    I agree about the portability and great form factor in my hand. I came from using Android as my daily driver, and being a fan of OS purity, I had the Nexus 5X. I've used Android since the days of the G1 and when the iPhone 6 came out bought it, but returned it within the 2 week trial period. I just don't think I was ready and the Android phone I had at the time was faster and more snappy IMO.

    Now... well... now with the SE's ability to just do anything and everything we want at fast speeds and the size, shape, look (so sexy), and feel of it overall just makes me so more than happy that I switched. I still am keeping my Nexus 5X as a toy to play with the new Android N OS that is upcoming, but other than that my daily driver is DEFINITELY the iPhone. I will certainly entertain the iPhone 7 this fall, but the SE just feels so right and operates so well. I am satisfied with my decision by far!

    Apple has done a REALLY, REALLY good thing indeed with bringing back the old, but new (we'll say "refreshed") style.

    If this could be used for general I devices purchases. After I purchased my 12.9 iPad Pro I said to myself. Why did I spend all that monies?

    Also love my SE still. I've been carrying around my iPad mini, but find myself using the SE more since its way faster than the iPad lol.

    I've been thinking of moving on to either a iPhone 6s or 6s Plus and eliminate the iPad altogether.

    I'm just having a hard time letting go of the SE.....

    Ahhh, yes, Tried that when 6 plus came out: 6Plus and iPadAir, no more mini.

    Worked for a while. Air was still too big to carry as often as the mini, so it sat. Air was also no substitute for a laptop. Liked the Plus at first, and yes- it did fill space left by the mini. For a while. Got rid of the Air and back to Mini with the mini4, and now have that with me in most places.

    Randomly held a friends phone for a moment (can you hold this for a sec) and thought wow - this is really comfortable. Then saw the SE. Ordered. Added the watch months ago. Now eager to try combo of watch, SE, iPad mini, and smallest MacBook Air.

    IPad can't replace full laptop, and 6plus can't replace iPad. And nothing can replace the small, easy fit of SE. Small, portable, great battery life. Beautiful in a way the 6-series isn't. Win. Expecting delivery tomorrow...

    So I went out and got a iPhone 6s Plus and am on my second day of use with it. Man is this thing huge! So far - so good.

    I'm still carrying around my SE for numbers, texts, etc..that didn't get transferred over.

    I definitely like the Plus over the iPad but am still unsure if I like it over the SE? Nothing like the feeling of that small, powerful device in your hand that the SE brings. We'll see...

    Pretty much the same here.
    I really liked my Moto G 2015, and may get T-Mobile $3 per month plan for a backup, but when Apple came out with the SE, I jumped right away.
    I have Android M on the Moto G and it is very nice, but I still prefer the SE.
    I doubt I'll ever go back.

    Mixed feelings. I'm an Android user who switched for the complete Apple ecosystem benefits. I had a 5s for work before so I knew what to expect size wise. However, I'm struggling to adapt this time. The keys are too small and the screen can be unresponsive at times. Some buttons I am finding you have to press off center. I went with this phone mainly because I'm making the switch mid cycle and didn't want to pay full price for the 6s plus and turn around and get the 7 pro. So it is serving its purpose. Camera is awesome, battery life is spectacular and overall other than a few gripes and personal preferences I am enjoying it and will do so until October.

    If the SE was my only device I'd give it a 10 hands down. My problem is I have an SE for personal use and a 6s that is work issued. When I get home and am using my SE it feels a bit cramped, but then I get use to it and go back to being extremely happy. It's funny though because it's like everyday i have to readjust to the screen size. I wish I just had 2 SE's.

    Yes.

    I'm currently using a iPhone 6s+ instead of the SE and it's amazing how I need 2 hands to use this thing!

    With the SE I can walk, talk, drive (I know), etc....all while using my SE in one hand easily.

    With the 6s+, I need 2 hands all the time and I can't hold anything while typing on it. The only good things about the 6s+ is no more use while driving (I have to leave it in the hands free mount) and zero typing errors (keyboard is nice and wide). Other than those 2 things, I'm missing my SE lol.

    It's a great phone. I missed the small phones I used to take while running. I used to sport two large phones while working, but now I carry the iPhone SE and the Nexus 6p. I gave up the s7edge for now.

