I was going to get it as my first Apple device.

It was £359 and they offered gratis headphones gift for students, some Powerbeats2.

Decided to wait till 7 comes out as I knew the prices would change and, logically, old phones' will decrease.

Now it's £379 and the student offer is gone. Apple can fuck off, let them milk their iSheep...

I have a 64GB space gray SE. It's jailbroken on iOS 9.3.3. Hardware is great. It's light, feels good in the hand, amazing battery life for a phone that size and the A9 is incredibly fast but...

Stock iOS is utter dog shit. It's 2016 and iOS has no file explorer. Fucking Windows 95 has this. There's no excuse. Still no themes and still no easy file transfer, even to the user partition. You need to use iTunes to add music. If iOS 10 isn't jailbroken in 3-5 months I'll switch back to Android on my Nexus until it is, because I don't want to stay on outdated firmware forever. It's a great phone, software is just horse shit without access to your system partition. This is where Apple fucks up and turns away potential customers. I would gladly pay $100 a year for a dev account if that meant I could download and flash stock firmwares without KPP and all that shit so I could easily get a userland jailbreak withing a week of an update. It would also be nice if I could update without the jailbroken phone bootlooping. I don't think I'm asking for a lot.

>CyanogenMod is a testing ground for new features and is perpetually broken in all kinds of new and exciting ways. It lacks a focus on security and AOSP has much better code review and higher standards for code quality. Support for devices outside of the Nexus line tends to be quite broken with no guarantees of continued support and the lack of monthly security updates from the vendors is a dealbreaker due to device specific proprietary components. The drastic changes and broad device support in CyanogenMod also hold back new version upgrades for months.

That's because you don't know any better. You're just like the guy who has a Windows Phone and thinks it's perfectly fine because he's never had anything else. Like the very smartphone itself, you don't miss them until you get to try them.

But yeah, I totally want to live in the past because I have more features and customizability than you on my device in a tech enthusiast board. That makes for some grade A piece of purchase rationalization on your behalf.

>> No.56601921

It really depends on the update cycle Apple is choosing for the SE branch of iPhones. My guess is that they will probably do a two year cycle, but they also might want to do a 1-year-cycle. If latter is the case, then you could wait until march or so, but that's up to you.

Overall i wouldn't say the 3d touch features are really a game changer. They are nice short cuts and you get used to it quickly (kind of a muscle memory thing), but it's nothing that is incredibly important.

Just responding to your "you want to live in the past" shitpost.

I have Z3 and it's rooted. I disabled systeam features I don't want and I block ads on the entire device while you're force to deal with them, which to me is more than enough reason to ditch ios altogether. I can download apps right off my browser and install them without having to deal with itunes or some other proprietary cockblock. I don't even have to use the play store if I want, since I have f-droid and, again, the ability to instal apps from my browser, sd card or anywhere else. I don't have to jailbreak my device like apple users have to (and that's IF they are able to) and I can install pirated apps simply by allowing unknown sources with a single tap on my device's settings. I can ctrl+c ctrl+v files straight to and from my device, which I do so by simply SSHing into it and, again, I don't need iTunes for any of these. With Xposed I can install custom modules which do pretty much anything you could possibly come up with, including overhauling the look of my device with whatever I want. I can choose between launchers. I can downgrade my device if I actually want to, something iOS users simply don't have to the option to unless you're jailbroken and have backed your SHSH blobs up. I can install Restore and try out any custom rom I feel like. And that's just off the top of my head. So basically, it does everything that ios does and much more, so that makes it a complete no-brainer to use an android phone instead of an iphone. Why would I willingly restrict myself for no reason while paying more for said restriction since iphones are usually more expensive? Seem completely counter-productive.

I went ios -> windows phone -> android myself and I had to rank them it would be:

Android >>> iOS >>> boiling dish of diarrhea >>> Windows Phone. I still use an ipad myself because it has god tier battery life and I just use it for casual browsing and book reading.

And there is that completely predictable purchase rationalization back again. Whether you care about them or not it's completely irrelevant, a plus is still a plus. Notice how I could simply use my device as a "phone" just like you do except I actually get to have the option to do so much more? That renders your point flat. And you have a smartphone, not just a phone. Go buy an old nokia if a phone is all you need.

>They'll do everything iPhones do.
Call me a faggot, stupid or whatever you like, you don't need to understand it and I don't expect you to, but I just like how the iPhone looks and feels. I'm still using my four year old iPhone 5, and I just like how it looks and how it aged.

Plus, you can't buy chinkphones for 20 bucks around here. The cheapest that's usable at all around here is something like 100 bucks, but those usually have horrible cameras and displays, so no thanks.

Oh and another thing. I can actually multitask on my phone as well since it's not RAM starved like every iphone from the 6 downwards. My Z3 can easily hold 10 apps open in the background without reloading.

Okay Sigmund, I know it's very important to you to have hypothetical advantages, but I still don't give a shit. You apparently have some deep ideological expectations of what your devices should do which I don't have. I don't care about SSHing onto my device and having full control, I don't care about piracy on a phone as I don't buy any apps anyway, I don't care about proprietary software and I don't really care about ads in a few apps.

Again, who the fuck cares about what you care? I'm listing objective advantages as requested and they still remain whether you acknowledge them or not. I don't care about many things in the world, that suddenly doesn't devalue them in the slightest, only to me personally. You somehow think that not caring about things make them irrelevant, which is some serious case of egocentrism like I've never seen before. You're just grasping for a counter-argument and failing miserably to come up with something meaningful to say.

No idea.
If I bought an iphone I'd get this one

>last good iphone design
>eats less battery
>not so overpriced
>headphone jack

iphone 6 and 7 are absolutely horrible, I've moved to HTC and never looked back. Apple died with Jobs, no it's just bunch of tumblerina faggots without a clue about design or functionality.

so you do agree that there are no usable nougat roms.

except it's google themselves which proclaimed after 6 months that they fixed the lag for the Nexus 5X.

anyway why did you switch if it worked for you?

there will never be an iPhone 8.
Apple will prolly come up with something special for the 10 year anniversary next year and break the past release naming from there on on.

also iOS 10 still runs fine on the iPhone 5.
