Took one for the team.. I ordered an iPhone SE (2020)

The 6s battery is at 80% life and acting b0rked. The lightning port is harder and harder to clean. At least I get wireless charging and do not have to use annoying facial recognition. I guess I have to look for a case now. And a wireless charging car stand. I do have a lightning audio adapter.

What's annoying about facial recognition? I think it's great on my Xs.

I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

I like the fingerprint.. I can unlock my phone without looking at it. Good for car use.

Or for use with a mask.

You can do the same with Face ID, as long as the front camera can see your face.

I agree with davester, Face ID is pretty nice.

Good choice—it's a nice little phone.

…do not have to use annoying facial recognition.

I'm not sure why you find it annoying. It's super-fast and super-reliable.

Wait…what!? Stop it. That's both dangerous and illegal in many jurisdictions. Use CarPlay.

AA— old cars no CarPlay. Phone is mounted on the top half of the dash so my eyes don’t leave the road.

I like the fingerprint ID too. I also like having a area at the bottom of the screen to place my thumb to hold my iPhone, don't think I can do that without activating something with the more expensive models. Looking at getting a 128Gb SE soon, my iPhone 7 getting a bit long in the tooth.

We had a lot of trouble with our 6s' with fingerprint ID. It works great on the SE 2020's that we bought.

Car use? That makes no sense. Don't you have a car dash or windshield mount? It works perfectly well in my car.

I guess I have to look for a case now.

I pulled the trigger on one also a month or so ago to replace an aging iPhone 5s

As far as a Case - most iPhone 8 cases fit perfectly but do not show the Apple logo through the hole in the rear.

Not all cars have CarPlay.

cbelt, I think you'll be quite happy. Let us know!

We switched my wife from Tracfone to my Verizon and got a SE(2020) in the process. She had the original SE and liked the small form factor, but she says she has no problems with this new, larger model. We were both thrilled at how easily the data migrated from the old phone to the new one. Hardly any interaction needed by the end-user. Apple really designed and implemented that well! That stood out to me as a truly "it just works" moment.

I would have waited and gotten an SE had I known they were coming out. I bit the bullet and bought an 11 in January... I also prefer the fingerprint to Face ID. And I like having a home button....

I'm starting to think about replacing my 7. It's everything I need, except that the battery is fading fast. I would get the SE just because I don't want a bigger phone. It just barely fits in a lot of the places I put it (don't do it newton). Fingerprint id is fine. Only thing is if they came out with a unified back button on the buttonless phones, that might tempt me.

That impressed me also - pretty painless and MUCH better than expected.
