Apple has one goal in building the iPhone SE (2020): to launch a new iPhone that costs less than ever. And it does well in that regard. iPhone SE (2020) price is only $399 for people living in the US. Meanwhile, iPhone SE (2020) price in India starts at Rs 42,500 for the 64GB model.

The iPhone SE (2020) has the exact same design and display as the 2017 iPhone 8.

For those who have already use an iPhone, the design is similar. Considering more recent models’ all-screen designs, the phone is considered to be the “smaller” iPhone. It is water-resistant. However, because of the older design, there are some drawbacks. It doesn’t have a headphone jack. And due to the slightly dated display technology, you will have some trouble watching videos in bright light.

Design and display

The iPhone SE (2020) has the exact same design and display as the 2017 iPhone 8. With this and screen hardware, Apple was able to keep the cost of the new iPhone as low as possible.

Returning to the design of the iPhone 8 means the iPhone SE (2020) is more lightweight than the recent models.

One thing that many people wish that Apple should have kept is the 3.5mm headphone jack. Comes with the box is Apple EarPods, using the phone’s Lightning connector. For those who still have their wired headphones, they will need to buy an adapter for $9.

The display of the phone might not be the best, but it’s fine, considering the target market for this phone. For those who need a new phone but don’t want to pay too much, they sure really don’t care much about a fancy OLED display.

The resolution might not be top-end but it isn’t that obvious. The only thing that should have been improved is the display’s brightness.

A13 Bionic Chipset

For the iPhone SE (2020), the big change is the upgraded engine, compared to the iPhone 8. Although the design is identical, Apple has equipped the iPhone SE with an improved chipset.

That extra power is meant to let the new iPhone SE compete with the iPhone 11 range regarding the speed when switching between apps, editing videos, and snaps as well as the improved camera performance.

Apple, while keeping cost down, have implemented some performance improvements. The performance of the iPhone SE (2020) can match the iPhone 11 Pro Max which is Apple’s most powerful phone on the market.

When comparing the iPhone SE (2020) with the older iPhone 8 Plus, the former does so much better in compressing and exporting a video down to a smaller size.

The iPhone (2020) comes with a 3GB Ram instead of the 4GB that the iPhone 11 is using, to minimize costs, of course.

Camera

This should be the make-or-break feature of the phone. It performs really well in day-to-day use. Regarding general snapping, it can stand against the iPhone 11 Pro Max. The camera of the iPhone SE (2020) uses the same set of lenses as well as megapixel count as the 2017 iPhone 8. It has a 12MP camera, a lens with six elements, and a sapphire glass cover.

To sum up, overall “better” photos, no matter they were taken in brighter or darker environments.

Battery

Compared to the iPhone 11, you shouldn’t expect the iPhone SE (2020) to have the longest endurance. For example, according to Apple, the iPhone SE can deliver 13 hours of video playback while the iPhone 11 delivers 17 hours.

With continuous web surfing using 4G LTE, the new iPhone last around 9 hours. Since it has a smaller battery, it has less staying power.

If you want to charge the phone to 50% in just 30 minutes, you will need to purchase Apple’s 19W charger.
