iphone se 2020,
This year’s iPhone SE has the look of a six-year-old iPhone 8, but can last for years to come thanks to the brand new chip. In terms of functions, the phone does make some concessions compared to phones in the same price range.
Apple has changed the design of its iPhones a few times in recent years. The button with fingerprint scanner under the screen disappeared, so that the screen could fill the front of the device.
The edges were also made angular and the phones got two or three cameras on the back.
The iPhone SE has not kept up with the times in that regard. This third version of this ‘budget iPhone’ is very similar to the previous iPhone SE from 2020. It still has a button below the display and a single camera lens on the back.
With A15 Bionic chip, iPhone SE will last for years
On the inside, the new iPhone SE can compete with the most expensive iPhones currently on the market. The phone has a powerful A15 Bionic chip that can also be found in the iPhone 13 (Pro). With this you can run all the apps you want without any problems.
And more importantly: it ensures that you can probably use the phone for another five years. The new modem also makes the iPhone SE future-proof. The device now supports the new 5G networks.
The iPhone SE is small and thin and therefore very handy. The screen is also somewhat priegelig, with a size of 4.7 inches. It feels a bit outdated in 2022, because there are those thick edges around it.
You hardly see that on new phones in this price range. Despite that, it is an excellent screen, which has become a bit brighter. The maximum image refresh rate is still sixty images per second, where other devices offer a smoother-looking speed of up to 120 Hz.

Review: The iphone se 2020 looks outdated, but is ready for the future
One camera without night mode
One camera lens is placed on the back of the iPhone SE. It’s the same hardware as in the previous iPhone SE, but this older system usually still takes great photos.
That is also because Apple has made adjustments in the software area. For example, this iPhone uses Deep Fusion technology to capture more details in less-lit environments.
It is a pity that the iPhone SE does not support night mode. You might expect that function, given the computing power of the A15 Bionic. Due to the lack of this mode, photos in low light remain very dark.
We also miss a bit of a wide-angle lens and a zoom lens on the phone, which are present on many Android devices in that price range.
And then the battery. That was a weak spot in the previous iPhone SE. People who spend a lot of time on social media, watched videos and used navigation saw the battery drain quickly.
This time the battery lasts a little longer, but again we didn’t make it to the end of the day. You can now expect a bit more for a device of 530 euros.
Still, for a review we need to put this phone in perspective. The iPhone SE is for the light user who occasionally uses the internet, sometimes reads and occasionally uses social media.
Thanks to the chip, you can use the latest apps and the heaviest games without any problems, but the A15 Bionic seems primarily intended to extend the life of the phone.
Most people who choose an iPhone SE will move from an older iPhone or an earlier version of the SE. All the bells and whistles that can be found on new iPhones are therefore not a loss for them.
While it’s a shame Apple hasn’t updated the phone’s design, this will give buyers years ahead. This makes the iPhone SE a very affordable iPhone for anyone who is satisfied with the basics.
