iPhone SE review: Everything you need at lightning speed

 

Apple's iPhone SE (2020) isn't the best iPhone, but it's enough for most people. Our in-depth review examines performance, camera quality, design, and more.

Light, compact design ; Class-leading performance ; Loud, enjoyable audio ; Great camera ; iOS is excellent

Not a great display for $400 ; Battery life is just OK

Apple iPhone SE review (2020): Great phone, even better price

 

Building a $400 phone is an exercise in compromise, and the iPhone SE certainly has its share. Despite that, Apple's smallest, cheapest smartphone offers tremendous performance for the price. It won't make sense for everyone, but people who value power...

Incredible value ; Flagship-level performance ; Surprisingly good camera ; A13 chipset gives iOS room to grow

Dated design ; Battery life is only OK ; Camera doesn't have a Night mode

The new $399 iPhone SE looks like an iPhone 8 but works like Apple's top-of-the-line iPhone 11 Pro.

Apple iPhone SE (2020) Review

 

Affordable ; Fast performance ; Small, one-hand-friendly form factor

No camera night mode

The 2020 Apple iPhone SE is a petite powerhouse with no-compromise performance for hundreds of dollars less than other recent iPhones.

Apple iPhone SE review: everything you need

 

Do you really need a $1,000 phone?

Good battery life ; Software updates for years ; Camera good in light and great at video

Tired design with big bezels ; Small screen compared to every other phone ; Noisy low-light photos

The iPhone SE is not just a good deal. It’s also a really good smartphone.

The iPhone SE (2020) Review: A Reinvigorated Classic

 

Apple's latest iPhone SE is being released today, and it's certainly going to make a big impact on the market, for the simple reason that this is a $399 iPhone. We've had the new phone for a mere 24 hours, but we've been able to quickly put the device...

iPhone SE (2020) Review: $400 whiplash

 

Value may be subjective, but it's hard to argue that the new iPhone SE doesn't shake up what's reasonable to expect from a smartphone in 2020. Apple's most affordable phone is recycling refined to art, a blend of old and new with a barely-believable...

Aggressive pricing ; Latest processor and Apple's track-record of updating iOS ; Premium metal & glass construction

Single camera is solid but lacks features like Night Mode ; Display is small compared to other phones ; Budget for a better charger

Pre-order the iPhone SE 2 and get $50 off

 

The news of Apple releasing a new, cheaper phone this year has in no way been a secret. With so many rumors and speculations, people have pretty much already painted a picture of what this

Offering the guts of an iPhone 11 for nearly half the price, the new iPhone SE could not have arrived at a better time
