Flipkart has come up with a Father’s Day special sale and it is offering the Apple iPhone 6 (16GB model) with a massive 40 percent off on the e-commerce website. Apple iPhone 6 can now be purchased at a price of Rs 21,999 on the portal. This discount is really big if we consider the original price tag of Rs 36,990. Also, buyers can get another Rs 15,000 off if you buy the smartphone under the exchange offer. This offer is valid from June 8 to June 10. But is the Apple iPhone 6 deal worth it, in spite of the drop in price? Notably, the Apple iPhone 6 was being sold at Rs 24,990 for quite a while on Flipkart, so actually, the discount is not as dramatic as it appears to be. That being said, one should remember that it would be a fair deal to get a 4.7-inch iPhone for just a little more than Rs 20,000. This offer may not be available on any other phone for a while. So, if you are still confused about whether you should buy this iPhone as a gift for your father, there are few things you should know.
When it comes to performance and features, the Apple iPhone 6 has no major issues. The phone has Apple’s A8 chip with the M8 Motion co-processor, 8-megapixel rear camera and a 1.2-megapixel selfie shooter and a 4.7-inch LCD IPS Retina Display. The total memory storage available on this phone is 16GB, which is not enough on an iPhone. But when it comes to software, Apple has said that the iPhone 6 will get support for iOS 11, which is the new OS that will launch in 2017, so that is one really good news.
However, before you decide to hit buy, you should know that an Apple iPhone 6 with 32GB storage space available at Rs 25,999 on Flipkart, which is just Rs 4000 more than the 16GB version. This version of the phone also comes with Flipkart Assured next to it, which means the quality check has been done by the company. Once again this phone comes with up to Rs 15,000 off on Exchange, so you can get some more off on the price, depending on the kind of phone you are trading in.
If you are bent on getting an iPhone for Rs 21,999, the iPhone SE is also retailing at Rs 21,999 on the website. This one comes with a smaller 4-inch display and might appeal to those who do not prefer big displays. Also, the iPhone SE comes with the new A9 processor and a higher 12MP camera. More importantly, there is 32GB onboard storage. Apple iPhone SE still comes with a 1.2MP front camera.
For those feeling more generous, the iPhone 6S is retailing at Rs 35,999 on the website, while the Apple iPhone 7 is still at a discounted price of Rs 45,999. Overall if you are planning to buy an iPhone this week, go through the options carefully. Extra storage is always better, even if you give up on the slightly bigger display.
