With the release of the iPhone SE’s local price, it positions itself as an affordable premium device for both Apple fans and even for those who want to dip their feet at experiencing iOS. But for those on the other side and trying to switch to Android, the Xperia Z5 Compact is a smartphone that matches the sub-Php30K price of the 64GB SE. We take a quick side-by-side look at their specs in this comparison list.
The iPhone SE has a smaller display at 4 inches while the Z5 Compact is at 4.6. This is subjective and depends on the preference of the user. Because of the slight difference in display, the smaller SE squeezes a bit more pixels than the Z5 Compact’s. Other than that, the only advantage of the SE, on paper alone, is a bigger 64GB internal storage.
On the other hand, the Xperia Z5 offers a more resolution-packed camera with its 23-megapixel rear shooter and 5.1MP front optics. Battery-wise, the Z5 offers almost double the capacity with its 2700mAh battery.
Both are priced for more than Php29,000 with only a few hundred pesos apart. You may opt to go for SE that enjoys the benefits of iOS or go for the water-resistant Z5 Compact. If you’re eager to know more, you may read our review for the Xperia Z5 Compact.
