    If I had to guess, I'd say it's because it's the most desired color at this point...
    I totally agree, I got the Silver from the store because they told me that SE is selling like hot cake. I ordered a Space grace from ebay and will return the silver upon delivery. I must add that color variants in 64GB are sold-out in most stores right now (using online store tracking system from apple.com).

    Size does matter
    This is the only time I have to agree.

    Just finished setting up my SE as well. Thing is super fast and I love the size. I've been using my 5s for the last week while getting ready for the SE. Battery is doing good since its been running non stop since 3pm.

    Here it is next to my wife's 6s+ lol.

    So I got my SE today, 16gb rose gold. Can't get over how light it is. Also the color is very nice, whoa. At my local store, all was sold out at first and now just the space grey and silver are. Interesting

    Are you ok with just 16 Gb of storage?

    Not just your local stores. All of the Apple stores in my city had all color and storage variants sold out today. Has to get my SE from my carrier, of which only had Rose gold and gold 16gb in stock. Went with Rose Gold. Looks pretty classy.

    I'd do just fine with a 16G. I usually only use about 10G of it all.

    However, I chose the 64G just because for the extra C-note.....it's worth it. Always better to have too much than not enough I love.

    Yep, I'm more of a cloud/streaming person. It's perfect for me. I think I have less than 20 or just about that amount of apps. I stream music, and usually after I backup my photos to the cloud, I delete them unless I plan to use them possibly. I went through a lot of phones before I got here, and I realized that I should just stick with the apps I actually use, and I realized that there's only a few.

    Wow, seriously? That's very interesting. Interestingly enough, my closest Apple Store is like the only one that had it in stock. The other stores in whatever's the radius is for Apple on their site, didn't have any. To me, that was destined for me!

    Yay for rose gold \o/

    This is a real phone? It has most of the internals of the 6s so this doesn't make sense.

    I've heard this type of cellphone humor many times in the past but it doesn't work well here

    The SE is 's cutting edge device in a small package. Kinda like when they came out with the iPad Mini

    Yes, would I have liked 64gb? Sure. However, with the way technology is advancing, there are ways to over come the 16gb storage dilemma. You can use cloud storage for photos and videos which upload daily or whenever you use the app. You can even "downgrade" the video or picture quality in terms of resolution or native pixels used in a capture shot. These all are variable options available to minimize storage usage. As for app, I may download a lot but learned to keep the ones I only really use. As for movies, I just stream them to my phone. So long story short, 16GB is adequate enough.

    I respect your decision but it just seems like a lot of hassle for the cost difference between the two sizes. I bought the SE 64GB only because they didn't offer a 128 option

    My motto is you can never have enough storage. Probably due to do owning old 20 MB hard drive computers back in the day

    Hahaha!

    I gave up a Note 5, iPhone 6+, and a iPhone 6 for this little SE. If I didn't have a tablet at home and could only have 1 device, it would be a iPhone 6s/6s+.

    I love when people see my phone and ask, "you're still using a iPhone 5"? I say yes and It just makes my day. Love having this sleeper phone!!!

    The 16 Gb model has less than 12 Gb of free storage , so if you use about 10 Gb there's very little space left.
    It's really not advisable to keep a NAND almost full. I'd like to have at least 4 Gb of free space.

    Well, tbh the iPad mini wasn't "a cutting edge device" ... It was kind of uninspiring, hardware wise, compared to the bigger sibling iPad 4 ( A6X and 1 Gb of ram).
    The first Mini to be acceptable imho was the Mini 4.

    Hi, everybody. I've found iMore posts to be most helpful, so I wanted to share my experience with my new SE 64Gb Gold

    I picked it up a couple of hours ago , and am totally pleased! It is fast, and it is beautiful.

    I upgraded from a 5S 32Gb, so I am not going through withdrawal symptoms from a larger screen. Actually, I have had ample time to compare my 5S side-by-side with a 6S, and found the screen size makes hardly any difference for the apps I use. The 5S keyboard is smaller, but I use voice recognition most of the time, instead of typing.

    I was a little concerned that the matte chamfers would be a step down from the polished chamfers on the 5S, but they look much the same, and the matte chamfers bring maybe a little more color to the front of the phone.

    Touch ID works great. Great camera.

    It's the best.

    Thanks for all your help.

    Picked up an SE today... couldn't resist. Space Gray 64GB. I even traded in a old iPhone 5, for $100 credit. I loved that space black, and wish Apple would have stuck with it, but otherwise, the SE feels like an old friend.

    Apple Store was out of SIM free models, but they had a T-mobile one that I could buy as "device only". Popped out the T-mo SIM right away and put my current AT&T SIM from my 6S+ and activated the phone that way. Should in theory be unlocked.

    So now to figure what to do with my 6S+...

    Well coming from a 5S is a win-win situation.
    Enjoy it
