Not bad if you don't mind the smaller size and being tied to VM. 50 dollars off the regular price from VM. You have to add to cart to see the price.
The 6 & 6S models look to be priced ok too.

Also similar prices ar Boost Mobile .
The SE is probably the cheapest one,64 Gb model is usually $449 on other carriers,while the 16 GB model runs $399.
The 16 GB model is $299 on VM,but if I was in the market for one I would upgrade to the 64 for fifty dollars more.

There is also a $5 autopay discount, but this phone is stuck on VM for one year. Sprint can throw all the discounts they want, nobody's buying it.

I've been out of the loop for a few months. Is there a work-around to get it unlocked for RingPlus? In 1/2016, 5s models were on sale for $150 and $20 unlocks on eBay. Last I heard, MVNO phones are locked for 12 months.

Isn't the SE a 5S with a smaller battery? This doesn't seem to be a good deal.

Is it possible to unlock this and use it with Sprint? I noticed there are unlock codes available for Virgin Mobile iPhones on eBay..

Not a good deal. Stuck on VM with it. If you can deal with less storage, you can get it for quite a bit less and not be tied to VM.

Can you buy an unlock code to free it from VM or are you stuck with it on VM for 12 months?

Incorrect. This has the chipset of a 6S, meaning it is faster than any Android phone ever made.

No it's actually the full guts of a 6S (Minus newer touch ID), in a 5S body. These things are a heck of a bargain in my opinion.

Good device if you are okay with the 4inch screen.

Apple iPhones are good for gaming, but not faster in everyday use.

No, the SE has a bigger battery. It actually has longer battery life than the iPhone 6S. It also has the same A9 processor as the 6S as well as the 12mp camera which means you can take video in 4K. In terms of speed, the guy above is right, this phone is screaming fast. It's probably as least as fast as the top Android phones now, but this technology is already 1 year old. The newest iPhone (iPhone 7) actually lapped the Samsung Galaxy 7 in terms of real world speed. There's a video where the iPhone 7 opened and closed all the apps and started a second round before the Galaxy phone had even finished. Apple is really ahead of the pack in terms of performance.

In terms of bang for your buck, the iPhone SE is tough to beat.
