If you still have an iPhone 6s or iPhone 7, is it worth buying a new iPhone SE for 3,299 yuan? A comparative test released by foreign media a few days ago, I believe, can answer the doubts in your letter.
Foreign media iPhonehacks recently conducted performance and speed measurements on the iPhone SE (A13), iPhone 6s (A9), and iPhone 7 (A10). All three phones run iOS 13.4.1, which was released just a few days ago.
Compared to the iPhone 6s, the new iPhone SE was faster in almost all tasks, but the boot time was 4 seconds slower. Scenarios such as application startup, web page loading speed, and iMovie export video should be obviously dominant. The new iPhone SE can export a 1-minute video in 39 seconds, while the iPhone 6s takes 81 seconds to export the same video.
Of course, there’s also a huge difference between the Geekbench scores of the new iPhone SE and the iPhone 6s. The iPhone 6s scored 555 and 1043 points in the single-core and multi-core CPU tests, respectively, while the new iPhone SE scored 1308 and 3212 points, respectively. The same goes for AnTuTu, with the new iPhone SE scoring twice as much as the iPhone 6s.
Compared with the iPhone 7, the advantages of the new iPhone SE are not so obvious. There’s not much difference between the two phones in launching apps or loading websites. There was also little difference between the iPhone 7 and the new iPhone SE in the video export test. Of course, the boot speed is still dominated by the iPhone 7.
iPhonehacks believes that if the iPhone 6s is upgraded to the new iPhone SE, the speed, performance and camera quality will be greatly improved. But if it is the iPhone 7, for most users, it may only feel better to take pictures. Of course, due to its larger memory, it will definitely be more relaxed when running multitasking.
Of course, in addition to speed, the new iPhone SE also brings a lot of additional upgrades. For example, it supports IP67 waterproof, 18W fast charge, 50% charge in 30 minutes, supports Qi wireless charging, supports Gigabit LTE, upgraded 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6, supports Bluetooth 5.0, and the memory is also increased to 3GB.
In addition, in terms of photography, the new iPhone SE has upgraded the portrait mode to support advanced bokeh imaging and depth of field control; portrait lighting effects, supporting six effects (natural light, studio light, contour light, stage light, monochrome stage light and high-key monochromatic light).
