iPhone SE is a powerful and portable 4-inch smartphone from Apple. Although it was released in March 2016, the phone is still being bought till date. The phone is Apple’s version of a midrange device, an expensive one at that. But going with Apple’s flagship line, the iPhone SE is quite inexpensive perhaps. It features Apple Pay as well, with Visa, MasterCard and AMEX certified. Below is my iPhone SE Specs review.

iPhone SE DESIGN

It’s an iPhone, that should ring a bell. It sports Apple’s beloved logo on the back, with a very compact look. Probably too compact? The device was crafted from bead-blasted aluminium for a satin-like finish.
