iPhone SE

 

iPhone SE review: If you hate the modern trend for big phones, the iPhone SE is the best phone for you. But should you still buy it?

Compact body ; Great camera ; Excellent performance ; Solid battery life

Average screen ; Poor front-facing camera

The iPhone 5S didn’t have the stamina I hoped for when I reviewed it back in 2013. It was average at best. Since the iPhone SE’s battery is only a smidgen larger, I didn’t have high hopes, despite the fact that Apple told me battery life is 50% better...

iPhone SE review: you won't buy this phone - but you will tell someone else to

 

It's the iPhone for people who think they want an iPhone

Powerful for the price ; Excellent 12MP camera & 4K ; Easy to recommend

Needs a new design ; No 32GB option ; No expandable storage

Apple iPhone SE review

 

Appears to be the best value iPhone, but the high end model is still where it's at...

Small screen with powerful spec ; Strong camera ; Good battery life

Contrast could be better ; Audio lacks in dynamics and subtlety

The SE is a good value powerful phone for those who need a small screen, but its pricier sibling does better with audio and video

Apple iPhone SE review: Great things can come in small packages

 

Bigger is normally always better, but sometimes great things come in small packages too.

Small size will suit a certain audience ; Feature set means plenty of power ; Accessible price point

Not a new design ; Small size won't be for all - can feel crammed on screen ; No 3D Touch ; 1.2MP front camera ; No MIMO Wi-Fi

The iPhone SE is a great smartphone that brings plenty of power in a small package. It's designed to appeal to those who aren't fussed by today's typically large flagship phones.

Apple iPhone SE review

 

This compact iPhone packs a major punch

Great battery life ; Compact without compromise ; It’s a bargain... for an iPhone

16GB? Come on ; Old design ; No 3D Touch

A form factor favourite returns rejuvenated. Apple's iPhone SE is the best small phone you can buy.

iPhone SE review

 

A perfectly palm-friendly phone

Great power ; Longer battery than 5S ; Lower price

Tired design ; Old, old screen technology ; Rattling home key

Apple's really dialled back the screen and design to hit the price point - but it's still a brilliant phone for the subset of people that still crave a small phone.

iPhone SE 2 release date: Is Apple's miniature phone line dead?

 

If you've been praying for a follow-up to the smaller iPhone, we have some bad news for you...

The report hints at $450 (~£326). Even taking the lack of sales tax (with VAT, that would bring it up to £391), I’d be very surprised if Apple went in that low – UK prices usually correlate with US, so $450 means £450 – but fingers crossed that a lower...
