iPhone SE has been officially launched by Oliz Store in Nepal for the price of Rs. 57,950 for 16GB whereas for 64GB users need to splash Rs.70,950. User can purchase the iPhone SE through their official website from coming May 19.
The phone features pretty impressive specs at smaller form factor and has borrowed similar design from its elder brother – iPhone 5s. Inside, the phone is powered by a powerful Apple A9 chipset as well as a 2GB of RAM alongside 13MP rear facing camera which is similar to it’s iPhone 6s. However the phone sports a 1.2MP front facing camera and has no pressure sensitive display in it – commonly known as 3D touch by Apple, which was present in iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.
Should you buy it?
Apple iPhone SE is an impressive smartphone with smaller form factor. If you are really not a big fan of phone (especially Android phone) with 5-inch screen or more and has more reason to shell out some cash, the iPhone SE is a right choice for you since most of the phone these days has neither of above mentioned features, combined in a smaller form factor.
If we go deep into this case, the iPhone SE features similar design from its 4 years old iPhone 5s and to be honest Apple really hasn’t innovated anything even after so many years. The price of Apple products in Nepal is usually high when compared to international market and the iPhone SE is no exception. The 16GB base model just seems ridiculous to us since there is no microSD card option and considering the size of apps these days, the phone will soon run out of storage. Of course, there is a 64GB option but it’s a whole new story for most of the users who are looking for a “budget friendly” Apple smartphone since it cost Rs.13,000 more than its 16GB model. With market flooded with lots of Android smartphones, users can get Nexus 6P, Samsung Galaxy S6 or hell even a LG G4 which are lot cheaper options and offers more value for your money.
