It was not hard for me to recommend the new iPhone SE when my mother in law accidentally broke her other device. You basically get a new modern iPhone. Contained in a iPhone 8 body. With updated internals such as the A13 Bionic CPU, Good camera, WiFi 6 support and wireless charging.
With a price from $399 makes it affordable for an iPhone. Apple is going to sell millions of these.
To make a device at this price point, some features had to go, such as:
- No Face ID
- No Multi-lens cameras
- No 3D Touch
For people, that just needs a small phone and wants to be in the Apple ecosystem. This is a great choice.
- 3GB RAM (50% more than iPhone 8)
- Portrait Mode
- Better Video Stabilization
- A13 CPU (Same as in iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro / Max)
