Apple announced their iconic new iPhone 6S last month and it’s yet to be released in India. As usual, it takes almost a month for the products to be released in India. The iPhone 6S starts in USA for $649. Which, if you convert, will be around Rs. 42,000 /-. But the iPhone 6S starts in India at 62,000 Rs. Comparatively, the iPhone 6 was released in India for 56,000 Rs./-. So, the price has gone up 6,000 Rs. /-.
This happens only in India. Apple started the trend, and now it is being followed by all other OEMs. The Nexus phones for example were announced in US for $379 and $499. But in India they are announced for 32,000 Rs. /- and 40,000 Rs. /- respectively. As reported by CNET, the 16GB iPhone 6S is priced in India at $955 (~62,000 Rs. /-) and it goes all way up to $1415 (~92,000 Rs. /-).
There is no doubt that the iPhone 6S is one of the best phones you can buy right now. But paying a whopping 62,000 Rs. for the 16GB iPhone 6S isn’t worth it. There are tons of flagship options available for well below 50,000 Rs./-(Samsung Galaxy Note 5, Nexus 6P and LG G4). And even some less than 30K phones (Moto X Style and Nexus 5X)are also worth considering. You can read the detail article in Cnet here.
