- 27 Sep 2023
this seems like the most doably priced phone in the apple series for its value.

I know that we don't share same tastes but seriously how do you consider this phone is "good" when the only good thing is the chip but most users don't gonna use full potential due the terrible 4.7 inches LCD HD 60hz screen combined with a battery that won't last half of a day, and that is at launch, I can't imagine how bad will be the battery in a couple of years that is the time that some users will have the phone.
Also base storage is 64gb... pls, tell me how would you use such terrible device in 2026
You really need to be an Apple fanboy because the specs are like 100$ phone while being selled at 400$ in USA and 600$ in the rest of the countries

Anonymous, 23 Aug 2023Ios17 kill its battery 😂😂The iOS17 did NOT kill the battery in my iPhone SE3. Please try and switch off Background App Refresh by going to Settings>General>Background App Refresh. Also switch off WiFi if you are not within a WiFi hotspot area. If you leave the WiFi on, the battery drains while the phone searches for a WiFi signal to connect to. Good luck.

Daemon Targaryen, 16 Sep 2023SE3 has become my favorite iPhone of all-time. I just went ... moreThanks. As a user and owner of the iPhone SE3, I fully concur with the views expressed by you. I shared similar views about the battery efficiency, portability, functionality of the fingerprint reader, turbo-fast performance, etc. For me, the iPhone SE3 is the very best of the best compact phones on the market since it was launched. I hope that Apple will maintain the production of this particular device.

SE3 has become my favorite iPhone of all-time. I just went back using it as my daily driver because while I prefer Android, I actually want to bombard gig apps on my iPhone.
Stupid Spectrum Mobile. It wasn't free for a year. It only qualifies for one per account and my mother already took it. So I canceled my line 3 days ago and went back using my AT&T prepaid as my main line which is still FREE. At least Spectrum won't charge me $30.
For 3 days, I was using my Pixel 3 as my daily. I love the thing and will try to keep it alive for as long as possible as that's the one I upload all my movies and TV shows onto Google Photos, but I ended up missing my SE3 because the battery life is much better on it.
Pixel 3 has a battery over 2800 mAh. SE3 is at 1918 which also looks like that's the year it was released. Give me the smaller but more efficient battery. Won't drain my power banks as fast with the lower mAh. I don't care if it looks outdated. I prefer Touch ID, rounded sides, and sub-150g weight.
It's such a maligned iPhone, and yet, I find it the most ideal iPhone I've ever owned. And I owned the iPhone 2G, 3G, 4, 4S twice, 5, SE1 twice, 7 twice, X, and 12 mini. I hated when the iPhone 12s came out and Apple returned to the flatter sides. At least with the 4s and 5s, they were very narrow.
I'm glad Adam enjoys the SE3 too. He's one of the rare few. They make perfect trade-in phones although carriers are catching on and lowering their trade-in value. But even if you kept it because you enjoy it, they feel so nice to hold. My stepdad recently caught covid, so I'm wearing a mask. No worries unlocking it.
If they break, they're so cheap to replace. Cheaper battery replacement. Probably the last, most repairable iPhone since the housing for them are so common. It's the final model with Touch ID and home button. Yeah, it only has 60 Hz and one camera. I don't care about any of that.
People keep praising the SE1 but the SE3 is so much better than it and the SE2. Imagine it has the same A15 chip as the iPhone 13s and non-Pro 14s and you can get them in excellent condition for under $200. I got mine for $150 last year in October and it was practically new.
Y'all can have your Face ID iPhone 13 minis with the tall aspect ratios and expensive repairs if Face ID breaks. I couldn't care less if the SE4 looks like it or the 14s with Dynamic Island. I hate those flat sides and a TPU case didn't make them more comfortable. And I prefer opening the Control Center by sliding up.
SE3 is practical, efficient, repairable, inexpensive, and comfortable to hold
Has the 16:9 aspect ratio which is great for watching movies and TV shows. And no exiting an app like Netflix by toggling with the volume/brightness going up or down. The last of its iPhone kind. And the best of its kind for my usage case.
I'm going to use this iPhone for at least 10 years. I want $0 on my phone bill for the rest of my life and I will never finance a phone ever again. And if this SE3 breaks on me or I lose it, I'll buy another one for dirt cheap. My PSP 2000 model is 15-years-old and still works perfectly.
SE3 is like the Hondas and Toyotas of iPhone. Reliable and cheap to fix.

Honestly, I love it!
The fact that this still looks like a 2017 Phone is something I've been looking for in a phone for a long time, and when I couldn't find a non-outdated android that was still built like this, I decided to goo with Apple for a change.
And so far I'm satisfied, the resolution of the screen is good, the single camera takes good photos and the home button is something I'm really gonna miss when this phone becomes too old.
What I don't like is the fact that it is a single camera, an ultrawide lens is something that would do good for this phone. Also, a non-glass back would also be nice.
Overall, I won't permanently switch anytime soon, if there will be no android releases that come close to this.
- my last good iphone

gave iphone a chance again, having loved 4s but couldn't stand ios back then.
i don't care about bezels, not having them on previous (android) phones had little impact on my life. i really don't care how old the rest of this phone is. all previous androids i used had worse camera. screen is perfect size. making it a perfect pocket smartphone. i can't make out the pixels, couldn't care less. and no, my hands aren't small, they're 21cm long, aka huge. i love touch id! wouldn't have gotten the phone otherwise. anyways, seems like i will be going back to android once this dies and new ones won't be manufactured anymore. i finish my day with over 50% of battery. so, if you don't live on your phone, dislike phablets, and require touch id - this is could be the last best iphone for you.

This phone is a beast! AnTuTu Benchmark V10.0.1 result is 1173274!!! Like what?!
I also installed the iOS17 Beta, and the battery performance increased significantly... I'm glad I purchased this last SE series from Apple :)

The gap between flagships and midrange phones only gets wider, An a15 chip is nice but a 2018 mah battery seriously
