Processor: Apple’s A13 Bionic Chip which is used in Apple’s latest flagship phone iPhone 11 

A13 Bionic Chip gives a better experience to gaming lovers as well as to daily users with amazing speed and smoothness.

Design: It’s the same design which apple used in its old model iPhone 8

it comes in 138.4 x 67.3 x 7.3 mm; 148g which is a super slim and weightless smartphone in the current smartphone market

Display: It’s a true tone Retina HD display 4.7in (1334×750 at 326 PPI) 625 nits which give crispy and vibrant colours to users

Ram & Rom: It comes with a 3GB ram and 64/128/256Gb ROM variant. RAM doesn’t play a big role as apple’s OS used here

Sim: It’s a dual sim phone with a physical sim and e Sim 

Camera: It comes with a single front camera 7Mp (f/2.2) with portrait mode enabled which is used in iPhone XR

Rear camera 12Mp (f/1.8) with portrait and 4K 60fps and it gives same quality photos as iPhone 11 pro max in daylight

Video quality also perfect in iPhone SE 2020 and it gives a better 4K video recording feature with a budget price

Bring HDR balanced image with A13 Chip

Sound: Its louder than the old iPhone and give clear and sharp audio experience 

Touch id 2nd Generation: Apple used it touch id feature with new updates and bring its 2nd generation which gives faster unlocking than older iPhones with touch id

COVID 19 time with mask apple’s face id having an issue but this touch id feature being worthy to users.

Os Support: As A13 Bionic Chip included it will support at least 4 years of software support from Apple. 

Extra feature: IP67 water and dust resistance

Same back glass finish which used in iPhone XR 

As Apple brings these attractive features in a budget iPhone they also have some cons related to this product.

Let’s look around the cons in iPhone SE 2020

iPhone SE 2020 Spec Cons

Battery: This is a big problem in iPhone Se 2020 because it comes with same battery capacity sed in iPhone 8 ( 1,821-mAh battery)

With A13 Bionic Chip it won’t last for a day usage 

Apple provides 5W charging adaptor and it won’t give you the fast charging option

Usually, apple battery percentage gets down by 10% per year so as expected for a 4-year use this battery won’t support.

Processor: Even though iPhone SE 2020 come with same iPhone 11 A13 Bionic Chip but it doesn’t have it all features as Ultra-wideband chip is missing 

Ultra-wideband chip which enables Airtags which is going to release soon by apple 

Display: It’s not full HD display its just 720p HD display and buzzle around the display is bigger than usual but it’s not a big deal.

Camera: Unlikely other iPhones with A13 Bionic chip iPhone SE 2020 doesn’t have Night mode and Auto adjustment. It causes poor photo experience in the night shoot.

Likely in iPhone XR portrait mode doesn’t support other than faces so you can take a portrait with objects. 

FaceID: Apple’s latest security feature missing in this iPhone Se 2020 and instead of it they used touch id 2nd generation.

Common Issues: No headphone jack available, a single camera with limited features, no dual physical sim.

Should you buy the iPhone SE 2020?

Now you know most of the features of iPhone SE 2020 and I think as a budget phone is going to sell well in the market.

who should consider buying it? 

If you owning an iPhone X, Xs, Xs Max, Xr, 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max you never want to consider it.

If you are using iPhone 8, 7,6s, 6, or older iPhone and looking for an upgrade and then this phone is strongly recommended for you.

As mentioned older device users can upgrade it because with a reasonable amount you can own an iPhone which can support for 3/4 years more.
