iPhone SE Price vs iPhone XR Price
As you would have guessed by now, both these phones are fairly similar except in ways that are more subjective in nature — such as the full-screen notched design of the iPhone XR. If I had to choose, I would definitely go with the iPhone XR purely because the design isn’t outdated, and if I’m spending so much money on a phone, I want it to look, well… not old.
It’s also annoying that the iPhone SE’s price in India is Rs. 42,500 for the base 64GB variant. Had the iPhone SE been priced around Rs. 30,000 to Rs. 35,000 (which is what it should’ve been, based on the US price), the iPhone SE would’ve been unbeatable, even in comparison to a lot of Android smartphones out there.
Right now, you can get the 64GB iPhone XR for around Rs. 45,000 usually. Sometimes that goes up to around Rs. 48,000 and sometimes it goes down to around Rs. 43,000. It just doesn’t seem like the iPhone SE is offering enough in terms of internal hardware to justify a price point like that with a design that’s 3 years old at the very least.
Obviously, it all boils down to your personal preference, which is why I have explained every thing with so much detail in this article. However, if you were to ask my opinion, I would say you should go for the iPhone XR. It looks better, it will offer the same real-world performance, and will easily last another 3 years without a hassle.
