iPhone SE wins on thickness as it has a smaller screen. Its camera has a Retina flash which is helpful clicking low-light selfies. SE’s battery life is expected of being little better as it naturally draws less power due to its smaller screen size. iPhone SE is little lighter also in comparison with 6s. Apple has reused the Touch ID in their latest model SE which does not make us upset. Both mobiles run on iOS 9.3. Lack of 3D Touch support on SE is the prime difference.

Our Conclusion:

iPhone 6s has definitely lots of new features like 3D Touch and 2nd-gen fingerprint sensor, yet these features are unavailable in the new 4in iPhone SE. Nevertheless, we are quite impressed with this welcome addition.
