What would a regular chap want from a phone? It's an iPhone so it'll probably last forever, it's fast, it's beautiful and it's CHEAP. A CHEAP iPHONE!
It's HOT but i voted for NOT because of the cost and old front facing camera.
As it's not just for apple users I will vote what I think...: Maybe its old design, maybe its small memory, maybe unimpressive 1,2Mp selfie and for sure its way bigger price than already said. Right - it's phone with iOS, great (for apple fans) 12Mp front cam and processor, but everything else is entry level or less. Imagine that entry phones got even FM/bigger battery/dual sim(/bigger memory/front cam) and are for 100Â€. With people buying that no wonder they are top in earnings...
Apple just used the unsold iPhone 5s body frame instead of throwing them then packed it with new processors and a little tweaks here and there then iSheeps are amazed. Hahaha!
Recycling and marketing done right, Apple! Of course it is hot, if it has (almost) the same configuration with the beasty 6s. I just hope the battery is good enough without Apple downclocking the A9.
The phone is very impressing, but at least the Display should have been around 4.75" and not 4".
Its a good option for People(any one or multiple thing of requirements listed below)
-who are still using 5s and want an upgrade and is in US
-Anyone who wants an affordable(in apple terms) iPhone that will get updates(People who cant afford flagship apple products but still want a brand new apple product) STILL IN US
-Who dont watches movies in mobile(its really small screen really isn't my thing)
-Who has perfect vision(lets be honest,even my Xperia S which had a higher PPI looks pixelated in comparison with my galaxy S5 and it became worse after i started using s6)
-Who never experienced FHD/QHD SUPER AMOLED,SUPERLCD,QUANTUM IPS LCD screens etc
-Really Poor Apple fans in US(any self respecting Apple fan will go for Much better Flagship iPhones Because in other countries Both iphones are nearly identical in price and expensive)
-People who have no eye for beauty(In my opinion,iPhone 6s/6s plus,Galaxy S6/S7 aqnd its edge variants,HTC One M series,Xiaomi Mi5,Oneplus X ceramic etc looks far better than Iphone 5/5s/se)
for those who love ios and smaller device i think this is a no brainer
I'm a Note 3 lover (Hate the Note4 cause no USB 3 + thicker & heavier & hate the Note5 cause no IR and removable battery), but will wait for a new Note to buy from Samsung again, these infos are just to show that even though I love Android and will stick to it, this SE is surely a "Hot" device IMO, who ever wished for an iPhone 6s device with a smaller screen size can just go and grab one of these Hot babies, well done Apple. I'm sure they'll sell like hot cakes even though it's more expensive compared to the Z5 Compact, but Apple deserve it since it's "the" dream phone for a lot of iFans
i don't have iphone anymore (sold it to friends, my last iphone was 4s). i like iphone because of the size, but i like to watch movies on my phone thats why i sold my 4s for bigger screen. iphone SE should be good on 1 hand usage, well basically smaller phone is good on 1 hand but not our eyes if you like to watch movies on phone like me. im currently using 5.5" screen android, if i put the phone in my pocket i won't be able to sit well, im afraid i will bend the phone lol. in my opinion, iphone SE is HOT because it is a monster in a small package, no other phone has such power for the size of 4".
Anomynous, 27 Mar 2016Doesnt matter what the haters vote, iPhone SE is what the 5s owners asked for, Apple delivered... moreYou are delusional . LOL
Well I could agree that many iPhone 5/5s owners asked for same size phone- but not the same size bezels and same display. Apple could easily put better display and at least 4.2" even in the same body if they want.
Also they could put OIS if they want.
But they don't want. They don't want to lose the profit and put more job. And why should they , when they still own the fanatic fans.
If the fans wake up, I can bet on , Apple will start to give them more for the money(as Samsung do)
LEF, 27 Mar 2016Most of the phones out there are overpriced so I am not going to complain about the price. I j... morebecause people want it. many people asking for small screen phone. if there is no market for small screen, apple won't make another 4" screen.
This is like asking if meat sausages are good in a vegan forum. Completely pointless; everyone knows the result.
kalya, 27 Mar 2016Okay screen resolution, mediocre front camera,no touch ID, no 3D touch. How can we call it a f... moreFor this size of phone the resolution is more than ok, also this phone has Touch ID
Sony has been doing this for years. The best small size flagship for now is Z5 Compact. It makes no sense saying "finally a small phone with high components" when Apple does it, whereas Sony did it years ago with Z3 Compact.
would have been better like screen can be 4.5", front cam more than 1.2mp. but main drawback could be price tag as in india rumored price is 39K
For me it feels like apple was too lazy to make a new phone and they just put new chip in old body .of course there are customers who will prefer smaller screen but that is not an excuse to use old design . Everything is moving forward and design too .I think that people who are just to weak to see it will buy it .anyway this day 16gb entry it is just a joke .it is not enough even for few albums .again. people who don't know much about technology won't notice it and apple will save money .it is just not right game . Bad Apple
