Iphone SE vs Iphone 6: It’s not everyday that you get to call an Apple product affordable, but a lot of people do yearn for the same. The iPhone SE, for example, is among the very few products that can be called affordable, which is also why the phone has seen a huge popularity, especially in India. The iPhone SE can be bought for Rs 18,999 on Amazon India and Flipkart, which is a pretty attractive offer for Apple fans looking for an affordable iPhone.
But the iPhone SE isn’t the only iPhone being sold under Rs 20,000. On Paytm Mall, you can also find the iPhone 6 for as low as Rs 19,500 if you combine a Rs 3,000 cashback and an extra 10 per cent cashback via ICICI Bank credit card. Now, both these iPhones aren’t new by any stretch of the imagination, but Apple products typically have a long shelf life, which is why these phones are still available despite the iPhone 8 and iPhone X in the market. These phone continue to perform and work for the average Apple consumer, but if you’re confused about which iPhone makes the most sense under Rs 20,000, allow us to make things a little easier.

Iphone SE vs Iphone 6s Plus
After the size difference, the next major difference one is most likely to notice between the smaller iPhone SE and the larger iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus models is that the smaller model has flat sides with a “chamfered cut” band around the edges of the sides, whereas the larger models have softly rounded sides. EveryiPhone.com prefers the iPhone SE design with flat sides as it is easier to grip, but others prefer the sleeker look that the rounded sides of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus provide.
The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus also are made of aerospace-grade 7000 series aluminum, which is more durable and less bendable than the aluminum used in the iPhone SE. In durability tests from SquareTrade, the company found that the iPhone SE bent under 160 pounds (73 kg) of pressure whereas the iPhone 6s bent under 170 pounds (77 kg) of pressure and the iPhone 6s Plus under 180 pounds (82 kg) of pressure. All three have an unadvertised rubber gasket around the display to reduce, but not eliminate, the risk of internal water damage, as well.

Iphone SE Size vs Iphone 6
iPhone SE has a 4-inch screen with 1136×640 pixels at 326 ppi. That’s the same size as the old iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s. It means everything from apps to games to the web will look smaller, including text and pictures.
iPhone 6s has a 4.7-inch screen with 1336×750 pixels at 326 ppi, and the iPhone 6s Plus has a 5.5-inch screen with a 1920×1080-pixel screen at 401 ppi. That means, with iPhone 6s, you get more of everything, and with iPhone 6s Plus you get much more, including the ability to run iPad-style (two column) apps in landscape mode.
