With each generation the iPhone has advanced in technology and performance, driving consumers crazy with their exciting array of features. It is interesting to see the changes the iPhone has undergone with each generation and it will be helpful in deciding which iPhone is right for you.
The first ever iPhone had a 3.5” screen and a storage capacity of up to 8GB. With the iPhone 3G the storage capacity rose to 16 GB. However, the iPhone 3GS with 32GB was far better. It also had a 3 MP camera compared to the older 2 MP camera. You can still get your hands on it for Rs. 11, 590.
You can get the iPhone 4 with 16 GB/32GB. It has a screen resolution of 960x640p and an Apple A4 processor. It has a 5 megapixel camera as well as VGA. The Apple iPhone 4 would cost you around Rs. 16,799. Pay a little extra and you will get the iPhone 4S at Rs. 17,833. It has a storage capacity up to 64 GB. Another advantage over the iPhone 4 is that it has the Apple A5 processor. It also has a more powerful 8 MP camera. A big addition in the iPhone 4S is Siri.
The iPhone 5 has the same storage capacity as the iPhone 4S. It does however have a larger screen with a higher resolution of 1136×640 pixels. It comes packed with the Apple A6 processor. It has an 8 MP camera with 720p HD. You can get your hands on the Apple iPhone 5 64GB for around Rs. 42,450.
There is one big difference between the iPhone 5 and the iPhone 5C which is the presence of the Apple A7 processor in 5C. Besides that you get a 1.2 MP front camera and greater colour variations. The iPhone 5c 32GB should cost you around Rs. 39,990.
A popular choice among consumers is the iPhone 5S. However, there is not much difference between the 5S and 5C except that 5S has a better battery capacity of 1560 mAh and is lighter in weight. There is however a huge difference in price as the iPhone 5S 32GB will cost you around Rs. 50,000.
The iPhone 6 has a 4.7”screen which is much wider than the 5S. It also has a better resolution of 1334×750. This powerful device comes packed with the Apple A8 processor. The 128GB iPhone 6 will cost you Rs. 66,658. However if you are willing to shop in this price range it is best to go for the iPhone 6 Plus which will cost you Rs. 72,798 for the 6Plus 64 GB and up to Rs. 81,570 for 128 GB. It has a massive 5.5” screen and excellent resolution of 1920×1080. It is heavier than all the other iPhones but that is understandable.
The iphone prices in India are surely different than those sold in the USA or rather any other European country; however that does not stop the Apple fanatics to opt for it.
The original iPhone itself was pretty big in terms of performance but the latest iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are the real heroes. It pays to be a part of the iPhone generation!
