    For me I'm kinda torn:
    • The battery life is seems amazing (13 hours of LTE/WiFi web browsing!)
    • The price is also amazing (only $399/$499 for 16/64gb with flagship specs!)
    • Flagship specs in a 4-inch device! (so many times android manufacturers gimp the smaller models)
    Gun to my head I'd probably have to go with the battery life (even better than the 6+/6s+ models :eek:)

    Whats the favorite part of the iPhone SE for you?

    I'd imagine the size would be one of the top ones given that that would be one of the main points behind having that version of the phone out there.

    Form factor. The 5s is probably my favorite iPhone to date.

    Hard decision, but I have to go with the battery life. I mean, Apple finally gave people what they've been asking for ages.

    How in the world does this phone match the 6s Plus's web browsing time? I want to see real-life tests to see if it's really true!

    The irony is that Apple gave the better battery life in the mid-tier phone and not its flagship phone :p

    Battery life and design. Apple really outdid themselves in the battery life department. A 4" phone that has equal performance to the iPhone 6s and gets better battery life than the larger 4.7 and 5.5 inch phones is amazing.

    Form Factor Size / Casing
    I simply love the 4" size and the 5s casing

    Most iPhone owners have not switched to the bigger size, so I'm glad Apple listened to the stats and the voices saying the 6 range is ugly.

    The price and the form factor, which is my favorite iPhone design so far. I still have my 5S and I miss using it.

    It's difficult to take pricing and specs separately. If it was just a 5s for $400 I wouldn't even be looking. They go hand in hand for me.

    Yeah exactly. But they stuffed 6S innards into this thing. I wasn't going to even bat an eyelash at this thing thinking it was just going to have an A8 in it. I was pleasantly surprised. I've been using my phone a lot more for fitness ... and my big ass 6P makes no sense in the gym or when running. I can strap the SE to my arm and not worry about it.

    It's nice that complaints about the lack of a tiny iPhone will no longer be valid.

    Off topic but do you wear your phone on a strap? I use a flip belt (when running outdoors since indoors I can just set it in the treadmill or elliptical). I've also started using a fitbit with GPS for outdoor runs when I don't feel like listening to music and would rather take in the scenery.

    People will still complain that the larger phones are more specced out lol.

    I use (well used) an arm band/strap that the phone goes into.

    I have a FitBit as well.

    Indeed.

    I highly recommend a flip belt. It changed my life. That said, a smaller device is always going good to be more comfortable when working out. The iPhone 4 was the. Our comfortable of all for me back before I had the belt.

    I have no idea what a flip belt is. Got any links? And yeah ... smaller is definitely better for work outs.

    That's actually extremely awesome. I'll probably get one in black. Thanks!
