Prepare yourself for some good news. If you are here to find a reason to buy the new iPhone SE, I am going to give you a lot of them. iPhone 8 was a good phone, but what is happening right now in the market can only please me. Let`s see what are the differences between the iPhone SE 2020 and iPhone 8. Let’s get into it!
iPhone 8 was the best choice for your new phone. What is changed?
If you look back in the last year, you will notice that iPhone 8 is a very good phone based on all the reviews online and offline. Considering all that, something changed on April 15. The new iPhone SE from 2020 was launched and it is astonishing! It is a new interpretation of a compact Apple phone from 2016, at a cheaper price, and with better components.
If you put these two phones side by side, you won’t see many differences, because the iPhone SE looks very similar to the iPhone 8, and also iPhone 7. Just like the iPhone 8, the new SE has 5.5 x 2.7 x 0.29 inches and features a 4.7-inch display with a Touch ID-equipped home button. Let’s see the specs on both phones.
iPhone SE 2020 specs vs iPhone 8 specs
Right from the beginning, the starting price for both phones in 2020 is a battle that can easily be won by the SE. The starting price for iPhone SE is $749 in Australia, in the meantime, for the iPhone 8, the starting price was $779. The best part is coming now!
Screen resolution is the same for both, SE, and iPhone 8. 4.7 inches (1,334 x 750)
The CPU is what makes me smile every time i see this phone. The iPhone 8 has an A11 Bionic CPU. The iPhone SE 2020 has an A13 Bionic CPU which is the newest CPU from Apple available on the market. You can find this CPU on iPhone 11, 11 pro, XR
The iPhone SE is available in 64 GB, 128 GB, and 256 GB. The iPhone 8 comes only in 64 and 256 but was later released in the 128gb variant albeit for a limited time only
The rear camera is the same on both phones, 12MP(f/2.2)
The battery life is also the same for SE 2020, and iPhone 8. 12 full hours of internet use.
Because they have the same bezel, dimensions, and frame, Size and Weight are also the same. 5.5 x 2.7 x 0.29 inches / 5.2 ounces for both of them.
Apple iPhone SE back glass is much more resilient than the iPhone 8. Phonebot ran a series of tests on their youtube channel demonstrating how strong the back glass is and its certainly quite impressive. It survived not only some nasty scratch tests but also survived fairly well when got run over by a car! You should check their youtube channel out for some cool videos on iPhone SE. iPhone 8 on the other hand didnt do well in the scratch test department and started showing noticable scratching when using a knife
Apple iPhone SE used the same single lens main shooter as the iPhone XR,XS and XS max. Its ability to take high quality low light and outdoor images blows the iphone 8 camera away. Its like comparing apples with oranges (no pun intended). The new SE takes far more brighter and much detailed pics thanks to its lens’s larger aperture and processors much more realistic image post pocessing.
Why is the iPhone SE 2020 cheaper?
I`ve noticed a change of plans in terms of sales and marketing on Apple. They have got rid of Apple iPhone 8 completely from their website albeit telcos like Vodafone, Optus and Telstra are still selling them via plans until stocks run out. With the new SE 2020 launched at a starting price of $749, I can only think of a new approach in terms of markets, marketing, and worldwide situation
In the end, the new iPhone SE has taken the throne over the iPhone 8. If you want to buy it, you will not regret it.
