  1. iPhone xs is around 1400$ in India , where as Oneplus phone is around 500$ which itself is facing competition from Poco which is around 300$ . So, go figure Apple .

  2. Did apple even have an iPhone dream for India? I really don’t think so.
    Eg – iPhone XS Max 512GB costs $2010 here. Even iPhone XR costs more than the Note9. And XR’s 256GB variant is $1180 or something.

  3. The Samsung flagships do comparatively much better in india than the equivalent apple flagships and the reason is pricing.

    Understand the following :

    Prices in usa :
    Iphone x – 999$
    Note 9 – 999$

    Prices in India –
    iPhone x (64gb) – 1500$
    Note 9 – 999$

    Imagine if apple had launched iphone x 64gb for 1.5k$? It wouldn’t sell even in u.s

    The thing with prices is that, The indian government has a law where permission for local factories and plants is granted only if the company buys 30-40% of resources for the same product or its equivalent in any other form from india. Idea is to bring investments in india. While other companies are able to do that, apple did not see it fit and now nobody buys an iPhone here.

    If the iPhone was selling at the same price as note 9, it would have a fighting chance because note and s series are quite popular in india.

    To give u an idea of how bad the company’s situation in india is : the iPhone xr is costlier than note 9 by some margin.

  4. And it’s only because the Pixel’s are stupid expensive. Seen more Pixel advertisement than OnePlus in my last three visits

    India is a very frugal country.

    1. One change that might have had an impact is the removal of the headphone adapter going forward. That shit is like 700 Rs in India, that’s like a week’s worth of fare for traveling to work.
    2. Indians will factor in the total cost of ownership. That includes possible future repair and need to buy accessories like headphones. iPhones aint cheap to repair in india and service centers are far and always lacking in parts. Lost the stock lightning headphones? tough luck, shell out for it again.
    3. Lastly them not having a corning glass. Most people know their phone may fall or be knocked over and often in kids hand as they wanna play a game. People who do buy it are saving before they buy to buy the right screen protector and case before comitting to buy.

  5. IPhone XR is like $1000 in Canada and I know plenty of people who aren’t upgrading to a newer iPhone. How are people in India, a country that earns significantly less money ever going to buy stupidly overpriced iPhones. Apple has so much competition, so many brands making better phones at half the price, they are completely out of touch with reality.

  6. Apple is crushing Apple’s dream in India. I am not going to buy a gimped « economy class » iphone for ₹80,400 when top end Galaxy S9+ is available for ₹61,900.

  7. I honestly cant believe that companies like apple and Netflix expect to succeed in india with their outrageous pricing asking first world prices in 3rd world countries is really stupid Netflix for example their cheapest plan cost $7 a month but their competitors cost 14$ for the entire year.

  8. Iphones are $1400 there, nobody would be paying that much in the US either or near $2000 in Australia. We’re talking about beyond laptop prices. Indians are realistic about how much they should pay for phones.

    People are wising up to the fact that they’d rather buy direct from manufacturers for the better configuration and lower prices, than from those that source nearly all their parts from other companies and sell high to make up for the higher parts costs.

  9. The main reason why OnePlus gets such a stellar response in India is.

    OnePlus ticks all the boxes for the young customer base they have.

    1) Close to stock Android.

    2) No bloatware.

    3) High specs( Minus Notches).

    4) Faster performance compared to stock Android.

    5) Affordable pricing.

    What’s not to enjoy then?

  10. One Plus is killing it. I was a Nexus/ pixel user all my life until the 6T. One plus offers nearly everything the major flagships do for half the price. The only real reason to spend is the camera upgrade on flagships. And for my few memory and Instagram snaps 6T camera is plenty good enough

  11. May be its time for Apple to adjust their strategies like creating another product line for developing markets or share their services / chips / ecosystems with partners?

  12. I have nothing against Apple as they do make amazing phones and it is extremely reliable to use too. Their problem is price and constant increase in price without any increased value for the money consumers spend.
    I wouldn’t mind spending 1000+ on phone but my question is why? What do I get in return? What can I do on better on iPhone which I can’t do on OnePlus?
    Yes, iPhone has better camera for sure but is it with $400 more? So, I ended up buying OnePlus 6 and never looked back.

  13. >iPhone sales in India fell nearly 50% year-on-year last year. The company sold just 1.7 million smartphones in 2018 as compared to 3.2 million in 2017, according to data from Hong Kong-based Counterpoint Research.

  14. I’ve had mine since March 2017 after years of apple. Best phone decision I’ve made. This thing is miles better. No surprise it’s doing well as a cheaper (and better) alternative to iPhones.

  15. I really like my iPhone, but yeah – I don’t see a point of buying it for such a price when Xiaomi is making really good phones for cheap price.

  16. People in India aren’t invested in the « apple ecosystem » so there is zero reason to overpay for a phone. If anything Apple would have to lower their prices which would defeat the wealth status symbol. Apple can’t win at this point
