The outside looks very similar, but the insides are more like a 6S.

You are getting the 6S technology in a case the size and shape of a 5 and 5S.

I would say the iPhone SE is situated somewhere between an iPhone 6 and 6S with even a few holdover capabilities from the 5/5S. While it does have the A9 processor, it lacks some of the most publicized features of the iPhone 6S, such as 3D touch and higher contrast ratio to name a few.

While the iPhone SE is definitely a step up from the iPhone 5/5S, it is not quite up to par with the iPhone 6S or even the iPhone 6 in some capabilities.
