iPhone 6s vs iPhone SE

Which one is best for you?

Just six months after the release of iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, Apple unveiled the iPhone SE. Though smaller and more affordable than iPhone 6s, it came with many of the same features – making it a very popular release. The 4-inch screen of iPhone SE is ideal if you like a pocket-sized phone that’s easy to use one-handed. In appearance, it’s closer to iPhone 5S than iPhone 6s – but in performance it’s a good match for the latter.

In fact, iPhone SE has the same 12-megapixel camera as iPhone 6s so you can capture brilliant images on both. It has the same A9 processor chip, too, so you can expect the same speed and performance, and it’ll continue to support the latest versions of your favourite apps for years to come.

Depending on how you use your phone, you might find the 4.7-inch screen of iPhone 6s easier on the eyes – especially if you like to watch videos on the go. One further difference is 3D Touch – iPhone 6 has it – iPhone SE doesn’t. So if you want to use the more sophisticated features of apps you’ll find iPhone 6 a more attractive proposition. But if you just want the benefit of Apple’s A9 chip, easy to use operating system and superb 12-megapixel camera, iPhone SE is certainly a great choice.
