The 16GB iPhone SE is the most affordable phone Apple has ever made, but is it worth it?

A $679 iPhone sure sounds like a good deal, until you realise that 16GB is not even enough space to store the Hunger Games saga. While there are many ‘survival guides’ out there on how to make the most out of just 16GB of internal storage, in this week’s iPhone Show, we come to the conclusion that you simply won’t survive.

You can sign up for iCloud, but you’re still going to need local storage in order to download your apps and media. You can avoid taking Live Photos or recording 4K video, but that defeats the purpose of buying a new iPhone. Not even moving to China is going to solve your 16GB problem – watch the video above to find out why.
