Not saying that iPhones are the best, because I've tested several Xiaomi phones like the K20 and Mi Note 10 and they're pretty good. But do talk with some common sense. Seems like you're from the lower-class economy.

Tested Mi Note 10 Pro. System and app performance is rather good. It may be ridden with ads, but several competitors also have this. It depends on your region, though. Camera quality is impressive in bright conditions. I don't see any evidence it's overhyped when the phone is pretty satisfying given the price (it's cheap in India and parts of SE Asia).
So who says Xiaomi is overhyped? Absolutely not true. They stepped the game up since the Mi 9 and embarassing iPhone copy with Mi 8 and A2.

Much superior phones out there for less money. S20 is also garbage, sorry about that.
Guess the only flagship which is absolutely not garbage is perhaps the Mi 10 Pro, then.
[deleted post]Yes!!! Fifth largest economy in gdp terms and 3rd largest economy in ppp terms.. go to your goole school and type above... india is ahead from UK and france.... do your homework baby..
[deleted post]India economy is mainly controlled by a few elite, thus income of average India workers probably need an entire annual income to own a iPhone, so is pointless to mentioned India economy is stronger, you should mentioned Ambani, Mittal, Hinduja family is stronger but not the rest of normal people.
Nobody buying this garbage.
Much superior phones out there for less money.
Anonymous, 03 Mar 2020Good news. I am happy to read it. No one should buy overpriced phones from any brand.Don't forget that they are the best phones too. You have to pay more to get a device you can rely on. It's not just money, IT'S THE QUALITY.
If Android Phones upgrade there version as Quick iPhone, many people don't go to iPhone.
Android Phones are very productive
SizN80, 03 Mar 2020That’s just the thing, people WILL buy them.Where is no cure from stupidity

Back to that guy, he said having expensive phone like iPhone in India is purely for the status of being able to have one, it shows of "you have money" and people with a huge ego love it.

No phone brand is perfect, let's make that clear in first place
For a moment think about the other side of the coin, about how badly the Indian governments throughout the history of this country have managed the taxation laws.
India is right up there as one of the highest taxed (consumer taxes) countries in the world. That coupled with zero actual consumer rights framework makes it one of the worst countries in the world to purchase electronics, like this phone, which are consider "ultra luxury goods" and not considered something as a mere communication device...like you know, what a phone is supposed to be?
The country's coffers leak like a sieve, they have been doing so since 1947 and they will continue into the future because of the endemic sickness in the form of institutionalized corruption in this country. Indians better get used to foot the government's tab to offset this leakage with more taxes heaped on their "luxury" purchases.
No need to buy that expensive fragile toys. Just buy any decent Xiaomi phone and enjoy. And don't talk about ads bla bla bla. You can disable them all.
Do a person who is ready to spend INR 40K+ on this toy, really care about 2K hike in price?
Now surely, if launched in India, price of iPhone 9/SE will start from INR 49,900 for the base model.
Who cares? US models are easily available in local market
Sonu4678, 03 Mar 2020Great news. I'm happy for the status hungry people. They can proudly flaunt their newly bought... morethose who can actually buy these phones wont care one bit about 1-2% price increase
Ka Froi, 03 Mar 2020The bitter ones are the ones who don't have purchasing power.Right. But in India...iPhone users are mostly that person as far as i know...
This also means upcoming Pixel 5(If it launches) will be more expensive than before.
