In what sense psr i455 is still better than newly launched psr e453 except having  table tanpura and some indian instruments and voices?

I haven't played either model, so I can't comment on their sounds. But I do have a PSR-E433, and I believe the PSR-I455 is essentially the same as the PSR-E433 except for some additional Indian voices and sounds, as well as having Tabla/Tanpura patterns as opposed to DJ patterns. The PSR-E453 should definitely be a better all-around keyboard than the PSR-I455, unless you have a specific need for the Tabla/Tanpura patterns. I'm not sure how the voices and styles compare; I believe that some of the voices which were included on the PSR-I455 but not on the PSR-E433 were subsequently included on the PSR-E443, but I'd have to do a voice comparison to verify.

Hi, though the reply is too late, still it might help.
I have recently bought a PSR E-453, and I used a PSR I-455 in the past as well. Things that PSR I-455 still excels in, are :
1. Better overall keybed feel (black keys)
2. Very much better Sitar voice samples, the ones loaded on E-453 are dull and squeaky, and nowhere near that of I-455. I do not understand why Yamaha changed the Sitar sample in newer PSR E series models.
3. Ultra wide stereo function present (Well, most of the Panel voices of E-453 have been stereo-sampled).
4. In the Pedal function, setting no. 4 stands for (Sostenut), which has been removed from E-453.
5. Freeze mode function (removed from E-453)
