iPhone SE design

The iPhone follows the line SE model 5S, although with some nuances that differentiate them.How it looks and how you feel this Smartphone Apple limited dimensions?

IPhone SE, filed on March 21, 2016, was a surprise to many due to return to the classic 4 inches screen, but that does not prevent its owner can enjoy it comfortably. At the end of the day , there are many who want the benefits of an iPhone 6S, but in a body more content in action.

iPhone SE, the most powerful 4‑inch phone ever. To create it, we started with a beloved design, then reinvented it from the inside out.

This Smartphone, already with IOS 9.3.1 available, has nothing to envy Apple mobile widescreen, and even going ahead in something as basic as portability and ease of operation. Would you be able to type a message with one hand using an iPhone 6S Plus?

Glass and aluminum in harmony

This terminal takes up the design of the iPhone 5 / 5S, although differential saving details such as the central button with fingerprint sensor and a subsequent flash True Tone. Why not rely on something that has already worked? This device is still very solid and good setting of all materials used for its construction shows.

On the front side we will find a good glass panel, which is easy to keep clean with a soft cloth.The screen 10.3 cm diagonal, has side frames less than 3 mm, and upper and lower frames of 1.6 cm thick. You have optimized space? Undoubtedly.

The FaceTime camera lens has diagonal 0.2 mm, while the handset occupies an amplitude of 0.9 cm. At the bottom, in a centered position, it is the central circular button has a 0.9 cm diagonal and is guarded by a thin metal washer: own the iPhone, which integrates fingerprint sensor.

To flip the phone, you can still enjoy excellence in design and good quality finishes, year after year, it characterizes the devices engineered in California. The back side brings 81% of the surface is glossy polished aluminum , cold and soft touch, leaving margins at the mercy of a material that closely studied, it seems to be some kind of plastic: the light is reflected well on the surface, but difficult to appreciate if they have been minor scratches.

The emblem of Apple  stands at the back, with a color matching the phone and occupying an area of 1.2 cm x 1.6 cm: the logo is made of stainless steel and has a just mirror effect.

Apple did not neglect an important detail when designing one of his last jewelry that to protect the integrity of the iSight camera has been used sapphire crystal : with this damage that may be caused on this surface is delayed and therefore , the sharpness of photos and videos taken with the phone is guaranteed.

 

The body in one piece iPhone SE continues in the profile , virtually all also made of brushed satin aluminum, except for the four bands of almost 0.1 cm thick strategically located near the corners.We will not find with a curved body but straight cut which, while not being ergonomic, helps a good clamping Mobile: profile has a thickness of 7.6 mm, with the four corners with a remarkable round.

The three buttons we are metallic, bring a firm course and show mettle by clicking on them: the two that will be used to adjust the sound volume are located well with the sense of touch .

On the other hand, I think it’s great that Apple continues to rely on a physical mechanism dedicated to silence the sounds with a simple gesture. What we have found on the underside of the product? The two connections, the microphone and speaker, and two precision screw to access the inside of the device.

 

Why deploy the headphone socket on the underside? It makes all the sense in the world from a practical point of view. When you save the iPhone in the pocket of a trouser or inside pocket of a jacket, then more natural again grab the terminal: you will not need to make any other “strange” gesture to guide the phone and, therefore, there will be no risk of no longer hold firmly ( reducing the risk of falling to the ground).

The Apple iPhone SE sticks to the design of the iPhone 5S, rather than stepping over to the newer unibody design of the iPhone 6

There are up to sixteen holes in the area where it is incorporated speaker Smartphone although both left not transmit sound. In my opinion, Apple has done a great job with the design of this iPhone speaker, enjoying himself a powerful, clear and well balanced in the mix of treble, midrange and bass sound.

Finally, and as you can see in the vast majority of phones with body in one piece, it will be necessary to use a special tool to remove the lateral tray concealed on the right side: in it should stay alone the nano SIM card. Recall that the iPhone does not allow, even today.

Comfort of handling difficult match

In a world dominated by phone with screens between 5 and 5.5 inches, the iPhone is a relief for those users who, without wanting to give up the high performance, go for devices of reduced size. What do you get with it? After several days of testing and daily use, I have been reunited with the confidence that gives one back to grab a super compact product.

The iPhone, with a light weight of 113 grams, has sent me a  safety management hundred percent to grab him to make calls, use it to send messages with one hand out of his pocket again and again, and fasten with two fingers in the air as he moved some nerve. There are few devices that I have not had some qualms about the possibility that precipitate to the ground.

My hand can almost completely cover the body of the iPhone SE, being more sheltered than larger devices. I like that feeling of confidence when using such a small phone and at the same time as functional in those core activities for my day as a journalist and fan of gadgets.

 

Can you do something to enhance the user experience? Yes, buy the official Apple case, genuine leather and available in several colors. This accessory provides more “grip” and therefore more reliability is obtained even in the grip, nullifying the effect of aluminum sliding itself: the phone is perfectly fitted with connections and openings completely online.
