Apple introduced its least expensive iPhone on Monday, after months of speculation, iPhone SE is finally a reality. The New iPhone SE is equally good and powerful as the iPhone 6s and had learnt everything from iPhone 6s expect how to face hard time when a user like SquareTrade want.
A new video reveals that the new 4-inch smartphone is less durable than its larger siblings when bent under pressure, submerged in water, and dropped on its corner.
Extended warranty provider SquareTrade subjected the iPhone SE, iPhone 6s, and iPhone 6s Plus to a series of excessive bend, drop, tumble, and water tests, and the results show that its compact design does not necessarily make it more durable than the slimmer 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones.
In the pressure test SquareTrade noted that the iPhone SE bent at 160 pounds of pressure, whereas the thinner iPhone 6s did not bend until an additional 10 pounds later. Moreover, at 178 pounds, the iPhone SE reached catastrophic failure, whereas the iPhone 6s Plus was only beginning to bend under the pressure.
The iPhone SE was quick to permanently shut off after less than one minute when submerged under five feet of water. "In comparison, the iPhone 6s survived a full 30 minutes and only lost audio," said SquareTrade. "The iPhone 6s Plus started malfunctioning at 10 minutes and eventually died."
The Result are pretty much unsurprising as the iPhone SE design rely on the old generation iPhone 5s, the difference is in the core of iPhone SE with upgradable processor as well as Ram and matte chamfered edges and a color-matched inset Apple logo.
