    …and cracked the screen on the lower quarter by the Home button. It will likely hold together for a month or so but it looks like I'll be needing a new phone soon.

    Because of my very light phone usage (maybe 1 call per day and 2 or 3 texts) and hardly anything else, it's hard to justify replacing my 6 with a 6S or higher. For about $300 I can get a decent Moto on Android, but I'd rather avoid the hassle by paying $50 more and staying with Apple (even though they annoy me a lot lately). So when I make the trip to the Apple Store I'll likely downgrade to a SE.

    I don't anticipate any problems but I thought I'd ask: Any issues going from my light-usage iPhone 6 to a SE other than dealing with a smaller size?

    If you're talking about the SE, the general issues have been noted (yellowing screen, etc), but you should see a battery life increase and a performance increase from the 6.

    Other than form factor, I don't think you would mind much, unless you cannot stand the 4" screen.

    Yeah what is a CS?

    If you meant 5S then Apple don’t sell it anymore & if you meant SE then its certainly an upgrade from your 6.

    The front glass lens can be replaced for less than $100.

    The part costs less than $10 and many shops will charge around $50 for the labor.

    Yes. I meant the SE. I was thinking about Adobe CS and got confused. I've fixed the OP.

    Since you are in the mood to spend my money, maybe I should get two.

    Why don't you just fix the screen instead of getting a new phone?

    The SE is awesome-there’s actually an entire thread here called exactly that. It’s a budget phone, but it runs like the wind. For light use, it’s exactly what you need.
