What a huge disappointment Apple!
The world which loves the original SE loves it for its size. What did it take to make a phone in the same size but use the Apple X screen format to increase the screen size??!!
SE users would’ve switched to the 8 or even the 7 or 6 if we wanted that size.
I was looking forward to a smart decision by Apple on the SE 2 but now I’ll stick to my SE till it dies.
For rest of the world Apple had launched all 3 model but in India, they had launched only base model of 64GB for INR 42500. Almost $555. Android phones with 64GB storage are available for $200-$300. They are wise enough not to launch other models as nobody wants to pay INR10000 more for each extra storage model. Base model price is already to high for us.
Dobridin, 15 Apr 2020Pretty solid offer from apple I think. Never have been a fan to the brand but with this they s... moreUS prices are listed without taxes. In the US the taxes vary per state and city, hence their list prices are always exclusive of taxes. For Europe, prices always have to include taxes. In Germany for example it’s 19% VAT, hence the difference plus a few dollars exchange rate buffer. It’s not that much more expensive.
Anonymous, 15 Apr 2020Oh ok so in America 128gb is 450 and in france 529 euro . And 529 euro is 588 dollars . it is the same here in Manila.
The 256 GB variant is 549 USD = 27,800+ in Php
Check out the price of the 64GB here in the Philippines in pesos, it is 26,490 according to Apple PH website.
Anonymous, 15 Apr 2020do you realize how far we are still for making 5g practical and viable?Very Far away. I was Praising my coworker for having the new Galaxy phone with 5G on T-Mobile. He only got 10Mbps up on 5G while I got 6Mbps on T-Mobile's LTE. I was not yet impressed. Reminded me of when AT&T rolled out LTE. was not impressed until about a year later.
P650SE, 15 Apr 2020Pixel 4a is going to look like an absolute joke compared to this. Apple A13 destroys Snapdrago... moreIf anything this is going to help pixel 4a. It'll have modern design, better oled screen, headphone jack, night sight and mostly better battery life. People in this price range doesn't care about soc, otherwise nobody would have bought older iphones and pixel 3a's
the price will destroy all the mid range phone since it cpu is the current iphone flagship, the design and materials is flagship a couple of years ago, but who cares the price is the best, you can have an iphone with just $400 with current cpu but old design.
In terms of raw power, this device can easily kill flagships, not just mid-rangers, but the outdated design is still a factor in the age of almost notch-less/bezel-less phones. Good move from apple, though, especially against samsung's poor A series
Us pricing is good. Apple destroyed pixel phones and most of the midrangers. This phone has everything you can need.
Not a bad value for american market, if you really want iphone, its not that bad. But for the rest of the world, and especially android users this is hot garbage. Iphone 8 already was looking outdated when it came out..
One thing i wish android midrangers would copy however is wireless charging.
V, 15 Apr 2020Why the pricing is different in EU?2 words: import taxes :P
Janssen , 15 Apr 2020Have you ever looked by your own two eyes this 720p apple's iPhone LCD? If not please do look ... moreDuh 720p is garbage. Everyone knows that, but on 4.7 inch screen size, many won't notice much of a difference.
L, 15 Apr 2020Iphone is much more secure than any android device except huawei which is hate target in USA.Every device out of the box is less secure, irrespective of the OS.
Atleast on Android, you can take security in your own hands and make the phone more secure. No such provision on iOS. It's truly handicapped by all means.
MagicMonkeyBoy, 15 Apr 2020Nice to see Apple finally bring there prices further down... Not a bad phone. But we all know ... moreExactly, the screen size is just too small.
Had it been 5.5 inches, it would have sold like hotcakes and could have made certain Android users switch.
Although this will sell just fine.
Pretty solid offer from apple I think. Never have been a fan to the brand but with this they step up the game. Only thing I dont like is the price difference. There is more then 25 percent diference between usa and europe and I dont think thats fаre. I pointed out several times this days that with easter promo you can get OnePlus 7T dor the same price in europe that for me is a better phone(bigger oled screen, fast charging in the box, more modern design, perfect software, comparable cameras). So because I am an android fan I would go this way. But if I had iPhone 8 or older this is the bargain of the century
