In a nutshell: Buy the iPhone SE and you’ll be able to enjoy the best ever single-lens camera on an iPhone as well as Apple’s most powerful ever mobile phone chip. In fact, it's the same chip that’s in the flagship iPhone 11 Pro. You also get Apple’s feature-packed, user-friendly iOS 13, with even more intuitive things to entertain you and help you through your day.
iPhone SE has a 12MP Wide camera with 5x digital zoom and a 7MP FaceTime and selfie camera. The standout feature is Portrait mode, where with a simple slider, you can blur the background to differing degrees for an arty result.
The camera app lets you adjust the light intensity with six portrait lighting effects, which will give your photos the same professional look as those shot in a photography studio. The Smart HDR technology recognises faces and finesses shadows, highlights, and contours, to further perfect your photos.
Switching between taking photos and videos in the moment has always been clunky. Until now. QuickTake solves this problem, and you can simply hold the shutter button to start recording video. Your video options include shooting at 4K quality, slo-mo recording at 120fps or 240fps, and filming with stereo sound. Cinematic video stabilisation counters handshake and every video view can be unique with the playback zoom.
The 2020 iPhone SE has a 4.7-inch Retina HD display with an HD+ resolution of 750 x 1334 pixels. The true tone display shows natural colours on a bright screen that also helps with a handy zoom tool.
iPhone SE boasts a glass body with a colour-matched aluminium band, and a Touch ID home button, sitting below the screen. The phone not only looks good, but it is practical as well, with water resistance to 1 metre for 30 minutes.
Amazingly, iPhone SE has the same incredibly powerful chip that’s used in the iPhone 11 Pro. This chip has machine learning accelerators for speed and efficiency. It also opens up the world of AR apps, allowing you to interact with the world in new ways, such as mapping constellations over stars or measuring objects.
iOS 13 – the operating system that powers iPhone SE – includes a new photos app, Siri shortcuts, and dark mode, with access to more than 2 million apps in the App Store. The feature that is set to be one of the most popular allows you to pair two sets of AirPods or Beats headphones so you can share your audio with another person.
With a full charge, you can watch video for up to 13 hours or listen to music for up to 40 hours. The iPhone SE is fast-charge and wireless charge capable. You will of course need to buy a fast charger separately to take advantage of the technology capabilities, likewise if you want to take advantage of the wireless charging feature.
iPhone SE breaks down the price barrier and lets you get a powerful, feature-packed iPhone at an even better price. The extra value-for-money here makes iPhone SE a desirable proposition.
