iPhone SE Features
This iPhone series is a little different from the rest, with different features depending on which generation (Gen) of iPhone SE you select.
iPhone SE 1st Gen
The first generation of the iPhone SE was released in 2016, and although Apple discontinued it in 2018, you can still snatch a refurbished iPhone SE 1st Gen from OzMobiles.
The iPhone SE 1st Gen was introduced as a more affordable alternative to the higher-end iPhones, designed for those who don’t need everything that a higher-end iPhone has.
One of the things that many users love about our refurbished iPhone SE 1st gen is the size and how it’s perfect for one-handed use. For this reason, those who prefer smaller phones are still buying them today.
The iPhone SE 1st Gen has the A9 chip and some features of the iPhone 6s but at a lower price point. Capabilities of the A9 chip include the M9 motion coprocessor, which connects to the accelerometer, compass and gyroscope for a range of fitness tracking capabilities.
The iPhone SE 1st Gen is also the first iPhone where you can activate Siri by simply saying, “Hey Siri,” without having to pick up your phone.
The iPhone SE 1st Gen is available in 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB.
The 12MP camera can capture sharp, detailed shots like the ones shot on the iPhone 6s. The camera features brilliant 4K video recording, which is up to four times the resolution of 1080p HD video, and has Live Photo capabilities, bringing your still photos to life with sound and movement.
iPhone SE 2nd Gen
The second instalment of this series, the iPhone SE 2nd Gen, was released in April 2020.
Don’t be fooled by the iPhone SE 2nd Gen’s age, as it’s still running the latest version of iOS and is still great! Running the latest version of iOS on a three-year-old phone means that you have access to many of the same features available on the latest iPhone.
After the success of the iPhone SE 1st Gen being an affordable alternative to high-end iPhones, Apple released the iPhone SE 2nd Gen four years on.
The iPhone SE 2nd Gen comes with the A13 CPU chip, which enables great battery life, provides unparalleled performance, and is perfect for photography, gaming and augmented reality experiences.
Other capabilities the A13 chip brings include utilising the single wide-angle lens Portrait Mode on the camera, as on the iPhone XR. It also features the next-generation Smart HDR-2 photos.
The A13 chip supports wireless charging and fast charging, giving customers up to 50% change in just 30 minutes.
The rear 12MP camera (single lens), is capable of recording 4K video, which means it records with extended dynamic range and cinematic video stabilisation. This allows videos to be smoother with better image quality.
With the iPhone SE 2nd Gen, you have the option to shoot your video at 24fps, 25fps, 30fps or 60fps.
The camera also has autofocus, optical image stabilisation and a quad-LED True Tone flash. True Tone was created as a solution to the unnatural and cold tones often resulting from mobile flash photography.
This phone can also take panoramas up to 63MP and shoot photos in burst mode.
iPhone SE 3rd Gen
Released in March 2022, the iPhone SE 3rd Gen is the latest model in the iPhone SE series. The iPhone SE 3rd Gen is quite a rare phone, as it’s the last of our refurbished iPhones that use the home button.
For those of us who are conscious of our footprint on the planet, the iPhone SE 3rd Gen contains 91% recycled rare earth materials, 100% recycled tungsten, at least 35% recycled plastic in various components, and 100% recycled tin in the solder of its main board. Buying refurbished also means you’re helping to keep devices out of landfills, a great benefit for the planet!
The refurbished iPhone SE 3rd Gen has the powerful A15 Bionic chip, the same chip as the iPhone 13, so its speed and performance are impressive.
The A15 chip enables great battery life, improved graphics, and a super improved camera.
The iPhone SE 3rd Gen is the only model in the SE series to have 5G connectivity.
From live-streaming to multiplayer gaming and video sharing, 5G really speeds things up. It even makes FaceTime in high definition and SharePlay feel smooth and seamless when you’re on the go. When you don’t need all of that speed, the iPhone shifts into Smart Data mode to preserve battery life.
The iPhone SE 3rd Gen and A15 chip bring an incredible camera.
Smart HDR 4 automatically refines the contrast, lighting and skin tones, ensuring everyone looks their best.
In mid to low light, Deep Fusion studies multiple exposures pixel by pixel to capture the subtlest details, textures and patterns in your final shot.
The enhanced video on this refurbished iPhone SE 3rd Gen device picks up so much detail, including contours, shadows and even highlights in the sunset.
The rear 12MP camera (single lens) is capable of recording 4K video. The camera also has autofocus, optical image stabilisation and a quad-LED True Tone flash.
The iPhone SE 3rd Gen features fast charging. It can charge up to 50% of its battery power in 30 minutes. Bear in mind, at OzMobiles we guarantee a minimum of 80% battery health on all our refurbished iPhones for your peace of mind.
The iPhone SE 3rd Gen features the familiar home button, a bonus for those who aren’t a fan of Face ID.
Touch ID makes unlocking your refurbished iPhone SE 3rd Gen simple and secure. After all, your fingerprint is the perfect password.
