iPhone SE Price Drop $199.99 Deal

The iPhone SE has never been this cheap

The iPhone SE has never been this cheap

We hardly talk about iPhone SE anymore, largely because that other 2016 iPhone is more interesting. But the new 4-inch iPhone is a best-selling smartphone, and a great purchase considering its entry price. At $399, it was already the cheapest new iPhone you can buy.

But if that’s not good enough for you, then how about paying just half of that $399 for a brand new iPhone SE?

iPhone SE demand continues to outstrip supply months after launch

After failing to make a significant impact with the iPhone 5c back in 2013, Apple has a bonafide hit on its hands with this year’s iPhone SE. Nearly three months after the phone’s launch, retailers are still struggling to keep up with demand.

Watch 10 years of iPhone evolution flash before your eyes

Apple revolutionized the smartphone business 10 years ago when it introduced the first iPhone. After its first big launch in 2007, Apple has since launched 13 distinct iPhone models. Here they are, in chronological order: iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, and iPhone SE . And now one YouTube user has created a massive performance comparison featuring all models, from the old iPhone to the recently released iPhone SE. More →

Is Apple’s new iPhone SE making the impossible possible?

Is Apple’s new iPhone SE making the impossible possible?

At the high end of the smartphone market, Apple and Samsung continue to dominate as other global brands fight for scraps. This has been the case in the industry for quite some time now, and at this rate it’s not likely to change anytime soon. At the low end of the market though, something curious has happened over the past few years. A wave of China-based companies has stormed the market with surprisingly capable smartphones being sold at incredibly low prices, and they have stolen a massive chunk of business from established players like Samsung, LG and HTC.

Of all the companies analysts thought might be able to fight back against these budget brands, Apple certainly wasn’t at the top of any lists — but it looks like that’s exactly what’s happening. More →

Galaxy S7 HTC 10 iPhone 6s

Even the old iPhone 6 is better than the HTC 10 or Galaxy S7 if you want true gaming power

Even the old iPhone 6 is better than the HTC 10 or Galaxy S7 if you want true gaming power

Praised in reviews, the Galaxy S7 and HTC 10 are the top Android handsets you can buy this year. But if you’re a mobile gaming addict, then these devices aren’t the smartphones you are looking for. Instead, you should be picking up an iPhone 6s, iPhone SE or even the much older iPhone 6. More →

iPhone SE Vs iPhone 6 Plus Comparison

What happens when an iPhone 6 Plus owner switches to the tiny iPhone SE

What happens when an iPhone 6 Plus owner switches to the tiny iPhone SE

For a lot of people, the iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6s Plus are just too big, which is one reason why it decided to release its new 4-inch iPhone SE. One iPhone 6 Plus owner recently tried switching to the smaller iPhone SE and posted about their experience on Reddit so that people could get a better idea of just how jarring it is to go from using a 5.5-inch phablet to using a tiny 4-inch iPhone. In short, they just can’t live with a tiny iPhone any longer. More →

iPhone SE Launch

Why did Apple launch the iPhone SE with embarrassingly low supply?

Why did Apple launch the iPhone SE with embarrassingly low supply?

It’s no secret that iPhone sales in 2016 may take a dip for the first time in history. Hardly a point of speculation, even Tim Cook conceded this point during an earnings conference call this past January. It’s also no secret that the recently launched iPhone SE, for many users, has been a long time coming. While Apple’s iPhone 6 and 6s models have sold remarkably well, the reality is that large swaths of users simply prefer a smaller form factor. Indeed, Apple noted not too long ago that it sold more than 30 million 4-inch iPhone models in 2015 alone.

All that said, the iPhone SE was seemingly well positioned to help bolster iPhone sales during traditionally lower volume sales months. And yet, for reasons that aren’t exactly clear, Apple launched the iPhone SE with embarrassingly low supply.

iPhone 6 SE Custom Build

Apple wouldn’t make a redesigned 4-inch iPhone, so these guys built the ‘iPhone 6 SE’

Apple wouldn’t make a redesigned 4-inch iPhone, so these guys built the ‘iPhone 6 SE’

Although the iPhone SE is on track to be yet another massive hit for Apple, it’s not what every potential buyer was looking for out of a new 4-inch device. The iPhone SE turned out to be little more than an iPhone 5s with upgraded internal components, lacking any distinct design alterations.

It’s hard to be overly enthusiastic about a new phone that looks like an old phone, but that’s exactly why Computer Bild’s iPhone 6 SE is such a fascinating project.

Think the iPhone SE is a flop? Think again

Earlier this week, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggested that sales for Apple’s new iPhone SE were off to a “lackluster” start. While Ming-Chi Kuo is one of the top Apple analysts around, he might not be right about this particular piece of information. AppleInsider points out that the new iPhone is completely sold out in many stores and shipping times for orders of the device have been pushed back to at least a couple of weeks.

16GB iPhone SE Storage

These are the tools you need to live with a 16GB iPhone

These are the tools you need to live with a 16GB iPhone

Apple shocked fans with the iPhone SE’s low $399 price tag. For just $400 you get a compact phone that’s as powerful as the iPhone 6s and is superior to mid-range Android alternatives. The downside of buying this device is the limited storage that comes with the cheapest new iPhone. You still get just 16GB of memory to play with, which is a woefully small amount of storage in this day and age. However, there are ways of making the most of that limited storage without ever running out of space, which make the $399 iPhone SE a steal. More →

Android vendors have another reason to fear the iPhone SE

Android vendors have another reason to fear the iPhone SE

Apple last week released the iPhone SE, which is largely an iPhone 6s that’s packed into a compact iPhone 5s design and that sports a price that’s characteristic to mid-range to high-end Android handsets. In other words, Apple finally delivered the one iPhone model many have asked for: an affordable yet powerful device that doesn’t have a huge screen.

But that’s not the only reason for Android device makers to worry. The iPhone SE spells trouble from a different point of view. More →

iPhone SE seen getting off to a ‘lackluster’ start

iPhone SE seen getting off to a ‘lackluster’ start

Apple’s recently released iPhone SE was supposed to be Apple’s saving grace, a mid-year release designed to help keep iPhone sales somewhat afloat ahead of the iPhone 7. Packed with the same advanced features as the iPhone 6s and affordably priced, it was widely assumed that the iPhone SE would get off to a strong start following its debut on store shelves this past Thursday.

Now it’s no secret that Apple, whenever it records impressive sales figures, likes to put out a press release boasting of how consumers simply can’t get enough of the company’s latest and greatest product. But with the iPhone SE, Monday morning came and went and we haven’t heard a peep from Apple about sales or even demand.
