Apple iPhone 11 mobiles became very popular, mainly because of its low price with extreme features. Triple camera, waterproof technology, ultra-wide-angle mode, super-fast A13 Bionic processor, and more make this model unique.
Since the iPhone is one of the top models in the mobile market it doesn’t survive much in developing countries and underdeveloped countries as well just because of its big price. To overcome this Apple company shows some interest to minimize the cost of its products.
SE stands for
Apple announced its latest model ‘iPhone SE 2‘ two days ago. The first model of iPhone SE was released on March 31st, 2016 at the Town Hall auditorium on the Apple campus by Apple executive Greg Joswiak. The iPhone SE stands for the Special Edition of iPhone.
Why Apple show interest in this particular model only? Simple, it is just because of its popularity. The iPhone SE gives a great experience to its users with its performance and also the price is cheap to other models. So Apple company decided to upgrade this model.
The best features in ‘iPhone SE 2020’
Like any other mobile ‘SE 2020’ also has some good and some average features in it. Cheap in cost, small in size, and beast in performance. Let’s have a look at its features.
The iPhone SE 2 screen and display
Well, the first thing we look at the phone is its screen. The iPhone SE 2 has a 4.7 inch IPS LCD. The screen size is small with 65.23% to all the body of the phone. Multi-touch featured with 750*1344 pixels screen resolution. The resolution is not much great when compared with the AMOLED displays.
A13 Bionic processor
The latest A13 Bionic processor is used in iPhone SE 2020 edition. Itis the fastest iPhone processor Apple ever made. A13 Bionic Chip was launched on September 10, 2019. The chip has 6 cores with a 2.66 GHz CPU clock rate. That means it can able to do nearly 5 trillion operations in a second.
There is a conflict between A13 and Snapdragon 865. Almost both processors gave the same speed but in case of rendering and some other aspects, A13 beats snapdragon 865 and stood in the first place. So that in performance vise, iPhone SE 2020 gives ultimate user experience.
The iPhone SE 2020 default operating system is iOS-13 and now it can get an update with the new iOS-14. There are a lot more features in it.
The SE 2020 edition came with the three storage variants. It doesn’t have an expandable storage facility.
|S.No||RAM||ROM||PRICE IN INDIA|
|1.||3 Gb||64 Gb||INR. 42,000|
|2.||3 Gb||128 Gb||INR. 48,000|
|3.||3 Gb||256 Gb||INR. 58,000|
The outer body of the device is made with the mineral glass. The home button is present on this device and as usually the fingerprint sensor is on the Home button. But here is a disadvantage with the home button, it minimizes the screen. And also there is no facial identification unlock.
Though it is small in size, the company placed Apple logo in the middle to match all the latest iPhone mobiles.
It is IP67 water-resistant capable. That means the device can work under the water of 1-meter depth for about 30 minutes. What does IP67 stand for?
The camera is also one of the major perspectives we are seeing now. The iPhone SE 2020 has 12 MP rear camera and 7 MP at the front. Single rear camera with ISO capability. It has an image resolution of 4000*3000 pixels and video resolution 1920*1080 30f/sec. Impressible 4K video recording. Image stabilization and retina flash exist. And we can zoom objects up to five times.
Low battery capacity that is 1821 mAh. The type of battery is Lithium-ion. It supports quick charging so that the device gets fully charged in 60 minutes. We are not able to replace this battery.
The new iPhone SE 2020 has two sim ports. The 4G bands support both and also we can use 3G and 2G networks in this mobile. Connect Wifi with up to 5GHz signal frequency.
It supports with VoLTE 4G network. I faced a problem with my iPhone 5S. It works with LTE but not VoLTE 4G network. iPhone 5S is my favorite piece ever. So it became hard for me to shift to another mobile.
The Best features

- Latest Bluetooth version 5.0
- Update to iOS-14
- Low cost
- IP67 water-resistant capacity

These are the things that we don’t want in iPhone SE 2020.

Most of the people think that iPhone XR is a better choice instead of iPhone SE 2020. Why do they say so? Most of the features are similar in both devices. But here we can compare the best differences between these two models.

The special thing about iPhone SE 2 or iPhone SE 2020 is its low price that is $300. I wouldn’t say it is the least price ever but, at this price getting a brand new iPhone with the latest A13 processor that was used in $1000 iPhone is a big deal. The price ranges may vary in different countries.
My personal opinion is iPhone SE 2020 is the best one when compared to iPhone XR because of its performance and handy design. But it is my opinion, I always want my mobile small in size and beast in performance. So, I prefer iPhone SE 2020.
If you think like me then ‘SE 2’ is best for you. Otherwise, if you want a big screen and face lock, and more battery, etc, you will better go with iPhone XR.
