    Great Phone for the Value

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    This is an old IPhone 5 body style, but will all the internals of the IPhone 6S and trust me they pack a punch. The IPhone SE is sporting an A9 chip with 64-bit desktop-class architecture, the Touch ID fingerprint sensor, a 12MP iSight camera and iOS 10. One down side is that it's still on a 4-inch Retina display, so people with bulkier hands.....your going to run into a few problems. 1 It may have only been a few short years ago, but typing anything on a 4 inch display is hard work. I found myself stopping every few letters to back up and correct my mistakes (auto correct is a life saver here). 2 The sleek uni-body design is hard to hold on to even with larger hands, a case is definitely recommended. All and all great phone for the price and at 1/8 the cost of any new phone on the market, its the go to if your balling on a budget.

    This iPhone SE, one good Phone!

    I always wanted an iPhone, but for a cheap price and I found it. It has 32GB and it only uses a litte over 5GB to run system, WOW. It came with IOS 10 and I updated to current great. The photos and videos are beautiful crisp, clear. The live photo really got me, never saw that before, it was really cool. It is small and I can hold it securely and touch all the buttons with my thumbs if necessary and it fits everywhere. The sound is better than my other phone and the volume is high enough to hear in my van when driving, speakerphone is loud also. I love the simplicity of using the iPhone. It comes with Simple Mobile, not a problem, uses T-Mobile service works great. I am well pleased.

    Great option for phablet haters!

    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

    Pros: Decent battery- I unplug mine before I go to bed at 11pm and by the end of the next day (6pm) I still have around 40%. Best camera compared to anything else that I've tried in this price range (besides an old, used flagship). Pretty good performance for most games Cons: Not great if you read a lot on websites. The text can be pretty small. If you zoom in you'll cut off most of the text. Must be used with Simple Mobile for 6 months to a year (mixed information online) before it can be unlocked. Summary: Really great phone for anyone who doesn't want a massive device, a budget-minded individual, or a first phone for a child.

    I really like it!

    I am an Android person, but thought I would try an Apple product to see what the fuss is all about. The exterior, like all apple products, is beautiful. Just some things you don't have as much flexibility as with android. Loading your own music on it is a multi step process, easier on the android. Photos knock it out of the park though, wow. With the apple, you can't put your app icons where you want, as you can with an android. It is not always intuitive to me. Each has it's + and -, I have concluded. Overall I really like it, just can't give it a 5 for some of the reasons listed. I will keep it and would recommend it.

    Works fine

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    Works fine just like any apple phone .It's not big like the current iPhones, but it's still the same great quality. It's bigger than a 4S and identical to a 5, but with the power of a 6. Cheaper than a lot of smartphones too. If you like iPhones and don't want to pay an arm and a leg, I recommend this one. If you're not sure if you want or like a iPhone, view other phones first. Don't limit yourself. There are plenty of great phones out there. I liked my 4S, then I tried a Windows Phone which wasn't very satisfying, and then I came back to this one, but mostly because it was cheaper than a lot of other current smartphones.

    SIMPLE mobile, cell phones for simple people

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

    I purchased this device at Best Buy. The device itself is eligible for unlocking, but simple mobile has a policy that prevents it from being eligible until you invest 12 months of money into their service. It's a financial trap, and they should be put out of business. As with most horrible companies, they will redirect you to legal policies that allow them to be horrible people, without taking the blame for abusing their customers. Technology is supposed to make people's lives better, not worse. Instead I find myself calling their customer service hotline like a circus dog jumping through their hoops.

    Easy to setup and use.

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    Paid online picked up in store smoothly. Set it up as soon as I got home, everything you need for setup is in box. Option for prepaid card was available in store but I simply chose the $40 plan and synced the account to my credit card. Just download the simple mobile app and with a few easy steps, you're easy to talk. Since it's and apple product, an apple ID is necessary for full access to the iPhone. Got it for my 12 yr old in that rose gold color and she is impressed so far, it's also on the WiFi and has the possibility to become a Hotspot for other devices to connect for Internet.

    Great option for afforable iPhone

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    This phone runs on T-Mobile's network. It is really easy to activate from online. I have compared this phone and its signal to Verizon post-paid plan. It is basically the same coverage but half of the cost. If you try to call Simple Mobile's customer service, it is terrible. Utilize the chat function from Simple Mobile's website. It provides better service as far as getting issues you might have in setting up your phone such as porting a number.
