Selling SE2 made from refurbrished 6, 6S, 7 and 8 devices were always apple speciality aôso they add their typical superexpensive pricing.
Nimble, 11 Oct 2019Oh really? ask Sony about the Battery life of their compact phonesAs a longtime user of the Compact series I can tell you that the only good thing about the Compact series is the battery life. It has a shitty display (not to mention it's only 720p), the camera is shitty, the phone is very thick and bulky for its screen size, and it's cubic design means it's uncomfortable to use. Unfortunately, the unoptimised nature of Android means that OEM can't make an Android phone as small as and as good as Apple's.
IMO, the SE is overrated, after an hour of maximum CPU load the phone's lowest temperature is 37.2 °C (99 °F) and the highest being 44.2 °C (112 F). That's hot, hotter than any other iPhone. The fact that it gets warm all over would be annoying.
Well, I'm using a Nokia Lumia 925 as a daily driver and the temperatures are even worse under an hours of maximum CPU load, lowest temperature - 32.1 °C (90 °F) which is actually pretty cool but the maximum is 47.0 °C (117 F). That's extremely hot, couldn't even hold the phone for 30 seconds. However, during normal use, it can get quite warm, but still acceptable for me. I was expecting worse to be honest. Going to use the 925 until December as a temporary phone.

So, it's a EUR 200 phone sold at EUR 500, with 2014 year's small battery and huge bezels? Got it.
The so called iPhone Â‘SE2Â’ is most probably coming between mid to late March 2020 with 64GB & 128GB storage option with a starting price of $349 to $399. It may also come in Midnight Green or the other new colours like Purple etc..
Anonymous, 11 Oct 2019I don't understand the SE2 rumours. Apple still builds and sells the 8 on as a current model;... moreIts all about the naming..
Now that XR becomes 11 (default)
X becomes 11 pro
Means that 8 (was default before) will become SE
I don't understand the SE2 rumours. Apple still builds and sells the 8 on as a current model; to make a cheaper version they would have to strip it down, not upgrade it with A13 etc.
Apple will release what ? A 500Â€ phone with the bezels of the iPhone 8 and a 4,7 screen ? Why ... We can buy iPhone 8 cheaper
They still has a lot of iPhone 8 chassis laying around in the warehouse
The move is good because compact phones are "endangered species" now. Only compact phone with flagship grade cpu is Samsung Galaxy S10e.
$499 or $599, whatever is the price, If apple still keeps the LCD display in 2019 and calls it - "This is the best LCD display on the planet", then its mocking its customers again.
In 2019, phones costing more $399 should offer oled panels whatever be the size, otherwise they are not worth it. Dark mode is of no use, no battery savings. Apple just wants to rip off its customer using same old phone parts and gimmicky marketing.

Think about that for a sec...
Which explains why for the multiple SKU'ed iPhone(s) 11 with the diff price points.
All I ever wanted is a notched all-screen iPhone SE2 regardless of what body it's in. Can't Apple retrofit the iPhone 8 display to look like iPhone X design?
Thick top and bottom bezels in Apple's eyes are dead.
Anonymous, 10 Oct 2019Maybe those copycats will copy this and actually put out compact phones. Not those tall, tr... moreExactly. If they want to copy Apple so much they should release some compact devices too... Phones are getting larger, but our hands aren't...
Anonymous, 10 Oct 2019Don't wait for it. Just buy one of many compact android phones and enjoy.Like what? I can't even think of one Android compact (I mean under 5") flagship device released within the last 2 years.
