One of Apple’s newest launches has been the Apple iPhone SE. This time, Apple is thinking different from other manufacturers. The main attraction of iPhone SE is its compact size. It is a 4-inch screen phone! Yes, you heard it right. In the era of 5.5 inches cheap big screen phones, Apple is trying to make a change by going compact. It’s similar to Apple iPhone 5S but with much more great features. Released on 31st of March, it is a 4-inch phone, said to be “The most powerful 4-inch device by Apple” in terms of shape and size! Let us see what all things this small iPhone SE has and what will be the expected iPhone SE price in India!
Apple iPhone SE is very similar to the iPhone 5S, the only difference being the “SE” Text at the back and the addition of rose gold color. The screen on the iPhone SE is 640 x 1136 pixels and can show nearly 16 million colors. The screen misses 3D Touch which was a feature in the iPhone 6 and some other phones and tablets by Apple. In terms of weight, the SE weighs around 113 gm which is fairly light. As the phone is similar to the 5S, it measures at 123.8 x 58.6 x 7.6 mm.
It has got upgraded internals for good performance. The iPhone SE includes A9 Chip which is the same chip used in the newer generation of iPhones. This makes the phone powerful enough to handle anything you throw at it with ease. It also has a great battery which is said to give 14 hours of talk-time and 13 hours of internet usage.
It also has the same rear camera from the iPhone 6 with some improved features. Talking about the camera, the iPhone SE also gets rid of the camera bump which was found and hated in the iPhone 6 and 6S. The camera is good enough to take 4k photos, videos, and 64-pixel panoramas.
Like all iPhones, The SE has no micro-SD card for storage expansion. So you are limited to whatever storage size you choose while purchasing the phone itself. You can have HSPA+ for 3G and LTE for 4G which makes the phone good enough in the internet department. The Phone comes with 2 GB RAM which is enough and should not be an issue for most of the people.
It also comes with an NFC chip which is helpful if you use anything like Apple Pay. As always, the box includes the Phone itself, Ear Pods, A 5W USB power adapter and a lightning to USB cable. Other features are Wi-Fi, v4.2 Bluetooth, and GPS.
After all these good features, there are some cons too. First off, the Selfie camera is very underwhelming. Also, the phone starts at 16 GB only which is very low. For example, you will run out of storage in a matter of minutes after recording a video with the 4k camera of the SE. Luckily, you can get a higher storage model. Another con is obviously the very small screen. 4 inches is way too less and is obviously not created for gaming and/or media consumption. The phone also lacks OIS or Optical Video Stabilization which is a very important feature of people with shaky hands.
Overall, it is a great phone for people with small hands and is not made for a majority of people anyway. Apple iPhone SE is expected to launch in India on 8th of April, 2016. The price for iPhone SE is fixed at Rs. 39,000! As per the news, the phone is priced very high in India. It only takes Rs. 10,653 to make an iPhone SE! Rest are the charges which we have to pay extra in India. This news is disclosed by a research firm IHS.
So we can conclude that you can buy this phone as it is an Apple iPhone and the quality will be obviously superb. If you have any doubts or you have any points to add here please feel free to comment below.
