If you want the smaller screen that a lot of "tiny pocket" people wanted - then it's an option. Me, I have no problems with an iPhone 6 in a front pocket and my fingers are able to reach the screen points easily.
Last I heard, they are still having bluetooth issues with it. For the smaller screen, I've got an iPhone 5s that works just fine - and I mainly use it as a music player when taking a trip on the motorcycle - streaming it over my BT headset.

Since getting an iPhone 6 Plus a couple of years ago, I've preferred having a larger screen.

So it's really down to that personal preference really.

They seem to be selling super well in lower end markets, and actually including the US. It seems like there is still a huge user base which prefers smaller sized screens. In my honest opinion sales wise they made a great choice selling the SE, specially for countries in Latina America or China/India, etc.

The vote is how I would expect on a forum such as this, but it's definitely not representative of normal non-techy people I know in person. I know a couple of people who have upgraded to it from a 4, 4S and 5. The small screen is real winner with lots of people who just want a compact, speedy, functional iOS phone, but with a decent camera.

It's definitely not only selling well in low end markets. It's been limited stock around me in London since launch. Although I'm sure the the lower price does help, even in Western markets. It's a decent saving over a 6S.

I think it's great they decided not to gimp the internals and instead keep at as close on a par as possible to the 6S in a smaller package. I have a feeling Apple didn't anticipate how well it would sell seeing how low stock is in most major metropolitan Cities in the US, UK and some other markets.

Like Chris said, it's down to your personal needs. Get whatever suits you, all 3 are really great choices for different people. It's the best phone lineup Apple has ever had.

If I knew this existed I would've gotten it instead of a 5s... I don't need to carry around a gimped tablet in my pocket for personal use.

I bet this is what Apple wanted to release as the 6/6s but they have to compete with Android in the "bigger screen is better arena".

Not all Android users want a big screen, some of us prefer smaller more compact phones such as the Sony Xperia Z5 Compact (I have the earlier Z1 Compact).

I don't want a phone that's so big that I look like Dom Joly.
