iPhone SE 5G Design and Screen
Following the launch of the newest iPhone on the block, everyone was eager to know what design and screen Apple developers had come up with this time. The new iPhone SE follows a similar design and screen as the iPhone 8, only more reliable, versatile and impressive than ever - FYI the return of the deeply missed home button is back!. The device has a retina HD 4.7” screen, great if you prefer your device to comfortably slip into your pocket or bag. You may panic when accidents like spills and drops happen to your precious phone, however, the iPhone SE simply shrugs this off thanks to its incredible splash, water and dust resistance properties (rated IP67) - a phone made to last.
Despite iPhone SE’s 5G smaller screen size, the device is still great for all your entertainment needs. The screen is tactically coated in a fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating, putting a stop to all the annoying smudges your screen might develop over time. A wide colour display (P3), a true tone display and haptic touch are also cool features the iPhone SE 5G has to offer, features which work seamlessly together to give users an immersive, thrilling and vivid display whilst using the device - all your favourite games, TV show and pictures bought to life. Also, like the majority of Apple devices, the iPhone SE 5G has a Touch ID fingerprint sensor, giving you instant access to your device, just when you need it.
Apple always goes big when it comes to the design of its products, and the iPhone SE 5G is no different. The budget-friendly device is available in a total of 3 flawless colour options: Midnight, Starlight and Red. The ‘Midnight’ option being the darkest colour out of the three is the most classic - but classic when it comes to Apple doesn’t mean boring. Midnight provides a deep and luminous look to the iPhone SE 5G. The second colour variant ‘Starlight’, resembles a colour close to white and is a great option if you prefer your device to have a fresher, more youthful look. The last colour option ‘Red’ is the boldest colour up for grabs on the iPhone SE 5G - who doesn’t love their handset to stand out a bit?.
iPhone SE 5G Camera
The iPhone SE 5G camera is simple but effective. The device features a single rear 12MP wide lens, with digital zoom up to 5x - great if you want to snap a picture of something that is too far away. If you love to take high-quality solo shots of your friends and family, the device also has a portrait mode with advanced bokeh and Depth control - giving you top-quality detailed photos at a touch of a button. If that didn't impress you enough, portrait lighting with 6 different effects (Natural, Studio, Contour, Stage, Mono and High-Key Light Mono) are also available on the device.
The days of unfocused photos are over. Apple always wants the best for its users. The iPhone SE 5G camera has both auto optical image stabilisation and smart HDR 4. Both of these features are a powerful duo that automatically refines contrast lighting and skin tones whilst providing crystal clear images. If you’re a bit of a self-proclaimed videographer, the device also has 4K video recording at 1080p HD. This is a camera that is definitely going to get your Instagram content looking better than ever!
You might be asking yourself, what about the selfie camera? The iPhone SE 5G has a 7MP front-facing camera, again with a crystal clear portrait mode with advanced depth control, and 1080p HD video recording. The iPhone SE with its wide colour capture for both standard photos and live photos will always pick up all the beautiful shades and tones within your shot.
iPhone SE 5G Features and Performance
Apple knows its stuff when it comes to processing chips. The iPhone SE 5G has an A15 Bionic chip, which is the same swanky chip that's in the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro - this budget-friendly iPhone is keeping up with the big dogs. The chip has full access to the capability of iOS15 and enhances everything you do on your device from loading apps to capturing pictures.
If the iPhone SE 5G is already sounding impressive, wait until you hear about the long-lasting lithium-ion battery. The device will allow up to 15 hours of video playback, up to 50 hours of audio playback (great if you’re a person who can't live without music), and up to 10 hours of streamed video playback (wonderful if you’re a film and series addict). The iPhone SE is also fast-charging compatible, you can get a 50% charge within the short space of 30 minutes (20W wired). A saviour in moments where you’re in a rush and you need your device charged quickly. If you’re an owner of Apple’s famous MagSafe wireless charging pad you’ll be glad to hear, the iPhone SE 5G is indeed compatible.
We all have different needs when it comes to our phone memory and Apple has always provided lots of memory options when it comes to their devices. The iPhone SE 5G is available in 3 different memory capacities: 64GB, 128GB and 256GB (all capacities come with 3GB RAM). If you’re a photo hoarder perhaps aim for a higher capacity, on the other hand, if you like to keep the content stored on your device to a minimum, why not opt for a lower memory capacity?
5G is the future. Whether you’re multiplayer gaming, browsing the internet or video sharing, 5G will always get the ball rolling and speed things up. This progressive feature as you’ve probably assumed is a part of the iPhone SE too. When you’re on the go, 5G will even make video features like facetime feel smoother and more seamless than ever. In the moments where you need to save on battery, the iPhone SE will automatically shift into Smart Data mode - this is a reliable device that will always have you covered.
