Is anyone that left a 6/6s 6+/6s+ for the iPhone SE feeling any regret or buyers remorse? Or is anyone on the fence about which phone you want to keep? Curious how folks are feeling about the different screen sizes now that the phone is out...

Not yet- it is a total improvement over my Galaxy S3 and I have been using the 4" Ipod Touch 6 for the last 7 or 8 months. The only thing that bugs me is that there isn't a 128gb option so I could store all my music. Not sure how much data google's play music uses when I am not near wifi.

None so far. Happily gave my son my 6s. I do notice that the Touch ID is a fair amount slowed but I programmed one print a couple times and all is well. Loving it!

Perhaps, though I'm still undecided. Side by side with my iPhone 5, the signal seems to have dropped from 4 blobs to 2 blobs strength and it can only find our 2.4Ghz wifi network whereas the 5 could easily lock on to our 5Ghz

No regrets here. I honestly thought I would go nuts typing on the se especially after having a iPhone 6 Plus last year and a 6s plus this year. When I got the phone today and started using it I felt like a old love came back to my life. This phone is amazing.

Only regret so far is getting a bad screen (really yellow on the top), but that's not the phones fault. I'll simply return / rebuy and all will be good :)

Take time to pick up my muscle memory of using 5s. Other than that it has been all great!

I'm very happy with my SE, much different then my 6 plus, but as noted typing will be as I get reacquainted with the smaller keyboard.

Some games, that I've played are better suited for the larger display, but that's understandable. Overall, I'm very happy with it.

I'm using swype, though I do prefer the normal keyboard. I do think the Android and windows phones have a better implementation of third party keyboards, but swype seems decent enough.

but now you can actually use the home button to look at notifications on your lock screen :)
before it was too fast to do this. It is something I was actually looking forward to "downgrading" to.

Happy with the camera, speed, RAM, and battery life upgrades over the 5S.

Tried the bigger form factors but always ended up back on the 5 or 5S for the size.

The 'slower' TouchID works for me as someone who wants to see the lock screen.

I'm starting to adjust back to the 4" size after using the Plus sized iPhones for almost 2 years. However, I am starting to like it more.

I'm testing it until next week to decide if I want to keep that or the 6S Plus. For now, I am undecided.

Kind of OT but as an alternative to using multiple slots for the same finger you can also continue to "train" the single entry. Go to settings, touch ID & passcodes, and then place that finger on the home button. The entry which corresponds to that finger will be highlighted for a moment (grey background) when it's recognized.

You can continue to remove and place the finger on the sensor at different angles and move it around (gradually) which will improve recognition. This also happens automatically as you use Touch ID, but doing it this way accelerates the process.
