Is newer better? We compare iPhone SE 2020 and iPhone SE 2022

A battle between Apple's economy-friendly superheroes

Thinking of upgrading your current smartphone, but stuck between Apple's? iPhone SE 2020 (2nd gen) and iPhone SE 2022 (3rd gen)? If the answer is yes, then you have come to the right place.

In this article, we'll help you navigate the differences and similarities between these two popular models. Despite their striking similarities in design, there are some key features that set them apart, which may influence your final decision. Let's dive right into the subject.

1) Power and Performance – A definite upgrade

At first glance, the iPhone SE 2020 and 2022 look almost identical, but under the hood a lot has changed. iPhone SE 2022 is powered by Apple's A15 Bionic chip, a clear upgrade from the A13 Bionic chip used in iPhone SE 2020. This means faster and smoother performance, which is noticeable when running demanding apps or games.

iPhone SE 2022 also has support for 5G connection, which will give you a faster internet compared to the representative when 5G is available.

2) Camera – Clearer images, regardless of lighting conditions

For those who love taking pictures, the iPhone SE 2022 offers some improvements over its older sibling. Both models come with a 12MP rear camera, but the 2022 model takes advantage of Smart HDR 4 technology, allowing you to get more detailed and dynamic images.

Worth mentioning, if the camera is very important to you, there are other models to look at and we would recommend one of the Pro models such as iPhone 11 Pro .

3) Battery life - A few extra hours can make all the difference

In terms of battery life, the iPhone SE 2022 offers a bit more endurance than the 2020 model. Thanks to the more efficient A15 Bionic chip and improved battery technology, you can expect a few extra hours of use. It can make a big difference if you're often on the go and don't have access to a charger.

4) Price – Importance of budget

In the end, your choice will probably depend mostly on your budget. With a starting price of SEK 1,890 (at the time of writing), the iPhone SE 2020 is a very attractive option for the budget-conscious buyer. In fact, this mobile is one of our absolute top sellers right now, along with iPhone 11 .

On the other hand, if you're willing to pay a little more for improved performance, better camera features, and longer battery life, the iPhone SE 2022 is worth the extra cost, starting from SEK 3,590 (at the time of writing.)

Conclusion: Choose the right iPhone for you

Both of these iPhone SE models offer fantastic value for money, making the choice difficult. If you prefer state-of-the-art features and want the latest in technology, you may find the extra cash for the iPhone SE 2022 to be well-invested.

But if you want a reliable, high-performance smartphone at a more budget-friendly price, the iPhone SE 2020 won't disappoint. iPhone SE 2020 is also available for rent with Refurbly Flex where insurance is included throughout the period to name one of many benefits.

In the end, it's about choosing the model that best suits your needs and budget. You can see our entire range of used mobiles here .
