But you’re only saving about £20-30, and no warranty. He’d rather have a new, clean phone I think.
Alternatives could be some good quality Xs refurbs? Similar real estate of the phone to SE but bigger screen. I think I seen a few for like £390 recently
Depends on the state of your current phone I guess. I’d wait if I could. I have an 11 though so I’m good. My Dad has a 2016 SE so will be getting the 2020 SE I think. He doesn’t like big phones, and the XS/Pro are overpriced for his use.
To be honest I would personally wait for new ones at this point or buy SE if you are happy with the screen size.
Tell me about it. iPhone 8 Plus (2017) is a year older than the XR (2018). The SE is a 2019 processor. Not sure I could go back to a screen like that though.
