Only thing what I don't like about this iphone is design. You can't put "new engine in old car". Seems like apple was lazy to make new design. And I had iphone 5. It was great except scratches on sides. Hope they changed something.

You ask for a ton of things and basically make it an iPhone 6s, but you aren't willing to pay for the 6s, and then call it a 2012 overpriced piece of shit. Now, that they're making it their cheapest iPhone yet, you complain about the MANDATORY corners cut to keep the price low. Sometimes, you have to make compromises. I don't think a 1.2mp front cam could be a deal breaker for many, js
I think many people with 4s or 5 or 5s will consider this as their next upgrade, esp if they love the small easy to use one-handed 4 inch display.. 399 for iphone is cheap..
I think they put old touchID, selfie cam and also old LCD from 5s to reduce cost and to maintain 6s position as higher priced flagship..
reiduan, 23 Mar 2016How much apple paid u for this bogus complimentThey promised him the new iPhone AssE. :D :D
Apple has launched this phone in order to gain more users in the fast emerging developing world. They know that once users are hooked on too Apple it is very difficult for the user to move out of that eco system. This will put Apple in a better place has it can then role out more expensive devices and users will just upgrade too it. It's more about gaining market share than innovation
As Isaac Newton said "What goes up comes down" So is Apples innovation, it has nothing to show over the last few years.
aceofgenerations, 23 Mar 2016I guess they had too many iPhone 5S's and decided to just recycle most of the parts.100% agree with you
I guess they had too many iPhone 5S's and decided to just recycle most of the parts.
I dont get Apples priorities here.
A lot of people want good selfie cams. The probably lose more customers with the under speced selfie cam, than they gain by using the new camera on the back. (I peronaly would pick the better camera on the back, but if I ever took selfies using a selfie camera, I would say that the one used here is clearly not up to the task).
If they want people to embrace using touch ID, they need the new, better sensor.
And they would want that to spread Apple pay.
And if they want 3D touch to get good support from developers, they need all their new hardware to have that.
And why the same old design. No one that sees the device will stop and wonder what that is. And if they haven't heard of the SE, try to found out.
Hey! You know what? I would love to buy a brand new iPhone if I could afford it. You wanna know why? I'll tell you. Because of the IOS. It's more stable than Android and it's constantly updated/upgraded. Day by day, I like more the idea of my phones hardware to get old, instead of having a "beast" with old, not so well optimised Android on it. I see all my friends 5S's running smoother today, than my S5 (G901F). Until yesterday, I didn't even wanted to consider do downgrade in screensize, surely not for a 3 year old iphone model, but hey, if the SE will get a decent price in my area, I will consider to buy it. If so many people on earth can live with a screen 4" big, I can try it also.
And no, I don't wanna try custom roms. I just simply want my phone to work whenever I pull it out o my pocket. I don't wanna know why it works, how they do that, I just want it work and have no concerns about it.
So, I guess, these are pretty much the reasons people buy an iPhone for rational reasons.
This is just sad, an under-powered iPhone 5s just renamed, repacked and for re-sale. Apple is just in lacking of new ideas.
