Hello everyone, I hope you’ll are well and safe.

Someone from my circle is coming to my town from the US. They have space to bring a device with them. Need your kind suggestions on purchase.

Usage: I am looking for a good Camera. No games and default storage will be sufficient as most data are on the cloud.


Option : 1

Pixel 6 : ~550 USD

Option : 2
iphone __ : ___ + Charger😑


Samsung and others are cheaper or equivalent priced here, Hence avoiding other brands.

Never used an iPhone before, so I don’t know which iPhone is WFM at the moment. I need your suggestions on that.

Apart from that: If you know of any excellent item that is overpriced/not available in India and the best in the US, then I would like to hear from you.

Go for iphone 13 carrier unlocked  . Unbox and bring to avoid customs 

I have owned various pixel devices in the past , they always have some issue , either green/ yellow screen tint or top speaker dead after few months or phone  has charging issues

Isn’t iPhone the cheapest (compared to what he’ll pay in US) during big billion sales?

Apparently, yes. The price difference is 17k on apple sites from both countries for the iPhone 13. I was in the assumption of the vast price difference 😅

iPhone 13 pro will be better. Price difference is quite a lot. Not much price difference for iPhone 13.

Pixel’s hardware issues/ after sales support here in India might cause issues later.

I would suggest go for pro model if u r planning to bring iphone 
non pro is not worth the hassle 
or go with some android phones like you mentioned pixel 6 but first try offline there are some shopkeepers selling imported phones with some margin you might get some good deal specially in delhi
I havnt bought anything myself from these imported phone sellers but thinking of buying
if anyone bought from these imported phone sellers pls let us know ur review

Agreed, for 13 Max Pro, the difference is 40,500 INR.
Will look into it.

Don’t get any phone, use your old one, you will save a lot of money

iPhone 12/13 you can get, if you like apple’s awful HDR processing. Otherwise Pixel 6 all the way. It’s a brick though, just keep that in mind, and also that new camera hardware isn’t really properly optimised by Google, and it’s been months since release anyway. Quality control issues are very much a fact with Pixels, so you will have to try your luck. If your are okay with iPhone cameras, then go with them, as there is no devices more VFM than an iPhone.

if your friend can accommodate, best is to bring dry/wet robo vaccum cleaner. USA has best.

mobiles and others are so so option  unless obsessed with it.

edit:

VFM in my opinion, can easily work for years.
