The terminal is made of glass with an oil-repellent, anti-fingerprint cover and is resistant to water and dust. Small but tough, as it has IP67 certificate that allows the mobile to be submerged to a depth of meter for 30 minutesJust in case, we always recommend keeping the phone away from shower liquids, swimming pools, sinks, etc.
Regarding the battery, being a basic mobile with such a small panel, its 1,700 mAh is more than enough to last a day, although we cannot be sure, since it depends on the software work that Apple has done on the iPhone SE (2020) and the more or less intensive use that we make with the terminal.

This new mobile also has haptic feedback for quick actions such as organizing applications, viewing notifications, Live Photos, etc.
In the photographic section we have a camera on each side of the terminal, that is, a main camera on the back of 12 MP with 1.8 focal length and LED flash, recording 4K video and a 7 MP front-facing camera housed in the top edge.
