IDC’s research showed Samsung continues to lead the smartphone market in India with over 28.1 % market share, the rest of the top five players are all Chinese. At number two we have Xiaomi with 14.2 % market share, followed by Vivo with 10.5% market share. At fourth Lenovo Group with 9.5% market share and at fifth position Oppo with 9% market share.Wait where’s Apple’s iPhone?.
While Chinese brands are getting more than 50% of market Apple only made about 3% of the smartphones sold in the country.No doubt iPhone is a great Phone, But why jus 3%. Everybody knows it’s the price.
iPhone 7s Plus 256 GB price is somewhat around 75k while iPhone 7 128 GB are sold at the price between 61k to 65k. Instead of buying an iPhone, it was found that an average Indian could pay months of rent or fly across the country more than once.
So I went deeper and made a list of some interesting useful and unuseful things you can get at the price of an iPhone in India.It is just a comparative list of iPhone with common stuff.So iPhone lovers don’t get so furious about comparing iPhone with other things
iPhone vs Rent
iPhone vs Indian Rail
You can have 23 cross country journey (80 Days of traveling) between Dibrugarh in Assam, to Kanyakumari, Tamil Nadu in Vivek Express by Indian Rail. Just FYI It is the longest route on the Indian Railways network, in terms of distance and time, and is the 9th longest in the world.
iPhone vs Broadband
The average cost for High-Speed Unlimited Broadband is around 1k to 1.2k in most of the cities.At this price rate, you can pay 5 yrs of broadband bills at the price of an iPhone.
With the entry of Reliance Jio Fiber broadband service, you could have their broadband for 7 yrs ( 10Mbps/-Unlimited) plan at the price of an iPhone.

This purchase will definitely last longer than iPhone, Probably till the next iPhone launches.
Average Basic (Electricity, Heating, Water) bill for 2 BHK apartment costs around 2K. For that price,
3yrs of bills just PAID!
