After months of ongoing rumors, Apple has finally put an end to all of 4-inch rumors and estimate by launching the iPhone SE. This is the time different from the rest where the launch of a 4 inch phone has created so much buzz in town.
With apple effectively calling it “the most powerful 4 inch phone”, let’s have a look at its specs and discuss why you shouldn’t choose this one.
Specifications of iPhone SE
- 4-inch Retina Display
- A9 processor, M9 co-processor with support for always-on ‘Hey Siri’ feature
- 12-megapixel iSight camera with support for Live Photos and 4K video recording capabilities
- 5-megapixel FaceTime camera with Retina Flash
- 4G LTE support, VoLTE, Bluetooth 4.2
- iOS 9.3
- 1642 mAh battery
Why You Shouldn’t Buy the iPhone SE:
1) The Screen:
Yes, the screen itself! In today’s world screen size plays a major role in consumer’s choice. People watch movies, play games, stream live cricket matches (thanks to Hotstar). With people looking for bigger screen size, it is possible that the 4 inch is way too low.
2) Typing Space:
Statistics show that there are 47 billion users on popular social networking apps. In one way it has replaced SMS. So the problem with smaller screen is there will be frequent typing errors. People who are used to typing on a bigger pace, usually avoid buying a 4 inch phone. On the other hand, people are used to standard 5 inch screen size, if you plan to downgrade to a 4 inch , you’re definitely gonna face typing problems.
3) The Cost:
This is a huge factor for most of you sitting there. Brands like Xiaomi offer so much within 10,000 INR. Even Samsung smartphones at a price range of 10,000 come with 5-inch AMOLED displays. Hence, 39000 for a 4 inch 16gb variant without any sd card or dual sim is totally going against the tide.
4) Cost of Accessories:
A leather case which is priced at whopping 39 USD. Buyers will surely go bonkers with this! Such cost for leather case of a 4 inch mobile is next to madness.
5) The Design:
Nothing new has been seen as far as the design aspect, it looks the same as the iPhone 5S. So you’re actually paying for the same old design.
Still if you’re an Apple fan, you can always go for the iPhone 6/6S which is much near to the price of iPhone SE. Also for android, you can surely go ahead for the Samsung Galaxy S7 with VR headset or the Xiaomi Mi5. There are so much of alternatives available out there, you just need to find the one that is made for you.
