5 Reasons to Wait for the iPhone SE 2 & 9 Reasons Not To

Don't Wait for a 4-Inch Display

Don't Wait for a 4-Inch Display

The iPhone SE's 4-inch display is a huge selling point, but it looks like the iPhone SE 2 will come with a much larger screen. 

Multiple reports, including the one from Nikkei and the one from Bloomberg, suggest that the next-gen iPhone SE will come with a 4.7-inch display mirroring the iPhone 8's size

This is much smaller than the displays found on the iPhone 11 and 2018 iPhones, but it's much larger than the 4-inch display some people have been hoping for. 

Nothing is confirmed, but almost everything we've seen points to a 4.7-inch model. If this bursts your bubble, it's time to start looking elsewhere.

    Most predictable reasons ever. Replace iPhone SE with any unannounced phone… Same reasons.

      I still have and will keep until a new 4 inch phone comes out. My se is the perfect size. I’m a paving contractor. Most of my business is done on my phone in the field. A large phone is just unacceptable. I bought the new xs had it two days returned it and reactivated my se. I think it’s ridiculous that Apple has not given us a phone that we want instead of a bunch of bull shit that’s like carrying around a small laptop.

        I upgraded my SE to the 128GB model, and that’ll probably be the last change I make until a similarly-sized SE2 shows up. I have a PC at home with a 22″ screen. I do NOT need (nor want) a huge screen in my pocket.

        I did the same and bought the xs. First thing I noticed was the weight difference. Owning my SE, I had not dropped it once, but dropped my xs 3 times in 3 weeks tho ok. Yes the xs camera is better but my se still takes great pics and battery life is awesome. I went back to my se and sold my xs. I would like to see an updated oled full screen se come out. I would buy.

      As someone featured in GottaBeMobile in 2008 on the subject of computers in pockets, I am very much holding out for a phone that is pocket sized. I’m currently sticking with the iPhone 5s and have not “upgraded” to a bigger phone that doesn’t fit in a pocket.

      As follow-up to the 2008 article “Mickey Segal: Where Is The Love For Tablet PCs?” I now use an iPad mini when I’m wearing a sport jacket, but when I’m not, I don’t want a phone so big that I can’t sit down with it in my pants pocket. I’m not going to wear cargo pants, carry a purse, or strap a phone to my arm or belt.

      Many of my medical colleagues feel the same way. Apple should stop treating people who want pocket-sized phones as cheapskates. We are willing to pay real money for a phone, but we are not willing to walk around all day holding it in our hand. We have more important things to do with our hands.

    I keep using my Samsung Note 4, along with a fabulous MS Surface Pro. I don’t NEED a $1,000 smart phone. But I had to replace the battery on my Note 4 last year. I need a cheap replacement.

    If Apple doesn’t want me to know what they are planning, so be it. Someone else will. I’m too damned old for this stupid secrecy. Make a plan, commit to it and deliver on time, as announced. That’s what we do in the software business.

    I am sick and tired of phones which are the size and weight of a brick and yet easily scratch and break easily. Of course iphones are now made of glass; it’s a lot cheaper than aluminum or steel. I like my SE because it feels solid. In fact I have dropped it a dozen times on ceramic floor and yet looks as good as new.

    It’s very simple. I HATE big phones. If Apple won’t make another small phone then I will not buy another Apple Phone. I am still using the SE and if it breaks and there is no SE 2 then I am done with iOS.

    I like iOS; I prefer it over Android. However, I like small phones way more than any specific OS. I’ll pay $3000 for a new, state of the art 4″ phone. I won’t use a big phone even if it is free and state of the art.

      The iPhone 5s is stuck at iOS 12. Does that get security updates for a while or does it become dangerous to use a 5S in coming days?

    No iPhone SE update in 2019 was a HUGE mistake Apple. I do not want a phone the size of a brick. I thought we left those days back in the 1980s. Apparently Apple wants to move backwards instead of forwards with new phones. I don’t want or need all the new upgrades which are apparently making Apple phones bigger and bigger.

    Pay attention Apple – Just give us a small phone or I will be going elsewhere!!

    I’m forecasting for a new iPhone SE 2 in the Spring of 2020. IMO if Apple wanted to really kill the SE series, no reason to keep supporting the iPhone SE for IOS 13.
    “unlike the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and iPhone 5s, the iPhone SE will get will get upgraded to Apple’s iOS 13 operating system later this year.”
