The 32GB Apple iPhone 6 (2017) has been cut in price by 15% in Malaysia

Last month, we told you about the 32GB Apple iPhone 6 (2017) that was being offered in certain European and Asian countries. The idea was for Apple to kill two birds with one stone. The device is lower priced than the Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 6s models, which allows those who normally couldn't afford a 4.7-inch iPhone, to pick one up on the cheap. It also fills a gap in the iPhone 6 line up. Back in 2014, this model was available with 16GB, 64GB and 128GB of native storage. The new 32GB model fills the gap between 16GB and 64GB of internal storage.

In Malaysia, the 32GB iPhone (2017) has just received a price cut, making the device even more affordable. Originally priced at the equivalent of $455 USD, the device is now available for the equivalent of $386 USD. The lower pricing was announced by a couple of Malaysian re-sellers, Switch and Machines. The handset is available in Gold only

The 32GB iPhone 6 (2017) features a 4.7-inch screen with a resolution of 750 x 1334. Under the hood is the Apple A8 chipset, and there is 1GB of RAM inside. The rear camera weighs in at 8MP with an f/2.2 aperture. The 1.2MP front-facing FaceTime camera also snaps selfies. An 1810mAh battery keeps the lights on, and iOS 10 is pre-installed.

With the price cut, the 32GB iPhone 6 (2017) is now cheaper in the country than the 32GB Apple iPhone SE. The 4-incher is priced at the equivalent of $443 USD. While it does offer a smaller 4-inch display, most (but not all) of the internal specs match those on the Apple iPhone 6s.

This device is for those that want Apple products.
I would take an SE, but it's their choice.

We are talking about roughly $390 here...

And you can get a LOT SUPERIOR phone for this price than this ridiculously over-priced and outdated ibend (No pun intended)...

Take Samsung Galaxy A5 or A7 (2017) for an example which are made on 14nm FinFet process and hence possess IMPRESSIVE battery life...

Unlike many of you, I believe in PA's battery tests (I really do, cause I'm no blindfolded "FanBoy") and according to PA's tests:

Galaxy A7 (2017) has a battery endurance rating of 12 Hours and 58 Minutes thanks to efficient AMOLED Display, 14nm FinFet Processor, and very efficient Cortex-A53...

While The iPhone 6 aka 'The ibend' (No pun intended) possess an endurance rating of just 5 Hours 22 Minutes.

And guess which one looks sleeker, has a MUCH bigger & sharper display and much superior build quality and customizability and is packed with features like Always-on Display and dust & water resistance...?

I'll give you a hint; It's not "ibend" (No pun intended... Okay, maybe a little...!)

Oh well,

Rahul 1999 talk about blind. Face it the iPhone 6 is too out dated for Apples asking price, especially in today's market. Even a Moto G5 offers much more with it's full HD display, 4k camera, and NFC, than this iPhone 6, and at half the price. You would have to be a loyal Apple customer that doesn't know what's out in the 2017 world. Rahul the iPhone 6 was originally released back in September 2014.

I wonder the percentage of PA users that reside in Malaysia or why this would interest any of us?
