iPhone SE 2020: Reasons to buy
Here are the top 5 reasons why Apple’s new entry-level phone is well worth the money.
A13 Bionic processor
While Android phone makers saddle their budget handsets with budget CPUs, the iPhone SE packs Apple’s A13 Bionic processor, which is the the fastest chip you can get inside a phone. This same chip powers the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max.
Very capable cameras
Although the iPhone SE has only a single rear 12MP and front 7MP camera, they too benefit from the A13 Bionic chip. The iPhone SE supports Portrait mode with depth control and 6 Portrait Lighting effects, and Smart HDR helps to intelligently re-light recognized subjects. The front camera can pull off portraits as well. Last but not least, you get extended dynamic range when shooting videos with the rear camera at put to 40K and 30 fps. Add it all up and the iPhone SE could be the best camera phone for those on a budget.
iPhone SE 2020 5 reasons to buy
A premium design — that’s water resistant
Buying a cheap phone typically means opting for a cheap-looking chassis, but the iPhone SE offers a premium look and feel. It’s made of glass and 7000 series aluminum, and the aluminum sides are color matched with the back. The iPhone SE is also IP67 water resistant, so it can be submerged for up to 30 minutes.
As secure as Face ID is, there are lots of people who still prefer the ease and speed to Touch ID. You can power on the screen and unlock the iPhone SE with one touch, and use the same sensor for Apple Pay, entering passwords and more. Plus, while Face ID has trouble recognizing you when you wear a mask — which many states are mandating — Touch ID doesn’t have that problem.
Naturally, Apple’s budget phone has a handful of drawbacks. Here are a few reasons to skip the iPhone SE 2020.
