Apple iPhone SE Review: It is Small, Fast, Charming And Does Not Empty Your Bank Account

This is truly the affordable iPhone you were waiting for. This does not compromise at all in terms of the specs and the experience. It is a thoroughbred iPhone, albeit in a compact form factor. Which also makes this a very rare combination of compact and powerful. How many Android phone options do you get which offer a similarly handy footprint and yet pack in the most powerful specifications there are at this time? The answer lies in a word that starts with “Z” and ends with “ero”. The second generation of the Apple iPhone SE is a melding of the past with the present, representative of the future.

The Apple iPhone SE prices start at Rs 42,500 and that is before you take advantage of an HDFC Bank cashback offer which brings the effective price down to Rs 38,900. For an iPhone that runs largely the same specs as an iPhone 11, that is a steal deal.

Apple iPhone SE

Design is familiar, and yet very likeable

There is no running away from the fact that the second-generation Apple iPhone SE is basically the same body as an Apple iPhone 8 from 2017. It may have been a good-looking phone then, but it’s a beautiful phone now. And that came after the iPhone 7, the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 6. There could perhaps have been the argument that Apple should have gone with the iPhone 8 Plus body instead, but that 5.5-inch size would have not appealed to anyone who wanted a compact phone and would have pegged it too close to the 6.1-inch iPhone 11 in the size stakes. Apple says that the 4.7-inch screen size has been its most popular, and continues to be its most popular screen size, over the years. There must be some merit in the argument that not everyone wants a bulky phone.

You could be on the other side of the fence and say that the design looks a bit out of place now, and you would have a point there. The thick bezel above the screen stands out now, and the space below the screen for the Touch ID fingerprint sensor integrated within the Home button does add to it vertically. But Apple will counter that with pristine build quality. It feels fantastic to hold, much thinner than what our hands have become used to, no rough edges, no flex and everything is just right in place. It weighs just 148 grams, which is featherweight category in these times. You can have this in three colours at this time—Black, White and the gorgeous (PRODUCT)RED.

It is IP67 water resistant which means it isn’t averse to getting a bit wet, and the glass on the back enables wireless charging as well in case that catches your fancy. Incidentally, it also supports fast charging, but Apple doesn’t bundle that charger this time around.

All said and done, this is a proper iPhone. The build. The design. The attention to detail. The experience. Need I also remind you that there are no good compact Android phones right now.

Home button: a blast from the past

The Home button had stopped being a physical button quite a while ago. Good to see Apple has carried that forward with that reassuring haptic feedback every time you press on it. Touch ID on the iPhone SE is fast, very fast.

The magic number on the canvas is 4.7

It also isn’t the same 4.7-inch display carried forward. Apart from all the under-the-hood improvements, you will surely notice the True Tone Display feature, which that matches everything you see on the screen with the ambient lighting around you. The result, as we have experienced with the MacBook, the iPhones and the iPad Pro is that there is much less strain on the eyes than otherwise. This screen is LCD, and not an OLED. In the real world, people really don’t care. As long as it works, they are happy. And this most definitely works. It is bright, shuns reflections quite well and colours look good too. Yes, you’ll probably feel it’s a bit more restrained if you are using a higher resolution display all this while, but the thing is, most iPhone SE buyers will likely be the ones who have held on to their older iPhones till now—and for them, this is familiar yet an upgrade.

That being said, if you do intend to switch from a larger phone to this, you will feel the keyboard is a bit more compressed than what you are used to. It is a learning curve, make no doubt about it.

Apple iPhone SE

It is Futureproof, including for iOS updates: Leaving Android far behind

Power isn’t in short supply either. And that is putting it diplomatically. The iPhone SE runs the same A13 Bionic chip as the iPhone 11 series, which means it isn’t playing catch up. There is no faster smartphone processor right now, all chipmakers considered, and that gives the iPhone SE a solid foundation to build on. It also means that iOS updates will be available for this phone for many years to come. That is immediately better than most Android phones, including the expensive flagships, which see the end of the update goodness after about 2 years. If you are lucky, that is.

