🤔Why buy the new iPhone SE?
Less upscale than the iPhone 11 or iPhone XS, the 2020 iPhone SE will appeal to fans of compact smartphones and lovers of Apple’s “old-fashioned” design. The affordable iPhone is especially perfect for users who want to trade in their aging iPhone 6 / 6S / 7/8 but can’t imagine having to part with the Touch ID fingerprint reader. We quickly take stock of the strengths of this iPhone.
A price defying any competition
Sold at a starting price of 489 euros, it is the cheapest iPhone in Apple’s catalog. Thus, it is almost 3 times cheaper than the iPhone 11 Pro Max. It’s also half the price of last year’s entry-level iPhone 11, which sold for over $ 800. In short, the next generation iPhone SE brings the best features of iOS and quality apps from the AppStore at an unbeatable price. For less than $ 500, you are also guaranteed to receive up to 5 major iOS updates. Your iPhone will be up to date until 2025 and the release of iOS 19!
A timeless and compact design
With its 4.7-inch LCD screen, the 2020 iPhone SE is establishing itself as one of the only compact smartphones on the market, currently dominated by large-format phones, the phablets. It will be recalled that the smallest iPhone released last year is covered with a 6.1-inch screen! In addition, its look will appeal to fans of the TouchID fingerprint reader, still resistant to Face ID facial recognition (integrated into new iPhones since iPhone X). Old school, the 2020 iPhone SE will have no trouble finding its place in the market.
Wireless charging: no more cables!
Unlike the similar iPhone 6 / 6S and 7, the 2020 iPhone SE is compatible with wireless induction charging. To charge your smartphone, you no longer need to take out the traditional Lightning cable: simply place the iPhone on a charging cradle (sold separately). This technology allows you to say goodbye to unsightly cables lying on your desk or nightstand.
The same powerful processor as the iPhone 11
If the iPhone SE 2020 is inspired by the iPhone 8, it is nevertheless powered by the same powerful SoC as the iPhone 11 released last year: the A13 Bionic. Coupled with 3 GB of RAM, the chip promises high performance, on this side, it is on par with the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. For € 489, Apple offers one of the most powerful smartphones on the market, far ahead of some high-end Android benchmarks. Finally, it should be noted that it is compatible with Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi 6, which is still rare, even on the high end.
