    Default Re: Which phone were you using before the SE?

    iPhone 5s to 6s+, one year later the size is grating on me so have purchased an SE. The 7 was in my hand for a week but I couldn't justify the UK price and the SE performs just as well in my opinion, even the camera is similar. Also the 7 is still a touch too big. Hoping I stick with SE as the 400 price tag is easy to live with.

    Now I've got to sell my 6s+ and hopefully I get a decent return. May have waited too long.....?

    You might lose some value but not too much.

    I was using the iPhone 6 but it died with 8 months of my 2 year contract left. I bought a 64Gb SE directly from Apple to replace it. The SE is a fantastic phone and the battery life is excellent!

    I had an iPhone 6s before, used for 6 months and my son wanted it so I went back to Android with a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. Now I'm using my brand new 64Gb Space Gray SE and I'm fascinated with its performance, great battery life and small size. My concern was the smaller screen against my big hands, but realized that I can type even faster with the default keyboard.

    Default Re: Which phone were you using before the SE?

    I came from an s7 edge, always had an android since the T-Mobile G1 but got sick and tired of having to reset every one of them after about 6 months because they all got so slow.

    I've often heard that this never really happens with apples phones so I took the plunge and got myself a SE spaghetti gray about a month ago, thought at the start that it was far too small but now I absolutely love it, perfect for one hand use

    Although I wish there was a clear cache option like on Android as some of the apps (Spotify and Google Plus I'm looking at you!) can get absolutely huge and there appears to be no way of fixing it apart from deleting and reinstalling the app itself

    I was using a space gray 128GB 6s.

    I preferred the size.

    Nope! I wish I had 128GB, but I am managing the space well.

    I'm not using one, but my boyfriend got a 16GB space gray SE in August. Before that, he was using a 16GB silver iPhone 5s. He got the SE because his 5s' screen died. I think a dog at his workplace peed on it, LMAO (he's a vet technician)!

    Hi, I've been using an iPhone 6 for just over 2 years now. Picked up an SE this weekend as I missed the smaller form. Found it to be a decent upgrade from the 6. Feels a lot snappier, just hoping I'll notice an improvement on the battery front over the next few days.

    I use my phone a lot, but will be getting an iPad pro for Christmas and have tethering allowed on my service plan, just feels right going back to the smaller, more portable phone.

    What´s your opinion about the Z3 compact, though?

    Default Re: Which phone were you using before the SE?

    Hi

    1) Lumia 640, before that Lumia 635 and 520
    2) Unsatisfied with Windows 10 mobile (so many bugs and crashes) and the lack of apps started to bother me, plus the apps weren't as good quality as they could be.
    3) I'm loving my SE, but coming from the 5 inch screen of the 640 the SEs screen is tiny, even if much more comfortable to hold. Also I got the 16Gb version so space is a premium, but as long as I don't go crazy with apps I should be fine, and I don't use it for music. Will eventually upgrade to either a 7 or whatever comes out next

    Default Re: Which phone were you using before the SE?

    1) What phone were you using before the SE?
    I try a lot of phones as a hobby, so this doesn't apply to me. But my favourites has always been compact phone. iPhone 5s, Z3 compact, and even the Galaxy Alpha. Right now I have a Moto x 2013 as a spare too and it's pretty great still (just slightly bigger than the iPhone SE in terms of size, but has a 4.7" screen)

    2) Why did you decide to get the SE?
    Size. I need to use the phone one handed a lot, and I don't like carrying a bulky phone around. Also this is pretty much the most powerful compact phone you can buy still.

    3) Any regrets?
    Not really. I wished the display was better. It's noticeably worse compared to something like the iPhone 6, but other than that I'm pretty happy with it. Good battery life. Good performance, decent camera.

    Came from Nexus 4, got an SE for work. Really liking it for far, it completed my trifecta since I also have a 2015 Air and an iPad mini 2. Kinda wish I went for the 6S for the 3D Touch but I'm really impressed by Touch ID and Apple Pay. Having 2 gb ram doesn't hurt either although the keyboard took a little getting used to and the screen isn't perfect.

    Thats a great question and it has a story attached but i may write out that whole long thing later This is from my dad and not me but it's a fairly weird one that I'm sure many haven't seen haha.

    Sony Ericsson W910i
    Blackberry Bold 8900
    Blackberry Tourch 9810
    Blackberry Bold 8900 (Again)
    iPhone SE - 64GB

    He finally found his way onto the right track. Been lost for many years lol. He wanted the SE because of the form factor. It's nice and small and easy for him to carry around next to his wallet. He also liked the reviews of the battery life, performance and camera. He has had no regrets so far. Absolutely loves it and was well worth every cent.
