Chuck the intro. Here’s a scary story: You’re busy talking to your friend, chatting about that whacky weekend get-together. You walk towards the balcony, tilt your head skyward laughing and in the next moment, the power-packed monster mobile you just bought, slips off your hand from the third floor, zooms past that window pane you thought might just stop it midway, misses the extended roof of Sharmaji, tosses over Mishraji’s Audi and finally succumbs to the gravitational pull with a thud amplifying to Dolby 7.1 surround sound that is audible only to you.
With a heavy heart and heaving breath, you watch your prized possession crying for help. Bereft of Nougat’s sweetness, there lies your phone biting the dust, wearing a flimsy coat around it and the ‘Latest Gorilla Glass Protection’ turns out to be an evolutionary scam, while the ‘Toughened Glass Screen Guard’ is just not tough enough. You’re reminded of its ‘Warranty’ and you rush to the Authorised Service Centre, only to be told that damage of such magnitude isn’t covered in its warranty policy. Now your next bet is the roadside mobile shop, but what if they changed the phone parts or do a shoddy job?
Already feeling like going ‘Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!’ in horror?
