iPhone SE vs Galaxy S9

Which one is best for you?

iPhone SE still has good specs for an older model, including the same 12-megapixel camera that featured in iPhone 6s. The more recent Galaxy S9, not surprisingly, has a few more up-to-date features, including a dual aperture camera that adapts to light levels to give better results.

If you like a pocket-sized phone, iPhone SE may be a good choice, but if you want to explore the world of Augmented Reality or unlock your phone with a glance, the more recent Galaxy S9 might be the one for you.
