a question- can I put my cd music on the SE? I want to listen to music. Where is best place to buy the SE outside contract?

You can also look if you have turned on Bluetooth (settings > bluetooth)
A big factor are also background app refresh. You can have a look at them in settings > general > background app refresh

Ruel18, 09 Oct 2016How long does it take to charge your iphone SE from 0% to 100%? mine took 3hours, is it normal... moreYea it is normal. It does not support quick charge like the android devices do , but quick charge is bad for battery's health anyway.
How long does it take to charge your iphone SE from 0% to 100%? mine took 3hours, is it normal? Thanks.
the iphone se is a great option for the budget conscious. this phone is great for one handed operation and also has some of the newer hardware installed like a faster processor etc.
Just traded in my 6s+ for the SE. Not regretting it. Takes about a day to get used to the small phone again, but has a lot of nostalgia using something this size. I had the Nokia N8 for many many years and this is the same size. Hope Apple keeps updating this size handset for many years to come.

I don't have the SE (will buy iP7) and I agree with everything you said. The reason why I prefer iP7 over SE is because 4 inch is too small for me and 4.7 is still much more compact than these 5.5 inch slabs I also can't stand. Also waterproofing is a really important factor because it is helpful in everyday life because when you spill a glass of water, you don't have to worry that your phone dies. And when Apple optimized iOS to the iPhone 7, it will outperform the SE (which doesn't mean it is slow, it is still faster than 95% of the androids) and be more future proof and I can live without a jack (don't listen to music on my phone, only at home on my macbook). The design is better than on the iPhone 6, the silver iPhone 7 made the most progress and now just looks so beautiful, I think it is even comparable to the iPhone SE and much better than the iPhone 6 with fat plastic antenna lines and misplaced sticking out camera (the iPhone 7 cam is integrated into the body). So yeah, I'm happy the you became happy with apple, I'm also very satisfied with them and will be happy to change my crap android phone. I also have iPad mini 3 and MacBook Air and they are just awesome
For low budget rage i phone se is better compare to other budget phones camera is good . Battery also good . Good looking.
Anonymous, 08 Oct 2016SE ,the best mobile phone in the world. I wouldn't go that far but it definitely has the best value/price ratio as an iPhone! For me, this is a perfect iPhone for me: excellent performance (especially for gaming), classic 4-inch sized iPhone, best design/build quality iPhone, great audio quality (speaker&headphones) and fingerprint scanner. Really glad i bought this and not 5S... ...sure it was 130Â€ cheaper but SE is so much better in every aspect and more future proof! iOS 10 will probably be the last major update for 5S, anyway.
abhikapil1992, 05 Oct 2016guys please tell me which one is good to buy now 5s or se????????Please buy iphone se its awsome phone
Adel J, 07 Oct 2016I so agree with what you said. it is the best bargain as well as I don't think Apple would rel... moreYup. I think the market especially in the Apple camp became confused once Samsung and other Android OEMs started pushing larger phones on all of us. I see the advantages of bigger screens but what's the point of tablets anymore? I just find it rather odd that the iPhone Plus models don't have the same split screen features of the iPads but that's because "5.5 is still too small for something like that.
Everyone has their own preferences at what an ideal size to them. My ideal is from "4.5-"5 but would love the phone to be no taller than 130mm. I think this whole phablet movement will change once foldable screens come about in a few months. So why bother getting Note7, either iPhone 7 models, and V20 now when we know bigger screens will have smaller footprints once they can be folded? 2017 MWC is coming.
The iPhone SE is one of those oldies that is still a goodie. I saw the 6s outperform every Android flagship of this year packing Snapdragon 820, so SE should have no issues either as well having a better design and longer battery life than the 6s to boot. I am either thinking iPhone SE & PS4 slim or the current MacBook Air before they refresh it and eliminate ports. Don't miss out the SE though. The last iPhone to have a great and clean design, headphone jack, and no camera hump...
SE = greatest "4 smartphone ever and arguably the best iPhone that Apple ever inside and out especially in space gray...
^Very few weaknesses. Not only a bargain but extremely underrated while most of the flagships including the iPhone 7 bigger brothers feel overrated. I don't need Force Touch and the selfie cam is no big deal to me. This size is a dying breed now that the Sony Xperia X Compact failed to impress.
I just saw a review of the LG V20. Battery life was laughable at best. LG failed again on that one. While SE can outlast almost every iPhone out there. Double the battery life than V20 at half the price. I love LG more than Apple and prefer Android over iOs. But Apple nailed it this year with the SE and timing of the 7 Plus. Samsung and LG failed this year.
Returning to iPhone after three years being gone. And returning to the old way of having a compact phone again after using 137mm-144mm tall phones with "4.7-"5 displays for three years. The SE could be my first iPhone since the 4 but it truly deserves to be called a "Special Edition." The last great compact phone and great iPhone inside/out.

In addition, do you know that the SE has shown faster booting and apps response over the iPhone 7? it's in youtube.
This phone is the real power horse and no one should miss it out.
Good thing LG kept batteries removable but battery life is still awful. Both South Korean companies' mistakes with Samsung rushing the Note7 with a critical flaw (it isn't the battery but the faulty circuitry) and LG taking their merry time (took so long, high price, poor battery) on the V20 basically forced me to look to Apple and I can't stand them! The Google Pixel doesn't interest me either.
I looked at the iPhone 7 Plus and decided forget it. I will get the iPhone SE instead to make room to buy a PS4 slim.
SE over 7 Plus
+ Better design
+ Nearly half price
+ Last iPhone to have headphone jack
In fact, I realized why do I need surfboard size phones like the Note7, 7 Plus, and V20 for double the cost? I hate glass backs of the Note7 that scratches and smudges easily. The matte black 7/7 Plus still attracts fingerprints which makes people miss space gray which looks clean. The SE still has far greater battery life over the V20 and might even surpass the Note7 and 7 Plus. I will get an iPad mini 4 with also has much better split screen features than most "5.5-"5.7 phablets.
Most cost efficient way is to avoid any of the flagships and get the $450 iPhone SE. Then for the other $300-$400, get something else like a game console or OnePlus 3. Only reason why I don't need OnePlus 3 is because the iPhone 6s and SE with the A9 chip still outperforms the Snapdragon 820. Apple is one-year advanced with their SoC over Qualcomm. I also don't like that "5.5 size or the possible burn-in and less longevity with OLED.
Avoid the Note7 for public safety issues, uglier iPhone 6s/6s Plus, jack-less 7/7 Plus, and weak battery life of the overpriced and super delayed V20. The SE is the way to go. Then use the savings for something else like a Chinese flagship (Axon 7, Mi 5, OP3) or a newer video game console. We shouldn't pay more than $500 for any phone these days. The iPhone SE is one the best bargains of 2016 which is surprising since it is coming from Apple.
+ A9 > Snapdragon 820
+ Best smallest smartphone ever with 2gb RAM
+ Camera not that much worse than iPhone 7
+ Battery life is as great as any of them
+ Old bit better-looking and cleaner design
+ Great internal audio which trounces the S7
+ Nearly half price as a Note7, 7 Plus, and V20
Does it support VoLTE in JIO network in India, Since iPhone 5S is not supporting even after updating it to iOS 10.0.2
