Looking for the best deals on iPhone SE? You’ve come to the right place. Finding a good deal on a device you want is not easy. There’s multiple things to consider - upfront payment vs monthly installments, BYOD vs device financing, to 5G or not to 5G and which carrier and data amount to choose. And all this also depends upon which province you live in.

To make this choice easy for you, we have taken a detailed look, not just at the specs, reviews and pro and cons of the iPhone SE but also at all the deals currently on offer for iPhone SE in Canada to help you make the most informed decision.

If you are looking for the cheapest phone in the Apple ecosystem or loved your previous iPhone SE and are looking to upgrade, we recommend the new iPhone SE. However, if you are simply looking for a good, compact phone, but if you're not a fan of the Apple ecosystem, we recommend the Google Pixel 4a - which beats the iPhone SE in terms of price, specs, aesthetics and camera.

The latest budget iPhone from Apple, the 2020 iPhone SE has been the long-awaited successor to the much-beloved iPhone SE. No bigger than an iPhone 6s, the new iPhone SE features a compact design, fast wireless charging, good cameras and the latest A13 Bionic chipset from Apple.

  1. Compact design: The iPhone SE line has been known for being a powerful, compact phone and in this iteration, this continues to be true. It fits comfortably into most pockets and is comfortable for one-handed use.
  2. Powerful chip and good camera: Despite being a budget phone, the iPhone SE features Apple’s latest A13 bionic chip which is said to be the fastest and most powerful mobile chip in the market. It is the same chip that featured in Apple flagships devices such as the iPhone 11 Pro.
  3. Inexpensive: Starting only at $599 from Apple, this is the company’s most affordable phone.

  1. Outdated design: Even for budget phones these days, a big bezel is an outdated design choice. Consider the nearly bezel-less design of the new Google Pixel 4a which also features excellent cameras and an OLED screen for an even cheaper price!
  2. Camera lacks night mode: Which again, for 2020 is an unacceptable compromise, especially since nearly all budget phones, including Google’s excellent Pixel 4a, and the One Plus Nord, feature decent night mode capability.
  3. Shorter battery life than other iPhones: Because it is a compact phone that still has the A13 chip, it means it has a smaller battery powering the same powerful CPU. Hence battery life on the iPhone SE is considerably shorter than the iPhone 11 or 11 Pro. However, to compensate it does feature fast wireless charging.
