It’s been a while since we had a true budget iPhone. The new iPhone SE announced today looks primed to offer up the same power as a flagship handset but at a much friendlier price starting at $399. But what did Apple give up in order to get a iPhone that cheap? To figure it out, we’ve lined up the specs of the iPhones announced back in September to see how the SE stacks up against its more expensive siblings. Of course, this is only a hint of its true potential, so stay tuned for our review in the coming weeks.
