I don't think there is a substantial price difference. You may be saving about 10%. Moreover, check whether you'll be getting international warranty when you buy in Dubai. If warranty is not there, better buy it here itself.

Not really. Hardly a Rs 200-500 here or there. Mobiles are cheaper and warranty is assured if you buy from India.

From India. Mobiles (and most electronics) are cheaper in India these days.

Even if you save something in Dubai, it could be equal to the 12.5% VAT in India. But when it comes to the warranty and service, buying from India is the best choice. There are competitive prices both in Dubai and India depending on the dealer and your need for bill & warranty. These links will help you to compare both places. ..:: www.indiagsm.com ::.. and Jackys Electronics
