I’ve been using an Android phone for the last couple of years, after my old iPhone 4S got too long in the tooth, but it hasn’t been an easy experience. While I like some aspects of Android, like the way that notifications are handled, others have annoyed me.
Then, about a week ago, I had a scare when my phone got itself into a reboot loop and was unusable for most of the day. (It eventually came back to life, but not before scaring the bejesus out of me!) So I decided that I’d better get another phone in case this one was on its way out. (It’s a Lenovo PHAB2. Yes, I’m cheap.)
I didn’t want to blow a load of cash on the latest phone tech, and I’m wary of springing for another Android phone, so I had a look around to see what I could get in the way of fairly recent iPhones. As it happened, I found some refurbished iPhone SEs going for a song, so I grabbed one.
I’d not realised just how small it was until I got it and put it next to the Lenovo. As it’s a 16GB model I won’t be loading it up with apps, but that’s OK because I have an iPad Mini that already handles most of my mobile needs at home.
I’m under no illusions about the lifespan of this iPhone, and the limitations it has, but I have to admit that it does feel good to have a pocketable phone once more! It does what I need of it with aplomb, and that’s what really matters. And I can use it with one hand.
Any others out there still loving their little iPhones?
