    The SE is 's cutting edge device in a small package. Kinda like when they came out with the iPad Mini
    The Mini was more like the 5c equivalent with the slightly lower processor (MIni had A5, while the full size had A6X). 5c had the A6 with the 5s using the newer A7.

    The SE truly is on the same level processor-wise as the latest phones, not a step behind as we've seen Apple do in the past with the "cheaper" models. I would think based on size and/or engineering they compromised on a few minor things (front facing camera, force touch, previous gen Touch ID) but overall they really did cram a 6s into the 5s body Nobody should feel like they're using a "lesser" phone with the SE like they may have with the 5c which should help them move off the shelves!

    My motto is you can never have enough storage. Probably due to do owning old 20 MB hard drive computers back in the day
    Exactly. I'd rather have more than enough than I need vs having to think "I don't have enough space to do an iOS update!" and have to delete stuff.

    Lol.
    I agree with you though on everyone being different. We are all right, in knowing our own habits. For me, getting extra storage would be money wasted for what I use. For you, it would be a waste to get a device with 16gb storage. I'm just glad that we all have options. I don't micromanage my phone because of the storage, it's just something that I do in general with my technology, even my computer.

    Also before I "arrived" on the SE, I was trying so many phones (windows phone, android, ios, so one can say that I tried them all!) and it gets tiring to use your time searching for apps that you don't even use with all of these phones.

    I've really loved my SE so far. Sure, the screen is smaller, so you have to retrain yourself on the more cramped keyboard, but everything else has been a delight. The size is much better in my pocket, and its easier to hold (with actual edges). My 6s was very slippery, and most cases made it huge. The best part is, my SE is just as fast or faster than my 6s. I noticed that Apple Pay is much faster, even with the slightly slower Touch ID sensor.

    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+...
    Ebay will be glad to help with disposal :-)

    Ugh mine gets here Thursday. My magpul case and tempered glass screen protector get here today. Space Gray 64GB. I don't know how you 16GB people do it...not to mention that not so convenient bug that rears its ugly head every so often where "other" space is taking up NUMEROUS GB's on your iDevice...

    Still debating if I will go back to trying to use a tablet such as an iPad or what not, but honestly every time I have owned any kind of tablet I just find myself using my PC laptop or Macbook more. Also debating whether I want to keep my Note 5 or not, but having two phones is too much of a hassle, as I've found in the past.

    A 64gb is another $150 more here in Aus v the 16gb which is a bit less than a 1/4 of the phone cost outright, and unless you pre ordered you can't get one now anyway, in my town there was 3 places with 16gb and only 1 would sell outright, and i didn't want to upgrade now as i can do it for $0 when the 7 is out, i had a 6S plus 128gb that had about 80gb used but was mostly all my photos/videos from years. All that is now on my 128gb iPad pro so any photos/video gets dumped on my iMac and onto the pro.
    16gb sell easier too as they are cheaper, just sold my 5C 16gb for $290, my 6S plus only got $1100, pocketed $780, which is $590 US, gee our dollar is crap

    That's because the original mini had the same internals as the original iPad 2. The SE is truly deserving as a 6s mini, but I prefer the SE monicker

    No Quick Charge.
    Apple's devices always have been fast to charge. Especially if you use an iPad charger.
    Apple devices charge really slow compared to most Android phones when using the charger that comes with them. The iPhone charges faster when using an iPad charger, but still nothing compared to most Android devices.

    Actually quite on the contrary... Only the Plus is slow.
    The iPhone 6 and 6S are quite fast.

    My husband wanted rose gold since everyone was raving about it. Then he heard someone describe the color as effeminate and suddenly he believed that owning one might emasculate him! Now he can only live with the "macho" space grey. Are these colors really gender specific? Can a "real" man own a rose gold SE?
    Tell him it's not rose gold. It's bro's gold.

    Mine arrived today. It's weird adjusting to the screen size from a 6 plus, but man is this phone ever beautiful. And it's wicked fast. So far so good. Definitely a big fan of this upgrade! Can't wait until my official apple leather case arrives this Friday!

    I have the Apple leather case on now with a glass screen protector.

    It just doesn't feel premium or like it has enough protection?

    Like I've said before, I have issues.

    I think you have the right combination here: Apple case + glass screen protector.
    I can't comment about your feelings, but I can assure Apple leather case offers a good protection against drops and scratches (from direct experience)

    I know, I almost don't want to mask it's iconic good looks. And I like that the chamfered edges are now matted. Makes it look more sleek to me. I ordered a leather pouch from Sena Cases as well for the days I want to rock it naked but still have some form of scratch resistance while I tote it around.

    So the Apple case is good with absorbing shock? I wish it had more colors though.

    So do I! Gives it a more unique aspect .... makes you wonder if SE is an hommage back to old Apple times when they had "SE" models on the Mac.... Or perhaps it's "Steve Edition"... as I think the 5/5S/SE form factor was the design Steve had a hand in... ???
