    I think I will get gold one. I am still thinking about 6s but I think that 6S is a little too big for me.

    Have a 6s Plus. Don't have problem with the size and love the large screen. But think Apple was way smart to offer upgraded internals in 5se platform. Many people want smaller phone, and more moderate price will jump sales numbers.

    Space grey 64gb as soon as it comes up on the Apple Store.

    Been told it will be 7.00am here in the UK, so only 6 hours and 41 minutes to go.

    Yes. I'm replacing my iPhone 6 for a 5SE. I'll be rocking the 5SE and Nexus 6P.

    - Excellent
    - I have one on the wall
    - That's all it needs to scan gift cards
    - It's a phone, not a computer
    - Faster than a passcode
    - What's that?
    - It's a phone, not an iPad

    Im 'buying' one, free on my upgrade. Only used for cellular calls thought. My 6 plus is used for everything else from a dedicated satnav and BT music hub etc. My thumbs are too big to use chat apps on an SE! I can easily use the + one handed. I can hold a basketball with my palm lol

    Curious: what are your thoughts about having a smaller screen phone AND a phablet at the same time?

    - considerably cheaper than the phone that has those things in addition to having a much more manageable size for those who want the smaller phone.

    I see that all you've done there is listed the exact hardware specs that make it different to the current 6S in order to find something wrong with it to say "It's not worth buying" or "I's unworthy of a keynote introduction" (as I saw someone legitimately type without irony on these forums a couple of days ago).

    I mean, maybe I'm wrong, but it's hardly like people were make-or-break on the inclusion of the barometer.

    Given that the phone is £174 cheaper (64GB 6S vs 64GB SE) I think those compromises are just fine, especially since the majority of those looking to buy one are coming from the 5S and prior models.

    Also what's all the fuss about the original Touch ID sensor? Assuming it's the one I have on the 5S right now, I can't say I've ever had a problem with it being "too slow". If it were any faster then clicking the home button to glance at the lock screen would be impossible unless I faked it out with a non-approved finger (and thus risked disabling TouchID with repeated failed unlock attempts).

    Goodness this phone must offend you so much that you feel compelled to bag it in every single thread it is mentioned. The question was are you buying one, not what don't you like about it.

    Regardless, the 5SE has an ideal form factor for many, better battery life than the 6S, is significantly cheaper. Plenty of people won't buy the 128GB model anyway, Touch ID 1 is perfectly good for many (and is still on the iPad Pro etc) and plenty of people don't give a damn about the front camera.

    I'm buying one at some stage as it is the perfect phone for me - all the performance enhancements of the 6S, without the bigger screen, plus a better battery life. Win win win.

    No. Too small.

    Good on Apple to upgrade the internals and sell it at such a great price for those who like that size.

    Best of both worlds: Android and iOS. When I run (mainly to listen to music), I dislike carrying my big Nexus 6P on my arm. I am not into tablets (tried them, but not for me. I always tend to pick up my phone). I never have both phones with me at the same time, though. It really all depends on where I am going and what I am wearing. But, I've always had an iOS and Android device at the same time.
