Apple has invented a time machine and it took us back in the future by unveiling a 4-inch phone yesterday.And while the iPhone SE might look almost exactly like the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5, it features a vastly improved hardware. In fact, under the hood, the iPhone SE is as powerful as the iPhone 6s with the same Apple A9 system chip (that will feel even faster on the lower-res iPhone SE display) and a 12-megapixel iSight camera with Focus Pixels, 4K video recording and Live Photos support.There are two things missing, though: one that we've previously mentioned is 3D Touch. The other that we're learning about now is about Touch ID.The fingerprint recognition system is available on the iPhone SE, but it's not the latest and speediest generation that we know from the iPhone 6s, but instead it is the first-gen Touch ID sensor from the iPhone 5s. And that means it will be noticeably slower than that of the iPhone 6s and 6.This is a downside, but we would not say that it's a dealbreaker: … [Read more...] about Apple iPhone SE TouchID is the same as in 5s, slower than iPhone 6s fingerprint sensor
Touch 3d iphone se
It's been two days since Apple took the Cupertino City Hall for itself one last time to reveal the iPhone SE, iPad Pro 9.7-inch, and some Apple Watch goodies among other things like a gentle iPhone-dismantling robot and enough environment talk to last us through the next Ice Age. During that time, it became clear that the resurrected 4-incher is the first brand-new iPhone whose announcement didn't stir the kind of excitement usually associated with such faithful events. Surfing the waves of social media comments, tech media publications, and opinions among our acquaintances, we return to coast with a sum of their collective impression – the iPhone SE is not a big deal.How come? Apple is basically selling a $399 iPhone 6s in a smaller package! Yes, it doesn't have 3D Touch, the fingerprint scanner is merely 'fast' rather than 'wicked fast', and the 4-inch display is not for everyone. But still, this little monstrosity packs a mean punch for the moolah! It even comes in Rose Gold! … [Read more...] about Does the iPhone SE’s recycled design put you off, or you’re still hot about that 5s look?
Apple might unveil a new version of its 4-inch iPhone SE at the rumored March event. After earlier rumors that Apple will not bring a new SE this year, recently talk has emerged about a refresh to the smallest available iPhone, and the latest evidence to back it up is a clearance of iPhone SE inventory at U.S. retailer Target. This week, Target stores have received a memo to return many iPhone SE models back to Apple, and the affected models include unlocked 16 gig and 64 gig SEs in all four color options, as well as Sprint-bound SE phones.Clearing iPhone SE inventory might be due to slowing sales or many other reasons, but given the fact that it coincides closely with Apple's March event, it is likely more than just a regular clearance. Another Target employee confirmed that their store has not received new iPhone SE since the iPhone 7 series launch in late September.The rumor goes on to suggest that Apple might update the iPhone SE to match the storage options on other modern … [Read more...] about New iPhone SE 128GB might come at Apple’s March event

At $399 USD, or $580 Canadian. Then it's certainly not a cheap smartphone. There is much better priced devices that offer more than the SE. posted on 18 Jul 2017, 10:35 0 19.

PhoneCritic (Posts: 1206; Member since: 05 Oct 2011) Agree. It was a most beautiful design and was not beaten till the HTC M7 came along which was beaten, IMO, by the S6E which was destroyed by the S8 which, IMO, will be destroyed by the Note 8 … [Read more...] about Comments for : Did you love the iPhone SE?

Blitz question – can you name a smartphone that's both compact and powerful? The iPhone SE is probably what springs to mind for anyone who has been following the news. In a nutshell, it packs the potential of an iPhone 6s inside the body of an iPhone 5s. It is smaller and cheaper, yet equipped with the A9 system on chip and 12MP main camera of Apple's flagship handset. However, the obvious size and design differences aren't all that sets the two phones apart. The different price tags don't complete the list either. In fact, the more we compare the iPhone SE and iPhone 6s side by side, the more differences between the two we come across. Here are the small differences between the iPhone SE and iPhone 6s you might have missed. iPhone SE vs iPhone 6s: the differences you might have missed iPhone SE vs iPhone 6s: the differences you might have missed 1.
