Chinese Criticize The New iPhone SE



Chinese people think that the price of iPhone SE 2020 is too expensive with an old, non-breakthrough technology.
The "iPhone SE is not worth buying" hashtag is a hotly debated topic on Weibo, China's largest social network, with more than 230 million readings and 49,000 discussions.

In the Chinese market, the iPhone SE 2020 is expected to cost from 3,299 yuan (11 million). Most users think that the price is too expensive, while Apple's new mobile phone has nothing breakthrough in both design and features.
"Currently, the top smartphones in China are priced from 3,000 to 4,000 yuan. While the iPhone SE is just a low-end model but has a high price," Sina technology page wrote.
 Hundreds of comments below all agree that after 4 years, the upgrade of iPhone SE no longer makes users excited. "This model looks exactly like the iPhone 8, apart from the A13 chip - a powerful processor but does not have advanced features to exploit performance," comments Ruo Luolan Nan.

Yoimo Yule account with more than 11 thousand followers also pointed out 5 reasons why iPhone SE is not worth buying. First, the device only uses a traditional 4.7-inch screen with two thick bezels, while most modern smartphones have a borderless design. Next, this model only has a 12-megapixel lens and a 7-megapixel selfie camera, no wide-angle lens, telephoto or macro camera. iPhone SE 2020 also omitted 3D Touch, Face ID.

 In addition, the iPhone SE only supports 5W charging with low battery capacity - this means users will return to the "hug the charger" all day. Finally, the biggest weakness is the lack of 5G support. "If in 2020, you bought a phone over 3,000 yuan without 5G, that's not a smart investment," the account wrote.
"If you need a new smartphone, you have better options from Android vendors. If you are an Apple fan, you can wait for the upcoming iPhone 12," Tian Xupan's comment received a lot. concurred by the user.
iPhone SE 2020 is essentially the previously rumored iPhone 9 model. This model was released half a month later than intended due to the influence of Covid-19 . This is also the first smartphone from Apple without any private launch event. 

The device silently appeared on the company's website on April 15.
The iPhone SE version 2020 is only one size with a 4.7 inch screen. Same design as iPhone 8, without a notch. 

It also does not have Face ID, using the familiar Touch ID fingerprint sensor. In return, Apple's cheap iPhone is powered by the same A13 Bionic chip as the iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max.
