Guys!

I have a question for those who switched from 6S to SE.

Is the camera output exactly the same? I mean no quality differences between 6S & SE?
Battery life is supposed to be better right? but by how much? do you notice a big difference?

I would then switch back to the 6s. Better design, better resolution, better camera, 3d touch, bigger screen, faster touch ID, etc.
You just listed a bunch of 6s cons and a false statement. Ironically, your false statement is the only thing OP was asking about. The SE and 6s have the exact same camera.

Your comment is irrelevant though because OP doesn't care which phone you prefer. He was specifically asking about the camera quality. My previous post was simply a jest of the person I quoted.

Well, I'm jesting back ;)

And oh lord. Please tell me which cons do you think I've listed, lol

Is this your alt? Does no one pay attention to specs on these forums? Someone else please prove why taking photos is better on the 6s models
The SE and 6s have same primary camera.

The front facing camera used for FaceTime (and selfies) is 1.2mp still on the SE. Thats probably what you mean to say.

The design, bigger screen, and faster Touch ID are all cons for me.
Completely disagree. I didn't know opinions could be so different

Who is to say which camera is the primary camera? Many people are taking more shots through the front face anyways

Switching to the SE makes sense if you prefer the smaller form factor and want the better battery life

I have a 6s and if the SE had been available when I bought it, I would have gotten the SE
It's still a downgrade.

I could totally rock the SE. Loved the 5.

I use 3D Touch ALL the time though so I'd only have to get use to that and smaller screen.

According to your logic, there's no choice but the 6s Plus. It has better battery life, a slightly better camera (OIS), and a bigger, higher resolution screen. If you already bought a 6s Plus, switching to the 6s makes sense if you want to downgrade.

Or if you just want a smaller device. Funny how some people seem to forget how important that is to others.

If opinions were all the same, they wouldn't be opinions.

When people review phones and they talk about picture-taking and the camera...they're mainly referring to the camera on the back of the phone.

Having selfies may be important to you...but the front facing camera is not the main camera.

Dem's the facts...I just report it.

It was sarcasm if you didn't notice

Doesn't change the fact that the 6s has a better camera

why is it, that, here on this forum that most of the time bigger is better? Is this typical American?

someone (OP) is asking a serious question and often in 2 days it ends up in a bigger = better discussion

That's 100% not what's being asked.

The camera is literally the same. The front-facing camera, however, is still the one from the 5S.
I'm just saying the SE isn't the "latest and greatest"

The 6s is still Apples #1
