    You must have misread the article title then. Guess we both can't read.
    What article would that be?

    Clearly didn't, spoke about why I prefer the SE and used my experience with both the flatter (6) and thicker (4s) phones to illustrate why I have this opinion.

    4S is irrelevant in this discussion, its too different to the other 2. Should have compared to iphone 5/5s if you wanted to compare.

    I didn't do a objective comparison I just spoke about my personal experience with 2 differently shaped phones which are the 4s and 6. It's very relevant to the discussion as the shape and feel of the phone is very important, and the fact that my 6 is shelfed and i'm using a *****y old 4s is a testament to how strongly some people feel about shape.

    The OP then replied that they like bigger phones as it "adds value", which is when any further comments on size were irrelevant, but you - misreading my post brought up the now irrelevant post. Killed some time at work though so thanks.

    About to get an SE tomorrow, tbh I'm more of an android person. However I want to experience some the benefits of apple without the heavy price. So the SE seems like the perfect opportunity for it

    Customer service wise I can agree as few companies relate to Apple on this (ignoring error 53...).

    Malware has never been a problem on Android. Whenever you install an app, the Play Store gives you a list of permissions (described very simply) that the app wants. People ignore this, install the app then complain about it afterwards, even though the user gave the app permission. 99%of the time it is the user's fault.

    Again, appearance is personal preference, and manufacturers throw in bloat to give a "unique experience" which is really quite annoying.

    I might be sounding like a fandroid but there are some little features insignificant to others that I can't live without (IR blaster for remote control, FM radio without Internet, multicolour notification LED, up to 256gb SD card storage, plus the vastly superior battery life and camera).

    You will get the latest updates on iOS though, as aside from the Nexus and maybe Motorola's phones, other manufacturers ditch updating their old devices after almost 2 years (flashing a custom ROM can get you the latest OS though). From my experience this makes sense for me, iOS really begins to make devices a few years old extremely laggy, as it has done with my iPad.

    My point still stands really. You simply shifted focus from the OS to the users of OS.

    An expandable memory for the iphone would be an positive addition, but it never came across as a deal breaker. I own a 64GB, and I still have all the junk pictures forwarded on whatsapp still rotting in my phone. Easily doing away with them will give me another 10 GB of hidden additional space.

    For some, the upgrade from 16GB to 64GB is such a huge price jump which doesn't really make sense.

    Having a 16GB phone makes me appreciate how important an SD card really is. I can barely keep 10 FLAC music albums, a hundred photos, plus a couple of social networking apps, and that's all my storage gone.
