The iPhone SE is a good improvement on the 5s, although it looks almost identical. The rear camera has been upgraded to 12 MP and the phone becomes faster with a A9 chip. The iPhone SE also has a longer-lasting battery than the 5s.
The iPhone SE is aimed at first-time buyers and those who wish to upgrade from the iPhone 5s and 5c. With a 4-inch display the phone is compact and handy. Apple was compelled to keep the size of the new iPhone SE down as costumers have showed an inclination towards smaller phones rather than going for larger iPhones.
The iPhone SE comes in the same colour variants introduced in the iPhone 6s, including Rose Gold. The rounded edges on the top and bottom panels resemble more with the iPhone 6 than the iPhone 5s.
Apple has also provided Apple Pay support and Touch ID fingerprint sensor in the iPhone SE.
In a nutshell the new iPhone SE is a good phone, that is, if you are willing to shell out the price. Had Apple gone a bit conservative with its price, the phone would have created ripples in the Indian smartphone market, but at Rs 39,000 the new iPhone SE will face tough competition from rival brands like Samsung, that command a big market share in India.
