iPhone X alternatives for a cheaper price

Son of Business tycoon Mukesh Ambani, Akash Ambani has launched the latest iPhones (iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus) in Jio Headquarters located in Navi Mumbai. The iPhone 8 (64GB) is priced at Rs 64,000 and iPhone 8 (256GB) is priced at Rs 77,000.

Not even a month has passed since the launch of iPhone 8 and iPhone Plus, and there is bad news for Apple. The iPhone 8 Plus with 64 GB retails for INR 73,000 and the one with the 256 GB storage is priced at INR 86,000, making it INR 3,000 less than the iPhone X.

I was glad to see most of the technology inside the iPhone X is also inside the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus.

Reliance Industries has announced that it will offer a special 70% buyback offer on the original purchase price of the new iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus customers and later iPhone X customers after one year usage, to those returning the device.

It also does not have support for HDR, which could be something fans will have to consider when they are trying to decide if they should wait for the iPhone X or not.

The best of all, the after sales would be done by Apple which is regarded as the best in India. However the full discount is available only on exchange with the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.

"Face ID doesn't replace your passcode, but provides easy access to iPhone X within thoughtful boundaries and time constraints", Apple writes.

To fast charge the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X, you'll need a USB-C to Lightning cable and a USB charger that features Power Delivery.

So far it looks like this swelling battery issue is limited to a few iPhone 8 Plus phones in Taiwan, and we don't know yet what caused the problem. For instance, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus display can reproduce colours better than predecessors.

The move will ensure those iPhone buyers stay as Jio customers paying monthly Rs 799 for next 12 months. Deals on the phone include a 70% buyback offer and an additional Rs 10,000 cashback.

Apple started building its own processors five years ago, and they really have a speed advantage because they control the hardware and the software. Instead, it'll give you a voucher which can be used to buy the next iPhone or anything else from Reliance Digital. It is possible that you don't like that Pixel phone you are using (although everyone loves the Pixel phones so chances are low that you don't like it). In addition to the above offer, a cashback amount of Rs. 10,000 is assured if the phone is purchased from a Citibank Credit Card, on the day of the launch itself.
