Apple iPhone SE hidden ace: better battery life than iPhone 5s and 6s

The Apple iPhone SE is here and it has a hidden ace up its sleeve: battery life.

While there is no official info just yet about the actual capacity of the 4-inch iPhone's battery, Apple has provided the official battery life numbers and the iPhone SE beats not only the iPhone 5s that it succeeds, but also the more expensive iPhone 6s.

The biggest gains of up to 30% you'd see come in battery life while browsing and watching video, while for audio and 3G talk time the numbers between the iPhone SE and iPhone 6s are identical.

We have put together a table to show you the difference between the iPhone SE, iPhone 6s and iPhone 5s battery life (in hours) right below:
