Nick Tagataka, 04 May 2020It's hilarious that many of those in this website can be this negative towards this new iPhone... moremeh .. you ignored the stupid battey life on purpose , yes this phone is great but using the old iphone 8 case with same thickiness was the mistake , 1mm thicker and it would have taken at least 3000 mah battery and made us all happy
Rk100, 03 May 2020For future proofing the phone, so it can last years before needing to be replaced and since it... moredo you know how small 4.7 inch display is and it even come with a HD screen only this phone is nothing only a joke in 2020 (expect for its processor oc)
It's hilarious that many of those in this website can be this negative towards this new iPhone when in fact it currently has no competitions in the similar price segment (probably Pixel 4a will come close, but still not a direct competitor).
Let me tell you one thing - being a tech enthusiast and not looking at this product from average consumer perspective automatically disqualify you from criticising this product. This is a phone for an average Joe who:
-Would like to make a switch to Apple ecosystem but can't pay $1000+ to get an iPhone 11 Pro
-Needs a compact and long lasting device for their kids whose friends also use iDevices
-Wants to replace their old iPhones (8, 7, 6s, 6, 5s) but hate modern phone's form factor
-is an Android user but needs iDevice for some reasons e.g. App testing, for work.
Whining "BuT hD LcD dIsPlAY iS No gOoD in 2020" is pointless. The target demographic of iPhone SE won't give a damn, it's sharp enough when viewed from normal viewing distance. The same goes for the battery size and a single camera, people who are looking for this kind of product couldn't care less those stuffs as they won't spend their entire day playing 3D games or shooting photos. The camera is decent enough for casual shooting and the battery lasts a day with light to medium usage.
They just want a tiny iPhone that is affordable, durable and lasts for next 3 and 4 years, which it will if they replace the battery once or twice in its lifespan.. You don't find it attractive? Just shut up and walk away.
High Quality 720p screen?! Lol
Not even HD?! Come on Craple..you can do better!
It’s so sad
The four stars don't do this justice. This is the most revolutionary mid-ranger since the Nexus 5, and one of the most interesting offerings that ever came from Apple. Many from the Android crowd will be lured over to the Apple ecosystem due to this, especially as Android is at its worst. Sure, everyone is commenting on the bezels - if it wasn't for them this would likely be the best value smartphone in history and it would really cannibalize iPhone 11 sales, as it's otherwise a very similar phone.

Anonymous, 03 May 20201,821mAh battery in 2020,lolso you expect 2025 to have a 8000mah battery? what a joke
GSM arena reviewed this phone as a flagship and that’s not what it is, for it’s category, except in screen size, resolution and battery capacity, this phone is practically unmatched. Sometimes I wished people said the truth especially when it’s staring right in their face

If people can convince themselves that they dont need the latest most powerful desktop or laptop, they can do the same for the cell phone.
Most folks are not spec sheet sniffers nor have the means for $1000+ phones. I would wholeheartedly recommend this phone to them and they will be happier than ever.

vrvly, 01 May 2020Re-test after 2 weeks, just to be sure.I agree with you because after 3 cycles of charging the battery life's seem to improve. Usually that is when the battery is capable of peak preformance.

I would definitely recommend this to a lot of people who want to get a new iPhone for cheaper. But I agree with you on that I would rather get an Oneplus 7t or something similarly priced.
Anonymous, 02 May 2020Yep, Apple's phones are so well optimized compared to most Androids that those who have never ... moreAgreed, I bet 95% of the comments here have not ever owned and iPhone. Unlike android apple devs and the app devs for ios put a lot more effort into the apps unlike in android, yes the big companies like google might put a lot of effort but a lot of the smaller app companies don't put that much effort hence a lot of bugs.
Baradov, 03 May 2020Apple Are you kidding me.. are you trying to sell iPhone8 with different name? Lack of innova... moreChill it's just a refurbished iPhone with a better SoC. This isn't something the company are showing off as their new tech. Its just allow people who prefer the older design more to buy a new iPhone that will last long. As you can see apple didn't even have an announcement so it's not like they are showing off how 'cool' and 'innovative' it is. Anyways this phone is and iPhone 8, but cheaper and faster, like I said, just an refurbishment and recycling old parts.
kwisatz haderach, 03 May 2020Why do you need that absolute power if the display is so small? Do you play power intensive ga... moreFor future proofing the phone, so it can last years before needing to be replaced and since it uses the new beast of a SoC, apple can afford to give multiple ios updates for at least the next 4 or 5 years. Also the a13 preforms fanatically not only for gaming but daily usage, image processing, battery efficiency, etc.
Anonymous, 03 May 2020Because apple fan start to bragging it's the best phone in 2020 and how magical it is . Nope i... moreI disagree, i think that it's just android fans, more specifically, people who love xiaomi, oppo,realme etc. Basically any fan who like android phones from Chinese companies. I think that they are hating on it because there are 'better' android alternatives. Personally i think the SE 2020 is a great option, considering it's just an iPhone 8 but future proofed at a lower price. I don't see any apple fans boasting about how great this phone is because it isin't. You what is a great iPhone, the 11 trio, but this is just an iPhone at a lower cost. Not aimed at the Xioami nor realme, just a regular 'cheap' iPhone.
Goos, 03 May 2020A 1821 mAh battery and 3.5 hours screen on time in 2020 ?

for normal use (without tele and wide), the camera will slay most of sub-$300 budget phone thanks to apple tuning.
some of the smartphone at $400 bracket will be able to compete tough.
For the most part you pay for the apple name and mostly for the SoC which is on par with basically current flagships.
which are rather unfortunate considering this phone have sucky battery and 2+ hour to charge that sucky battery. Not sure whether the charging rate is enough to charge the phone while you game on it on powerbank.
while the current X-series is a full day battery phone, this is half day battery phone.
iPhone 8 is a good phone.
