The cheapest iPhone becomes even less so. For the “6 Optimist Days”, the Fnac and Darty brands lower their base price by 40 €. In fact, the smartphone is displayed from € 449 in 64 GB and € 499 in 128 GB. What jump at the opportunity to afford a small inexpensive Apple mobile.

The iPhone SE of 2020 takes again the chassis and the design of the iPhone 8. On the outside, no upheaval since we are dealing with a 4.7-inch LCD panel, with beautiful borders and, above all, TouchID as biometric unlocking solution. On the back, it’s a simple 12-megapixel module which, without being excellent, still pretty much holds up. The iPhone’s battery has also been preserved and promises a battery life of around 10 hours. For the rest, Apple has decided to offer the Apple A13 chip, the same one that is integrated in the iPhone 11 of 2019. This iPhone SE 2020 edition is therefore a very powerful smartphone and will be so for a few more years, an argument that may be decisive when buying.

Its advantages

  • Excellent finishes
  • Well calibrated and very bright slab
  • Top-of-the-range performance
  • A compact format that has become rare

What might hold you back

  • A bit dated design
  • Autonomy a little behind
  • The fast charger still missing
  • A photo part more up to date in 2020

As an alternative

If you want a little better, the iPhone 11 is a must. The 2019 smartphone also has the Apple A13 chip. He opts for a new design, closer to the high-end models of the firm at the apple. It has a 6.1 inch LCD panel, with FaceID to protect your data. On the back, it has two modules, a 12-megapixel main and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle as well, both offering better results than the iPhone SE 2020. Same thing for autonomy, since the battery of the iPhone 11 allows it to last a little over 13 hours. It will necessarily cost a little more to get it, but it is certainly a good investment.
