    Got the SE last summer. I don’t need the latest best camera, and it does everything I want from a smart phone at half the price of a new 12

I had assumed that was some "update" from apple designed to get people to upgrade their old phones...
      My 6S was freezing up every time I took a photo. I got a 12 not pro and plan to keep it for years.

          I got 2 new, free replacements of the iPhone 6 because after a few years the battery started to expand and when I took it to the iPhone store they told me that the battery was going to explode and they had to give me a replacement for free. Every time I got a new phone it started working great again for a year or two and there was no incentive to upgrade. It went on that way for at least 6+ years until I finally just upgraded.. it’s been so long that I can’t even remember how long I had that model iPhone any longer.

            Well that at least argues against my theory that apple tinkers with the software at some point to make older versions chew through battery / run poorly to get people to upgrade. Anecdotally it seemed like her phone just suddenly developed this problem after an update, however.

                They did slow down phones. They got fined. Problem is that these fines are a rounding error for most companies. $113 million fine.. Make it $1billion and maybe you'll stop shady practices

                  No question mine and my son’s 6S both suddenly used significantly more battery (could literally watch the percentage charge drop 1% or more per min) after update to iOS 14, reported fixes did not help but always keeping it in low power mode was somewhat beneficial.

                    A smart phone to me is like a mattress or dress shoes. If you spend a lot of time on it I think it's worth spending decent money on.

                      My wife and daughter have 12s. I think they are getting bells and whistles that would be a waste for me. My SE does everything I’d want.
