The face id will take some getting used to and the no home button. I like the slightly bigger screen. But still fits in my pocket. Had to order another case. The one I picked was hard plastic and it wouldn't press the button through it. Another UPS delivery for Thursday.

Of course the end result of this is that I need to buy new phones for my wife and son. Will likely get the SE.

Doing an iOS update now. I should update my signature.

I was wearing gloves at the store till I scored some hand sanitizer. I can't use my fingerprint to unlock with gloves anyway.
I've been trying to go old-school with paper lists lately. The less there is to touch and put back in your pocket, the better.

I am not a fan of the new layout of the status bar at the top of the iPhone 11.

And I did buy 2 SE 2nd gen for my wife and son.

I kinda had that rush when I got it. I didn't want anyone to know I had it, and I wanted to head straight home and use it.

I’m back in the iPhone family. Bought an SE with the most memory you can get.

I didn’t see the point in paying > 1K for the newest phone when the cheapest model can do everything I need.

I also like AppleCare as lot better than anything anyone else has to offer.

The SE is a good phone. My wife and son got them. I almost did but decided to splurge.

Holy crap, you're alive! Good to hear from you. If you have the time, a few of us are listing all our favorite songs in the music thread. Check it out.

Thanks. I hadn’t logged onto DRC since I switched phones. I kept meaning to, but would forget or get distracted (squirrel).

I’ll check out the favorite songs threads.

The next big thing on the iPhone 12 would be 5G, but it’s not widely available in my area. I did mess around with the night mode on the new 11 pro and it is super cool. Maybe when I get it I’ll post pictures.
I just checked the specs. Aside from 5G and A14 chip, 12 is almost the same as the 11. I am happy with my 11.

I thought about the 12 but It doesn't have anything that would make me want to switch so soon after getting the 11 pro max last year. Next Mac purchase will likely be a new MacBook Pro with the new chip. November its been speculated on those.

After getting my Galaxy A70 fixed a few months ago I'm very happy with it. I plan to keep it for at least another year, maybe longer.
