SizN80, 26 Apr 2020SE will probably get over 5 years of major updates. The old SE is still getting OS updates. In reality no1 cares bout that,most of people change their phones in around 2-3y mark. Hell I change my car every 2 years. It only comes down to a resale value prolly.
Hahaha wtf scapple here we go again. Now the only one argument of ish*ps: we have 5 years of update but the fact is 80%~85% of apple users change theirs device after 2~3 years. What a nonsense

Additionally, and aside from the CPU/GPU superiority of the A13, if you want something that easily trumps this budget iPhone, here you go:
And if a long update cycle is your argument, Sony and OnePlus have got you covered.
Their official policy sticks to 2 years/3 years, but their actual update cycle is 3+ years for major updates.
To top it off, it doesn't even come close to matching the value you would get when Xiaomi release the Pocophone F1:
At the end of the day, this wasn't meant to compete with Android flagships. The only flagship part is its SoC.
But to be fair, it's a big move from Apple, which will hopefully push the prices back down for smartphones in general.
When there's competition we consumers benefit the most.
Tann Hauser, 26 Apr 2020So theyve just put a new SoC into a 3 yr old phone, and sell it to fans for 400.... Ingenious. Yes. They put a new SoC in a three year old phone and lowered the price. And it will get timely updates for the next 4 years at a minimum.

So it's not the camera from the XR? That explains the poor low light performance in the reviews.
imparanoic, 26 Apr 2020iphone se (2020) is designed to be unattractive to core iphone buyers, looks like iphone 6/7/8... morepeople keep glossing over app developers, having a cheap device with high end processing power is the ideal device, especially big companies where instead of buying let's say 10 11 pros, they can save quite a lot by getting the se for testing purposes
Hey come on. Just get any decent android phone and enjoy. You will get bigger and better display - better camera - longer battery life.
[deleted post]Why it is garbage?? I see it lacks 3.5mm jack, a minimum 2500mah battery battery could have been better and it has large bezels. Apart from these 3 shortcomings i don't see any issues with this phone. May be they are asking 400$. But considering BOM charges & the duration of the OS support it gets from Apple, i think price can be justified. May be overpriced by 50$.
I'm Not an apple fan though. Never owned it & used it.

Rendering a 1 and a half... moreIt's Not underclocked. The score was in the normal fluctuations of a Benchmark test. The one and only test that this rumor began, was one test that gave 5% less performance to the regular Iphone 11! Only. one. test....
If you take into consideration the 1GB less Ram (which means 25% less bandwidth) in comparison to the normal iPhone 11 (3 vs 4GB), the score was expected to be slightly bit lower.
If you search for Benchmarks for the last SD855 SoCs from the last year, you will see way bigger fluctuations (even up to 10%) between smartphones with SD855. Even, if devices where built by the same manufacturer.
i would buy this shit if it was 8+ and it was 300 usd ... but this small body and bigger price and trash app store .. sry apple you cant trick me to come

Ank, 26 Apr 2020This phone is the most Apple thing I have seen so far. Expect high revenue from low effort phone That's fine as long as their main is double

[deleted post]it is a pity no one cares buddy
as they deliver good qualities
Some people were saying it has the XR's camera, well now they know it's the same camera as is in the iPhone 8 and it's the A13 post-processing that makes the photos look better. Apple basically swapped in a new processor like people routinely swap out processors in intel and AMD motherboards.
