    There's rumours of a ~$600 iPhone 'SE2' being launched in March. Although we've had these rumours for few years now, momentum seems to be gathering right now. I would suggest it's worth waiting to see what comes up rather than getting an iPhone 7 in 2020.

      that would be extremely cheap if it's AUD and features A13.

      I highly doubt it since the iPhone 8 already costs more than that, and it is running A11.

        The $250 mi A3 blows the iphone 7's camera out of the water, iphone 7 in low light is really poor considering it's price.

      The Huawei Mate 20 has one of the best cameras on a smartphone, it comes with 128gb and 6gb ram, on Android 10 and it's $500.
      You Apple fans are drunk af.

        Link to price please? I can’t find it on office works, HN, JB - only international version on Amazon AU for $750. The op’s link to this IPhone is from a reputable AU seller with 2 year Apple warranty.

        The brand that has violated sanctions on Iran, which is at risk of being banned from google services entirely? With the CEO's daughter they're trying to extradite to the USA? I mean, yeah if you want a phone like that go ahead lmfao.

          As I usually base my purchasing decisions around American hegemony, several sound reasons to buy…..thanks.

    $600 for a device released 3 and a half years ago lol oh Apple thank god you have gullible customers.

    • +10 votes

      It's funny how you think that iPhones retaining their value means the customers are gullible.

      It's more like Android users who buy $1000 phones that - within just three years - they can't update, fix or sell and go straight into landfill are a bunch of gullible, exploited fools.

        yep, used to be an iPhone user, sold it for only $200 less than what I bought it. My next iPhone (iPhone 5) still works perfectly to this day. iPhone 6S still going strong. Whereas my Samsung's, nexus and pixels all lag within a few months, my Nexus 6p became a brick battery life is very poor compared to my 5 year old iPhones and resale is horrible (since they drop $200-$300 a year). I don't use apple anymore and I still don't plan to. I am by any means not an apple fan boy but damn are their phones good qualities compared to anything else on the market.

          that's weird. I have an iPhone 5S and 6S and both have really poor battery life. About 1 hour of screen time and 100-0, or a few hours stand by. The 6S says it has 86% battery lifetime remaining. It's not useable without multiple recharges a day and pretty much remains charged any time it's at home.

          If you leave the phone overnight at 100%, by morning it is down to half. And I only sleep 5 hours.

        Old iPhones sell for this price because people are willing to pay it. That says more about the people than the phone. If they're not willing to pay it, the prices fall, just like the 11 series compared to XS/XR.

        •  

          and people pay for it because their shit works, this iPhone will probably a lot better than most phones around the $600 price range

          •  

            @bkhm: That's not my experience. But I refused to change the battery because Apple charges a lot to do it and made it difficult to do yourself. You have a choice of very short battery life (which is what I have) or a slower phone, which is what led to the shitstorm a few years ago when people found out Apple slowed down your phone without telling you.

            •  

              @lostn: Can't you get it replaced by third party? That's what I did. I'm not expected every person's experience to be the same as mine, all batteries come to the end of their lives at some point. Apple for me just seems to last longer than other phones, I know a lot of people still using old iPhones but not a lot of people using old android devices. Like I said, at least it still works and hasn't bricked.

              •  

                @bkhm: Android users like to upgrade regularly as it's not expensive to do so because of a large number of competing OEMs. Apple users like to hold onto their phones longer, probably because new phones are a lot more expensive.

                You can get it replaced by a third party, but Apple doesn't like that and can reject warranty if it's been serviced by an unauthorized repairer. They deliberately make it as difficult as possible for third party repairers to repair it.

                •  

                  @lostn: It really depends on the phone, Samsung and pixel both have passed the $1000 mark and are close to apple.

                  Dude if your phone is 3 years old, who cares about warranty

                    That's only if you're paying RRP. Samsung phones get discounted big time, and you don't have to wait long for it. That won't happen with an Apple phone. And so, Android users are willing to update their phones a lot more frequently.

