Reviews Praise iPhone SE for Price and Lengthy Battery Life

Quite a few reviews of the new 4-inch iPhone SE have sprung up within the last few days, and there is common consensus that the handset’s advanced specs but low price make it a winner.

The Wall Street Journal particularly singles out the battery life – enthusing that, in a lab test, “the SE lasted 10 hours – more than two hours longer than both the iPhone 6S and iPhone 5S, and nearly three hours longer than the Galaxy S7.”

Meanwhile, Mashable cites the price, which starts at $399, as possibly the biggest plus point, with reviewer Christina Warren commenting: “I really can’t underscore how well I think this product will do, simply based on its price.”

Many other reviews have been summarized by MacRumors – and you can also pick up the latest issue of AppleMagazine to learn more about why the iPhone SE could have surprisingly widespread appeal.
