    I currently have an iPhone SE and am thinking of getting the Mate 9.
    Any Apple users switch?

    Well its a LOT bigger, BUT more than any other phone the Mate 9 (and probably other Huawei models) will be a great fit for an Apple user. It has some things that remind you of Apple for example the swipe down to search. LOVED that feature on mine.

    Exactly- if I remember right, they've actually got a designer FROM Apple to help with the UI. A little bit of the best of both worlds thing.

    That being said, it's still android- so while some gestures and designs might look the same, it's no iOS.

    That's a huge jump in size. Have you seen it in person?

    Have not seen it, looked at YouTube videos.
    Some software I have would have to be repurchased.
    I'm still thinking on this vs iPhone 8

    You should go to best buy and check it out before committing

    If you wanted a larger screen than the SE, and you are willing to give Andriod a try, then you can't lose with the Mate 9 at $399.99.

    The mate 9 is a great choice for those wanting emui at a good price

    Mate 9 for $400 is a deal. I'd recommend the Honor 8

    My boyfriend has the iPhone SE and I have an Honor 8; so though it's not the exact same situation, I can understand your predicament somewhat!

    The SE is a really good phone, especially the compact size! The Mate 9 would be a bit of a jump as far as getting used to the larger screen size, etc; but EMUI is a great OS experience! It's really unlike any Android OS experience I've had thus far. There's even an EMUI Theme Store app that allows you to download iOS themes for your phone!

    All that being said, the Mate 9 is a fantastic phablet experience with a fantastic camera and good OS backing. Go for it! You can always keep your SE as a backup.

    That sounds like a great option! Best of both worlds

    Mate 9 is gigantic compared to the SE. I think the Honor 8 is a nicer choice to switch too

    I think Honor 8 is a better choice. Still a big screen upgrade compared to the SE and almost half the price of the Mate 9
