Geek in making
Mini 3 got slimmer, so decrease in size resulted in battery life some how not great and with last year specs they added touchID and asking to pay 29k. Seriously

Re: How is HTC still surviving?? Who is buying their products?? Illuminati??

Why did people buy iphone? Why do they keep on buying it? What did iphone 5s had that a 20k android phone didn't? Why did people buy a low res, small screen, low camera phone when they can get a 1080p phone with 5" IPS and 13MP OIS camera for much much less?

Apple proved there is money in the high end segment, sell a small number of phones(comparing iphone sells with total number of android sells) and make a large profit on every unit, ka ching...

I dont get it... you buying a phone for gaming, photos or for communication?
imho, gaming and photos on a mobile are kinda dumb. more like a timepass.

but hey, 99% of cellphone users are idiots. what do you expect?

^then why do you need a smartphone? Even a feature phone now has all the communication applications.

And of course it is time pass, does not mean you shouldn't take it seriously

Yep, if asking personally, I use my iPhone for gaming, apps, ebooks and podcasts (actually just one podcast, about iOS gaming, the TouchArcade one), not interested in smartphones at all otherwise. Was given an iPod touch and told to check it out and install any apps when it was released - as a part of my work. Thought it was only a toy back then. After that was gifted an iPod, and only after using it for a while (used it only for games) decided to go for an iPhone. In fact, still use a dedicated mp3 player for music, and yes, a camera for photography. Although there is an adage that the best camera is the one available when you need it. More than happy to continue using candy bar phones actually, even now...

Re: Difference between buying iPhone through (Online, Retail Store OR Apple authorized store)

I am from Mumbai and have been planning to go for iPhone 5s, but the thing is I am getting cheaper at Amazon.in, Flipkart and some other Retail stores where I've inquired.

However at Apple authorized stores in Mumbai they are selling at much more price.

Difference in price :

Amazon.in - 37,500 Rs, Flipkart.com - 37,500 Rs, Retail stores - 38,000 Rs

Apple authorized stores - 43,500 Rs

When I asked the folks from Authorized sellers that - why they are selling at this price, they told me that they provide genuine bill generated from Apple, Data Transfer and some other stuffs.

Any guidance would be appreciated.

Buy from WS Retail and/or Amazon fulfilled. You'll get genuine product. Shopkeepers just want their cut, that's why the high price.

PS: Nexus 6, LG G3, Moto X (2014), hell even Oneplus One>>>>>>>>>>>>> iPhone.

Now apple total valuation is more than both google and MS together.

It's hard kinda to believe it.
The only thing Apple is good at is to "Sue" other companies.

Microsoft = US$ 172.38 billion
Google = US$ 110.92 billion
Total of two = ES$ 283.3 billion
