iPhone SE reviewed: iPhone 6S in a format of an iPhone 5S - Intertuto

Apple has made a comeback in the past to come out with the iPhone SE to satisfy its customers who have not seen the big screen of the iPhone 6

With the release of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, with their screens of 4.7 and 5.5 inches, many people thought the company to shifter to no longer produce other phones with a 4-inch screen. However many users have not seen the big screen iPhone 6 and its successor, the iPhone 6S series. They preferred a smaller iPhone. That's why, Apple has made a comeback in the past to come out with the iPhone SE. And the easiest way to think about the iPhone SE is to use an iPhone 6S in the body of an iPhone 5S.

Back to the future: iPhone 6S inside an iPhone 5S

While holding the SE, one can think of the 5S. They have exactly the same dimensions, even though the 5S weighs 0.03 ounces less. Their bodies are about the same, although the SE has a slimmer, less square design. Both devices have a 4-inch screen.

However, in the iPhone SE, we will find the Apple 64-bit A9 processor as used on the iPhone 6S, support for NFC and Apple Pay, a long battery, a Touch ID sensor, a camera rear well improved, etc.

Best performance, best camera

The SE at a speed of 6S, they are both manufactured around an A9 processor and a 2 GB RAM. For the speed test of the network connection and the speed of the device when loading images, HTML rendering and JavaScript processing, the 6S is slightly faster. But for basic tasks, the OS is as fast as the 6S.

The cameras used in the iPhone 6S and the iPhone SE are completely the same, at least as far as the high resolution rear camera is concerned. Both phones use a 12-megapixel camera that can record panoramic 63-megapixel images, record video with 4K HD resolution, and support up to 240 frames per second in slow motion. They offer the same image stabilization, burst mode and other features.

For those who take a lot of selfies. The 2 phones are different on the front camera. The 6S offers a 5 megapixel camera, while the SE has a 1.2 megapixel sensor.

For the life of the battery, the big screen of 6S requires more battery, which leaves the OS a range of about 15% more, according to Apple.

Touch: ID, but not 3D

The iPhone SE uses the first-generation Touch ID sensor, which is slower and a little less accurate than the second generation version used by the 6S series. The Touch ID fingerprint sensor on the iPhone SE is similar to its main button. This provides improved security for the phone and is also a key component of Apple Pay.

As far as the theme is concerned, the SE does not have 3D Touch. This feature allows the phone to detect the pressure on the screen and react in different ways depending on it. However, it was not as successful as some had predicted. The 6S and the SE can capture live photos.

When you buy the iPhone SE, you get the high-end model in a format that is more suitable for people with small hands, those who want greater portability and want to weigh less. It's kind of the best of both worlds.

Some features of the iPhone SE:

1. The good

- Strong performance in a small package

- excellent camera

- Support for Apple technologies such as Apple Pay and Touch ID

- good autonomy

2. The bad

- No 3D touch screen

- Touch ID uses a slower first-generation sensor
