In a world where a lot of people have about a million computer devices, smartphone, tablet, laptop, desktop, I realized I no longer had a need for a phone as large as my 6S plus. If I need to do complicated work, there are a host of other devices I can use to fulfill that purpose, a lot better. Having a 4 inch screen phone in which I could reply to the occasional email, maybe do some Reddit browsing, call, and text is all I need.
The phone fills two demographics - those who prefer iPhone and were waiting for a cheaper option, and those who prefer a smaller form factor phone. Which is why this will ultimately be my next phone, and there are a lot of people out there who feel the same.

No other brand have a better resale value for its products than Apple.
AnonD-218710, 05 Apr 2016Until IPhone 7 released maybe sell a bitbit, later it's deadly to consider. It's a propaganda... moreNot even the Chinese are buying the Chinese brand.
The Chinese have pre ordered the iPhone SE at 3.7 Million in the opening weekend of sales.
Therefore it is a great hit in the Chinese market.
China has the largest Market in cell phone sales.
The latest processor and amazing ram for a small phone is worth it. The iPhone 6&6s series are a lot bigger than. It's a slight upgrade of iPhone 5s but it completely blocks the iPhone 6, you'll never hear about it.
No need to upgrade from 5s.. If too much into games den 4inch screen is nt adequate nyway, I believe 5s does all superbly alrdy
Anonymous, 04 Apr 2016You embarrassed yourself there, A Samsung s7 is just old Samsung s6 with new parts in it. What... moreWell, you have answered your own question...
The difference being the new parts.
Do you feel embarrassed by that?
Until IPhone 7 released maybe sell a bitbit, later it's deadly to consider. It's a propaganda 399$ that's 16gb feel like laughing, better Chinese specs, just bet for iPhone downwards journey.
Ronie, 05 Apr 2016A 4 inch phone is only good for calling and texting. So high end hardware is not of much use. ... moreI like the compact phones, and phone means phone not phablet. iPhone SE is excellent for me. Compact phone with the power of A9 chip and powerful gpu *♡*
i'm thinking about buying a new phone. im using iphone 5 now. the options are iphone 5s or xiaomi mi5(still waiting for its release in singapore) because they are about the same price now. wish i could just buy iphone 5SE but my budget's not up for that.
So, Iphone 5S or Xiaomi Mi 5 which one is better and why? Thank you.

Pao, 05 Apr 2016Im a bit confused. I want the LG nexus 5x and Iphone SE. And i didn't know what to buy. Pls help meBuy Nexus 5x if you are into customizing your phone to the core such as flashing custom ROMs, custom Kernels, mods, XPOSED framework or even crazy, dual booting with some other OS etc. coz Nexus devices get a lot of love from android community and are easiest to root. If that's not your cup of tea or you are going to use the handset as it is shipped and rely only on official updates, I'd say go with SE, it's apple's flagship hardware minus some nifty features such as 3D touch and smaller form factor, at relatively non-premium pricing (by Apple standards off-course).
iPhone 5S is 2.5 years old already and it is still performing lightning fast. Apple A9 in the iPhone SE is definitely an upgrade over the A7 chip in the 5S, but in terms of real world usage, you will not notice much difference as both phones run super smoothly with the SE having lesser or no lags.
As for the camera department, a bump to 12MP is definitely welcomed. However, picture quality on the 5S is still very good and unless you're a super camera-eccentric person, you'll probably be happy with the 5S camera too. It takes excellent day to day photos and is still faster than most android flagships.
So is worth the upgrade from 5S to SE? I wouldn't say so.
The 5S still performs superbly for a phone released long ago. If apple implemented the 3D touch display in the iPhone SE, it will be a different story.
2.5 years and Apple could have done so much more to improve on a 4 inch iPhone. Not saying that the iPhone SE is bad in any sense, just that it is not worth the upgrade. If you're coming from Android, this will be a superb phone for you to try out.
However, if you're coming from the iPhone 5 or earlier models, I definitely would recommend you to upgrade to the iPhone SE or the iPhone 6S/6S plus. You'll notice the difference then.
***** Do get the 64GB model if you to take photos and download applications. The 16GB model has around 11GB usable space which is not up to today's standard anymore. 4K video wwould take up a lot of space and the 16GB option just do the job*****
Have ordered one today, love my iphone 5 absolutely hated the iphone 6 and on with ther screen breaking all the time and high cost to fix, also the phone was to big. About time Apple went back to a 4" phone. I was going to change to the Samsung until I heard about the SE.
