Small iPhone SE gets a big boost where it matters

In Phones by Ramon Lopez0 Comments

DID you hear about Apple announcing a bunch of new products recently? You didn’t? We can’t blame you; we almost didn’t, either. And it’s not like you missed a lot of exciting new toys, er, gadgets (sorry, iPad). Unless, of course, you’ve been pining for a gasp-out-loud red iPhone from Apple.

Or you’re seriously considering getting an Apple iPhone SE anytime soon. Because if you’re in the market to snag one of the best compact smartphones out there, now is the perfect time to make a move, as the iPhone SE is more compelling than ever. It’s not because of faster specs or sharper cameras — or a new lick of paint.

The smallest iPhone available has gotten a big boost in storage options of 32GB and 128GB, from 16GB and 64GB of the original models — without costing a peso more than before. And considering Apple’s general distaste for expandable memory, this is news indeed.

The Apple iPhone SE has gotten a big boost in storage options of 32GB and 128GB, from 16GB and 64GB of the original models — without costing a peso more than before.

The prices in the Philippines remain the same, meaning 32GB or 128GB of memory will run you P23,590 (around $470) and P29,590 (roughly $589), respectively. Both versions go on sale March 24th in the U.S. They’re currently listed as unavailable online (on the Philippine Apple Store).

Beyond having more space for your apps, offline movies and TV shows, and whatnot, the iPhone SE is still very much the same phone inside and out. That said, expect an iPhone 5s clone with some leftover internal hardware from the iPhone 6s, including a nippy Apple A9 processor and a dependable 12-megapixel rear camera.

The only possible minor grievances are that there’s no waterproofing and the screen size isn’t for everyone — certainly not for Netflix bingers and obsessive gamers. However, as far as pint-sized premium handsets with plenty of storage go, you can do a lot worse than what Apple has on offer.
