I see lots of hate for some people that doesn't understand the needs for others.
Some people just want
-Small device for the pocket, specially people with 2-3 devices
-Fast performing device that handle their work and basic needs, can open up and scroll through 2k names on the list
-Storage is not important, we simple backup or cloud them regularly, i have a Terabyte on Flickr, and Online Radio, i don't have gigabytes of games, this device is not made for gamer as it has small display, u wanna game, buy a console of Phablet-Tablet, this one is not for you, beside a more stroage will come with a 64 Gigs of storage, so shush!!
-Battery...Comparing a 4.7' display that has 1715 mAh or even ( as i have seen in comments) a 5.5" display with 2750 mAh with this 4" display that has 1642 mAh.... you're DUMP AS F*^K, your display consumes somehow more than 50% of the battery life, smaller displays with smaller bodies, Apple is limited, and as i compare between this one and the iPhone 6S, this one will out perform in the battery life section
Beside, we have home - work - car and power banks, if you're a heavy mobile phone user doing what-so-ever on the device, you will run out of battery in 5-6 hours continues usage whatever the device you'r using
Apple will continue doing the 4.75' "Basic" Lines
Apple will continue doing the 5.5" "S" Lines
They will not revoke them, they are adding something new to the family tree, which is good as they cover more market with it
I thought this was a perfect phone before they release the real front camera specification
ARiA7, 22 Mar 2016I don't understand why apple fanboy really interested with this phone. 1642 mAh battery? What... moresome practical users like small devices, big ones are not made for them, and charging for so many is not an issue with home, car and power banks, and it will come with more storage, they just announced the 16 with it's price, higher memory will be available
Dr. Krabs, 21 Mar 2016Yeah, iPhone SE is so clearly a sign that Apple is ignoring what their customers are saying, r... moreI can't understand why this bothers you, making a new line for iPhones with smaller displays will target lots of customers that has been asking for it (i myself is one of them), Apple never said that the basic lines and the "S" lines will be revoked, they will continue in production, they are just covering more market with this move as there are no 4" high-end smart phones whatsoever with strong performances...
Bentham, 22 Mar 2016...people want a smaller compact phone with flagship features Yes! 1.2 camera, but try to compare it with your 8MP front android camera. It is way better than your 5mp.
It's about time! I'm still using an Iphone4 for 2 reasons - the cost of a new IPhone and the ungodly size of the things!
great... my mum is using iPhone4 until now and she doesn't want a big phone... this might be a great option... :)
Ben, 21 Mar 2016Are u kidding?! The 64gb model is only 499$ and u have the specs identical as the 6s, the batt... moreI can accept your statements about similarities between iPhone 6s but you're exaggerating too much? Similar battery with 6s?? You must be joking
I love my 5S because its size is perfect. I'm totally in love with the SE now. Can't wait to get it! :)
Dr. Krabs, 21 Mar 2016Yeah, iPhone SE is so clearly a sign that Apple is ignoring what their customers are saying, r... moreA lot of people did want the iPhone SE smaller model and apple saw less sales on the 4.7in models and they saw more sales for the 5s, so they decided to come up with a SE
I don't understand why apple fanboy really interested with this phone.
1642 mAh battery? What's the point having small/compact phone when you always attaching it to the power bank?
1.2 secondary camera? You want to play guess who's face in this picture?
Only 16 GB? How many games, video, music, etc you can store in this phone?
And with all of this disadvantage you need to buy it for $399?
The best phone which you can actually use with one hand and is non-slippery. No more brick size phones for me. Hate those curved edge phones. Square edge rules. yeah baby.
Dr. Krabs, 21 Mar 2016Yeah, iPhone SE is so clearly a sign that Apple is ignoring what their customers are saying, r... moreGreat as about 45 minimum of apple users prefer to use 4" phone instead of brick phone and slippery edge phone. Square edge rocks.
