Samsung surely fooling Indian customers, look at the huge price gap between US and INDIA, in US its around 750$ unlocked version in India its 1100$, i mean serious wth?
Not gonna buy it, still waiting for some good alternative for S8+ :'(
TechLover1, 08 Jul 2017Well, we were talking just regarding Samsung (S8+ 6GB/128GB version in particular). But then i... moreJust wait until you see the final price-tag of the 256GB iPhone 8 Anniversary Edition lol
AnonD-287672, 08 Jul 2017There's no S8 mini. Samsung themselves clarifiedThey're actually making one, GSMA even reported on it recently.
I'm not buying this !
Instead, I'll have two number 9s, a number 9 large, a number 6 with extra dip, a number 7, two number 45s, one with cheese, and a large soda.
nik.007, 08 Jul 2017That's what we need to understand, they know that Apple's been doing this for years and they a... moreYes 100%.. Definitely if the next iphone is made available for 500$-600$ (obviously a dream) in India it will sell more than these any other phones.. Apple has the brand name.. I've seen people buying iPhone 6 now more than iphone 7, though iPhone 8 is on the way, 6 is available for around 26000INR (around 350-425$). Hope you got an idea of Indian Smartphone Market.
Don't know for how long they will use these 600$+, 1000$+ phones. Both hardware and software is evolving much faster. If iPhone 6 to get next 2major iOS release, without jail breaking, definitely I'll buy the one.
wow, this seems still way too expensive. If they do these price cuts every months, they will come down to a reasonable price in a year

But then i... moreThat's what we need to understand, they know that Apple's been doing this for years and they are successful still, in a country like India people gonna buy something which is expensive, apparently it increases their status in the society.
If the next iPhone is sold for say 250$, you think it's numbers will increase?
AnonD-287672, 08 Jul 2017There's no S8 mini. Samsung themselves clarified We shall see. You claim Samsung officially has denied the existence of an S8 mini. Have you credible proof? It very well may be that as opposed to a S8 mini, that, a S9 mini will materialized next year...
US citizens think this model is expensive. I expected it to cost more in the UK. However, I did not know it'd be costly in India.
imRGZ, 08 Jul 2017Unfortunately here in India there is no such thing as carrier subsidized phones. Either opt fo... moreCareer subsidiary has its own set of problem. You are stuck with plans by companies for your term. You will have no freedom. In India unlock option is far better and remains much more personal. No cost EMI is a great option by Bajaj. Or sometimes interest is credited back to you through offers on credit card. I will agree android phone manufacturers gives huge discounts on USA and European markets and provide much better exchange value in case you want to upgrade. Sometimes they give you 200$ flat discount for an exchange of any working phone. You will never found such discounts in India.
Luxor, 08 Jul 2017This is the model with 128gb storage. The base model with 64gb storage of S8+ is as low as $69... moreAnd the base model that you're talking about with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage is almost 980 here. And as someone else here said, no carrier discounts here.
