Is iPhone SE really better than the iPhone 6S?

Apple launched the new iPhone SE on March 21st 2016. We all know apple has always been little secretive about their new flagship. But now when we have seen the new iPhone for months here is an honest comparison, iPhone SE really better than iPhone 6s?

iPhone 6S VS iPhone SE
There are people who did not upgrade to the new 6 or the 6+ just because they were in the love with the stylish and elegant look that iPhone 5 and 5S gave us. Now when the apple came with new SE people finally upgraded.  Let us now look at the specs of the SE and as well as the 6S.

iPhone SE & iPhone 6s : Overview
iPhone SE specs:-
  • Display: 4-inch Retina HD display with 1136x640 resolution at 326 pixels per inch (ppi); 800 to 1 contrast ratio
  • Dimensions: 123.8mm x 58.6 mm x 7.6 mm

  • Rear camera: iSight camera. 12 MP photos. ƒ/2.2 aperture. 1080p video. True Tone flash.

  • NFC: yes 
Display and Design
iPhone SE has a 4inch display with 1136x640 resolution but as compared to 6s it: 4.7-inch display with a 1334x750-pixel resolution. According to resolution does not matter because se has a smaller screen according to which the resolution is perfect and 6S has a larger screen so it needs more of resolution for a perfect UI and display experience.


One thing the new SE is lacking of is 3D touch. What I have noticed is a person who is not that tech savvy and has iPhone 6S is not using 3D touch. If you are a person who does not cares about 3D touch iPhone SE is a better option.

Camera
The iPhone 6S takes things up a notch in the camera department offering a 12-megapixel rear snapper with 1.22µm pixels and a f/2.2 aperture. Video recording capabilities increase to 4K and the True Tone flash remains intact. The front camera also sees a bump to 5-megapixels and while the aperture remains at f/2.2, it comes with a Retina flash.


The iPhone SE opts for the same 12-megapixel rear sensor as the iPhone 6S, meaning it is capable of 4K video recording and Live Photos. It also means you get a fantastic camera in your pocket and it's a big leap from the iPhone 5S.

There is a 1.2-megapixel front camera with an aperture of f/2.4 however, so it doesn't take from the iPhone 6S here, aside from also offering a Retina flash. The lower resolution is evident in the performance, with images a little soft and lacking in detail.
Hardware and Processing
Both iPhone SE and 6S holds Apple’s 64bit A9 processor, M9 motion co-processor and 2GB RAM. It’s just that apple has stuffed power of 6S in a smaller 4 inch smart phone. The main problem that may incur is as the new SE is a small 4 inch device with power and processor of 6S, it may heat up pretty fast as compared to 6S.



Software
Both iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S both runs on iOS 9, as so does the iPhone SE. Ultimately, the iPhone SE offers almost the same experience as the iPhone 6 but with the addition of Live Photos. The one feature missing is the double-tap function that allows the top of the screen to be accessible with your thumb but as it is smaller, it's not really necessary.  

Cost and Conclusion

iPhone 6s is available for 47,499rs and iPhone SE is available for 37,999.
If you are budgeted up to 40k you can get iPhone SE with the power of iPhone 6S but if you can buy 6S or are using 6S. There is no point of changing to iPhone SE until and unless you are a fan of the old apple look.
