The New IPHONE SE (2020) Shows Apple's Iphones Have Been Over Priced All Along by Solidtruth(m): 3:41pm On Apr 16, 2020
Following Apple’s announcement yesterday of the new iPhone SE, it's likely there are a lot of iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 owners asking themselves if there phone is really worth. Starting at $400 (about 155,000 naira) for the 64GB model, you get the company's most recent A13 Bionic processor in what is essentially the body of an iPhone 8. As such, it comes with pre-iPhone X standbys like a 4.7-inch LCD Retina display, Touch ID and an aluminum outer shell. For taking photos, the iPhone SE includes a single 12-megapixel rear camera and a 7-megapixel front-facing camera for selfies. Besides additional telephoto and wide-angle lenses, what you'll forfeit by choosing the SE instead over the iPhone 11 or 11 Pro is Night mode for improved low-light photography.
Looking at other parts of the iPhone SE spec sheet, what's notable here is that Apple also didn't cut corners in a lot of places Android manufacturers typically do. With the SE, you get a device that includes wireless charging and an IP67 rating for water and dust-resistance.
Moreover, while it might not have a high-resolution OLED display like the iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, it's hardly a cheap screen either; you still get access to Apple's True Tone technology and DCI-P3 wide color gamut support.
Apple could have also gone back to some of its worst past inclinations and made the higher storage configurations significantly more expensive, but it showed restraint there too. If you want the 128GB model, it's only $49 (about 19,000 naira) extra. Meanwhile, you'll pay a $149 (about 58,000 naira) premium to own the 256GB model.
At least on paper, the new iPhone SE doesn't feel like it will be a significant step down from its more expensive siblings. More so than any other iPhone before it, the SE shows Apple's other iPhones cost too much. Yes, there's something to be said about the fact the SE won't have the best camera setup, the most modern display or the biggest battery. But it also makes a compelling argument that those things shouldn't cost $1,000 (about 386,000 naira) or more.
To some extent, all manufacturers are guilty of pricing their high-end devices higher than they should, but Apple has consistently been among the worst offenders.

iphone 8,8+ is $400-450 at apple store, all the did is update the internals and camera, gave it A13 bionic and cancel iphone 8,8+ and you think it'll be lesser than iphone 8?

PS nothing is overpriced unless it is an essential good like food and drug , if you don't like it look the otherway and stop unnecessary complains

Is it that you lack cognitive comprehension or you just didn't read the post at all angry
where in the post is it stated that it cost $149. Go back and read it again (that is if you did before) but this time slowly.

You should understand the reason behind this phone. This is not a flagship iPhone. They only made this phone to target the mid-range market. That is: people who cannot afford to buy iPhone 11 Pro Max or people who don’t like the big size or heavy specs on Apple’s flagship phones. It’s just a mid-range phone for people who want something simple and not all about the tech and specs. A new flagship iPhone (iPhone 12) will be released in September. This iPhone SE is a budget phone targeting a specific market. My mum would prefer a phone like this over iPhone 11 Pro Max, for instance.