                    Dude if your phone is 3 years old, who cares about warranty

                    if you're buying an iphone 7 now, it won't be 3 years old. Apparently people who buy old phones for 80% of their initial price when new don't care about warranty?

                    Whoever bought your old phone for only $200 less than you paid isn't very bright imo. I'd have spent the extra $200, got a more updated model and full warranty compared to no warranty.

                      @lostn: I meant you not changing the battery on your phone? Did the battery become bad during the warranty period? If so they might cover it.

    Do keep in mind that the current iOS or maybe the next will be the last for iPhone 6S and 7. This phone is already four years old, so 578 is still a steep price for what will be unsupported in a year

        And apparently they'll have an opposite but equally loud peanut gallery to balance things out.

        What's insulting? The fact that iPhones have more support than Android phones or that a third party seller is maintaining a high price for an old product?

        Why are people that value certain elements of an item beyond bottom price 'naive'? To each their own on what value is defined as for them. It's not just about being cheap.

      7 is just over 3 years old and uses A10 which is in the current iPad, I’d be very surprised if support is dropped before end of 2021 - Apple are known to take good care of existing devices. 5s has just stopped being supported three months ago…

      •  

        6 is also EOL now. 6S maybe next year. I stand corrected about 7, it might be supported for two years more. That's still not a great deal

        • +1 vote

          They won't EOL A10-based devices for another 3 years minimum imo, because the 2018 and 2019 iPads rocking this chip have been super popular.

          •  

            @dickmojo: While tthat may be true, iPad and iPhone suppor lifecycles don't have to be identical due to the chipset or release date. Ipad2 was supported long after iPhone 4 support was dropped, I recall they were both from 2009 or 2010.

            Of course I don't have insider knowledge but based on the observation that one phone gets dropped with each iOS release, 1-2 years for iPhone 7 is my bet

        I've been told that Apple continue support as they still want a marketshare in low socioeconomic countries.

      •  

        Are you for real? It's crazy that a 2019 iPad is still using A10.

      The new iPad uses the same processor as the iphone 7. Strange that they are discontinuing support for it.But jailbreaking and using older software should be fine. At this price , Xiaomi phones are a much better buy

    Not worth the money for such an old phone.

    My advice for anyone trying to buy this phone is, if you can afford it, get a iPhone XR or 11. There is a difference of night and day in the battery life. My previous iPhone 7’s battery used to last until 2 pm after an overnight charge. But the new XR can go overnight easily into the second day. The iPhone 7’s battery charge capacity was 80% after a year so that had some limited impact but would highly recommend the newer phones. That explains why there are so many cheap deals on iPhone 7. It’s not just a difference in screen size which makes this phone cheap.

    •  

      A battery at 80% doesn’t just have ‘some limited impact’, it becomes so notably bad that it’s pretty much useless. Not only does it mean your battery won’t make it through the day, overall performance becomes very sluggish/slow, even if you disable performance management. I agree that the XR and 11 have very good batteries, but a new 7 with a new battery will perform well for as long as the battery health remains above 90% (not saying you should buy one at this price, I wouldn’t even buy a iPhone 8 for $599). It’s actually expected that the new budget phone (which I think they’ll call ‘iPhone 9’) will have the same body as the 6/7/8 - the A13 chip, improved battery tech (since the 8) with the relatively small 4.7” screen should mean it could outperform the XR in terms of battery performance: I’m actually quite excited about this upcoming release as I prefer the pocketabilty of smaller screens!

      I'm buying a phone for a computer illiterate elderly person who frequently needs tech support and will not understand or remember the swipe gestures of a buttonless iphone. Even double press to bring up task manager to close an app is too much for them.

      This or iPhone 8 are probably the last iphones they will be able to use.

      iPhone 8 is too expensive right now though.

    A decade on Apple until 2019, $870 bought me a OnePlus 7 Pro. Wouldn't go back & this price is huge for phone this old.

    The best way to get clicks on deals is by submitting an Apple deal. 95% of clicks will be the Android users wanting to hate and only 5% actually buy. Haha

    Expired, back to $599 now
