Price History

The trade-in price history of iPhone SE 16GB generally shows a decline. In other words, the used prices of this device are dropping as newer models come to market. It is only very rarely that a second-hand electrical device will increase in price; this usually happens for example if it's a collector's item. Therefore if you are looking to sell your iPhone SE 16GB then it probably makes sense to do it sooner rather than later - before the next price drop.

About Apple iPhone SE 16GB - prices, trade-in, reviews

The iPhone SE is the only 4 inch iPhone still made by Apple. It looks similar to the iPhone 5s, but has internal specifications that close match the iPhone 6s. These include the more powerful A9 processor, a 12 megapixel camera and support for Apple Pay. Other great features included on the iPhone SE are the touch ID feature as well as the striking metal casing design taken from the 5th generation of iPhone.


The iPhone SE was designed to offer a cheaper alternative to the iPhone 6s, which was released a few months earlier. The SE stands for Special Edition. Since it’s launch in September 2016, the iPhone SE has managed to hold it’s ground well and is still selling well today. The fact that it’s compact design is largely based around that of the iPhone 5 is one of the main reasons for it’s popularity. The SE model has also been popular with those who don’t quite have the budget for a brand new iPhone, yet still want to remain on the fringe of the technological advances of the brand.


Many believe that the iPhone SE is really a successor to the iPhone 5s, as opposed to being a spin off from the 5th generation of iPhone. As well as having superior internal specifications to the iPhone 5s, the SE also had extra choice of colour. The SE is available in a total of four different colours. These are Rose Gold, Space Grey, Silver and Gold. In terms of storage capacity, the SE was launched with either 16GB or 64GB of built in storage. In early 2017 these amounts were doubled, bringing the final options available today to 32GB and 128GB.


Despite being a small iPhone, it packs a punch. With the new increased storage capacity the iPhone SE copes well with the demands from the iOS 10 and iOS 11 operating software. This means that it benefits from all of the latest and greatest features offered by Apple, including the ability to pay with your phone via Apple Pay. The iPhone SE also has the virtual assistant Siri built in. However unlike the version of Siri that was seen in the earlier iPhone 4 and iPhone 5 models, the Siri on the iPhone SE is always on, meaning it can be activated by voice at any time if enabled. Other features over and above the 5th generation of iPhone are the ability to take Live Photos and support for the Retina Flash. Despite all of the extra features and other capabilities the iPhone SE has over the 5th generation of iPhone, the battery life has been significantly increased. The overall performance is also regarded as much improved over previous models of iPhone.


Another thing that made the SE such a hit was the fact that it was a definite upgrade from the previous iPhone 5, however physically it was exactly the same. This meant that people who owned an iPhone 5 or iPhone 5s could upgrade to a significantly improved device, but still keep the design that they originally fell in love with.
