This phone just keeps getting better and better: A13, Water proof, wireless charging, wide camera, wifi 6. Nothing in the current lineup can touch this value.

Definitely going to trade in my iPhone X for $320, use the Apple Card for immediate 3% cash back on the full amount, and call it a day.

Thank You, Timmy!
That might have been the single most dramatic comment I’ve ever read. ? sure it’s a little bit bigger, and it’ll feel weird for a day or two, but you’ll get used to it. I promise. Going back to the iPod touch sized phones now feels like I’m trying to type on a credit card.

Nope. Tried out the iPhone 6. Returned to SE. There is simply not much more space in my life for a bigger phone. You all might be confused but one day You will realise, that I was right.

I did not get used to it for the entire year of owning iPhone 6 nor the 6 months of owning iPhone 6S. Bought 1st Gen iPhone SE day 1 and I'll never "upgrade" to a larger phone again.

What space in your life was affected by adding .7" to your phone?
For me, running with a larger phone is pretty terrible. My current SE fits snuggly in small zipper side pockets. Can't do that with a bigger phone. I'll stick with my SE a big longer, but eventually will have to look for alternatives since Apple keeps trying to force larger screens on their user base. I'd imagine many SE users would have upgraded by now if they didn't care about the screen size. There have been countless deals offered on iPhones released since the SE, if someone wanted a bigger screen, they likely would have upgraded by now.
