After looking for a new phone for a few months, I finally decided to get an iPhone SE. This is my first iPhone, so it will take a while to get used to it.
I chose iPhone SE, see more details on apple, because is a new-ish model. The phone was released in March last year. Considering is not the latest, it was much cheaper. I’m not keen on having the latest model, so it was an easy option for me.
Why an iPhone? Because I never had one and I wanted to see the difference between a Samsung and an Apple. It might sound strange as a reason to buy a particular phone, but well, that is it. I’ve read one of Steve Jobs’s biographies, I worked on Mac (I still prefer Window laptops).
The iPhone SE has great specs. The camera takes good pictures indoors and I’m very pleased with that. Another feature I love is the Touch ID, basically I use my fingerprint to unlock the phone and I can also use it for payments. I’m yet to discover the second part, but it’s something I might use. I love the techiness of it, very James Bond-ish. It’s not new, Apple had this feature from iPhone 5s, but it’s new for me.
I use the phone as a hotspot and it works great. Even if the phone is downstairs, the internet works great upstairs too. I’m very pleased with this. Today I’m going to use Maps. By the looks of it, it will work fast. After having issues with the Samsung, I hope the iPhone will work better. There are a few things worse than hearing “GPS signal lost” when you are about to leave the motorway and head up some minor roads.
iPhone SE comes in 4 colours and I picked rose gold. I like the colour a lot, is a small phone and it gives it a girly feel. I need a case for it and hopefully I will get this weekend. It’s a matter of having the time to go to the shops to get it.
I got the phone with a contract at Three. They have great offers when it comes to data and that is the main reason I picked it. My husband has been their customer for years and he is happy with them, that was a factor in my decision too.
When it comes to data, Three is the best option. Do have a look on their website if you are considering a new supplier. I even got a discount because my husband is their customer, how nice is that.
What do you prefer, Samsung or iPhone? Or maybe another phone, let me know, I’m very interested in hearing your thoughts.
