Not necessarily. With the SE, there are 2 or 3 models. 1662, and 1723 are 2 I remember. Most of the deals I see are for the 1662, but this model does not support the TDE 40 band ( 2300 MHz) that is required for Airtel / etc.

Jio owns 850 and 1800 MHz. That should be supported.

Hello,

I was using Galaxy S4 and migrated to iphone SE just a month back.

Currently i use both. So I think I will be able to relate to you and answer your queries.

First thing you will miss is the back button and the location of back button. First few days were difficult. now its ok (still I am little confused as I am using both OS).

Then you will miss the availability of options and selecting texts / messages / pictures etc. A simple task of selecting multiple pictures and forwarding it to multiple groups in whatsapp is much difficult in IOS compared to android. In android you just press and hold > select all the images > forward > select recipients > send. In IOS, you press and hold a image>select forward from pop up> select multiple image>select forward icon> select recipients>send. Same goes with message also.

Also the location of back button is always on the top left corner, which is difficult to access in multiple situations.

Moving contacts, sms, pictures etc is easy if you install move to IOS app in your android phone.

Most important, if you frequently switch ON / OFF mobile data, you will be irritated that you will have to go to settings > mobile data > ON / OFF everytime. There is no drop down menu or it is not available in control center.

One more irritant, you cannot do clear all notifications. You have to separately clear each notofication. So if you get too many whats app or emails, you find it difficult.

Also one thing I noticed in my Iphone SE and also in my friend's Iphone 7 is that pressing exactly on the arrow symbol (for going back) doesn't work. You have to press slightly to the right of arrow to make it work.

Now for your last question, I still feel that i will use android again, but for my personal mobile, for its sheer ease of use. For official ones, I prefer IOS.

With iphone SE there is a possibility for lots of mistyping, as the screen size is small.

Also I feel that I have to delete photos at multiple locations to clear. Deleting in one place is not enough. This becomes trouble as I store whatsapp pics in my gallery and I end up deleting pics in atleast 3 places (especially the forwards which we dont want)

And finally I am missing file manager.
32GB i feel is OK if you don't use photos or videos much.

Now for the best part:

1. Battery is AWESOME. Even after 30 mins of whatsapp call, continuous 4G ON, few phone calls and few SMS, the bateery drops only by 3 to 4%, whereas in my samsung I get atleast 15% battery drop. Never have to charge my iphone in my office. I end up with close to 40% by 8 PM if I start with 100% by 5:30 AM. In Samsung I have to charge it by 3 PM.

2. Touch and the call goes, its so blazing fast.

3. Looks so classy

4. Display is OK

5. call reception is too good. No call drops so far

6. Brand value

7. SIRI is fun. Now i speak my messages to my friends.

As for music, I use my samsung. So I cannot comment. But one thing is that the output volume from my iphone is higher compared to S4 for
same earphones and same song.

hope I was of little help to you.

Barath

This is a drawback, but I think I'll not use WA on iPhone, I'll use it on another phone.

I think I shouldn't have a problem. It's a small stretch in my Mi4i (5" Display)

As long as I can sync my contacts from google, I'm not bothered.

Point noted. Thanks. (I don't think I'll use mobile data as Wifi will be available at my home and university)

Aren't there good gesture trail keyboards?

Perfect! I don't mind sending videos to google photos once a week, but I don't want installing updates to be cumbersome.

Awesome. Battery life on Android is decent, but LTE drains battery quickly.

4. Display is OK
I thought that >300 PPI is enough?
Maybe Samsungs AMOLED display has spoilt you.

Since I'm mostly buying the iPhone SE, what case do you guys recommend?
I think it'll be cheaper in India.
