Key Features

  •  Serious performance skillsThere’s the same A15 Bionic chip as the iPhone 13 Pro, making this the fastest phone at its price
  •  Dinky dimensionsThis is one of the smallest and lightest phones around


The iPhone SE 2022 is Apple’s most affordable 5G device, and it comes packing some of the same tech you’ll find in the far more expensive iPhone 13 Pro.

This is a phone aimed at people who are still using a previous generation iPhone SE, or anything older than an iPhone 8, and it offers notable upgrades on those ageing devices in multiple areas.

With an A15 Bionic chipset, many of the camera software features that make the iPhone 13 Pro one of the best camera phones and handy extras like wireless charging and water resistance, the iPhone SE 2022 could be seen as a bargain.

But does an old design and cramped display hamper the experience? Let’s have a deeper look and see how it performed during our lab and real world tests.
