iPhone Xs Max vs iPhone SE 2nd Gen


vs

Migrating from the iPhone Xs Max to the iPhone SE 2 gets you a slightly faster device in a much smaller package. Instead of the 6.5-inch Super Retina HD OLED found on the Xs Max, the iPhone SE 2020 offers a 4.7-inch Retina HD display based on LCD technology. But don’t let the traditional design and home button with Touch ID fool you; the iPhone SE 2 packs the powerful A13 Bionic chip with third-generation Neural Engine. Moving to the iPhone SE 2nd generation also means that you lose the secondary telephoto camera, but overall image quality is increased thanks to next-generation Smart HDR for photos.
