Do yourself a favour, go and buy something locally rather than ShitKart.

I did search offline but they didnt have the phones I want, some brands are online only. I wanted Motorola or Poco X4 Pro but the offline store either don't have it. I only asked in two stores. I will try more stores. I am looking to buy the new Moto G82 but it is Flipkart exclusive so hoping some store can arrange it for me without having to pay too much premium.

You can buy Mobiles from Flipkart as I have done in past with no issues.

 

Just keep in mind.

 

Don't ever opt for exchange.

Always make a video of unboxing the packet.

Any issues then post on all social media sites with proof.

Congrats ! The display is brilliant - day and night difference with usual Android displays, specially when watching HDR content (Netflix etc). 

 

I use the 30W brick since it can fast charge both iPhone and iPad. 

 

Also, for Whatsapp transfer, I used Dr Fone. Works perfectly, but FOLLOW THE STEPS PRECISELY !

 

 

I wish I knew this a week ago. Bought the iPhone 13.

Have a shortcut for - msging someone on whatsapp without adding their number etc etc. 
 

Those looking for similar option to message someone on android, just type wa.me/+91mobilenumber in the google search bar and press search. Works like a charm.

Yeah I used to do that while I was on Android. Apart from that, I need Wifi/BT toggle on home screen which isnt an option on iPhone. So had to use shortcuts for that.

Oddly enough I never had any issues with FK. Bought Pixel 4a last year and it got delivered in a day with good packaging. Amazon on the other hand has become terrible lately. Ordered IPad last month and the packaging was horrendous. It felt like the box was already opened, all the manuals and charger were displaced. Seller was trusted Appario Retail, went through the pain of Amazon CC which has gotten even worse now.  The guy shrugged it off as an issue during courier transport. At least the product itself looked new and I checked if it was refurbished/already used on Apple support page but it was absolutely new and got activated the same day I received it. I also did multiple tests that were on a reddit thread and it passed all, so kept it. But yeah, I would be cautious next time ordering any big electronics gadgets from them.

They weren't always like this though. I bought iPhone X from same seller in 2018 and it was hassle free!

I believe experiencea vary from person to person. Personally I never had a bad experience with Flipkart but I know a few people who had. With Amazon last year I ordered a smartwatch for wife and received an empty case with only booklets. Forgot to make a video of unboxing so i had no proof. But the Amazon CC just issued a replacement without any hassle. So, maybe it depends how helpful the customer care representative is. Usually if I get a stupid uncooperative one i disconnect the call and try again to get another one. And i do this with every CC. 

 

Also, for big electronic item i prefer buying from places like Croma or Vijay sales. Usually price is similar and they are also running discounts all the time. Last year when we remodelled our kitchen we bought all the appliances from Vijay Sales. Less headache when you can see what you are buying and interacting with a human is another plus.

Vijay Sales are really good for home appliances. Its good to see them putting up a good fight with all the big names like Croma/Reliance Digital etc. I always get the best discount at VS and also their staff knows the products unlike RD and Croma.

True. I don't know if it's only my experience with Croma guys near me but I found them to be arrogant and not helpful. On the other hand Vijay sale guys have always been professional and courteous.

Croma guys are generally arrogant as f**k. I've found much better peeps are RD and VS. 

Experience in Noida and Delhi.
