The team’s views on the lat­est Ap­ple tech

“are you im­pre ssed by the new 4-inch iphone se?” Chris­tian’s sure the SE will be a big hit for those with age­ing iPhone mod­els.

Alex says…

Chris­tian says… There’s a huge mar­ket for 4-inch phones. They’re a bit more ‘phone-like’ than larger sizes in some senses. I al­ways pre­ferred the back of the 5/5s than the 6 by a mile! I felt the same way un­til I got a 6 Plus, which I fell in with al­most in­stantly. Now that I’ve been us­ing it for so long, I can’t imag­ine go­ing back to a smaller iPhone… ever!! I never warmed to the Plus, but as a 6s user it might be dif­fi­cult to do all my tasks as ef­fec­tively on a 4-inch screen. What great specs and what a great price, though! 12MP cam­era, 4K video record­ing and A9/M9 pro­ces­sors… wow!

I was re­ally pleased to see Ap­ple kit it out with de­cent specs. Aside from the styling, it’s ba­si­cally a 6s in a smaller pack­age, so that should se­ri­ously ap­peal to fans of smaller de­vices… al­though I’ll stick with my 6 Plus for now. It’s the per­fect up­grade for many on older iPhones, but with such great specs at the en­try level, has Ap­ple evened out the iPhone line-up too much now? That’s a risk, and it’s cer­tainly con­fus­ing hav­ing so many dif­fer­ent iPhone mod­els. But on the plus side, you don’t need to com­pro­mise on per­for­mance if you want a smaller iPhone any more, and that’s a re­ally good thing.
