I may look at something else so, cheers Glasso.

The P-Lite with the special zoom sounds neat, I'm after fairly decent sized screen, android based, decent camera and dual SIM

Budget of 3-500€

My LG V20 has dual SIM and I was going to use that for a trip to the US (for Google Maps/driving, until Covid put an end to that.

Something to consider, thanks for the info above.

Thinking of getting the 3a, what's Vodafone like as a carrier? Currently on 3

Vodafone has the best mobile network in Ireland but not the cheapest

Anyone know if I could use the eSIM slot for a Vodafone UK sim?

It's really the only thing stopping me from buying this.

With the Nord being only 20€ more expensive and having better specs I think they made a bad pricing decision.

I hate how it's cheaper in the US by a good bit. It might not be as snappy as the Nord but most people buy phone's these days for the camera and it's camera blows the Nord's away.

Dave 2D is a respectable YouTube Apple fan that I follow:

Dave has given a very positive initial impression on youtube: I'll provide the link later. €389 is bit stiff, but still sorta tempting

Shipping August 20th apparently.

Edit : August could just be the US availability. I have heard it's October in the UK so could be the same here.

Defo. CPU isn't always P1 when the OS is so optimized for it + battery performance. This will be a big seller. My 2XL is starting to feel heavy / big in hand so something more light weight with an excellent camera will do me perfectly.

"The Tech Chap" on YouTube has published a great comparison video about the camera on the 4a, iPhone SE and Oneplus Nord.

A lot of people buy a phone for camera and the Nord has been pretty much slated, even the flagship OnePlus phones are average.
