Glancing at it sitting on the sofa it could be 2012 again. I liked it for about 3 days then something changed. I'm not sure why I bought it only that I'd never bought a new iPhone before; I had a second-hand 5 and quite liked it at the time. I know it's powerful and has a great camera but I prefer my budget Xperia XA (although there wasn't a huge difference in price - £119) although I did waste £30 on the midnight-blue leather case, so the SE set me back £389. I bought the Sony the day after purchasing the iPhone on impulse and, 10 days in, I know which one bores me. But it's strange - I love my iPad Mini 4 even though it only has the A8. I prefer the Sony for it's looks, elegance, bezel-free (almost) screen at the sides - it's modern. At least I'll get a good price on the SE if and when I can be bothered selling it. Will keep it for now as a beater. The Sony has a gold case on - it's even narrower naked. This is coming from an Xperia Z3 Compact which fell off my hospital bed one too many mornings, and a 5.5" Ulefone Power I moved on because of its audio and BT issues. I always have 2 phones but have never taken a dislike to a new one quite so quickly.
