Whats In The Box

iPhone SE
Charger
Earphones

The iPhone SE is a 4 inch smartphone designed by Apple for people who want an iPhone but not a massive screen like the latest iPhone series. It is also relatively cheaper than the iPhone 7. It is the hardware of the iPhone 6S but in the shell of the smaller iPhone 5S.

The IPhone

It is being marketed as the most powerful 4 inch phone around which is quite correct as the interface is smooth & very quick. It has the A9 chip that they used in the iPhone 6S so as powerful as its bigger brother. A very pleasing addition for me was the addition of a 12mp camera which with a small phone you wouldn't expect that. You also have the same features of the iPhone 6S such as Live Photos.

The phone is made from a specially crafted aluminium which makes it sturdy but light in your hands. It also comes with Apples now standard Retina Display which looks very nice.

Camera

The iPhone SE camera is 12mp which is very crisp & clearit is a marked improvement on the camera in the iPhone 6. A new addition is Live Photo, you can see the Image move on your screen just before & after you have taken your photo. It is a work in progress but a good new feature. These next photos are taken by the IPhone SE.

Touch ID

You have the ability to have your fingerprint installed like the latest iPhones. You can also use the system to use on apps like instead of passwords etc.

IOS 10

In September Apple released iOS 10 to the public with new features but the same design we have had for the past 4 years which was a slight letdown. Messages has many new things & a new layout which is very welcome & looks easier.

Call Quality

The sound is very clear & perfect volume, no noise or muffled voices.

I really like this phone, yes it maybe smaller but bigger is not always better as the iPhone SE has proved.

Pros

Clear screen
Good call quality
Perfect size
Easy to use
Cheaper

Cons

Small, if you are wanting something else then try the iPhone 6S or iPhone 7

Nice one stu, the phone looks good for those that want the power but also want to keep the smaller form factor.
Looks excellent.
