iPhone SE – The New Value King?

In the world where iPhones are launched with a price tag of thousands of pounds, it poses a serious impact on people who cannot afford them. Be it the iPhone XS Max or iPhone 11 Pro Max; everyone is in awe of these phones with a higher price tag. On the other hand, Apple cares about its audience, leading them to launch affordable options, and that’s what the iPhone SE series is all about.

These are the second-generation phones that have a fair share of cutting-edge features while being easy on the pocket. When the first iPhone from the SE series was released, it was cherished for its affordable price, performance, handy design, and more. The second iPhone SE has been designed and improved in every aspect. The new iPhone SE has a 4.7-inch Retina HD display. This display offers vibrancy and great colour accuracy as we have come to expect from Apple displays. As far as the screen size is concerned, it’s comparatively bigger than the first generation. One thing that iPhones are famous for is the camera, and with second-generation iPhone SE, the single-camera system is better than ever before.

The second-generation iPhone SE has a 12-megapixel camera with a wide-angle lens, depth control, portrait mode, and over six lighting effects. In addition, there is a touch ID and home button. Topping everything, there is an A13 bionic, which is the fastest chip ever used in a smartphone. The chip has been previously used in the iPhone 11 and the iPhone 11 Pro series of phones. The chip ensures the fast and effective performance of AR apps, gaming and silky-smooth performance in all your other apps. The A13 also has behind the scenes machine learning. The inclusion of the A13 processor in the new iPhone SE is what may prove to be a game-changer for Apple. The iPhone SE will serve you well for years, and pretty much guaranteed to perform better than any other device in this price range. The SE also benefits from the A13’s battery improvements.

The iPhone SE comes with wireless charging, however, the SE does not include a fast charger like the 11 Pro series. The SE phone will be available in multiple storage options; 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB. There are white, red, and black colour options are available. It is worth noting that this is the first time in history that Apple is launching a new product when its retail stores are closed in the majority of areas. While the employees are developing these devices through remote working, Apple has opened pre-order of the new iPhone since 17th April. All in all, it’s an effective choice for people looking for iOS devices without crossing the budgetary line.

The main features of the SE can be summarised below.

Design

The iPhone SE uses the same design as the previous iPhone 8. The iPhone 8 had a smaller screen when compared to Apple’s current flagships. It is believed that SE means ‘Special Edition’, however, I like to think of it as the ‘Small Edition’. People that like smaller phones will appreciate the drop in size, however, it is still larger than the original iPhone SE.

Processor

Despite the lower price, there is no compromise on performance as the iPhone is integrated with the A13 processor, which gives it a competitive edge. With higher performance and lower price chart, it’s outshining the Android phones in areas where Android phones are often in saturation.

Display

The size of the screen might be small (4.7 inches as compared to 6.1 inches in other advanced models), but there is no hitch on the resolution. The screen has a liquid crystal display technology that ensures colour vibrancy, optimal contrast, and higher resolution for the graphics.

I have previously worked for a major UK mobile network in a technical support role and I also represented Samsung at major product events such as IFA and MWC. I have decided to restart my blog during the COVID-19 lockdown and it is also a great opportunity to share my passion for technology with all of you.

  1. Completely agree with your statements Alan, I feel that Apple is now really starting to think about us customers who can’t afford a £1000 phone but would like to remain in the ecosystem.

    Keep these going, such useful information!
