    I love the polished edges on the 5s. They just seem to make the phone sparkle. I think it's why the 5s is my favorite design yet. I'm on the fence, I do like the screen size of my 6s, but I really like the SE.

    I agree. Love the polished edges on the 5s. I also really like the matte finish on my SE.

    5s/SE is by far my favorite iPhone design of all time! This is why I'm rocking the SE now!

    I guess everyone is different. I absolutely prefer the matte finish over the polished finish.

    If I could keep the size and all the extras of my 6s while looking exactly like the SE I would be a happy camper.

    Even happier if I could find a case that had the look of the SE.

    My thoughts exactly! I think the size of my 6s is perfect for me. But the look of the 5s is just outstanding.

    The only thing holding me back is the screen size specifically the keyboard. I had such a hard time typing on it. And of course the screen size on the 6s is nice without being too unmanageable. I can still one hand it

    I was in the Apple Store today and I played with the SE and I just can't do it. It's so small to me now that I've so used to the 6S. It's a great looking phone but the size just isn't for me at all.

    I see a couple people mention the matte edges...does it really change the feel of the phone as opposed to the polished edges on the 5S?

    Nope it's totally cosmetic. Look at pictures of the 5s, (especially the space gray version) it just looks like it's got that little something extra. Makes it pop.

    I am going to have to agree here. Don't get me wrong, those polished edges were awesome, but after seeing the Painted matte edges, I love it.
    I can't wait to get this phone. Soon.

    Indeed, to me its a classic design. While the plus that I had was a nice phone, it was just too big for my day to day usage. The SE with its wonderful design is better suited for my needs

    I agree it would be hard to go back to a smaller screen. All I've had is the 4s, so it should be managable.

    Another thing, when I used my 5S it was primarily without a case. So that polish had some wear on it. The way they are now, the phone would look great all the time.

    Well, tbh the screen to front ratio of the SE is quite worse than the 6/6S series... A 4.7" iPhone SE would be huge.

    Btw I love the design of the iPhone SE, for sure

    Morphed from a BB Q!0; couple of observations:
    Will NOT show text messages, or emails, on my Acura Navigation screen; kind of weird, 'cause my my old phone did
    According to Apple, only cars with Apple Play, can do this
    The only Acura with Apple Play, is the NSX, which costs $200K!
    You can't email ITunes songs from your phone
    Email, & text attachments are backwards; 1st go to picture or document, then send
    Can't create a Ringtone, from your ITunes, on the phone; you have to purchase one for $1.29; I have 3,000 ITunes!
    Other than that, LOVE this phone
    Great browsers; battery life, Bluetooth, WiFi calling, and APPS, APPS, & more APPS, that WORK!

    There's a way to create a ringtone: How to create ringtones for your iPhone using iTunes

    This is old, but I'm pretty sure it will still work.

    Also check these out too: How To Make Any Song Your iPhone Ringtone How to Create a Free iPhone Ringtone Using a Song in iTunes

    Those are a little more recent.

    only if they designed it differently(physical design). it would be better for sure. it just feels like you shrinkgrade about 2years. but overall it's a fine phone. better than 5s.
