Apple iPhone SE
Apple iPhone SE
There’s not many who would argue the power of Apple when discussing industry leaders in smartphone technology. The tech giants have been at the forefront of mobile phone manufacturing for over ten years now, earning them a loyal following of fans across the world.
Apple is often known for being the first smartphone brand to release the larger ‘phablet’ style phones thanks to the evolution of the iPhone Plus handsets, and for a long time now people have desired larger handsets with an ‘all screen’ design. However, there are still a few of us out there who want a great quality, high-end smartphone with a more practical, compact size.
Thankfully for those of you who identify with this feeling, there’s the highly praised Apple iPhone SE.
Apple iPhone SE Build & Design
Great things really do come in small packages, and the iPhone SE is the perfect example of that. While it looks remarkably like the iPhone 5S, so much so that upon its release many customers were confused about exactly what was so special about this new iPhone, it holds a lot more power than the previous 4-inch model.
Some may think that by sticking to an older design Apple is being a little lazy, but we feel that it is astonishing that this little phone can contain so much power. On top of that, the iPhone SE is still an extremely good looking and will be a winner with fans of the more traditional iPhone design. It comes in four different colourways to suit any individual, with a bead-blasted aluminium finish which makes for a sleek phone that stays true to iPhone’s beloved design.
Aside from its looks, the iPhone SE features a compact build that fits comfortably in one hand for an extremely pleasant user experience.
With the iPhone SE, you don’t need to worry about being too precious with your smartphone; it feels extremely robust while retaining a compact build that won’t weigh you down. With that being said, we’d always recommend investing in a screen protector and good quality case so that you won’t find yourself having to fork out for any repairs.
Apple iPhone SE Screen Quality
While the resolution of the SE is a step backwards from that found on the 6S and 6S Plus, to a 640x1136 resolution, it still keeps the Retina display that iPhone fans will expect, delivering a very similar experience when it comes to detail.
The 4-inch display also features LCD multi-touch IPS technology and is reinforced with a fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating for added durability.
The A9 chip (more on that later) means that users are met with console-level graphics to deliver a top class gaming experience when in use, so while the screen may not be the biggest if gaming is your thing you won’t be let down.
Apple iPhone SE Sound Quality
The sound quality on the iPhone SE is decent, but we have to admit that the iPhone 6S is better, so if you’re a keen music fan who finds themselves really looking out for a good audio experience, we’d recommend going for one of the larger handsets.
With that being said, the iPhone SE gives a sound quality that is crisp, rich and well timed, and if all that sounds like what you’re looking for, then we wouldn’t let this be a factor that puts you off purchasing the iPhone SE.
Apple iPhone SE Features
Like many of the newer Apple handsets, the iPhone SE comes with an impressive 12MP camera, which is amazing when you consider the size and price of this handset.
The SE is capable of taking photographs that are comparable not only to the iPhone 6S but also to many high-end handsets released around the same time, particularly 4-inch handsets.
There’s also the added bonus of Live Photos which come to life when you touch the screen and is a really innovative way to relive the moment in which the photo was captured.
There’s good news for all those self-confessed selfie addicts out there; selfies are also of a great quality with a front-facing HD camera with Retina Flash, delivering photos that triple in brightness when compared to older models.
True-Tone technology allows users to experience true-to-life colours and natural looking skin tones that react according to different lighting conditions, and 4K video capability is another unexpected bonus.
Apple iPhone SE Performance
Apple claims that the iPhone SE is the most powerful 4-inch phone ever created, and when you consider that it has all the power of the larger 6S and 6S Plus models, we can’t argue.
This great little phone runs on Apple’s very own A9 chip, meaning that the compact little body delivers an exceptional level of smartphone power, resulting in an incredibly fast and responsive smartphone experience that won’t have you waiting for your phone to catch up.
The SE comes with 16, 32, 64 or 128GB of internal memory, so you can choose your handset and make sure that you have plenty of storage space for all of your favourite apps, photos and files.
One significant upgrade from the 6S models is the improved battery life, largely thanks to the smaller screen, and users will find that the SE holds power for much longer than the 6S models.
Fonehouse iPhone SE Opinion
Even though there are newer iPhone handsets currently on the market, the iPhone SE remains a fantastic choice, especially if you’re looking for a smaller, more affordable option.
The display remains similar to the iPhone 5S but we still really like it, and the colour options are diverse and give a lot of variety for different individuals.
The screen quality takes a step back from the 6S range, but it is still of an exceptionally high standard for a phone of this size and price.
The audio experience isn’t necessarily the best on the market, but don’t let it put you off as its still decent and many people won’t notice the downgrade from the 6S.
The A9 chip does a fantastic job of providing this little handset with a tonne of power, and users will be grateful for such a responsive smartphone experience in a 4-inch handset.
