Apple has released its iPhone SE in March 2016, while the iPhone 6s has arrived in September 2015, alongside the Plus version. The iPhone SE is similar to the iPhone 5S in terms of design, but just as powerful as the iPhone 6S. Today we will compare these two handsets and let you decide which one suits your needs better.


The iPhone SE measures 123.8×58.6×7.6mm and weights 113 grams. As we were saying in the introduction, the device looks just like an iPhone 5S, only that Apple has used matte-chamfered edges and the Apple logo is made of a color-matched stainless steel. On the other hand, the iPhone 6s is slimmer and heavier as it measures 138.3×67.1×7.1mm and weights 143 grams, but its rear panel has thin lines at the top and bottom, for hiding the radio antennas.


The iPhone SE comes with a LED-backlit IPS LCD display of 4-inch that supports a resolution of 1136×640 pixels at 326 ppi. The iPhone 6s has a bigger LED-backlit LCD display of 4.7-inch that supports a higher resolution of 1334×750 pixels at 326 ppi.

Processors, Graphics Cards & RAM

Both devices come with an A9 chipset, a dual-core Twister processor clocked at 1.84GHz, a PowerVR GT7600 graphics card (six-core) and 2GB of RAM.


The iPhone SE has been released in two internal storage variants of 16GB and 64GB, while the iPhone 6S comes in three internal storage variants of 16GB, 64GB and 128GB. Unfortunately, you can’t expand the storage on these two handsets as they don’t offer a card slot for that.


Both the iPhone SE and iPhone 6S have a primary camera of 12MP with autofocus, dual-LED flash, phase detection autofocus, geo-tagging, face detection and touch focus, but while the former has the old weak 1.2MP front camera, the latter has an upgraded secondary camera of 5MP.


Both devices feature non-removable batteries, but the 1624 mAh one found on the iPhone SE is less powerful than the 1715 mAh battery that’s powering the iPhone 6s.
