Apple’s new iPhone SE- very small for most of the people!

with the iPhone SE everything that is old is now new again,but is it good to go with the 2016’s phones which are typically bigger ones than this? 4″ inches smartphone does look smaller for many!!

Apple’s new iPhone SE occupies the bottom end of Apple’s iPhone price range, below the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6. It’s now the only smartphone Apple makes with a screen smaller than 4.7″, which for some could be a big deal. For others it could be a deal breaker though.

iPhone 5, 5S or iPhone SE?

The iPhone SE is the spitting image of the iPhone 5S with same edges and the same colour and also texture as the back of the device, it comes in rose gold, the Apple logo on the back is shiny, and there’s a small “SE” emblem engraved on the back, reminiscent of the Machintosh SE from 1987.
It’s still relatively slimmer at 7.6mm thick – its hard square edges make it feel thicker than it is – and it weighs 113g, which is quite light for a smartphone these days but also it’s very small for a smartphone in 2016.
The screen is the same as it is in the 5S, 4′ inches on the diagonal with the same quality colours, brightness and blacks. Compared to the iPhone 6S the screen is slightly weaker, with poor blacks and vibrancy. It’s not a much bad screen by any stretch of the imagination, it’s just a good screen from two years ago, which is exactly what it is.
In the hand, the body feels hard and sharp, with unforgiving edges which are only acceptable because of the phone’s diminutive size. The hard edges are easier to grip than the slippery rounded sides of the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus.
The iPhone SE’s closest rival is the excellent Sony Xperia Z5 Compact, which has a significantly larger 4.6′ display, weighs 138g, is 8.9mm thick and has slightly larger dimensions. 
Using a 4” screen in 2016 is a compromise however. Websites feel very cramped, apps often leave only a small amount of screen to the content they’re trying to display and buttons can end up very small making tapping them a bit of a challenge.

Camera

 
The rear camera is the same 12-megapixel shooter as in the iPhone 6S and performs same as in the 6S. It’s one of the best cameras available on a smartphone, with good detail and colour balance, but it has been bettered recently by cameras from Samsung, Sony and Google.
It is a big steppup from the iPhone 5S with 4K video recording and Apple’s Live Photos, which are nice to play with but end up being a gimmick that’s difficult to share with non-iPhone users.
The 1.2-megapixel selfie camera, however, is the same as that in the iPhone 5S and is distinctly worse than the rear camera or that fitted to the iPhone 6S, which is a shame. It will shoot better selfies in good light, but struggles in low-light conditions.