We have come such a long way since the iPhone 8’s time, that the A13 Bionic chip is 1.4x faster than the A11 which powered that phone back in the day. And it is 2.4x faster than the original iPhone SE. The party piece of the A13 Bionic is the 8-core Neural Engine that does 5 trillion operations per second.

Battery life is a day, and comfortably so. A lot of that is limited by the physics of size, which means it doesn’t get a battery pack as large as an iPhone 11. But since there are less display pixels to light up, the tradeoff has worked well.

But you do miss out on some things: 5G and more

The iPhone SE doesn’t make the shift to USB C, nor does it show any love for the headphone jack. This does not have 5G as well, and Apple for some reason doesn’t bundle a faster charger in the box even though the iPhone SE is fast charging capable.

Camera relies on software: More than ever before

The 2020 iteration of the Apple iPhone SE gets a 12-megapixel camera at the back. Yes, it is a single-camera system. It does get a new image signal processor, the enhancements of the Neural Engine of the A13 Bionic and new algorithms working behind the scenes after you tap the shutter button in the camera app to take a photo. The biggest beneficiary has to be the Portrait Mode and Portrait Lighting. It is all software based, but the iPhone SE can take some really good portrait photos. The neural engine is trained to focus on people, and you get depth control as well. If you are wondering that this is already more versatile than the photography capabilities of the iPhone XR, which also has a single camera system, you would be absolutely right. It is not just the new hardware, but also updated algorithms and image processing that makes all the difference.

Apple iPhone SE-3

The full gamut of Portrait Lighting modes are available as well—Natural Light, Studio Light, Contour Light, Stage Light, Stage Light Mono and High-Key Light Mono are all available on the iPhone SE. Then there is Smart HDR as well and the ability to shoot 4K videos at 60fps. For the price that you pay for this iPhone SE, the photography performance is absolutely fantastic—great dynamic range, sharp, vivid colours that are well distinguished and overall photography that is quite close to the iPhone 11. It will struggle a bit in low light, because there isn’t a second sensor to provide more data, and there isn’t a night mode either. It’s a bit perplexing that, considering Google has managed better low light photos all thanks to AI and software, on single camera systems for a while now.

At the front sits a 7-megapixel FaceTime camera, and to be honest, we would have loved an upgrade here.

WHAT ABOUT THE ANDROID ALTERNATIVES?

Purely in terms of price, there will be the persistent debate about how the iPhone SE matches up to the Android counterparts. The thing is, the fact that you are considering the Apple iPhone SE second-generation means you want top-notch performance. That discounts a lot of the pretend flagship killer Android phones, and we get into the business end of that debate with the OnePlus 7T with prices starting Rs 34,999 and the new OnePlus 8 with prices starting at Rs 44,999 though availability is limited at this time. But they only get factored into the equation if you aren’t adamant about a compact screen size. In which case, why wouldn’t you also consider the iPhone 11? It is all too complicated, isn’t it? That is the power of choice.

The Last Word: Smaller size does not mean a compromise

The thing is, the 2020 iPhone SE would be a definite upgrade for anyone still rocking an iPhone older than let us say the iPhone XR—the performance boost will hit you in the face in the most pleasant manner. The camera matches the much more expensive iPhone 11 for the most part, which is a huge bonus for the new iPhone SE. There are three storage options to choose from, and I would seriously recommend paying a little more for the 128GB option over the 64GB one, just to add to the longevity aspect of your purchase. You want an iPhone. You got an iPhone. And this wouldn’t leave you penniless either.

  • Last Updated: May 26, 2020, 12:47 PM IST

French startup Outsight has developed a groundbreaking autonomous laser capable of managing crowd flow. According to its designers, the new device makes it possible to track individuals and monitor the behaviour of large numbers of people so as to ensure wearing masks and respect for social distancing rules. The new “3D-semantic camera” can follow individuals over a large area, ensure that they are wearing masks, and check their body temperatures and respect for social distancing, but without compromising their privacy.

Rather than tracking an entire crowd in a sports arena, store or any other public space, the goal of the new device is to identify behaviours and track individuals or groups on the basis of selected criteria, and thus enable human staff to intervene where they are most needed.

