The maximum exchange benefit of Rs 14,703 is applicable only when you exchange iPhone 7 Plus for the iPhone 6. Yes, it is almost unreasonable to expect someone to exchange an iPhone 7 Plus launched in 2016 for an iPhone 6, which was launched in 2014. In terms of exchange, the OnePlus 5T will fetch you Rs 12,000 in exchange while Google Pixel 2 XL and Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will get you only Rs 10,000 and Rs 7,000 respectively.
Let’s recap of the features of iPhone 6 for a moment. The iPhone 6 launched in September 2014 was the first major redesign of iPhone and the first to get a larger 4.7-inch Retina display with a resolution of 1334 x 750 pixels. The smartphone is powered by dual-core Apple A8 CPU coupled with 1GB RAM and 32GB storage.
The iPhone 6 features an 8-megapixel primary camera with phase detection autofocus and dual-LED flash. There is a 1.2-megapixel selfie camera with face detection and HDR support at the front. It features a front-mounted Touch ID button and is backed by a 1,810mAh battery. Apple is one of the most sought after brand in the country but the four year old iPhone 6 does not quite make the cut.

Apple iPhone SE, which is assembled locally in Bengaluru, is the best-selling iPhone in India.
