    With phones getting bigger and bigger, more and more people have gotten to really embrace the bigger screens. They are great to look at and watch video but I just find them a little hard to tote around without getting in the way. I've been an apple user in the past but went to Android years ago where I was a Sony Z compact user. Love the size vs screen. I actually find the 6s a little big with unnecessary bezels. I recently picked up my son's old ip5 and I'm finding myself liking it alot. It's a little slow and battery stinks but with the posible announcement of a 5se I'm very interested with its supposed 6s internals. Anyway, is anyone else interested or even excited about this size phone agian or do you consider it a step back?

    Welcome to iMore

    I agree and plan on upgrading my 5s to the new 4 inch model as I'm likely what I heard so far

    I like it, but probably not instantly. I'll wait.

    I would wait to see battery life and then give it consideration. That is just me.

    Exactly this 🏾️. There's just no way my eyes would accept a 4" screen again.

    I've already gotten accustomed to the bigger screen. No turning back for me!

    I don't think I could go back to the smaller screen. It seems almost claustrophobic now. But I'll use it for a few weeks and see if that changes. The human brain is remarkably pliable. And it resets normal fairly quickly.

    The larger screen is the only reason I use the iPhone as my daily phone. So no I won't be getting a smaller iPhone if released.

    I am going to the Plus next phone, but my sons will most likely go to 5se. I've got use to the 6 and now it's time for the Plus. Age and eyes are dictating my decision. Price and size is dictating my sons decision.

    Thanks for the replies. I can afford any of the models but I just prefer a smaller manageable phone. I see many older people still using a 5 or 5s. If you can't see right, ain't nothing gonna help without glasses lol. I think the reason why people would buy would be for the manageable size and I'm guessing Apple is on the same train of thought. Just don't know if this will be enough for it to be successful. My guess is that if it's spec'd and marketed as "no compromise" with excellent feedback, the nostalgic will be tempted to buy and many may be tempted when they realize it's no 5c as in low to mid tier.

    I'll bet it's a huge seller overseas, especially in areas like India that can't typically afford the more expensive models.

    India needs a $250 model to sell to the masses so people can afford it. The iPhone 5se or whatever they call it is going to be $550 I think which brings it out of the budget category imo. I mean this IS Apple where talking about. Again I'm not sure that this is going to be as watered down as some think like having the a9/m9 with all the trimmings sans 3d touch, improved camara, nfc for mobile payments ect..
    If its like a 5c, I'd be pissed.lol. Btw, the 5c wasn't cheap either..

    Good points. And very true about the 5c! My wife had one and loved it and we still have some users around here that stand by their 5c. I think they're crazy.

    I'll be staying with my 6S plus also, but I would like to see the bezel reduced in size.

    I'll be sticking with the Plus for. T daily driver as long as Apple has it. My nails are sometimes too long for the 6s I use for work, so I know it'll be brutal trying to type on a 4" screen.

    My wife and I are (depending on battery and price). I have a 6+ and she has a 6 and would love to have a smaller footprint. THE reason i went with the 6+ is battery life, so that's a big factor. Probably will switch carriers and let them pay off my 6+ and sell my wife's phone for money in the bank.

    I agree but I think there's a market for a smaller device. We'll know soon enough!

    I will more than likely pick up the SE for my daughter this fall. It will be her first new iPhone. She is using a 4 now so it will be quite the upgrade. I was going to let her have my older daughters 6 but, I think she will choose the new SE if given a choice.
