if a phone satisfies your needs, then there is no need to upgrade. Most people fall for marketing and pay large amounts for processing power that they really don't need. I usually go for a decent phone around $200. I believe anything beyond that is unnecessary. There are only two types of mobile phones that need huge processing power: one is Galaxy Note type devices and Microsoft devices with continuum to used as a PC. Other than than all the processing power you buy is a waste of money.
Tucking Fypo, 27 Jul 2016agreed. moreover most college and school kids are buying iphone 5s not even 6 or 6s.Or worst case, a used 4s with a broken back.
India has to be a bright spot with both the 16GB versions of 6s and 6s+ retailing at almost the same cost.
6S, 6S+ 16GB: 48-50K
6S, 6S+ 64GB: 59, 69K respectively.
What do they really want to sell is quite confusing!

Its screen and camera still outclasses some of today's phones.
Main reason for this seem to be that apple products are tough and work at least three times more than an android,which are piece of cheap plastic and die in 1.5 yrs average.

Iphone and BlackBerry.
There are lot of people who tend to buy above 2 as- second hand phones OR wait till launch of new series,so that prices drop.
Again both these devices are status symbol for neo rich class.
vino41, 27 Jul 2016Because in India they believe using iPhone will make you look like a rich man.agreed. moreover most college and school kids are buying iphone 5s not even 6 or 6s.
Because in India they believe using iPhone will make you look like a rich man.
Sebstin, 27 Jul 2016With $500+ price range apple wont be selling much iPhones in INDIA. Usual rich people only buy... moreNope. I can see ppl in IT are using iPhone mostly. (as far my understanding) through monthly EMI options 😀
of course. Starting price of iPhone is 55,000 so they gain profit only via India Ipad 32,000 ipod shuffle 5,000 iPod touch 23,000 where else they get this much profit
