Recently, Apple introduced the second generation of the iPhone SE, which has the same design as the iPhone 8, but with a new camera sensor and one of the company’s most powerful processors: A13 Bionic. But how the new iPhone SE’s camera and processor are compared to the old iPhone 8? Today we have two videos that compare the camera and performance of the two models.
We know that in the new iPhone SE a single camera is installed, as in the iPhone 8, and all the differences are due to the software and the new single-chip system. And therefore, a legitimate question arises as to whether the iPhone SE camera is better than the iPhone 8 camera. Let’s find out.
As you can see, there is a difference, but not always, and always not very significant. In the iPhone SE, HDR works a little better, stabilization is better, sometimes the detail is a little better, and the most significant difference is the presence of portrait mode, which is not in the iPhone 8, as well as shooting at night, where the novelty shows itself already noticeably better.
So is the new iPhone SE camera better than the iPhone 8? Camera tests show that the devices are almost equal. Thus, the camera is definitely not a reason to change the iPhone 8 to the second-generation iPhone SE.
iPhone SE vs iPhone 8 Speed test
As you can see, here everything is not as many might think. Applications are launched almost simultaneously, except that at the first launch some programs launch faster on iPhone SE, but the difference is small. Even games run about the same. Moreover, specifically in this test, the difference in the amount of RAM is also not visible. The most impressive thing is not just the lack of any visible difference when converting video to iMovie, but even the winning of the iPhone 8, albeit only for a split second. However, it is unlikely that such a situation will be observed in any such application.
What is the outcome? In general, the SE is not much superior to the 8, and hardly worth changing from the second to the first. The only thing the new product clearly wins is the term of support from Apple.
