Just look at the Redmi Note 10 Pro, A52 5G and Nord 2. Does a single one of them have a small battery with slow charging? or a low-res LCD screen, let alone 60Hz? or a single camera? or huuge bezels? Redmi and Samsung even have a headphone jack, would ya look at that.
The choices that went into making these androids are just better. Instead of putting in unecessary features like a superfast chip, or a glass back, or wireless charging, or full ip rating, they decided to focus on important stuff like battery, display and camera.

actually flattening, because screen sizes have reached peak size, as now if they are any bigger, they will not even fit in our hands! Like, literally, they'll just fall out of our hands and onto the floor 😂

they are still selling every available stock of the current se 2020 here, so i doubt it, unless its cheaper to manufacture with newer internals

If they can make mini battery ok why not this?

Good

Anonymous, 09 Oct 2021This would certainly take sales away from the iPhone 13.It won't. The iphone 13 have better display and camera. The iphone 13 Pro an dpro max have 5 core gpu instead of 4 core. And sole peopl might want to buy the decently compact iPhone 23 if the rgoimg for iPhone since se one is wayy to small esp with omega bezels

lol that means the battery is going to be shitty again 😂
why not use the XR's or XS body and slap on some touch ID

Look, so we need something OG and different at the same time with iPhone SE lineups. So I feel they should go for some attempt where they can use the XR model design but use touch ID and Face ID, since users have been waiting really long for both of them, and should also give some handy design and shouldn't be a glass back.

They should atleast put the design of iPhone 8 plus and a bigger battery as compared to iPhone SE 2020.

Logic, 08 Oct 2021SE3 will still use the IP8 design to distance itself from t... morethat is the point, mini has not sold at all and they have plenty of IP 10,11 and 12 parts to spend

Anonymous, 09 Oct 2021why crapple? I have been enjoying my iPhone SE 2 way better... moreExactly except battery ..

Hmmm. Mixed feelings about this one. This design should be retired by now, but I understand that using the notched-iPhone X design would cannibalize iPhone 13 sales. If they improve battery capacity/life, add 5G and keep the price at 399$, it's still a compelling offering, but a little disappointing nonetheless.

Even if the design still remains the same (has the same design as iPhone 6 from 7 years ago), they just have to add a bigger battery and it would be fine. If they can add a 5G chip in there, why can't they add a bigger battery?
