Apple recently announced the iPhone SE, and there are quite a few different features that are missing when compared to the iPhone 6S. While it is true that both phones use the same A9 and M9 processors, and the speed is great in both devices (check here iPhone SE vs iPhone 6s Speed Comparison) there are still a number of things that are not present with the SE.
Screen Size / resolution: iPhone SE vs iPhone 6 vs iPhone 6 Plus
The screen size of the iPhone SE is 4” compared to the 4.7” screen of the iPhone 6 and the 5.5” screen of the iPhone 6S Plus: The SE’s smaller screen also translates into fewer pixels as well.
You will find that the iPhone SE has a 1,136×640 pixel screen resolution, while the iPhone 6S has a 1,334×750 resolution, so there is a pretty stark difference between the two.
There is an even more noticeable difference when comparing the SE’ screen resolution to the iPhone 6S Plus, which has a 1,920×1,080 resolution.
But the pixels-per-inch number is still the same when comparing the SE to the 6S though.
Those who purchase the iPhone SE will be sure to notice that iPhone SE doesn’t have 3D Touch, which is one of the more noteworthy features of the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus.
If you are planning to get the iPhone SE, keep in mind that you will not be able to use the pressure-sensitive gestures to access Peek and Pop previews as well as shortcut menus.

The iPhone SE can be purchased in two different storage capacities, including 16GB and 64GB. With the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, however, you are able to purchase a much larger 128GB capacity model.
The high-resolution front-facing camera that is found on the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus models has not been carried over to the SE model. The SE does have the same 12-megapixel rear-facing camera, but the front-facing one offers only 1.2 megapixels, which is a hugely noticeable difference when compared to the iPhone 6’s 5-megapixel front-facing camera.
