Hey guys. I need your opinion. :)
I'm about to buy this SE but still hesitate with the price and performance. Most importantly, is it worth?
Before this i'm a samsung user since 2013 and going to buy a new phone because it is too old already but still in a good condition.
Looking forward for your comment. Thanks in advanced
Go for Nexus 6p or iphone SE or 6s. Other smartphones are just garbage.if u r a guy who likes to download stuff and browse internet go for Nexus 6p. Android is freedom. If u r a guy who just want a phone go for iPhone.iPhone has better build quality.
AnonD-533553, 04 May 2016I actually traded my T-Mobile Galaxy Note 3 for this phone. It was definitely worth it. Though... moreand thats is a lie !! Battery is much better then in Note 3 ? what bull**** is that ? I think always is like that new phone is much better then older once but come on be realistic. Have this 2 phones btw

Apple sells you Hardware + Software..
Other Android makers just sell you Hardware..
Apple is your one stop place for all your needs.
Android after you get it, you have to root / mod and beg Xda for all your needs, wasting time and effort. (Time is money you know!)
To pay good price for a tech that is always managed is well worth the price. Not so for your cheap androids, after selling.. thats it, no after sale support, no accessories no crap, always overheating, need your constant guidance... good riddance!

Truth be told it sold so well that even marketing heads Apple were surprised. Just because people of your third world country didn't buy this phone doesn't mean it didn't sell well.
I actually traded my T-Mobile Galaxy Note 3 for this phone. It was definitely worth it. Though it has its cons and pros, still the iPhone is the best. The speed was one of the noticeable things when I first got it. Even though the Note 3 had a 2.3GHz quad core, the iPhone's 1.8GHz dual core was rather much faster. The battery life on the iPhone is much longer than the Note 3 (different with software uses). The way the iPhone performs really outruns the Note 3.

The only reason that there are a large number of Android phones in the market because lot of manufacturers use them on their devices and most of these so called high selling Android devices are cheaply made, lack quality control and hence have substandard build and component quality. The only reason they sell well is because people who are too broke to buy a good quality iPhone go for those cheap junk handsets.
And about the so called powerful Android phones which are of same price as iPhone, well there are lots of stupids out there who judge a device just by its on paper specs and never try the device in real world. Such stupids buy those so called powerful Android devices.

Android boys are full of excuses and always been, they just cant face the fact that their octa core or whatever are slower than iPhone dual core.

AnonD-481725, 02 May 2016What speed test booting up the phone then opening and closing applications, this is silly, we ... moreWell I never felt restricted with my iPhone, I use a Mac and iPhone syncs beautifully with it. It doesn't lag and stutter like Android phones. I am able to make music on the go with Apple's GarageBand. Heavy games like GTA:San Andreas, Asphalt 8 load and run faster on iPhone SE. Using Procam 3 app on iOS one can record videos at an extremely high resolution of 4032x2268, something which even the most powerful Android phones can't do. Games like The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition, Monkey Island 2 LeChuck's revenge: Special Edition, Sam and Max, Tales of Monkey Island aren't available on Android. Apps like Scannable and Adobe Photoshop Sketch aren't available on Android and their Android alternatives are absolutely horrible.
Android apps aren't as refined as iOS apps, forget about iOS many major apps of Android aren't even as refined as their Windows Phone and BlackBerry 10 counterparts, for example Snapchat which works great on iOS lags horribly on Android. Even the short lived Snapchat client of Windows Phone called 6Snap and the short lived BlackBerry 10 Snapchat client called Snap10 work better than the Android Snapchat client. Other than that Instagram is more stable and works better on iOS, on Android it often fails to upload. Even Instagram client called iGrann for BlackBerry 10 and the Instagram Beta for Windows Phone are way more stable than the Instagram of Android. Truth be told iGrann of BlackBerry 10 is way faster than Android's Instagram.
iOS may be more restricted than Android but it's fine, those restrictions essentially ensure your security. Android lacks security and the worst part about Android is Google just doesn't accept it's faults and doesn't take any steps to improve security on Android. Other than that Google Play store is not at all stringent in implementing security protocols, recently even apps made by terrorist group ISIS were busted on Google Play store. Most of the apps on Playstore are full of adware and spyware.
Forget about non Google apps, even Google's own apps like YouTube run, load and buffer faster on iPhone, heck even BlackBerry 10 YouTube client called FastTube and Windows Phone YouTube client called PerfectTube are faster and better for Android's YouTube app.
Snapdragon 820 and Exynos 8890 Octa two of the top end chipsets used on Android devices throttle badly under load and Snapdragon 820 is further plagued by RAM management issues.
What you call freedom in Android isn't truly freedom, it is more like a security flaw which Google refuses to admit and other. Hardware on Android phones may sound good on paper but their real world performance and quality is nowhere near to the hardware used on iOS devices other than that app and software optimization is almost non existent on Android devices.
Android manufacturers forget the fact that a good device isn't just all about hardware specs. A good device is the one where software and hardware are optimized to work in perfect harmony with each other so as to ensure optimum performance and that's why iOS is still better than Android devices.
Comparing iPhone with Android is like comparing a sports car with a pickup truck. A pick up truck may have a bigger body than sports car and it may have a higher capacity engine than a sports car but rest be assured a pick up truck can never be as fast, agile and refined as a sports car.
The starting price at Rs 39,000 in India is higher than some existing models, like iPhone 5s at Rs 25,000 and iPhone 6 at around Rs 32,000.
I owned the 6s and the 6s Plus before. Honestly speaking the 6s plus series have all the features, both you use and seldom use. However the size is a killer, especially for the Plus model. Too big! Extremely a chunk when you need to move around the city and with things in your hand all the time.
The SE, though is a size down with less features, is a perfect size for those who just need the essentials suck as power, battery and latest Apps. Yes, battery on SE is major plus point on the SE. You can really survive a day out with this fella.
And the size is just right for a one hand operation.
