5 Reasons Why iPhone SE Could Be the Perfect Phone For You

Apple recently released an iPhone SE, marking a radical departure from its previous practice of releasing a phone with an increased screen size.  A lot of people desired an iPhone like the 5S and Apple eventually fulfilled their demand. The iPhone SE comes with a 4-inch screen, decent processing power and photo capturing abilities. Let’s go through some of the best features which will make it the perfect phone for you.

Phone Size

A lot of people have small hands or they simply prefer to use smaller phones which can be easily used with one hand. Yes, there are plenty of such phones in the market but they offer mediocre hardware. Some Android OEMs do sell high-end small phones that are perfect for one-handed use, but there’s no option for those who like an Apple device, until now that is. iPhone SE is perfect for those people as it has a small screen and decent sized physical dimensions (123.8 x 58.6 x 7.6 mm) and an acceptable weight of only 113 grams.

Design

The iPhone SE comes with a full metal design like the 5s. There is simply no other high-end or even a quality low-end smartphone out in the market which offers a premium full metal build and a small size. While Apple’s bigger iPhones faced the heat when the Bendgate scandal gained notoriety, the smaller iPhone doesn’t have such problems due to the smaller size. If you like metal phones or simply preferred the design offered by iPhone 5 or 5s, then the SE is definitely for you.

Processing Power

There’s not much to say here. iPhone SE comes with a dual-core A9 chip, 2GB of RAM and a PowerVR GT7600 GPU. That’s more than enough to meet a user’s any requirements. It can run all games and apps without hiccups. The phone can even record and play high-res videos. Coupled with a fast operating system that takes advantage of the hardware onboard, and you don’t have anything to worry about for a few years.

Camera

The iPhone SE comes with a 12MP camera unit with f/2.2 aperture and it can record 4K Ultra HD and 1080p videos. There’s an option to record 240fps slow motion videos as well. The sensor size may not be big and there might not be OIS, but that’s to be expected from such a small sized phone. The front camera can take 1.2MP pictures and use the screen for well-lit selfies.

Price

The smartphone is the cheapest Apple smartphone to date and it could also be one of its least profitable ones. You can get the 16GB model for $399 (approx Rs. 41,800) or the 64GB one for $499 (approx Rs 52,300). Even though the 16GB one is more or less useless due to low storage, the 64GB model is still far cheaper than the bigger sized iPhones.

    i have only 1 reason that its not a perfect phone for me and it is “iOS”

    • Athar

      Man u need a reality check…
      iOS is the reason people love iPhone.. I used both Android and iOS, and ios is by far better than Android. Easy to use, didn’t lag, don’t have to clear the RAM to play heavy games… And Apps quality is superior than Android…

      • SSyar

        thats what laymen do..,,
        ever been to XDA.,, ? this is where android steps ahead from iOS

        • Eli Ehsan

          Ever done a Jailbreak?! that’s where XDA hacks are originated from… :)

          • viper_pk

            Here we go again…. another iOS vs Android battle

          • shujaswati

            With android root, u can do things beyond your imagination.
            with jail break, only cracks apps can be installed, puff

          • SSyar

            yeah i first Jailbroke on iOS 2.1.1 but then all you end up doing UI tweaks and playing with springboard

      • Aadil

        You don’t have to clear the RAM on Androids too if you spend the same amount on an Android phone that you would for an iPhone. You can’t expect a 10k phone to beat a 70k phone.
        Besides, iOS lacks “REAL” multitasking thus it is for simpletons who have little to no tech knowledge. There is no good or bad here. Depends on the user’s requirements and preference

      • shujaswati

        iOS is limiting everything. U can’t even use bluetooth for sharing file, for that u need to jail break. Iphone is like a cage for android users, no room to breath. U are program to follow the rules for lag-free experience. On android u have full freedom.

        And never compare some low quality android with iphone when comparing performance and lag. I have S6e with over 70+ apps installed and never notice a lag or slowness. Regarding apps quality, its about exploring. U can top-notch games/apps on playStore as well.

      • hassancent

        i never have lag on infinix note 2. I can play 4 games in multitasking like gta san gta vice city. still have 500mb ram free. dunno what are you talking about. Maybe you have used a cheap 4k qmobile. You can compare that to iphone

  • Fakhre Alam

    1 reason not to buy it = still expensive

    • Jahangir

      I second that.

      • shujaswati

        i third that

  • Adeel

    Apple always be a trend setter, now the word SE going to popular and we can see it in future android phones

    • Fakhre Alam

      SE: still expensive :-p

      • Adeel

        :D
        If you want quality product than you have to pay ;)

  • Eli Ehsan

    Oh the Gullibility of Apple… :) :D

    What are you on? There are literally dozens of phones in the market right now which offer a premium full metal build. There’s one even from QMobile!

    > The smartphone is the cheapest Apple smartphone to date and it could also be one of the least profitable ones.

    I don’t get it? Least profitable for who? Apple? In which case, nice joke. But, still, why would that make me want to get the phone.

    Two years old Mi model can beat the latest iPhone SE hands down.
