The price? Nonsense.
The specs and speed? Well, it runs iOS7 as it does ... but maybe the future 7.1 update will speed up things a bit, even on the iPhone 4.
who cares abt apple
most indians are loyal nokia fans and nokia is launching its latest n' greatest products in India with a reasonable price
Duel, 21 Jan 2014Well you dont sell tens of million iphones every q, apple does :) maybe they know these things... moreThat's not applicable if you are talking about India
In the world the highest price tag for an iPhone is in India!
Now they are selling a 800mhz 512mb ram phone with an overpriced tag again
And again some dumb kids will fall for that shiny logo and buy it even when they know that ios7 does not give good performance, iOS 6 did!
I have nothing against Apple selling their phones in India. But when Apple thinks the Indians are rich peoples who goes around with alot of cash, then i think they have failed before they even have started to sell the iPhone 4 there.
Indians are not rich peoples and India it self are not a rich country.
So my question is, why are you Apple trying to rip off peoples in India hardcore when you know they don't have alot of money?
Not only that, but a snail is faster than running iOS 7 on an iPhone 4. Witch means that everyone who installs iOS 7 on their iPhone 4's, will feel even more ripped off.
And why do you Apple thinks that cheap low-end smartphones are the ones who gets sold ALOT of in India?
The fact is that money is the only thing Apple cares about.
Aplle pls hire some good marketing executives. dont make fun of yourself
Apple should not cheat Indian people' hard earned money with 3 year old out dated hardware!
If Apple sincere enough, they should rename it as iPhone Mini but equipped with the latest A7 chip & 1G RAM!
Does Apple think INDIAN are foolish to buy the 3year old phone for such price. Grow up Apple u dont knw indian yet .
Y would someone buy this when you can get a nexus 4 or xperia zr after adding 2k-3k more. Apple is going down big time
The iPhone is doomed, and it always has been....Don't worry Apple we will bury u in India. You chose the right place..RIP..
Apple is all about sucking money and giving sh*t..
Why will a person shed 23,000 and buy a single core Shitty phone just for ios7..
Anonymous, 21 Jan 2014Those who defending this old phone, keep in mind that 16GB is not enough storage for an iDevic... moreI bought 16gb iPhone 5S. You clearly forgetting that many people own tablets. First i bought 32gb iPhone then i bought my first iPad with 32gb. Now when i bought my iPhone 5S i bought 16gb model because i already have 32gb iPad. Most of stuff which i used with phone before now i use with tablet so no need for that big storage in phone anymore.
If you dont play games and watch movies even 8gb today is enough. No need to add hundreds of songs anymore because we had free spotify, cloud services etc.
Duel, 21 Jan 2014I meant because it has newest IOS7 you can run every app from appstore. So its not like buying... moremy dear friend, just go through most of the tech forums and you will know what happens if you load ios7 in iphone 4 . it makes the phone so sluggish that you can only use it as a paper weight. plus am surprised with the price. Apple thinks us as a stupid country filled with morons and India is a dumping ground for those excess unsold iphone4 which no country will take in - apple sees us as fools with money eh? is that what the western world think of us???
i have an ipad , and yes ios is brilliant but this move is a sick one by the company and smells of painting indians in a poor light.
Apple is fooling us poor indians. This phone will be useless in 3 months, lag horribly. Still some fools here will think apple as reliable, lavish phone and end up buying this crap. Still a word of wisdom for potential buyers buy a nexus 4 at same price you get much faster cpu with 3 extra krait cores, miles ahead gpu, bigger, better screen, double storage, android 4.4(trust me android is lot better than ios).
lets oath about it... if you buy this shit than you are not indian...they are not memorize that ZERO is given by indians but when they get it then they realize...
Would they dare pull this stunt on China, US, or Euro? This is an insult to Indian people's intelligence.
They've likely got leftover iPhone 4's that they're desperate to unload. So, let's dump them in India at a fraction of an iPhone 5s' cost. Who knows, some gullible Indians, unaware of the specs and blinded by the "eaten apple" logo, might just go for it, believing they're getting an otherwise expensive iPhone on the cheap. Bad for those Indian consumers, who, no doubt, will be screwed, but who cares, as long as we've got rid of those damn things and made good money in the process.