    The SE is the best iPhone for value, as it has many of the same things as the 6s, but in a smaller casing and and fantastic price. When I do buy the latest phone on the market, I will have to give this up, but it makes a great iPod.

    I have used the 6 then 6+ then 6S and 6S+...my siblings are now enjoying these phones they inherited from me since I am truly happy with the SE. I used to want to do everything on my phone but now, am glad to use the phone as a phone (and workout buddy). For my multimedia needs and anything that needed a bigger screen, my 12.9" iPad Pro fills that spot.

    I purchased the SE right after it. Was released! I'm coming from the Blackberry Priv. I LOVE the SE. Just the perfect little phone. The camera is amazing, and the phone is so fast!

    I just came back from a DisneyWorld vacation and I have to say the form factor of the SE worked wonderfully, whether I was waiting in line to ride Thunder Mountain, or that I was looking at my next fast pass. The size and features made it a great addition.

    Coming from a Blackberry Q10, I was concerned about email, text, IM, etc.
    What a lovely surprise; everything is FLAWLESS
    WiFi calling, Bluetooth Audio, etc.; everything is plain, simple, & easy to navigate
    ONLY complaint, which is weird, because ITunes is an Apple product; you CAN'T email, individual songs from ITunes, unless they're purchased from Apple. Which means I have 3,000+ CD downloaded songs, that are NOT emailable
    Very strange, because you CAN email them from a Windows 10 PC, with ITunes; go figure
    Anyway, LOVE my SE!

    So I had an old iphone 4s which was handed down from my neice and was going to get a 5s but got talked into the SE. I am freaking out a bit as I spent the $200 on a contract for this over paying nothing for the 5s and feel like what I got was a better camera? I am not techy and just wondering should I have stuck with my gut and got the 5s or is the SE really worth it? Struggling with being unsure if I really needed the new processing etc when I use it mainly for photos, music and talking? Any thoughts are appreciated to this iphone newbie.

    If you're using your phone for mainly photos, then the SE was a great choice! It has a way better camera then the 5s.

    It's also night and day difference between the SE and 5s in overall performance. The SE is a little powerhouse!

    The SE is right on par with the latest and the greatest, and I am sure you already know that. I suppose your question is if $200 more investment over the 5s is worth it, the way you use your phone now. I too use it mostly as a tool, not so much for entertainment, except some light browsing and sharing of photos and music with friends etc.

    In your case, you seem to be afraid of regretting the investment in something that, in your opinion, is not exactly the necessity. If that would be the case, in order to avoid suffering from the buyer's remorse constantly, you should think about the confidence that you can have in the very current model that can withstand at least another few years, plus much better resale value than the 3 years old 5s, which will help you upgrade to the next phone if you so inclined. These factors, not necessarily the performance improvement itself (believe me, the SE is way faster than the 5s), would be sufficiently worth the $200 investment, which you are obviously not too sure of. That's just my personal opinion.

    I have used cell phones since the old bag phones in 1993. Of course I have upgraded phones as technology changed. Last phone was a Galaxy S5. When the new SE came out, I was impressed. I got the 64 gb because of it's size. I didn't want a "big" phone anymore. I've had the phone about 3 weeks and am very pleased with every aspect of the phone...especially the camera. I found I no longer need to lug my DSLR around except when I was
    taking some serious photos for website, newsletter and photos I sell.
    Apple has made an iphone convert here.

    Hey,

    The device is rock solid; good battery life, excellent feel to the hands when used, and vibrant screen. Plus the camera is a no slouch.

    It's a keeper, methinks!

    Cheers.

    On that note, I love the SE. The iPhone 5 form factor was easily my favorite and most comfortable of all of them. It fits in my pocket, my small hands can reach everything. If I feel like I need a bigger device at home I have an iPad mini. I'm truly hoping this phone stops me from my insane trading problem. So far a week in I'm in love with it.
    THIS is me exactly!!! I also have an ipad mini that's collecting dust on my desk; haven't opened it in over a month. I've decided to take the plunge and get the iphone se. i'm coming from a samsung s7, so i know that'll take some adjusting to for the screen size.
