    The design change is what I was waiting for in a long time.. it looks brilliant! Love it. Looks way better than the previous round shapes (remember Iphone 5? that one I just loved :). When my current Iphone X will die, this new small one will be my replacement. Why? cause I got tired of big phones, as I previously had 6 plus, 7 plus and an older Samsung. Whenever I ran or cycled I had to have this huge tablet in my pockets .. and it felt heavy and uncomfortable. Yes, it's good for watching movies, or gaming.. but that's like 1% of the time on my phone. The rest is just plain old facebook, news, calls, sms. And this can very well be accomplished with a pocketable phone. Your review is actually very very good, don't understand why one third of the votes are negative. Maybe just haters?

    I would get it. But not at that price point. 128 gigs you are in the 700 range plus tax and activation fees you are in the 800 dollar range. Lots of money for something f so small. If it was in the SE price range. 3-400 is go for it.

    Yeah the size is awesome... I’m just a little concerned that because of the aspect ratio which gives it the larger screen for the size compared to iPhone 8 or SE2, text will be too small on web pages etc which can’t be enlarged by the settings ‘larger text’. The width of the screen is actually a mm slimmer than the SE2. I’m hoping the screen will be just right and everything on it won’t be too small that will make it the perfect phone. But considering the aspect ratio I’m not sure it can be.
