Pros and cons

According to our mobile phone expert
  • Take sharp photos with the 12-megapixel camera with portrait mode.
  • Thanks to the fast A13 processor, your device can also handle the most demanding apps.
  • Charge your iPhone SE easily without cables via wireless charging.
  • The lack of an ultra-wide angle and telephoto lens makes the camera less versatile.
  • You unlock the Apple iPhone SE with Touch ID, because Face ID isn't available on this iPhone.
  • A charger and earbuds aren't included, so you have to purchase those separately.

Product description

Note: a charger and earbuds aren't included, so you have to purchase those separately.

The Apple iPhone SE 256GB Black is a real powerhouse in a recognizable device. Thanks to the superfast A13 Bionic chip, all your apps load in seconds. With 256GB of storage, you have more than enough space for all your photos, videos, and apps. The smartphone is very similar to the iPhone 8 in appearance. For example, the device has a glass back, so you can now also charge the device wirelessly. The smaller size makes it easy to fit in your pocket. On the 4.7-inch screen, you can easily watch your favorite movies and series and send your messages. You can still unlock with Touch ID via the physical home button. In addition, you can take the most beautiful photos and 4K videos on the iPhone SE 2020 Black with the 12-megapixel camera with portrait mode.

    Fast, compact iPhone with a classic design

    Lucinda. Apple specialist. | 17 July 2020 | In the version: 64 GB | Black | No accessories | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Quick swipe, scroll and navigate
    • Fits in my pocket
    • Easy to operate with one hand
    • Only one camera
    • Outdated design

    Apple iPhone SE is a compact iPhone that fits easily in my pocket. This iPhone does look outdated in my opinion, due to the classic design.

    Classic, recognizable design
    From the outside you don't see that you have one of the latest iPhone models in your hands. I think the design of the Apple iPhone SE looks old-fashioned. The wide screen edges take some getting used to. Especially since my own iPhone 11 Pro has almost no screen edges. On the bottom edge of the screen I find a home button with Touch ID. Unlocking via fingerprint is always very nice to me. This way I also unlock the device when it's on the table and I don't have to bend it to have my face scanned.

    Compact size
    Apple iPhone SE has a small size. The device fits in the pocket of my jeans. I also easily hold it with one hand and operate the small screen with my thumb.

    Single camera
    I didn't expect much from the single camera on the back beforehand, but the quality of the photos positively surprised me. The photos have bright colors and I see many details. In addition, I take portrait photos of my friends. The background is blurred thanks to the bokeh effect. The quality isn't as good as its iPhone 11 series big brothers, but I'm very impressed. I do miss the night mode with this camera. In low ambient light, the photos are therefore poorly exposed. In addition, I miss the ultra-wide angle lens. For example, it's difficult to get the full picture of the sofa in my small living room with this single wide-angle lens.

    Small, bright screen
    The screen ratio is 16:9. That's the same ratio as most movies and series, so they fit seamlessly on the iPhone SE screen. In addition, I find the colors on the screen clear and natural. Still, I wouldn't grab the iPhone SE so quickly to watch a series. And that's because of the quality and size of the screen. With its 4.7 inch, I think it is too small to comfortably watch movies. In addition, the resolution is about 720 pixels, so I see pixels better than on my own device: Apple iPhone 11 Pro.

    Fantastic device for a relatively low price.

    Peter | 30 April 2020 | In the version: 128 GB | Black | No accessories | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Small format
    • Very good quality
    • Relatively cheap
    • Very fast thanks to A13 chip
    • Very good camera
    • Needless space below and above the screen (body could have been even smaller)
    • No AMOLED screen
    • No face unlock (I really like the home button by the way)
    • No fast charger included (purchase separately)

    I was looking for the smallest possible phone with the best possible quality. I definitely found that in this phone. The build quality is really fantastic. I think the screen is very nice for an LED screen. In addition, the device is very fast and it is fluent to operate. What I also found very important is the quality of the camera and I must say with the camera you take really beautiful pictures. And don't forget that you get updates from Apple for about five years. With Android, that's only a year or two. All in all, definitely recommended.

    • Better camera
    • Affordable
    • Fit is pocket

    Great iPhone and finally one that doesn't immediately cost a thousand euros new. Not too big, not too small. A camera that you can get along with, great battery and nice and fast. No more crashes, no more apps that don't work. If you go from a 6, 7 or 8, but are afraid of a laptop in your pocket, then this is a great device!

    The iPhone SE is very ordinary, yet fantastic.
    • Very fast thanks to the A13 Bionic
    • Long software support
    • Good stereo speakers
    • Handy size
    • Great camera with enough light
    • Better screens at the competition
    • Very large screen edges
    • Standard slow charger included
    • Poor camera performance in low light

    This iPhone is not intended for the aspiring photographer. Not even for those who watch more movies and series on a smartphone than a television. Or for people who like to show off the newest of the newest. If you play a lot of games on your smartphone (seriously?), I'd skip it too. This iPhone is intended for Android users who for whatever reason want to make the switch to iOS, or for owners of an iPhone 6(S)/7/8 who have really finished their smartphone, but would like the format want to keep. This new iPhone SE is similar in appearance to an iPhone 8, with the exception of the placement of the logo on the back. However, the interior has received the necessary upgrades.

