And even their weight is almost the same: iPhone 5S has got 112 grams and iPhone SE has got 113 grams, but what is one gram, you cannot even feel the difference. The only thing that can give iPhone SE out is an inscription “SE” on the back panel. But! If you decide to buy a used iPhone SE be careful because the seller can give you iPhone 5S instead of iPhone SE, simply by changing iPhone 5S back panel to the iPhone SE back panel.

Whereas in iPhone 5S in order to call Siri, it is necessary to connect the smartphone to the charge. So, if you say “Hi Siri” and Siri starts to function right away it means that this is iPhone SE, otherwise it’s iPhone 5S.

This is achieved with the help of the coprocessor M9, in contrast to iPhone 5S which has coprocessor M7. Also, iPhone 5S has a dual-core A7 processor, and iPhone SE has A9 one. It is characterized by the increased processor speed and a small technical processor. So, iPhone SE works faster and swifter than iPhone 5S. Also, iPhone SE has 2 GB of RAM, while iPhone 5S has only 1 GB. And you can check this only if you download the app System Monitor. With the help of this app you can track the RAM section is in the device that you are intended to buy. And just in general, the application will show the model of iPhone and the type of its processor. So you can download System Monitor app right away and make that you are buying original and authentic device.

One more difference between iPhone 5S and iPhone SE lies in the memory volumes. iPhone 5S has its variations with 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB of memory. iPhone SE gas two options: 16 GB and 64 GB.
