Reviewing Apple's iPhone SE 3, a more inexpensive 2022 model that also feels like an antique, with detailed opinions on the camera, gaming performance, battery life, and more. For about a month, I've been using the 3rd generation iPhone SE 2022, and here's why you shouldn't buy it!
Prepare to be disappointed if you were looking for a smartphone camera experience similar to the 13 Series devices. When the lighting isn't ideal, photo and video quality suffers, yet the iPhone SE 3 is capable of handling modest home videos and the like. The battery life is also a major disappointment. Because my little smartphone was nearly depleted, I found myself stuck in battery saver mode most evenings. You do, however, get wireless charging.
The iPhone SE 3 2022 delivers excellent performance, albeit it does become hot while playing games like Genshin Impact. You also have the most recent iOS 15 with the promised improvements. Unfortunately, there's more bad news for movie buffs: the little display has ancient IPS technology, with weak contrast and color reproduction when compared to several competitors. The cheapest iPhone SE 2022 comes with only 64GB of storage, no expandability, and no headphone jack, among other features.
Overall, the iPhone SE 3 is a bad value for money, despite its low price. What are your thoughts on this?
