After a very long period of thinking, considering and compar

After a very long period of thinking, considering and comparing a lot of different phones, I have made the decision to switch from android to iPhone. I'm coming off a Samsung galaxy note 9, and just picked up the IPhone SE 2020 128gb. Because i don't know if I'm going to like it, i have chosen the cheapest iPhone (ok, not the 64gb version but the 128gb) so when i don't like it, it haven't cost me a huge amount of money. As the ecosystem is the same as the high end models iphone 11. I will have to get used not to have a stylus anymore, and a lot smaller size screen, I hope I made the right decision...

Of course you did. First, any iPhone is a good decision. Second, the SE is the most portable and pocket size. It fits just right in your hand.

Iphone XS is the best in the market

Sounds like you didn’t want it in the first place. Just here for attention?

nope, i actually took several weeks to think about it, and to consider / compare different phones. I didnt want to spend over a €1.000,- for a phone anymore. With half the price the SE is the best quality phone for its price compared to others

That’s a massive jump to be honest
From giant phone to tiny phone
From a massive screen to a tiny one
From all day battery to a pretty average battery life
From multiple cameras to one camera
From a stylus to no stylus
If you don’t get in with the phone it’s probably not the phones fault as it is the polar opposite to what you had before

well, my current phone doesnt have a full day battery life anymore, so I'm used to that, and as a truck driver, i can plug it in whenever i need / want to. It is a test, to check out if i like the ecosystem, if i do get used to it, and like it, i might upgrade to a bigger iphone in the future.

I bought the SE because of the small screen, I don't like the big screen phone, I liked the SE very much

avatar
March 11, 2022, 10:33 p.m.

The SE has the same CPU as in the 11 pro. Good buy.

It's a good phone for the money. But CPU isn't the only important factor. Display and battery life are at least as important.

I already noticed battery life isn’t great, but with 30 min. On the charger it is from 20% to 80%. So that’s fine for me

While I agree those are important specs, only very specific people need the best display (edit: and honestly, the next best display is still awesome) and as far as the battery there are ways to compensate for this downfall such as a battery case or a portable battery pack.
iPhone SE is great value for the money.

I always carry a power bank with me

It already sounds like you’ve already made your decision as you stated “when I don’t like it”

let them be ashamed “when they are no longer willing to leave the Perfect Apple Land”

true true

liam does have a point it’s all bout wording now the SE is a little smaller then what I have I went from iPhone 7 Plus to iPhone XR and I like it was once a android person will never go back

avatar

Coming from a note, 9 it’s a terrible decision, maybe for the XS max !

avatar
March 11, 2022, 10:33 p.m.

I would return and get a used XR. It will be much closer to your Note 9.

well, i wanted to downsize a little bit...

SE is WAY smaller than Note 9 though. And XR will also be similar because Note 9 also doesn’t have home button

yes, note 9 does have a home button, but it is inside the screen

I mean a Physical home button....

Also I’m very sure that there is no home button under the screen

it is not physical, it is a touch button with a vibration feedback

it doesn’t matter how it works, it’s a physical button. It can be removed and replaced. The home ‘button’ on note 9 is only software.

Why would you buy a brand new phone if you weren’t sure you were gonna like it? You could have got a used 7 or even a 6s for 1/3 the price and it would tell you everything you need to know about the iPhone and if you wanted to switch. You sir made a terrible mistake lol

I don’t like second hand stuff, it might not be functioning as new, I might think it’s crap...

Long time Android user here (pixel XI, nexus 6p, nexus 5 and a bunch of cheap models all the way to the htc dream. Yeah that’s right. I’m OG!
) and couldn’t be happier i switched. After 10 minutes of being impressed by how smooth everything is and getting used to the UI it dawned on me : this is how all smart phones should feel. This is a true smartphone experience

you sir have made the right decision!

avatar

Well you can buy universal stylus from amazon that works on all phones

you can’t compare that kind of stylus to the notes stylus mate

Agree thats why i keep note 10+ along with my iphone xs

Want to switch to ios too

avatar
March 11, 2022, 10:33 p.m.

