Apple iPhone SE unboxing and first look

The new old iPhone, aka the iPhone SE, has arrived in our office and we rush to unbox it and give you a first glimpse at the only 4" modern phone on the market. 

The iPhone SE features the old iPhone 5s design, but on the inside it's a brand new beast, on par with the iPhone 6s with its cutting-edge Apple A9 system chip and new 12MP camera with 4K video and support for the cool Live Photos.

Stay tuned for our full Apple iPhone SE review coming up in the next few days, but for starters, take a look at our unboxing of the handset, as well as at some first hand impressions.
