Apple iPhone SE (2020) Review

Score: 81.5 / 100

Apple iPhone SE (2020) is an impressive cellphone launched a few years ago, which counts with a high speed 64-bit Hexa-Core CPU ticking at 2.65 gigahertz, a medium 4.7" screen, and two cameras, a 12 megapixels back facing camera and a 7 megapixels front-facing camera. But let's get into more detail.

This phone ships with a high speed 2650 MHz Hexa-Core processor, packed into an Apple A13 Bionic APL1W85 (7 nm) chip with a great 3 GB RAM memory. This cellphone comes with a great 64 GB internal storage memory and though it doesn't come with an external memory slot, it is still enough to install hundreds of apps and even the largest games available nowadays without even thinking about how much storage capacity is left.

Apple offers this phone in three different color options: black, red and white. This device design is a mix of Glass and Aluminum . Whereas the iPhone SE (2020) is only 5.45 inches long, it's able to fit a a 4.7 inches screen. This device is incredibly slim, with a thickness of just 0.29 inches. It seems like Apple didn't care so much about the weight in this 5.22 ounces cellphone.

Apple designed this phone with an absolutely amazing 4.7" display, and a 750 x 1334 resolution, making everything look absolutely perfect.

This device is equipped with two cameras, a 12 mega-pixels back camera and a 7 MP front facing camera. this phone's back camera has an aperture of 1.8 so it can capture awesome pictures even in poor lighting conditions. It can also capture 3840x2160 4K videos at 60 frames per second, and slow motion videos in (Full HD) (1920x1080) at 240 frames per second (8 times slower ). Additionally, this phone's camera also counts with time lapse video and auto-focus.

The iPhone SE (2020) packs a 1821 mAh medium capacity Li - Ion non-removable battery, which is quite low for a phone like this. An important issue to consider is that the iPhone SE (2020)'s battery isn't replaceable so you won't be able to replace it when it begins to have trouble holding its charge, making it necessary to change the whole cellphone.

This phone features wi-fi connectivity (which it can share with other devices around, acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE-A 4G really quick connection and also HSPA+ data connection (a bit slower 4G technology) and 3G fast data connection, supported by HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This phone uses a Nano SIM card for GSM services.

The Apple iPhone SE (2020) also includes a great numbre of useful characteristics as Fingerprint Scanner, Wireless charger compatibility, NFC (Near Field Communication), Bluetooth (5.0 ) and GPS Navigation, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This cellphone is priced around 399 dollars, quite a high price for comparing with similar phones.

This cellphone includes Documentation , Lightning to USB Cable, USB Power Adapter and EarPods with Lightning Connector.
