iPhone 6s Gets a Lukewarm Welcome in India

Browse This Page

We reported how the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus were getting phenomenal amounts of preorders in the USA, but the Apple wonder seems to have left its sparkle in America itself. India hasn’t taken to the iPhones too well as the opening weekend response has been tepid.

The devices managed to sell only 50,000 units out of a total of 165,000 (which is thrice the amount that was available last year).

iPhone 6s and 6s plus igyaan 6

The phones were launched in India on October 16th and it is highly likely that customers are either waiting for the price slash or it could also be because India is literally the most expensive place to buy the latest iPhones and that we would rather do without a hole in our pockets, that too during the festival season.

We can only watch what happens next and see how Apple manages to redeem itself. Till then, Samsung anyone?

  • Prajyot Singh

    Even if they manufacture in India, there won’t be a price difference from current prices

  • Sachin Balan

    these idiots keep that phone expensive than any other country.. they missed the train like nokia.. west’s attitude towards India Today

  • Ravi Darade

  • Joshwin Aranha

    though im seriously confused between Nexus 6P & OnePlus 2, i occasionally give a thought to buying an iPhone, but then my mind be like, “seriously dude? ” xD

  • Joshwin Aranha

    ^this comment lmao xD

  • Rizwan Azad

    Agree Vishal Maheshwari. Design looks a bit boring, no OIS and low resolution camera is a downer for me. And the price too.

  • MK Singh

    The stepmotherly treatment of apple with we Indians regarding prices of iphone 6S & 6S plus should not be tolerated & we should bycot the buying of these two phones because they are double priced for we Indians thinking that we are fools . The same phone is available in all over other countries in worldwide at just half of the INDIAN prices fix by the iPhone maker’s.

  • Vishal Maheshwari

    6p not worth it

  • Rishi Sgh

    Getting my 64 Gig straight out of US next month.. super excited.. as Diwali gift!

  • Debashish Pramanik

    Yes. But neither Gionee, Lenovo…nor MMX provides regular UI updates.
    Only ASUS does !!!

  • Mayur Agarwal

    According to a teardown report from research firm IHS, the components and manufacturing cost of a 16GB iPhone 6s cost Apple $250. These people are selling it 4 times that at around $1000 in india.

  • Amogh Ambekar

    apple store price tough… yaa it is available more cheaper at e commerce websites…

  • Sourav Goyal

    36999 on amazon

  • Sangeeth K Murali

    also gionee is a good brand

  • Rajan Singh

    At 1 lakh price…only a few takers :) :)

  • Yashwanth Sam

    @igyann @Bikram One can start another igyaan for the price of iphone6s.. By buying above rig!

  • Kalpesh Jain

    what else do u expect from the price it is launched at ..

  • Bikram Singh

    Iphone 6s = no downloading, no sharing, no multitasking, no dual sim, no spare parts. Buyers spent a higher price and then pretend that they are enjoying the experience.

  • Rizwan Azad

    Hardware wise Nexus 6P lacks in some department, like no OIS, lower resolution camera, and SD 810 might not be as good as S6’s Exynos processor. Nevertheless the software experience on 6P or any Nexus device is always top notch.

  • Sajjad Zulphekari

    Add 3k more and get yourself a nexus 6p

  • Saurabhbesoya

  • Anoop Prasad

    India is a common man’s country…they get better Android and Windows smartphones for half the price of iShits… U0001f60f

  • KishanKothari

    Ur grammar is dam good na so be in ur limit

  • Ayan Chakravorty

    Indians are mad about iPhone but are not fools. Why pay 20k extra as compared to other countries??

  • Debashish Pramanik

    People should go for Huawei Nexus 6P.
    Even, ASUS Zenfone 2 (4 GB RAM) model is comparatively better choice.

  • Debashish Pramanik

    If only Apple Inc. could’ve managed to do their homework, without any help or cheating by presenting some new innovative features like they did by showcasing Siri in 2010 with 4S.
    But, instead they enjoy copying and stealing data, technology from Android, Java, .Net Platforms…even from Researchers!

  • Rizwan Azad

    At around 37k Samsung Galaxy S6 is a way better choice. Gorgeous screen, beautiful design, excellent camera, a better and improved TouchWiz, 32 GB as the base model and an average battery life.

  • Rohit Kumar

    too costly better to buy nexus 5x

  • Yashwanth Sam

    One plus one + Nikon 3200 + mi smart band + manfrotto tripod + Lenovo flex 2 touch laptop = iPhone 6s.

  • Amogh Ambekar

    they charged 10k extra -_- it was meant to be at 52k since iPhone 6 is now available at 44k… rose gold is even more costly 72k just for the color bad move apple U0001f611
