    That's pretty good and a little shocking....anyone else just a little surprised the new SE doesn't look, at least a little, different than the old 5S? I thought they would have changed the look. This is not a gripe as the 5S is still the best looking phone ever made IMO...but, I'm a little surprised.

    I'm really not shocked, because the 5S design was awesome. I'm happy they brought it back with the updates. I'm leaning more towards getting the SE, but I might wait for the 7 to release later on this year.

    I'm definitely digging that price. I'm not one of the guys that needs a lot of space. If I don't use something for a while, I delete. All I need is 16 gigs and have never come close to using all of it. So...I'm pretty happy.

    Remember had it started at $449 (16GB) like the 5S, the 64GB would still be $499 just like the 5S. It's really only good news for whomever is looking for 16GB. They'd be the only ones to save $50.

    I feel exactly the same way. When I saw the price, I screamed and then freaked out for 5 minutes. (No really, I did.) I got myself to look at the specs and then I freaked out again. It is funny that it looks like the 5s though, but it's fine. We can assume that the same cases would fit, yes?

    Or for broke people with minimum wage jobs like myself who can't afford to buy their girlfriend the super expensive iPhone 6s. Where do people get the money to buy their 3 kids each a new iPhone.

    Not surprised by either honestly. It's been said all along it was going to look almost identical to the 5. And as far as the price, Apple has always had a low priced iPhone on the market. Whether they lowered the price on their third most recent product or introduced a new product (5c). So it wasn't a real surprise. It wouldn't make sense to price it close to the 6S, imo. The pricing is very respectable for this product to me and I honestly feel like anything higher would be a little too much.

    I used to work in retail and I would see it all the time. The latest iPhone releases and parents are rushing in to get their kids one. I wasn't so much shocked at the price they are spending but more the fact that they are actually buying their kids such expensive gadgets. Kids are the hardest on these things. Do I have the money to get my kid the most recent iPhone? Sure...WILL I? Nahhhhh.

    Personally I'm super happy with what I've seen of the iPhone SE so far. Quite often with small smartphones they get shafted when it comes to specs. So for Apple to include the CPU and camera from from the big boy iPhone 6S is pretty awesome in my book. The SE not having force touch is fine by me....it's not really a "must have" feature.

    Very stoked here as well. I think it really adds breadth to the lineup and gives the smaller iPhone people a reason to keep on using the size they love. Very good decision on the part of Apple.

    I think this is a great move on Apple's part. It always bothered me that every year it was something "newer" and "greater", i.e. "Best iPhone Ever". Can't we just stick with a model that works instead of always changing every year?! I know that's how they make tons of money. So I love that they went backwards and using the 5S model. My wife has it and loves it. Maybe I'll look into upgrading from the 5C now.

    I'd love the price if I lived in the US. Sadly it looks like us Canadians won't be catching a break with this one, probably with the phone costing more than just the conversion rate would let on.

    I'm seriously thinking about going from the 6s to the SE. I have always loved that size and would love to go back, even though I have adapted to the 4"7 size pretty well. My question is would I have enough space to go to a 16GB model. I have the 6s, 64GB model now. In Settings it says I have capacity of 55.5 GB with available showing 48.5. I also use the 50GB storage option in iCloud and have 46GB available there. I don't have a ton of apps....just a few trusted ones I use mainly. I use iCloud Photo Library for photos. Would anyone be able to tell from my current phone settings if a 16GB option would be feasible for me? I always go with the 64GB version and have tons of space left....thanks for any help and input!!

    To me, it sounds like you don't use most of your space so I think you'll be just fine with 16gb. I use my phone similarly.

    I have always had the 16GB versions. Have never needed more. I too use the Cloud. Quite simply, I never got why people keep apps and pictures that they never use, or look at on their phones. If a picture is that important...save it somewhere else. Simple. The only reason I've ever seen for having a lot of space is for someone that puts a ton of music or movies on their phone. I do neither, so, I'm good at 16 gigs.

    And that, Tank, along with price, is why the 16 gb is the most popular iPhone.

    I am shock about it when I watch the keynote on yesterday. And I said to myself I'm getting the IPhone SE. 16GB to me is enough because I'm using my LG G Stylo and that is 16GB so I'm use to 16GB anyway.
