Apple’s new iPhone SE hasn’t changed its looks, and most of the hardware is the same (or very similar) as before with improvement to the camera and battery life. The price has gone up a little, but it’s still a good deal if you want an affordable iPhone. The A15 chip is incredibly fast, and Apple’s new photo processing algorithms make a big difference in terms of image quality. Battery life is also excellent, easily outpacing my iPhone 11 Pro. And at $399, it’s a great value for an Apple device. If you’re looking for a powerful, yet affordable iPhone, the SE is definitely worth considering.
