Typical of Rene's style, this review goes into the deep details of what's new, what's great, and what Apple should have done differently. Grab a cuppa, sit back, and find out what this expert thinks of Apple's lowest-price iPhone since the original iPhone SE.

  • So looks like it is using the iPhone 8 camera and not the XR/11 like some were claiming. So it really is just a recycled iPhone 8 with a new processor and ram....
  • Pretty much, it should've been called the iPhone 8S or iPhone 9
  • Did you see the photos or hear his explanation? Yeah it's the same hardware, but every photo he took looked a bit better than the Xr as far as exposure and clarity goes, and even as good/better than the 11 IMO on one of them. The only thing it "can't" do is night mode, everything else was on par with the latest flagships.
  • Same sensor. New software and mounting.
  • I thought Rene was going away?
  • The question is, are you upset he's leaving or upset that he's still here?
  • Um, neither? Just surprised to see him here, and asking a question. A question which you clearly have no answer for.
  • He's gone rouge. Ha ha. Making more money by having his own channel. They are still using his videos.
