Notre avis sur l'iPhone SE 2020 : on l'achète ou pas ?

In the middle of the COVID-19 crisis, Apple launched its iPhone SE 2020. The orders were made only online with a home delivery or via a collection system. Did you buy it? Are you satisfied so far?

Offered from 489 euros, the iPhone SE 2020 is an affordable model and has, moreover, 64 GB of memory: a real bargain for those who needed a new iPhone. Indeed, at this price, you can usually only find used iPhones or Android smartphones. By choosing the iPhone SE 2020, you get all the benefits of iOS without spending 800 to 1000 euros, the usual price to pay for an iPhone.

We don't want to spend too much money on a phone when we still have to pay for groceries, bills and other essentials.

What we like about the 2020 iPhone SE

The camera

It's no longer a given that photos and videos taken with an iPhone are breathtakingly sharp. This is also the case with an iPhone SE 2020. For 489 euros, you get two powerful cameras: a 12 megapixel back camera and a 7 megapixel front camera.

In daylight, the sharpness of photos and videos is comparable to that of the iPhone 11 Pro.

The 2020 iPhone SE is equipped with an Apple A13 Bionic processor. Both cameras feature Portrait Mode, using AI to achieve that depth of field that has become the norm these days.

Video quality is especially good: ideal in the age of TikTok and video chats while we're confined to the house, or for video enthusiasts who stage toys or film their pets and then upload them to Instagram.

You can compare the quality of a video from an iPhone SE 2020 to any Android, regardless of price, and with its wide dynamic range, 4K optical and software capabilities at 60 frames per second, the iPhone SE 2020 certainly won't look foolish against other more expensive smartphones.


Stability in the sense of stable and continuous software support. With regular iOS updates, you'll be able to keep your iPhone SE 2020 for a long time.

For decades, the hardware construction of iPhones has been legendary. The 2020 iPhone SE has the classic design of an older iPhone: thicker screen borders and a smaller screen. Compromise that explains its attractive price - it's built the old-fashioned way with a classic design, and the factories already have the tools to equip it with new technologies.

The battery

For the price, its battery is more than decent. It can last you a whole day without needing to be recharged and lasts about 4-5 hours of continuous use. Not bad, right?

What we like less about the iPhone SE 2020

The small screen

The screen looks just like an older iPhone, so the design is a bit dated. Phones these days have very sleek, almost non-existent screen borders. That's why tempered glass screen protectors are a must! If you're thinking of getting an iPhone SE after using an iPhone older than the XR, don't hesitate for a second! Its classic design will not give you any trouble.

The 2020 iPhone SE: should we buy?

Absolutely. The iPhone SE 2020 is a phone with very appreciable performance. Just read over the negative points, which aren't many. If you're thinking of switching your old iPhone for the 2020 SE, you'll definitely notice the differences, and also all the improvements Apple has made to its iPhones.

There's no need to compare it to more expensive iPhones. Its performance is impressive and as we mentioned earlier, the video capabilities of the 2020 iPhone SE surpass those of high-end Android phones in the same price range.

We can't wait to see how you accessorize your iPhone SE 2020! Take a look at our shockproof cases with mirror and oursilicone cases to make it even more elegant or cute, and armor resistant cases if you're planning to give a 2020 iPhone SE to a teenager!
