The best iPhone SE (2016) deals in August 2020

Looking for the iPhone SE 2020? Head over to our iPhone SE 2020 deals page to find out more.

Removed from the Apple website and store, no longer sold by most retailers and now replaced by the brand new iPhone SE 2020, this original handset is indeed a dying breed.

The number of iPhone SE deals has dropped drastically in recent months, gone are the long list of deals costing just £15 a month, the big data offers and affordable mid-data contracts, what’s left seems to be the random scraps. We’ll be honest, at this point you’re better off going for an iPhone 7 deal or iPhone 6S deal instead.

The tech world rejoiced when the iPhone SE was released. Finally, a new Apple phone that doesn’t require you to remortgage your house and take on a second job – unlike iPhone 11 Pro deals!

Following Apple’s product launch back in September, we were unsure if we’d get the  the iPhone SE 2020, to go alongside the iPhone XR as the ‘base model’.

So If cheap iPhone SE deals are what you seek (while they’re still here), then you’ve definitely come to the right place. Use TechRadar’s comparison chart to easily find the ideal plan, or scroll down further to find our pick of the best SE deals on the market.

iPhone SE review in Summary

iPhone SE review

Still a brilliant budget option a few years on

Screen size: 4-inches | Resolution: 640 x 1136 | Rear camera: 12MP | Front camera: 1.2Mp | Weight: 113g | OS: iOS 10.3.2 | RAM: 2GB | Battery: 1624mAh

Surprisingly powerful

Great battery life

Budget price point

Outdated screen

Launched back in March 2016, the ‘Special Edition’ iPhone SE was a rare example of Apple dropping its entry-level price to allow bargain-hunters a piece of the iPhone pie. It reduced the screen size from the iPhone 6, but kitted it out with the same camera as the iPhone 6S. In short, it’s a premium smartphone with a lower price tag – and we like that!
