Apple's restrictions have been around for years, so they shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone - you can't have expandable memory, fast or wireless charging, FM radio, swappable batteries, among others. The new 3D Touch tech isn't present either for obvious reasons though you can still capture Live Photos.
Switched from a Motorola Nexus 6 to this, my first ever iPhone (I know - went from a giant phone to a small phone).
Battery life is fantastic with a charge lasting at least one day with heavy use.
Performance is the fastest I have experienced.
I prefer the intuitive nature of iOS now that I am getting used to it.
Very happy I made the switch.

haha u dont even know me and just judging from a comment about mobile phones u think you know me! funny guy!
theres 2 sides to narrow mindedness in the comments. although I do understand your point. but to say the list of things the iPhone doesn't have, are important to people, is also narrow minded bcuz not everyone needs those things so its narrow minded to think every person would need those things listed. its fair to say some people would want radio on their phone, but some wouldn't care if theres no radio.
so, if you think Everyone would want those features listed in previous comment which iPhone doesn't have, then iphones wudnt sell and u would have a narrow minded view of peoples needs, of the world, of the whole universe, (sarcasm)

I just find u a sad person who comes on here to write hate.
there are thousands and thousands of products in the world. some awful, some ok and some great. if you showed the same hate for every single product in the world then ur little head would explode.
Anonymous, 16 Apr 2016You still don't get it. It is about the type of stupid bugs Iphones have had in the past 6 mo... morehaha ur a funny guy who is hell bent on proving people wrong about iphones!
why does it matter if I like iPhone and u dont? I'm allowed to like what I want. nothing is perfect as long as its good enough for the user.
going back to the serious bugs.... there were minor bugs there were no serious bugs. the biggest bug in the new os was a bug which could brick the phone. BUT.....
it wud only brick the phone if the date was changed on the iPhone to the year 1970!!
if the year was 2017 to brick the phone then id say its a serious issue but it isn't.
and like I said, apple releases an update very quickly to remove the bugs. sumthing which apple is good at unlike android where users have to wait a long time for updates.
so the bottom line is that right now all iPhone users are happily using their phones without dealing wid bugs on a clean and simple to use operating system.
Now please crawl back in your android cave and wait for the next apple article where u can spew ur hatred again. or u can get a life and enjoy the things that make you happy and to IGNORE the things dat u dont like.
I would recommend u practice yoga. it heals ur mind and you will enjoy life more and u wud stop writing hate about products you dont like bcuz ul realise its petty. good luck in your rehabilitation.
I love apple products then i like iphone se it's super an handly phone

