Pixel 7a, Galaxy A54 show that Apple is clueless when it comes to cheaper phones

Still, setting aside performance and price, in every other way that counts for budget smartphones, the iPhone SE is lapped by devices from Samsung and Google.

Yes, setting aside the possibly two biggest factors when buying a phone, you have a point.

But even setting that aside, Apple trounces Samsung and Google in sales (see, for example, https://www.tomsguide.com/news/smartphone-sales-figures-counterpoint-research ), so at best, you could make the argument that consumers are clueless, but Apple seems to know exactly what it's doing.
