    " Funny we make huge phones, work to make them smaller and fit more in. Back to huge 6 inch screens with so much hardware i most likely will never use. I am happy to see Apple took into consideration the people who liked the smaller phone. Iphone SE is a 4 inch chunk of brushed metal and glass. The camera is great. It even has a proper headphone jack. The SE can take amazing pictures and 4k video. It just feels solid."

    "I love a smartphone that doesn't skimp on feature and the Acer Liquid Jade Primo totally fits the bill. The photos it produces are amazing--great for social media and look wonderful when printed at large sizes as well. Windows took a little getting used to, but once I did the phone was fast and easy at switching apps and processing anything I needed. Plus the small form factor means I don't have to carry a purse!"

    "I like the Sansui Ua2 and its window phone like design. It makes it easier to me to get my information and be more productive on my phone. Also I like the battery because it lasts a good amount of time during the day before I have to recharge. It isn't a name brand phone but it does the job for what I need."
