Apple budget iPhone is back. The iPhone SE (2020) is great news for those who want an up-to-date iOS experience without the eye-watering prices of flagship handsets such as the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. Indeed, we concluded that “Apple’s budget iPhone delivers a satisfying and slick smartphone experience at an attractive price”.

The iPhone SE (2020) has a lovely 4.7in Retina HD display that supports Dolby Vision and HDR10.

The second-gen iPhone SE is powered by the same Apple A13 Bionic chip found in the 11 and 11 Pro, too, making it among the fastest and most powerful iPhones out there.

The new iPhone SE features what Apple describes as its best-ever single-camera system in an iPhone – and we found it to be a “a solid point-and-shoot snapper”. It’s a 12MP camera with software including Apple’s Portrait mode, all six Portrait Lighting effects and Depth Control. Video capture goes up to a maximum of 4K resolution at 60fps.

Design-wise, the most notable thing to know about the iPhone SE (2020) is that it’s smaller. You still get quality, though; it’s built with an aluminium and glass body, and is available in a choice of white, black or red finishes. This iPhone is water- and dust-resistant to IP67 standards. 

There are three storage sizes available for the iPhone SE – 64GB, 128GB and 256GB. They’re available at £419 ($399), £469 ($449) and £569 ($549) respectively, but it’s well worth keeping an eye on the SIM-free prices in case any deals pop up.
