There are many companies that are partnering with mobile brands to launch handset with effective price tag. Flipkart and Vodafone have now partnered and have launched an entry level 4G smartphone #MyFirst4GSmartphone for an effective price of Rs. 999.

Whenever you hear the word effective it means that initially you will need to pay the full amount but gradually over a period of time the cashback that you will get will effectively bring down the price of the handset.

Now for this effective scheme to work you need to follow certain rules which most likely will be particular amount of recharges per month for a particular period – 18 / 36 months. So the handset is the Intex Aqua A4 that is priced at Rs. 4,999.

You get a special discount of Rs. 2000, the handset price then becomes 2,999. And if you use vodafone and recharge worth Rs. 2,700 in 18 months then you get Rs. 900 cashback and if you continue recharges for Rs. 2,700 for another 18 months you get Rs. 1,100 cashback so a total of Rs. 2000 which brings the effective price of the handset to Rs. 999.

  1. Anything with compulsory recharge clause will fail to attract Indian consumers..
    Direct low price like 5A or Tenor D for 4999 is what Indian consumers will prefer

  3. All these telecom companies are jumping the gun and will not succeed. The only viable option would be the the $30 i.e. INR 2000 Google phone to come soon with Android O.Because 2k is viable price for lot of Indians.

    1. Better get a good handset, for me makes no sense, look at specs most cases these are low powered handsets.

        1. Good specs, comes to Rs. 7,300 approx if you go with free shipping but that will cost you another 7K if you get call from customs. The next option is to go with DHL shipping but that is 30+ USD extra hence makes sense to buy a costly handset and use DHL.

          1. Right Gogi, I bought Andoer AN400 for Rs:2266 using free shipping option , but Customs asked for rs:1200 packed thro India Post ..

          2. Action camera pack was big?, if packet is big / heavy they check it. Also they will then check the price on net if you search it is US $44.48.

  5. These schemes wont attract too much customers. jio phone is not that much successful as expected initially bcoz of these obligatory conditions. Better to launch a 4G feature phone with Volte at around ₹1500.
