There isn't much to not like. Apple is attempting to hit a user base it seems to try and stay away from. That's good.
There isn't anything that competes with it on the market for the money. If it came with an SD slot, it would literally destroy the market.

It just feels like their suppliers had a bunch of parts left over from the 5, and the 5S, and the 5C, and decided they could package it with the current iPhone's proc and camera and profit instead of writing off the excess parts.

These same people call Apple product owners 'sheep'.

It's basically a 6S in a BETTER shell, the 5S is the best looking iPhone Apple ever made. The only thing it doesn't share with the 6S is the screen.

All that for $400. Its more powerful than a standard 6 in every category.

>> No.53634993

>>53634802

Its got the internals of the 6S you retard. This isn't the 5C all over again. It actually has CURRENT YEAR top specs. People just begged Apple for a 4 inch phone, they thought they'd just used an already loved design which couldn't even be improved much further and put their current shit in it.

SE is not 7000 series, so no its not better. Its just smaller.

I like it and would love a smaller phone. However, I have a 6S and now, and I dont like compromises in the SE. The screen I can actually live with, but the gen 1 touch ID, lack of MIMO, stuff like is kinda a deal breaker.
If you are on an older iphone(5S/C, 5 etc) then the SE is a HUGE upgrade. While it is similar to a 6S in many ways, it is not the exact same thing in a smaller package, so Ill probably stick with the 6S

53635178

As someone who has been using an iPhone 4S since it's release, I can say the iPhone SE hits my exact demographic.

A noteable segment of the market is not interested in bigger phones, they look for something compact. Unfortunatly, most compact phones in the market come with horrible performance and general issues. Enter the iPhone SE, a phone with amazing specs at a great price, and small form factor. What's not to like?

I personally hate fingerprint scanners built into my phone, but that's my privacy preference.

I genuinely don't get what you retards like about I phones, used them plenty because my brother always gets a new one and I prefer my unrooted android

Yeah, but it's doubtful that someone poor enough to still be using a 4S could even afford the cheap SE.

>> No.53635278

>>53635221

I wouldn't say at all it has to do with being poor, but saw absolutly no features in phones released after the 4S that were a must-have. Only the phone getting bigger and having a fingerprint scanner, plus minor camera upgrades.

>> No.53635318

>>53635278
And speed upgrades and clearer screens and less-fragile designs and new software improvements...

Sure the 4S was a nice size, but honestly I can't fathom a reason why not even an iPhone 5/S/C hasn't caused you to upgrade yet, but suddenly the SE has?

It has the same battery as the 6S even though it is in a thicker shell, but you'll get a little more life out of it due to the lower screen resolution.

Z3C still works perfectly fine, if you never run into problems with the glass back you can still use it and not miss anything.
Z5C traded the glass back for something sturdier and isn't catching fire as a lot of retards thought. Has the same specs than the Z5 and also has the meme fingerprint thing. A decent upgrade if you had any other phone prior a Z3C, but maybe not worth it if you already are using one of those.

If it works, who cares? The only excuse for new design are clear improvements and no downsides compared to previous one. Something iPhone 6 failed at.

The most obvious improvement of 5s would be thinner bezels but the current design is too much part of Apples design philosophy to remove it for an updated device.

I use Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat often throughout the day and use the front camera a lot, of course I care about it. My 5s' front camera is really showing its age (again, 1.2 mpx) so why would they use it again? Obviously you don't have a social life if you think smartphones frontal cameras don't matter.

As for the design, I think it's just really lazy on their side. A lot of people didn't upgrade to a 6 due to the size, so a lot of 5 owners aren't going to feel too excited about rebuying the same phone again, when 99% of people don't care about things like processors and the current iPhone 5 or 5s still performs really well.
