    I'd definitely but the SE, as it's really cool, but the only feature that I don't like that much is the first generation Touch ID.

    The iPhone SE is a nice phone, but I wouldn't purchase one for myself as long as the iPhone 6/6s is available.

    What do you mean by 1st generation Touch ID?

    No. The 6/6s is good for me.
    Yes, that is the perfect size for me too.

    The SE doesn't have 3D Touch. It has touch ID and live photos.

    Huh. I thought it did. That stinks. It's still an incredible phone. Just would've put it over the top w 3D Touch.

    I'm recommending the SE to a few people who are upgrading from their 5s. I told them you won't be missing it since they never had it! And they agreed!

    I showed a video of what 3D Touch does to one of those people and she said she didn't think it was a must-have feature.

    I'm guessing it would have taken too much space.

    Just got done watching the keynote and I'm absolutely in love with the iPhone 5SE. I strayed away from Apple for awhile because of their big screens! The iPhone 5s was my favorite and I'm very happy that they brought the 4 inch size!

    Glad you're looking forward to the iPhone SE! You're definitely not alone in preferring the smaller screen.

    Now that the SE has been announced, I may actually consider it. I will be going to college in the fall of 2016, my current iPhone 6 plus has a cracked screen, and I've been missing the smaller phone size. I thing the combination of small form factor, improved battery life, and cheaper price tag for the same camera and power as the 6s may just convince me to buy one.

    Lots of good answers (for and against) the SE here..... seems for those that want it, it fits a range of needs/wants, which is exactly why Apple is releasing it. Cases and accessories should be plentiful too, which isn't usually the case for a newly released iPhone, since the size/form factor is familiar.

    Agreed. I was slightly worried Apple was shooting for an iPhone 5c sequel but it packs a punch and they didn't cut too many corners. With the smaller display (lower res) am I crazy to think it may actually beat the 6s in benchmarks?

    The Touch ID sensor is the same as the 5s/6/6 plus. The Touch ID on the 6s/6s plus are faster and more accurate.

    no. One of the reasons i switched to an iPhone finally was the bigger screen.

    I'm still pretty torn. I love the 6S, but every time I pull out my 5S I miss that size and feel. I've commented already on this thread, but I'm still debating, especially with 2gb ram essentially confirmed...

    These are good problems to have!

    No way, i love the bigger screens, as in my Iphone 6S, and also consider moving to the Plus size.

    Hi,

    There's absolutely NO doubt. I will hold off until September to see what the new 7 will be like, and if the new camera is just marginally better (like 6s to 6 was), I will then be getting the SE. I love the design of the 5s - it's a thing of beauty, plain & simple.

    Thanks!

    I just purchased a 5c for my niece and I really would have liked to hear about this before I purchased. Now I have two options...Return it pay a restocking fee OR get the cash to put down on the phone!!!
    If it were me, I'd pay the restocking fee and get the iPhone SE. To "me", it would be worth it being that you're basically getting a phone with the latest specs at a fraction of the price that will be supported longer than the 5C.

    I like the 4,7" screen on 6/6s and don't think I can go back to a 4" screen.
    But I will recommend it to others ho don't want a bigger screen.
