Let’s face it. Owning an iPhone X for most of us is not less than a dream. Therefore we look for options closer home: an iPhone 8 maybe, an iPhone 7 or maybe an iPhone SE. But how about renting an iPhone X?
RentoMojo, a rental website mainly for furniture and house appliances has come with plans which offer people the chance to rent a smartphone, especially ultra-premium ones like the iPhone X, Google Pixel 2, or the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
This facility is available in Bengaluru, Delhi, Gurgaon, Mumbai and Noida.
How does one go about it?
As per the website, the minimum subscription period to rent a phone is six months, which can be further expanded after making another subscription. Depending on the subscription, the rental is decided and every month, the user has to pay a fixed amount. Also, the user is required to pay a deposit for the device.
