OK, yes this is a question asked with every new iPhone release, but it seems more important with the SE. Everyone raves about the 5/5s design, how comfortable it is in the hand, etc. I do love the flat edges for the ability to have it lay on its side on a desk. I did buy the Apple leather case for the SE, but we'll see how that goes. I typically do use cases on my iPhones...but with this being a smaller phone, more pocketable, one-handed usage, and not slippery like the 6/6s...the appeal for a case may be different here.
