Advantages and disadvantages | iPhone SE2 vs Pixel 4a


Benefits of iPhone SE2

The advantage of the iPhone SE2 is that it has the same specs as the iPhone 11Pro, allowing you to enjoy gaming and web browsing at the same speed as the iPhone 11Pro, but in a lighter and smaller size to carry around.

With these specs, as of the date of this writing (2021/08/01), I don’t feel any sluggishness when playing high-load games on the iPhone SE2.

In addition, it supports the latest Wi-Fi6, so if you have a router that supports it, you will be able to use your device with even faster communication.

Disadvantages of iPhone SE2

This was also mentioned as a problem with the iPhone 8, but the battery capacity of 1,821mAh is quite low in this day and age, and is the root cause of the rapid sales of mobile batteries since the launch of the iPhone 7.

In terms of terminals, Android still has the upper hand when it comes to smartphones. Android still has the upper hand when it comes to terminals, as it still uses the Lightning connector, which is exclusive to the iPhone, and therefore requires more cords at home.

Why does the iPhone continue to use the Lightning connector while the iPad and Macbook use Type-C?

Advantages of Pixel 4a

It has the same disadvantages as the iPhone SE2, but it has a very good terminal, Type-C charging, and still has the earphone jack.

In addition, it is much cheaper than the iPhone SE2, although the difference becomes clearer when comparing the same capacity. The battery capacity is also 1.5 times larger than the iPhone SE2, so there are fewer situations where you need to worry about charging the battery even if you use it all day.

Disadvantages of Pixel 4a

The disadvantage of the Pixel 4a is that it is not waterproof or dustproof at all. It’s rare to find a model that doesn’t support waterproofing at this point in time, but we can assume that the company sacrificed this point to keep the terminal area.

In addition, the Pixel series is somewhat weak in terms of contracts, and can only be purchased from Softbank if you try to buy it with a carrier contract.



There are a lot of performance comparisons in the smartphone industry, and if we compare performance, the iPhone SE2 would certainly win. However, (in my opinion), is there any smartphone with current mid-range specs that would be inconvenient for normal use?

If you think about it, the population of smartphone users is mostly light to middle users, and there are only a few users who need high specs. Considering this, I personally recommend the Pixel 4a, taking into account the terminal-related features, charging capacity, minimum camera performance, and price.

What do you consider when choosing a smartphone?
