iPhone SE vs iPhone 6 Comparison

How do the iPhone 6 and iPhone SE compare?

The iPhone SE was released when the iPhone 6 was discontinued, so some might say it was made to fill the place of the iPhone 6. It’s true they have some similarities, but there are also differences. Want to find out which model is best for you?

iPhone SE - a compact budget phone

There’s a lot of love out there for the iPhone SE. As budget phones go (the SE costed around £359 on release), you get your money’s worth, and it’s one of the few phones around that’s truly easy for one-handed use - especially if you have smaller hands. It measures 123.8 by 58.6 mm and weighs just 4 ounces. Clearly, this means a smaller screen size (4 inches). Another thing people liked about the iPhone SE is that it still has a home button, making it easy to navigate and pretty intuitive if you are used to the older iPhone models. As for tech, it has the same processor as the iPhone 6, but camera-wise Apple has taken it up a notch with a 12 MP compared to 8 MP for the iPhone 6.

iPhone 6 - Apple’s first bigger screen phone

The iPhone 6 is just a few months older than the SE, first released in 2015, but it was on the higher-priced phone (£539 on release), so is it worth the money? Well, it has a bigger screen for starters – 4.7 inches, and while that might not seem like much, it makes a difference. This model measures 138.1 by 67 mm and weighs 4.55 ounces. A pretty nice compromise – it certainly offers one-handed use for some. It also still has a home button. The finish on the iPhone 6 is sleeker, with rounded edges compared to the flat ones on the iPhone SE, and it generally has the look and feel of a pricier phone.

Which should I buy the iPhone SE or the iPhone 6?

In terms of capabilities, these two phones are very similar, and in the end, your decision will be down to appearance, screen size, and camera. What works for you? What do you use your phone for? If you want to watch a lot of videos or play games, then you probably want the larger screen, but if you carefully curate hundreds of Insta-worthy pics a month, then pick the iPhone SE.
