Aircel recently started selling Rs 19,999 iPhone 3GS at the price of Rs 9,999 , that is less by half the original price. The price tag sounds really cool, it is the cheapest price for an iPhone in the World and this could be a great opportunity for all those who dream about owing the World’s most famous smartphone . But, Is this really a good deal when several high features android phones are available ? Should you buy it or Should you not?
Why to Buy iPhone 3GS for Rs 9999
Though 3GS is not the latest phone from the Apple’s world , it has the latest iOS 6 version that runs runs faster on iPhone 3GS than iOS 5. iPhone 3GS users on iOS 6 will enjoy new features like updated Maps, Shared Photo Streams and Passbook. Also included is ability to decline incoming calls with text messages or a “remind me later” option, that will remind you to call back the person later. If you see the android phones in the same budget hardly any one is having latest Android OS , most of them are still using old Android 2.3 Ginger bird.
Why not to Buy iPhone 3GS
1. No Front Camera
iPhone 3GS does not have front facing camera, that means no FaceTime, no Skype, no video calling. What’s the use of having a smartphone that can’t make video calls?
2. .Slow Processor
This iPhone has a 800Mhz Cortex A8 processor under-clocked to 600Mhz, in the age of quad-core processors I dont think its good spend 10,000 on this phone.
3. Less Storage Space
This phone has just 256MB of RAM along with an 8GB Flash Drive storage, This means apps will run slow and you cant store much music, video or data .
4. The price is not exactly Rs 9,999
You can buy this phone for Rs 9,999 only when you pay advance rental for data plan , which is Rs 3000 and if you have WiFi then this data plan won’t be much useful
