    I have the iphone 5 right now.

    Is the 5s screen better? if yes, what has been upgraded? Is it the color, contrast, etc?

    How about the iphone SE screen, is it better than the Iphone 5s screen as well since it is a later model?

    I compared the iphone 5 to the iphone 6 and the screen is noticeably better, but i don't want a 4.7" phone so i am sticking with either the 5 or 5s or SE.

    The resolution is still the same, but look to see if the nits are different. I would think the SE would have the best battery life because of the A9 processor, which even burns the best Qualcomm offers.

    The screens used in SE have better contrast compared with those used in 5/5C/5S.

    All the same screens. Although everything else is different between the 5 and the SE. Especially the processor & the back camera and the Touch ID will make a difference in usage.

    Same crappy screen. It's the only thing that keeps me from using the SE is the screen. It's fast, a much loved design, but the screen is abysmal compared to the 6s/7 and 6s Plus/7 plus.

    Yes, They are all the same screen same 1136 X 640 Definition.. the only difference between three is both 5S and SE even the iPhone X uses Lightning Connector while the iPhone 5 uses only 30 Pin connector founds in 2G to 4S also.

    Retina HD is actually what they call the iPhone 6, 7, and 8 models display. Better than the SE's.
