The period for which you can have it ranges from six months, a year to two years.

Many people aspire to experience the flagship devices but affordability is a challenge.

Years ago, using a premium smartphone meant digging a hole in the pocket and buying one. Then came the facility of paying the price in installments which was a relief for many tech aficionados who wanted to get the experience of a high-end smartphone.

The online renting portal RentoMojo seems to evolve the trend further by offering much-desired devices like the iPhone X on rent.

Apart from the flagship Apple offering, the list extends to the iPhone 8, Google Pixel 2, Samsung Galaxy S9 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. The period for which you can have it ranges from six months, a year to two years. However, looking at the rent amount which varies according to the period, you would surely wish to have it for longer than six months.

Starting with the phone with the least rent, Google Pixel 2 could be taken into possession for Rs 2,099 per month for 24 months. However, opting for the six-month scheme would cost you Rs 5,398 per month. Moreover, you have to pay an additional Rs 5,398 as a deposit which is refundable. Other smartphones including iPhone 8, Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note are available with similar rental schemes.

In case you wish to go a notch higher and get the experience of the Apple iPhone X, you need to shell out more. The 24-month rental scheme will cost you Rs 4,299 per month while the six month-rental scheme demands you a hefty sum of Rs 9,299 per month. The refundable deposit is also higher for the iPhone X which is Rs 9,998. Well, at the end of your rental period, you can also buy the phone by paying the remaining amount apart from the sum of rents.

While offering furniture, vehicles and electronics, this idea of giving out smartphones on rent appears to be a great idea by RentoMojo since many people aspire to experience the flagship devices but affordability is a challenge.
