Planning To Buy iPhone XS? Checkout 9 Interesting Things You Can Buy Instead!
iPhone XS price starts at Rs 99,900. What else can you buy with this amount?
The new iPhones are out and just like every year, the kidney jokes are already out. Surprisingly even a kidney won’t suffice this year if you planning to sell it and get a new iPhone XS.
The new iPhone XS is insanely priced at 1 lakh rupees in the country, that too just for the base variant.
Even the so-called budget iPhone XR starts at Rs 76,990 in India. Are you kidding me? But, yeah some people will actually drop a lakh on a smartphone.
C’mon, why would you invest 1 lakh rupees for a fancy Apple smartphone?
While I was thinking what one can do with 1 lakh rupees, here is a list of better things you can do instead, everything probably you can do instead of buying a new iPhone XS:
Unlimited Jio Internet & Free Calls For Next 57 Years
You can recharge your Reliance Jio number with Rs 399 plan for 250 times. Each time you get 84 days of validity, so that sums up to 21,000 days. So you can enjoy free unlimited internet and calls for the next 21,000 days or 57 years on a trot.
Enjoy Netflix For Next 16.5 Years
With 1 lakh rupees you can recharge your Netflix account with Rs 500 per month for the next 200 months. So unlimited entertainment and top class TV shows for the next 16.5 years straight till your son is ready to go college.
1,000 Heineken Beers
A Heineken pint costs Rs 100 in Delhi, so you will be able to enjoy 1,000 Heineken beers with 1 lakh rupees. So, if you even have a single beer a day, you will need close to three years to run out of beers.
Get Ten Redmi Note 5 Smartphones
The Xiaomi mid-range bestseller Redmi Note 5 is currently available at a starting price of Rs 9,999. So you can buy 10 brand new Redmi Note 5 smartphones with 1 lakh rupees instead of a new Apple iPhone XS.
Groceries For Next 5 Years
If you have an average budget of around Rs 20,000 per annum for your groceries, with 1 lakh you can keep buying your monthly stuff for the next 5 years. So, food and needs for next 5 years or an iPhone XS?
Eat 400 Pizzas
With an average price of Rs 250 per pizza, you can actually buy 400 pizzas with 1 lakh rupees. Even if you eat one pizza a day, it will take you more than a year to complete all the pizzas.
Five Poco F1 Smartphones
Xiaomi Poco F1 comes with the industry-best Snapdragon 845 chipset, new liquid cooling technology, dual cameras, a big 4,000mAh battery and more. Starting at Rs 20,999, buying a Poco F1 does make a lot of sense.
Make 4 Lakh Rupees Out Of It
Instead of buying a new iPhone XS for 1 lakh, if you invest the same money in any standard mutual fund as a lump sum investment which offers a yearly interest between 16 to 18 percent, the money will grow close to 4 lakh rupees in just 5 years.
Get A Royal Enfield Bullet
You can even buy a Royal Enfield Bullet 350 instead of buying an iPhone XS. The Bullet 350 will only cost a few extra thousand bucks, and seems like a better idea than wasting away a lakh on a fancy smartphone.
