The 9to5Mac editor Ben Lovejoy considers to get an iPhone SE. He loves the small form factor for better pocket-ability, the state-of-the-art performance and he likes the flat-sided design.
He glances over the fact that Apple did not move a finger to update a 3 year old design. There would have been many opportunities to make a new small iPhone that has a forward design that breaks through the mold. Instead Apple decided to go with an old design. I hate that about the iPhone SE.
Walt Mossberg wrote today in a column on The Verge that he accepts the iPhone SE from a business stand point, but is a disappointment in terms of innovation. He says: "The iPhone 7 had better be spectacular" I totally agree with that.
Apple needs to innovate leap and bounds with the iPhone 7 to make me forget about the lame iPhone SE.
The first iPhone 7 rumors have me though already concerned. The design is according to leaked schematics is very close to the iPhone 6S. Has Jony Ive left the company?
The iPhone SE goes up for pre-order on March 24 and will start shipping on March 31. The iPhone SE starts at $399, which is lower than expected.
The iPhone SE offers state-of-the-art performance with the same 64-bit A9 chip offered in iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus for blazing fast speeds, longer battery life, faster wireless, a 12-megapixel iSight camera featuring Live Photos and 4K video, and Touch ID with Apple Pay. iPhone SE also includes more LTE bands for better worldwide roaming and supports Voice over LTE and Wi-Fi calling for high-quality wide-band calls.
