Jumping from an iPhone 8 to the iPhone SE may not seem like that big of a change. Let’s check out whether or not to think it’s genuinely worth the upgrade. First off let’s talk about price as we all know the new iPhone SE retails for 399 dollars while it is the cheapest iPhone Apple offers right now by a significant margin. Even at that price, it is far and away from the best value iPhone, Apple has ever offered. The iPhone 8 sold for $699 when it first launched in 2017 a year later it dropped to $599 and by 2019 Apple was selling it for $449. If you bought an iPhone 8 at any point over the last three years you paid quite a bit more than what the iPhone SE sells for today.
The iPhone 8 started as a flagship device and the iPhone SE is not really a flagship device. iPhone SE is specifically for the people who want this kind of setup if you have an iPhone XR, for example, you probably wouldn’t replace it with an iPhone SE if you have a current iPhone 11 obviously.
The iPhone SE 2020 has two major things number one being the price for a starting price of $599. You cannot find any other iPhone that was made this year for around that price point.
The second thing that’s great about this phone is Apple giving it support just like the previous iPhone has support for the next couple of years, so you will always have the latest FaceTime options and the latest software upgrades.
This phone takes you back to the days of the older phones because there’s a bezel on the top and the bottom and it’s really big and the screen itself is really small and the resolution is also very small.
The battery life is not as stellar as we’re used to nowadays with all the flagships lasting you well over a day.
Somebody who needs a phone temporarily to hold you over until you can get the next flagship this is the phone for you. If you are somebody who just needs to wants an iPhone for cheap that will not slow down for the next couple of years then this might be the phone for you.
