    Bet you were not surprised either. She made a great choice. The 6s will do well for her and last her several years

    Update... compared all models with her last night, and the phone of choice seems to be the iPhone 6s.
    I think it's the best choice.

    My mother will kick and scream to an AT&T store when it comes time to change out her iPhone 4 with either an SE or the iPhone 6. Personally, I’d like her to get the iPhone 6S (or 7S whenever it comes out) because of its larger screen size. (To be honest, ever since I’ve had the 6S, every other iPhone size seems to look too small for me.) However, I think she’ll gravitate to the SE simply because she’s cheap. (I can also remind her she spent $500 on $5 or less “antiques” so spending $299 for an SE won’t be as bad.)

    The 6s seemed like the 'just right' size to her. SE was too small, but she did prefer it over the 6s Plus.

    Easier to hold and pocket for sure... but as always, tradeoffs!

    I wouldn't assume your mom wants a small screen phone . My mom uses a 6plus because she couldn't see the screen too well anymore on her 4s. Women in general are better equipped for larger phones because it's easily stored in a purse. I would look at a phone with a bigger screen. I think the se is perfect for people that pocket their phone and use a tablet for media consumption
    I agree fully.. I women with a purse can handle a 6S Plus much easier. I had the plus since launch and it became a pain in the **** to carry around, so I just switched to the 6s and am thinking about going even smaller to the SE. Having it slip comfortably into my pocket is like gaining another hand!

    SE for a phone and Ipad Pro for consumption and a MacBook Pro for work.... The holy trinity of tech!

    My mother went from 4S to SE yesterday. She loves the Live Photos and flash of front camera. She got to play with the 6s & 6s+ but said they are way to big for her.

    I'd say if you have bad eyes, you'd have glasses anyway right? So I don't get the "I'm old and need a big screen". Most of the older people I see actually have the older smaller iphones. So I think eyesight is not the most important thing when considering a phone , it's still the convenient size.

    Ok...I think I know how to post on a forum now. Sheesh!

    James, I think your Mom made the perfect choice. The 6s is more "future proof" for her advancing years...and eyes, plus she'll enjoy the ease of operation that comes from the multi-touch screen. It's a more solid package.
