Curious Elephant : Any Ideas on the situation of iPhone in India? I think it reflects something interesting about the smartphone market. Would love to hear your thoughts!

Area of Interest : Indians use Brain while purchasing Smartphone... ✌✌✌

NB Plays : Apple Support sucks in India. They don't even know how to respect customers....

Heartbreak Gamer : i-phones are illogical. Western people buy the logo. Indians buys value for money phones

Ashish Daharwal : Instead of buying apple i will prefer to buy one+6t

Little Heart : Indians don't care about money (we have people driving Aston Martin even in rural areas for crying out loud) but Indians prefers going for bang-for-buck purchases and it reflects on every sector of the country. Now about the apple, they are not creative. They release same phone every year with increased height-width ratio. Their smart devices are not that smart and Macbook looks same as the day it was introduced to the world. Most Indian hates apple product not because it's high-priced, because the software they provide are purely machine depended and can't be tinkered with. If they expect people buy a $1300 phone it should not be just a phone which explores only Apple universe. An apple gadget works only with another apple gadget not anything else neither old nor new gen. I think people can understand what I mean.

Jaqen H'ghar : Android is better, so many Custom ROMs are made by Indians...iPhone users don't even know what a custom ROM is!😂

Aman Bhagat : now note 9 costs is $999 for 512gb and iphone xs max costs $1450 for 64gb in india .

Shashank Gupta : Even if the cost of iPhone is same as android I will still buy android

Arun Miraskar : India has 2nd largest population in world and we use brain before buying any smartphone 😎 Hit a like if you agree with me!

Yash Nagda : redmi note 5 pro which is very popular in india.. is 5 time less costly than iPhone XR and provides great value. for example - * 4000 mAh battery * 4 gb ram * snapdragon 636 *very good 1080p display *and awesome camera so why i will even consider buying iPhone when i can get better deal in 5 time less money. whyy?

Justin Y. : You can't scam the scammer.

Arshdeep Sharma : Apple is just like the tail bone in India. . . . USELESS

Aditya Dhakne : Indians are always courious about their hardearn money So they are not going to spend it to Isheep imean Apple

Soma Electricals : Indians loves 3 navigation keys. they don;t like apple single navigation key

Aaron Stone : I really don't get why apple exists in the west anyway, it is almost non existent in ASIA. so..

Anup Singh : iPhone is basically for bragging that you have an iPhone.. because of its high price... but in my opinion Apple it so so so overrated.... on the other side Samsung always offers a phone full of features..... But Apple.... always promoting their cameras.. (bcoz they don't have any other thing to offer) I live in New Delhi (India) and most of the apple customers are a business person or officials.. they just buy an iPhone to show other people that we are good in our business (I've asked them personally that... why iPhone & the answer was - iPhone is iPhone) Most of the owners of iPhone don't do anything other than... calling & receiving a call.... that's it ..... and they always - always & always complaint about iPhones battery life, I am a creative and productive person that's why I chose Galaxy Note8 - which is full of productive features..... which helps in so-so & so many professions to be smart and productive..... but Apple is like buying Nokia 3310 that's it............calling and receiving calls. Initially, Apple was something we all could look up to (new features....new this or new that) Apple actually has done so much amazing creative work but now in these days, Apple is trying to be in competition. Apple should thank Sir Steve Jobs for his work that the customers are still buying Apple.

Anoorodh Mankar : Apple is same popular in india like other countries but Indian want more in their budget which iphone always failed to provide hence indians buys other brand phone same price of the iphone. We use brain !

Prabhakar Jpm : It doesn't have dual SIM support 😂😂😎

N Ninja : Im indian and think i phone is not giving what we want in that much price samsung is best

David R. Reed : Very interesting report. I also believe that alternative Android devices will be on the rise in the US and elsewhere. Thus giving Apple much more competition than may now be expected. Like in India, this is going to be due to so many more smart-phone brands with great features at much more reasonable prices coming into the market GLOBALLY. While remaining a very good brand with a few fine products, Apple is simply faced with rapidly growing and diversifying consumer needs and wants that ARE being met by smart, aggressive competitors in an ever increasing international marketplace. Indeed, along with the rise of more smart-phone brands is the fast-paced growth of Google's Chromebooks for both businesses and retail consumers. Add to this, we now have the arrival of laptop/tablets - in all sizes and configurations - that are SIM-card or phone enabled coming into the mix. Plus a huge wave of AI-enabled technology and devices of all kinds is on the horizon. There are many more exciting and disruptive tech changes headed our way! Dave Reed

Happy plants : iPhones are low in features and high in cost, I can buy an android phone that has lots and lots of features far superior to iPhone and it will be cheap also.n

T&R Gaming with Gaurav : Iphones used to be unique and it is still unique in it's price tag😒. But most importantly Indians want features and Full control over there phones. Customer support of Apple in india is terrible.

Aditya Arora : The price never matters but the value and Indians know that

Rafat Shareef : Cause 90% of the population can't afford it

mr reality : Well, the Indian's like to buy which they like, they don't even care about court order's.

Karan Patil : apple can never dominate indian market the way it is. their low end phones are also too pricey, and feel inferior to andriod variant at that same exact price. only people who use iphones are the ones in artist/business industry. few college student end up buying iphones just for status symbol. Also not to mention lot of people prefer using cracked apps, with iphone they can't install these things i assume.

