Apple iPhone SE (2020) review


Ah, the Apple iPhone SE. The Special Edition. Even if the Smaller Edition was more appropriate. And just like the first iPhone SE, its second generation...

Compact and lightweight, water-resistant.

Bezels, bezels, bezels.

The new iPhone SE is the cheapest iPhone right now, but also one of the cheapest flagship-like phones on the market if we are to compare bang for the buck. The only things you must do to like it is to embrace the bezels and buy a fast charger.

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

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

Apple’s new iPhone SE for 2020 has a 4.7-inch screen, a 12-megapixel camera, and it costs only $399. It’s one of the best values in smartphones today, especially since its A13 Bionic processor means it will get iOS software updates for several years....

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

iPhone SE (2020) review


The iPhone SE 2020 is an outstanding phone for under $400, delivering fast performance and very good cameras in a compact design.

The iPhone XR is a tempting alternative to the iPhone SE as it now costs just $499. For that money you bet a bigger display and bigger battery but a slower CPU and less advanced cameras. If you prefer a smaller phone, however, this handset will not...
