Apple's latest smartphone from their bandwagon is the iPhone SE, and it's sleek to say the least. Sporting a 4-inch screen, the iPhone SE is reminiscent of the iPhone 5S because it is exactly the same phone. With flagship internals, though.
The iPhone SE has launched in India this week with a hefty price tags of Rs. 39,000 for the 16GB variant and Rs. 49,000 for the 64GB model. It is Apple's 'desperate' attempt at regaining the loyal audience it lost with their shift towards bigger screens in 2014.
If you are in the market looking for a compact smartphone, here are the top 7 reasons to pick up the iPhone SE.
Compact and Sleek
With just 4 inches of that Retina Display, the iPhone SE is definitely compact, compared with the flagships of today that average atleast a 5-inch screen. It is small even by Apple's 2016 standards where the latest iPhone 6S even has a 4.7-inch display. The iPhone SE's small 4-inch screen makes it easy for pretty much anyone with any palm size to reach every part of the screen.
Ergonomic and easy to handle
With the iPhone 5's diminutive form factor, the iPhone SE is a breeze to handle when it comes to excessive usage. You can easily put the SE in your pockets without any discomfort and it doesn't even stick out oddly. If you have had trouble managing the bigger iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, this should be your next smartphone purchase, undoubtedly.
Light as a feather
With that all-metal body, you'd expect the iPhone SE to weigh on the heavier side. On the contrary, it is actually 30 grams lighter than the iPhone 6 and 6S. In smartphone terms, that is a huge difference and makes one-hand prolonged usage a breeze. It's all the more easier to carry around in your pockets and backpacks. Putting a case on it won't be that tough a decision now.
Fast and powerful
Though the SE borrows design elements from the 2013 iPhone 5S, it is much more powerful and smoother. Sporting the latest Apple A9 chipset along with 2GB of RAM, it is on par with the bigger Android and iOS flagships of 2015 as well as 2016. The best thing you can say about the iPhone SE is that it is the world's most powerful 4-inch smartphone.
Looks that kill
The iPhone SE brings back the trademark Apple classy look. With chamfered metal edges that give the iPhone a formal and neat look is finally back. If you have been a fan of this edge-to-edge form factor and didn't buy the iPhone 6 due to the same reason, this is your chance to experience flagship specifications with the design you love.
It's in Rose Gold
Taking on some features from its big brother-the iPhone 6S-this new iPhone SE also takes on the newest color variant, Rose Gold. With a copperish pink tint, the Rose Gold oozes of royalty and class. Not just limited to the ladies, this new color even dazzles the dudes. It's like what they say, you can't go wrong with some pink in your wardrobe.
A superb camera
Apple iPhone SE has the new 12MP camera on the rear, which has Live Photos as well. Now, relive your photos by default recording 3 seconds before and after the shot. You can now also record 4k videos with this 4-inch iPhone. That means beautiful captures of your trips and ensures that your Snapchat game is on point.
