The iPhone SE has been on everyone’s lips since it was officially released. You may be wondering why Apple introduced a 4 inch iPhone, as smartphone screens are getting bigger.
In reality, the new iPhone SE is expected to attract a large number of users who want a small – screened smartphone offering comfortable one – handed operation. According to a survey conducted by PhoneDog, 240 million iPhone users are still using small iPhones.
The new iPhone SE may not come with a brand new design, as the handset’s design remains largely unchanged when compared to the last 4-inch iPhone – the iPhone 5S. However, the new device features many of exciting specs found on the iPhone 6S. If you are asking yourself if you should upgrade to iPhone SE, we can help you. Here is why you should buy an iPhone SE.
1. Same design and same display
The iPhone SE has received mostly negative review from users thanks to its same design found on the 2013 iPhone 5S. Nobody will be able to tell the difference between the iPhone SE and the iPhone 5S unless you get the Rose Gold version of the device. However, for some users, they won’t care about getting a new iPhone with a brand new design and new techs. Honestly, the iPhone 5S was only an iPhone 5 remake. According to tech experts, the iPhone SE will be one of the hottest items in emerging markets including India and Brazil.
According to tech analysts, the iPhone SE will satisfy fans of the iPhone 5 and 5s, as they can use various accessories they have gathered for years when upgrading to the new iPhone SE.
The new iPhone SE features a 4 inch display with a resolution of 640 x 1136 pixels, just like the iPhone 5S. One thing that is missing from the new device is 3D Touch found on the iPhone 6S. However, with a 399 USD price tag, it seems plausible that the iPhone SE did not come with 3D Touch.
2. A powerful 4 inch iPhone
The iPhone SE is considered to be the most powerful 4 inch iPhone in Apple’s history. The new device features Apple’s A9 SoC, the same chip that powers the current iPhone 6S and 6S Plus. In other words, the new chip makes the iPhone SE twice as powerful as the iPhone 5s in the CPU department, and three times faster than in graphics performance. According to Apple, the new chip coupled with the M9 motion co-processor will give users a faster performance and better battery life.
You may be wondering how much RAM the iPhone SE is equipped with, as Apple have never mentioned the RAM in their iOS devices. According to tech experts, the iPhone SE has 2GB of memory. However, we are waiting for Apple’s official announcement to make a final call on that one.
3. The new camera
The iPhone SE features the 12 MP iSight camera on the iPhone 6s. Besides, the camera offers 4K recording at 30 FPS, 1080p at up to 60 FPS. However, the front – facing is still 1.2 MP.
According to camera tests, the iPhone SE’s camera offers better selfies and images in low – light condition compared to the iPhone 5 and 5S.
4. Apple Pay and Battery Life
One of the most exciting features on the iPhone SE is Apple Pay. The new mobile payment service will make shopping much more easier.
The battery life could be a selling point of the iPhone SE. According to Apple, the iPhone SE will offer 2-3 hours longer compared to the iPhone 6S and 5S.
The iPhone SE will be a perfect choice for users who want a smaller iPhone with high – end techs. With the SE, you will get a more powerful CPU, a more powerful GPU, a better iSight camera, access to Apple Pay, and the choice to go Rose Gold.
