iPhone XR vs iPhone SE

Which one is best for you?

iPhone SE was a hugely popular release for Apple in 2020, returning to the much-loved classic square-edged iPhone design, and delivering a compact phone which can easily be operated with one hand.

Its fast A13 Bionic Chip with a third generation Neural Engine is the next generation up from iPhone XR's A12 Bionic Chip. iPhone XR's 6.1-inch Liquid Retina HD screen is much bigger than iPhone SE 4.7-inch Retina HD display, but both phones have a glass and aluminium design, a single rear 12-megapixel Wide camera with Portrait Lighting, and are splash, water and dust resistant. iPhone SE has twice as many Portrait Lighting features as iPhone XR, but you can find contour, natural, and studio filters on both models.

They both sport a 7-megapixel front camera with a ƒ/2.2 aperture and Retina Flash for improved definition in low light. iPhone XR also comes with Smart HDR for added detail, as well as an extended dynamic range for video at 30 frames per second.
