Planning to buy any of the S21 series in India? Go through this post before buying,Hope it helps.
1.Best Pre Booking benifit:
Anyone planning to buy S21 just wait for the S21FE later this year as the FE will have better features and lower price.. can go ahead with pre booking S21+ or S21Ultra..
HDFC credit card users gets 7k instant cashback on S21+ and 10k instant cashback on S21Ultra.. So beg borrow steal HDFC cards from friends and family while pre ordering.
Also on buying from official Samsung Shop you get Rs.2k off on all phones.
S21 Ultra has the best pre booking offer with Active Watch 2 worth Rs.23k for Rs.990.. S21+ offers Buds live for Rs.990 on pre booking.. Smart Tag is free across the line up on pre booking..
Also if you don't like Watch Active 2/Buds Live as a pre booking gift with your respective smartphones you can opt for Rs.10k e-voucher which can be used to buy products mentioned in the screenshot below.
Summary for Pre Booking:
S21 - Don't pre-book, wait for S21 FE.
S21+ - Buds Live(Rs.990) & Smart Tag OR Rs.10k voucher & Smart Tag.
S21 Ultra - Active Watch 2(Rs.990) & Smart Tag OR 10k voucher & Smart Tag.
1.Rs 2k off on Samsung Shop(20k Advantage Offer).
2. HDFC Credit Card Instant Cashback - 7k on S21+ & 10k on S21 Ultra.
3. Youtube Premium for 4 months free.
4. Save 18% on GST on business purchase(Get GST Invoice).
If you want Buds Pro then opt for 10k voucher isntead of Buds Live/Active Watch 2. Buds pro will be definitely expensive so you might have to pay the differential price. Anyone coming from older device and needs adapter don't opt for 10k voucher just for adapter. You'll get the 25watt adapter under Rs.2k seperately.
Who should buy S21 series:
People having Note 9 and older can upgrade to S21 series only if they feel like upgrading this year. If you can wait then i personally feel should wait for exynos with AMD chip that will be the ultimate flagship. Also people having doubts about exynos 2100 should not pre book we all know we'll get good deals during Flipkart BBD later this year. But do not expect deals as good as S20+ if the exynos is actually good enough then the prices won't go down drastically.
Hope this post helps in making good purchasing decision. I am using Note 10 plus will continue to use until 2022.
Indian pricing for the iphone 12 series is ridiculous.. Try getting it from U.S.A. or Dubai if you have friends/family.. Also S10 plus is not that old and samsung is going to support software for 3 major OS.. So even if you want to go for iphone wait until they start manufacturing in India.. Prices will go down when they manufacture here..
