The new iPhone SE has the outstanding advantage of a compact design, easy to handle but still integrated within a huge configuration at the present time. That’s not to mention the very reasonable price, very accessible (You can see the official price of iPhone SE 2020 at Mobile World: HERE). Should we buy this machine as the main machine? Before deciding to take a look at this article, okay?
Note: Apple has used the phrase “New iPhone SE” – The new iPhone SE so I decided to use this name throughout the article.
1. Designed like the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8, the compact device is easy to hold
Prior to the launch, the new iPhone SE was rumored to have a design similar to the iPhone 8. And indeed the new iPhone SE has exactly the same design, this is like an upgraded iPhone 8 configuration on the side. in more than the next generation iPhone SE.
According to the initial experience, the new iPhone SE feels compact and not unlike iPhone 7 or iPhone 8. Although the old design has no breakthrough, the new iPhone SE brings many nostalgia to people. use iPhone.
In particular, the old design will help Touch ID return on iPhone. Apple says this is a second-generation Touch ID, so it will help unlock the screen faster. Especially in this season, when users hesitate to open masks to use Face ID, Touch ID is more valuable than ever.

Like the iPhone 8, the new iPhone SE has a 4.7-inch Retina IPS LCD screen with Retina HD resolution with True Tone technology for excellent color display.
The new iPhone SE also doesn’t come with a 3.5mm headphone jack, but it will include a Lightning headset in the box. The machine is launched with 3 colors (more than the old iPhone SE) for users to freely choose from Black, White and Product (RED) (red). Especially red Product RED is very beautiful.

The design of the new compact iPhone SE can help users hold it with one hand, this is a difference from other models on the market when the screen and the overall size of the phone are getting bigger. .
However, myself from the beginning had a little expectation that the design on the new iPhone SE will be quite similar to the iPhone 4s with the overall machine is still compact, but the thick metal surround and feels more rugged than the iPhone 8. Even so, life is not a dream …
2. iPhone SE (2020) – Using Apple’s most powerful chip
Despite being a mid-range device like the new iPhone SE, Apple is still equipped with the latest Bionic A13 chip running on 7 nm process. This chip will give the new iPhone SE a performance that can be said to be stamping out other competitors in the same price segment.
IPhone users who love the design of the iPhone 8, but the performance of the current iPhone 8 is not enough to meet the demand anymore, the new iPhone SE is a great choice. The processor on the new iPhone SE will be similar to the three most advanced iPhone models currently iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max.
Especially when the new iPhone SE is running on iOS 13, the performance is even more optimized. With iOS 13, the new iPhone SE will come with many features such as Dark Mode, Haptic Touch, …
Detailed configuration and powerful features on the new iPhone SE.
Besides, the new iPhone SE also supports Wi-Fi 6, Gigabit LTE and dual SIM (but the second sim is just eSim). It also supports IP67 water resistance, which means you can take your device into the water to a depth of 1 m for 30 minutes.
The new iPhone SE has 3 internal memory options of 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB.
3. Machine only a back camera but still take pictures delete fonts
The new iPhone SE does not follow the trend of multiple cameras, but it only comes equipped with a 12 MP 6-layer lens after the lens, f / 1.8 aperture (using the same sensor as the iPhone 11) comes with an LED flash.
The new processor also allows the new iPhone SE to get some new camera features. Apple says it is taking advantage of the A13 Bionic chip to improve Smart HDR photography capabilities, combining multiple photos into one image to improve lighting and detail.
Despite having a camera, the new iPhone SE also supports portrait photography to remove the background, because Apple introduced a technology called “monocular depth sensing”. Accordingly, this technology uses machine learning to detect the depth of field and the human face, resulting in a background image without the need for an auxiliary camera.
However, the new iPhone SE lacks a wide-angle camera which is quite a bit short. (Source: Apple)
In addition, the camera of the new iPhone SE also supports optical image stabilization and Apple says it can perform video stabilization as well as support 4K video at 60 fps. On the front, the new iPhone SE supports a 7 MP selfie camera and portrait modes.
However, the absence of a wide-angle camera is a minus point that makes the new iPhone SE a bit outdated. Demand for wide-angle photos of users is very large, but in this paragraph, the iPhone SE probably did not meet.
4. Battery life “may” not be high due to compact design
Of course, with a compact design like the iPhone 8, Apple can’t put a large capacity battery into the new iPhone SE. iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 have inherently low battery life, and Apple claims that the battery life of iPhone SE will be equivalent to iPhone 8.
With the A13 and iOS 13 chips, the new iPhone SE is expected to have enough battery life to meet user needs. When you have a product to evaluate in detail, I will check more carefully the amount of time the device can survive through specific tasks, please look forward to it.
Besides, the new iPhone SE will come with a 5W charger in the box (it also supports 18W fast charging but must be purchased separately). The new iPhone SE also supports Qi wireless charging.

With an attractive price combined with a reservation program to reduce immediately 1.5 million or 0% installments this is something users are interested in.
6. “Old bottles of new wine, are they worth long-term use?”
The new iPhone SE is true to the formula for the production of the iPhone SE-Series. Indeed, this model is like a new old bottle of iPhone 8. With a price of over 9 million for an iPhone with a camera. Statues and processors similar to Apple’s most expensive iPhones are a good value for money. Especially when the new iPhone SE will be updated with software for many years to come.
Looking at the configuration and price, we can comment that the machine is worth. But other factors must wait for a detailed evaluation to comment. This device is expected to help Apple regaining market share of ‘compact’ phones, ‘strong’ configurations, ‘attractive’ prices that have fallen into the hands of Samsung and Huawei.
