Jesus, I hate the constant "My phone is better than yours" bashing between Android and Apple users and now it even happens between Apple users? Please grow up guys!
Steve Jobs was right, in that consumers are idiots and they should only make one product in one size. Apple fans were all getting along great until the 6 and 6+ came out, and then people split up and started hating on the other phone model.

Anyone who bashes anyone else for their choice of a device is an immature person. Who care what's someone else uses!?!
Half the people on this forum do. Many buy iPhones because they are a status symbol, who associate android to the cheap and poor.

I've noticed that some SE owners love to mention that they have a SE in some threads as if it's the newest iPhone. This thread is about the iPhone 7 Pro.

I know these are just rumors (all in fun, right?), but there are too many (rumors) claiming the iPhone 7 will have a similar form factor as the current 6. However, it is within the iPhone 8, that Apple will redesign. I know I know, I won't be waiting that long for it (just saying). Anyway, I'm gearing myself to like this iPhone 7. It's time to upgrade my 5S ( still keeping my 6+though).

IDK. That dual camera bump is even fuglier than the current single one on the 6s. If that's the way they go I may have to reconsider my upgrade.
Yes, but with apple going thinner, I can't seem them putting a camera that won't have the bump. I'm not worried in it visually looking bad, Apple does a great job and making the phone look great.

True.

True. Thats why iPhone SE looks the best and performs like a beast.

Mike, based on past experience (the 6/6+, 6s/6s+) I can't agree. I still think the camera bump on my 6s+ is fugly and I doubt Apple will make it look any better with dual cameras.

I get the whole thinness thing. I'm just not a fan so far of how they've resolved the look of it.

And for those who will suggest that I slap a case on the phone and therefore hide this blemish, know right now - I don't do cases. ;)

So Apple will unveil 3 iPhones in September? i think it's more possible that they will reveal the iPhone 7 4.7" and call the 5.5" the iPhone 7 Pro (or iPhone Pro). if what's added is the dual camera it makes more sense to do that with the 5.5" than it does creating a separate phone just for the dual camera feature.

I'm also not convinced we will see the smart connector on the iPhone.

In the PC/Mac days of old, I was a happy warrior, taking the PC side, but it was in ignorance, as I never used a Mac for more than a few minutes.
After getting a Mac, and hating it for a month, I love it.

That is when I realized that it's a tool thing. You don't use a hammer where a screwdriver will do, or a tape measure when you need a socket wrench. You use the right tool for the job.

So, when someone says they love their Android, good for them! If someone loves their 6SE, and it works for them, great! Mrs. thequik loves her 6S, and I love my 6+, and 2 of my kids have 6S+ phones, because they work for us.

In the end, when I'm on my death bed, I'm probably not going to be thinking, "Man, I should have gone to war over the new Chinese phone that Fignuts on Macrumors was so proud of in 2017."

What will they use the smart connector for? Cannot think of any use for it that they can't potentially use the Lightning port for.

What does that have anything to do with you (and like-minded individuals) who take a swipe at SE owners any chance they get.

Really...what do you care so much if they elect to buy a SE as opposed to a 6/6s?

Lay off already...

Even with that clarification, his comment still hits the mark. ;)
Right…

And Apple didn't have the 12" PowerBook G4, the 15" PowerBook G4 and the 17" PowerBook G4 all while Steve was alive. Nor did Apple have the Mac Mini, two different sizes of the iMac and also there was no difference in size with the MacBook Pros and the Airs.

Lets not forget about the iPod Nanos, the iPod Shuffles and the iPods Touches.

Steve was dead long before all that happened I'm sure! ;)

I don't care, but the hundreds of posts I've read from others here say many do see the iPhone as a status symbol.

That's probably why they want a design change so everyone they meet or see in the street know that they have the latest iPhone. To me it doesn't matter I like the current design, adding a dual camera to it would be great, maybe 256GB option as well.
