Reviews


Highlights


1. A13 Bionic chip
2. 4K video recording
3. Sleek and handy





Design


Hey folks, let's look into design first. The iPhone SE 2020 is built similar to the iPhone 8 model externally with some minor changes. The camera, primary mic, and flashlight are placed on a row fashion at the top left corner of the back. At the bottom, you have two speakers and a type C charger port at the center.



This mobile has dual SIM support where you can insert a normal SIM in a SIM tray, and you can add e-SIM too. At the right, the power ON/OFF button is placed, and at the left, a slider button along with volume keys are positioned perfectly. This mobile has a touch ID fingerprint sensor like 8.



Sadly, you don't have a face ID unlock support with this mobile. This mobile has an IP 67 rating to get protected from water and dust. Overall, the design is so solid and still fresh to look in 2020.




Display


The 4.7-inch retina HD+ display is so intense and emits vibrant and sharp colors. The big bezels at the display look so outdated from the 2020 perspective. But if you need a handy latest mobile from this brand, the SE 2020 is one of the choices.



This mobile has no 3D touch feature unlike iPhone 8. Overall the display quality is so great and so exceptional like other Apple models of this phone.




Performance


iPhone SE 2020 runs on a new A13 Bionic chip like the 11 series. You can read the review of the iPhone 11 series from our site. The SE 2020 is built with the iOS 13 operating system, which looks so stylish and classy to use.



With the presence of a powerful processor chip, you can play intense games with high-resolution graphics. But you can't play heavy games for more than 2 hrs due to 1821 mAh battery capacity, and that is a negative note for the mobile.



Due to the A31 Bionic chip, we can expect iOS updates for the next 4 years. Overall, the performance is so good alike other models.




Camera


The iPhone SE 2020 has a 12MP with an f1.8 single camera at the back. It captures perfects shots in which the image quality is clear and crisp. In addition to this, it has a 5X digital zoom feature and a Smart HDR feature. It works better, but not so excellent. The camera quality is good, but not exceptional.



The 7MP selfie camera captures nice shots with poor dynamic range in images. The biggest negative note is that the rear camera of this mobile does not have a dedicated night mode. So, the output shots in low light mode are below average.



Due to the presence of A13, camera processing is so good. A small negative note with portraits is, the portrait mode is calculated through software and captures only human subjects, and we cannot capture pet portraits.



The unique feature of iPhone SE is 4K video recording @60 fps with super steady stabilization. The slow-motion videos can be recorded with 1080p @120fps and @240fps. The dynamic range is selfie videos is average and not excellent.




Battery


Apple does not mention about its battery capacity in its official site. But the fact is iPhone SE has only 1821 mAh battery. This is a huge disappointment for Apple fans and others. The battery has an 18w fast charging support but provides only 5w charger with the box.



This might put heavy gamers in a bit of disappointment. The battery capacity is lesser than the iPhone 11. You can read the review of the iPhone 11 from our site.




Price


For 64GB base variant, the iPhone SE price is starting from Rs. 42,500/- in India. The next 128GB variant is sold at Rs. 47500/-, and the final variant 256GB is sold at Rs.58,300/-. Apple does not mention about the RAM size.



But the fact is, it has 3GB RAM only. We feel the price of this phone in India is a bit higher in comparing its features. Apple has done many compromises in the phone’s features, which do not match the price.




Pros

  • 4K video recording

  • Handly mobile

  • A13 Bionic chip

  • iOS 13

Cons


  • Cameras could be improved

  • Low battery capacity

  • Big bezels on the display

  • Overpriced

Verdict

iPhone SE 2020 can be bought just for Apple's brand. If you want a brand new iPhone at the basic price with limited features, you can go for this.
