Some people just have to have the latest and greatest. These are the folks we see camped out in front of the Apple Store the night before a new iPhone is launched. Many don’t mind shelling out $1000 for a new device. Others would rather save a few bucks to get current, if not cutting-edge, technology. Apple’s new iPhone SE 2nd Generation targets this second group—the tech-savvy but reasonably frugal. With iPhone’s current budget device, the iPhone 8, having launched in September of 2017, the frugal have waited quite a while. The wait is finally over—the iPhone SE 2nd Generation is here.
What It's Got
The new iPhone SE is similar to the iPhone 8 with a couple important upgrades. It shares its chipset (motherboard, basically) with the iPhone 11. The base iPhone SE 2nd Generation comes with 32GB of storage and a 64GB model is available. The best feature, of course, is the price. At just $400, the 2nd Generation iPhone SE is $50 less than the iPhone 8 and under half the price of the iPhone 11 Pro.
What It's Not
Naturally, Apple had to make a few compromises to make this price possible. The iPhone SE 2nd Generation comes with Touch ID, rather than the more convenient Face ID. The camera is a single-lens unit, so it lacks some of the higher-end features of the dual- and triple-lens cameras. Lastly, screen resolution is the same as the iPhone 8—750 x 1334.
Even with a few compromises, the iPhone SE 2nd Generation is a great deal. $400 is $400, though, and everyone can use the extra peace of mind of having their new device protected. Fortunately, BodyGuardz has developed a whole line of protective products for the new iPhone. The new products include iPhone SE screen protectors, cases, and phone skins.
