Bwuuahahahahahahaaa...jokes on you Apple. That made my day and confirmed, that under no circumstances I will migrate to iOS and (Cr)Apple.
This is a really sad move from apple, I was so excited and ready to order the iPhone SE when it came out, but not now, they are never getting a single penny out of me again, they make a iPhone which is exactly the same as one which was released nearly 5 years ago and call it the next big thing, and yes I know it has had a huge revamp on the inside but if I buy a new phone I want it to look.
After never owning a android phone I have thought to myself why, and I thought i'd give it a try, I have just ordered my new samsung galaxy and cannot wait to receive it, its a s6 and has some great specs for a extra £60 and I am getting a larger screen.
So thank you apple, thank you for making me come to my senses.
nearly 500 Euro for that phone?
You can get a iPhone 6 for the same price
Shameless apple. How dare they bring out something like this for such a ridiculous price? Someone who will buy this must be an extreme apple fan, otherwise you will buy a much better alternative for a lower price.
The UK prices are shockingly expensive!! Come on apple stop ripping us off
Solun1, 21 Mar 2016The US has low or no taxes on electronics so it's always cheaper. The only reason really is th... moreI don't see this done on other phones so it's not just only in eu.
Manufacturer needs to pay that tax and not the customer and the price should be fair for everyone at the same level. This is bs if you need to pay more just cause you don't live in US.
Too much for an old looking phone with a new chip and upgraded camera. Not a good idea Apple.
Nobody in their right mind would buy the SE over the 6 since they are priced almost the same in Europe.
Any device running the Apple A9 for 399$ is a steal. I get that it's a 4.0" phone and everything but that spec sheet is great for that price, especially for iOS faithfuls. The SE will do really well.
Mobilemaster, 21 Mar 2016Well that is not fair! USA prices are way lower.The US has low or no taxes on electronics so it's always cheaper. The only reason really is the taxes. Talk to your government about that, not to the manufacturer.
This Apple presentation was a joke,
3 years old iphone 5 with new chipset...
Budget phone of apple.....what a joke...they really want to snatch every penny from our pocket. sorry apple I m not falling for that and even your upcoming mean games
considering gema fees in germany. the higher taxes and that the taxes in europe are includet in the price, in the usa you have to pay sales tax on top of it, the difference is not that big anymore. So 489 minus sales tax is 410, minus gema fee is 400.
so its basically the same in euro than it is in dollar, with an almost equal value from dollar to euro is the price resonable
