Well guys, Apple finally has an iPhone that is actually affordable. The iPhone SE retails for $429.99. To put that number in context, the basic iPhone 14 retails for $799.99, a whopping $300 more than what you would pay for an iPhone SE. You would assume that the iPhone SE would feel $300 less valuable than the iPhone 14, but the two phones are more comparable than you'd think.
Both the iPhone SE and iPhone 14 have the same A13 Bionic chipset, which is future-talk for "the phone runs well and the camera looks good." Basically, even though the iPhone SE looks like an older iPhone model with its smaller screen and home screen button (which I missed), it will run similarly to an iPhone 14, making it one of the best cheap smartphones on the market today.

The catch-22 with the A13 Bionic chipset is that all its power drains your battery, and the iPhone SE doesn't have the best battery in the world. Don't expect the iPhone SE battery to last you through the day, especially if you like streaming YouTube videos and checking Instagram on the go. You'll probably want to keep a charger handy if you'll be out and about for an extended amount of time.
The iPhone SE is compatible with any carrier you can think of, which is another point it has over the Galaxy A50. Here are some of our favorite cell phone plans that are compatible with iPhone SE.
