The iPhone SE 2020 features the same physical footprint and 4.7" LCD display however boasts an upgraded A13 Bionic chip and 4-core GPU graphics, when compared to the iPhone 8.
If you want the power of an iPhone X or XR with the classic security of Touch ID, the iPhone SE 2020 is a great and affordable option.
These devices are in great condition, show minimal signs of wear, iOS Battery Health above 85%, and a one year warranty.
iPhone SE 2020 - Speed & Battery Life Improvements
The iPhone SE 2020 is a great upgrade to the SE 2016, and it does not hold back with a 1,820mAh battery as well as wireless charging which is the same as the iPhone 8, albeit with a faster processor. Many customers would expect a bigger battery for a newer phone, and that is understandable, but given the price difference ($200-300 in most cases) for the improvements in speed and reliability.
iPhone SE 2020 Camera Specs - Is It Worth It?
While you are not getting a full 4GB of RAM with the choice to go with an SE 2020, you are definitely not giving up much when it comes to the camera. The iPhone 11 does have dual-rear cameras but the 12MP single rear camera does offer optical image stabilization, and 4K 60FPS video recording.
Give Up Screen Size, Get Speed
The SE 2020 uses almost exactly the same screen as the iPhone 8. It's a 4.7" IPS LCD with 625 nits of brightness with 3D touch enabled. Considering it's a 2020 Apple release, it is less than you'd expect but you are saving quite a bit, and the screen specs are not the main selling point of this specific device.
iPhone SE 2020 - Refurbished, Used or Certified Pre-Owned in Winnipeg - Free Shipping across Canada.
The value of the SE 2020 has only increased as we enter 2022, with the price becoming very competitive in secondary markets and as an alternative to the speed of an iPhone 11 - with Touch ID still an option.
The phone was very popular with corporate accounts, who promptly trade the device in towards the next model - often in bulk. The pricing discount trickles down and has made for great deals for those looking for a fast phone in 2022 and beyond at a very reasonable price point.
In addition, replacing the screen, battery or charge port - all components that can break easily or wear down over time, are cost-effective and easy to replace. Used iPhone SE 2020 prices in Canada are not far off from the iPhone 8 so for many, they will end up paying marginally more for what ends up being a faster, newer and more polished cell phone.
In the end whether you need an affordable Touch ID-enabled smartphone, or are looking to repair a broken screen on a SE 2020, we're here to help!
