    QOTW: Will you be buying an iPhone SE?

    Or is a 4in smartphone too small by today's standards?

    Re: QOTW: Will you be buying an iPhone SE?

    I'm actually thinking about it. My iPhone 5 is still working just fine for me, but the battery is showing its age for sure. I'll probably wait for some reviews to come out and for the early rush to subside, and then check with my carrier to see how much it would set me back.

    it will sell a lot for sure, but I don't feel like spending a lot of money to something so temporary like a phone.

    I'm not sure it will. I think the 6 with the .7" bigger screen and the fact it is a 6 will deter people from even looking at a 5SE

    No, I like removable batteries. So my next phones probably going to be an LG.

    Re: QOTW: Will you be buying an iPhone SE?

    It's interesting. I gotta change mine and was thinking about a 6S, since it's killing the competition - was not a Apple fan before these.
    Now with the SE, well yeah, the only downside is that 4" screen... but to put the very powerful stuff in it, it's kind of a gamechanger. I like the 4/5 design, it looks professional, the 6 have a more "cool" side to it. So, well. The € price is less attractive than the $ one (electronic & high-tech inflation prices in EU), but that's quite a deal. Will check it out definitely.

    phablets are good for some people but there are still people who like mobility and easy of use with one hand.

    Me for example move from a 4" galaxy s1 to a more recent 4.7" LG and while I love the extra screen, I just can't operate the phone with one hand anymore. And I hate this.

    Re: QOTW: Will you be buying an iPhone SE?

    No, I like my Sony Xperia Z Ultra, I prefer the 6.4 inch screen.

    The last iPhone I had was the iPhone 3.

    I would be more likely to get a new phone or iPhone if the produced one the size of am iPad or tablet with an 11 inch screen then I wouldn't need both a phone and tablet but could have a combined item.

    Re: QOTW: Will you be buying an iPhone SE?

    Nah. I can see pretty clearly that this is the previous generation in a new shape. It's too small and still has all the limitations of a typical apple phone (ie, locked software environment).

    And while it's substantially cheaper than a 6S, it is not cheaper than a LG G4 when I bought it, as a flagship device. No, Apple, you will not pull the wool over my eyes in fad motion, you've abandoned the small form factor when everyone else started making bigger phones, now face the consequences.

    I've just bought a Nexus 6P so I'm about the last person who will ever buy an iPhone SE (apart from maybe my Dad).

    It is not new, but still it's not the 5S, the internals are that of 6S in the case of 5S.
    Still I can't believe they hosted an event for showing rebranded hardware, nvidia and amd being my favorite rebranders have at least some dignity to do it quietly...
