    iPhone SE is the most compact smartphone in the iPhone lineup after iPhone XR. It sports a 4.7-inch LCD IPS panel boasting a screen resolution of 1334×750 pixels at 326 PPI. It sports a 7MP FaceTime HD front camera with 1080p video recording at 30fps which is an underpowered compared to 7MP TrueDepth camera with 1080p HD at 60fps.

    iPhone SE is currently a lucrative choice if someone is looking for a new but cheaper iPhone although the reduced power could be discouraging for iPhone fanatics.

    iPhone SE 2020 review

    Some of the major advantages of owning an iPhone SE comes with its compact size, less weight, easy handling, excellent build quality, a great App Store to jump in, portability and the presence of the A13 Bionic processor ensuring great performance. It gives you a smooth gaming experience on a decent display with Apple’s True Tone feature that adjusts the colour temperature. It has an outdated design, has a lower battery capacity, no 3.5mm audio socket, no support for 5G and comes with a comparatively smaller screen area . The single rear camera is also not something most buyers would prefer and you would find yourself disappointed since it is High on quality but low on flexibility. But if we were to peek into the major problem accompanying this handset, it would be Apple’s failure to create a smartphone that fits within the budget of an average Indian. This failure directly reflects on the iPhone SE.
