    I downgraded or upgraded from a 6S to a SE, depending on how you look at it.

    -So far I do not miss the 6S at all.

    - I haven't once tried to 3D Touch anything on the SE, to me it was a gimmicky feature of the 6S that I never really used.

    - The screen is not as bright and vibrant as the 6S which at times I do find myself missing.

    - being able to use the phone one handed is awesome.

    - I only notice the smaller size when I'm driving and have my phone docked, big difference when you're using it for maps.

    - great battery life

    - the vibration motor seems to be a cheap part

    I did the same thing a month ago and I can't imagine having a bigger phone than the SE now. The 6 series was an experiment for me and it convinced me that the original iPhone is the best iPhone. Enjoy yours !

    It's almost impossible for me to use that tiny display

    One of the big things I noticed going from the 6 to the 6S+ was the vibration engine. The new vibration engine is just ridiculous.

    Wish I had it in my 6+ ;) The motor in the 6+ is just like having a half-dead bumblebee in there - buzzing, but not generating any tactile vibrations for when it's in my pocket. The Taptic Engine equipped Watch isn't any better in that respect - I can barely feel the notifications or call alerts when they arrive.

    Did you ever do a reset on your watch. Many people had that issue when the watch first came out, but a reset fixed that for most people.

    It's the one main difference to me going back and forth using th 6s and SE is the display, not the size but the quality of the display. The 6s is very clear and vibrant, the SE doesn't have the same brightness or contrast to the display. It will be interesting to see how long Apple keeps this display on the SE.

    I do a reset once a week, but it's usually because the speaker gets too quiet - a reset fixes that, but no such luck with the haptics.
    Once I had to reset due to the speaker buzzing after a call I picked up on the Watch already ended - it ate up my whole battery in roughly an hour before I noticed the silent chirping coming from the speaker.
    I still have my original Pebble with a regular vibration motor - the Taptic Engine actuator has nothing on it in terms of intensity. ;)

    This is a price point-targeted product, and the display is not only of the more expensive components, but also one that was previouly flagship quality, so you can pretty much expect it not to change.
