    The SE does not have 3D touch, and the battery life is a lot better than the original 5S due to the power saving attributes of the A9 and the fact its driving a smaller display. Also the Touch ID sensor is the same as the one in the 5S not the current second get as in the 6S.

    It also has 2GB RAM, so for a 4" iPhone it packs a pretty punch.

    Have preferred the smaller screen for a phone. Have played a lot with my Dads iPhone 6 and it just doesn't suit me. The 4" is compact and fits in my pocket and I can use with one hand with no stretching issues. Maybe if I used the iPhone 6S as a daily phone I would get used to it. Some people just prefer small. I have an iPad for bigger reading, or my Laptop.

    You mean Apple would do that?

    Maybe not intentionally, but apparently existing iPhone 5 and 5S cases also fit the SE.

    Seems a decent upgrade from the 5c. 16GB of memory on the base model seems a bit crap though.

    I kept my 4S for a long time, but when it got slowed down by iOS9, I got a 6S. I'll go for the SE, but the perfect phone for me would have been those guts in a slimmed down, waterproof 4S body. Apple used to specialize in impossible engineering feats, but they seem a bit lazy now.

    Re: Apple launches the compact but powerful iPhone SE

    Every time I try to send a message on a chairlift in a ski resort, I am reminded how much I'd rather have a smaller phone. I simply can't do it on the S3 without using a very loose grip to "move" the phone around by hand while I am typing, and the S3 isn't even a big phone by today's standard. And I didn't notice it when I first skimmed through the article, but the pricing is very aggressive for a phone that has most of the spec of a flagship model. Pity for the lack of microSD/IP rating or removable battery but this is consistent with the iPhone.

    But I'd love it if Samsung release the S7 Edge on a 4" screen priced just as aggressively. Heck, it would make sense on their "Active" range. A big phone -is- nice if you are consuming a lot of content, or I suppose, you want to do a bit of work on the move.. but if it probably isn't necessary if you do a lot of outdoor activities. For that, I'd go big battery, water/dust/impact resistance, bright screen you can use with gloves on. No need for a big screen.

    I think 4.5" would have been a better small size phone than 4"

    Also on big phones the bezel frame around the screen is the real problem, they need to create better technology that eliminates most of that

    Personally, given my very small hand, 3.5" would probably be ergomically ideal, especially as I want increased thickness for the battery. But I can see that it probably wouldn't be popular. 4.5" is already bigger than what I'd class as a small phone.