I have had the SE 2020 for several months. It’s powerful, has a great camera, loaded with features, gets upgraded frequently and is just the right size. If I wanted a larger footprint I’d strap an IPad to my hip

A lot of what makes iPhones better is just better apps. In my particular line of work there are so many good apps that aren’t available on Android

that’s not a reason often cited in all the iOS vs Android flame wars I see online. I have to admit you have me curious about the details

from what I’ve seen the hardware on Samsung phones is really good. But I teach music and when I am listing apps for students to use, I always search the Google Play store to see if a specific app is available for them and a lot are not.

You should get i11

I am first going to try out the SE. if I still like it after 2 years and I want to stay with Apple I get the 12 or 13 then

My husband has the iPhone se because he is a workman and keeps smashing his phones and he’s been very impressed with both the battery life and speakers of the se:)

First of all
for yr new iPhone SE 2. Slowly and steadily you will start loving and appreciating iOS and the ease of using an iPhone. It's nice to see such transitions from Android devices users. Do install the latest iOS 14 software update in your iPhone SE 2.

You probably should have gotten the 11 the SE screen is pretty small

March 11, 2022, 10:33 p.m.

correct decision mine have the same iphone SE 2020 white 128 GB
Very compact iPhone
But the bezels is massive

I don’t care about the bezels, in fact, I like to hold my phone without covering the screen with my fingers while I’m watching a video or play games

If you bought it from Apple, you can always return it within specific time. If you ever have issues with the phone, you can always go to Apple store. Also, the best thing about Apple products is that you get software updates for the next few generations. They might still support your phone once we hit iOS 18

avatar
March 11, 2022, 10:33 p.m.

Very nice! You've made a right decision. And your former phone is great as well. What are your plans with your former ones?

ill probably keep it for my android games / apps not available on ios

you're absolutely right some games are not available on ios, kinda shame on ios' part.

avatar
March 11, 2022, 10:33 p.m.

Good job
. I would say judge the phone on the basis of internals as of now as the body of iPhone SE is a little old and then If u like it you can go for some new shape iPhone in future

yes, I don’t care about an old design, the apple design is timeless anyway.

Battery life will suck keep tat in mind

battery from my old phone is done as well... got 3 hours screen on time today, and didn't do any gaming or heavy processing stuff, still got 20% left now... i have watched some battery test video's about the SE, and i figured out that the energy usage (mah per hour) is the lowest as all other high end smartphones. So best energy efficiency. I can charge it all the time with a powerbank.

Cool jst wanted to keep ur expectations in check or ul go back to android saying iOS is not optimised with the battery

March 11, 2022, 10:33 p.m.

i strongly suggest you for iphone 11 instead of SE, but that phone is good too, but smaller screen.

avatar
March 11, 2022, 10:34 p.m.

It still the latest and with A13 and 3GB ram..similar to iPhone 11 but a bit smaller ram than iPhone 11.But anyway congrats for your getting the iPhone SE2020.

With MagSafe it charges up to 15w, non- approved MagSafe is limited to 7.5w wireless charging.

Is iPhone 11 don’t have MagSafe

avatar

All wireless chargers on any phone other than iP12 series with MagSafe are limited to 7.5w

So wireless fast charger is not fast

it’s faster than a 5w but not by much

Got my new Belkin 3 in 1 charger for the iPhone, Apple Watch

Got my new Belkin 3 in 1 charger for the iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods Pro!
1. It can charge in combination of what is shown in the picture.
2. You can charge 2 iPhones and the Apple Watch.
3. You can turn the iPhone in landscape and watch a video and it won’t interfere with the Apple Watch.
4. The stand has weight to it so it doesn’t move when placing items on to charge or taking them off.
5. IT’S AWESOME!

Charge phone in 3 hours

No, that is a 15 watt charger on that stand. It’s one of the few iPhone charging stands out there that can charge 15 watts for an iPhone. So, within an hour it will have the phone charged over 50 percent. That isn’t bad at all and it does it in a nice safe way that helps reduce the impact on battery health.

Will it work with a quad lock case on the phone?

I don't know for sure but typically it won't be for other than MagSafe .

6. I didn’t like the watch stripe colour
, sorry about that

What about the charge speed ?

15w via MagSafe for the iPhone
