iPhone SE Gets Taken For The Ride Of Its Life – Can It Survive Though? Let Us Find Out

Tech Rax got its hands on the 4-inch powerhouse, and gets taken through the bend test. As an added bonus for you guys, we are also going to place the bend test video over here so for those who have not seen the previous test can see it right here. In terms of performance, iPhone SE is every bit as powerful as its larger screen counterparts, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, thanks to its A9 SoC. Additionally, another perk of owning the smartphone is its rear camera sensor, which features a 12MP shooter that is able to capture 4K effortlessly.

It also sports a much better battery timing as opposed to iPhone 6s, as you will see when you read the total amount of hours you can rake from each device from the table. This will also depend on the kind of activity you are carrying out.

Another feature that the company has incorporated is allowing you to take a selfie with better image quality and reduced noise. How? When taking a selfie, the iPhone’s screen’s becomes three times brighter than its original state, allowing you to snap an accurate image, and not worry about quality loss. In our opinion, this is actually more effective than placing an LED flash, because on numerous occasions, the processed image will end up becoming brighter than what you were originally hoping for.

Coming to the connectivity side of things, iPhone SE features an 802.11ac wireless adapter, making it three times faster than its predecessor, iPhone 5s. In addition, Apple has also placed a nifty feature called Wi-Fi calling, and for additional flexibility, there is also an NFC chip that will come in handy when using Apple Pay for contactless payments. Touch ID is present in the home button, and there is also a Bluetooth 4.2 module present.

Coming to one of the most important segments of iPhone SE, its price tag. iPhone SE comes with a $399 price for the 16GB model and $499 for the 64GB version, making it the most affordable, not to mention the most powerful 4 inch smartphone the tech giant has ever released. Additionally, you can choose to opt for a 24 monthly installment plan, which will allow you to pay $17 a month, which is a great solution for those who are unable to remove $399 immediately from their balance.
