It's easy to dismiss the iPhone SE as old wine in a new bottle. Actually, scratch that. Considering it has internals similar to the iPhone 6s and a design that's identical to the iPhone 5s, the iPhone SE is technically "old wine in an older bottle". And while it's true that the iPhone SE does not bring any pathbreaking technical innovations, it does represent a shift in strategy from the Cupertino-based company.

  • Performance Rocket
    Michael Barbas (Jul 29, 2018) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    I use this phone for exactly 1 year. No lags whatsoever. iOS 9.3 works perfectly well with the A9 chip with 64 bit architecture and embedded M9 motion co processor. Recently I upgraded to iOS 11, no lags whatsoever, perfect performance. The battery works well, it will never let you done, performs as per specifications. 12 Megapixels camera gives you fantastic quality photos. Apple has indeed made the miracle with this 4 inch small phone. If you do not mind its small screen and selfie camera which is only 1.2 megapixels, this phone is supreme in performance, it will never let you down no matter how many multitasks you are doing, forget about any other phone and go buy it. Only, I would suggest take the 64GB memory.

  • Iphone 6s in Body o Iphone 5s
    Dhaval Sheladia (Aug 2, 2016) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    i Think Gadgets 360 give very low rating in camera. Because iphone 6s, 6s Plus & iphone SE have same Rear Camera. Why iphone SE doesn't like ? iphone se have same A9 Chip & 2Gb Ram and More battery Compare to 6s in Usage. After Usage 5 Months It is Fastest Phone Than iphone 6s. I have used both iphone 6s and iphone SE. only Drawback iphone SE front Camera and 4 Inch. Nothing Else.But 1.2 Megapixel in Apple is Lot Better Than Android...

  • Which Model is more appropriate in India for 4G?
    Siddhartha Dutta (Jun 12, 2016) on Gadgets 360
    iPhones in the US are sold in the USA in two different models, namely A1662 and A1723. They differ in the bands they support. Could someone tell me which model is more suitable in the Indian context to support 4G services offered by major telecom like Airtel or Vodafone?

  • iPhone SE - Affordable in India?
    Seo Wiz (Apr 12, 2016) on Gadgets 360
    iPhone SE pitched as the most affordable iPhone, not so in India. Better options in Android and from Samsung, Lava, Micromax and ofcourse Xiaomi

  • 4 inch rocket in your pocket
    Đj Sankalp (Oct 4, 2017) on Gadgets 360
    The best 4 inch phone from Apple after the iPhone 5s series works great without any lag issues feels like holding a 2016 rocket inside our packet even though has an A9 processor honest to say that it does not feel slow at all. Intact faster than the OP5 iOS 10.3.3 was the best ever software for this phone although iOS 11 is great. Rear camera is awesome it is one of the best camera from Apple while the front camera has only 1.2 mega pixels with f 2.4 aperture it doesn€™t seem so bad the selfies taken are great. Only thing bothering this 4 inch device is its speakers not dull but not too soundy. Game load times are great and iPhone se still plays games without any lag. To be honest this phone is perfect for iPhone beginners. Overall review of this phone is a good small phone with a mini rockets performance inside it with all the other stuff is excellent including camera, quality of the body of the phone

  • Cant Share Mobile data
    Sundaresan Natarajan (Nov 26, 2017) on Gadgets 360
    iPhone SE does not provide wifi hotspot feature.So we cant share mobile data or 4g/3g internet with other devices like laptop.However outside wifi internet can be used by iPhone SE for browsing.So buyers beware of SE.

  • All of Apple at affordable price
    Flipkart Customer (Jun 5, 2019) on Flipkart
    This is the latest update for iPhone SE series with 16GB and 64GB scaling up to 32 and 128GB respectively. The phone has hardware of iPhone 6S with latest IOS version. It also offers great battery life and amazing primary camera. If you don't particularly require a big screen or prefer medium screen sizes with powerful performance, this is the phone to go with. Thanks flipkart and the seller for making it available with great discount and delivering within a day!
