The wishes of thousands and thousands of wishful iPhone owners came true on Monday when Apple unveiled to the world its cheapest iPhone till date, iPhone SE. Since its much anticipated launch, the 4inch iPhone is being compared to the technology giant's flagship device iPhone 6S much to the delight of the future owners of the device and to the wrath of then present iPhone 6S owners. Both the models are said to have the same M9 and A9 processors, complimented with A Touch ID, 12-megapixel rear-facing camera, Hey Siri, NFC and Live Photos. But, here's where the similarities end. For the iPhone 6S owners thinking if they had pulled the trigger early by purchasing the device, here are 5 features that you don't get with the iPhone SE.

1) 3D Touch -

The master attraction of 3D Touch is missing in the recently launched device. The 3D touch on iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S plus allows people to make use of pressure-sensitive gestures in order to access the Peek and Pop previews and shortcut menus on the device. Apple has kept iPhone SE away from this luxury for now.

2) Contrast ratio -

When it comes to contrast ratio, iPhone SE is defeated plain and simple by its iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S plus counterparts. While the contrast ratio of iPhone 6S reads as 1,400:1, it is just 800:1 for the new iPhone SE. Further, the iPhone 6S Plus has a contrast ratio of 1,300:1.

3) Screen size -

The newly launched iPhone SE comes with a 4-inch screen, which is smaller than iPhone 6S' 4.7-inch screen and much smaller than iPhone 6S Plus' 5.5-inch screen. Further, a smaller screen also translates to fewer pixels. The iPhone SE has debuted with a 1,136x640-pixel screen resolution, compared with iPhone 6S' resolution at 1,334x750 pixels and iPhone 6S Plus resolution at 1,920x1,080 pixels. However, at 326ppi, the pixels-per-inch remains the same between both the iPhone SE and 6S models. But, the iPhone 6S Plus has a slight higher pixel-density at 401ppi.

4) High-resolution front-facing camera -

People planning to have their perfect selfies with their iPhone SE might be left disappointed. While, the 12-megapixel rear-facing camera is same in both iPhone SE and iPhone 6S, the new iPhone SE has a poor 1.2 megapixels front-facing camera which isn't good enough for for all the selfie addicts out there. This 1.2 megapixels is much less than iPhone 6S' 5-megapixel camera.

5) 128GB capacity -

Nowadays, the capacity of our phones matter a lot as most of us have practically replaced our laptops, computers with our iPhones. The iPhone SE has only two different storage capacity variants available in 16GB and 64GB. While the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus models also have a third variant available in 128GB capacity.
