Apple iPhone After two Months SE 2020

I’ve been using this iPhone SC 2020 is my primary phone since it launched about two months ago then I thought it would be the best way to get a

feel of what a $400 iPhone feels like versus the $1100 iPhone 11 pro max that I was using before this I want to talk about all of the

things that impressed me about the iPhone SE and one major downfall that made me regret the switch and why I’m so glad to be back on this let’s get

right into it okay so the biggest thing that I had to get used to is the size of the phone and the size of the display it’s refreshing in

away because it’s so much lighter and more compact in your pocket but I find the screen to be a little too small for my liking now if you

come in from an iPhone 8 this is exactly what you’re used to and after I used it for a couple of days I got used to it but this

thick forehead and chin combo is showing its age but gets the job done even after two months I still find it harder to type since I’m so

used to a bigger display but it’s easier to use with one hand so it depends how you look at it when you’re indoors the display is perfectly fine but

viewing in bright sunlight is a bit of an issue the more expensive iPhones have a brighter screen the dual speakers are surprisingly good and get nice and loud

but at the maximum volume it does get a little bit tinny but besides that, it’s really solid going back to the fingerprint scanner for me wasn’t that bad actually

it’s still relatively quick once you get used to it but it did make me appreciate how good face ideas it’s a lot quicker in most instances and it’s

more intuitive but I have to admit it’s so much easier with touch ID when wearing a mask I didn’t appreciate this until all this madness happened what’s great

is I didn’t find my daily experience to be much different and that largely has to do with the power that’s inside of the iPhone so this has the same

813 processor that is in the more expensive iPhone so I found the performance to be a very good day today I do have to say I think it’s a

little bit snappier on the iPhone 11 Pro I did experience a few hiccups here and there and a little bit of stuttering on the iPhone SE and I think

that has to do maybe with the limited amount of RAM but for the most part, nothing changed I was still able to use Apple pay which I’m doing a

a lot more of these days and the smaller size iPhone as made me appreciate the classic cases like the slim Armour CS from the channel sponsor spigen I love

using this convenient card holder built into the case so I don’t have to worry about bringing my wallet with me most of the time this type of case would

add a little too much bulk for me but this is not the case at all I found myself using this combo a lot especially when exercising or going for

a bike ride it just made me fall in love with the case all over again and the red color just complements the product red so well but you know

me my go-to for almost every phone is the ultra hybrid because I love clear cases especially when they show off such a stunning color it adds the right amount

of grip and gives me the protection I need with the four to five corners in a nice lip around the screen and thankfully I have not dropped this phone

into two months that I’ve used it that’s a record because usually, I drop it within the first two weeks almost every time so I’m really happy about that the

the most exciting part is the perfect match for my air Potts Pro yes there is an ultra hybrid for these now I was super stoked to see these released this

is a beautiful pairing let me know what you think about this combo if you’re interested in picking these up for your iPhone so I will leave a link down

below for you right now I’m using the Neo Hybrid this was my go-to case back in the day I don’t know if you remember the ones a while ago

with the metal frames those were the absolute favorites I love the texture clash with the grip but the smooth corners this red pops I dig it so follow

me on social and I’ll let you know how these cases hold up over time but so far so good

when you look at the big picture the iPhone SE looks too good to be true you get the same power inside as the bigger and more expensive phone great

build quality with nice materials like you would expect on an Apple device ip68 water resistance a solid camera on the back with the best 4k video on the market

that is a lot for a $400 phone so what are you sacrificing when you’re using the cheaper iPhone so let’s talk about the things that I miss the

most about going from the best that Apple has to offer to the best value that they have I have to admit I missed having the extra lenses on the

back especially the wide-angle sometimes I just wanted that wider field of view or I wanted that extra reach with the 2x and I found myself missing it the

digital zoom just isn’t great but I guess that if you’re used to just one camera then you’ll never know what you’re missing because you never had those cameras so

I guess this complaint is moot I am going to say that there’s only one camera on the back but it’s a damn good one and I think most people

will be very happy with it the images are full of dynamic range with Smart HDR you even get portrait mode with just one lens even though it’s limited to

just people but at least you get that option and you get pretty much the best 4k video that you get on a smartphone still with up to 4k 60

frames per second which is great but you do lose that extended dynamic range where on the more expensive iPhones they have that but I’m betting a lot of you

will not care in this price point if you’re wondering how the latest SC compares to the iPhone 8 in photos I did a full camera comparison between the two

so make sure you watch that it shows how much the processor and image processing makes a difference since the camera is the same hardware as the iPhone

8 the low-light though suffers because it doesn’t have a built-in night mode I wish that Apple would have included this but overall for a budget iPhone camera it

delivers above the quality that you would expect so the camera is solid so I said at the beginning of the video that there was one major downfall with my

experience and that unfortunately his battery life this phone regardless of optimization has a small 1821 million power battery because of the small size I no battery life is subjective

and everyone uses their phone differently but here is the breakdown of my experience with the battery with the iPhone SE in the last two months I wirelessly charged every

a super convenient night got to give credit for that being in there for a budget phone if I use the phone moderately I could make it through the

entire day phone would die around 8 or 9 p.m.

and I think a lot of that has to do with the screen brightness most of the time I had to keep this phone on 100% brightness for me

to enjoy it I did some tests where I lowered the screen brightness to 50% and while that wasn’t a great experience I did get much better battery life where

I struggled it was on days where I was on social media more because I released a video or using that camera more that day because I went out with

the family in these cases the phone would die around 3 or 4 p.m.

and since I’m a heavy user this affected my experience so I ended up topping up a lot of times during the day where I was conscious

on what my battery life was like before I left the house wherewith my iPhone 11 pro max I didn’t have to and some days it was just really

frustrating to be fair this is not a good comparison because the iPhone SE is so much cheaper than the iPhone 11 pro max but even other Android phones

within this $400 price point have a better battery life so if you’re going to buy this phone just make sure you carry around a battery pack with you, hey it

might not be a big deal for some because you’re used to doing this on your current phone but for me ultimately this is what made me regret switching to

the iPhone se even though I had to for the two months I was dedicated to sticking to this phone but it was a really big deal for me so

I want to know is battery life a deal-breaker or do all of the other awesome features make up for the lack of battery life let me know in a

the comment section below I’m really curious so in the end, the iPhone SE 2020 is the best value Apple has period and yes you have an older rehash design

and it does look outdated for smartphones today but the core stuff for the most part outside of the battery life is met with a fantastic camera that creates

great photos that have the best 4k video on the market and the fact that you will get software
