Should you buy Apple iPhone 6 (32 GB Variant) for Rs. 28,999 in 2017?
Apple iPhone 6 is worth it, but not for everyone. Now what’s interesting is the fact that Apple has priced the device at Rs. 28,999, albeit a 10 percent discount via Amazon India. The iPhone 6 (16 GB) was trading at 30 to 32K for the last couple of weeks.
At first glance, it may not be the best choice, to go with a dated iPhone 6 in 2017, as the market is now filled with a plethora of options and even you get an equally better for much less than the asking price of iPhone 6.
All these come with much better hardware, camera quality, and much more storage compared to iPhone 6. For most people, it is not a good deal.
Notably, the iPhone 6 is an option for those who are invested in iOS and want to upgrade from Apple iPhone 4S, iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s.
If you are already using an Apple smartphone and want to use an iOS device only then this is a good option. Though there is some more exchange offers available on Flipkart for trading your older iPhone, which can also be tried.
Though I would strongly recommend going with the Apple iPhone 6s if you are not looking for an upgrade to the latest iPhone 7. The iPhone 6s has many improvements compared to the iPhone 6 like – much better camera, faster processor, more Ram, new force touch display, new touch id. It will last more than 2-3 years with ease while the iPhone 6 will look more outdated in 1 year.
There are no issues in performance with iPhone 6 currently and it works well and can work for another year with ease. But a better option is to upgrade at least to iPhone 6s or get on to the Android side where there are plenty of options.
