Surely it's worth paying an extra £50 to get it brand new from John Lewis with a 2-year guarantee, plus free Apple TV+ for a year?

You'd be hard pushed to get much of this spec from an Android, as far as the CPU performance, wireless charging, high quality stereo speakers, camera. I'm sure you could buy an old Samsung or a new Redmi or something for £399 with slim bezels and a teardrop notch but it won't offer the same performance and size - or even long-term support.

Nor will it be an iPhone.

Believe it or not, Android and Apple devices are not necessarily seamlessly interchangable as some people believe. People accumulate purchases on both platforms and they also might actually quite using things like Airdrop, Handoff and SMS forwarding with their iPad or Mac, or they might have groups on iMessage that they like to chat with or make Facetime calls with. There's so much 'promiscuity' between Android brands - where you can happily throw your Samsung in the sea and go and buy a Xiaomi instead - that I think sometimes people overlook that people on iOS might actually get some value out of iOS features and historical purchases, which they might not have access to on Android.

iPhone like. I'll be going for the iPhone 12 mini, which will be a little bit small than the SE. Which was the direction I hoped they would take with the SE, as the size was the reason I bought the original SE.

I can’t size the storage size
I recently bought the 128gb for £375.5 (New) from Very with 20% discount voucher. Obviously that was just a one of voucher.

Edit.

I did give heat for this, as long as they are as new.

As I said it was just a one off voucher, which I threw away after purchase. it was 20% discount on none sale electrical items.

It was mailed to me from Very. If you haven't bought anything then you should still have the (Welcome) code which is 20% on a few things and 10% on electrical including sales items. I used my Welcome on the MacBook Pro which had already been reduced.

Keep your eyes pealed on eBay. Got a bargain last week
Not worth it samsung a51 or a71 or redmi note 9 pro or even Samsung s9 plus is much better choice than this little phone.
A tempting proposition for those still sporting their 6/6S. Heat.

It can be looked at as £50 extra for the extra year of warranty, already get a year warranty from Apple.

Apple TV+ is given for free with most Apple hardware purchases regardless of retailer.

Surely this will appeal to people who want a budget iphone, and a small one. People looking for this won't be comparing it to a Redmi Note 9 pro at 6.67 inch screen

iPhones get continued support for over 5 years. The SE may be well specced, but the screen is tiny. An alternative, slightly more expensive (but better imo) is the XR. Large screen, modern design, good camera and fast device. I picked up a used (very good condition) XR 128gb in black for £325.

I'd be surprised if you could get the Apple TV+ offer if the device has already been used by someone, but maybe you're right

I'd rather save £50 over new
I have seen so many of these as customer returns, why?
£50 almost gets the similar looking A3s. Yet £50 gets the better looking C17.
Sadly, no FHD screen on those two either.

What you say is undoubtably true for those who want a large screen with better camera however there are many iPhone 6S, 7 and 8 users who have held back on buying a new handset since their own device's still work, still get iOS updates and are, for them, a better size for their hands, handbags and pockets. They don't crave a better camera as they use their phones for mainly calls, texts, WhatsApp, casual Facebook & Instagram and maybe some music streaming; even if they had a fancy camera they would probably still just take 'snaps'. They will however like the new battery, the ongoing support, the familiarity of the Home button, and the faster than their old phones OS.

You need to activate Apple TV+. Purchasing the phone doesn’t automatically give you access to it.

Unless people are purchasing Apple hardware for a free year of Apple TV+ and are returning the hardware :/
Let me guess why they returned this?
No battery--check
Retro look - check

That is EXACTLY why I am still using my 6s. Its the perfect size, hand and pocket. Hardly use the camera, got an SLR for that. Love the 6s design, home button and headphone jack. Id take another one of these if I could, I use it primarily as an iPod.
Thanks for this @MrSwitch

Got it delivered today, it’s absolutely pristine with only 7 days off the Apple warranty and the Apple TV offer was in tact. All accessories were unused and the phone itself is in an unused condition.

Absolute bargain if you’re looking for a new SE.

The Asus Zenfone 4 Pro was £120(edit - price corrected)here and beat this most ways. It's main fault is the retro look, just like this.
I can not ever say I have been interested in wireless charging, it adding heat to the charging process, not something I risk.
Strangely enough , the Zenfone battery life is as below par as this.

Phones are throw items these days for many.
