iPhone se 2020 Review: cheapest iPhone from Apple
iPhone SE 2020 price and specification
First let's talk about price. In terms of price, the iPhone SE 2020 has a direct collision with the OnePlus 8 series. The starting price of the iPhone SE 2020 in Nepal about Rs 65000, which means you will get a variant with 64 GB storage, while the 128 GB variant is priced at Rs 75000 and the 256 GB storage variant is priced at Rs 85,300. We have used the 256 GB variant for review. Compared to iPhone XR, iPhone SE (2020) is about 10 thousand rupees cheaper.
iPhone SE 2020 Specification
Apple has given its new iPhone SE 2 a 4.7-inch Retina HD display with support for HDR10 playback and Dolby Vision. Also it has Touch ID. The iPhone SE 2 has the A13 bionic processor which is in the iPhone 11 series. The new iPhone has a single rear camera setup which is of 12 megapixels and its aperture is F / 1.8. You can also do 4K videography with the camera. It has a 7 megapixel front camera for selfies. Features like HDR and portrait will be available with the camera.
This phone is water and dustproof. For this, the new iPhone has got the rating of IP67. No Android phone in this range will get IP67 rating. The iPhone SE 2 will be available in three color variants, Black, White and Red. The company has said that the iPhone SE2 has a powerful battery, although like every time, this time too Apple has not given information about the MAH of the battery.
The body of the phone is made of glass and aerospace grade aluminum. The phone also supports wireless charging. In iPhone SE 2, Apple has given fast charging up to 18 watts but has not given fast charger in the box with the phone. You can use fast charger of any company if you want. The phone supports dual SIM, one of which is SIM e-SIM. The phone will be available in 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB storage variants.
What's different about iPhone SE 2020?
Looking at this phone, one would be deceived that it is a new iPhone SE, as its design is very similar to the old model, but in terms of processor camera and features, this phone is new. In iPhone SE2 you get iOS 13 in addition to A13 chipset. Also the camera gets better than before. Although the design of this phone is similar to iPhone 7 and 8, but there are changes in the new iPhone regarding the camera. You will not find portrait mode in the front camera of iPhone 7 but in iPhone SE 2020 you will find portrait mode in front camera like iPhone x series, iPhone xr and iPhone 11 series. Also in the new iPhone you get wireless charging, fast charging and dual SIM support.
Design, display, hardware and software of iPhone SE 2020
You don't need to say anything special about the design of iPhone SE. The phone is compact and handy. There is no problem in using the phone with one hand. You will miss the notch in the display. At a time when all Android companies are talking about bezelless displays, Apple has not paid any attention to the bezel of iPhone SE 2020.
The bulge of the rear camera has been reduced compared to the iPhone xr which is good. In this case, there is no risk of cracking the lens of the rear camera even if you use the phone without a cover, as is the case with the iPhone xr. In the phone you will find quite a bezel on both the top and bottom. There is no problem with color and brightness. Whether it is hot sun or dark night, the display works well.
IPhone is disabled? How to Remove passcode?
You will not be able to feel any difference in the sharpness of the display of iPhone xr and iPhone SE 2020. You can see the difference in the photo below. The power button and SIM card are given in the tray right and the Silent button with volume is given in the left. The speaker grille and charging port are downstairs. There is no need to say anything about build quality and finishing. As always with this phone you will get the trust of Apple for years.
There is no need to say anything special about the hardware and software, because the software in the phone is the same as the iPhone 11 series, just a little change has been made in the hardware of the camera. We saw a change in iPhone SE 2020 that you can also switch off the phone with the power button while this is not the case with iPhone 11 or XR series.
Performance and battery life of iPhone SE 2020
As far as performance is concerned, there is no problem with the software and hardware as before, but the small display during gaming makes the fun gritty and this phone is not for those who are constantly watching videos and gaming enthusiasts. Is. While playing Pubji and Asphalt 9, we did not have any problem with the frame rate nor did we have to deal with the problem of lagging. The phone does not get hot even after playing games for about 20 minutes which is a plus point, as most phones get a little hot after playing games like Pubg for 15 minutes.
No problem with the graphics. Better sharpness and color is the best. The audio is a bit short. Touch ID is fast and there is no problem in configuring the fingerprint. As far as the battery is concerned, it takes more than 3 hours to fully charge the phone. Battery backup is lower than the iPhone Xr. If you watch a few videos, play games then you may have to charge the phone within 12-15 hours. The iPhone SE 2020 disappointed us in terms of battery.
IPhone 13 has five cameras
Camera performance of iPhone SE 2020
The phone has a single camera of 12 megapixels with an aperture of f / 1.8, while the front camera is of 7 megapixels with an aperture of f / 2.2. Night mode is not given separately like iPhone 11 series with both the cameras. Apart from this, you will also find macro lenses and telephoto lenses in the phone, although nowadays most of the Android phones are getting macro lenses, but in my personal opinion, macro lenses in any smartphone are of no use.
In the new iPhone you will get portrait mode with both lenses and with a maximum of 60 frames per second you will get a chance of 4K videography. By default the camera records 4K at a rate of 30 frames per second.
The quality of the camera is good even after having a single lens but the camera of iPhone SE 2020 has a little noise compared to iPhone XR. The detailing in the close-up is amazing but when you zoom in on the photo with the log shot, the detailing is lacking. The quality of the flash light and portrait mode at night is commendable.
The detailing and sharpness in the photo is excellent. Colors also come open. Like other iPhones, the iPhone SE 2020's camera only recognizes humans. It takes a lot of effort to click a photo of an object, then the camera focuses. The phone gets a little hot when using the camera for a long time.
Camera speed is good. The detailing in the portrait photo is fantastic and the camera easily finds the gap in the background and subject. Subjects are not blurred in portrait mode. The performance of Auto HDR is great. You also get the evergreen feature live photo in iPhone SE2.
Turning it on will let you know what happened just before clicking a photo. Speaking of the front camera, the front camera is fine but not great. The photo lacks detailing. The good thing is that you can adjust the blur even after clicking the photo in portrait mode from both front and rear cameras.
So overall, iPhone SE 2020 is a great phone. Performance is not a problem, but if you are fond of big gaming, at the same time you need new design i.e. notch or dot notch or notchless and bezelless phone then iPhone SI 2020 is not for you.
