I might be out of the loop, but doesn't the iPhone Xs and Xs Max currently have quite a few charging issues? It would suck to fly to Dubai, buy a phone, fly back to India, and figure out that it doesn't work.

why not get something good. like a Nokia 7 plus? or the incoming 7.1 plus?

 

dont overspend on a phone when you can get something just as good if not better for a lot less.

I personally don't feel like a phone is ever worth that much but since you're already spending a silly amount on an iPhone I say just go do it. You seem to have more money than you know what to do with so why not?

Also, why can't you have the phone shipped to you from Dubai?

wouldn't that be the same situation as an XS? Just get a Galaxy if they're more available, my brother has the S8+ and it's a damn good phone. I was considering getting an OP 5T but they didn't have those on my carrier (Verizon), so I got an iPhone X. But if you don't prefer one OS over the other (I just like little details in iOS), then get an android, they're probably more readily available and are usually better bang for the buck.

Why not just get something like a S9+ for 57,340 rupees from amazon.in? I don't see why you can't get that and it's an extremely solid phone (Hell, even the cameras which are cancer in most Android devices is high quality in the S9+).

If you have a low budget (40,000 rupees), get something like a Note 8 (currently 43,000 rupees on amazon.in, huge discount right now).

 

If you absolutely need iOS, an iPhone 8 should do. (53,000 rupees).

How... will this actually help though? Even if any of Linus' team see this (would help to tag them), and then if they make a video, that still won't effect Apple in any way whatsoever that I can see, and certainly not pressure them to make the Indian market for iDevices better. Heck, sometimes it's the local laws and governments that stop companies, not the companies themselves.

See in india people buy iphone because they think apple is the biggest company in the world. And apple is taking advantage of that.
