    Are people with the SE finding that their Touch ID sensors are remaining reliable still or have they degraded with time, like the 5S was susceptible to? I only had an SE for an afternoon because it was defective. That brief period seemed reliable and just a bit slower than my 6S.

    Far better than 5S and just perfectly slow compared to the 6S. I have my SE from 31st of March.

    My 6 got slow and unreliable over months, so when I got my SE it seems faster the plan the 6 at first. Still seems as fast and reliable as launch day, but it's been less than 2 weeks since launch.

    I only have my 6s to compare but what I have noticed about the SE is that not only is it slower but I actually have to press the home button down a bit for the touch id to register, on my 6s I only have to place my thumb on the home button and it opens, the SE I have to press down slightly. They work very differently in speed and action.

    The SE has gen one and the 6s has gen 2. Gen 2 is much faster. I myself prefer the speed of Touch ID on my SE compared to my work 6s. So far I haven't had any problems. I also didn't have any problems on my 5s before I upgraded to the 6 or my 6 before I got my SE. All purchased and used since their respective launch days.

    What was defective about your SE?

    My SE is rock solid. My old 6 used to slow down and I would have to retrain the sensor for my fingerprints but my SE has been rock solid and semi quick for the time that I have owned it. Not a fan of the 2nd gen TouchID. If Apple wants to remain on the 2nd gen for the next iPhone they should give us an option of how quick we would like the Lockscreen to fade to the home screen.

    The 5S only had issues in the beginning which were resolved with a software update.

    "Remaining reliable" and not "degrading with time" in 10 days?!? :confused:

    Also, of course it was slower than your 6S. The 6S has a newer (read: faster) TouchID sensor.
