Apple’s cheap phone offering has a new competitor: the iPhone SE. For its part, the iPhone 11, which until yesterday was the latest and cheapest Apple phone, will now fight to the death for the money of consumers who do not want to pay too much for a phone with the apple logo. And is that if the iPhone 11 was already “cheap” – under the parameters of Apple, of course – with a price of $699, the iPhone SE, with a price of $ 399, has become a very interesting option.
Taking into account the difference in price, we can easily deduce that there will be several features of the iPhone 11 that the iPhone SE does not offer, but in general, if the price is US $399 for an iPhone SE, you will not miss many things about the iPhone 11.

From the outset, we are talking about phones that are very different in size. The iPhone SE is 4.7 inches and the iPhone 11 rises to 6.1 inches. The resolution is also different, being a little better on the iPhone 11. Both offer the same storage options and have the same processing power thanks to the presence of the A13 chip, although it remains to know the exact RAM memory of the new iPhone SE.
The iPhone 11 surpasses the new one in the subject of cameras since it has two rear and one front that, in addition, is more pixels. The iPhone 11 also outperforms in terms of security by Face ID, although some people will prefer the Touch ID (which you will find in the iPhone SE). The battery is likely to be better on the iPhone 11 as well, but we’ll know for sure until we have the iPhone SE in our hands and do the necessary tests.
Which is better? Looking at the specs, the iPhone 11 is a better choice for a bigger screen, Face ID, more and better cameras, among other things. But, the differences also directly affect the price, which is $300 more than that of the iPhone SE.
