    I got my iPhone SE 64GB Space Gray on Friday April 1st and couldn't be happier. I haven't been on here much but it seems like everyone is happy after having had the phone for a few days. I came from an iPhone 6 and it's an upgrade for me, in terms of specs.

    I would have upgraded to the 7 in September if this never came, so I wasn't willing to go down to the 5s just to have the 4" form factor back. But now that it's an option, I love it. And we'll see what the future holds, but for now I plan on keeping the SE until the next 4" upgrade comes around. Depends on how frequent Apple intends to update this. I do love the price...I have been buying iPhones full-price for years, it's so nice to be able to get the iPhone I want and not pay $800+.

    I would describe myself as a medium-usage iPhone user. Believe it or not, I do like to watch videos on my phone, but I don't have any problems doing that on a 4" screen. My MacBook is my powerhouse though, so for a lot of tasks I do prefer using the Mac rather than my phone. For the things I do on my phone, there is no difference between a 4" and 4.7" phone...and I love being able to comfortably use the SE with one hand.

    The SE also complements my 12" MacBook perfectly...I guess I'm just the target audience for these smaller devices. What was left out of the SE doesn't bother me in the slightest...this is a flagship iPhone as far as I'm concerned.

    Glad I'm not the only one. I bought this one as a back-up for my 6S Plus and it's a little beast. I'll give it another week or two, but I'm leaning towards using this as my main smart phone.

    I really hope apple give it a 128 option in september maybe like they did with the 12.9 this march... I have 85gb of my 128gb 6 full so cant really manage with a 64. I got a 5s in january for 250 pounds so already have a backup phone.

    Glad its working great for you, now even more jealous hehe

    I came from a 128GB actually, but I more so got it so I wouldn't ever have to worry about space. And I was only using about 40GB, so I'll be fine with 64. If the max were 32GB, then I definitely wouldn't have switched.

    Who has what processors are in your phone? TSMC or Samsung?

    Everyone likes different things. I switched from a iPhone 5 (aka slow SE) to a 6+ and I'll never go back to a little "device" again. These things really aren't phones. They're mini computers that can make phone calls too.
    I don't see the point of having a nice camera... To only end up having to view the picture on a tiny 4" screen. My hands and fingers are not small. The 5 variants (size) seem like they're made for women and children's hands and men with smaller hands and fingers.

    There's something non ergonomic in a device that has your typing finger block four keys from being visible while you hunt and peck. . Too small for me.

    But I know plenty who have returned/sold their 6+ to get the smaller phone.
