    Planning to get a iphone primarily for calling and use few important apps. My samsung s5 has surrendered with me testing hundreds of apps ! want to make it a backup phone and use the iphone as front line. I had iphone 6s in mind. Will be the best thing for a low budget ? dont want to compromise of display !
    Please suggest..
    Thanks !

    Get a used one with some warranty left; can be had under 30K.

    Not at all when for 38.5K you can get iP7 brand new. Unless you are occupied with good camera on it, 128GB is long way to fill up. Honestly, 64GB is apt but Apple being Apple, has nothing between 32GB and 128GB for iP7/7+.

    6S Plus 128GB at 30K makes sweet deal though.

    Buy a 6s 32gb max bro. don't waste your money, i could have suggested u 6 but it doesn't have 2gb ram. 6s is fast. don't u waste money on 7 , as i just upgraded from 6s to 7 and sold 6s 16gb for 18k, and bought 7 for 38.5k and the only thing i can think off that was an upgrade was the money which apple looted me for. there isn't a damn diff b/w 6s and 7 and morever on 7 i had to spend 4k for a bluetooth headphones.

    tl'dr just buy a 6s and that too from olx for max 20k for 32 gigs on a mint condition and u r good to go for 2-3 years.

    Browsing and watching media on its tiny screen is a pain. Otherwise its same as 6s

    Quite no go device unless you want small screen. On paper it seems similar to iPhone 6S but there are few corners cut, which may or may not matter. Front cam is same as that of 5S. 3D touch is omitted and touch ID sensor is first gen.
