I bought this phone about 3 weeks ago. I bought it for its size. It is light on the pocket and the screen display is good (ignore the contrast sceptics). I like it. I had the Galaxy S6 before this and it was very good too-but just too big for my bi-focal glasses. I got the 64 gigabyte version and there is plenty of space for music and videos. I watch movies on the phone and its good. I am not an android or an ios fan-I just look for a good quality phone that fits my needs: this is it. I recommend it for build quality, ease of use, speed, and it doesn't heat up under heavy use.

can you tell me an manufacturer that was able to sell the exact same thing?
i think iphones are loosing their position, these days most people like to have android instead of ios , and iphone is very expensive than it's challengers.

Especially if you take pictures or do video.

iPhone users use apps. They have tons of quality apps to choose from. Each already offers hours of entertainment, more then your 256gb worth of media.
Is Android really that dull? That all you do is BT transfer, pirated media watching? And not all Androids have those lame SD slots, and most android which have slots have limiting internal storage.. can't really have much apps.
IMO i rather have 64GB worth of songs from a selection of 100 000 songs, then a static internal songs of 256GB. Once your phone got stolen, broke, lost. GG. Thats the power of Cloud / Dropbox / iTunes Match / Box / Personal NAS.. people will not lose their songs so easily, and they can enjoy any time any device.

Love this phone. It's compact and fast.
Get the 64gb though. I bought the 16gb and even though I'm okay with it, I would like to have more storage space for more music.
64GB in 2016 is still really lame. Sorry if you never used technology to it's proper extent (I mean de-integrating yourself from the Cloud and going places where there's no signal and needing independent media storage of high capacity AND using all the obvious online features, downloading a whole season of a TV show in 1080p high bitrate for use on multiple devices, VIA THE PHONE WHILST ON 4G, and having a 200GB+ mp3 collection and having to choose which part you want to bring with you on a trip - limiting DJing options from phone a bit... and that's ignoring high bitrate video CREATION from 1080p@120fps. Then switching to flight mode to preserve battery especially when in areas of no signal (mountains, wilderness, underground basements etc). Then STILL being able to access all one's content without having to worry about the ARTIFICIAL restrictions put in place by Apple. Especially no removable battery, non-standard charging ports, and forcing people to the Cloud. Rather than offering the best of BOTH online and offline content worlds. It's obviously the way to go with storage being so cheap. At the prices Apple charge, limiting the technology so badly, is really abusive and offensive to real tech-heads who know what eMMC high quality storage flash memory costs - or doesn't cost... hint hint. Apple are trying to drive people to the Cloud, just like Google. Instead of being a higher-class, privacy and performance-orientated superior player in the market. One who could have REAL pride in what they do, whilst being one of the richest companies regardless. Yet they don't. Why not? Shame on Apple.
Noting the posting rules... what I say is court-level evidence-based, pretty much. Sue me and see, haha! FAR from trolling or bashing, this is logic! Shame the market's logic doesn't dictate to Apple to do better. Sheeple, gotta take advantage of their ignorance or their ignorance is going to take advantage of you, but for powerful companies, there is no excuse, they can lead humanity to better things than this lame technology-limitation. I want 512GB storage for under $500. Or $750, who cares, the point is the storage element does NOT make that much difference to the cost, when it's 8/16/32/64/128GB. My 128GB Sandisk genuine Microsd card with fast read/write rate cost £35 a year ago from a bricks and mortar UK retailer. eMMC AKA internal storage is generally faster and more reliable than microsd but generally, storage is CHEAP. I'm sick of waiting for someone to design a phone with decent capacity and other specifications without stupid limitations. For under four figures (or over, no-one has designed the near-perfect phone yet AFAIK).
Pudin, 12 Aug 2016I'm planning to change from android to ios and going to buy an se. 16GB looks small for an and... moreGet the 64gb. SE can record 4k video and that will eat up your storage fast. I lost mine a month ago and got a 5s to replace it. SE is an awesome phone
Greg, 10 Aug 2016Yes. Yes! Yes!! Lousy phone.Uhmm... What? It has been month and i have not faced any such problems. It is an awesome phone for me.
Pudin, 12 Aug 2016I'm planning to change from android to ios and going to buy an se. 16GB looks small for an and... moreDepends, if you will make a lot of photos, videos and transfer lots of music on it then go for 64 GB if you can.
alaa, 11 Aug 2016guys....should I buy Iphone se or Galaxy note 5? my biggest care is the battery and performance.One is a very small phone, and the other is a gigantic phablet. Obviously the note 5 will have greater battery life.
I'm planning to change from android to ios and going to buy an se. 16GB looks small for an android. A friend told me it is different in ios which 16GB is more than enough. Should I go for 64GB? Please advise.
iPhoner, 07 Aug 2016Because it is social status! ;)I used to think just like you. But it's not about social status. Is about how hard they work, and how good they combine the hardware and the software in order to obtain maximum "power". That's why people tend to buy this. It's almost like a lifetime option
