I-Phone is the most overrated phone in the world. Period! Its awesome design and its cult brand make people go crazy. I will not go into the details who built the phone, when it was introduced and how it is different in terms of specifications from the Android version of smartphones. But what led me to write this post how this phone rules the world on the people’s mentality.
Just flaunt the Apple logo, it will make people put on their knees. Impress the new girlfriend by showing her the latest model. Her adrenaline will rush to its new heights. And brag it wherever you go, you are already introduced. Over the years, people have made a clear distinction that Apple users are different from rest of the world just because they are having a f***ing I-phone. And the basic reason is, you have bought the world’s top brand phone.
One thing is now clear buying an Apple I-phone is not just the need but to make a sound impression on others. In other words, just ‘show off’. But does that impression makes you a successful person in the eyes of the public? And for how long this impression remains there? Let’s consider this example. Apple I-Phone 5s was introduced in the market in October 2014 and more than 4 million phones were ordered even before its launch. Just three years down the line, this model is now outdated. And you are ready to spend the hard-earned money to buy the latest I-phone to fulfill the temptations and to flaunt it all the time.
I am not emphasizing you should never buy an I-phone. Nor I believe every I-phone user has bought it for only one purpose. If you are having enough budgets and there is a need of it, just go ahead. Almost every year, a new model is introduced and Apple knows it crystal clear, India has a huge market value. For marketing purposes, they highlight the new model that comes with new features in a way as if it’s altogether different from the past ones. This is how these big companies survive in the market.
Let’s get back to the debate. Each one of us struggle in life one or other way. But at the same time, we want to buy things to fulfill temptations. Success is not just buy, buy and buy things all the time. If your friend has bought it recently, it doesn’t mean you should buy it too. Set your priorities what things to buy and what not to buy. Under constraint budgets, we should differentiate between the ‘need’ and ‘want’. If you are eager to buy the latest I-phone, try to make it a need as well. With I-phone, you can capture the good pictures and send them for publication to earn money. You can also capture videos and upload it on your YouTube channel. You don’t need to buy a professional camera; instead Apple phone can do the job better and fulfill both, your temptations and your needs as well. And then, enjoy the thrill!