Ashok Yadav : The main thing what foreigners don't understand is........ When you getting gold Why go for tamba(silver)😂😂😂 And in this case.. Gold is more cheaper than silver..... So why anyone would go for silver just because it is a huge brand🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔 how foolish is that😂😂😂😂

i am pasta : We don't buy apple phone's bc they are useless. Android phones are much better and faster

osx holunman : Most people think iphone is so expensive, it come with non stop system ios optimize update, it must last longer than any android on earth, however people in india know that these update are designed to slow down your iphone and age the battery, that means you need to pay $2000 along with those non stop subsciption app paidment every year for rest of life, that mean people buy into timcoc ecosystem will be poor forever to make timcock rich

Vikram Singh : Iphone at best is serving as a second phone to even rich indians. One thing you missed altogether mate is the camera. Samsung, Oppo, and Vivo have amazing cameras. To indians camera matters a lot. Chineses and Koreans make better and cost effective cameras.

akhil sankar : Few things: .300% evil profit .shrewd and closed policies .0% contribution to technology / community .unappriciating economy .too much first world sheeps

jiang JR : I just recently bought my gf a Huawei Mate 20 Pro. Honestly, it made me feel such an idiot for still using an iPhone in 2018

Mello Series : Bro u are joining India to get more views and subscribers( positive way) and it's really a clever move. I love ur vids , keep ur video content focused on India then u can attract more views and u can climb up to millions. 💗Love from India.

Dheeraj Kumar : Iphone comes with a whole eco system with overpriced variant and terrible customer support Its just a phone at the end of the day dude i need anything accessable 😂

Siddharth Sharma : LOVE FROM INDIA <3 The thing is INDIANS value money over anything else. People outside INDIA generally don't factor the money point in the scenario until very later stages of the buying decisions. But people in INDIA will do whatever it takes to extract out every thing they can for the money they spend. So, even if apple breaks those barriers that you mentioned it won't make a huge difference as we will simply not buy the product due to low specs and features offered for the money. Generally people who do buy apple products are either very rich or just trying to show-off in INDIA. Any other average INDIAN thinks more about "bang for buck" rather than the brand name itself. Think it like this, We think about the 10-20bucks we spend on our tea, what makes apple think that we won't think about the hefty amount being spent on a damn smartphone!

cafeta : iphone are for Hipsters that want to impress chicks!, and for people that dont understand technology but want to look cool!!

paul pinnock : No no no here's the reality most Indians are smart computer and Network also a hardware savvy very much so that's why most of the i-tech Outsourcing are done in India are around that Geographic region they know iPhones are pieces of crap for people that don't really know much about phones and specs people who just want to be groupies who just want a phone for other people that think they're cool trendy me too most people I know that use iPhones know absolutely nothing about the phone away from one or two features that use everyday or every minute of the day and they think it's the coolest thing usually it's something other manufacturer had for years Apple just knows how to the market to those idiots not saying everyone that uses iPhone or idiots of course but a very large percentage anyway very good informative video

Android gaming india : ya man why need iphone when there is a lot of android phones

Mandar Kumbhar : I am indian, I DONT USE CREDIT CARD. and all other points you mentioned were so true. you did your homework

Far J : The real reason why Apple failed in India because Indians are generally cheap even among the rich ones. Go and ask Russell Peters if you don't believe me. Indians will not pay a high price for any items including smartphones.

Sonai : I'm frm India. Everything us true 100%.

FA TH ER : iPhones are dumbphones.... These are only famoua in its logos. Not its working condition. Continues use of iphone may slow itself. But android is not.

Lu Xiang : iPhone failed in India because of following reasons: Very costly Charger less commonly available Single sim card slot Nonexpandable memory Low battery backup Less repairability due to costly spares and non-availability of spare parts. Less durability Very much delicate.

Harshit Agarawal : Indians people replaces mobile frequently within 6 months as new things came up, buying an iPhone means entering apple ecosystem which required mac book, iPod, iPad, etc. Apple ecosystem have high walls entering ones then difficult to came out whereas google or amazon have open ecosystem.

ajay kumar : I am Indian and using Samsung currently. Because battery of apple is too less, it's difficult to transfer data from iOS to window lappy. Apple also doing well , if u compare previous performance of apple with current period, so will se appreciation of 300% . But android is doing much better than apple no doubt. People here prefers Oneplus more than Apple.

daya sagar : Yes,I agree with you,it is less matter for Indians about the brand Apple,we choose value for money phones like OnePlus and Xiomi

Rafat Shareef : Indians don't buy the iPhone because their overpriced and they're not stuck in the ecosystem

Qazi Shujaat : Hi this side shujaat from 🇮🇳 if we talk about the the price of apple products it's way higher if compared to other countries and oso people cannot find the iPhone's as user friendly reason being in apple Music we cannot find traditional songs, apple maps are not working at all, people cannot afford to buy apple TV to mirror the screen, as u mentioned in the video majority of the people hea in India don't use credit cards so cannot even purchase applications And now if we talk about the services of apple products in India m sorry to say but it's pathetic I was having an iphone7 due to software update my device touch id stopped working I went to Apple authorized service center they quoted a price of 45k INR to get the whole unit replacement as their is no service options and then I got my device serviced outside country and that was very convienient option for me So it's a universal fact apple needs to think how the service and the market can be improved in INDIA

Broodjekaas ! : Cuz India is broke.
