iPhone SE (2022) video review: A small phone with some big tricks

“There’s a lot going on in the world, so for many people, a touch of the familiar is a welcome part of their day. The iPhone SE is just that.”

Apple’s iPhone SE (2022) has been around for a couple of weeks now, sporting a brand new A15 processor and 5G for those who want a great budget phone that won’t break the bank and offers the familiarity of Apple’s iOS ecosystem.

While you might well have read our written iPhone SE (2022) review by Christine Romero-Chan, you may not have caught our video edition from Tshaka Armstrong!

Watch as Tshaka breaks down the iPhone SE’s camera, does a battery life test, runs you through day-to-day usage of the phone, deep dives Deep Fusion and Smart HDR 4, and takes you through cool new features like Live Text. There’s even a look at gaming on the iPhone SE!

The verdict?

There’s a lot going on in the world, so for many people, a touch of the familiar is a welcome part of their day. The iPhone SE is just that. It keeps Touch ID, and many things iPhone users love like its small size while adding some new tricks.

While it does have a more dated design, the iPhone SE remains the best iPhone for those on a budget, especially folks who just want to pick up an iPhone and use it until it doesn’t work anymore. It definitely isn’t for serial upgrades or those who want Apple’s very best camera and display technology, or for those who have moved on from the world of Touch ID.


Bottom line: For what it’s worth, the iPhone SE (2022) is a fantastic value if you’re willing to make some sacrifices in features.
