shappy, 19 Oct 2015Buggy...??? ...iOS 9 ??? From which planet are you?Earth
See the import prices and compare it with selling prices. The commission is almost 40-50%
Why? Because Samsung Galaxy Note 5& S6 are the better choices - Their camera & sound was excellent
So 50000 already ullubanawoed by apple... seems they have number 2 money and don't give a damn on how they spend it.
Here in Holland the old 6 costs 7000 INR more than the S6. Also the 6S is even 16000 INR more expensive. I've converted from euro to rupees:) What does iPhones have to offer that they ask such high price? Nothing. Camera is worse on iPhone, smaller screen with parhetic low 750p resolution. Speed and battery life is comparable. Apple offers 16GB memory on their base model while Samsung gives 32 GB. So why pay more for less? Apple logo? So happy that I've switched from 6 to S6. I don't like Apple's policy to screw their own customers.
AnonD-230517, 19 Oct 2015We have Samsung galaxy s6 @ 33000rs!!better phone better camera!!samsung is forced to cut the price .. initial price of s6 was in the range of 52k i guess
anyway iPhones are way overpriced in india.
Smart people compare global costs. If a phone is available for 60k in most markets they wouldn't pay 82k just for availing warranty (6s 128GB). There are innumerable ways to avail iPhones from other countries now. Apple's pricing strategy in India this year is most miserable.
If apple wants to grow in India then they have to make phones in India
Else forget about market share
As import duties from China are increasing so even Chinese companies are making phones in India to stay competitive
[deleted post]India have 4th largest army and 4th super power, Indians are clever they don't give importance to brand they give importance to products.
We have Samsung galaxy s6 @ 33000rs!!better phone better camera!!
Are you sure it was the price that held them off ? Maybe they are waiting for Lumia 950, Continuum is the reason. :)
AnonD-266770, 19 Oct 2015This was pretty much expected. This iCrap is insanely overpriced. I mean shedding out INR 6200... more150k units for a population of nearly 1.3 billion shows that Apple is not at all serious about the Indian market, and they know exactly who the people are that can afford their devices.
Of course, anyone who purchased an iPhone 6 last year may not necessarily upgrade to the 6S.
So yes, no surprises here, but I also think Tim Cook isn't losing any sleep over it.
AnonD-356282, 19 Oct 2015People buy what THEY think is valuable. Why not stop spouting this rubbish about how Apple is ... moreThey do right in the US. Everywhere else it is just overpriced. India is the third largest mobile market and they are putting the highest price tag in India. Why? There is no 'right' in there.
