Even the basic vanilla iphone 12 will be priced 650$.
That's more than 1.625 times the price of basic SE2!

For that price, u better buy Any flagship-killer Android which have several times battery longevity, 2times display resolution (QHD), better Audio quality, expandable storage, as well as dual SIMs!
yet, you still have some change even after buying it, unlike iphone 12 where u have to buy the charger SEPARATELY!

With a 4.7" screen and small battery it looks like it was designed as a replacement for the iPhone 4 fans.

Anonymous, 15 Aug 2020Conclusion: Phone for kids. :DDDDDApple deliberately designed the se unattractive or so 2016 so it won't attract kids or youth or the young market, elders will like this though, it's the sole purpose of using a 4 year old design for s fashionable phone as it's purpose to get the more fashion aware to purchase the more expensive iPhone 11

people here mostly are some obsessed people and victim of years and years of android/samsung marketing.
most of people that i know, went to apple and never looked back.
now i know only some kids and some people that can't afford apple still on android

YouNite., 16 Jun 2020Oh yay. We have 2 sides of people here, people who like the... moreTotally agree. Also, if one needs a good compact phone I would go for S10e or just wait for iPhone 12 which solves all the problems you mentioned (bad LCD low res display, very weak battery, lack of wide angle and night modus in camera). It will be a bit more expensive, but I am sure it is worth the difference, after all people don't get a new phone every month. With iPhone 12 an average use is good to go at least three years.

Anonymous, 27 Jun 2020I'll advise you to wait for the iphone 12, almost the same ... moreExatly, I would totally wait for iPhone 12. Especially because of the bigger OLED screen with higher resolution, bigger battery and the wide angle camera & night mode, which are totally worth the 200 bucks extra.

How about iPhone SE3 with iPhone SE2 in body but with both Face ID (in Notch) and Touch ID (in Home Key). For the full screen, the lower part of screen can be mistouched sometime, so it is better to keep the SE2's Home key design but upgrade with hold for Home, tap for Back, swipe for Tasks as those more useful Andriod multi-functional Home key years ago. The upper part is different from SE2 but use the mature 11's notch.
So this blending design with a screen of Super Retina 1016x2068 LCD or OLED screen (~442ppi) and screen-to-body ration is about 75%.
And the screen is 5.3" in size, just match SE3 rather than 5.4" of iPhone 12.
Regretly, picture can't be shown here. But as a many year Andriod user and iPhone SE2 user, there are reasons for this blending design.

its a great value phone. i dont have any issues regarding the battery life. i'm a regular average user, so far its been two months since i've started using it, and it feels great

  • jimboe

only bad thing is poor battery life thats a huge draw back for me. my old samsung s7 has 3 hrs more battery life. :(

Cool

After using Android for 10 years and also Windows Phone, when the latter ended, I decided to give Apple a try and bought the original SE from 2016.

I noticed there were less customisation options than Android, but the phone is of the highest build quality and it just works, all of the time, unlike so many Samsung, Acer, Android issues I had over the years.

And the updates still keep coming on a phone that was released more than 4 years ago with iOS 9 and now it is running on iOS 13.5.

But the most important for me is that iOS is much more secure Android and the App store is properly checked unlike Google Play store here many malware apps entered.

I was so impressed with the SE that I bought an iPhone 6s and use the old SE as a spare phone when travelling with local SIMs and for GPS navigation.

Now the new SE is the size of my 6s and the insides of the 11, what a superb combination. And for an amazing price. I'd be crazy to return to Andoid for all the above reasons!

Bilugi00, 18 May 2020As for as I am saying that I will buy one plus 7 Pro with a... moreYou do know ram doesn't really matter on iOS? Right? iOS isn't as resource intensive as Android, meaning they don't actually need that much ram. A 3gb or 4gb ram iPhone can compete with a Android device with double or triple the RAM.

Jonirob why, 22 May 2020Hello everyone. I know that we all are tech lovers. We can... more10000000%, agree with you there. People need to understand apple doesn't make phones for everyone, it's only for , like you said 10-15% of the market. They don't care if you would rather android, if their products sell and the users like it ( not people who THINK it's a bad device, I mean an actual user), then apple are happy. So what is Xiaomi is cheap but has a big battery and 10x zoom, it doesn't concern people who want a reliable phone that lasts years, unlike with Xiaomi's devices. I doubt Apple cares about any of the Chinese brands expect Oneplus and Huawei. And obviously Samsung.

Not convincing at al, 27 Jun 2020Sorry, but you sound like an Apple fanboy trying to sell th... moreAnd why does it matter that he/she is a fan of apple. Let people be happy with their products. Maybe they liked so much they think more people should buy, shouldn't mean anything to you.
