Top 5 things missing from the iPhone SE
Today we're counting down the top five features missing from Apples brand new iPhone SE.
At number five an improved front-facing camera.
The iPhone 6s packs a snazzy five mega pixel camera in the front.
But Apple only gave the iPhone SE camera 1.2 mega pixels.
So that's not change from the 5S.
Cue the sad trombone.
4, the new touch ID.
The touch ID sensor in the iPhone SE is not the same as in the iPhone 6S.
The touch ID sensor on the iPhone 6S is incredibly zippy.
Now the original version wasn't that slow but it seems the latest and greatest version available.
Next up, three d touch.
If you try to touch the iPhone SE screen with force hoping to see a menu, line the iPhone six S, I'm afraid we've got some bad news, nothing's going to happen.
The iPhone SE screen does not Distinguish pressure.
To the iPhone SE, a tap is just a tap.
Coming in at number two, a great screen.
Now, I'm not knocking the four inch size of the display, it's perfect front pocket size for the lady pants.
But the resolution of the screen is below 720p HD and the contrast ratio is lower than the iPhone 6S, so the screen is less than great.
On the plus side, it does have the same pixel density as the 6S, so your less than HD image will be sharp.
[SOUND] Here's a quick reminder of what new features are in the iPhone SE.
It may have the body of an old 5S, but the new SE gets 4K video recording and a 12 megapixel camera.
It has Apple Pay built in with an NFC chip, hands free Siri, and lots of speed thanks to a processor upgrade.
All right, now let's get critical and get to the number one thing missing from the iPhone SE.
And the number one thing missing?
a 128 GB option.
Apple, sit down.
We gotta have a talk.
Apps are huge.
Cameras are better.
So our storage fills up faster than ever before.
Give us at least the option to get 128 gigabytes in the iPhone SE.
I mean, you do realize you put the ability to take 4K video in the SE, right?
Because that's the space, space.
[SOUND] We did it, we reached the end of the show.
