Between the two, Flipkart's sale is app-only while Amazon offers its sale via desktop as well as app. We take a look at some of the best deals offered by both mega sales.

 Flipkart vs Amazon: Who is offering better tech deals?

The iPhone 6 still holds good for many customers looking to get a good deal online

Apple's popular iPhone from last year is yet in high demands everywhere. Luckily, the costly smartphone is offered at a discounted price on both portals. The iPhone 6 (16GB) is available at Rs 37,999 via Amazon India. On the other hand, the device is available at a price of Rs 39,999 via Flipkart. Flipkart is also offering an exchange offer via which you can purchase the device for as low as Rs 24,999. Click here to find out more. 

Cash on delivery is not available for the device on Amazon while it is available via Flipkart. Amazon offers a one-day delivery while Flipkart would take approximately 13 days to have the product delivered to you.

2. Xiaomi Mi 4i


If the iPhone is out of budget, the Xiaomi Mi 4i would turn out to be more friendly.

Xiaomi's Mi 4i is a popular choice and is available for Rs 9,999 on both Flipkart and Amazon.

Althought Flipkart offers cash on delivery, longer delivery times are an added challenge. The company states that it would take at least 12 days for delivery and sadly, faster delivery options are not available. If you opt for an exchange program, you could receive a discount of up to Rs 4000 depending on the phone model.

Amazon offers a same day delivery 'guarantee' for smartphones which might be the most impressive aspect of the deal, considering the volume of sales, as well as the fact that these devices are purchased close to a festival, probably as gifts.

The Mi 4i offers a 5-inch HD capacitive touchscreen with 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution and 441 ppi pixel density. Also includes 1.7GHz Snapdragon 615 64-bit octa core 2nd generation processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal memory along with 13MP rear camera and 5MP front facing camera.

One of the most popular audio-accessory brand SkullCandy is offering great discounts on its products. The Skullcandy JIB in-ear earphones are available at a price of Rs 399 while the same accessory is available at a price of Rs 598 on Flipkart. The problem arising here is that Amazon does not offer free delivery on products which are priced below 500. On the other hand, delivery for a pair of headphones would take approximately 14 days which can be quite upsetting for a few.

The device includes a large 10 millimetres speaker driver along with two silicone gel sizes as well.
