Phone, camera, Apple Pay, fast 6s chip and 2gb ram. Hard to beat, don't care about the 1.2 mp front camera or lack of 3d touch, it hit all the high notes with better battery life to boot. All 5s cases fit and there are literally hundreds to choose from. Feels good in hand

New iPhone SE
Posted by: Music from: on
My 5s was stolen and the SE came out a week later. So happy. I didn't want the bigger 6s iPhone because the 5 style fits my purse, pockets better. Now I have all the upgrades of a 6s in the smaller size. It is so fast. I am having so much fun with it. I didn't give up any of the newer features

Small, powerful, lightweight.

Upgraded to a 64gb SE from an old outdated 3.5" iPhone 4. Was torn between the portability and handiness of the SE vs the bigger screen size of the 6/6s. Chose the SE and have been very happy with it. Small phone that packs a lot of hardware power. I expect the A9 processor and the reported 2gb cache to support many future iOS releases. All apps I've used respond very quick and snappy, as expected. App performance is also very good when the phone is connected up to my CarPlay equipped vehicle. Disappointed there is no built-in barometer, but not a deal breaker. 3D touch is also not available on this phone, but that was not something I was interested in. For those also torn between the screen size of the SE vs 6/6s - consider that you can pick up an inexpensive small tablet for the times you want a larger screen... perhaps using the money you save buying an SE over a 6/6s. This phone is a great value.

Before buying the IPhone SE I looked at reviews comparing the SE and 6S. After finding out that the battery was better on the SE and comparing the prices $49.99 vs. $299.99, there was not much more to consider. If you have a 5S you can get the SE and use your same case! The SE is a great deal!

Excellent for smaller hands
Posted by: TNT4Family from: on
My daughter loves this phone. Fast, agile, and fits her hands and pockets. The sturdiness of the design is solid. Fast processor and great phone in a slightly smaller design.

Perfect iPhone size
Posted by: rezalbym from: on
Just got my iPhone SE last week. It's true that it is much faster than the 5s and the addition of Apple Pay is well worth it. Also like the fact that it still can operate with one hand.

Great upgrade from 5s
Posted by: Mommyof3 from: Bottom of ipad on
Really wanted another small phone like the iPhone 5s to easily fit in my hand. This was it. Battery life is Better due to slightly bigger battery. Plus get the perks of the 6 and 6s. Love the camera. And the fact it has Apple Pay.

Great phone if you like the smaller size
Posted by: Xina from: on
I've been needing a new iPhone for a few years now, but the 6 and 6s were just a bit big for me. The SE is a great compromise with much of the speed and processing power of the 6s, but the size of the 5. It fits my needs very well.

Great price for the features
Posted by: ScottB from: on
All iPhones are expensive, but the iPhone SE is the best value of them all. You get almost all of the features of an iPhone 6S without the large bulky size of the 6S. Functions as well as expected.

iPhone 6 technology in the iPhone 5 form factor
Posted by: Beemer999 from: Columbia, MD on
Outstanding replacement for my iPhone 5! Have been waiting to upgrade because I found the iPhone 6, not to mention the 6+, way too big. Now I've got the latest performance, increased memory, and the same great sized package. Plus, all my iPhone 5-specific cases, holders, etc. still work.
