iPhone SE (2022) review: A pint-sized powerhouse
The $429 iPhone SE (2022) is a phone that straddles the future and the past. The A15 Bionic chip inside this phone delivers flagship power for hundreds less than the iPhone 13. And the image quality is mostly excellent despite being limited to a single rear camera. I just wish Apple found a way to include a proper Night mode.
And yet the design of the new iPhone SE looks like a throwback with its small 4.7-inch display and huge bezels around the display; the iPhone 13 mini shows that you can cram a larger 5.4-inch display into a small phone, but it costs $699.
Overall, the iPhone SE (2022) mostly succeeds in terms of providing a great value. But next time I’d like to see a design that better matches the cutting edge vibe of the internals. Read full review…
iPhone SE (2022) Review: Mind-Blowing Value
As was the case in 2016 and 2020, the iPhone SE is your cheapest admission ticket to Apple’s ecosystem: iCloud, iMessage, App Store, Apple TV Plus, Apple Music, FaceTime. At $429, I think it’s worth the price and is an incredible value for what you get.
I wish that Apple had kept the Read full review…as an even cheaper way to get an iPhone, but this new iPhone SE still packs lots of modern features and will likely get more from iOS updates in years to come.
iPhone SE (2022) review
The iPhone SE (2022) is faster and better-connected than its predecessor, and at the most attractive price currently possible for a new 5G iPhone. However if you’re looking for a better iPhone deal with bigger screens, better cameras, and a bigger list of modern specs, the new SE might not be for you. Read full review…
APPLE’S NEW IPHONE SE IS A MODERN PHONE STUCK IN YESTERDAY’S DESIGN
If you know in your heart of hearts you won’t mind a small screen for at least the next few years, and you just want a reasonably priced device that gets you through your day without any trouble, then this is the iPhone for you. It’s fast, has all the 5G bands that matter, and will most certainly get you through the foreseeable future without having to suffer the pain of making another phone purchase.
For everyone else, I think a bigger screen is a necessity. If you can consider a switch to Android and the green bubble life, the Google Pixel 5A is a fantastic option that’s right around the same price. It includes an ultrawide camera, a great night mode, and, crucially, a much bigger 6.34-inch OLED screen. It’s only guaranteed updates for three years, though. Read full review…
Apple iPhone SE (2022) Review
Ultimately, the iPhone 13 remains our Editors’ Choice winner for the majority of iPhone buyers, with the best mix of features and performance for the price. But that price starts at $799. For around half that amount, the 2022 iPhone SE is a suitable alternative if you don’t use your phone heavily—it’s simply not as compelling as its predecessor was when it launched. Read full review…
Apple iPhone SE 3 (2022) review: One foot in the past
As with most Apple products, there are plenty of things the Apple iPhone SE (2022) does well. Its camera is great, the display looks lovely (as long as you’re not bothered by the slow 60Hz refresh rate) and the high levels of performance the A15 Bionic processor delivers will ensure the phone will still perform well long after the battery has given up the ghost.
However, it’s becoming increasingly hard to justify recommending a phone that looks so dated and one that delivers such mediocre battery life. If you really can’t stretch to an iPhone 13 mini and just can’t face moving away from the Apple ecosystem, then at £419 the iPhone SE (2022) is your only choice – unless you don’t mind buying secondhand or reconditioned. However, it’s very hard to get enthused about it this time around. Read full review…
Apple iPhone SE (2022) review: Small in size, big in value
For some, the iPhone SE (2022) is the ideal smartphone as it’s compact, powerful, and affordable. Those are some seriously desirable qualities. Plus, when you add in Apple’s excellent build quality, long-term software support, and what is still a sleek design, the little phone makes a great deal of sense. Read full review…
