Calling iPhone se users to put their thoughts on the new iPhone se after one month of usage + which color you buy.let us know if it's a hit or miss
Honestly not as good as everyone was making it out to be. Maybe I just had higher standards than I should because of that.Would also be interested to hear folks' day to day battery life - i.e. not a screenshot but impressions on how it fits into your usage patterns.
Where did you find the Space Grey in Belgium? Can't find it anywhere, hahaBought an SE 64GB Space Gray. I'm coming from a 5 so keep that in mind.
Love the style it has just loving it. Touch ID gets my print 80% of the time I guess so that's good.
The back camera is great! Getting some real good looking photos of it. The front camera is another story though.. It's not bad but not good either certainly in low light conditions. The phone responds very quickly no lag or whatsoever. The screen size is great the resolution is in my opinion average. Battery life is great coming from a 5 that lasted max. 4-5 hours with the SE I get 8-9 hours occasionally 10 hours with light usage (no mobile data, low power mode used,...). My general usage: Messages, Safari, some light gaming, social media, taking quite a lot of photos. But also the price is competitive in EU it sells for 589 EUR for the 64 GB version.
Call quality on lte is midrange, I have used androids who cost about 130€ who gave much better call quality on 3G. But I knew this before, iPhones have always been bad on voice calls, beginning with the first iPhone up until today.
Interesting. Have you ever made a cell call using the cell service rather than the data service? Both LTE and 3G are data, so calls using either would be VOIP calls rather than cell calls. Or do you only make VOIP calls on your cell phone?
If you are in fact using your cell service, LTE or 3G have nothing to do with the quality of your calls.
What do you mean?
Maybe I wasn't precise enough, I'm not talking about connection quality, but more about voice and sound quality.
On other phones I used the same SIM card and network and it sounded much better. Also the speaker seemed capable of higher volumes than the se does.
But I know this from my 4s and from the iPhones of a friend, who had all versions so far.
Ah, ok....seems like you are commenting on the call quality of the cell service after all, not VOIP over LTE or 3G. No worries.....just a small correction in that LTE or 3G had nothing to do with it.....you are just saying that in your experience cell calls sound better over Android than iPhones using the same cell network.
I'm in Germany too but never noticed a lower sound quality or anything that bothered me during phone calls. Had some androids before I went to iOS.Not over android, but on other hardware. Apple is simply not good on the hardware side when it comes to call quality.
It has become a bit better with the 6 series, but they never were superior in that field.
They are great in design, and for most people that is enough. But besides anything visual it does not play in the top field.
I like my se, but for some people a phone is mainly for calls and to be fair, they should know the downsides when paying so much.
It's not so bad that you can't use it, but if I would do many calls a day, an iPhone wouldn't be my first choice.
I can't speak for foreign networks but I am in Germany at the moment and the experience above is when using iPhones here. Could be it's different in other countries and different networks.
Just got mine yesterday, and battery life is decent. Performance wise it is a HUGE upgrade over my boat anchor 6+. I wished Apple would've upgraded the screen though, that is a big downgrade to what I'm use to.
