    Me too. My gold 16gb is out for delivery right now. Gotta leave for work at 1600 so I have two more hours. I did the pre-signature thing but we are supposed to get bad weather tonight.

    I feel ya' man...

    My "delivers April 1st" phone isn't coming until next week (at which point I will return it) and so I just went to my local store and grabbed one easily.

    Not really sure why I pre-order online as I always seem to end up getting new Apple stuff sooner/easier by just going to the store nowadays.

    It's WAY more comfortable in my hand to have 4" again, but I have to say that I keep trying to use 3D Touch for different things, and then remembering the SE doesn't have it. We'll see how big of a deal it is to me.

    While I'm not at the OPs orgasmic level ;) ... I still am pretty damn hyped that I never again have to use that stupid reachability gimmick or hand gymnastics to have my thumb reach the entire screen.

    The fact that the SE looks better, has a flat screen (glass protectors work!), and much better battery life are all just gravy baby :cool:

    You people have waited and waited and at last Apple gives you a great 4" phone. I could never make do with a 4" phone but was wondering how it felt in your hands. Does it have that quality "feel" everyone was hoping for?

    Congrats to you and thanks to Apple for giving us all a choice.

    Agree with this totally. I'm not giving up my plus, but I admire everyone that held out for a 4 inch screen. You guys moved the needle and made Apple Pay attention to customers. Way to go...hope the phone is everything you all hoped for!

    I didn't hold out.....I'm going from a 128gb 6 to a 64gb SE just so I can go back to a smaller device. My only regret is that it doesn't have the faster Touch ID sensor, which I REALLY wanted in my next iPhone, but my 6 doesn't have it anyway.

    Just pickup a 5s and you'll know how the SE feels. :)

    It'll be interesting to see how many people do this. I can see the upside (even though I'm not sure I would do it myself). Better ergonomics, better performance and better battery is a prettt compelling reason to go 6>SE.

    Not as euphoric per se, but it does feel very good to be back to a 4". I do miss the big display of the 6 Plus, but one handed operation trumps that for me. Plus being able to put it in my pocket and sit down is a plus.

    The unit feels solid as well. Very nice.

    How many of you went to the SE from a 6S or 6S+?

    like to know this as well! and how ''bad'' is it to go from 4''7 to 4''inch again?

    There was another thread asking this exact question and I was surprised by how many people went from the S to the SE.

    Per "se" ... I see what you did there. :)

    If they would've put the same quality screen into the SE, I would've been all over this.

    Yeah. I got an SE today and it's not so much the screen quality that I notice, as much as the keyboard and lack of 3D Touch. I also seem to have slightly lower cell reception with my SE compared to my 6S.

    I did, it's 100x better for me, it isn't a problem at all I got used to the smaller screen immediately.

    I'm still occasionally using double tap home for reachability on the SE as I anticipate a stretch lol