... moreYour comment illustrates the fact of your narrow minded view of the world because you didn't take into consideration other peoples needs due to a variety of reasons.
Your only consideration was in the realm of how you, and/or possibly your friends, use a phone.
Anonymous, 14 Apr 2016also, every operating system wether its on a pc or a mobile, would encounter bugs big or small... moreYou still don't get it. It is about the type of stupid bugs Iphones have had in the past 6 months.
Imagine Microsoft having a bug in Edge or a Mac with Safari for that matter, that would cause the PC to reboot or a bug that would make the PC unusable if you set it to a certain date.
Your and examples are poor attempts at defending mediocrity. At least that's what it appears you're doing.
Charging a premium price for a below average quality OS is unacceptable to me.
Anonymous, 15 Apr 2016people here debating which is the best and defending their phone is the best.. it just like yo... moreso thrue... either wich brand you buy, you can have a good or a bad one, it needs a bit of luck, and a new model has always bugs, it is so with anything. So please be objective instead of bashing.. Thank you
people here debating which is the best and defending their phone is the best.. it just like you trying to find which is the best car: mercedes, bmw, or audi.. just pick one you love.. and get a real life instead of wasting ur time here bashing other brands
lyn, 12 Apr 2016I'm not a fan of apple, I just read this article to see if Iphone SE specs are good because I'... moreDO NOT by any LG product phone, I lost everything in my phone due to my LG phone keep shuts off itself or it gave me a green screen. That's why I am here look for apple product again.
Carol, 15 Apr 2016Sorry that i have to ask. Since when is apple a phone company? Cause i don't remember. Yeah, t... morehaha funny :)
yes they evolved from ipods, like caterpillars turning into beautiful butterflies. just in same way ipod evolved into a beautiful iphone. with great reception, very good quality sound and speakers especially when connected via an amp to large speakers.
unfortunately for you, apple can be classed as a phone company. just like samsung who also make tvs and refrigerators but they are still a phone company too.
its understandable ur not fond of iphones as majority android users arent. just like every real madrid fan would hate barcelona with a passion and vice versa, apple and android phones have similar rivalry but people with common sense will appreciate both even if they favour one more than the other. but some people do go over the top by going out of their way to advertise their hate for a phone. it does sound sad :)
Anonymous, 14 Apr 2016what do u mean by 'showed us all' ?????? are you representing an army of android fanboys? ... moreSorry that i have to ask. Since when is apple a phone company? Cause i don't remember. Yeah, they started to suck the market with some phones that became phones only with the latest releases (they were pretty much ipods before, crappy reception, microphones, speakers). And they will probably look to use this cashcow as long as they can. But to call them a phone company is a blesphemy to real phone companies;).
ashu, 12 Apr 2016I want buy new phone I am confused so help me which phone best I phone se. I phone 5s, mi5, there is no 'best phone' since it is very relative, only 'ideal phone' which suits your need..
first, you must choose which os you really want? ios (apple) or android or windows (lumia/microsoft)?
if you picking android, there are plenty of options you can choose depending from your budget.. right now xiaomi is unbeatable in term of 'value of money' but of course, like I said before THERE ARE lot of options out there just pick one that fits with ur budget..
if you want apple, either iphone6 (flagship and expensive) or iphone SE is cheaper than iphone6 and better specs compared iphone5..
Anonymous, 13 Apr 2016u call me narrow minded but dat applies to u at the same time from your comment about iphones ... morealso, every operating system wether its on a pc or a mobile, would encounter bugs big or small whenever a new update is released. apple did have some bugs in their os, something which is normal with every new os update on any platform. but apple are amazing at releasing updates quuickly to fix their bugs. all bugs you had mentioned were already taken care of way before u wrote about it. at this time, there are no bugs. talk facts about the present, not about any bugs because even android has suffered alot too.
Anonymous, 14 Apr 2016Of course I called you narrow minded bwcause from your comment you showed us all that you are.... morewhat do u mean by 'showed us all' ??????
are you representing an army of android fanboys?
And why do you carry alot of hate for a phone company? its sad! its easy to figure uv been replying to alot of peoples comments on here trying to put them down if they mention anything positive about iphone!
I know its a fact iphones are assembled in china... i did mention that and u just repeated what i said. my point was does it matter where its assembled???
i also pointed out that samsung phones are also assembled in china. does it matter where they are assembled? u just showed ur narrow mindedness to your army of droidfanboys. a product doesnt become inferior to others just by the country it was assembled in.
and do you even have a social life? or do u just sit on ur computer spitting out hatred towards a phone company? about products u dont even own?how sad!
Anonymous, 13 Apr 2016u call me narrow minded but dat applies to u at the same time from your comment about iphones ... moreOf course I called you narrow minded bwcause from your comment you showed us all that you are.
Fact: iphones are assembled in China. Look at the back of the box.
The reason ios is on the current 9.x version is because of the sirious bugs the bricked or disabled the phones.
Woopwoop855, 12 Apr 2016OK so you've been a Samsung user for years and only just switched to the iPhone 6s I think you... moreI did that because I thought Iphone is just an expensive shit and I also thought that Samsung will improve their devices...Yes, it was a mistake and that's it.
YES, Iphone is VERY expensive like Samsung is too.
I am not a troll or an Iphone fan. I really don't care who has a better hardware.I do care that I am not force to restart the phone 2-3 times per day because of ...freezing
I am just a user who is sharing his experience. For me, Iphone is much, much better than any Samsung I had(including S6). You can say whatever you want, I don't care.

As far as o... moreu call me narrow minded but dat applies to u at the same time from your comment about iphones being made in china.
does it matter where the facility is located to make the phones?
did you know samsung phones are also made in china??
as well as vietnam, indonesia, india and brazil. with vietnam being the largest plant!
also did u know with apples latest ios 9.3, there were some bugs but they were NOT major bugs like u mention. also, apple already fixed these bugs with a quickly released update way before u had even started typing your message.
make sure u know what you are talking about as your not well informed either. back in your face.
ios may lack features which are available in android but they are not life changing features. alot of people dont care about changing the colour of their keyboard or changing fonts as these customisations are optional and not necessary. i own a jailbroken iphone and i can customise my iphone in many more ways if i want to.
