RejZoR, 24 Apr 2020Ppl are forgetting that just throwing high end spec HW at the problem doesn't solve everything... moreI simply don't understand the idea of ahhhhhh, my phone is going to be updated for another 5 years were screamed by people even the ones with no knowledge of any updates on any platform.
Being updated to the latest OS does not always equal to the best performance, and security can still be patched/updated without updating the OS itself.
Yes, being up to date is good. But it does not mean that the old software is bad.
RejZoR, 24 Apr 2020Ppl are forgetting that just throwing high end spec HW at the problem doesn't solve everything... moreThat has no sense. First you talk about be able to spend 1500 euros and then that you don't want. That is the purpose of buy a phone from Android. Better hardware at lower price. If you don't like the software or the updates that is another history. You are mixing different things to justify your Apple God policy, so you're giving yourself away. Well, stay happy with your stupid resolution. We will be equally happy too at the other side.
Whackcar, 24 Apr 2020People had stopped buying iPhone 8 due to it being a 3 year old phone. So Apple decided to re-... moreIt’s not only the SOC that makes it attractive. It’s also the best portrait and video camera on its category and a lot better than the iPhone 8 and the price is actually less than that of the iPhone 8. The 124 GB which is only $50 more than the base model makes it even more attractive. And they added one more gb of RAM. Plus the dual SIM card. So I can see a lot of significant changes compared to 8.
RejZoR, 24 Apr 2020Ppl are forgetting that just throwing high end spec HW at the problem doesn't solve everything... moreRejZoR is spot-on. The new SE is basically an updated 8. Newer SoC, updated camera taken from XR, and newer iOS. If you can afford the XR then get it; if not get whatever is left of the 8+ or the new SE.
iPhone SE 2020 on other hand doesn't really excel at anything, but users can rely on everything it offers. Display? It's good. Processor? It's good. Battery? It's good (for iPhone and iOS). Camera? It's good. Build and feel? It's good. Like MKBHD said, it's not gonna steal any crowns, but it's what people can always rely on and not breaking their bank while still avoiding idiocies of Android ecosystem. That's iPhone SE 2020. I know that unless Google sorts Android updating nonsense out, I'm sticking with iOS. It's just superior in this department. I'm still on iPhone XR and I love it.
Peachy001, 24 Apr 2020I think phone makers over think the need to be different. I think more manufacturers could do ... moreYou don't need to go bigger size to profit better the space of those big bezels without make them too thin... and offer a better and bigger display. You also don't need that huge circular capacitive fingerprint scanner, there are a lot more optimal shapes and smaller to put in a thinner bezel. But it's Apple, so forget it, 480 euros for a 4.7" display and 3-64GB is what you get, and upto 699 euros if you want the 256GB.
PartTimePhoner, 24 Apr 2020Something only apple can do. No one would go buy a SD865 powered S7 Edge I think phone makers over think the need to be different. I think more manufacturers could do this. The LG V30, that is a terrific device to hold. My Lumia 920, solid great looking device. The Lumia 1020. Be happy for any of them again, in terms of form factor. If each simply improved the battery, screen and internals, I'd have any of them. What tickles me is that Apple kept the screen size. Which, for me, makes it look poor. But, some will like the device. I'm pleased they "innovated" by not changing stuff, or going forever bigger. Hopefully the Android makers will take note.
G Force, 24 Apr 2020Where this phone is made?1. rehashed in USA
2. components purchased from around the world
3. assembled in China
4. exported around the world
SmartButCool, 24 Apr 2020Guys this is business we are talking. If apple can re launch a phone with new name and if peop... moreSmarter people will spend more for the iPhone XR/XS and 11 series, or flock to Android (with better specs) instead. iPhone SE is simply underwhelming.
Anonymous, 24 Apr 2020Do business with blind people that only buy the cheaper logo from X brand with zero knowledge ... moreLG is a bit understandable as their flagship cannot compete with the allure of Samsungs and Apples. Not to mention their past with software support and sellout youtube/reviewers who almost always lean toward samsung/apple.
Do business with blind people that only buy the cheaper logo from X brand with zero knowledge is so easy...Even if behind that you can smell a big strategy to fool people, and near a scam selling old junk at high price. Apple, HMD - Nokia, HTC, and who knows if soon even LG trademark with the Velvet...
Anonymous, 24 Apr 2020Almost anything except the motherboard, battery, and rear camera, from the video at least. the battery is the same, except the battery's connector
People had stopped buying iPhone 8 due to it being a 3 year old phone. So Apple decided to re-release the same phone with a new name & just replaced the SoC to make it attractive, and now it's gonna sell like hotcakes.
Apple didn't become the first trillion dollar company just like that. They know how to do business.
Guys this is business we are talking. If apple can re launch a phone with new name and if people are buying they would do it. that's how they make money. They are a corporate not a charity. In my opinion this is one of the best business moves apple or any corporate company have done in this situation.
Iphone 8 is a 649USD phone when it launched. How to make same phone with better SOC for cheap? Use most of the parts is the only way. I don't see a problem with that.
This is not innovation. This is smart thinking. This phone will sell like hot cakes. Not only apple fans buy this. Most of the kids old people and people who don't care about specs but a reliable phone will see this as a only option on their budget.
So apple done it again. They shows us why they are trillion dollar company. They are smart.
PartTimePhoner, 24 Apr 2020Something only apple can do. No one would go buy a SD865 powered S7 Edge If i would buy a 500 euro phones then i would go with the S7 Edge cause of it's size with SD865 in it. But i dont like the edge model for the screen going over edge. Like i dont like any type of notch or holes in the screen. But i want to get a compact phone that will be at most 140mm tall. Sadly every phone now is 6.3-7 inch screen that are something 160-170mm tall and not pocket friendly
harianilchandran, 24 Apr 2020Most of the parts are recycled from iPhone 8. Camera is from XR. And the processor is of one g... moreThese phones you compare with it are tablet phones. Peaople will still buy the SE not cause they are not techies or kids or old people but cause they want a smaller phone that they can fit in there pocket And apple fanboys dont much care about the hardware on there phone. If it's new they only care that it gets 5 years of updates.
They just relaunched the 8 with SE name with left over parts stock
What a rip off......
G Force, 24 Apr 2020Where this phone is made?Shenzen, at the Foxconn factories, like all other iPhones.
