Google’s Pixel 4A or Apple’s iPhone SE? In this episode of Full Frame, Becca Farsace put both cameras to the test. Because the best camera you can buy for under $400 in 2020 is on a smartphone. It’s an all-out camera battle in NYC.
Correction at 4:00: The zoom function on both of these cameras is digital, not optical.

Pixel has the post processing so take some time to improve the photo.iphone hasn't that feature(HDR++) so open quickly.but if you want the best 4to,you should choose pixel..you should understand that😅

Speaking as someone who does photography for a living, the Pixel 4a gives you a lot more control and freedom than the iPhone SE so I definitely prefer the Pixel 4a. Having said that though, if you are the type of person who has never heard of the rule of 3 and knows nothing about f stops and iso (i.e. most people) then the iPhone SE is the one for you

Am sorry to say this , but your boosting for SE is way up there ,keeping in mind the price and one more thing i can give se a thumbs are more on performance as it has A13flagship processor but this when its comes to stock android and camera its a double thumbs up for pixel.and keep it in a mind android and iphone are totally different

The verge is like Apple insider, according to them pixel has never beaten a iPhone in a camera battle. And the one year the pixel 2 objectively beat the iPhone XS they said “camera isn’t everything”

For camera I will choose the SE cause I like its warm and fuzzy look and in case of night time, I really can't remember I have clicked any picture in complete darkness,,,, the pictures I generally take at night are of perhaps some dimly lit shops or of Ferris wheels in a festival or something like that,,,and that seemed to look fine on the SE

For me is the 4a, the screen is bigger, the batery is bigger, night mode is usable, has audio jack, has usb c... so much things, for 50 dollars less. come on Apple, put a bigger screen usb c phone jack night mode and you got this...yes you got a big processor, but a ferrari motor on a lada, doest compensate the minuses.

For starters, dynamic range on iphone SE is a lot better and the video quality is nuts, the colors are punchy but not too much like what pixel is doing, its just really a bummer that night mode wasn't included but. But I admire how the pixel do its portrait mode, its more realistic because of the way it zooms in.

You can recreate wide angle shots on the pixel with photosphere, they come out decent in good lighting conditions.

Love The Verge, but this was a bad video. The mistakes made in this comparison were such rookie ones, you notice these in very small tech channels that don’t have the kind of experience The Verge’s team has. #1 Photo samples barely stayed on screen for a second or two. #2 In some cases, framing was different on each phone, so how does the viewer make a fair comparison? (See photo of poker cards on table) #3 Audio samples from each phone were in different clips (like the one where the iPhone audio was recorded in the outdoors, and the Pixel’s, in a car). Again, how do you compare the two?

iPhone SE is not under 400, iPhone could reach to cost you even more than 600. If you want the extra memory, the very expensive cases, the wireless buds, the very expensive dongles, and many other expensive accessories.

It's not that hard as has been made in this video. pixel 4a takes better pictures and iPhone Se takes better video. But I knew Becca would go with iPhone SE. Just knew it.

Based off the results of MKBHDs camera competitions, I think it's NECESSARY to show the results when uploaded to various sites. At this price point, that's pretty much the only place the pictures are ending up and being viewed. Would be interested in this comparison.

How does the pixel portrait mode pair with the moment wide or 14mm fisheye lens? I've been thinking about purchasing the wide lens just to counteract the zoom in that the pixel does with portrait photos.
