Apple iPhone SE Hong Kong

The Powerful 4-inch iPhone

Small phones do not necessarily have to be insufficient in terms of processing power. Many people opt for a smaller and compact smartphone because it is undoubtedly easier to handle and manage in everyday situations and usage. They want something that is smaller and still incredibly powerful to handle everyday tasks and more. The iPhone SE achieves that, and more.

The iPhone SE sports an incredibly familiar design to those who are familiar with the iPhone legacy. The iPhone SE is quite simply the internal hardware and specifications of the iPhone 6S, but placed in the body and design of what is known to be one of the best iPhones ever made, the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S – it shares the exact same dimensions too.

A Familiar Design

The iPhone SE's beautiful design is crafted from bead-blasted aluminum to create an unbelievable satin-like finish with matte chamfers. The Apple logo on the rear of the iPhone SE is an inset stainless steel piece, able to maintain its shine and glory through many daily uses. It may feel slippery, but its such an incredibly compact smartphone that you will have no problem holding it firmly in one hand.

The Power of an iPhone 6S

The iPhone SE uses the very same powerful and efficient Apple A9 64-bit chip that is found in the iPhone 6S. The A9 chipset delivers outstanding performance in speed and responsiveness during your day to day usage of your smartphone. Your applications open quickly and switching between them is simply a breeze. Your games deliver immersive console-like graphics capabilities and play with superb fluidity. It’s a level of power that is never before seen on a 4-inch smartphone.

iSight Camera

Similar like the internal components, the iSight camera on the iPhone SE is the very exact same camera module that is found on the iPhone 6S. Its incredibly quick and captures great high quality images and High Definition (1080p) video. You can also create Live Photos with the camera, which are quite simply very short videos with movement and sound, giving your memories a whole new life.

The front facing camera also allows you to have great video calls through the Apple FaceTime application. Your friends and family will be able to see your face clearly and you can see theirs on the great Retina display.

The iPhone SE is the newest iPhone from Apple. It looks like an old iPhone because it really is — it has the iPhone 5/5S' body with all the horsepower found on the previous iPhone 6S. So yeah, it has a 4-year old design but don't let the looks fool you, i...
