It's pricey tbh. Still I am making choice. I think buying from India will be much better, which will come with warranty ofc.

Have to throw or hide Box and original packaging, if caught there will be a penalty and 35% customs duty.

talked to the guy , he told me 32 GB will be 400$ + 10% taxes = 440$ + shipping ,etc
Think the price difference will be 5k INR . Gonna buy it from here itself . :)
So a friend can't buy a phone as a gift from there when he comes back?
