    For those considering new rumored iPhone SE to be announced on the 21st, if you were to purchase this 4" model, which model would you be switching from?

    Why would you switch? Would you keep your current device just in case?

    my iPhone 6, it needs to offer 128gb storage & same camera as 6S, and a A9 chip. If not will wait for the next version.

    I will switch from a 6S if it offers the same cameras and 128GB. I don't care about 3D Touch.

    It will not offer the same specs as the 6s. Probably more like the 6.

    I'm considering a jump from the plus, though I'm still wondering at this stage whether the change will be too drastic and I'd be better off with the 6s.

    I'll make the final decision on the 21st.

    I'm considering a switch from a 6+ I want to go back to one handed use. I'm still glad that I got he 6+ over the 6, since they both were too big for one handed use, but large screens suck.

    My 18 year old daughter is considering switching from the 6s to the SE. She's only 5'1 with tiny hands and misses the one hand use of her 5c. She's paying for the phone herself, so she's trying to figure out if it makes financial sense. But from a usability standpoint, she's excited about Apple going back to a smaller model.

    Good luck with that. I would not be surprised if it came in 8 and 32gb only.

    Interesting....

    Do you have an iPad Air or iPad mini that has been used less since acquiring your 6+? Would your iPads get more use if you want back to a smaller phone?

    I'd like to go back to the 5S form factor, but I feel as though the SE will be disadvantaged with lack of features such as OIS, 3D Touch, and storage sizes.

    I think THAT'S the million dollar question. Are they going to spec (and thus price) this as a sub-premium line or a premium line but only smaller. We'll see soon.

    I've considered all iPhones since the 4S, although nothing has been interesting enough to make me jump from my 4.

    It's Apple, I think that's inevitable. They seem to always sell the better hardware in their physically-bigger machines. Maybe it's for the sake of simplifying it for the customer, I don't know.

    My wife will most likely be getting the SE. She'll be upgrading from her beloved 16GB 4(S). It's only now having major issues with battery and specs being able to keep up. She's not happy.

    I would be very surprised if the SE did not offer 16gb base.

    Hopefully it will come with a 64gb option and with either a8/a9 cpu + 2gb ram...pretty sure it will be a success.

    My guess is 16GB & 64GB only.

    I'd say there's a chance that Apple starts making 32GB the minimum this year, so it would have 32GB & 64GB options, but that's a long shot.

    Looking forward to going from a 6s Plus 128gb to an SE 64gb. Hopefully via the iPhone Upgrade Program's early upgrade option. Rumors and leaks in the last few years have been spot on, so I'm imagining this phone will, more or less, be a 6s in a 5s' body.

    None of the above option.

    Will consider the new 4" If the specs and price will fit my needs...

    The closer this phone will be to the $649 6s price, the more likely it will have all the goodies.

    At $550, there's a good chance it will have a9, 2gb ram, and updated camera. Improved touchid is probable...we'll know for sure, soon.

    Yeah, yeah, calm down. I forgot to add that when I made the poll. :oops:

    That's actually the phone my wife uses too.

    I went ahead and updated the poll for you.

    Considering it (coming from a 6), but depends on specs.

    Won't be able to do anything until September when my contract is up, after I see the 7 anyway - at which point I'm then in the awkward spot of getting the then 6 month old SE, or waiting 6 more months for the SE successor, should I decide I'd rather have a 4" device. Kind of sucks to be mid-cycle.

    It's premature right now to think the SE will be updated yearly...odds are that it won't.

    That's my other concern, if you were to wait until next March to find out nothing was coming, then you'd really be in a jam.
