    hey all, just wanted to see if there are any fellow SE users who love the phone but are considering the X? I went from a JB iPhone 7 back down to a SE and haven't looked back but sometimes wish I had the larger size and the better camera. I have an iPad Mini that normally handles the times I want to use apps or view photos on a larger screen but the SE is such a perfect size for talking on the phone, texting with one hand, and normal apps.

    What are the pro/cons to this? I get a bigger oled screen, new bezel-less design, wireless charging, face id (still skeptical), faster cpu, waterproof, dual cameras but lose headphone jack, no touch ID, and overall bigger phone (width is ok but much taller). Unsure how battery compares as the SE battery has been better than even an iPhone 7 Plus. Really tough for me to consider making the jump as none of the pros tip the scales for me.

    God no. There is no way I would give up usability and great user experience for a device full of gimmicks that costs $1500+ AUD.

    If iPhone 7 was too big for you then then the X isn't going to work for you either since it's slightly larger than the regular 7. Better stick with what you have.

    I’ve currently got an iPhone 7 and am considering dropping down to an SE.

    I had the 6 and 6S, too, but that form factor has always just been a little too large for my taste.

    Nope, I'm keeping the SE. This is the first time I haven't upgraded every other year since the 3G. Honestly, all phones are good enough these days, so it really doesn't matter anymore. The form factor is more important to me than new features.

    I had a 6 and happily upgraded to the SE as soon as it was released. The size is ideal for me. The one-handed use was key as well; I find it so annoying and impractical to use two hands with these larger phones, and never found the Reachability feature to be a substitute for the smaller screen size. If the bigger phones just don't feel right to you I would highly recommend switching to the SE. I don't regret it for a second and will never go back!

    Yep, I went from the 6 to the SE, too.

    Came from 5C to 6S to 7 to SE and I just love it. However I am really tempted by the X. Anyway there are a couple of weeks to decide.
