    I'm a fan of it. It's nice not having to press the home/power button to see if I have any new notifications

    I tried it...I find it shuts off too quickly, and I don't like that there's not a way to calibrate it at all. It doesn't activate in a way that's natural for how I use my device, so I disabled it.

    It's nice. Good for a quick glance and has the added benefit of also sleeping the display quickly when you put it back down.

    I like the feature but like others said the screen goes back to sleep too quick. For example I picked up phone in middle of night to check time. Saw two texts on my screen but befor I could even read the preview of those texts it went back to sleep. Also sometimes pulling it out of my pocket it doesn't always wake when I want it to. Needs some adjustments...

    It's too sensitive or something, it kept waking up even when horizontal. And it was turning on the screen in my pocket.

    I turned it off. Like most of iOS 10, it's half-baked.

    I use it, works extremely well for me. Nice to just tilt it toward me when its on my desk to see the time and notifications.

    Took me a while to get used too it, muscle memory from years of not having that feature have me instinctively hitting the home/lock button especially when pulling it out of my pocket.

    After less than a week, I'm still getting used to it, and also have to stop myself from hitting the home button to see the screen, but I really like it. It isn't perfect, but it works.

    When I had it on my 6+, I didn't like it, but I don't mind it at all on my 7+.

    Nothing is perfect, but this really is the best feature ever in IOS 10 for the 6s and above. One less physical button to press. This is a great button saver and a quicker way to turn on the screen.

    Like anything else, takes a while to get used to. Occasionally, it does not come on as intended due to the angle it was raised but I've learned to quickly placed it back in the horizontal position and raise it up to the vertical position and it just works. Easy!

    It does turn on in my front pocket if standing up from a sitting position. That's like 3 seconds of screen on-time times the number of sitting/standing motions a day while it's in my pocket. So if I average that motion (while it is in my pocket) say 100 times a day, that's only 300 seconds or 5 minutes wasted screen-on time a day. Hardly a noticeable hit on battery life, unless one it obsessed about battery life.

    No impact on battery life on my SE. Raise to wake is the best feature.Sadly, older devices are not capable of support it!

    I'd like to use it, but being on a 6 and having decided to skip the 7 (hate the jack removal), I am unable.

    are you going to skip all iphones from here on out? i don't think the headphone jack is coming back to those in the future.

    I honestly don't know yet.

    Have owned several iPhone models since the 3G, so have been a loyal customer and I'm out of contract now so should've been their ideal target market. We'll see what next year brings.

    Buy an 6s.Problem solved. Now is $ 100 cheaper. My advice; buy an 6s, SE.and then you will get raise to wake!! Both phones include headphone jack no worry!!!

    Does it decrease your battery a lot using it?

    I like it and use it. Gives a quick glimpse of any notifications I missed.

    Yup. And I also enable unlocking via Touch ID just by touching it (vs having to press it). So now I can unlock my 6S from standby without even physically pressing any button, just like my cheap Android (Vivo V3).
