This will sell well in my country. It is a third world country, the Philippines. Because we have a lot of social climber here. Even though their family will get hungry, they will insist to buy this new iphone.

Why? Doesn't iphone SE makes a statement that you are too poor to afford full fledged flagship from Apple? Even worse, many peole will mistake your new iphone SE for the old obsolete junk iphone 5!

As usual two storage sizes to choose from: 16 or 64GB - Apple wants to coerce people into paying more as not many will be happy with 16GB - they wouldn't offer 32GB because too many people would choose that and where's the money in this option? This tactic is a form of bullying in my opinion. This is what Apple has become a controlling bully.

Yes, this is where Android has Apple clearly beat! 32GB with SD card is obviously the best option, but never available in Apple world!

With an iPhone with all of my music in the cloud as well as my phones and only having the important apps like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.. there is heaps of room. Its also a great phone for employees because it means they cant download and full up the phone with game apps limiting the use for the phone to business (calling, texting, emails, facebook etc) The only crap is the price difference between the models My parents for example xD they have a S6 and a Note.... they don't even use 8GB.. there is still a large market of there who can live happily with 16 with no problems because they aren't power uses like most here.

Good looking mini phone. But I'd only use it for the camera and music player. The front facing camera tho...

These will sell, price is good and is what the 6s should be priced at in my opinion

I am puzzled about the title? it claims "The most powerful super mini" But this is not at all true, it then only compares it to other iphones and not phones from any other manufacturer so how can it be claimed "The most powerful super mini"? Then there is a link saying "Here's how small the 4-inch munchkin is compared to its rivals" but the link only compares its size to other phones, not the performance. To say the title is misleading would be a huge understatement.

because no phone in that size will outdo it in real world testing. Not synthetics.

iPhone SE is so small, 6S meets my requirement, 6S Plus may fits perfectly in my hand as i used both hand to hold and operate.
