4 inch smartphones

 

Do you think the release of the iPhone SE will get other manufacturers to make more small form factor smartphones without major compromises to specifications?

I would like more diversity in flagship phone sizes.

What comes around goes around

Just when cell phones got to the size of small TVs we are have Apple going back the other direction. What was the screen size on the original iPhone?

I don't think Apple will sacrifice any performance in the SE model otherwise they would not be able to convince consumers to get them unless they were a super cheap entry model.

The original iPhone had a 3.5" screen, this is a 4" Retina, but not the Retina HD that is found on the latest models, but HD may not be discernible on a smaller screen. It also does not have 3D touch. It has the same processor used in the 6S Plus and the 12mp rear camera, so in many respects it is comparable to the to the earlier 6S.

Here's a link to the specs on all of the iPhones ever made to date:

Same Screen Size as 5S

The 4" screen on the SE is the same as my 5S. The SE's A9 processor is much faster than the 5S however. There are several other improvements as well.

Size

Size will be an important design differentiator.

Performance will always have to be the latest available, regardless of size.
