iPhone SE (2020) vs iPhone XR – Which Should You Choose?

iPhone SE (2020) vs iPhone XR – Which Should You Choose?

iPhone XR and iPhone SE have some differences, but also have a lot more similarities than you might think. I help you decide if you should buy the iPhone XR or buy the new 2020 iPhone SE. I compare the price, the display, do a camera and video comparison and much more. #iPhoneXR #iphone11 #apple

    I have the XR but I just got the SE because I miss its first generation. Only got it yesterday so I need more time with it.

  2. النشبة الجزائري on March 2, 2021 at 11:06 pm


  3. Jigmee W Sikkim on March 2, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    Last year I got SE2020as a birthday gift from my mom and I must say SE is one of the best it has got almost all the features of 11 including A13 Bionic chip for the one who likes small handy phone then must go for SE2020.

  4. Susan daraghy on March 2, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    I wyd probably choose the iphone se its less expensive and its like the iphone 12

  5. Sybren Hindriks on March 2, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    The battery of the Xr is a beast, draining the battery in a day is almost impossible!

  6. MatoHP on March 2, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    I just bought a XR two days ago

  7. layum on March 2, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    if i had money i would pick the xr. my current phone ( 7-plus ) i have a hard time opening it with touch id. i have really sweaty hands all the time.

  8. Mintyツ on March 2, 2021 at 11:10 pm


  9. wholeNwon on March 2, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    My usual phone cost $10 new. Just replaced it with a new LG with 1 yr. of basic service for $30. A friend just gave me an old 5S for a GSM spare. It’s my first Apple product. I can see the appeal but not enough to pay their prices. I do own the stock, however.

  10. Olutoyin Lovelimind on March 2, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    Thank you, best review of both phones on the internet.👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽. I like small as it fits well into small cute ladies bags, in addition to sunglasses, keys, reading glasses 🤓, makeup purse, hair brush. So for these reasons I chose a SE 2020. However, I do like the idea of face ID on the XR , very James Bond kinda thing. 🤔😂

  11. George Linson on March 2, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    Se sucks

  12. Michael Scott on March 2, 2021 at 11:19 pm

    I’m so happy my iPhone is accessible with the help of GRANTWILL_ on |g he’s the best..

  13. YM2120 22 on March 2, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    The iPhone XR won that so easy

  14. Keith McIntire on March 2, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    The SE has the better camera. The XR has better battery life.

  15. Homid_ Clapz on March 2, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    I have the red iPhone se and it is great

  16. SforSean on March 2, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    Se is boy ass wait… That’s the first two letters of my name

  17. Corbin Berger on March 2, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    Here’s the thing with Minecraft no hate but you prbly should have used the same seed because it could effect load time

  18. Bheshaj B on March 2, 2021 at 11:24 pm

    A combination of iphone se n iPad air 4 is going to be gold! It’s a waste to spend too much on an iphone if streaming is your primary requirement.

  19. Jasper Frog on March 2, 2021 at 11:24 pm

    I’m genuinely impressed with both phones, especially the XR being 2 years old

  20. tokyoXgamer on March 2, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    who wanna help me buy and iphone xr i really need this phone for school. please help me out i will love it. my mom doesnt have an income and shes sick

  21. wonho's donut shop on March 2, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    I personally would prefer the XR because of the design but if I were to get one then I’d just get the 11 or 12 for the extra boost

  22. BOURBON on March 2, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    All I do on my phone is texting internet browsing youtube/twitch and listening to spotify. Im gonna get XR.

  23. Michael Scott on March 2, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    I thought it was a scam until GRANTWILL_ on |g did a very great job fixing my iPhone in less than few minutes…

  24. Shiloh Riddle on March 2, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    Just got me the blue one for my birthday

  25. Kiyah Bby on March 2, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    Trying to decide if I wanna get the se or xr 😭

  26. Iru Dantes on March 2, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    How did you shot the potrait mode on iphone xr rear camera? My iPhone Xr can’t capture portrait mode on objects

  27. Adam Humphrey on March 2, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    me only here because im getting the iphone xr tomorrow same as my sisters but my oldest sister already have the iphone 11 and then also my parents are getting a iphone xr i went from iphone 6 to iphone xr

  28. Darky on March 2, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    Is it me or the mic of the Xr seems muffled ?
    Anyway the SE has a great value and the compact size is interesting for people being bored with all the big phones, and for the TouchID
    I’m curious to see whether the SE 3 gonna give
    Maybe an iPhone XR but with TouchID in the side like the iPad Air 4 ?
    Because I doubt the FaceID technology gonna be in a sub 400$ iPhone 🤔

  29. GunsN ́Boses on March 2, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    So SE is hands down winner and still enough money left for extra battery pack.

