Apple iPhone SE CNET Editor's Review


THE GOOD Packs nearly every worthwhile feature (processor, great camera, Apple Pay, always-on Siri) from iPhone 6S into a smaller, more affordable 4-inch phone. Compatible with all iPhone 5/5S cases and accessories.

THE BAD Selfie cam doesn't get a megapixel upgrade, and there's no 3D Touch. Older design, while still good-looking, is exactly like the older iPhone 5S. Mid-year release means another iPhone will be coming sooner than later.

THE BOTTOM LINE While the rest of us wait for the iPhone 7 later this year, the iPhone SE is a great choice for small phone fans looking for an 'iPhone 6S Mini.'
