus in india... i mean,,i can get yamaha R15 V2.0 IN that amount !! :D
mob master, 19 Oct 2015But your C M also says Bihar is "Bimaru" state of india.we want help from Central go... morefirst and foremost,GUNDARAJ was there when that idiot LALU was our CM. nowadays,,there is no gundaraj... hell infact bihar has the second best growth rate among all the states in our country... by the way,, i am just ending this debate.. and now coming to the point,,iphones are way overpriced on india... they should keep the costs down because india is a price conscious market.. by d way,i have been using IOS AND ANDROID for quite some time now,,4 years to be more precise and i find android much better than ios...
Anonymous, 19 Oct 2015If they were clever, iphone wouldn't have been sold in this much quantity in IndiaWell there are always some isheeps
Honest Realist, 19 Oct 20151 billion people in india aren't even connected to the internet. They have a total pop of abou... moreFirst of all only 40% population of the world has access to internet, and it's more practical to buy a 300$ phone in india than buying iPhone just for show off and then paying emis for 2years at such outrageous prices and if you think people can't buy expensive phone in India just remember that Samsung biggest market for flagship phones .
Pricing is ridiculous for apple products and now even fans like me have ten thoughts before spending that kind of money. I can buy a MBP for this price! High time apple rethinks the pricing strategy and selling partners.
Yes, Not surprising! I have bought Note 5 Duos for Rs 43,000 (32 GB Ofcourse), Nexus 6P available for Rs 43,000 (64 GB), many other Galaxy models available less than Rs 50,000 - 53,000 range. Not sure if any one with sane mind keep increasing the price every year by Rs 10, 000-12, 000 and still expect mass buyers! For God sake even in US and other places this is almost same price point (except for plus category phones by $100).
