The curious thing about the new iPhone SE 2020 is that it reminds me just how good the original iPhone 8, on which it’s based, was in the first place. Except that the iPhone 8, from 2017, so two and a half years ago, launched at £700, in the UK at least. Whereas the new SE, in Product Red livery here, starts at £420, a truly massive price drop, despite having major internals revamp with A13 chipset and an extra GB of RAM.

iPhone SE 2020: The Complete Buyer's and User Guide
The new entry-level iPhone, iPhone SE (2nd generation), not surprisingly misses out on some features that are available on the high-end iPhones. But it has a feature that is not available on iPhone X or later including iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, or iPhone 11 Pro Max. It is the ability to check the battery percentage right in the status bar.
While you won’t require it straight away, you should know the process to force restart your shiny new iPhone SE since it might come in handy if the phone ever freezes or hangs, starts behaving strangely, stops responding or you can’t turn it off and on.
The 2020 iPhone SE offers plenty of value for its money. It has decent battery life, offers great performance, and has a relatively impressive 12MP shooter at the rear despite using the same sensor as the iPhone 8. However, one major omission in the iPhone SE’s feature list is that it lacks a dedicated Night mode in the camera app. This means that its low-light imaging performance is going to be abysmal. Thankfully, using a third-party app, you can easily get night mode on the iPhone SE and take better photos in dark environments.
The iPhone SE (2nd Generation) was launched with a pretty low price tag of $399, but it still comes with Apple’s high standard for build quality. It has an aluminum unibody, scratch-resistant glass on both sides of the phone, and has an IP67 certification for dust and water resistance. But how strong the new iPhone SE really is? Let’s find out.
2020 iPhone SE is the First iPhone to Use Entirely Software-Based Portrait Mode, Better Than iPhone XR
At $399, the newly-launched iPhone SE is priced cheaper than the two-year-old iPhone XR, but it still features a faster processor. Although its camera hardware specs appear similar to that of the iPhone XR, the 2020 iPhone SE captures comparatively better images, especially portraits, and here’s its secret sauce.
The all-new iPhone SE is grabbing headlines for all the right reasons. The $399 iPhone offers great value for money and is powered by A13 Bionic. The new iPhone SE brings back TouchID and chunky bezels. YouTube channel Mrwhosetheboss has uploaded a new video in which iPhone SE battery life is compared against iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, OnePlus 8, and Galaxy S20.
The second-generation iPhone SE was unveiled earlier this month, and at $399, a lot of people are finding it attractive. It has the latest processor, the latest version of iOS, a handy design, decent battery life, wireless charging, and IP67 rating. The only seemingly cut-down part of the phone appears to be its camera, and that’s the aspect every smartphone user cares about. So, how does the 2020 iPhone SE holds up against the iPhone XR and the iPhone 11?
The iPhone SE 2020 was unveiled earlier this month, and the smartphone is now available for sale. The phone looks a lot like the iPhone 8, and it meant to be a replacement for those who are still using Apple’s older smartphones like the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 7. Does the new iPhone offer enough speed improvements over the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 7? This video tries to show the difference.
When Apple announced the 2020 iPhone SE earlier this week, it did not provide much about its 12MP rear camera sensor. Many believed that it was a mashup of the iPhone XR’s camera sensor and the iPhone 8 lens. A teardown of the 2020 iPhone SE and a close inspection from the folks over at iFixit reveals a different story altogether though.
