Apple Inc. launched 2nd generation of budget iPhone SE series. It was launched in India on April 15th , 2020 with a price tag of ₹42,500. By launching a phone in this price range Apple’s intentions are clear, they want to take on their rivals like Samsung and other companies who currently have a good customer base in this price range head on.
Processor – A13 bionic (Hexa core)
Ram – 3GB
Storage – 64GB, 128GB, 256GB
Camera – 12 MP back. 7MP front.
Features dual sim ( physical sim and e-sim).
Battery – 1821 mAh.
Display – 4.7 inch IPS LCD.
The iPhone’s design is similar to the design of iPhone 8 with the glass back and aluminium frame. The main difference is the Apple logo which is repositioned to the centre back of the body. Unlike the other new generation iPhones this one has a touch id. It comes in three colours black, white and product red.
The new iPhone SE has the Apple’s most powerful chip which is the A13 bionic with an M13 motion co-processor and third generation neural engine. The iPhone also has IP67 dust and water resistance rating. The A13 bionic makes this phone super smooth and capable of handling many tasks at once. The iPhone can also run many heavy games without lags and on best quality possible.
The display is a big disappointment for those who prefer a larger display size. As the screen size is only 4.7 inches and it also has bezels. But the good thing is it can play HDR 10 and Dolby vision ready content. And it also features haptic touch which is very satisfying to use.
As always the camera is one of the bests in this segment. You won’t be disappointed with an iPhone’s camera. The camera can give a tough competition to other phones in this price range. The camera is capable of recording upto 1080p at 60fps, it also features the depth effect by which you can select how much do you want to blur the background. The downside is the camera doesn’t has a night mode due to the single lense system.
If you are looking to buy an iPhone in this price range, we would prefer you should go for the iPhone XR because it has a much bigger screen size and battery. Nowadays 1821 mah battery and 4.7 inch screen size is not worth it for a phone priced above ₹40k. And if you are not die hard Apple fan and are looking to buy a phone , We think you can buy other premium android phones in this range which will give the flagship experience at the same price. Like the OnePlus 7T or the Realme X2.
