    That is what I was thinking. $550 for the 16gb and $650 for the 64gb. Anything less and I will be pleasantly shocked.

    That seems quite low tbh. If it is a 6S apart from the 3d touch, I expected to go for maybe £479? Cheaper then the starting 6S, because of smaller screen and no 3D touch.

    If it was a8 chip with the same camera from the 6, then that price would make sense. Unless apple is releasing two versions. A SE and a 5SE, the 5SE coming in at 250-350 pounds, and then the SE at £479? Apple would lose on a lot of profit margin if they put a A9 for this kind of price.

    Yep!! I remember 5c hype and many said it might be cheap. It wasn't. It was $550.

    (Side note: I hated the plastic and then really loved it the last year before getting a 5s. I actually wish I had the smooth back back. Bezels aren't as comfy)

    same. I love the way the 5c feels in hand. The plastic is actually really comfortable.

    I loved the 5c but went for the 5S instead because of the upgrades (touchID being the main one).

    5C price dropped quickly at 3rd party stores. shows how "cheap" an iPhone could be if every idiot (myself included) wouldnt fork out so much money for an iPhone :D

    That's why I'll wait to see what the Se will hold. If I don't like what it has (or rather what it doesn't have) I'll get the 6s. I loved my 5c, but the omission of touchID was a bummer.

    I have the 6S Plus and I really hate the size (just about managed with the 6, what was I thinking...?) so hopefully I can upgrade to an iPhone SE if the specs aren't too gimped.

    If the specs are as similar to the 6s as they are rumored to be, it definitely won't be any lower than $549/649 for 16GB/64GB. What is more likely is $599/699 if it really is just a small 6s without 3D Touch.

    On one hand I agree. On the other hand here seems.ti be a large enough.group of people who just want a smaller device. They seemingly font mind the price point of the larger devices, rather they mind the physical size of the larger devices.

    I'd be fine with $499/$599, but I'll buy it regardless.

    Before saying it's way too much... shouldn't we first find out what is in the phone.

    No one is twisting your arm to buy this...

    Hey, whatever happened to that 5c with TouchID photo that showed up on the Apple Store page about a year ago, and then quickly disappeared. What was that about? Probably not relevant anymore, but I always wondered how a mistake like that went up.

    I'm still hoping for a dark blue, plastic, flagship iPhone. A man can dream... a man can dream.

    It's not about buying or not. I just don't see the point if it's going to cost same as 4.7" 6S.

    Impossible to make any consideration about the price until we don't have any indication about what Apple is putting in it.

    6c with a8 replacing the 5s? And a fully fledged a9 4 inch metal version?

    Well considering the 6s starts at 650 it's not costing the same. And would line up perfectly with current pricing of 6s and 6s plus

    I just got my 5C back. It was my main phone for over a year and I bought a 6. Gave my son the 5C and used the 6 for over a year. Sold my 6 three months ago and got an Android and so did my son. Son wanted to sell the 5C and I wouldn't have it. Fond memories, so I got it back from him and just turned it on as my main phone again. In love with it all over again. It's so small compared to my 5.5" Android and feels great in the hand. With and without the Apple 5C case. Still very responsive too. If this new SE has similar specs/camera as the 6S, I may very well consider picking one up. Surprised how much I like the small size after having a couple bigger phones.
