Apple’s third-generation iPhone SE is a small yet powerful phone with plenty of processing power, but its battery life leaves much to be desired; roughly 17 hours of video playback and 13 hours of streaming video streaming playback is what users can expect from this model.
It also supports fast charging, enabling you to reach 50 percent in just 30 minutes.
It has a 4.7-inch screen
The iPhone SE is a compact phone with a large display and beautiful design, featuring a powerful processor and 12-megapixel camera. However, its battery can quickly deplete if used for gaming or watching movies; its 1800+mAh capacity does not support full day usage.
This third-generation iPhone SE takes Apple’s classic vintage design and makes some key upgrades, making it a great option for anyone wanting an iPhone without breaking their budget. Featuring a 4.7-inch display and the fast A13 bionic chip found on iPhone XS and 11 Pro Max phones at a significantly reduced cost.
The Apple A13 chip is significantly faster than any Android processor and also one of the most power-efficient mobile chips available, capable of charging to 50% in 30 minutes with a 20W power adapter and supporting wireless charging – though without MagSafe support – for convenience in one hand use.
Our tests demonstrated that the iPhone SE lasted 14 hours of video playback, 10 hours of streaming video playback and 55 hours with audio playback – comparable to its previous model which lasted 15 hours with video playback and 13 with streaming video playback. By comparison, both the 11 Pro and Max lasted only 12:24.
Apple added power-saving features to this model that will extend battery life and help it last longer between charges. Their True Tone display automatically adjusts according to ambient lighting, helping improve battery life by decreasing energy needed to light up its display – an extra small change that makes a significant impactful difference when used regularly.
The iPhone SE features a 4.7-inch color display and 64GB internal storage, offering all the same connectivity options found on other iPhone models such as Bluetooth 5.0 and NFC with reader mode. Furthermore, this smartphone boasts only one front-facing camera – standard fare for smartphones today.
It has a 12-megapixel camera
For users seeking an iPhone that’s simple to use and offers great photos, the iPhone SE could be an ideal solution. Lightweight yet comfortable to hold, with an exceptional A13 Bionic chip running most apps that you need – plus a large battery for all-day usage – this phone makes a fantastic upgrade for existing iPhone owners or offers Android fans who wish to try Apple’s iOS platform but are intimidated by flagship prices.
The iPhone SE features a 12MP rear-facing and 7MP front-facing camera, similar to those found on other smartphones like iPhone XR which boast excellent cameras. Unfortunately, though, its lack of wide-angle or telephoto lens limits your shooting options.
Though not a flagship phone, the iPhone SE delivers on most fronts when it comes to photography and videography. Unfortunately, without night mode support available to it, images produced during dim conditions do not yield very sharp images; although noise reduction in low-light videos was improved significantly.
Notably, the iPhone SE features a smaller display than its flagship counterparts. Though its 4.7-inch screen isn’t terrible for phone usage, sometimes reading text may prove challenging in certain circumstances – however you can increase font size on your handset to make text easier to comprehend.
As is to be expected from a device with an A13 Bionic processor, the new iPhone SE offers excellent battery life. It can last for 17 hours of video playback, 13 hours of streaming media playback, and 55 hours of music playback – slightly less than Google Pixel 5a which features larger display and battery but is still impressive for an iPhone device. Plus, with storage capacities including 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB models to choose from.
It has a 5-megapixel front-facing camera
Apple’s latest iPhone SE packs in an A15 Bionic chip from iPhone 13, 5G connectivity and an upgraded rear camera – but also has a smaller battery than its predecessor – meaning streaming video and audio may last longer; however, heavy use could drain much quicker – perhaps enough time for one full workday before needing charging again!
The iPhone SE’s rear camera boasts a 12MP imaging sensor with an f/1.8 aperture, making a substantial upgrade over its 2016 predecessor’s 8MP sensor and offering the same image quality as on other iPhone models. Alongside high resolution images, PDAF autofocus and optical image stabilization are included, supporting up to 1080p HD video recording as well as slow motion video. Furthermore, Portrait mode and Depth Control employ machine learning technology for creating a bokeh effect without dual camera systems.
Portrait photos captured with Apple’s older phones often have a more natural, yet softened aesthetic compared to those captured with iPhone XS or XR, likely due to a lack of depth sensor or telephoto lens that results in less-sharp backgrounds and shallower bokeh effects. Apple does an admirable job of controlling artifacts and noise.
Full HD video capture looks very satisfying, with accurate colors and detailed images. Exposure holds up well in high contrast situations while A15 processor enables advanced processing for improved details in medium to low light conditions. Unfortunately though, unlike most phones from 2022 it lacks a night mode which could have made all the difference when shooting videos in dark conditions.
One of the key drawbacks of the iPhone SE is its small display. Equipped with a 4.7-inch, 750×1334 LCD panel, its display is noticeably smaller than most competing smartphones’ displays and lacks OLED’s pop and punchiness; reading text may be difficult while scrolling seems choppy at times.
It has a 3000mAh battery
The iPhone SE may feature a smaller battery compared to most Apple phones, but its performance remains admirable. It can last approximately 13 hours of video playback and 50 hours of audio playback before needing charging – up to 50% can be achieved within 30 minutes using a 20W charger.
The iPhone SE is also the smallest phone to feature MagSafe power delivery, enabling users to easily connect external displays and keyboards using this feature. Apple also implemented a new dual-band Wi-Fi modem for faster performance on slower networks as well as improved camera software with low light capabilities for optimal use of this phone.
This iPhone SE model, released for the third generation, is intended to meet the needs of people seeking an affordable iPhone without compromising on features or technology. The new model boasts a larger display, faster processor, longer battery life and has some minor design modifications while maintaining its classic look.
Although small in size, the iPhone SE remains an impressive device. Its small form factor and highly efficient chip allow it to punch well above its weight class; Apple’s A13 Bionic chip outpaces any Android competitor in terms of speed while using less energy – both factors making this phone more affordable and reliable in the long run.
Battery life on the iPhone SE surpasses that of its predecessor, though not as well as on its flagship cousin: iPhone 11. The regular iPhone 11 boasts a 3,110 mAh battery which allowed us to run our web browsing test over 5G for 10 hours 24 minutes; in comparison, its smaller 4.7-inch display requires 2,821 mAh instead.
The iPhone SE 3 does not feature a headphone jack, but still supports wireless audio streaming and Bluetooth headphones, along with fast charging via a 20W power adapter or higher – this makes charging significantly faster than before! According to Apple’s claims, charging from 0% to 50% takes 30 minutes with their 20W adapter compared with around an hour for previous models.
