Do you enjoy the 4 inch screen of the SE?

    I have iPhone 6 and I like to watch TV series and movies on it sometimes.
    The thing is, I would very much prefer a phone that I can use with one hand for general tasks.
    For those of you who made that move, do you enjoy watching videos on the SE or is it a totally different experience?

    It's totally different. For your use case I would not recommend it. IPhone SE is more for people that have an IPad @ home and only use the phone as a phone and quick on the go information device.

    Unless you have a 6S plus, the experience of watching a movie on your phone will be totally different then on your laptop/desktop/iPad.

    For short videos/YouTube stuff...it's fine, I think on a 4" screen. But I would think twice to watch tv shows on my 6s, even.

    Save that for your Mini/full size iPad .

    Not really, but that's what I have my Air 2 for.

    What is it with these brand new members asking such ridiculous questions...you have an iPhone 6 and like to watch videos on it, so your not a candidate for the SE...why make a post about it, can't you just use your iPhone 6 and be happy? Stop worrying about how others are using the SE.

    I freak out when the Apple Geek hands me their tiny little phone to type in my email address. Can not imagine watching TV and movies on it.:confused:

    I have no problem with watching a movie on my SE, but sure, a 60" would be better, but it won't fit in my pocket.

    I know I'm setting myself up for abuse, but every time I see a thread about watching movies on one's phone, I just shake my head in amazement. I would never, ever, consider watching a movie on my phone, any more than I would consider watching a movie through a telescope. I just find it astounding that people do this (and I know that they do). But...

    It's crazy to see how the tech world grows and adapts to the new products that are released.

    Just a few years ago we all were content using 4 inch screens. Now I don't think I could go back from my 6s Plus.

    Who asked you to? I get it, you think it's stupid, that's OK.

    Sometimes at lunch, I just slap on the old headphones and escape reality for a while. It's not perfect.......but it's pretty nice, as I have an UDP.

    While I loved the size of the SE and how I could toss it in my pocket and forget about it, I have grown accustomed to the 4.7" screen. I ended up selling the SE after using it over a weekend and went back to my 6s. I really prefer the keyboard on the 4.7" 6/6s than I do the 4" screen. Makes texting much easier (for me at least).

    If you are taking about watching movies, what is the difference between watching on a 6S plus and watching on an SE while holding it a little closer to your face?

    I prefer to watch movies on my 4K. But there are times where I watch movies on my phone, like if I'm on a long family road trip (and I'm not driving) I usually break out my iPhone & fire up Netflix or see what's on iTunes. It's just a way to pass the time. Or if I'm at my job and I'm on break, I'll fire up Hulu and watch Supernatural or something

    I used to watch a lot of movies on my iPhone 5s until I got an iPad. It wasn't bad. I think Apple puts good speakers in iPhones and the screens are sharp so it didn't bother me much. It is easy to hold.
