    I'll clarify, as an example I had an iPhone 5s, and used that for many years until the battery caught fire, took it in and got a new Samsung Galaxy Edge S7 for free. Samsung wants you to switch over from Apple, Apple wants you to switch over from Samsung. So you can play the two companies against eachother since both offer free upgrades usually. Sometimes phones are a year or a few months old but still, if you want a free phone that's the best way to do it and they're all brand new.

    Very slim chances unless R-Jio offers one heck of a deal for s7/s8 and iPhones.

    while android is a forever ram hungry os, it is a whole different ball game with ios when it comes to ram.

    It is true that iOS needs less RAM than Android but 1 GB isn't enough for iOS nowadays. The browsing is awful because of low RAM in older iDevices with new iOS.

    Doesn't hurt to ask, these companies love converting their rivals over, it's kind of petty but consumers benefit

    Thank you for all of your suggestions. Friends can you clarify me one thing?
    While Samsung J7 Max and Samsung J7 Pro are similar in specifications, why J7 Pro is overpriced? And there is no sign of Gorilla Glass protection too.
