2020 will be itched in the memories of everybody in the world for reasons that we pray never recurs.But for those smartphone lovers, who have always craved for an iphone without being able to afford one,there is a good news.Now you can get an iphone for 399$(Rs.42,500).Yes you heard,oops,read it right an iphone at an affordable price,the iPhoneSE2020.
The SE is in the body of iPhone8 the only difference in looks being the Apple logo is right at the centre of its back going with the new Apple trend.The display is 4.7″ RETINA HD with resolution of 1334x750pixels at 326ppi .The fingerprint sensor is built into the home button right below the display.
The display may not look great on paper but the gesture based touch of any iPhone is an excellent experience and once you have used it its very difficult to get out of it.
OS AND PROCESSOR
Critics may point out that such a small display with big bezels are outdated but an iPhone is an iPhone.Firstly the Apple logo is enough for many and secondly Apple has not cut out on other specs.iPhoneSE2020 runs on iOS 13 the latest version and comes with A13 bionic chipset,the same as in the iPhone11 and 11Pro Max thereby the speed being at par with the flagship models.Also this is the best SoC available.
The A13 or better said the iPhone’s chipset is actually the benchmark in smartphone market.Any benchmark tests for example the Antutu test also proves the statement.This fact actually makes the price of the SE 2020 look incredible.
The phone is splash,water and dust resistant(IPS67 certified).
The main camera is a single 12 MP wide angle one, similar to the flagships in terms of megapixel count,with 5X digital zoom and all other Apple camera features.I personally feel in point and shoot category iPhone camera is the best and iPhoneSE2020 will be the same.You can record 4K videos at 24,30 or 60 fps,1080P(HD) videos at 30/60fps ,720p at 30fps and slow motion videos(HD) at 120/240 fps.
The front camera or the more popular term of selfie camera is a 7MP one and supports portrait,advanced bokeh and depth control mode.You can also record videos of 1080P at 30fps.
RAM AND BATTERY
iPhoneSE2020 comes with 3gigs of ram and 64,128 & 256 GB internal storage variants.
It has a battery of 1821mAH which gives video playback of 13 hours as per company claims and supports 18 watt fast charging.Black,White and Product Red are the colour variants available.
The fact is this phone in terms of looks is outdated.It is clear that it is in the same structure of the Apple 8 but still the iPhoneSE2020 is creating a sensation.This is simply because it is an Apple device.Lifetime Apple users never want to come out of the Apple ecosystem as they call it.You cannot blame them.Nobody wants to come out of their comfort zone.The ease with which any Apple device can be interconnected is really uncomparable.
Then comes those users who longed for an iPhone but could not afford the flagships.It will be very hard for them to look out of this opportunity of buying an affordable iPhone.
There is competition.The Poco F2 Pro is a real flagship killer.With all the high end specs including the Snapdragon 865 SoC its like a god’s gift to Android lovers and the price is almost same as the iPhone SE.
Google Pixel 4A is coming and with stock android features and Google branding will be a mouth watering offer.From the rumours the price is also expected to be lower than the SE2020.In my opininio though the Pixel 4A is lacking a powerful chipset.The Snapdragon 730 is no match to the A13 SoC of Apple.
All said ultimately Android lovers will not go for this iPhone because at the same price tag they will get much more.Still I feel the price specially for an Apple device is really praiseworthy and one may give it a try.Moreover I believe there are still customers who long for a phone with such a small form factor and such is almost extinct in Android phones.The iPhoneSE2020 ( https://medium.com/@techknowsp/information-about-iphone-se-2020-264c8e4d6d82 ) is absolutely fast no doubt about that.If you are fed up of the big bricks that are a fashion nowadays this is the phone to consider.
