iPhone SE takes an incredibly popular design and refines it even further. Crafted from bead-blasted aluminum for a satin-like finish, this light and compact phone is designed to fit comfortably in your hand. A brilliant 4‑inch1Retina display makes everything look vibrant and sharp. And matte-chamfered edges and a color-matched stainless steel logo finish the look. With a 12‑megapixel iSight camera, you can be sure to capture sharp, detailed stills like the ones shot on iPhone 6s. That includes shooting — and even editing — brilliant 4K video, which is up to four times the resolution of 1080p HD video.
Despite the iPhone SE's smaller 4in screen size, it boasts the same 326ppi pixel density as the more expensive iPhone 6S.
Dimension and design
Both phones have been crafted out of aluminium, yet the iPhone SE recalls the design aesthetic last seen in the iPhone 5 and 5S range. So while it may ape the specifications of the iPhone 6S, it's not immediately obvious from looking at it.
Both handsets include the very same A9 chipset and RAM. This is something of a boon for the iPhone SE as it means it has enough power under the hood to compete with top-tier phones.
To its credit, the smartphone SE utilises Apple's Touch ID technology that provides that added security benefit. But the firm has insisted on the first generation sensor, as opposed to the newer, faster second-generation found on the likes of the iPhone 6S.
iPhone SE: Rear 12MP camera, f/2.2, phase detection autofocus, dual-LED (dual tone) flash, 1.22 µm pixel size, simultaneous 4K video and 8MP image recording
In real world tests the iPhone 6S averages around 12 hours-worth of mixed usage, and at worst can last you through a day. The iPhone SE is said to match this 12-hour running time.
The iPhone SE is limited by its storage capacity. If you're after the larger 128GB model (as found on the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus) you're fast out of luck.
