    Target has a deal until Saturday $200 gift card w device payment plan. Found it accidentally today. Not really a question, just a general statement I guess, and thought I'd give everyone the heads up.

    If I have such a deal, I would consider buying it whether I have an iPhone or not.

    Do it. I've had one for a week, and the SE might just be my favourite iPhone ever. The battery life is amazing, and you forget how easy and good it feels to use a phone one handed. Typing, taking photos, walking with it in your pocket, is SO much easier. I adjusted to the screen size after a couple of hours. Not to mention, the 5 series form factor is my favourite and feels much better in hand the 'bar of soap' 6/7 series.

    Now the 6S feels like a Plus and feels comically large. I'll be selling the 6S shortly and won't be looking back.

    Whatever you do, just don't buy a 16 gb phone. It should not be legal to sell 16 gb phones in 2016.

    Agreed. The SE is amazing however, as most have said. Battery life is awesome (on 9, haven't updated it to 10)

    Recently sold my SE. It was a fantastic iPhone. Needed the extra screen space. But if I could back, I would. Sounds like a good deal.

    Personally the 5s has always been my favorite form factor. I don't mind the screen size, but I hate the small keyboard. I'm just going to pass some time and pick up a 7plus after a few bugs get worked out.

    Yeah really, my temp phone right now is an 8gb 4s, I sold my 6s in preparation for the 7plus, I have very few of my apps on it and less than 1g left in storage. WTF?

    Why??? The screen on that iPhone is the same size as a business card. That's just too small to look at. I realize we all had that size iPhone in the past, because that's all Apple had to offer. However I'd never think of going back to that size after having the 7 plus

    Yes, if you take advantage of this, go for the 64GB. You will be glad you did! I still have mine as a backup/ beta testing phone in the future. Otherwise, it was an all around great phone!

    True. If all you were subjected to was a 4 inch screen, then it would be easy to to adjust to. Once You try the 5.5 iPhone and then try the 4 inch SE, it would almost seem impossible to go back.

    I am using plus models ever since they came out as my main phone and using iPhone SE (iPhone 5S before) as my backup phone + pedometer and adding iPhone 7 Jet black this year to complete the lineup (i love switching between sizes)

    Go for the SE man! I've got my SE a week ago and it's the best phone for me! I could have bought the 6s but the big screen it's not for me.

    If they allowed this for T-Mobile I would actually bite and have the SE as my running phone lol.
