It’s iPhone announcement day, and while the iPhone SE isn’t likely to be the right iPhone for everyone, its svelte 4-inch design and impressive specifications could make it a popular choice not just amongst those who don’t want something as large as an iPhone 6s or 6s Plus, but also those who simply don’t want to spend premium smartphone money on a new iPhone.
The thing with Apple’s iPhone lineup post-iPhone SE is that the decision between handsets no longer has to come down to whether you want the latest and greatest features or not. With the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c now gone, no iPhone currently on sale finds itself lagging too far behind the flagships when it comes to feature or performance. That alone almost allows iPhone buyers to make their purchasing decision on screen size, though there are some minor differences between the iPhone SE, iPhone 6s/6 and iPhone 6s Plus/6 Plus that people should be aware of.
As an example, the iPhone SE does not feature the 3D Touch displays on offer by the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, and the iPhone 6s does not have the Optical Image Stabilization that the iPhone 6s Plus’s camera can boast. Not huge differences, but differences nevertheless.
Apple makes a decent job of ensuring buyers know what they are spending their money on by having a comprehensive iPhone comparison table on its website, which we’ve embedded for you to peruse. It’s a big table, and one that should give everyone who’s looking to buy a new iPhone a good feel for what features they will be gaining, or losing, by choosing one iPhone over another.
But let’s be honest here, there’s no wrong decision when buying an iPhone right now – they’re all very, very good smartphones, and you now have three sizes to choose from.
iPhone SE Vs iPhone 6s Vs iPhone 6s Plus Vs iPhone 6 Vs iPhone 6 Plus
As for off-contract fully unlocked prices, iPhone SE starts at $399 for 16GB model compared to $650 for 16GB iPhone 6s, $750 for 16GB iPhone 6s Plus, $550 for 16GB iPhone 6, and $650 for 16GB iPhone 6 Plus.
