iPhone SE will hit the stores in India on April 8. The all new 4-inch Apple smartphone looks just like iPhone 5S, which was announced in 2012.

Sure iPhone 6 is more than a year old, but it is still an incredible proposition from a value perspective. Apple iPhone 6 is powered by A8 chip, and has a 4.7-inch Retina display, a resolution that was retained for iPhone 6s too. Also, considering the fact that the 16 GB variant is available for less than iPhone SE, it does not seem to be a bad deal for those who like big phones. The camera, Touch ID, are also strong points in favour of the iPhone 6. Read our review of iPhone 6 here

Next up, we have iPhone 6s (16 GB), which starts at Rs 41,999 on Flipkart. Infibeam is selling iPhone 6s (64 GB) for Rs 52, 4999. The comparison with the Apple iPhone 6s is inevitable; because iPhone SE basically borrows everything from this phone, including those chamfered edges. Like we earlier said, the iPhone SE comes with the hardware prowess of iPhone 6s, and if you're feeling more ambitious then you can go ahead and buy the bigger screen size iPhone 6s. Remember the iPhone 6s also has a 5 megapixel front camera unlike the iPhone 6, iPhone SE which have a 1.2 megapixel FaceTime camera. So if you're a selfie fan and want an Apple device, then 6s with its price-cut is a good deal right now. Read our review of iPhone 6S here

In our first impressions of iPhone SE, we noted that the graphics performance seems to be at par with iPhone 6S the device runs smoothly with high-end games. The battery is the same as on the iPhone 5S, though it might give more thanks to OS optimisations. The iPhone 5S (16 GB) is available for as low at Rs 19,169 and on Infibeam for Rs 27,289. But honestly it is nearly 3 years old in the Apple lineup and if you want a faster performance along with the latest features, the iPhone SE or the iPhone 6 are better options to consider.Read more here

But if you like to stick with a smaller screen and have been waiting to upgrade your iPhone 5, now is the time. The iPhone SE packs a powerful 12 mp camera, has a four-inch screen, a fingerprint scanner and the A9 processor. It runs the latest iOS 9.3 and Apple has added a matte finish to edge of the frame to give it a subtle differentiator. For those who like devices that can fit in their pocket, the iPhone SE is the device to go for. Apple iPhone SE has also the latest features that are there in the iPhone 6s including Live Photos, but sadly no 3D Touch like the iPhone 6s. Read more here
