Apple Made a Budget iPhone That Was Better Than Their Flagship

Well everyone, I wanted to take a step back a few years ago to 2016 when Apple actually created probably one of the best budget iPhones they've ever made! Now, with the iPhone SE third generation and iPhone SE second-generation, Apple really didn't do a crazy great job with those devices, and there were a lot of differences we could see between their flagships and their budget phones of that time, but with the first generation iPhone SE, I truly couldn’t find that many differences between this iPhone and the iPhone 6S of that time, were there differences? Of course, but they weren’t as massive as they are now (for example, when you compare the iPhone SE 3rd generation and the iPhone 13)

At the time of its release, this iPhone was for sale at $399, cheaper than what the iPhone SE 3 is for sale now, however, the iPhone SE was bringing the same exact chipset and RAM as the iPhone 6S Plus at the time, which was the flagship! This was one of my favorite things about this iPhone, however, there is something else that truly shocked me about this cheap iPhone, this device has actually held up better for the past few years more so than my iPhone 6S, that’s crazy! Who would have thought that the cheaper budget iPhone would give me a better experience than the more expensive iPhone at the time!

Overall, I believe Apple did a great job with the first generation iPhone SE, and I believe that these iPhones have actually been watered down quite a bit, what do you think?

That’s pretty much it! if you guys have any other questions let me know in the comment section as well, more important than everything else I love every single one of you, hopefully, I’ll catch you in the next article!