Outsight, which is hoping that the new technology will soon be deployed in public areas, has not disclosed any further details of implementation plans for the moment.

  • Last Updated: May 25, 2020, 5:10 PM IST

Japanese photography and imaging major Fujifilm on Monday launched X-T4, the latest addition to its flagship X series range of mirrorless digital cameras, in India at a starting price of Rs 154,999. Unveiled virtually on the company’s YouTube channel amid Covid-19 restrictions, X-T4 is the first model in the X-T Series to feature in-body image stabilisation (IBIS), boosting the potential of the camera for stills and video shooting.

The X-T4 comes combined with the fastest ever autofocus performance in an X series camera, thanks to the development of a new algorithm, the company said. Fujifilm also introduced in the product a new shutter unit that has been developed keeping in mind the needs and demands of the users for the camera to be fast, durable and quiet.

The shutter unit boasts double durability with 300,000 shutter life and its shutter noise is approximately 30 per cent quieter compared to the X-T3. “The retro dials and analogue chic in the outside and the highly advanced packed features in the inside makes the X-T4 a truly compelling combination. Now our consumers can free themselves from compromise and be the image-maker they’ve always wanted to be,” said Haruto Iwata, Managing Director, Fujifilm India Pvt Ltd.

The variant comes equipped with the standalone video mode, which is now activated with a simple switch, and the use of digital image stabilisation in the video mode. The new Film Simulation mode, ETERNA Bleach Bypass, simulates the traditional film processing technique to create a unique world of low saturation and high contrast.

The NP-W235 battery has a large capacity that is approximately 1.5 times that of an NP-W126S battery. It lasts for approximately 500 frames per charge in the Normal mode, approximately 600 frames per charge in the Economy mode and up to approximately 1,700 frames when two additional batteries are used with the optional battery grip “VG-XT4”, the company said.

OnePlus seems to have stumbled on a particular issue with its new handset, the OnePlus 8 Pro. The camera on the smartphone comes with a photochrom filter which apparently, can see through plastic and other thin materials including clothes just like an X-Ray. The ‘bug’ caught the attention of many and sparked privacy concerns all around.

The company has said in a statement that it will remove the accidental functionality from the device in an upcoming update. The camera filter is also going to temporarily disable the camera filter in HydrogenOS, the Chinese version of its operating system until an update is released. As for the global version of the phone, the company is choosing to leave it until the rolled out.

Additionally, the company has said that the filter cannot see through thick materials and has apologised for “creating privacy concerns and causing troubles for OnePlus users and other netizens.”

The special colour filter lens on the OnePlus 8 Pro was originally marketed as a way to click some unique photos with false-color camera filters on them. Just days ago, it was reported that the lens could also be used for infrared photography allowing people to see through thin materials like a t-shirt. Hopefully, the company can fix the issues before the handset goes on sale in India which is scheduled for May 29.

Samsung's New 50MP Camera Sensor Comes With Faster Auto-Focus and Ability to Shoot 8K Video

ISOCELL GN1 (Pic Source:  Samsung Newsroom)

ISOCELL GN1 (Pic Source: Samsung Newsroom)

Samsung’s new ISOCELL GN1 is capable of capturing 100-megapixel images using the 50-megapixel sensor.

  • News18.com
  • Last Updated: May 19, 2020, 3:34 PM IST

Samsung has introduced a new 50-megapixel camera sensor known as the ISOCELL GN1. The sensor comes with large 1.2μm-sized pixels and is the first sensor from Samsung to include both Dual Pixel and Tetracell technologies. According to the company, this will offer a combination of fast performance and good low-light image quality. The GN1 is also said to offer auto-focus speeds that can match DSLRs.

The GN1 also comes with 100 million phase-detection auto-focus (PDAF) agents. “Samsung’s Dual Pixel technology places two photodiodes side-by-side within a single pixel that can receive light from different angles for phase detection,” the company said. “With all of the sensor’s active pixels working as auto-focusing agents, the GN1 can detect and focus onto a desired still or moving object from every corner in an instant, even in low-light conditions,” Samsung said.

