From the onset, Apple has been one of the smartphone companies that produce the best. Yeah, you can read that again, one of the best. This owes to the fact that they produce their phones, pads, pods and other gadgets on their own. Apple phones run on their own OS, iOS and stands out with several other unique features making their products stand out and rather on the expensive side. In this review, we’ll be discussing a recent phone released by Apple, the Apple iPhone SE 2020.
The first time that Apple released an iPhone SE (the original version) was in March, 2016 which was three years after the release of the Apple iPhone 5s. Then, the iPhone SE original looked just like the iPhone 5s, in build, in display, and then the original iPhone SE had the same processor with the flagship at that time.
