The smartphone market is now flooded with lots of flagship products like the HTC One X. The latest one joining is Samsung Galaxy S3. Both phones feature cutting edge technology and loaded with features. But, still there are people who prefer iPhone 4S over these new phones. In India, the Apple iPhone 4S is available for a street price of around 38,000 Rs for the 16 GB model which is quite high. Almost one year ago, I’ve written an article titled “10 reasons for not buying an iPhone 4”. Now, I’ve found 15 reasons for not buying an Apple iPhone 4S.
The iPhone 4S was released on October 2011 and now it is almost 9 months and there are many other flagship phones available. So, why should you pay a premium for an old device?
The iPhone 5 is just around the corner and will be available in some months. It is said to have a completely revised design and feature a larger screen. The rumors even suggest a different aspect ratio – 16:9 instead of 3:2. So, if you buy iPhone 4S now, you’ll have an outdated phone in just 2 – 3 months. Read the rest of this entry »
Samsung’s latest flagship phone is to be released on May 29th world wide and is expected to come in India in June first week. It seems there are lot of speculations about the price as it is the most powerful smartphone at the moment. It is also packed with features like 4.8″ 720P SuperAMOLED HD screen, 8MP camera with face recognition, Smart stay (eye tracking to keep the screen on), S-voice which is Samsung’s answer to iPhone’s Siri etc.
Yesterday, IBNLive reported that the price will be as high as 42,500 Rs (780 US $) and several blog sites continued spreading the news. However, if you read the news carefully, it is the expected price for the highest capacity model. Samsung has announced that the device will be available in 3 capacities (16 GB, 32 GB & 64 GB). But unlike iPhones or HTC One X (32GB), the Galaxy S III will have a micro SD slot and hence a 16 GB version is the most sensible choice. This means, the lowest capacity, that is the 16 GB version is to be priced around 32-35 K (assuming around 3K to 4K difference for the next higher version).

Apple officially announced that India will get the ‘new iPad’ from April 27th. But as always it once again failed to reach the masses in India. Despite the fact that the new iPad (or iPad 3 as people say it) has a great screen and excellent graphics it is not selling in India as much as it was expected to. I can think of some reasons.
Though Apple officially announced that it will be available from April 27th, this is not yet available in most cities across India. Reliance Digital store is distributing/selling the product and they have only very limited presence across the country. I’ve contacted so many dealers which were listed in Apple India’s website but they didn’t have any clue about the date when they will get stock. It was released on March 16th in US and other countries and it is almost two months after the release. Naturally the excitement dies after sometime and people won’t care about the “new” in “new iPad”.
