In 2020, Apple released the iPhone SE, one of the most exciting smartphones of the past five years. The phone is jam-packed with spectacular features that Apple fans have been waiting for years.At ASK Computers, we find it difficult to overlook one of the most popular smartphones on the market. So, in this iPhone SE 2020 review, we aim to discover how this phone stacks up against previous Apple smartphones.
iPhone SE 2020 in a Nutshell
iPhone SE 2020 comes with an improved processor and a wider, 4.7 inches display than its predecessors. The phone enables you to take crystal-clear photos, store more files, and have apps running faster than most of the previous iPhone models.
Besides a compact size and a sturdy casing, the iPhone SE 2020 features a Retina HD display and has a resolution of 1,334×750 pixels. This way, you can count on it to provide you with the best possible experience when streaming movies online or playing mobile games.
However, the iPhone SE 2020 feature that every Apple fan is talking about is the price. The SE 2020 comes at a ridiculously low price for an iPhone, and especially for one that has a remarkable set of smart features.
The SE 2020 is available for as low as $399 (£419, AU$749). It is almost half the price of the iPhone 11, which usually costs between $700 and $1,000. Mind you, the lowest price for the iPhone SE 2020 is for the version delivering the smallest storage space of 64 GB. If you wish to upgrade to 256 GB, prepare to pay as much as $999.
iPhone SE 2020 Features
The latest generation of iPhone devices comes with a set of features that Apple fans have learned to cherish over the years.
Firstly, the iPhone SE 2020 comes with a physical home button that is easy to find on the slick casing of the compact-sized phone.
Next, the display size is 4.7 inches, which is considerably larger than the original iPhone SE’s 4-inch screen.
The latest iPhone SE only has one camera on the phone’s rear. However, the camera´s performance is more than satisfying. It is a 12-megapixel camera that produces crystal-clear images just as the one on the front, which is a 7-megapixel camera.
The SE 2020 follows in the steps of previous Apple smartphones and leaves out the headphone jack. This way, users can invest in the high-performance Apple Air Pods.
The iPhone SE 2020 has an Apple A13 Bionic processor that accelerates the performance of the iOS 13 operating system. This way, you get the same processing experience as the iPhone 11, but at a smaller cost.
