There’s no denying that the iPhone 11 Pro Max is the apex in the tech-sphere today. With its massive debut just a few weeks ago, it’s already one of the most desired tech tools in the market today. But apart from next-gen cameras and ultra-quick phone chips, the iPhone 11 Pro Max also bears quite a hefty price-tag, leaving us wondering if it’s worth paying for. For roughly Rs 1.31 lakh, you can buy the iPhone apex today, but incase you’re looking for an alternative buy, here’s some of the coolest tech tools you can cop instead.

Samsung 4K Smart UHD TV

With a gigantic 65″ screen, this Samsung 4K ultra-thin TV is built to embrace every little detail it can. The unique 4K UHD screen brings out a unique pop of colour and the crispness of a Samsung TV. Apart from being super efficient, it’s also incredibly smart with Samsung’s built in Smart Hub. If your internet is strong enough, it can offer lag-free real-time mobile screen-sharing too. It may not be Samsung’s best yet, but for this price, it’s offering quite a hefty package.

Price: Rs 1,20,000.

Dell XPS 13

If you’re looking for more processing power than an iPhone, indulge in a slightly larger-screened DelL XPS 13. Although it’s just 13.3 inches, it proves to be an extremely efficient travel tool. It packs 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of space as a stock build. Why is this product great? Simply for its ease of portability, speed, and convenience of use. Most might think a 13-inch screen is too small, but there’s a great advantage to its size.

Price: Rs 1,17,000* approx.

Sony Blu-ray Home Theatre System

Yup, you can actually amp up your living room with the less than half the money you were supposed to spend on an iPhone. This Sony system comes with  four tower speakers and two sub-woofers that guarantee perfect surround sound. Just like a good sound system should, it comes with two special modes: Football Mode and Digital Music Arena, to suit the two ambiances.

Fujifilm XT3

Remember when they said smartphones are draining us of our productivity? It’s true, but maybe you could take up a hobby instead. Start off your photography journey with the Fujifilm XT3, it comes with a 26.1 Megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS 4 Sensor which isn’t the best in the game but it’s worthwhile. The fourth generation of the X Series and 3.69-million-dot high resolution EVF. It also comes with an X-Processor 4 for image processing.

Price: Rs 1,21,000*

Frederique Constant Horological Smartwatch

One a much more classier note, we’d suggest investing in a Frederique Constant smartwatch instead of an iPhone 11. Running Quartz, it features a date sub-dial at 6 o’clock and does everything a smartwatch is supposed to do. Activity tracking, sleep tracking and alerts. It syncs up with the FC smartphone app to display all your progress. The one we’ve selected is a navy dial that comes with an impeccable leather strap of the same hue, but feel free to explore other classier variants.

Price: Rs 1,03,800.
