Undoubtedly, iPhones are the most popular smartphones in the world with its own set of pros and cons. With that being said, the Cupertino tech giant has been slowly cranking up the average cost of the iPhone especially in the past couple of years. This move was abhorred by most of the people including few hardcore Apple fans. As a result, the company has limited the production of the recently launched iPhone XR, iPhone XS and XS max.
While few remain loyal to iOS, there are lots of consumers out there, wanting to switch to Android eco-system due to its open-end possibility and affordability. If you are the one planning for a switch, this could be the best time to shift from your iPhone to the OnePlus 6T for some premium Android experience.
One of the major reasons is its price point. Carrying a retail tag of Rs. 37,999, the OnePlus 6T is more than half the price of the iPhone XR. Another reason is based on Android customisation. As per the Google claims, Android Pie is one of the major updates in the Android’s history which in different direction focussed heavily on Assistant’s and AI’s, with increased automation at the core of the OS update. In this way, OnePlus 6T comes with a latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset optimised with OxygenOS for the smooth and speedy experience.
Four years ago, when OnePlus had entered the Indian market, they started selling exclusively on Amazon.in and this unique business model has been a key part of the company’s phenomenal growth in the country over the last four years. Today, Amazon.in remains OnePlus’ exclusive partner for online sales and four years later, the two companies have formed a unique bond, consistently working together on interesting collaborations resulting in mutual growth.
In a bid to celebrate the four years collaboration between Amazon India and OnePlus, latter has announced its biggest-ever community rewards on its latest flagship, the OnePlus 6T, which will go live on 30th November 2018.
As a part of this celebration, the company is running several offers among which, exchanging an iPhone or OnePlus phone for the OnePlus 6T will give you an additional Rs.3000 off.
The OnePlus and Amazon.in partnership has been responsible for several milestones in the industry through unique customer experiences like ‘Invite-only’ purchases, an engaging ‘Referral Program’ and sales like the ‘Fast AF’ sale that was created to pre-book the OnePlus 6. Reports over the years have even credited one company’s growth or success to the other.
According to a report by Counterpoint Market Monitor service titled ‘E-commerce Contribution to Smartphone Shipments Reached a Record 38% in Q1 2018’: “Amazon dominated the premium smartphone segment with 77% market share, thanks to OnePlus.” Such a valued long-standing partnership is almost unseen in the industry today.
With each flagship released, OnePlus has become the smartphone of choice for Amazon.in customers. In fact, during popular sales campaigns like Prime Day, the Freedom Sale or the Great Indian Festival, OnePlus has time and again emerged as the best-seller. Today, it remains the highest grossing premium smartphone on Amazon.in and the best-rated smartphone for the longest period of time across segments.
The anniversary offers that will go live starting 30 November include:
- Rs.1500 cashback on all Citibank credit and debit cards on the purchase of the OnePlus 6T
- 6 months of no-cost EMI
- Existing OnePlus users will be eligible for an additional Rs. 3000 off on exchange of their OnePlus device for the OnePlus 6T.
