Many. I have 163 apps in that space. They run very well, apps arent heavy, games are. Trust me I know, few months ago i used 2009 processor (iPhone 3GS) even that handled most of apps. Biggest problem with iPhone 4 is heavy games but i dont think that is much of problem for casual user.
patrix, 21 Jan 2014Inspite of it's Price.....the phone is actually gonna sell pretty well !
For a normal person ... moreIf owning an Apple device is a matter of prestige, Indians are better off spending more for an iPad Mini or less for an iPod Touch. This is a terrible value proposition.
That said, this will be a true test of how many fools with disposable incomes there are in the country.
Doesn't matter. India filled wannabe americans. They will buy this outdated phone.
Moto G is the best for that area and that makes me never want to buy another Apple product (seeing how money-hungry they are)
will their is two types of person who buy this expensive old iphone, one is a diehard fans of apple or two a dumb person..come on apple are u serious!!!
AnonD-1825, 21 Jan 2014I meant because it has newest IOS7 you can run every app from appstore. So its not like buying... moreRun every app? Yeah. But with 8GB how many apps will you fit on there?

And that's only for 2014. Keep the phone for 3 years and it'll be completely outdated for at least two of the years.
Give it up fanboy. This move by Apple is indefensible and offensive.
And this is coming from someone who owns AAPL stock.
Inspite of it's Price.....the phone is actually gonna sell pretty well !
For a normal person here, APPLE is like something out of the world & anything with APPLE branding is going to be awesome.
This phone ain't gonna sell good in cities for sure but in villages this is the cheapest Apple product & hardly a person would care about specifications. Owning an Apple device is a Prestige thing for many.
Anonymous, 21 Jan 2014They should have relaunched the 4s rather than 4. They didn't relaunch the 4S for a reason. They don't want to devalue their global sales of the 4S with a lower price in India.
Ergo, the India special. A specific attempt aimed at ripping off Indians while preserving the value of their global 4S sales. Indians should be offended by this.
Majority of Indian buy phones within the price range of Rs.8000 - 12000. And many of them have no clue what they are buying.
And those who buy phones over Rs.12000 they are a bit educated about phones so there's no way they will buy worthless Iphone 4.
I can't stop laughing whenever I think about every one of Apple's strategy fails miserably in India.
AnonD-1825, 21 Jan 2014Not surprised by this, iPhone 4 is still very capable phone and does very well almost everythi... more23k for this piece of crap is totally absurd not matter how you look at it..
Are you getting paid for saying this bull shit..
Tom-Helge, 21 Jan 2014I have nothing against Apple selling their phones in India. But when Apple thinks the Indians ... moreAnybody who actually buys the iPhone 4 in India for that price, is ignorant enough or brand-conscious enough that they deserve to get ripped off.
What's that phrase about a fool and his money?
APPLE is a fool..keeping its price overyly priced..moreover Indians are smrater than any one else..they wont waste their money unless its worth..
Honestly, I don't get the point of such a move. Indians are brand oriented, but not to the same extent as the Chinese. As such, there aren't going to be too many lower income Indians who'd pick up an iPhone 4 over any of the other Rs. 22000 offerings.
Apple needs to accept that there are limits to its strategy in India.
AnonD-1825, 21 Jan 2014I bought 16gb iPhone 5S. You clearly forgetting that many people own tablets. First i bought 3... moreYou do not live in India and you have no clue about anything there do you?
And what does iPad have to do with it? A phone is supposed to be a standalone device.
