Lol, 21 Mar 2016Tim is surely weeping and drying his eyes with 100$ bills now because of your comment.He may as well be, but Cook is killing effectively the vision, created by Steve Jobs.
and this is a bulllllshit. not many ppl in Europe will buy the new ipad nor iphone. not for that price
Kettzy, 22 Mar 2016Lol.. Come on... So, processor, that takes up absolutely similar (physical) space on the insid... moreWhich isn't that different to the Sony "compact" designs or Samsung "Minis" (although they always used to be worse than their larger counterparts stat wise) or a number of other manufacturers. There's a market for smaller phones with comparable stats to flagships regardless of which OS or manufatcurer. This device exists to fill a niche, and fill it it does.
Anonymous, 22 Mar 2016except all the parts that are from the 6S, you meanLol.. Come on... So, processor, that takes up absolutely similar (physical) space on the inside has been replaced (ram is still same, 1 GB). The 12MP camera (without OIS) is replaced with 8MP? Wow, what a change.
Came back to typical mediocre 640x1136 display resolution (basically, body and screen and all other internals, used as they are).
So, they're basically doing no extra research work and yet charging the age old device with hefty price with new name. Really?
They keep proving that iPhone is just for those who like to simply boast about wasting their money on mediocre gadget that can basically be only used as nothing but a "fashion" accessory.
The word Fragmentation dreaded by Steve Jobs, going to haunt Apple now!

tell whats your income compared to europe
because i see you are giving really a... moreOh don't worry about me, I'm fine here and there.
More interesting though is the average salery. "Numbeo" is nice to compare different citys and what does it say?
"You would need around 3,824.18Â€ (4,298.76$) in Munich to maintain the same standard of life that you can have with 8,100.00$ in San Francisco, CA (assuming you rent in both cities). This calculation uses our Consumer Prices Including Rent Index to compare cost of living. This assumes net earnings (after income tax)."
That's just copy and past, they list it in detail, just try it on your own.
And they have the average monthly salery after tax as well, it's 3000 dollar in Munich compared to 4000 dollar in San Francisco.
So you get one third more but you have to pay twice as much, where do you have more money left for your iPhone with the same job?
It's not getting better if you move to cheaper areas, Oakland, similar size than Munich as well.
"You would need around 3,855.10Â€ (4,333.53$) in Munich to maintain the same standard of life that you can have with 6,100.00$ in Oakland, CA (assuming you rent in both cities). This calculation uses our Consumer Prices Including Rent Index to compare cost of living. This assumes net earnings (after income tax)."
Sounds better? Maybe as long until you compare the average salery, because this time it's the same.
And that was with the average income. Since there are more really rich people in America, there have to be more really pour as well to get the same average, keep that in mind.
So, basically, they used all the unused parts of iPhone 5S to call it SE and bring back into the market. It still is extremely overpriced for what it offers. Absolutely no point wasting money on something which can only be used to boast your money wasting capabilities.

tell whats your income compared to europe
because i see you are giving really accurate examples but
must have balls to pay 2500$ rent with average 1.2k euro income
16GB iPhone SE, priced at $299 in the US.
64GB iPhone SE, priced at $449 in the US.
I think this is the rightness price for "iPhone SE".
5s cost 350 euro SE cost ~490 euro phone body is absolute same ....
let me think a little....
apple with huge cash in the bank simply implys sell euro buy usd
probably should have written this for a forex website chat , this comment
harlekkin, 22 Mar 2016There's also a huge difference between living in the city or the country.
Like I said, som... moreI was comparing a 60 thousand ppl town in the bay area 2015/2016 with a 100 thousands population town in Bavaria right next to a 500 thousands town and some more smaller towns in 2014/2015, population density wise that's pretty similar.
And with a minimum wage of 8,50 per hour you probably don't work a lot to get a 900 salery. If you work part time, you are probably homeless in this area because there is no, really no place where you can life for less than 1000 per month. The minimum wage here is pretty similar to Germany btw. The homeless per citizen count of this area is 10 times as high compared to Hamburg in Germany for example and even higher if you compare it with Bavarian citys.
If your salary is 900-1500, you are maybe a student? Fine, so just be happy about your free education. The state university of Berkeley near Oakland (a town that has more homicides per year than whole Germany, nice place to live ;) ) costs around 15 thousands per year. That's a cheap one because it's not private. If you have more money you can for sure try to apply in Stanford right around the corner, but that'll cost you three times as much.
And for sure you cannot pay for that so keep in mind, whatever salery you will get when you have your real job, you have to pay your student loans back.
But yes, to bring it to a point, I'm sick of Europeans, especially Germans complaining all the time. Do some traveling, visit other countries, you guys are living the dream, it cannot get any easier in 2016 to have a SAVE good life than jn Germany. If anyone should complain about what's going on in the world, it's not the Germans for sure. No kidding.
So just pay those few extra bucks, of go with an Android phone, those are cheaper and also pretty good.
All Apple prices are so much more in the UK. Simply due to people who buy in paying more for exactly the same thing, as with cameras, where there is what amounts to a tradition os brits paying in pounds what yanks do in dollars. Plus, in the US , Nikon, for example give free 5 year warranty with new equipment whereas here we get only a year- half the EU minimum for electrical goods.
$400+tax in US?.. Specs are very nice since I prefer 4-4.5" phones for easy portability but no way, I can spend $450 for a phone..

Like I said, someone earning EUR2500 in the city vs. EUR900 in the country can perhaps afford a device of this price, but it seems unreasonably high priced.
