Apple iPhone SE Q&A: Ask us anything about the potent munchkin

After our Galaxy S7/S7 edge and LG G5 Q&A sessions proved to be quite popular among you, we decided that it will only be fair if we do this for another top-ranking device that got launched just recently. Of course, that'd be Apple's iPhone SE

In case you missed it, our review of the potent munchkin is already here. As it usually happens though, questions vital to you might have could have been left unanswered.

That's why we are giving you, our dear readers, the opportunity to ask us any questions you might have regarding the 4-inch phone with oh-so-familiar design. Post these in the comments section down below and we will do our best to answer these in a follow-up post in a couple of days. 

Without further ado, go ahead and ask us anything!

@phonearena - Is their any difference between iPhone SE and iPhone 6s specs apart from the below. Smaller screen without 3D Touch, dual domain pixels for wide viewing angles. Front Camera without Auto HDR video - is it from iPhone 5 or 5s? 1st Gen Touch ID. LTE Advanced - typically what real speed difference? Barometer. WiFi MIMO

1) Would the SE sim-free model be T-Mobile be wifi calling capable on T-Mobile, or would T-Mobile wifi calling only work on the SE T-Mobile model? 2) If one has Project Fi, would the SE be able to pull in data on a secondary Project Fi data only sim?

Since this is the only modern smart phone with a 4” screen, in which situations do you find the small screen size to be a hindrance?

Do you experience occasional slowdowns when switching between apps?

Why is the so much praised? Example it only has a 640p screen, for 2016 that is pretty crap!

The screen is 4", which results in a PPI of 326. This is what modern phones should have and the SE has it.

I clearly saw a difference in term of sharpness going from my nexus 4 (about 32X PPI) to my one plus one (401 PPI) but I didn't see much of a difference when I switched to the S7 (5XX PPI (I know it uses pentile matrices)) so neither 32X and 5XX PPI is what every modern phone should have.

For those 6s/6sp owners, how does it feel to use an iPhone that doesn't have 3D touch? I for one could never see myself going back to a phone that doesn't have a force touch display.

How do the PA Authors feel about the SE having the same design as the iP5 did 4 years ago, do you think Apple should have changed it?

Does the SE heat up more than the 6s because of it's small size?

The headphone audio output seems to be considerably low for SE as opposed to the other iphones that we have seen so far (.47 for SE,1 for 5S,.98 for 6S) ,is it really that bad?? This to me is a real deal breaker ,I like my music loud and this kind of seems very low ,can you please confirm on this?

This will take me straight to the 6s. I was bummed when I saw the info in the review. Anyway, waiting for the GSM Arena review too, and if this info is the same I will go for the older model even though I loath the bigger display.

Thanks Mate,checked the gsmarena review.The above average loudness doesnt cut it for me :) ,seems like I am going to hold on to my 5S a little longer that I thought.

Does the iPhone SE feature the same NVMe storage found in the iPhone 6s?

Why are fandroids getting so upset about this phone?

Why only 8.8 rating on your review?!? It is apple product and deserves 9.5 minimum!!!

Is its camera good enough to replace my Lumia 930 ?

8. Wiencon

Posts: 2278; Member since: Aug 06, 2014

I think it's on same level but you might miss awesome audio that 930 captures, iPhone mics are horrible

Thanks for your article on how to insert a sim into the iPhone 6S, but how do you insert the sim in this phone?

Pry open the back with a crowbar, insert the sim and glue it back.

Why the heck does this look much better than the ugly 6/6S? LOL On to the serious part: How does it feel using a 4" screened phone after coming from an iPhone 6/6s? Also how's gaming on it?
