    It’s quite good value for a new upto date iPhone.

    I find Iphone SE as the best option if you want to use an iPhone but don't want to spend as much. The Pro models are definitely too expensive ($ 1000). If you wait a few months you can get the SE model even cheaper ;)

    I've had the SE 2020 phone since day 1, it is fine. No issues.

    I've had the SE since it was released. I find it an excellent phone and considerably better in all departments than the iPhone 5 which it replaced. It's got everything an iPhone 8 has and more and has the processor power of an iPhone 11. It's a lot of phone for the money and it's fairly well future proofed as it should receive the next 2 or 3 iOS updates, something to bear in mind when considering an iPhone 7 or 8. Everything works the way it should and all apps load very quickly. All in all I'm very happy with my SE.

    It has been reported that the haptic touch feature (i.e. where you long press on an item to get additional options) doesn't work in all places such as notifications.

    Hardly a deal breaker. This only applies to notifications appearing on the Lock Screen. Just swipe from right to left on the notification and tap View. Same result.

    I cannot decide between the Sim free Phone SE 64 gb or the Samsung A71 128 gb with a 6.7 inch screen.
    Both are priced around £419.

    Yes, this ^^^^
    I was always in the ‘iPhones are ridiculously overpriced’ opinion group, but just cannot get on with android.  
    When my aged (but much loved) Windows phone died last year, I very reluctantly bit the bullet and bought my first iPhone (XR). I still think it’s a ridiculous amount of money for a phone, but I have been very happy with it.

    Everything will be alright in the end so, if it’s not yet alright, it means it’s not yet the end

    If you can live with android, I will say no.

    IMO, The screen & battery is too small.
