The latest duo of iPhones sport a sleek design, waterproof body, and they don't explode like their biggest competitor. Little wonder then, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are among the best high-end handsets in the market. However, for most of us Indians, the biggest issue with the latest iPhone is its pricing. Take for instance the iPhone 7, which is relatively cheaper than the iPhone 7 Plus. Now the 32 GB base model of the iPhone 7 costs a whopping Rs 60,000. I agree that the latest iPhone is a performance beast with classy looks. However, 60k is a lot of money that can be spent on some other interesting stuff such as:
Instead of liking someone else's vacation photos from your iPhone 7, pack your bags and hit the scenic beaches of Thailand or Singapore's Sentosa Islands and Universal Studios theme park. Most of the deals found on Kesari and Thomas Cook include airfares and five to six night stay in fancy hotels. After this lavish holiday, you will still be left with enough money to buy Xiaomi's Redmi 3S Prime and upload 'curated' photographs on Facebook and Instagram.
Bike: Hero Glamour FI
The Hero Glamour FI comes with a liquid cooled 4 stroke single cylinder 124.8 cc engine. The bike can reach the max speed of 91 Kmph. Available in red and blue, the bike is quite eye-catching for its price. It is definitely not the top of the line two-wheeler, but surely beats playing Asphalt 8 on your iPhone 7.
LG 42" TV
The 42-inch TV comes with pixel dimensions of 1920x1080. Unlike the competing products, this TV comes with an IPS panel. This means you get rich colours and wide viewing angles. It comes with two speakers with 20 watts output. The TV also comes with Dolby Digital enhancement. Since TVs don't become obsolete as as quickly as cellphones, it is a much wiser purchase.
Sony Home Theatre System (Blu-ray)
If you already own a TV, it is time to upgrade your sound system. To manufactur fancy-looking slim panels, TV makers compromise on the speaker system. Hence, to complement the big screen, you should ideally buy a good home theatre system. If you are looking for something that costs as much as a latest iPhone, Sony's BDV-N9200W is a great option. The system comes with a 5.1 surround sound with high resolution audio. The tree way speaker boast of wireless rear speakers that save you from the hassle of wire management. For easy connectivity, it features bluetooth, NFC, and Miracast.
Xbox One And PS4
Rs 28,000 + Rs 28,000
After the recent price cuts, these gaming consoles are so well priced that you can buy two of these mean machines for the price of the iPhone 7. Sony's console comes with killer exclusives such as the Uncharted series, DriverClub, and Street Fighter. On the other hand, Microsoft's gaming machine comes with blockbusters such as Halo, Gears of War, Quantum Break, Forza to name a few. If you are finding it hard to choose between these two, you can buy them both for Rs 56,000 (I kid).
