Amazon India users have given a big Thumbs down to Apple’s new iPhone 7 reviews show, which has been recently launched in India.
This over-priced new model from Apple has fared very badly with a user rating of 2 out of 5.
Out of 282 user reviews only 54 gave iphone 7, the highest rating of 5 stars, followed by 4 stars by 12 people.
But the most shocking news for Apple’s flagship model is that the majority (192 users) have given it the lowest rating of just a single star.
While lot of criticism against the Apple’s new iphone 7, is due to its price (Rs 70,000). A majority feels that Apple should lower the iphone prices in India to help all buy the new premium brand phone, ”Apple should either drop the price for their products in India, or stop selling their products.”
“Over-priced and little innovation. Has apple gone insane with the product prices in India?,”commented a user, while another customer quips, ”Overpriced.. Even after selling one kidney it’s out of budget. Lol. Better to use iPhone 5S which i have been using for 2 years and it’s best phone ever that has been made by Apple.”
It seems most of the hostile reactions are coming from those annoyed that the phone is beyond their reach.
Some others feel that they can postpone buying, hoping a new, affordable and better model will appear soon.
A user shared this view to prospective buyers, ”Status symbol for show off. Way over priced for the specs provided. Use it as a show off piece till the next iPhone launch. Because if you want to show off your father’s money, you got to have the latest iphone.”
Many users think Apple’s previous models were better than the current one, “no so great changes compare to 6s,
most of the features are available in other brands at half rate.”
However, tech freaks and iphone loyalists have wholeheartedly supported the brand saying most of the reviews have come from pessimists and not from actual customers.
“I have used Apple products, and they are best. No compromise on quality. But if you can’t afford these, or don’t want to buy, please don’t leave unnecessary low rates reviews, as they affect the overall rating of the product.”
Another user added, “There is no point in posting low rating reviews without owning the device . Amazon review system should change. “
