Golden iPhone for Diwali Danteras 2013

So as I worked out in my earlier post and, as expected, Apple didn't do any particular favour to Indian market, making it clear that it wants to remain as a pure premium offering. 

iPhone 5s is being priced at ₹ 53,500 for the 16GB model, ₹62,500 for 32GB and ₹71,500 for 64GB. iPhone 5c is up for ₹41,900 for 16GB model and Rs. 53,500 for the 32GB model.

The champagne gold will certainly set the Diwali market on fire given our love for gold. It's 'the gift' for this season.

While 5s 64GB sounds way too expensive, the 16gb is priced just a little ahead of Samsung flagship Note3 and Sony z1 and zUltra. Well a hardware comparison on pure numbers puts the Android phones way ahead but that really won't do justice as real life performance is way different. 

It will be interesting to see how 5c sales turns out as it's priced right in the middle of all flagship phones!. We after all want maximum hardware for each ₹ and don't put enough thought on finesse of use.
