    The 1.2 MP is plenty for me since I've never taken a selfie. My wife on the other hand......

    I agree with Max on Apple keeping costs down and using existing parts from the 5s. I'm happy and love the SE!

    I will say I prefer the camera lens angle of the ole' 1.2 vs the 5MP... call me crazy. Quality is a no brainer, but always seemed liked the 5MP on my 6S Plus distorted the image (too much "fisheye" unless you held it further away).

    Oh, then the SE is really perfect! It's a pocket 6s, which I always wanted.
    The only thing missing from the 6s/+ is 3D touch, which I do not care. I do not like to "press" the screen anyway.

    actually the lack of 3D Touch is the only thing I would miss about my iPhone 6S, switching to an SE ... I've got accustomed to it and I found it very useful.

    Picked up a SE Space Grey today. Sold my 6S plus a month ago and have been using a 5C. Man its a nice little phone, beautifully made so much nicer than the 6 series, the colour and the edges just looks so smick, very classy. Don't think i want to case it. Very fast and smooth and prefer the TID 1 like my iPad pro, found the 6S version too fast.
    Well worth the dollars v the 6S, glad i waited nearly got a standard 6S.
    Battery seems great.
    Do you feel the quality of the hardware of the SE to be better than the 6S?

    I have a 6s on the Apple lease program but really want the SE for the extended battery life. 6s battery life is unbelievably bad
    The battery life is BETTER on the SE than the 6S?

    can anyone please tell if their screen has blueish or yellowish tint? my current iphone 6s has a dark, yellowish type of display and is almost zero visibility on direct sunlight unlike my former iphone 5 which had blueish tint and that was the best screen
    thanks!

    I am not totally certain but the yellowish tint will go away and the screen will become clearer (whiter) over time. I say this because my older phones (4s and 5s) have nice white (blueish?) screen, while my new SE and (a 6s I used to have) definitely have yellowish tint that makes screen a bi darker. It also has something to do with my screen brightness setting very low usually. But I set other phone at a similar brightness setting and still looks whiter.

    How about the front facing camera? Worse than 6s right?
    If You take selfies/FaceTime, 6s is better...for everything else, especially the form factor, SE is amazing.

    I also bought my iPhone SE today and I really love the classy design of the phone. I honestly hate the design of the 6 and 6s when it comes to the back and that's why I was never really happy with the 6s in terms of looks. The SE is nice to use one handed and that's what I really missed so much. It's also more practical during the day. Since I am mostly typing or sending sound messages and a little bit of news the SE in enough. The only downgrade I see coming from the 6s is the worse front camera and the resolution of the screen. Sure it's also good because it's small but I still see a difference compared to the 6s. I really wish apple would have made a sharper display with newer front camera than this phone would have been perfect.
    I honestly also have to get used to the smaller screen since I owned an 6 plus and after a 6s and now the SE. When it comes to battery for now it seems great but I have to test this for a few days since its just the first day of use.

    Does not matter what color you want. Could not find an SE in local store or Apple store. I ordered from Apple online, delivery 2 to 6 weeks. Done. I am getting Rose Gold. Not sure I like the white face so I ordered Black Titanium skin for the white front from dbrand skin. It is 3M skin, many colors. Many configurations for the SE. The site is great, you select which color phone you have, and start trying different colors and configurations. I only ordered for the front. Looks great! As for manly? I am comfortable in my manhood. I'll order any color I want. Enjoy.

    contrast ratio and reflectance of the iPhone 6S are far better than iPhone 5, so you should have your iPhone checked by Apple. It clearly is defective.

    Nice idea, I hadn't even thought about that. I wanted the Rose Gold, but I didn't want the white face. That would have been a nice idea.

    Got my SE yesterday (Friday the 15th) and am glad I upgraded. Love the snappiness, crispness and quickness of the phone compared to my old 5S.

    It didn't look defective indoors or in direct sunlight. But that's not important anymore, got my SE on Friday and sold 6S on ebay yesterday! Display on SE looks way better than on 6S. Finally I can hold and operate my phone with one hand. Just like old times!

    Apple need to get their act together on the bluetooth distortion problem, its a safety issue for drivers, they can't just leave people hanging, if they can't fix it with a software update they need to start the re call. Its a month now. This threads now up to 21 pages.
    Maybe they will wait till someone out of frustration of not hearing the caller picks up their phone and kills themselves or someone else.
    This is why we need/use bluetooth APPLE.
