Apple has released its iPhone 5s back in 2013, and we thought that this is going to be the last 4-inch iPhone, but there were many fans who asked the American company to bring another small-sized smartphone. Their prayers were listened, because Apple has released a mini iPhone 6S which was called iPhone SE. Today we’re going to compare these two 4-inch iPhones and you’ll decide which one is worth purchasing.


The iPhone 5S measures 123.8×58.6×7.6mm and weights 112 grams. The iPhone SE measures 123.8×58.6×7.6mm and weights 113 grams. However, although the iPhone SE has the same internal specs as the iPhone 6S, on the outside is identical to the iPhone 5S, meaning that it has an aluminum back with matte edges, the body is boxier, not curved, on the right side are the volume buttons and the power button sits on the top.


Both devices come with a LED-backlit IPS LCD display of 4-inch that supports a resolution of 1136×640 pixels at 326 ppi.

Processors, Graphics Cards & RAM

The iPhone 5S features an Apple A7 chipset, a dual-core Cyclone CPU clocked at 1.3GHz, a PowerVR G6430 graphics card and 1GB of RAM. On the other hand, the iPhone SE comes with an Apple A9 chipset, a dual-core Twister CPU clocked at 1.84GHz, a PowerVR GT7600 graphics card and 2GB of RAM.


The iPhone 5S has been released in three internal storage variants of 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. The iPhone SE comes with two internal storage variants of 16GB and 64GB. Unfortunately, none of the devices feature a card slot for storage expansion. With other words, you should think twice about the storage when you purchase any of these two handsets.


The iPhone 5S sports a primary camera of 8MP (located on the rear side of the handset) that features autofocus, dual-LED flash, touch focus, geo-tagging, face detection, panorama, HDR and a secondary camera of 1.2MP (found on the front side of the device). The iPhone SE has a primary camera of 12MP that features dual-LED flash, autofocus, geo-tagging, face detection, HDR, panorama and a secondary camera of 1.2MP.


The iPhone 5S has been released with a non-removable battery of 1560 mAh, which is slightly less powerful than the 1642 mAh non-removable battery of the new iPhone SE handset.
