Buying The New iPhone? Hold On, Here Are 10 Other Things You Can Buy Instead!

Buying The New iPhone? Hold On, Here Are 10 Other Things You Can Buy Instead!

Every year, no scratch that, every six months, Apple comes out with a bigger, better and faster version of its smartphone. And yet again, it has come out with another series of its X phones - XS, XS Max and XR. The Xs will go on sale in India from October 26 and has a starting price tag of whopping Rs 76,900. It wasn't unexpected though, now was it?

Although one of the models of X series, XR, is comparatively cheaper than the iPhone X, it's still almost a lakh. The other variants cross the 1L mark and touch 1.5L. WHAT?! And as a person who works almost 40 hours a week, money comes hard and goes easy, so I guess we need to spend it wisely.

So in a fun mood today, we came up with 10 things that you can buy at the same price of the new iPhone XR (or less). 

1. A Euro Trip

Life is short. Go on that Europe trip you have always been planning! And if you've got Rs 76k in your bank balance, then a Europe trip is easily possible. You might not be able to cover the whole continent, but Paris, Amsterdam and Zurich are totally possible within that budget.

Check out a few trips here, here and here.

2. 307 Cups Of Starbucks Coffee

A basic regular sized coffee in Starbucks is about Rs 250 approximately, and Rs 76,000/250 = 307 cups of coffee. That's almost 10 months of Starbucks if I have one every day. Bye iPhone, need caffeine more!

3. Buy A Laptop
