Apple has been dominating the smart phone market since the inception of commercial smart phones. There were smart phones created from at least a decade before Apple came up with their first (smart) phone which they named as iPhone, however, those older smart phones never hit the mainstream / mass consumers. We can safely say that Apple is the pioneer of commercially accepted widely used smart phones. Apple has a history of upping the game on existing technology to a whole new level. Same happened with the advent of Macintosh computers and same happened when the whole world was using a voice call and text messages only device, Apple gave the world a smart phone (iPhone) with the idea that you can converge a lot of other things on your phone.
While all of this is amazing, we were only trying to remind you how Apple iPhone had the first mover advantage and it kept the edge despite fierce competition from the likes of Samsung, Google, Huawei, and so many more.
In last few years, Apple shifted from introducing one flagship phone in every launch event to giving a wider range of phones for their customer to choose from. Difference between two variants can be in size, features and / or specifications. While this is all great, it sometimes confuses customers whether to buy a high-end iPhone from last year / older models or buy a low end phone from latest model. Well, you are in luck today, because we will cover some iPhone shopping recommendation in this blog.
Like we said, history and Apple’s launch strategy of iPhone is not our topic for this blog today. We want to give you a view of / talk about what are the current top quality iPhones that our readers can consider while not going beyond PKR 100,000 (1 lac).
Apple iPhone SE (2020) 64GB with Official Warranty: iPhone SE (2020) is available to purchase on QMart with listed price of Rs. 94,999. This is one of the low end model that Apple released during first half of 2020. Key purpose of this iPhone is to increase market share and give an iPhone in hands of customers who can spend a bit, but not the high premium of top quality iPhones. This one comes with a 4.7 inch screen size, single camera of 12 megapixels with focal length of f1.8, selfie camera of 7 megapixels and f2.2, 1821 mAh battery. It has an A13 bionic chipset which is a year older (was used in iPhone 11) but still very powerful compared to a lot of other / competing phones launched in 2020.
Apple iPhone 7 Plus 128GB with Official Warranty (PTA approved): iPhone 7 was released by Apple four years ago (Sep 2016) and is fairly decent option for someone who does not want to go beyond Rs. 100,000 to buy a feature packed reliable phone.
Apple iPhone 8 Plus: iPhone 8 plus is also priced lower than Rs. 100,000 in Pakistan however, it is not easily available for the moment.
