Ten reasons to buy a 2020 Apple iPhone SE

Many have been waiting for the 2020 iPhone SE and dreaming about what this device will become. For me, this model looks like it is divorced from market realities, but in this material, I carefully and meticulously collected all the arguments for buying this device. Some of them you shared in your comments. Let's take a look at what's in the 2020 iPhone SE that might make you want to buy it.

Reason #1. The most affordable, anti-crisis iPhone in the current line

The iPhone SE is priced at Rs. Among the latest models from Apple, this is the most affordable iPhone, the cost of the current line starts from 60 thousand rubles. The price of being able to join the world of Apple and get a new smartphone from the latest is now not as high as it used to be. And this is one of the strongest arguments in favor of the iPhone SE, many buyers will choose it for this reason - the cheapest iPhone on the market. Everything else fades into the background.

For those who consciously choose the iPhone, this device can be a good choice for the first iPhone for a child. Or they buy it because they need an iPhone, but there is no money for older models.

Reason #2. Compact phone for calls

Not everyone needs smartphones that can do everything in the world. Many people continue to use their phone to make calls, send some messages, and make minimal use of other features. For them, such a dialer from Apple has undoubted advantages: it is a well-known brand (no one will accuse you of saving money on your phone), the brand has a certain image component (iPhone buyers are provided, they don’t count money, in the end, they are given loans in banks). And a fairly compact device for calls, which is the iPhone SE, is suitable for such people. Other manufacturers try to give the maximum number of possibilities so that everyone chooses what he needs. At Apple, these features are cut as much as possible so that the device does not distract from the main one, and the main thing here is just calls and nothing more.

Reason #3. Fingerprint sensor on the front! No face unlock

Apple once popularized the fingerprint sensor, but then abandoned it in favor of facial recognition. Now we see that the most inexpensive iPhone has abandoned face recognition and returned the fingerprint sensor. This is done to please conservative consumers, those who cannot get used to modern technology prefer to do it the old fashioned way. It should be noted that finger unlocking works faster and more reliably in iPhone, this is a method that outperforms face unlocking. Considering that all new iPhones lack this method, this model compares favorably.

Reason #4. Apple's latest and fastest processor

Small screen diagonal, low resolution do not require special performance from the chipset. But Apple did not save money and put its latest chipset, the A13 Bionic, into this device. For those who are accustomed to measure the results of synthetic tests, this is an absolute gift - a low screen resolution and a powerful processor work wonders, the device shows excellent numbers in virtual parrots. This is another reason to proudly kick Android and note that he will never be able to do this. Which is true, since finding such screens on Android smartphones is extremely difficult, if not impossible.

Reason #5. water resistant - IP67 standard

For flagships, water protection has de facto become the standard, but simpler models cannot boast of it. And here the iPhone SE compares favorably with many models on the market, this protection is fully present. For those who like to talk in the bathroom (never leave the device on charge!), This is an additional insurance against water ingress. And here we can say that SE is good, you don’t have to worry about water. This is especially suitable for everyone who goes hiking, but at the same time does not particularly take pictures there, uses the phone for calls. In this capacity, SE is also sufficient.

Reason #6. IPS display instead of OLED screen

All modern flagships, including the iPhone, are equipped with OLED displays, this began in the days of the iPhone X. Loyal Apple fans have long argued that OLED displays are terrible and bad, they have the worst performance possible, but IPS on the contrary, it is ideal. Not everyone managed to switch their minds to the fact that OLED suddenly turned out to be not so bad, they are still captive to these misconceptions today. For such people, the IPS matrix in the SE is the only choice, they can be sure that their screen is not like in the flagships and it is not so “harmful”. This is also part of the perception of the product. Also, many people believe that screens should not have any cutouts for cameras hidden in camera screens and bezels on all sides are desirable. Healthy conservatism that supports Apple and makes it possible to get such a product.

Reason #7. Apple's ecosystem is the best system on the planet

If you have an iPhone, then you will definitely buy a place in iCloud, you will use other services of the company. For example, it's nice to watch TV shows on Apple TV +, a one-year subscription will be free for you when you buy SE. At the same time, tighten up the language, since there are subtitles in Russian. They say that Apple's ecosystem is very simple, understandable and suitable for anyone. It's hard for me to judge how important it is in a phone for calls, but it certainly pleases those who choose SE in this capacity.

Reason #8. Long term software updates, three years minimum

Apple constantly releases new versions of iOS, they fix bugs, introduce new ones, in a word, work is in full swing and gives the user the feeling that they have not forgotten about him. This is extremely important, since in Android this feeling is not so clearly expressed, firmware is released, updated, but there is no feeling of concern for the user. Remember, as in the old phrase: wooden toys are the same, but do not please. It's the same here, it seems that something is being updated, but there is no joy. On iOS, this joy is very much, since the devices work much faster with each firmware, at least those who single out this advantage as a reason for buying an iPhone say so. It is worth joining this magic and convincing yourself that everything works faster than before.

Reason #9. The only smartphone for conservative people

If you have an iPhone 4/5/6/7/SE, you are used to the size of the device, you do not want to change anything, then the new 2020 SE will suit you. You are disgusted by the growth of the diagonal of the screen, you do not like the fact that now they put a lot of memory into the devices and make big batteries, it annoys you. I am sure that the iPhone SE 2020 is for you and will not disappoint you in any way - a small battery, an old charger that has been used for many years. Everything is exactly the way you are used to and love. And you can close your eyes to the presence of wireless charging, it still does not require attention and is not visible to you. Nothing causes irritation, everything is familiar and good, about the same as five or six years ago. This is a great phone for those who slowly get used to the new, stay true to old habits.

Reason #10. The Apple brand is luxury for the elite!

Android smartphones are chosen by rogues, this is a well-known fact for some Apple fans. Only the Apple brand is able to ensure the correct positioning of a person in the eyes of others from the first moment you meet, when you take your phone out of your pocket, to show who you are and what you are. Not just a person who came with some Chinese, but a person with an iPhone. Probably, it was necessary to write the word "Man" that way. On the other hand, iPhone users are democratic and mention that they made their right choice, not very often, about ten times a day during the first months of using the device. This is a kind of club of interests, where you will find friends who share your views on life, society, choice of products.

On Tuesday, we will publish "10 reasons against buying an iPhone SE 2020", I think that this material will also be interesting, as always, we consider the situation from two sides. This text is as loyal as possible to the iPhone SE and its capabilities, I sincerely tried to find strengths in this product and mentioned them all, I didn’t seem to forget anything. But if you forgot, then do not blame me, in the comments you can pour out your anger or other emotions.
