Too Long; Didn't Read

Unlike the West, only <a href="https://www.theverge.com/2018/7/25/17611438/iphone-in-india-obstacles-to-success" target="_blank">1% of Indians</a> use iPhones. Of course, this is mainly due to Apple’s sky high pricing. An Android smartphone with the latest specs can be had for one tenth the price of the latest iPhone. Besides, Androids also offer useful features that iPhones don’t. Like you can’t connect a USB pen drive to an iPhone and share music. This is a deal breaker for most Indians who seem surprised when informed that music needs to be paid for. Ok, maybe they do know it, but they don’t understand it. As in, I ‘knew’ piracy was bad, but I didn’t really ‘know’ what it meant till I started writing and unexpectedly found one of my stories published word for word, under another name! However even 1% is a huge market for Apple in India as that adds up to <a href="https://www.theverge.com/2018/7/25/17611438/iphone-in-india-obstacles-to-success" target="_blank">nearly a million iPhones</a> being sold in India in the first half of this year.
