iPhone SE Review – in 2018! Two Years Later!

by birtanpublished on November 1, 2020

Hey guys what is going on this is AI apple geek the iPhone se has turned two years old as you know when a smartphone turns 2 it's considered old obsolete unusable you should not buy this but in this video I want to take another final look at the iPhone se to see it at the end of its lifecycle and to see is it still worth buying in 2018 let's get started alright so just quickly before we begin I'm not gonna be talking about specs in this video so if you're not familiar with this device you don't know what it is in other words if you're looking for numbers benchmarks things like that I won't be talking about it in

This video if you're interested in that please go check out my other reviews that I made over the years I'll put them up top in the cards as well as down below in the description but with that out of the way let's jump right into the video all right so the first thing you really want to consider with this device is its size size is everything on this phone in my experience it's very easy to hold to use squared corners make it easy to grip that's where the display itself the resolution doesn't really matter how to display the size everything looks good although it's not mind-blowing

There's no forced touch or other advanced tech in the display but it does work very well this is actually one of the issues I have on my iPhone 10 with not being able to reach parts of the display and this really does translate to day to day use how convenient it is for you to put it in and out of your pocket and the fact that you can add a OtterBox or other sort of strong case without making the phone feel huge but if you're looking for a phone just for media consumption YouTube Netflix things like that then yeah I wouldn't recommend a phone of this size now let's talk

About general usability and like I said earlier I'm not gonna get into like benchmarks or anything like that I will say though that this device is fast enough to handle all daily asks it's really hard to find something that this phone doesn't handle well you're not really gonna be waiting for things to load but it isn't as snappy as the newer phones and that's just a given things are smooth even intense games load well just with the more intense things don't expect good battery life I honestly wouldn't be worried about the performance on the device iOS 12 is

Coming later this year that's going to improve performance across the board so if you're worried about speed I wouldn't be and it seems like Apple's gonna be supporting this device for at least an extra year so that's always a plus all right so I want to quickly talk about the camera the camera is good enough it's still solid there are no fancy features like optical zoom or portrait mode things like that but if you know how to take pictures this can still dish them out very well it's the same camera as the iPhone 6s so it still shoots 4k it has live photos which by itself to me

Is already very impressive and with this computer you can kind of get an estimation of the quality this is how far I am away from the Ducks but it's still getting a fairly usable image out of this little tiny camera here we have the iPhone se on your left and the iPhone 10 on your right you can see that in some of the images the iPhone 10 is a lot more contrasty and if you zoom up closer is a little bit more quality but personally I think these images come pretty close for what they are keep in mind that this is a $300 iPhone se versus $1,000 iPhone 10

meets Timmy the adapter you won't need him with the iPhone se because Jack still works just fine now let's talk about battery life this is something very important to a lot of you guys out there on a good day I can get at least four or five hours of on screen time which is about the same as the 6s seven sometimes even the eight depending on what you do it's definitely doable just not spectacular like the plus size iPhones or the iPhone 10 I think the real concern here with battery is throttling

You may have heard that apple's throttling their older devices and the iPhone se is one of those devices and you may be thinking that hey this device is being slowed down by Apple intentionally so I shouldn't buy it well let me convince you otherwise first of all if you're buying this device new your battery's gonna be new so you're not gonna be throttled anyway if you're buying it used and you are being throttled you can just take it into Apple 30 bucks battery replacement problem solved and if you're still worried iOS 11 point three and above

Have the battery health program built in that way you can actually turn off throttling if you choose to do so so it's not a big deal alright so my final opinion after two years with this device is that okay the iPhone se is a strange device it's old it's small it doesn't have cutting-edge tech but it's still a good device I think for most people it will push through day to day activities just fine as for whether or not you should buy one though I'm gonna have to say meh this time around if you're looking for a phone that looks and feels a new but isn't a dramatic change like

The iPhone 10 I would definitely recommend something like the iPhone 8 or if price is a big deal the iPhone 7 and 6s will still do just fine but if you really don't care about having new features or having the fastest phone you just want something that works and you don't want a huge phone the iPhone se is still gonna work well for you anyways guys I hope this video helped you if you still need to make a decision on this device please check out some of my other reviews I've made before if you liked this video tell your friends if you didn't don't tell anybody don't forget
