The iPhone SE finally arrived on my doorstep this morning, and I couldn’t wait to get Apple’s new 4-inch iPhone out of the box.

Get our first impressions of the tiny dynamo in Cult of Mac‘s iPhone SE unboxing video below.

Apple certainly didn’t think “outside the box” for the iPhone SE’s design — it’s lifted straight from its predecessors, the iPhone 5 and 5s. But Cupertino’s crafty engineers managed to squeeze a lot of powerful technology into a small body, and they’ve delivered the most-affordable iPhone ever in the process.

Have a look!

Will the bargain-basement $399 price tag and the throwback 4-inch form factor be enough to ensure that the iPhone SE is a hit? Despite a promising start in China, it remains to be seen if the world will go gaga for a smaller iPhone.

To find out exactly what we think of the iPhone SE and the new 9.7-inch iPad Pro (that unboxing video is coming soon!), make sure to subscribe to Cult of Mac’s YouTube channel to see all our reviews, how-tos and much more.
