Currently using Redmi note 4G from February 2015. Planning to buy iPhone SE. Please guide me my queries.
1) will it be advisable to buy se at end of 2017
2) will it run for minimum 3 yrs (with new iOS updates)
3) after using 5.5" screen, will it be very difficult with 4". Specially while typing.
4) is this phone good for writing emails and viewing Excel, word and PDF files. Am always busy with business email
5) have to travel whole day, so battery back-up time is essential. Note : I never play games.
6) I do a lot of net surfing.
Planning to buy 128 GB variant.
Due to pricing, planning for iPhone se, or else iPhone 7
I ordered it yesterday and it should arrive this week, but since I've been using 5 inch phone, I'm wondering how hard will it be to get used to a smaller phone again, for typing for example. Also it's 32gb one, and since I'm not a heavy user hopefully that much storage will be enough.
Anonymous, 21 Sep 2017Iphone 6s has second generation fingerprint scan button but the SE has the older one. (the 5s'... moreYeah I think so. Use a price comparison tool, for example here in germany I use idealo. Watch the price once a day. It's already below Â€ 400. But if you would prefer the 4 inch screen, the SE is better. The choice between SE and 6s is purely screen size, the rest of the little differences is irrelevant.
Anonymous, 22 Sep 2017If you are not impressed by SE battery you never had an iphone 5 or 5s, SE was a huge improvme... moreThat's true, i never had a 5 or 5s, actually se is my first iphone and as i said so happy with it after 1 year
But regarding battery, may be my problem is that i compare it to my previous android devices; man, if u wanna know what is "spectacular" battery life you should have used xperia z3 compact, galaxy a5 2015 or 2016....etc; these r the real battery beasts, sure there r many android devices with awful battery lives specially the newer devices, but generally speaking the battery of the se is good but very much away from spectacular; my friends tell me even that the se battery is better than iphone 7; so i'm still stuck with se, won't upgrade to 7 or 8 and really can't get back to android as i loved the ios software and se hardware a lot

(the 5s'... moreI don't think that price of 6s will go down soon, anyone can buy 6s instead of 7 as there is no much improvement for a normal user, the chip of iPhone 6s and se is same and its performance is little lesser than iPhone 7 in real usage, even though 7 is quad-core the overall performance is not much above the 6s, so they won't reduce price of 6s,, i suggest u to go for se, its a best phone
iOS 11 has improved felt performance by a lot. As we all know (and some still deny) iOS always had a delay where touch is unresponsive for a few milliseconds after returning to homescreen or bringing up the keyboard (the first keypress was often not registered if one start typing immediately), but from what i experienced so far on SE with iOS11 this delay is now not very noticeable, used to be quite irritating to having to tap once more to open an new app but now its so fast i accidentally opened apps upon bringing up homescreen. It used to feel like Windows Phone, which is completely unresponsive until it finished playing those extra long tedious animations for every little thing you do, no more now so this is a huge improvement. iOS11 is the first iOS that doesnt disappoint me.

After 1 year with this pretty phone, i really have nothing to complain, everything is peefect, even the selfie camera is very good
The only thing is that i feel the words about the "spectacular" battery life realy exaggerated, the battery life is just good, not that much spectacular
I am not a gamer, not a single game on my mobile, and i don't listen to music on the phone and all the stuff of closing app refresh, auto brightness, wifi forever on not mobile data, fetch is manual and push is off....etc and guys i am living with the charger! Sometimes i wonder if i should return to the wide android choices but i really can't after the wonderful world of ios
Iphone 6s has second generation fingerprint scan button but the SE has the older one. (the 5s' same one) I was considering the idea of buying another iPhone but I dont have enough money to spend on a new 6s(around 500 euro) and I was thinking about the SE, I think it's a valid device and relatively cheap(300 euro right now) and I like it pretty much, I'd like to buy another 4'' phone and this one seems perfect. However, I dont really like the black/White banners beside the home button, the first gen. fingerprint, my question is: do I wait for the 6s to be more accessible( I was thinking about the black friday and xmas sales) or should I buy the SE? Do you think the 6s could get to 375/400 euro this year or not? Sorry for broken english
