Apple iPhone SE 16 GB Smartphone - Rose Gold
- Enter your model number above to make sure this fits.
- A beloved design. Now with more to love. iPhone SE takes an incredibly popular design and refines it even further. Crafted from bead-blasted aluminium for a satin-like finish, this light and compact phone is designed to fit comfortably in your hand. A brilliant 4-inch Retina display makes everything look vibrant and sharp. And matt-chamfered edges and a colour-matched stainless steel logo finish the look.
- The most powerful 4‑inch phone ever. At the core of iPhone SE is the A9, the same advanced chip that's in iPhone 6s. With 64-bit desktop-class architecture, the A9 chip brings you spectacular speed and responsiveness. And with console-class graphics performance, your favourite games and apps are incredibly rich and immersive. Making it a mighty chip for maximum performance.
- The only camera you'll ever need. With a 12-megapixel iSight camera, you can be sure to capture sharp, detailed stills like the ones shot on iPhone 6s. That includes shooting - and even editing - brilliant 4K video, which is up to four times the resolution of 1080p HD video.
- An easier, more secure way to pay. Touch ID isn't just for unlocking your phone. It also lets you use Apple Pay in hundreds of thousands of shops and within apps. In shops, just hold your iPhone near the reader with your finger on Touch ID, and you're done. Because your card details are never shared - or even stored on your device - Apple Pay is a safer, more private way to pay.
- Hardware and software made for each other. With an easy-to-use interface, amazing features and security at its core, iOS 9 is our most advanced mobile operating system and the foundation of iPhone SE. It's designed to look beautiful and work beautifully on your iPhone, so even the simplest tasks are more fun.

This is a review of the iPhone SE which I bought on release day (£359.00 unlocked from the Apple Store Covent Garden).
I bought the Space Grey (more masculine) with 16GB. I didn't need 64 GB as I often back up my phone onto my iMac - leaving it free of bloat.
I'd only suggest a 64GB if you hardly ever back up or plug your iPhone into your iMac/PC, or travel a lot and need the space for extended video and photographs.
The Space Grey version seems to be the most popular and was sold out in most places - this iPhone SE works best with the Spigen® [Ultra Hybrid] AIR CUSHION [Crystal Clear] case - which is superb - it is crystal clear so you can see and admire the beauty of this phone with protection.
I've had an iPhone 5s (still in excellent condition) for a few years and was holding out for a smaller screened iPhone - I do not like and cannot get on with the new swath of big slablet phones which are usual these days - I loathe them, they're too big for one handed use, too big and cumbersome to slip in pockets, hold and use as one should and very conspicuous and I'd feel like a fool with a huge thing against my ear- they're no longer phones but computers first and foremost.
I don't need the huge screen - this (5s and SE size) screen is good enough - not even an iPad Pro screen will give anyone enjoyment when wanting to enjoy a feature Film - for browsing and Youtube and other phone related stuff this is more than big enough, if I need some extra real estate - or am mobile and there's more than one of us wanting to watch a film or video - no mobile phone screen is really large enough for that - for that we have iPads and Tablets.
It is The Perfect size - as a phone first and foremost.Read more ›
I from time to time switch from iOS to Android. I’m comfortable using both and feel they both have their own relevant advantages and disadvantages. Prior to purchasing the iPhone SE I owned the OnePlus 2, before that the Samsung Galaxy S5 and before that the iPhone 4S. I’ve separated this review into separate headings for the sake of simplicity. This won’t be in-depth by any means but I can offer my anecdotal subjective experience in the hope that it’ll shed some light on how this device operates day to day in the real world. I firmly believe that although not entirely unimportant, specs aren’t as relevant as real world performance so here goes:
The screen measures 4.0 inches diagonally. These days that may seem small but for a lot of people purchasing the SE, it’s the very reason they did. Screen quality is average but far from bad. It uses the same 640 x 1136 resolution as the iPhone 5 did. In a world where 1920x1080 seems the norm and most high end phones are pushing 2560 x 1440, don’t let this put you off. It still has 326 PPI so it is still sharp enough not for you to notice any pixels at any reasonable distance. Viewing angles are good and so is the brightness. Sure, it won’t wow you like any of the recent Samsung Galaxy phones but given the fact that the aforementioned are pushing virtual reality, the iPhone SE isn’t and simply does not need a resolution that high. Sure, it is not as pretty as the others but it is far from bad and the payback you get in terms of performance and battery due to not having to unnecessarily power such a pixel dense display is worth it.Read more ›
I wanted an iPhone update, but didn't want the larger and more expensive 6 series. My SE came from an Apple Store (sorry Amazon) and was discounted by £100 as I traded in my old iPhone 5, which had a rather poor battery.
The SE has much better battery life than my old 5 had, even when the 5 was new. It is also much faster and more responsive. I love the fingerprint reader and Apple Pay.
Having more LTE (4G) bands than my earlier 5, in some places I get 4G coverage where I only had 3G on the 5.
I've updated the firmware to iOS 9.3.2 without any problem.
I have found no down sides with the SE at all.
📷 Has better camera
Otherwise, looks and feels IDENTICAL.
I love the 4inch form factor.
I thought this would be gimmicky, and it is, a bit. But in some circumstances it's really nice to have a mini clip of sound (it's basically a 3 second video).
I have the iPhone 6s (purchased directly from Apple) which is a brilliant phone. If you compare the internal spec of the 6s with the SE, you will find a lot of similarities though - same processor (A9 chip), both have a 12 megapixel camera, both have a Retina display (albeit the 6s has HD), both can shoot 4K videos, same IOS. The are differences too - the size of screen clearly (4.7 inches vs 4 inches) and the overall phone size, the resolution. I could go on.
For me though, the biggest difference is how they feel in my hand. I bought my 6s at the back end of last year because my old 4s was knackered. It's great, but it feels slightly too big in my hands. The width and height of the SE (which is comparable in size to the 5s I had) feels much more comfortable to hold and makes the operation of the phone that little bit easier ... easier to reach the top of the screen on the SE, not so on the 6s (which is why the 6s has the 'reachability' option).
This would (hindsight !!) be a primary consideration if I was making an iPhone purchase now. The timing of the demise of my 4s forced my hand. The 6s was the new kid on the block and the SE was at best just a 'rumour' at that time.
PS, whichever one you decide on, I do strongly believe that the 16gb version is best avoided. Firstly, the operating system will take up a huge chunk of the capacity - c.4gb. Secondly, we take lots of pictures, videos, download more and more apps nowadays and generally, do far more on our phones than ever before. I appreciate that Apple charge a huge premium for capacity, but if you're able to spend that much on a phone, try and pay the extra £80 or so and get the 64gb.

This is my first iPhone. The photos it takes are amazing and surfing the net is so easy despite the small screen--my previous smartphone feels so clunky by comparison. Read morePublished 11 days ago by Wish I Were a Film Critic
