Iphone se (2020) 128 gb

What vì chưng you look for in a new iPhone? The top of the các mục likely includes battery life và camera quality. There are a bunch of other specs và features you’d probably put down lower on the list: speed, screen quality, size, extra cameras, & so on.

But the most important thing for that các mục comes not from the specs, but from the fact that you’re looking for an iPhone — something with access khổng lồ iMessage, FaceTime, a huge library of great apps, reliable software updates, và more. You could cross-shop with android phones, but the switching cost is getting higher every year.

That’s why I’m glad táo apple has resurrected an old idea và released another iPhone SE. It starts at $399 for a model with 64GB of storage. For people who want an iPhone, it makes buying a brand-new phone for less than $700 a whole lot easier. Before this week, you’d be choosing between refurbs or switching over to lớn Android.

Pointing out that the iPhone SE is an iPhone is redundant, but it’s important for people who don’t want to switch. It’s also a guarantee of a base cấp độ of quality. That makes this review simple: how much are you giving up when you’re only paying $399?

Less than you might guess.

I get all of that, but I also get that this design looks tired in 2020. There are many comparably priced android phones that have managed lớn reduce their bezels. That’s not just an aesthetic consideration, either. Smaller bezels mean you can fit a bigger screen in a smaller phone body.

The bezels are a bother, but the build quality is not. Apple’s long history with this phone kiến thiết means that it’s rock-solid. There’s no flex, no gross seams, no gaps. The 4.7-inch LCD display is as good as ever, with True Tone lớn help color-match your surroundings.

It’s an iPhone, and there’s a comforting sense of familiarity lớn it.

For those of you hanging on khổng lồ the original iPhone SE in the hopes that hãng apple would make another small phone: I acknowledge you & your sadness. This is simply the way phones are these days. I will say it’s a very common experience for people lớn resist bigger screens and then love them when they finally give in, but that may not be yours. If it helps (it won’t), there aren’t any good tiny game android phones right now either.

As with the iPhone 7 và 8, the home button isn’t a physical button, but simply a spot on the bottom that gives you a tactile tapback when you press it. I’m happy to lớn say that táo apple hasn’t skimped on the haptics on this phone: they feel great.

It’s only IP67 water resistant, so it’s okay lớn get wet, but don’t leave it in water for too long. It’s glass on the back, too, khổng lồ enable wireless charging. Both are relative rarities at this price point.

The last hardware thing I’ll cảnh báo is there is no tai nghe jack. It’s only worth pointing out because most inexpensive apk phones still do offer a tai nghe jack. Hãng apple includes Lightning EarPods in the box but not an adapter. It also has Apple’s standard dinky 5W charger, so while the iPhone SE supports fast-charging, the included charger doesn’t.

Inside that familiar shell, there are two major upgrades to lớn the iPhone SE: the processor and the camera. Let’s talk processor first.

It has the A13 Bionic, which is impressive because it’s the same processor as the iPhone 11 Pro. There is no faster processor in a smartphone for any price. So yes, the iPhone SE is fast, but that’s not why the processor matters.

The processor is important because it ensures that the iPhone SE will get OS updates for many years to come. I still have the original iPhone SE, released in March 2016, and Apple supported it with the latest game ios update last year. Four years later, & that iPhone has the most up-to-date software.


The battery lasts a day, but not much more

Most game android phones — from the cheapest to the most expensive — vị trí cao nhất out at two years of updates. Even the best, Google’s px line, are only guaranteed updates for three years. As I said last week, it’s not just about the $399 cost; it’s about how often you have khổng lồ spend it. No other phone at this price will last as long as the iPhone SE will in terms of software support.

Speaking of longevity, battery life on the iPhone SE is all right but not stellar. I’m getting through a full day, averaging between four và five hours of screen-on time. I was hoping the A13 Bionic processor would unlock the longer battery life we got with the iPhone 11, but it seems that was mostly about battery size, và the SE has the same kích thước battery as the iPhone 8.

It’s enough for today, but in a few years, you may be turning khổng lồ a battery case on the regular or seeking out a repair shop to replace your battery.

The iPhone SE has just one 12-megapixel camera on the back & a 7-megapixel selfie camera on the front. There are two ways of looking at these cameras, both valid.

The first is, for a $399 phone, the cameras are absolutely great, and any complaints or gripes should be promptly dismissed given that price. The second is that they’re quite good but have some baffling shortcomings that táo apple could have overcome, even at this price point.
