iPhone SE 2020: Price, Release Date and Specifications in 2020

iPhone SE is back four years later. Although it came in a different form, it was presented with a design used by Apple as before. If you recall, the iPhone SE we saw in 2016 used the case and screen we had previously seen on iPhone 5 and 5s models. When we come to 2020, we see that Apple uses the design, screen, and materials it used in the iPhone 8 model, which it previously released in 2017. As before, old design, screen, and material are combined with a new processor and camera components. As a result, a phone that we will consider to be up to date in terms of 2020 emerges. In this article, we will provide you with a quick review regarding iPhone SE 2020.

 Design and Display.

Remember, when Apple released the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus models in 2014, this was considered a big step forward. Until then, iPhones, with their 4-inch screen bodies, started to remain smaller than their competitors on the Android side. Later, the first version of the iPhone SE came with a 4-inch iPhone 5 body and this phone was described as a model with both affordable and up-to-date hardware components for those who wanted a "compact" smartphone.

User habits have changed in the meantime. Even phones with a screen size of more than 6 inches do not look too big anymore. For this reason, the iPhone body with a 4.7-inch screen, which is once described as a big step forward, is described as "compact". Indeed, when we compare Apple's other phones currently on sale with the iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 and iPhone XR, the iPhone SE 2020 remains smaller, fits more comfortably in the palm, and is used.

The 2020 model iPhone SE comes with a design we are used to. The design and material selection is in line with the iPhone 8, but we saw this design on iPhones released between 2014 and 2017. The 4.7-inch screen has a 16: 9 aspect ratio. There are considerably large frame areas at the top and bottom of the screen. Below the screen is the Home button with the Touch ID fingerprint reader integrated. Do not look at what we call a key, it is actually a touch area and it gives the feeling of pressing a key with vibration. Apple used this system for the first time with the iPhone 7 series. At the top of the screen is the FaceTime camera and environmental light sensor.

On the bottom edge is the Lightning port, speaker, and microphone. There are volume keys and mute switch on the left edge. On the right side is the power button. We also see the nano-SIM card slot here. A single-camera on the back is placed in the upper left corner. Next to it is a microphone and LED flash. Unlike the iPhone 8, the Apple logo on the back is slightly larger and centered. In addition, the word "iPhone" has been removed. Thus, it has a very simple appearance.

As far as display is concerned,  As far as display is concerned, iPhone SE comes with a 4.7 inch IPS LCD display. The screen resolution offers 750 x 1334 pixels and 326ppi pixel density. This is a sufficient resolution to meet Apple's "Retina" requirement. Wide viewing angles are offered thanks to the presence of IPS technology. The screen brightness is also high and offers comfortable use in the outdoor environment. Although it does not offer the same level of visual experience as Apple's higher-priced iPhones, we can easily say that we have found the iPhone SE's screen successful.

The screen supports a wide range of colors. This contributes to getting a lifelike visual while viewing photos or watching videos. Apple's True Tone technology is also available, which makes the screen more comfortable for your eyes, especially when reading.

In fact, the screen of the iPhone SE 2020 is essentially the same as the iPhone 11 screen. It only comes in a smaller size and with an aspect ratio like 16: 9 that we can now call classic. In fact, this ensures that the content fits on the screen while watching videos on YouTube or Netflix. In today's conditions, this screen is now small, but it did not give us much trouble in watching videos.

Operating System and Processor.

iPhone SE is powered by the brand-new A13 Bionic. One of the most important features of iPhone SE is that it presents an old design and structure with the hardware components of the current iPhone models of 2020.  Those who choose the iPhone SE can benefit from the power of one of Apple's best processors currently available at a much lower price. This gives the device sustainability. Since you know that there won't be a newer generation of this device released any time soon. This phone will a good investment for the next 4 years. This CPU will work amazingly well with the apps that will even be released in the upcoming two years.

According to the operating system, The iPhone SE runs on iOS 13, installed on the iPhone SE. Currently installed iOS 13.5.1, the latest version of iOS 13. The iOS 14 update, which will be released in the fall, will also come to this phone. Considering that Apple will bring the iOS 14 update even to the first iPhone SE model released in 2016, we can say that the iPhone SE is a long way up to iOS 20. In other words, it seems that 2nd generation iPhone SE users are waiting for long-term support on the software updates side.

Elements such as the stability provided by iOS, the broad Apple application ecosystem and the power offered by the A13 Bionic will help iPhone SE users have a good software experience. Almost all of Apple's applications come preinstalled on the iPhone SE. It is up to you to remove the ones you do not use, such that you will be able to remove all applications from the home screen in iOS 14.

iPhone SE offers the level of fluidity and performance of a flagship phone. Navigation in the user interface is fast, applications and games open quickly. The fluency is also at a good level in opening web pages and scrolling.

