Jimmy Kimmel tricks Apple fans who think they are looking at the new iPhone SE

Jimmy Kimmel tricks Apple fans who think they are looking at the new iPhone SE
We've seen Jimmy Kimmel trick random strangers on the street by telling them that a $20 Casio timepiece was the Apple Watch. On the heels of yesterday's introduction of the Apple iPhone SE, Kimmel and his crew decided to find out if consumers could tell the difference between the two 4-inch models. With two phones in hand, a film crew roamed the streets and asked a few people if they could compare the Apple iPhone SE with the Apple iPhone 5s.

That seems straightforward enough except for one important piece of information. Both phones happen to be the Apple iPhone 5s. The first person interviewed holds the iPhone 5s in his hands and receives the second one with the other hand. Believing it to be the new iPhone SE, he gives it a big smile. "Nice," he says, and then points out that it is a little heavier than the iPhone 5s.

Another person says that the new model seems smaller. Others point out the "clearer" and sharper screen. One confused woman was trying to say that the battery life was improved. How she could tell that from holding the phone for a few seconds is beyond us. And of course, both phones are exactly the same anyway. One guy even takes note of the new buttons (!) on the iPhone SE.

Once again, Jimmy Kimmel and crew give us a hilarious look at how consumers have become blinded by the Apple name, throwing away any common sense that they might have had.

You mean Apple fans. They can praise iPhones without sensible logic.

The SE really does have longer battery life so she wouldn't have been wrong if the phone she was holding was acually the SE.

She wasn't so she's obviously, wrong. Also, to know that for sure, one must go through the reviews or, best yet, use it for a day or two themselves. No one can know that by just holding it for a minute or two. She must have heard of it from someone, or seen the ads.

"No one can know that by just holding it for a minute or two" At least, you say a sensible fact! +1

Would take me 2 min to find the difference by going into setting/general/about. This just show how clueless many many iphone user are ( not saying all of them but... )

The funny thing is the iphone SE will have those differences they mentioned. It will be faster, ligther and so on. But "noticing" that with two identical phones points out the brainwashing that people tries to deny around here

Yet even Jimmy Kimmel doesn't know the difference in models. Listen how he twice says that they are using two identical iPhone 5 units when clearly its the 5s in the video.

Clearly? I'm not sure personally, but what are the clear differences between the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s?

Its not really "blinded" when they really have no idea what it looks like, especially when they don't sit on tech websites like ourselves every day. I would say the same applies to the "blind" people in that old 'new samsung phone' video 2 years ago.
