Which one is best for you?
The iPhone 11 Pro Max is a premium phone with impressive performance and cutting-edge tech – so how does it compare to the snappy newcomer, iPhone SE?
The iPhone 11 Pro Max has a far larger screen than the iPhone SE’s 4.7-inch Retina HD display. As well as having a whopping 6.5-inch screen with Super Retina XDR display, the iPhone 11 Pro Max also comes with the longest battery life in any iPhone, 12-megapixel triple rear cameras, and Face ID. However, both phones come with the powerful A13 Bionic Chip processor, 4K video recording, Smart HDR for photos, and Wide True Tone colour displays. Plus, good things come in smaller packages – the 148g iPhone SE is compact and slimmer than the iPhone 11 Pro Max. You’ll also find that both phones are splash, dust and water resistant.
The iPhone SE single 12-megapixel Wide rear camera and 7-megapixel front camera take good, high-definition shots – but people who love taking photos may feel more at home with the 12-megapixel rear triple display on the iPhone 11 Pro Max, including Ultra Wide, Wide and Telephoto cameras, Night mode, and Brighter True Tone flash. There are some similarities – both phones come with portrait mode with advanced bokeh and Depth Control, as well as six portrait lighting effects including natural and contour lighting.
Both phones have wireless charging and are fast-charge capable, as well as having long-lasting lithium ion batteries. The iPhone 11 Pro Max may be not as pocket-friendly as the iPhone SE, but it’s definitely got the edge in terms of battery power for streaming, gaming and watching films.
