Who should buy iPhone SE

Who should buy iPhone SE

Apple last week brought a new change in the fast-growing market of smartphones by announcing the iPhone SE. This new iPhone model isn’t a significant upgrade over the last year’s iPhone 6s. Yet, it gained huge focus. It gained huge focus not just from the tech media but also from millions of customers all around the world. The Cupertino giant mainly designed a comeback of the iconic 4-inch size with the iPhone SE. But a straightforward question that comes to the mind of many is that can it be the next iPhone? Or simply, is the iPhone made specifically for you? We’re here to find out in detail.

Is the iPhone SE made for you?

The Apple iPhone SE is the company’s latest attempt to amalgamate its high-end hardware with a small form-factor. On the very first glimpse, it’s just impossible to differentiate the new iPhone model with the years old iPhone 5s. But you need to distinguish the both to choose the best one for you.

Why a smaller iPhone in 2016

Apple has build the iPhone SE by considering two major things in mind: to offer a new piece of hardware to those who just love smaller phones and to give an iPhone option to those who want to switch from Android or a feature phone. It might succeed appropriately.

This new iPhone model is the latest 4-incher in town

If you already own an iPhone 5s, you must know the benefits of using a 4-inch device. It’s quite compact, feasible and highly pocketable, too. But at the same time, you’re the best person to reveal what are the cons of having a smaller phone.

Is it a worthy upgrade over iPhone 5s

Many people believe that the iPhone SE is an upgrade over the iPhone 5s. But it’s somehow illegitimate.

The iPhone SE and the iPhone 5s both have the same 4-inch Retina display with the same 1,136 x 640 pixels resolution. Also, there is almost the same build — with the same chamfered edges and a two-color design on the back.

Apple iPhone SE vs iPhone 5s

No, there isn’t any visible difference between the iPhone SE and iPhone 5s

You won’t see any difference on the display prospect or when holding the two at the same time. However, there are some performance advancements. These noticeable differences are there thanks to the presence of an all-new Apple A9 chip on the new iPhone model. You’ll also get upgraded camera sensors and an improved 4G support.

But a valid question arises here. Can you still prefer a 4-inch iPhone? You may not.

Particularly in India, the iPhone SE is set to go on sale starting April 8 at an initial price of Rs. 39,000. This is higher than the price of the iPhone 6 and is just a few bucks less than the iPhone 6s. Thus, you should pick either the iPhone 6 or 6s. You can also make your mind for the iPhone 5s and save some of your precious pennies.

Why iPhone SE

Having said that, the Apple iPhone SE has some noteworthy features that make it a must-have gadget for today.

Apple has provided its premium Live Photos and Apple Pay that were initially exclusive to the iPhone 6 and 6s. While Live Photos allows you to make your still shots interesting and more memorable, Apple Pay is highly useful and a handy approach for payments if you’re living in countries like the US, UK or China.

Apple iPhone SE does have some new features to persuade you

So if you’re really keen to experience what Apple is offering through its iPhone SE, this must be your next pick. But in all the other cases, you should look at some other iPhone models (this can be the iPhone 5s, 6 or the 6s).
