    Its going back. Didn't take long for the novelty of the smaller screen to wear off. There's a reason people were clammoring for a bigger iPhone after a few years. The smaller keyboard and typing errors along with the unexpected eye strain getting use to everything being smaller than I have been used to the last 3 years made this an easy decision. Picking up a G5 tomorrow.

    Ouch. My wife and I --a long time Apple disdainer --each picked up a 6s Plus and love it!

    It's true. I'm sure I'm not the first or the last. Definitely wears off fast. The keyboard errors are going to annoy many and less information on the screen than you're used to is also gonna be a deal breaker. Good luck to those who keep it, but it's definitely a time travel back to the days when 4" was our only option.

    Switching between Note 4 (5.7") and 4S (3.5") - highlights the small keypad - to the extent had to use swipying software on iOS to make the keys work

    I have two LGs (G4 and Power) and nothing Apple makes is even in the same league. You could not pay me to go back to an iPhone again.

    You posted a thread a few days ago talking about how people would be 'downgrading' to the SE, so why on earth would you buy one? :rolleyes:

    You had to buy one to figure this out? Couldn't just go into a store?

    Enjoy the LG. I like my washer and dryer from them.

    For those of us who never owned the larger ones, it's not going to be a problem. :D

    I bought a bigger one and did not like the size. I probably would have lived with it except that I started experiencing some weird things with voicemail. So rather than exchange it, I chose to return it and go back to my 5s.

    Good luck with the G5. Numerous reports of bad light bleed on the panel as well as manufacturing defects like uneven gaps where the modular piece is connected and minute bulging in the back frame itself.

    That didn't take very long ;-) How about your Apple Watch : its going to become a dumb watch if you start using the LG phone (unless you plan to sell it).

    Cheers !

    Yeah, I think the SE would be a great telephone - that is if most people actually talked on their phones. Most don't do that anymore - opting for text, email, Skype. And that tiny screen will start to cause eye-strain problems after awhile...Of course if you are a youngster with good eyes, it is a moot issue.

    Unless people are using the bigger phones with zoom enabled, the UI elements are the same size if I'm not wrong (text, icons, etc.). I don't understand why all of you talk about eye-strain.

    Lol. I think you disliked the SE before you even opened the box.

    1.5 years later and typing on my 6 is nowhere near as accurate as on my 4s.
