Apple has already announced iPhone SE, and lot of Apple fans are dying to buy the New Apple Toy. New 4″ iPhone comes with great specs and lesser price tag.

iPhone SE features include the latest Apple A9 Chip, 16GB/64GB Storage, 12 MP Rear camera, 1.2 MP selfie camera, 4″ Display etc.. However, there are specs/features which have been compromised for price, which Apple has not shared publicly.

1. First Generation Touch ID

Even with Apple A9 CPU iPhone 6s-like Specs, Apple has still used First Generation Touch ID with iPhone SE. Newer iPhone 6s and 6s Plus features second generation Touch ID. Touch ID in iPhone SE would be little slower compared to iPhone 6s.

2. Downgraded Front Camera

Though iPhone SE do features a good Rear camera with 12 MP that can even record 4K video. But the catch is, Apple has downgraded selfie shooter. iPhone SE front camera would probably capture selfie of the quality of iPhone 5 (not even iPhone 5S). iPhone 5 and iPhone SE both features 1.2 megapixel front shooter with f/2.4 Aperture. The good thing in iPhone SE is the Retina Flash that will help you to capture photos even in the dark or low light.

5. Missing Dual-domain pixels Technology for Wider Viewing Angle

Dual-domain pixels in iPhone helps wide angle display to show more accurate color even at difficult viewing angles. iPhone SE definitely got Retina Display with 1136 x 640 pixels resolution, but you may loose the viewing experience of iPhone 6s.
