    Depends on what you are after. There’s no correct response to this.

    From Apple at full retail price? no.

    On a contract where the fact it’s an old model is taken into account by the fact it’s much cheaper than it was when it launched? Then yes if it’s a good enough phone for you.

    How can you expect anyone to give a useful response with no information? How are we supposed to know what’s best for you?

    Should you? Only You can make that decision, which feel free to elaborate more details on why you are considering it for what reasons.

    Browse swappa and check prices. I wouldn’t pay full retail for it at this point.

    Very few consumers pay full retail for an iPhone SE, that would rather be a poor decision given it’s already well over two years old, and you can find these phones unlocked for $150.

    Great phone still. Got another AT&T prepaid model for under $200 and I still think that’s a deal. Depends on the users preference and usage though.

    iPhone SE AT&T Go brand new is $150-199 with full warranty FYI. Not sure what carrier you use but some great deals on other prepaid carriers as well. Either way hope you enjoy!

    I think the SE is dead end form factor. Apple has stretched the iPhone 5 body style of 5.5 years now.

    The A9 chip (2015 release on the 6S) and 2017 iPad (budget model 5th gen). Apple will stop selling the 6S by September

    A shame if that's the case. My mom doesn't want anything bigger because the SE is the limit of pocketability for her. I bought her a $150 32GB iPhone SE GoPhone kit as backup to her current one just in case. She lasted until 2016 using the iPad 3 so I expect she'll be fine with the iPhone SE's performance for a few years more.

    If I needed a cell phone today, I would absolutely buy an SE. My SE does everything I need a cell phone to do in the perfect-sized package, so until they introduce a new feature that I want (last was Touch ID/Apple Pay) the SE can’t do, or until it becomes too slow to make calls, send texts, get email, and play music, I could use the SE forever.

    But then again, I HATE large phones.

    I Think Apple will retain iPhone SE in their lineup for at least another year even if they do discontinue the iPhone 6s. At which point, 2018 does not seem like a likely year for the iPhone SE refresh, but 2019 could be a possibility. But given that Apple is expected to launch three iPhones in October, I certainly don’t see the SE being updated as a fourth iPhone alongside the 6.1/5.8/6.5 iPhones. Unless an SE two launch is prior to the fall keynote sometime during around WWDC in June.
