Apple iPhone SE (3rd Gen) review : Specification , Design , Price

Apple, based in Cupertino, unveiled the new iPhone SE (3rd Gen) earlier this year, and it arrived in Indian stores in mid-March.
The Apple iPhone SE (3rd Gen) is available in three storage capacities: 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB, with prices starting at Rs 43,900, Rs 48,900, and Rs 58,900, respectively.


It’s no surprise that the new iPhone SE 2022 series looks identical to its predecessor, which is based on the iPhone 6 (& 6S) series from 2014. It does, however, include Apple’s most powerful mobile chipset, the A15 Bionic, which is also found in the iPhone 13 and 13 Pro versions.


Does it meet your expectations? Let’s have a look.

iPhone SE Design, build quality and display

As previously said, distinguishing the new iPhone SE from its predecessor in terms of appearance will be challenging.

It boasts a small and compact design form factor with curved corners, thick bezels, and the signature touch ID at the base, as shown in the slide show above. However, the similarities end there, since the 3rd generation model is superior in every way.

The device is made of environmentally safe materials and is more durable than ever before. Recycled materials are used in several of the major components. 100% recyclable rare earth materials, tungsten in the Taptic Engine, and audio magnets

iPhone SE Performance

The Apple iPhone SE (3rd Gen) is powered by an A15 Bionic chipset, as previously stated. It has a strong 6-core CPU with two high-performance cores. With four high-efficiency cores, making it the fastest CPU in a smartphone. In addition, the Neural Engine’s 16 cores can perform 15.8 trillion operations per second. This will allow third-party applications to do machine learning computations faster than ever before.

Opening and switching between apps, loading and managing the camera, and other day-to-day tasks are all made easy. Furthermore, the phone supports all games, not just those found on the Apple Store. Also those found on Apple Arcade, such as Gear.Club Stradale and others.

I must say that toggling between apps with the home button, which was so natural when I had an iPhone 6, now feels strange. It will take some time for people who are used to the full view touch screen on iPhone X and newer models, or even those on Android phones, to adjust to the user interface, but the iPhone SE (3rd Gen) will serve you well.

iPhone SE New Touch ID

Although Face ID has been available on all of Apple’s newest phones for a couple of years, the new iPhone SE 2020 unlocks with a Touch ID sensor beneath the display. This sensor can also be used to authorize App Store downloads, Apple Pay, and password entry.

The Touch ID/home button combination worked as expected, and you can pick how much haptic feedback you want when you press down. The Touch ID button is especially useful right now, when many people are required to wear face masks in public. Without removing your mask, you can still simply unlock your iPhone SE. Masks prevent Face ID from working.

Reasons to buy the iPhone SE

  • A13 Bionic processor: The A13 chip in the phone is the fastest and provides seamless performance.
  • Solid cameras: That A13 chip also boosts the photography powers of the iPhone SE.
  • Premium design: While a lot of premium phones have plastic designs, the iPhone SE is made of glass and metal.
  • IP67 water resistant. 
  • Bright and colorful display: It’s not full HD, but the 4.7-inch Retina Display on the iPhone. SE is easy to see outdoors and provides a vibrant picture.
  • Easy to use with one hand: Fans of small phones will appreciate how compact the iPhone SE is. And the Touch ID button lets you easily unlock the device.
