Finally found an iPhone SE Space Grey in Dubai!
Yuppie!!!! After a 1 week search all ending up in vain I finally found a store that has the iPhone SE 64GB Space Grey Color.
The problem is Apple under estimated the demand for this little powerful device and probably released it in limited quantities.
I bought the Silver 64GB iPhone SE for my wife on day one and she has loved it.
I have a Galaxy S7 (Exynos Version) and I love how snappy it is and the camera, but man the battery life especially the stand by time sucks big time. Like I'd charge the phone full, then not even touch it, after like an hour it would lose 15-20% I could barely get through the day with it and I am a moderate to light user. Yes I tried a factory reset and all background data for apps is off and no apps running in the background, as usual, Samsung standby time sucks. it's no different than actually using the phone.
Enough of that now..
So....I decided that I want an iPhone SE myself because when I held my wife's phone in my hand, something about it just felt so right. I don't know what stupid decision manufacturers have made to always release big phablets but I am a person who has a laptop and definitely don't need a big device that feels like I am holding a pair of slippers in my hand when I lift it to talk. I just want a small yet powerful device....
I searched in all the local shops here in the malls in Dubai, they only have the Gold, Rose Gold, and some of them have the Silver color but no one has the Space Grey color. Even Apple's Dubai website says if you order it now you will get it in 3 weeks. Same goes for the Apple US and Apple UK site.
Finally, out of desperation, I decided to Google "iPhone SE 64GB Space Grey Dubai" and I found a site called My GSM that has it with Face Time (the ones bought locally in the Dubai don't have Face Time)
So I ordered it but didn't pay and chose pay by credit card upon delivery.
The courier guy arrived at my door within 24 hours of placing the order and was extremely polite. He let me open the box and test the phone to ensure I am getting LTE signal and it has Face Time, then I made a phone call and everything was great. He also told me that if I face any issue with the phone, they will come to my place and collect the phone and deliver it to Apple. Very convenient. I highly recommend this site for people looking for this phone in Dubai:
I had a Spigen Glass Screen Protector that I ordered earlier and a Spigen Neo Hybrid (Metal Slate) - Metal Slate case which I slapped onto the phone. Minimalistic feel and good protection with a TPU inside in addition to the hard shell from the outside.
Love the all black look of this small snappy phone
