If you don't care about the Operating System, here's the breakdown:

SE is better at:
- pure performance and speed (underclocked A12)
- gaming (so smooth)
- 5 years of updates
- video quality (no contest)
- durability (IP rated water resistant)
- resale value (again, no contest)
- ergonomics if you have smaller hands (or if you don't like pocket bulges)

4a is better at:
- battery life (by a HUGE margin)
- screen clarity and size (easier to type)
- still image quality (has Night Mode)
- built-in call screening (so good at blocking Spam)
- AI features if you use them (I don't)
- ability to side-load apps like YouTube Vanced (no ads)

I have a 3a and an SE, and I use the SE as an iPod Touch and the 3a as a daily driver. I'm OS-Agnostic.
Biggest sleeper phone ever. It's amazingly fast (same chip as the iPhone 11 Pro Max), looks like your Grandpa's iPhone 7, and is cheap as hell so less heartbreak if you lose it or drop it. Battery life is mediocre is the main downside, I actually prefer LCD screens to OLED at low brightness but YMMV.

There is no other phone that will last you 5 years at $339.
This is available on cricket right now for 49$ and 60$ service with a mobile number port. You can downgrade the service cost to 30$ pm immediately after activating the phone on cricket. Use it for 6 months and get it unlocked.
So total goes for :
49$ + 60$ + 30 x 4 more months of service totaling = 230$
One can also get $25 additional referral bonus.

Not a bad price for no contract required, but not like you wouldn't be planning on keeping your service for a while if you got this. If you're switching carriers you'd get an even better price.

But I got a feeling that tomorrow the carriers will be giving this phone away for free, or close to it with either trade in or 2 year contract.

I'd just wait until tomorrow or Friday. Sale doesn't end until Cyber Monday. No rush.

Don't think anything new will happen tomorrow. Deals posted on SD seem to run until 2021. The cricket promotion ends 1/7/2021 for example.

Yes, it's unlocked and has the bands to be supported by T-Mobile 4G LTE.

thinking of getting this phone for my son. I just want something that will do the job, but will upgrade from his flip phone. Do you think the battery life is good enough for a "cheap" phone for a teenager?
