Collective sigh of relief from designers who no longer have to fix iPhone 5-era case studies with new mock-ups
Every single shadow and comp bothers me. Am I the only one?
Why? They're striking and have a ton of depth to them. Beautiful imagery, IMO.
There's nothing that says "high-tech product" like a bunch of shots of the thing in arbitrary angles and with too-deep shadows.

well, yeah. the only other 4-inch phones are bargain bin junk.
Well, to be honest, the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact is 4.3 inch and it’s an amazing smartphone.
Any insights into why they named it 'SE'?
I heard someone in my office say "Second Edition" today, but I'm not sure if that's accurate.
