    A small iPhone with the heart of a big one? It’s true, and it’s a pretty decent package, even if it took Apple long enough. Read more

    • Apple’s original winning size returns to centre stage, Great spec upgrade, making the iPhone SE faster than the still available iPhone 6, All-day battery life, Great camera, Includes a fingerprint reader, Supports the same accessories as the iPhone 5 and 5S… because it’s the same phone chass...
    • Small screen (in comparison to what else is out there today), Front-facing camera is old and low resolution (again, in comparison to what else is out there today), No force-touch/3D touch screen

Initially I was disappointed, because I just wanted a phone to make calls and text messages, and it wasn't immediately obvious how to do either with this "phone". I already had an iPad and this seemed to be just a mini version. Read more
