Apple iPhone SE 2020 (128GB)
The iPhone SE looks like an iPhone 8 but works like Apple’s top-of-the-line iPhone 11 Pro. It comes with features such as iOS 13, Apple’s A13 Bionic chipset, 12 MP main camera, wireless charging, and a 4.7 inches Retina IPS LCD. Apple iPhone SE 2020 is by far the most affordable iPhone of all time and we have categorized it as a personal favorite. Other versions of iPhone SE 2020 come with 3GB RAM and either 64GB or 256GB of internal storage.
Durable Glass and aluminum design
What a durable glass and aluminum design get you is a premium (and durable duh) phone. What it also gets you is Apple Pay (Visa, MasterCard, AMEX certified) and IP67 dust/water resistance up to 1m for 30 mins. The Apple SE 2020 looks everything like the iPhone 8 though they are different. It weighs about 148 g and has these dimensions – 138.4 x 67.3 x 7.3 mm. Touch ID is back and of course, it lets you securely unlock your iPhone and sign in to apps instantly. Everything Apple makes is designed to give you control over your information. This is particularly true for both hardware and software. The back panel has a single main camera and an Apple logo. On the front are bezels with that classic Touch ID button on the chin.
Apple’s A13 Bionic chipset
Apple iPhone SE 2020 (128GB) packs our most powerful chip into our most popular size at our most affordable price. It’s just what you’ve been waiting for – Source, website. It has the A13 Bionic, which is impressive because it’s the same processor as the iPhone 11 Pro. Mind you there is no faster processor in a smartphone for any price. Yes, this phone is as fast (faster) as you would expect it to be thanks to its A13 Bionic chipset. But speed is not all this chip has to offer. It will also ensure importantly you get OS updates for many years to come. Most Android phones cost much more than this yet only get up to 2 years max of updates. The original iPhone SE, released in March 2016, supported the latest iOS update last year. This is why Apple is cool.
4.7” Retina HD display
Apple SE 2020 has a brilliant 4.7” Retina HD display. We see a smartly implemented trade-off here. This display is 4.7 inches for it if were larger then definitely SE 2020 would have been more costly. But in exchange for this, you are getting iPhone 11 Pro performance. A little price to pay for speed and unparalleled performance don’t you think? The display has a 750 x 1334 pixels resolution and is Ion-strengthened glass it oleophobic coating as you would expect. And of course, when you talk about the display of an iPhone (any iPhone) the words such as Wide color gamut and True-tone never fail to pop up. We are also looking at a display with up to 625 nits max brightness as advertised by its maker.
Apple iPhone SE 2020 Camera
Hey there, smile, you’re in Portrait mode :). The advanced camera system of Apple iPhone SE 2020 with A13 Bionic brings you Portrait mode. Portrait mode artfully blurs the background to put the focus on your subject. Now, this is a mode that is more often than not found on main camera lenses. But the SE 2020 brings it to the front camera. So you are getting blurred backgrounds here even when you’re taking selfies. This is why we say, “Hey there, smile, you’re in Portrait mode :).” The single main camera of Apple SE 20202 is a 12 MP, f/1.8 wide shooter. It has PDAF and wait for it – Optical Image Stabilization. It is capable of shooting 4K videos at [email protected]/30/60fps. The selfie camera of the SE 202o is a 7MP front-facing camera. With it comes Face detection, HDR and panorama. It can shoot [email protected] videos with gyro-EIS. The most notable feature of Apple SE 2020 cameras are Depth Control, Portrait Lighting, and of course, Portrait selfies.
Battery Capacity and life
You would expect since it has the same processor as the 11 Pro then it would handle power management as likewise. That is logical, yes but it isn’t the case. But don’t get us wrong. Apple iPhone SE has an 1821 mAh battery that might just let you watch up to 13 hours of video on a single charge. With it comes wireless charging and/or an 18W fast-charge adapter to go from zero to up to 50 percent in 30 minutes.
Other iPhone SE 2020 features include Haptic Touch, Augmented reality, Stereo audio recording, Wi‑Fi 6, Audio sharing, and Dual SIM dual numbers.