    Yes, the screen is better than most competitors in this price segment. Yes, the screen edges are actually outdated. And yes, the slow included charger can be annoying. Still, this iPhone has a lot to offer. Thanks to the same chip as in the iPhone 11 (Pro), the A13 Bionic, this smartphone is lightning fast. The processor is even so overkill that this iPhone will feel fast for a long time to come. And that's a good thing, because Apple is known for its very long software support, which is unparalleled. Are you an Android user and are you completely fed up with the fact that your smartphone no longer receives updates after two years? This iPhone may be for you. Are you fed up with the ever-increasing size of Android smartphones and would you like to operate your pocket computer with one hand again and actually put it in your pocket? This iPhone is definitely for you. As long as you don't mind the relatively small screen, this iPhone can handle everything at a rapid pace.

    This is the iPhone for users who want a good smartphone for a reasonable price, without any fuss. The whole base is correct. There is nothing special or special about it. And that's what makes it so fantastic.

    Just do it especially if you are used to the previous SE.
    • The perfect size
    • Beautiful photos, especially portrait mode is wow
    • Super fast
    • What I use it for just the most ideal iphone
    • Transferring data is a piece of cake
    • 264 GB is a lot of money but worth it
    • Too bad the wireless charger is not included as standard.
    • Don't really have any cons yet

    Before I bought this I also had the SE and it was fine, but I couldn't get away with it with 16 GB of storage. What a nice device is the new SE. Right but the 264 GB version purchased me, they will no longer have in terms of storage! Ok I may not have the most advanced camera but still...
    Made pictures of the grandchildren with Ascension and the result is wow.
    The phone is super fast, never stutters and does what you want. I like the home button. Contactless payment is now very easy (sometimes a bit too easy) In short, I am very happy with it. Hope it lasts a long time.

    Super fine phone with ease of use at your fingertips.
    • Feels good in the hand
    • Beautiful pictures
    • Super upgrade from the old SE
    • Touch ID instead of Face ID
    • Splash-proof
    • Black borders at the top and bottom that reduce the screen size
    • No jack plug

    Top phone for its price. Does everything a nice fast smartphone should do at a budget price. The size is also just right for people who don't want a huge phone because it simply won't fit in a small hand. Very happy with this purchase!

    Best price/quality ratio at the moment
    • Apple Update Policy
    • Excellent performance
    • Great camera
    • Value for money
    • Battery life

    The iPhone SE 2020 is the first iPhone that I have purchased myself. I have regularly held several models of the iPhone in my hands, but never one of my own. Always with the same argument: the price. I am familiar with Apple's ECO system, both within iOS and MacOS, but I never took the step to an iPhone, especially because of the price.

    The iPhone SE 2020 has changed that. It is actually still above budget, but the approach now is to last longer, which in theory can make it just as expensive or even cheaper per year than Android alternatives in a lower price range. The update policy is still unmatched. The previous iPhone SE model of 4 years old runs on the latest version of iOS. That says a lot about how long a phone can last. Even compared to a device in the Android One program.

    I was able to make the transition from Android to iOS well. Some things work just a little differently, and you have to get used to that. Getting used to it goes quickly and I only had to look up something once how this had to be done with iOS compared to Android.

    In addition, I really love the photos of the phone. If I compare this with previous devices I've had, I can only say that you really shouldn't stare blindly at the mega pixels. Software and the CPU do a lot for photos. And that brings me straight to what makes this phone so good. With budget/midrange models you often notice after 2 years that the years also start to count in the speed. With high-end models this is less fast, which is mainly due to the CPU. The fact that this device has a top CPU is really a big plus.

    Only downside for me; the battery lasts longer than you would expect from such a small battery, but if you use the phone very intensively you probably won't make it through the day.

    TLDR;
    - Annual purchase costs are low
    - Perfect midrange budget with high end CPU
    - Top camera, don't stare blind at the mega pixels
    - Battery adequate, but could have been better

    Best price/quality for an iPhone.
    • Bigger screen than the previous iPhone SE
    • Better camera with portrait functions
    • Larger storage capacity
    • Committed to battery life
    • None found yet.

    Had the previous version of the SE. Battery ran out after 4 years. The new version has a larger screen and is more convenient.

    I am very satisfied with this mobile.

    Despite the 'low' price, the iPhone has a very good quality. Very satisfied!!!

    Top device if you want to switch from Android to Apple!
    • Fast
    • Price to quality ratio
    • design
    • Battery could be better (bigger)

    After having 4 Samsung phones (all after a year they start to get worse and the battery suddenly drops a lot) I had enough of buying a new phone every 1.5-2 years and I (finally) switched to Apple. Top experience so far, everything works smoothly and the transition from Android is super simple. I find an additional advantage that this device does not have a million wide-angle lenses and a screen that is too large for a football field, on the contrary to actually all modern devices. You do get a decent camera, normal screen, super fast processor and the apple ecosystem. I'm convinced so far, and I don't see myself switching to an Android anytime soon, especially if you consider the price of <600 euros. Recommended!
