It's pretty interesting right! I think we'll be suprised when these phones still work well a year into no updates. Web content won't massively change (it's not like when youtube went from flash to html5, I can't see some revolution happening like that) so the 6s+ will be fine. The experience between my 6s+ and X is marginal tbh, like you found with the SE. It's amazing what marketing can do, people really are convinced that something like an X or an XR is miiiles ahead of a 6s+, sure on paper it looks like it, but when you have them in your hand and just flick through apps...It's so subtle, and suddenly the extra £300 - £500 feels a lot more poignant.
If she’s coming from a 4 this will be a big change for her a nice little upgrade. for us SE will be good for awhile I got the white 128gb £479 but it came with free beats x headphones from three which I sold yesterday £45 and got £15 cash back so makes it £419 which is the price of the 64gb. I’m well happy with it
True, and the lifespan is probably 2-3 years for the 6 series before they become crippled due to updates ending.. but there is a market for these older models, and my mum is going to be well chuffed she’s still using her iPhone 4! I think the wireless charging takes the pain out of the battery life of the SE..
Indeed mate, it’s like i said tho as times goes on probably with iOS 14 which the 6s is apparently getting you’ll notice it more as more features come in that demand more power and ram. SE for the money is incredible value I’ve just sent my iPhone 11 back! for a full refund amazon de. saved over £200 for pretty much the same experience same chip. downsides are smaller screen but can be seen as an advantage to many! Battery is lots smaller and you can tell! can just about get a day with medium usage
Just bought the new SE and I’m passing my 6S (not plus) to my mother.. so I have them side by side atm, and honestly there’s not much in it. The SE does feel a little bit snappier, but barely noticeable for the type of stuff she’ll be doing. It’s certainly not four times better, unlike the cost. A heavy user who wants to play games and videos would benefit from the newer tech. The + version is ofc better still than the 6S, which like the SE doesn’t have a high capacity battery.
