Verizon has the deals📱:Get an iPhone 7 Plus for $5 a month
  1. ShaneBunting's Avatar
    There's a lot of rumours about the SE 2 but as someone whose currently enjoying their current iPhone SE I've contemplated next time around going to an 8 Plus or (it's successor). Though I must admit I am never giving the iPhone SE enough credit for just how much of a punch it packs for the price. The more I think of it, the more I come to the conclusion that it's possibly the best value way to own a current iPhone even if it does lag a bit behind on the big features of the year.

    How many of you plan to move on to the next SE or plan to step up to a more pricey iPhone next?

    It is a great phone that I really liked but I couldn't stick with it because of the front camera. I went to the 7 a few months ago and I miss the size of the SE daily.

    And if you go to the X ... It's a full screen 7 (the total size of the device)


    I don't mind the size of the SE; if another variant returns so will I (currently have my SE as a spare)

    I have heard this but I also heard that it is hard to use one handed which makes me not want it. I'm jealous of your spare SE, as I still follow the community on Reddit. I got another device for reading and it kind of makes me want to go back to the SE since it's so big but that camera though. I'll love a SE 2 so bad though.

    One handed use is pretty simple... With or without the apple silicone case I have ...

    Can only hope for an SE2 but I think it's highly unlikely at this point

    The X did cost a pretty penny in my country though .... Practically 1350 USD

    I was a hold out and waited for an SE2 but ended up getting the X and in my opinion it’s the best upgrade coming from the SE

    The size is easy to get use too and you get a magnificent screen for your money

    The SE is my first I phone and the size was the reason I bought it, it has been reliable, it’s eighteen months old and battery life is still at 100%, a brilliant little phone, as it’s reported there will not be a SE2 I will buy another one as backup while still available.

    I'll say it everytime ... The 5/5S/SE was/is a timeless design

    I am using the 5S for the last 4 years and I am really satisfied with the output it gave me, since the form factor and the headphone jack matter to me a lot I think I would be happy to get a SE and it will still last me a couple of years with ease.

    The battery on my SE has finally dropped to 86%. Anything to worry about? It will still be some time before it needs replacing? At what point do you suggest replacing it?

    Thanks

    Somewhere from mid November to mid December. From January 1st, battery replacement will cost $79 again, instead of the $29 it costs now till end of the year.

    How do you know? Just go to Apple and ask for a replacement. They also have loosened the rules for battery replacement.

    Well according to what you just posted it's for iPhone 6 and later. I'm thinking it means the 6 and going back towards the 5?

    It means 6 and 6s and 7 and X

    Why would an X need a new battery? I thought all of this battery stuff came when Apple admitted to wrong doings with the battery on earlier models? I will call Apple to verify.

    Edit; After reading the entire Apple customer message, it is my understanding that the $29 battery replacement is for the 6 and "older" models until December 2018.

    That would make sense.

    It doesn’t exclude the X from the deal. I agree with you that it wouldn’t make sense, but that’s a story for another day.
