iPhone SE is BETTER than iPhone 12 Mini! We give you SEVEN reasons as to why
iPhone SE is a better deal than the iPhone 12 Mini when you look at a couple of basic factors. Here is what.
iPhone SE 2022 or the year-old iPhone 12 Mini? If you have got less than Rs. 50,000 to spend on an iPhone and the size factor is crucial, it is very easy to get stuck choosing between these two. The iPhone SE is the newest iPhone from Cupertino that imparts the retro vibes and comes in with a good price. The iPhone 12 mini is over a year old by now and for a little more, you get almost the same experience as the iPhone 12.
But which one should you choose? One has a new yet retro design, whereas the other one is newer but over a year old. It all depends on preferences but we lay down some of the basics to help you choose the perfect one for you needs. And, it seems the iPhone SE is the one that suits the best for most people. Find out why.
iPhone SE is better than iPhone 12
The iPhone SE 2022 at the moment starts at a price of Rs. 43,990 and over the next few months, it will only get cheaper. The iPhone 12 mini starts at a price of Rs. 49,999 and even under the best of sale offers, the price is likely not going to dive under Rs. 45,000. Hence, you are always saving more with the iPhone SE.
The A15 Bionic chip on the iPhone SE is faster and superior in performance than the A14 chip on the iPhone 12 Mini. Most buyers are less likely to see any performance differences but it is always nicer to know that you have got more performance to tap.
Longer iOS support
That new A15 Bionic chip also guarantees at least six more years of iOS update, if not more. The A14 in the iPhone 12 mini will get a year less of iOS support.
More comfortable to hold
The curvy sides on the iPhone SE are always more comfortable on the palms than the sharp and flat sides on the iPhone 12 Mini. Moreover, those coming from an iPhone 8 or older will always find this form factor more familiar.
Speaking of familiarity, the Home button on the iPhone SE makes for an easier and fuss-free navigation system. It holds the Touch ID fingerprint scanner, which again is more convenient than the Face ID system on a daily basis.
Photographic Styles in Camera
The A15 chip from the iPhone 13 also brings the Photographic Styles feature from the latter. Hence, despite having the same old camera sensor, the iPhone SE allows you to have different photography profiles, something which the iPhone 12 mini isn't getting anyway.
The iPhone SE will be readily available whereas the iPhone 12 mini stocks are rare. Flipkart only offers a few colours variants and you have to shell more to get the colour of your choice on the Mini via the Apple Online Store.