  30. Joban Pannu on March 2, 2021 at 11:45 pm


  31. thomas dacquisto on March 2, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    I used to have the red se. I have a green 12 mini now

  32. samwizzy1 on March 2, 2021 at 11:47 pm

    Great video!

  33. Mark Angwenyi on March 2, 2021 at 11:48 pm

    The SE would have a larger market share in terms of sales if it were a full screen, without the fingerprint sensor.

  34. Navaneeth Ullasan on March 2, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    Can you give me that iphone xr 😭

  35. Claude A. Thomas on March 2, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    The reason why I like the iPhone SE is because of two reasons 1 the battery don’t go down quick and the speakers are absolutely loud

    That’s why I brought this phone last week

  36. Stickz & Drumz on March 2, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    Hey zollo can u help me out I need a new phone currently on the iPhone 6 and the camera is really crappy can u help me please I need a new iPhone I love taking pictures and it’s hard to get a good picture on the iPhone 6 and i can’t afford a new phone

  37. Orion rxb on March 2, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    Portability is the winner. Plus the se is more powerful, newer, less money, has an original design (if it ain’t broken don’t fix it) I always wanted the biggest phone out there when I was younger. But over the years they got to big.. especially with edge to edge(basically) REALLY stretching my thumb to the top is annoying, especially when we didn’t have to do it for the longest time. The iphone 13 should be the size of the se gen1 with the newer style cameras.. with top and bottom bezels OR only a bezel on the top plus face id for functionality. Or even edge to edge if it’s small enough. Zero bezel and the size of the se gen 1 if the bezels were cut off the phone would be nice too.. (so smaller then gen 1 se but same screen size, edge to edge) with a thicker phone that has more battery.. thickness is the only thing we haven’t really bin going bigger on.. phones are so thin anyway that double the thickness wouldn’t matter at all in your pocket.

    Picture that, smaller then the se gen 1, but edge to edge bezel less display with face id, twice as thick with a solid.. legit battery and new cameras (tripple or whatever) 90hz refresh. Go small, go big. Iphone 13.

    The se in your hand but you took sizers and cut the bezels off.. with fantastic battery life. Thicker more premium phone. 90hz. 1440p display omled (or 4k) with a choise in settings.

    Asking my parents to buy Xr for my visual art thingy…….

  39. Paul Bautista on March 2, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    So the SE is an updated 6S.

  40. zollotech on March 2, 2021 at 11:56 pm

    iPhone XR or SE, which iPhone would you choose or do you use? iPhone XR and thee 2020 iPhone SE are the least expensive new phones from Apple. In this video I show you both iPhone SE as compared to iPhone XR to help you determine which one is best for you. Thanks for watching!

  41. Somnath Jakkaldinni on March 2, 2021 at 11:56 pm

  42. Tara Faith on March 2, 2021 at 11:57 pm

    There is only one genius I can vouch for GRANTWILL_ on |G thanks for helping me with my iphone less than an hour…

  43. Michael Scott on March 2, 2021 at 11:58 pm

  44. Tara Faith on March 2, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    All thanks to GRANTWILL_ on |G no one does it better than him….

  45. Tyana AD on March 2, 2021 at 11:59 pm

    Just marginally faster 12 vs 13 Bionic I’d pick XR also doesn’t have the dated look.

  46. patato pottee on March 2, 2021 at 11:59 pm

    either in the two phone i still can’t afford to buy one

  47. Gambler 4life on March 3, 2021 at 12:01 am

    I bought the Se yesterday moving from android with big screen i needed smaller phone due to hand cramps.

  48. Michael Scott on March 3, 2021 at 12:01 am

    No one is an expert other than GRANTWILL_ on |g, he’s the best and reliable…

  49. Tara Faith on March 3, 2021 at 12:03 am

  50. RG FAN MUSIC on March 3, 2021 at 12:03 am
