    Assume that the SE has 1GB ram.

    Would you have preferred if it were $499 - but was fully fledged like 6S: 16GB Base, with 2GB RAM, 3D touch screen, 5MP front cam, and faster cellular data? (basically the only difference is the 4" screen.)

    (Imo as much as I'd love that - a lower price point would probably be more appealing to the target audience without compromising 6S's sales.)

    I think the general public would prefer a lower price than 1 extra gb of ram.

    $499 probably wouldn't be better because that is higher than the 5s which was $450 before the SE was announced and most people probably don't even know the RAM specs so $499 would be a way higher price than they expected.​

    They would probably be just as happy if it had A8 and was another $50 cheaper.

    Yes! I am a 6S owner but I love 5S' form factor. I would grab it at 499$. :D

    3d touch isn't a deal breaker. Ram is. But I'm not paying $100 for 1gb of ram, it's just not happening.

    I said that $400 would be my price point well before the event today. I said I needed 2gb ram. It'd really that simple.

    I am thinking it has 1GB or Apple would have made a point of telling us.

    Marketing.

    Apple never announces the amount of RAM in their products, however you will find that many tech sites are reporting 2GB of RAM in the new iPhone SE.

    Most likely 2GB of RAM in the new iPhone SE.
    The price is really good.

    I hope it does for those who want the SE.

    I'd have paid full 6s price for an SE if it had full 6s specs (except size/screen of course). Happily.
