Absolutely love this new version of the iPhone SE.
1. Small to pack around but no sacrifice to quality.
2. Screen size is perfect and not overly big so that it won’t comfortably fit into the pocket.
3. All the great features you would expect.
a. Wireless charging.
b. Excellent battery life.
c. Super fast processor
d. Water resistant and dust resistant.
4. Apple gave nearly all the great features you would find on a flagship iPhone for such a small price starting at $399.
5. No matter what use you have for a smartphone the new iPhone SE will definitely meet your needs.
I was shopping online for this iPhone for my son. I was surprised at the sale price (with free shipping) even cheaper than Costco.
I was a bit wary because of the great online sale price, but I thought, go for it, it’s Best Buy, not an unknown store.
We got it earlier than expected. Just make sure to be at your house because it gets delivered right at your front door.
We got a red iPhone SE 2020, which he wanted. Set up was so easy. We just turned it on and it gave us the option to transfer info from his old phone. He had my old iPhone 6+. We knew it was smaller but it is not obviously by much. I highly recommend this iPhone for price and quality.
This is my 2nd purchase at this store online this week and I am not getting anything for this review.
I will be honest I fell in love with this phone the few first moments I had with it, basically the guts with a modern apple phone, but a smaller phone easier to text one handed, and more comfortable usability. The return of Touch ID is one of the features I love, the Face ID to me always has been very fickle especially with folks with glasses and the motion controls aren’t as easy to grasp for new smart phone users as the touch control in my opinion. All in all great product with the only hang up of maybe a the caveat of 1 gig of ram, would improve the speed of the phone.. well worth it for the money
Great update for iPhone if you prefer smaller size

I've had this phone for about a month and I'm enjoying it. I previously had a 6S (I KNOW) and it was a great transition as I preferred the smaller sized iPhone. Photo quality is great. Battery life could be a little better, but I typically charge it once a day and use it throughout the day. It has everything you'd expect in terms of Apple's functionality.
We replaced my husband’s 6s with the second generation SE. He liked the size of the 6s and didn’t want something too big. This has the same Touch ID and home button he’s used to but with way more memory and a much better camera. An easy transition from the previous phone. The price was great too - was on sale for $350, which made the decision a no-brainer. Highly recommend.
Bought this for my mother who wanted an iphone and it is the perfect iphone. I was surprised to see that the photos are on par with my xs max. In fact, they may even be better. The phone is super snappy and fast, it doesn't get sluggish at all. Finally Apple has released a phone that will take the mobile phone business by storm. You can't go wrong with this iphone. Screen is also crystal clear. If you're looking for a new iphone and don't mind the smaller screen, this one is for you. This also has the same cpu as the new iphone 11. You can't go wrong!
This iPhone was purchased for my husband. He has always used an android through his work. He recently retired and the rest of our family use an iPhone. He is not into technology and this phone gives him some of the latest technology without overwhelming him with bells and whistles that he would get little benefit from. He has adapted really well and this phone fits his needs.

Apple iPhone SE Review: This Is the iPhone to Buy Right Now
Rumors of a cheaper, smaller iPhone swirled for years before Apple actually announced the $400 second-gen iPhone SE this month, so it's likely that the company has long been planning to release a successor to its popular pint-sized iPhone. But theFull Review

Apple iPhone SE review (2020): Great phone, even better price
Building a $400 phone is an exercise in compromise, and the iPhone SE certainly has its share. Despite that, Apple's smallest, cheapest smartphone offers tremendous performance for the price. It won't make sense for everyone, but people who valueFull Review

A:AnswerSometimes when your purchase the equipment from Verizon they’ll require old plans to be updated to new ones but if you purchase the phone outside of them, then there’ll be no changes to your plan
A:AnswerThis phone is the 2nd version of the iPhone SE. The original iPhone SE was based on the iPhone 5S body type. This updated version is based on the iPhone 8 body type. This is a completely new device for 2020. Unless you purchase a “refurbished” device, you will have a brand new iPhone SE 2nd Generation.
A:AnswerI'm not sure how quickly the activation will occur, but you can order the phone and SIM card. I ended up having to call Verizon to assist with the activation. In all, the call with Verizon only took 10-15 minutes. I hope that helps and best of luck.
