How would you compare using Iphone 8 vs Iphone SE one handed, texting, reaching apps, etc.
Which do you like better for it?
Thanks for all your help!

That’s something you would have to try in person. I can use a plus one handed but my experience won’t be the same as everyone.

The SE is much easier to manipulate one-handed strictly because of the smaller form factor. Even with the 4.7 inch iPhone, I find myself using that more two-handed.

I had iPhone 6, slimest device in iPhones lineup, could use it easily 1 hand. had iPhone 5, same thing. A bit harder with iPhone X, it's so thick, and slightly too heavy..

It’s definitely not too heavy. Good idea above to print out a to scale device or even better go to a store where they have them and try it out in your hand

It's obvious the SE is better, but I'm using a 6s one-handed sometimes without issues.

I'm able to use my SE flawlessly with one hand. I'm was able to use my 7 and now X one handed too, but typing isn't as fluid as it is on my SE when I'm typing one handed.
