But, are these two devices even close to each other in terms of features? Let’s have a look.

To be honest, it won’t be wise to compare the two, as they both fall in their own segments when it comes to internal specifications. But, if you are someone planning to switch from Samsung to the iPhone or going the other way round, it will be a good idea to hold the two side-by-side.

First, let’s talk about the display. With the iPhone SE, Apple plans to drop down the screen size to 4 inches with an 1136 x 640 pixel resolution. Samsung, on the other hand, doesn’t seem to be compromising on the screen size and packs in a massive 6-inch display offering a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution.
