Reviewing my new iPhone SE

iPhone SE box

I decided to purchase an iPhone SE after unpacking my bags, looking in my car and asking my sister to look inside and outside her house to find that my iPhone 5s.

The last time I saw my iPhone 5s was when I called my mum before I left around 2.30pm on Saturday afternoon. I left m sister’s house in Exeter around 3pm. I remember putting my phone into another bag so I could have the phone in my bag on the passenger seat next to me.

I arrived home around 5pm in the dark, and it was wet and windy, so I had to carry my bags and walk further than usual because the gate was locked.

I wanted to phone my sister to tell her that I had arrived home ok and I panicked as soon as I couldn’t find my phone in any of my bags, car or coat pocket.

My phone wasn’t just a phone, my business accounts linked to it. I started looking at phones as I was planning an upgrade this year; however, I wasn’t planning on changing my phone until the summer. I usually change my phone every two years, and I had this phone for less than two years. I initially looked at the iPhone 6s, but it’s currently still a little expensive at £389.99.

I choose the iPhone SE because it was an affordable upgrade from the iPhone 5s and it’s the same size, so it isn’t difficult trying to get used to a smaller and more compact screen.

My father ordered the phone online as an early birthday present for me.

iPhone SE camera

Being a blogger, Vlogger and a photographer one of the most important features I look for on a phone is the photo quality. I was amazed to see how a 12-megapixel sensor can have quick focusing.

The SE also has the same camera and processor as the 6S; it also shares 4K video recording at 30 frames per second. Not only that but it comes with the excellent slo-mo video recording that lets you shoot at a whopping 240fps for 720p and 120fps at 1080p resolutions.

The front camera is less impressive, Instead of the 5-megapixel sensor on the iPhone 6S, it’s a disappointing 1.2-megapixel one.

Retina Flash allows the SE’s screen to light up three times more brightly than my iPhone 5s, so can enjoy some light when taking selfies in the dark.

Since the iPhone 8 and iPhone X were brought out at the end of 2017, the price of the SE has now been reduced to £299.99 in stores like Curry’s and Argos.
