iPhone SE Vs iPhone 11 Review

iPhone SE Vs iPhone 11:we’re going to be doing a detailed comparison between the new iPhone SE 2020 and the iPhone 11.

If you want to check that out, I’ll leave that link in the cards and in the description.

But of course, there are many more differences, other than just the cameras, and that’s what we’ll be looking at in today’s video.

So initially, let’s take a look at the build and design.

They are both very similar.

We’ve got an aluminum frame with a glass panel at the back.

You can tell that they are both from the same family.

We do have slight differences for the camera modules, but generally speaking, I think both of these do look really nice from the back and they are both also very premium.

Now, the iPhone 11 does get a few advantages.

Firstly, it is IP68 rated water and dust resistant, versus the IP67 on the iPhone SE.

Now, how much of a difference is that going to make day-to-day?

Probably not too much, but it does mean that you’ll be able to submerge the iPhone 11 into the water up to two meters, compared to just one meter on the iPhone SE.

The iPhone 11 is also available in a few more color options.

You get both of these in black, white, as well as a product red.

But on the iPhone 11, you can also get it in green, yellow, as well as a purple.

Now, in either case, you can always customize the look of your iPhone with a skin or a grit case from our channel sponsor, brand.

It’s a very quick and easy way to give your device some protection, as well as a unique look.

I’ll be leaving a link to the brand in the description below if you want to pick up a grip case or a skin.

The iPhone SE, of course, is a lot smaller compared to the iPhone 11 as well.

This is the exact same dimensions as the iPhone 8, so if you are somebody that’s coming from maybe an iPhone 6, 6s, 7, or an 8, then the iPhone SE is going to feel a lot more familiar rather than having to do that much bigger jump up to the iPhone 11.

The iPhone SE also weighs quite a bit less compared to the iPhone 11, and it is probably one of the most compact smartphones that you can buy right now.

Now let’s move over to the front of the displays, where there are lots of similarities, but also some significant differences.

So firstly, in terms of display technology, both of these have liquid retina displays, LCD, they both have the same 326 PPI pixel density, the same contrast ratio, as well as the same peak brightness of 625 nits.

They’re generally really good displays.

They’re of course not at the level of the OLED displays that we’ve got on the iPhone 11 Pros, but the biggest difference between these two, of course, is the screen-to-body ratio.

The iPhone SE has a very similar-looking front to the iPhone 8, and that also means that we’ve got pretty thick bezels on the top and the bottom compared to today’s standards.

The iPhone 11 has much smaller bezels all around with a notch.

So yes, the iPhone 11 does have a larger display, but the higher screen-to-body ratio means you’ll get much more real estate in comparison to the size of the device.

Now how much does that mean to you is going to come down to your personal preference?

I do like a larger display with a higher screen-to-body ratio.

I’m somebody who consumes a lot of content on my smartphone.

But if you’re somebody who’s not too bothered about that, then I’m sure you’re going to be absolutely fine with the iPhone SE.

Now, one thing that you do get, because of those bezels, is Touch ID.

So this is the fingerprint scanner here on the home button.

It works really, really well.

It’s very fast, and most importantly, it’s very familiar.

If you’re coming from one of the older iPhones, then you’re going to feel right at home with this Touch ID home button.

On the iPhone 11, you do have Face ID, which again, is really, really good.

It’s very fast, it works really, really well.

Now, which one of these you prefer is going to come down to your personal preference.

I guess you’ve got advantages and disadvantages of both.

I personally do prefer a fingerprint scanner.

I just think it’s quicker and more convenient on the whole, but in certain situations, such as when you’ve got gloves on, Face ID is better.

Now let’s move onto the cameras.

So, as mentioned, I have done a detailed camera comparison between these two, and I cover pretty much all aspects of the cameras in that video with lots of samples, so I’ll link that in the cards and in the description.

But in a nutshell, although many images in good light are very comparable with the primary cameras, on the iPhone 11, I believe
you do have a larger sensor.

This is not something that Apple has specified, but the iPhone 11 does come with a Night Mode, which means low-light photography is a lot better.

You also have the ultra-wide camera, which lets you get in a lot more into your shots, something that I really, really like.

And on the front-facing cameras as well, although lots of images are comparable, on the iPhone 11, you do have a high-resolution, and it allows you to get wider selfies, which will be great for group selfies.

And for video as well, although the iPhone takes really good video, the iPhone 11 has a better dynamic range, better stabilization.

From the front-facing cameras, you have 4K, whereas you’ve only got 1080p on the iPhone SE.

So yes, the iPhone 11 does offer more features in the way of cameras compared to the iPhone SE, but that’s not to say that
the iPhone SE has bad cameras.

It’s still got very capable cameras, and a lot of it does come down to what’s powering these two, and it is the A13 Bionic chip, which is very, very fast.

You do get a little bit more RAM on the iPhone 11, which you may not notice on a day-to-day basis, but it’s going to help with
gaming and multitasking.

But generally speaking, on the day-to-day for a regular user, performance is very comparable between these two.

They are both very, very good, and that’s also thanks to the software.

You do have iOS 13, and Apple is really good at providing software updates, so both of these should also last you at least an amount of time.

Both devices also support dual SIMs.

You’ve got a nano physical SIM card slot, but you can also have an eSIM, which is great.

Both devices also have stereo speakers.

We’ve got one in the earpiece, and we’ve got one upon firing.

The iPhone 11 does have spatial audio, and it also has support for Dolby Atmos.

So it just does sound better, it’s richer, and it also gets louder compared to the iPhone SE.

Now let’s talk about the batteries.

So, we do have a much larger battery on the iPhone 11, which does result in better battery life.

Now do bear in mind that you are powering a larger display on the iPhone 11 compared to that on the iPhone SE, and if things are relative, so it’s not just about numbers.

And although usage varies from person to person, I think we’ll be getting around 25 to 30% better battery life on the iPhone 11.

Now, for charging, both of these do come with a five-watt charger out of the box, but they do support up to 18 watts of fast charging.

That charger you would have to buy separately.

And both devices also support Qi wireless charging.

This is something that I really like.

It’s very, very convenient.

And finally, let’s talk about the price.

This is one of the biggest separating factors between these two.

The iPhone SE is coming in at a very competitive $400, or around 420 pounds, whereas the iPhone 11 is starting at around $700, or around 730 pounds.

So you’ve got about a $300 or around 310-pound difference between these two, which means the iPhone SE is around 60% of the
price of the iPhone 11.

Both devices do come in a 64, 128, as well as a 256 GB option, and I guess the question is: is it worth spending the extra 300 on the iPhone 11?

Well, in my opinion, getting that better display, the better cameras, the better battery life, speakers, et cetera, I do think it is worth it, personally.

But if you’re on a budget, you don’t really need those additional features, you maybe want an iPhone, but you’ve not been able to get the iPhone 11 because of that price, then the iPhone SE is going to be a really, really good option.

Maybe you want to buy a phone for your kids.

Maybe you’re in the Apple ecosystem, you’ve got things like FaceTime, iMessage.

Maybe you want to get a phone for your parents or something.

Again, the iPhone SE is going to be a really, really good option.

I think it’s going to sell really, really well.

That’s what I think.
