iPhone SE 2 Review
The display of the iPhone SE 2020 is at par with all the latest iPhones in the market at the moment. The size of the display at 4.7 inches is rather small compared to the other smartphones around the world, but its HD retina display makes up for it. The device also supports 4K video streaming allowing you to enjoy the finest shows and movies in extremely high definition. The ion-strengthened glass and the oleophobic coating makes it an extremely sturdy device. At around 65 percent, the screen to body ratio of the device is not its best feature, with two thick bezels both on the top and below the screen. This is an area where android smartphones have had better results.
The phone is built with durable glass is furnished with an aluminium design, making the back design absolutely stunning. The iPhone SE 2 is currently the only device being manufactured by Apple that has a physical home button. Taking inspiration from the massively successful iPhone 8, the designers built the new design keeping mind the users who were against the removal of the home button.

Memory and Processing
The Apple iPhone SE 2 is equipped with the fastest chip till date. The Apple 13 Bionic chip is the fastest chip in the world, overtaking even the Snapdragon 855.

Like all Apple phones, the SE 2020 is no exception to the ‘no memory card’ rule.

If there is one domain, where Apple has thwarted every other smartphone company, it is privacy, and the SE 2020 has followed a similar path. Apart from the popular and reliable Apple face recognition software, the phone also brings back the extremely popular touch-id that was severely missed by many users. The home button of the phone can also be used to open the recent tabs menu.
Camera and Video Recording
The camera department in iPhone SE 2020 is impressive in spite of only the single lens. The 12 mega pixel rear camera has amazing features which include but are not limited to depth control, portrait lighting and high key light mono. Nevertheless, the dual lens camera of the iPhone 11 easily surpasses the SE 2020. The camera also supports 4K video recording allowing you to shoot clips by just using your mobile phone. The front camera holds 7 mega pixels and supports face recognition. While the camera department of the iPhone SE 2 may not be as powerful as its predecessor, it is good enough for an ordinary user.
