They also said it would not fit in my pocket, yet I did everyday. I still use other 5.5" phones today, I still use them one-handed and they fit nicely in my pocket. You can say it does not but you were proved wrong ages ago.
Some people may prefer smaller phones which is fine, but even for them a phone with a larger screen but small former factor is best. iPhones have terrible screen to body ratios and inferior design for ease of use one-handed, so are far from the best in this regard. The main advantage of the SE is there are very few smartphones being made at that size anymore, as contrary to Apples view 4" was not the perfect size for a phone and the majority of users prefer a larger screen size, hence the reason IOS fans flocked to buy the 6 series.

This is bcos the iphone 6/6s plus are poorly designed, and iOS UI and most of it's apps are not fully optimized for convenient user navigation on large phone screens.
To apple's shame, even my 7'' Kindle fire has better and more convenient UI navigation than both iPads and iphone 6/6s plus.
Im typing this on a NOTE 3, and the ONLY time I use two hands are when I'm typing text. For EVERY other purpose, I CONVENIENTLY use one hand, and I don't even have large hands. Check it online, and you'll hardly see galaxy note owners complaining about the size of their phones.

And no you cannot use that phone one handed unless you are a giant,had the Note 2. Big phones are good for multimedia use but thats as good as it gets. Using a large phone on daily basis is a nightmare. Thats why people an alternative,a powerful small sized phone and thats what they find attractive on the SE

You are thinking of "Assisted Touch" which is enabled in the accessibility menu (Settings > General > Accessibility ), it is not the same and limited. "Reachabilty" is a way to bring the screen nearer the bottom of the phone, again it is not the same and very limited, it was an after-thought copy of a feature many Android phones already had.
If there was no lineups when it was launched. Then I have to believe now that this has to be some made up propaganda or hype to help sell more of these devices.
Anonymous, 20 Jun 2016he referring to the trolls who bash everything apple related on every apple atricle. people ca... moreYou must research on this word " conparison" first
Actually you are typically sheepie and yes you qre Butthurt after hearing truth of apple devices..
When someone praise iDevices..
That would be great thing for you..
And if someone write against apple device that would be trolling..lol
How childish this thing is..
Anyway did I say in my comment related to android..
Remember if someone is writing anything negative( things which are neefed to be improven) against apple iDevices it doesn't mean he/ shr is fandroid.. so grow up.. and comment technicaly for the sake of technology...
lol so many Android trolls bashing iPhones, you guys are obsessed with Apple..Haters gonna hate..
WickedWilly36, 18 Jun 2016Let me educate you about the S7 and Android as you obviously comment on them with no knowledge... moresame thing can be done on iphones too by allocating different commands to buttons. but some people dont know how to use these things. my mate has an s7 and u do need to use other hand to pull down notification menu.
iphone 6/6s is simpler where u tap the home button twice and it pulls the screen down half way in order to reach higher placed buttons. android might have this feature but not sure.
Dr Danger, 18 Jun 2016so according to you discussions, compaisons, debates,choices,reviews.....all are meaningless..... morehe referring to the trolls who bash everything apple related on every apple atricle. people can debate but trolling is sumthing on the increase on apple articles. u must be a fandroid for coming out with sheep comment. theres a difference in trolling and debating and comparing
"IPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus as well as iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus and iPhone SE models"
already ban for infringed on the patents of 100C, a China phone, which mean Apple's as usual a master of copy cat.
[deleted post]400 for a recycle phone to be exact. For sure is paid, else where does Apple's spend huge $$$ on?
I can't believe people are still buying 16GB models in 2016, a lot of people apparently.

One they have smaller bezels making the screen more accessible; two they are lighter and better designed to hold so fit more comfortable in the hand; three the desktops are customizable so allow for better organisation for one-handed use; four Android phones are better designed for larger screens and lastly the point I made before with programable hard and capitative buttons close at hand navigation is far better.
Yes some phones are too big and heavy but the point is for the screen size many Android phones with the same sized screens as an iPhone are perfectly usable one-handed where as the iPhones are not. Compare the sleek Galaxy S7 Edge to the Bloated iPhone 6s plus.
My Note 2 with a 5.3" phone was very usable one handed and my 5.5" S7 Edge too.

Those what you said are just work around for things.
It's not solution to get everything where your thumb can reach, you are just avoiding the real problem. I also have reachability so i can reach everywhere but it's not solution, its just compromise to try to make same things with bigger screen.
willboyce, 19 Jun 2016Sounds like some people dislike this phone. Hhhhmmmmm I wonder why it's selling so well lolHybrid user here.
Because front camera is just 1.2 MP instead of 5 in the iP6S (and plus)
that's why hate.
its really easy to figure this about Android and iOS.
Android has a robot, robots are made to serve its maker and so its a servant.
iOS has an apple with a bite represents knowledge from which you can take. (mostly users really need some knowledge). why do you guys think why adam and eve where banned from that place? its evil I tell you... EVIL...
