Comparing SE against 6 to crown a winner is a cakewalk, well it’s obvious as you are up against a device which is not just old but 6 years older! But not to forget, when 6 was launched it was the most advanced device of its time plus its ruggedness made it a clear choice for a compact smartphone. Thanks to Apple, it carried out all the core strengths of 6 to SE and packed it with the most up to date features such as A13 Bionic chip processor, 12MP rear camera (supporting portrait mode), dual SIM (e-sim) and much-needed water resistance panel along with other interesting features. SE stands out as an obvious winner.

Wrapping up, iPhone SE is not the most feature-packed phone from Apple yet neither did they claim so. Looking at the phone’s segment and target customers, including users of the iPhone 6 (With an expected starting price of Rs. 42,500 for 64 GB) Apple is looking to break in the budget territory which it hardly managed to do in the past.