Battery and Security.

iPhone SE comprises a powerful Li-Ion battery with a capacity of 2942mAh. And this phone offers fast charging.

For the users, this capacity is now well below the average. Apple states that the iPhone SE can watch up to 13 hours of video on a single charge. This value is given as 17 hours on iPhone 11. Despite the lower battery capacity, Apple takes advantage of the A13 Bionic's power consumption, allowing the iPhone SE to deliver reasonable battery performance. We used the iPhone SE 2020 from morning to night for a day without recharging. When you take it from a full charge in the morning and deal with tasks such as surfing the internet, playing games, taking photos, there will be around 20 percent battery level in the evening. We will say that you will need to charge the iPhone SE every day, but if you take it from a full charge in the morning, you will hardly feel the need to recharge during the day.

The iPhone SE also comes with a 5W charging adapter that Apple has long placed in the boxes of their iPhones. Since the battery capacity is low, charging with this charger is slightly faster than that of the iPhone 11. We saw that an occupancy level of 29-30 percent was reached in half an hour. If you want this phone's battery to reach around 50 percent in half an hour, you can get Apple's 18W or 30W charging adapters, of course, with a USB-C to Lightning cable. With this additional cost, you will complete the charging process in less time. After all, the iPhone SE has fast charging support like the iPhone 8 released in 2017. At the same time, Qi wireless charging support, which you saw on the iPhone 8 and phones that came with it for the first time, is also available on the 2020 model iPhone SE. This phone supports 7.5W wireless charging adapters.

According to security, after experiencing the iPhone SE, we have also returned to Touch ID, which we haven't used for a long time and forgot what it feels like. Especially in this pandemic period, it is very practical to use Touch ID while wearing a face mask. Apple had improved Touch ID a lot until they switched to Face ID on their iPhones. This fingerprint reader was able to bypass the lock screen very quickly. iPhone SE users take advantage of this. We've gotten used to seeing facial recognition on Android phones with a single front camera, but the iPhone SE doesn't. The SE also supports the classical unlocking methods such as pattern and passcode. .

iPhone SE goes with a 12-megapixel single camera on the rear as clarified: 12MP( wide with f\1.8). On the front, iPhone SE has a 7MP front-facing camera with f\2.2.

In still, Apple didn't see fit to improve its 2016 sensor and it shows. Faced with the Google Pixel 3a, his opponent of the day, there is no real match. The snapshot taken by the iPhone SE shows digital noise and we notice a lack of sharpness. Despite the photo's good overall exposure, these are flaws that don't allow the device to outperform the Pixel 3a.

The selfies taken are pretty good. Without being extremely detailed, they nevertheless remain faithful. The sensor does not seem to have a problem with properly exposing your face and manages the surrounding light well.

In Portrait Mode, far from being at the same level as an iPhone 11 or even an iPhone XR, the results obtained are still usable and successful overall.

For video, the iPhone SE is able to shoot up to 4K at 60 frames per second, just like the iPhone 11.

iPhone SE can be described as an option for those who want an iPhone rather than a compact phone. Considering the prices of the iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max models, the iPhone SE stands out as the most convenient way to own an iPhone for many consumers, with a starting price of 450USD

Carrying a 4.7-inch screen that can be described as "small" today will be odd for those who have used a large screen iPhone before. For this reason, the iPhone SE 2020 stands out as a good update option for those who are already using a small-screen iPhone model for a long time, more like the iPhone 6s, 6, or first-generation iPhone SE. In this way, the already owned elements such as single-camera, small screen, compact size will be updated a little more.

For those who previously used an Android phone and want to switch to an up-to-date iPhone model, the iPhone SE will be a model that makes a difference in terms of performance. It would not be very accurate to compare the performance of iPhones and Android phones, but at the price point, the 
iPhone SE offers a performance we see in the higher-priced iPhone 11 and 11 Pro models. In this respect, it surpasses other smartphones in its class. On the camera performance side, it can easily compete with multi-camera Android phones with a single camera. But when it comes to screen and battery life, one has to stop and think. Do you want to forego a bigger screen and longer battery life for the sake of owning a high-performance iPhone? You have to answer this question and choose accordingly.

One more point should be noted that the iPhone SE is also an investment for the future. It will primarily receive software updates over the next few years. It will easily meet daily needs for a long time in terms of performance. The second-hand value does not seem to fall easily either. We know how much the first iPhone SE model released in 2016 has sold over a long period of time. A similar future seems to be waiting for the second-generation version of the iPhone SE.
