Apple iPhone SE (2022) review: Small in size, big in value


The iPhone SE (2022) is the smallest and cheapest new iPhone, with some serious power inside too. It has been out for a while, is it still worth buying?

Compact and light Very powerful Touch ID works really well Wireless charging IP67 water resistance

Poor battery life 60Hz screen 64GB won't be enough

“The Apple iPhone SE (2022)'s compact design and high performance processor impresses, as does the software and its support, but the phone is let down by its battery life and storage capacity.”

Apple iPhone SE (2022) review


The Special Edition iPhone, also known as the cheapest iPhone, or the retro one, has been refreshed, and is now available for purchase. It's a very minor...

Solid glass build, IP67-rated, very compact body

Very few upgrades over the iPhone SE (2020), but costs more

So this really is a phone for two groups of people. The first one wants the cheapest entry into the iOS ecosystem. The second are those looking for a powerful compact phone with the same requirement of spending as little as possible. If you fall in...

iPhone SE review (2022): A small throwback of a phone | Engadget


If you want a simple iPhone that runs like new, and don't mind the dated design and single rear camera, the iPhone SE might fit the bill..

Familiar home button and TouchID

Base model’s 64GB of storage is measly

As someone who’s grown accustomed to gesture-based navigation, I needed to reacquaint myself with using a home key. It doesn’t physically depress; like on the previous iPhone SE this is a touch sensor that vibrates in response when you push it. That...

Apple iPhone SE (2022) Review


Most affordable new iPhone ; Speedy performance ; Supports T-Mobile and Verizon mid-band 5G ; Longer battery life than the previous model

Outdated body design ; No Night mode in camera ; Lacks support for AT&T's 3.45GHz mid-band 5G ; Shortest battery life of any current iPhone model

While it isn't quite the revelation its predecessor was, Apple's 2022 iPhone SE is a solid small phone that should remain relevant for years to come.

Apple’s new iPhone SE is a modern phone stuck in yesterday’s design


Looking a little vintage — and not in a good way.

Great day-to-day performance ; Excellent build quality with IP67 water resistance ; Software updates for many, many years ; Well-priced

Tiny, cramped 4.7-inch display ; Camera lacks night mode ; Base model only includes 64GB of storage

The iPhone SE (2022) includes Apple’s latest A15 processor, 5G connectivity, and improved battery life over the previous SE model. But its tired design and cramped 4.7-inch display feel like they’re stuck in the past.

iPhone SE 2022 review: A bite-sized beast with BPE (big phone energy), but is it just bravado?


The iPhone SE 2022 has a lot of muscle, but does it have stamina?

Performance beast ; Portable, compact form factor ; Satisfying Touch ID ; Decent price

Obsolete design ; No Night mode ; Middling battery life

The iPhone SE 2022, equipped with the A15 Bionic chip, has plenty of muscle and brawn, but we question its stamina due to its middling battery life.

Apple iPhone SE (2022) Review: Paying For The Future - SlashGear


At a time when four-figure smartphones aren't the exception but the norm, the iPhone SE feels like a strategy shift. A cheaper phone actually can be good.

The cheapest new iPhone in 2022 ; A15 Bionic chipset for future-proofing ; Unexpectedly capable camera ; Touch ID is still convenient

Display definitely feels small ; Battery life is only sufficient

iPhone SE 3 Review: déjà vu


The iPhone SE (2022) edition brings the powerful A15 chip from flagship phones into budget territory, it also now has 5G connectivity and even most of the camera tricks. Can this phone be a sleeper hit?...

Affordable price ; Light, thin and compact ; iPhone with a button classic vibe ; 5G connectivity with C-band support ; Super fast processor ; Camera is great for day shots, video

Feels dated ; LCD screen instead of AMOLED ; Screen feels too small for a modern phone ; Battery life is improved, but still below average ; Camera lacks night mode, has no ultra-wide lens ; Only 64GB base storage

We pit the budget Apple compacts - the iPhone SE (2022) and the iPhone 12 mini - to gauge whether the price difference is worth it.
