The 2020 iPhone SE is a worthy replacement of its predecessor. It's compact, powerful and cheap, which makes it perfect for almost any user that isn't phased by multi-camera setups and massive OLED displays. Sure, it's far from perfect with its small battery and thick bezels, but the combination of Apple's top-notch build quality and iOS that will keep this phone running smoothly for years to come make it an extremely tempting choice.