According to the company, the ISOCELL GN1 can take 12.5-megapixel still images with 2.4μm pixels for improved low-light photography in the pixel-binning mode. Furthermore, it will also provide a software algorithm offering a mode that lets users capture 100-megapixel images using the 50-megapixel sensor. Besides, the GN1 is also equipped with a Smart-ISO, gyro-based EIS, and up to 8K resolution at 30 frames-per-second video recording.

“With innovative pixel technologies, Samsung has been at the forefront of offering high-performance image sensors that closely cater to increasingly diversifying market needs. The ISOCELL GN1 is part of that commitment to deliver stunning images to consumers in any environment,” said Yongin Park, executive vice president of sensor business at Samsung Electronics. “We will continue to introduce image sensor solutions at the cutting-edge that will lead the next trends in mobile photography.” Samsung has said that the mass production of the ISOCELL GN1 has already started. So, it is safe to assume, that it will show up in phones pretty soon.

Embarrassed? Apple iMessage May Soon Let You Edit a Message After You’ve Sent it

Embarrassed? Apple iMessage May Soon Let You Edit a Message After You’ve Sent it

It is likely that this edit capability will land on your iPhone sooner than an edit button on Twitter.

  • News18.com
  • Last Updated: May 11, 2020, 9:42 AM IST

Apple could be lining up a significant update for the iMessage messaging app, if the new patent becomes a reality. Apple iMessage, a messaging app on iOS, iPadOS and macOS, could soon allow users to edit a message after you’ve sent it. In a new patent application titled Devices, Methods, and Graphical User Interfaces for Messaging filed with the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), Apple talks about a bunch of new features for its popular messaging app. But what stands out is the potential ability to edit a message after it has been sent. We have all been in that awkward spot where an important message has gone with a spelling error, or we have spelt the receiver’s name wrong or some such thing. That may soon be a thing of the past, at least for iMessage users on the Apple iPhone, iPad and Mac devices.

“But current messaging applications have numerous drawbacks and limitations. For example, they are limited in their ability to easily: acknowledge messages; edit previously sent messages; express what a user is trying to communicate; display private messages; synchronize viewing of content between users; incorporate handwritten inputs; quickly locate content in a message transcript,” says the patent application. It also addresses some limitations that most present instant messaging platforms tend to have such as, “integrate a camera; integrate search and sharing; integrate interactive applications; integrate stickers; make payments; interact with avatars; make suggestions; navigate among interactive applications; manage interactive applications; translate foreign language text; combine messages into a group; and flag messages.”

At this time, Apple iMessage is competing with the likes of WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Telegram, Signal in the instant messaging space and a whole host of video meeting tools such as Microsoft Skype, Microsoft Team, Google Hangouts, Google Meet and Zoom. The versatility to iMessage as an all-in-one communication app for messages, video calls, group video calls and more gives it an advantage over rivals, at least on the iPhone, iPad and macOS. Right now, no app allows you to edit a text message after you have sent it. If iMessage does get this feature soon, it will be the first to get something that most of us have been waiting for. Whether we realise it or not.

Apple has still not made iMessage apps for Android and Windows 10, for instance, and remains exclusive to Apple’s iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Mac devices.

Samsung Patent Reveals a Smartphone That Has a 'Status Indicator' On the Selfie Camera

South Korean tech giant Samsung has patented a new device that depicts a status indicator on the punch hole camera. The company submitted five design patents with the China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA) back on 16 October 2019. These patents are focused on the selfie camera, which was surrounded by a graphical interface. According to GizmoChina, one might see a status indicator around its single or even dual selfie setup on the front, as depicted within the patented designs themselves. The status indicator around the camera is in various shapes like square, ovaloid and even circular.

As for the placement, the camera setup is usually situated either to the far-left, the far-right; or the centre of the device. Samsung is likely to introduce its next flagship series Galaxy Note 20 in August and can expect to see status indicator incorporated in the Note 20 series. Earlier, the company filed a new patent for a smartphone with an expandable display which can give users more screen when required. The patented smartphone will come with a quirky sensor that can recognize a change in the touch input coordinate in real-time to calculate the degree of increase or decrease of the display screen size.
