This past week, amid of the Coronavirus outbreak, people have started receiving notifications on their emails of the release of the new iPhone. The launch was subtle, probably for the reasons like the nature of the iPhone model itself. Hardware and software features are of the same of the past models, all hand picked and fitted into a smaller sized iPhone. While Apple, by reputation, is known for its luxurious prices, the price has come a surprise. In comparison to Apple’s competitors, SE is definitely the cheapest. It has been already discussed in the social media world that it is the best phone out there. Here’s why.

At $399 price point, you experience:
