    After being released for more than 2 years, how is your SE holding up?

    I personally got mine last December 2016 and been using it daily since. It has always been in a case but without a screen protector and so far it held up very well. Just a few unnoticeable hairline scratches but does not bother me at all. Speed wise i cannot notice any slow down. It’s still plenty fast. And battery life still lasts a full day of moderate use and a day and a half on light usage (battery health at 88%). I initially planned on using it for just 2 years (my usual phone cycle) but i cant see myself upgrading just yet. Barring any hardware issues, this can easily be used for another year or two.

    Mine is holding up pretty well. I’ve had it for almost 2 years. I had the battery replaced 6 months ago and it’s at 95% health. Body is fine. It’s only been on a thin transparent case.

    Mine is still going strong. If a new 4” phone is released I might upgrade. But I have no intention of increasing my screen size.

    I recently purchased mine, coming from a Note 8, it’s good to be back again at this small device.

    Hopefully it will last for a long time.

    It looks like the SE will be the last small phone Apple offers. With the new iPhones just around the corner, it certainly looks like the SE is truly ‘EOL’ (end of life).

    Well, the latest news wrecks that plan, and for me too.

    I have had my SE since 2nd October 2016 nearly two years, and it has been excellent and have updated it to IOS 12 and no problems, battery Condition is at 100% in battery section and it lasts a full day of my use, sadly the SE is no more.

    Mine is just about 1-1/2 years old. 98% battery health. Always been in an Otterbox case with tempered glass screen protector. In mint condition. I have no desire to “upgrade.”

    I switched from an iPhone X to the SE and it is so good to be back to the smaller form factor and the use of one hand again. I got a great deal on a brand new 64gb gold color SE from OfferUp. Everything is working and this little guy is fast with iOS 12.01
