But the iPhone is failing to capture it. This includes a paid sponsored promotion which had no part in the writing, editing, or production of the rest of the video.

just like most people realize the existence of god & start believing in god eventually at some point in their life similarly, "A LOT OF PPL AROUND THE WORLD HAVE SEEN, REALIZED & EXPERIENCED THE REAL INDIA" Things shown in this video are true but a lot of things were outdated as well & if anyone who wants to talk about INDIA, THAT PERSON CAN EITHER show such STEREOTYPICAL THINGS WHICH IS 40%(MAX TO MAX) OR THAT INDIVIDUAL CAN TALK ABOUT THE REMAINING 60% AS WELL

We don't buy products to make a company happy, we buy products that make us happy at the right price.

I'm from India & can afford an iPhone & understand it's brand worth which is useful to me "BUT" last year I bought an iPhone never to buy one again because Apple decreases it's performance through updates to force customers to buy new one, it is a betrayal. My phone started showing issues 1 week after the warranty expired & phone OS update. I've convinced atleast 17 sure to buy customer to not buy an iPhone & will continue to protect people from greedy apple!!

I'm so not happy with the videos portraying India. I don't know which era y'all live in but showing India as a dirty, overcrowded and underdeveloped nation is just reinforcing stereotypes which aren't true and please, we do have Wifi.

Indians want big screens big battery’s android and lots of gimmicky features. It’s hard to explain until you actually visit the place. They absolutely love gimmicky features like what those old Android phones have. Like weird gestures and all sorts. And price. Apple is too expensive. There are cheap tacky brands in India that people love there.

Honestly though, I live in Sydney and we have a huge number of Indian students studying here. There are two types: 1. The wide-eyed, recently arrived ones with Android phones, 2. And then there's the rest of them, all using iPhones 7, X or 11, after presumably working multiple jobs. They can be seen FaceTiming their family everywhere, all swinging their arm holding their phone out like a gun lol. I got smacked on my back a few times so I know.

These western Idiots still dont understand how apple is making them buy new phone in every 2 to 3 years by messing up the consumers phone. There are some idiots in India following the same trend, but most of us have common sense so Apple is never gonna make a revolution in Indian market ever. THIS POLYMATTER M*****RF****R is a fucking idiot!

Well the market is at fault. You can only saturate what is there to saturate. Apple have simply maxed out the iphone market. If growth is expected then those who expect it deserve a loss. Greed is a disgusting thing. They should be happy with what they have, the rest is just outright greed. Dear Apple shareholders, stop expecting more you greedy twats. Regards, someone smart enough to never touch apples shite.
Bob_Bobington (2 days ago)
I mean its pretty simple. Culture in India hasn't made it socially mandatory to pay quadruple the price for bad, cheaply made, delicate and out dated phones each year for no reason.
RANDOM DUDE what will u do knowing my name (2 days ago)
The real reason why apple fails is because apple costs 40 percent more than in us. It costs 1500 dollars for iPhone x (if converted). And costs like 700 follows to change back glass. Wtf, I mean really.

Iphone 11 pro 1200$ in usa... But in india 1700$ almost 30000rs extra... Reason:if u made a product in india.. It will cost less(low tax) and get some jobs to people.... If u not made a product in india then taxes are so high.. So it over priced.

@Varelity The Note 10+ comes with Samsung Dex. Its essentially a usable desktop and a phone in a small form factor and worth the cost. 12 GB RAM? Can do great photo and some light video editing.. gaming on the dex seems to be a good experience as well.

Nigerian Prince 219 (18 days ago)
Cause the iphone has the cost of an arm and leg and most indians probably can't afford the overpriced iphone when there is other similar phones for a much cheaper price
Rational Insider (18 days ago)
The thing in India is we care about the value for money we paid. If i phone X would have had 3 high megapixel cameras with optical lens ultra wide, 2 front camers, a 5k mah battery 6/8/12 gb ram and 256/512gb hard disk, the sales would have been 10 times more even with that same pricing. The configurations provided by Apple, whatsoever the quality may aren't high enough for competitors from China. Even Samsung realize this and is providing good configurations with competitive pricing even better then thejr flagship. Compare M series with S series. Brand value matters but at the same time when it comes to the tech world, if you wish to succeed in India, provide us the configurations. Joke of 2018 i phone x r had just one rear camera of 12 megapixel 😂😂 Shameless Apple wanting us buy that shitty budget mobile for a price wherein i can get triple the configurations from other manufacturers.
