iPhone SE 2 review: £419 well spent? | Trusted Reviews


The iPhone SE 2 is £419/$399 making it a great deal for an Apple device. Here's our review with a look at the camera, performance and more.

At $399/£419 this is an excellent buy;Flagship performance should keep this speedy for years; Great photos in daylight situations;Impressive video capabilities;Offers a strong proposition for those who don’t want big phones

Battery life is far from excellent;A new design would’ve been welcome

iPhone SE (2020) review


The 2020 iPhone SE is slim, affordable and future-proofed

Lightweight frame ; Low price for iPhone ; Powerful chipset

Battery life could be better ; Old screen technology ; No headphone jack

This is the phone to get if you just want a new iPhone that will last you a few years, but don’t want to pay a lot for it. The iPhone SE 2020 offers ‘decent but not top-end’ performance: a good camera, enough power, a great App Store to plunder and a...

Apple iPhone SE (2020) review: a cheap iPhone that feels premium in almost every way


The new iPhone SE nails the important stuff and gives you the build quality of an iPhone Pro for less than half the price

Apple iPhone SE (2020) review


Apple's cheapest iPhone is a serious bargain

Excellent build quality ; Colourful, detailed screen ; Musical sound

Camera not great in low light ; Battery life could be better

Apple’s budget iPhone delivers a satisfying and slick smartphone experience at an attractive price

Apple iPhone SE (2020) review: On the money


The 2020 iPhone SE is like the iPhone 8 reborn, complete with current top-drawer spec. But does the small iPhone still make sense in today's world?

Affordable price but flagship specification ; Small size has its charms ; Decent camera performance ; Water-resistant design

2017 design shows with large top/bottom bezel ; Limited battery - and no fast-charger in the box ; No Face ID - it's Touch ID only ; No Night Mode

Overall the 2020 iPhone SE is, in every respect, on the money.

Apple iPhone SE 3 (2022) review: One foot in the past


Impressive performance and camera quality, but battery life and a sluggish 60Hz display mar the iPhone SE 2022's appeal

Neat and pocketable ; 5G and superb performance ; Camera is great

Small screen, big bezels ; Poor battery life

As with most Apple products, there are plenty of things the Apple iPhone SE (2022) does well. Its camera is great, the display looks lovely (as long as you’re not bothered by the slow 60Hz refresh rate) and the high levels of performance the A15 Bionic...

iPhone SE 2 Review


The iPhone SE 2 is Apple's cheapest phone and the ideal choice if you're upgrading from an iPhone 6, 7 or an Android that's starting to show its age.

– Size, speed and camera

– Overly familiar design, short battery life

The iPhone SE 2 is a great, small phone that gives you access to all the benefits of iOS without making you pay over the odds.

iPhone SE review: Classic iPhone design, but with 2020 processing power


The new $399 iPhone SE looks like an iPhone 8 but works like Apple's top-of-the-line iPhone 11 Pro.

iPhone 11 Pro-level performance

Selfie camera is mediocre

Apple iPhone SE (2020) review


Smartphone brilliance, but we need more juice

App store ; Smooth operating

Battery life isn’t great

A perfectly fine iPhone which lacks a few flagship features, with serious performance capacity slightly hindered by poor battery

iPhone SE (2020)


The 2020 iPhone SE packs in a top-spec processor and flagship features at a bargain price, but dated design and bad battery hold it back.
