What is the internal memory of the iPhone SE?
This phone comes in two memory options. The first one is the 16GB internal variant. This is suitable to those who are not interested in gaming and taking very many pictures.
Some games take up a lot of storage space and if you love regularly taking photos and videos, you may find it a little bit lacking.
The second is the 64GB one. With the capability of the iPhone camera, you should choose this option if your budget allows because you won’t be limited to only a few photos and games. More storage space is usually better.
Is the camera good?
There is one saying that goes this way, you should never doubt the quality of photos an iPhone takes. The primary camera is 12MP while the secondary one is 1.2MP.
These cameras easily out do some other phones with even more mega pixels. This is because the quality of a camera is not measured by the number of pixels it has.

This is where a bone of contention arises. The SE has a 1624 mAh battery. This is considered very low by the current standards. However, you should note that Apple have mastered both their software and hardware.
They have really optimized their operating system to take as little power as possible. It will easily last you until the end of the day with average usage.

If you are considering buying an iPhone in Kenya and you can somehow not reach the premium price of iPhone 7 or 6, you should opt for the SE since it will give you value for money.
The advantages far outweigh the disadvantages of owning one of the best phones in the world.
