You are obviously a smartphone enthusiast, there is no other reason anybody would believe it necessary to simultaneously own both an iPhone 13 Pro and a Galaxy S22 ultra, well other than being a professional tech reviewer of course. But the target audience for the SE is the exact opposite to you.

I have only stated what I believe to be is likely to be the target audience for this device.

        But again you make the assumption that every person who upgrades will want to do some research and shopping around first. And again I tell you that there are those for which this simply isn’t the case, they care nothing for smartphones in general. They have an iPhone they very much get on with, but it’s getting a bit long in the tooth, so they want something new but as similar as possible.

        And those such people are the reason the entire SE line was created.

          This phone reminds me of the Harley Davidson bike one of my friends had for a few years. He had to stop and fill up the tank every 70km, the motorcycle was 2x more expensive than any other brand but....
          It was a Harley Davidson and that was all that mattered.

              The only way that is possible is if the person is unaware of options, (and come on people around u always know when u want to upgrade ur smartphone so advice and options is certain)

                DaFink, 11 Apr 2022I don't understand, in one post you say this phone is ... moreThat's why I emphasized on being deep in the apple ecosystem(not caring about battery life), u can still find the SE(2020) in 2022 and the 11 is not super huge from the SE 2022

                      Retepevil, 12 Apr 2022iPhone SE buyer will never consider a Zenfone…idk how you can generalize such a subjective statement/PoV!!
                      As if you have all the data of all the SE owners or can somehow read their minds!!
                      What I stated was just the objective facts of how ZF8 is better in many tangible ways (the SE is also better in some, no ones denying that), and it ultimately depends on the specific person what they'll or wouldn't buy!

                            If you can't afford that then it's just better to get Android.

                                  You can buy it "brand new" through other retailers!

                                    Heck I'd go as far to say that even the S10e (2nd hand ofc) is a better deal overall (superior display, wider colour options, more and arguably similar cameras), 3.5mm HP jack, microSD slot, USB 3.1, and better battery life, etc!!
