Apple iPhone SE

Apple’s first affordable iPhone.

At the precise time OnePlus was blowing us away with the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro, and right about the time news of the Pixel 4a was emerging, Apple remembered that mid-range phones are a thing, and reminded us just what it can do with devices that don’t cost the Earth. No wheels have been reinvented: The Cupertino wizards have simply taken the 2017 iPhone 8 body and crammed it as the previous SE, which squashed itself into an iPhone 5 shell. But oh, what a selection of components. There’s a generous HDR10-capable 4.7” Retina display, complete with Touch ID security on the home button and a glass – not plastic – case rear. Wireless charging has made it in, along with fast charging to get you up to 50% battery in only 30 minutes. There’s WiFi 6, too – though no 5G quite yet. The core package is where this shines the most. Apple may have looked back in time for the case, but it’s pulled the A13 Bionic processor right out of today’s kit, giving the iPhone SE a tremendous amount of power for its size. As for the camera, it uses a 12 MP, ƒ/1.8 sensor, which Apple boldly claims is ‘the best single-camera system ever in an iPhone’. Yes, it doesn’t look spectacular. It looks like an iPhone 8 from 2017. But if power, performance and longevity are higher on your list than thin bezels, this is an absolutely amazing little phone.

Apple knows what it’s doing with LCD displays. The 326 ppi Retina HD
display in the iPhone SE is pretty damn colourful, and it can display
HDR10 and Dolby Vision content as it was meant to be seen.
