@Apple users, are your recurring payments going through ? All my sub renewals on App Store are getting declined on Apple - ICICI, HDFC, Axis etc. 

 

I do have working recurring payments going to Google etc (and the cards work fine otherwise). Just the App Store subs are affected. 

 

Nope. Tried 3 CC's, ICICI, SBI and HDFC and they all failed. Had to resort to adding credit to Apple account via UPI.

 

Netflix for some reason refused to accept my SBI card after the new mandate but thankfully is working with a different card. Beyond annoyed at this point with these new RBI regulations.

I am not sure if I am gonna buy any of these, might as well go with a cheaper device and change it 2 years down the line.

Flagships would always be priced like this anyways... And I would've gone with the plus if only the cameras weren't a step down from the ultra but that's the ploy :thumbdown:

my organization's BYOM reimbursement should land me this phone for about 25-30k.

That is a good policy from your organization. All mine does is reimburse 500 for internet chargers that too only after submitting bill.

Yup, I do have to submit a bill though, and they have 2 year blocks. Claimed for the S21U in the 20-21 block, now gonna claim 5he S22U for the 22-23 block. This phone should be good enough for the next 2 yrs.

S22/22+ still have great cameras as per early reviews. I don't think there will be much difference unless you do pixel peeping for those beard-face selfies.

I just don't like S22U's shape, seems uncomfortable, excessive screen curve and quite heavy. Also, I don't really need the S-pen and I can't trust the ingress protection in case the pen is misplaced.

Is this reimbursement part of the annual salary? or maybe CTC?

Or this over and above?

 

Because if it's the latter then I need to renegotiate with my company.

2 years is a good block time. Ours is 3 years, but then the company also gives a corporate phone..so any reimbursement is a win win.

Ideally should be non CTC component.

Its over and above. There is a fixed reimbursement for mobiles every two years. Most companies provide a mobile phone and sim, mine pays for my mobile bill (or provides a sim) and gives me 35k every two years for a phone (or a phone worth ~35k). Sales guys get iPhones, but they have a 4 year refresh cycle.
