Flipkart Big Billion Days sale has begun its sale on smartphones and other electronic products. While there are plenty discounts and offers on Android smartphones from Samsung, Xiaomi, Motorola, and others, there is a much bigger reason for Apple iPhone lovers. The e-commerce giant has come up with big deals on iPhone 7, iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, and iPhone SE. But the best offer is on the iPhone of 2016, the iPhone 7. It is true that the iPhone 6 is priced a little over Rs 20,000 and the iPhone SE is available much lower than that. But why is the iPhone 7 deal better?
In order to consider iPhone 7 a good deal, you either have to be a fan of Apple devices or are bored with the Android operating system. If you wish to own an iPhone now, the best and the latest are the Apple iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus. However, the least price for these devices is Rs 64,000 for the iPhone 8 (64GB) variant, and the price goes upto Rs 1,02,000 for the iPhone X (256GB) model. The price of the premium device has been a much talked about point in the tech circles ever since its launch. A lot of reviewers have said that the 10th anniversary iPhone does not have enough new additions to be priced so high. Also, in India, the price is even higher. But iPhone 7 is priced at just Rs 38,999, for the 32 GB variant.
Talking about the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, Apple had pegged them as upgrades to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus which was launched in 2016. However, when compared, there is a huge gap between the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 when it comes to price. But does the price difference justify the features? Probably not. Indeed the iPhone 8 has Augmented Reality features, better cameras, and a better A11 processor. Yet, there is a gap of Rs 26,000 between the devices. In today’s world of ever-evolving technology, the cost gap is to large to invest in. So, it’s better to buy a cheap device and hope that the next iPhone brings with it even better features.
Moreover, Apple iPhone 7 is just a year old. Despite the new launches, its specifications are not really outdated. It has a beautiful retina display, all metal body, good cameras and more. Also, it will get the iOS 11 update and more software upgradations at least for a few years from now. When compared to the iPhones 6 or 6s, iPhone 7 is much more powerful due to its A10 processor.
Even for Android users, at this price range, you may find a lot of new smartphones. Yet, Apple always packs a punch. However, you may still consider smartphones like the OnePlus 5, 3T, or even the Samsung Galaxy S7 (which too, has seen a huge price drop).
