iPhone SE (2020) Stay-at-Home Camera Test

by birtanpublished on August 21, 2020

Hey it's Joshua for Gaara what's going on everybody all right see me on the front-facing camera of the iPhone SP 2020 Edition and yeah in the last video where I unboxed this phone you were seeing me on the rear camera at 4k 30 this phone can do 4k 60 and you're going

To see a lot more of that here in this video but I just wanted to start off this video on the front-facing camera so you can hear what the audio was like in a more let's say general setting because I'm a bit closer to the phone this time

Around and maybe you can hear the quality because in the last video I actually had to edit the the audio a little bit to boost it up because it was far from me I couldn't do much about the echo but

Let me know what you think of the audio quality right now using the front-facing camera so I'm a bit closer to the microphones anyway what you're seeing right now is yet another work-from-home camera test

This is an interesting one because I spent the entire weekend just using this phone and trying to use it just as my daily driver by doing a lot of camera testing in any case there's a lot to like about what the iPhone se is

Offering especially when you think about its price point and I think for a lot of people ahead of my full review I think for a lot of people they're going to think that this phone actually is a great value because the price is hard to

Ignore yet people should be very aware that Apple is not the only company that's going to be doing stuff like this in the coming months so while the iPhone se is a compelling offering that happens to

Have a very nostalgic let's say design language to it it's not going to be the only phone that might have this level of experience to it for this kind of price point so let's bear that in mind but anyway with my musings aside let's go

Ahead and jump into this camera test which will include a couple of other little tidbits as a work from home general test it is a crazy beautiful day in Southern

California it's slated to get super hot this weekend but that doesn't mean that we should be going out or going to places so if you are watching this from So Cal try not to go to the beach try not to go to any other places walk

Around the neighborhood do the usual thing but for the most part still try to stay in stay home stay safe and stay healthy trying to use the rear camera for now I promise that I'll look a little bit more presentable later on

That video it's just early in the morning I'm actually trying to read on my Kindle out of here right now because the data so nice and I have my coffee modern-day a version of the newspaper LA Times on a Kindle who would have thought

But you know what this is also a good time for me to talk a little bit about what is missing in this camera the fact that I'm going to the rear camera to see if I can get some good shots of you know vlog style using the 4k on the rear

Because there's no 4k on the front but let's not forget the fact that there's only one sense from the back also normally when I do this kind of thing where I reach out and I use the rear cameras from my vlog segments it's

Because there's a wide angle on the back there's one on the iPhone 11 Pro there's one on plenty of other phones but this is not one of those this is a $399 iPhone se I know super chill day but it was kind

Of like a self-care Saturday so coffee in the morning newspaper slash book I get into DDP yoga using the phone with my earbuds and then just making some tea to be able to chill out for the rest of the day which included things like

Settlers of Catan and watching an episode of crash landing on to you so really chill Dave but I think the phone still did a pretty good job all things considered of documenting this first half of the weekend and from there I can

Show you the battery stats from this day as well the battery drained pretty quickly I'm not surprised by that and I was also using the camera app quite a lot speaking of only having full HD or

Rather 1080p on the front-facing camera one thing I wanted to chime in on as far as the experience of youth in the camera app you have to go into the settings and if you want to be recording 4k by default at all times you have to go into

The settings go to the camera portion and make sure that it says 4k at whatever framerate you want I did not realize on that first day of recording that I was defaulting to HD at 34 most of those videos so that's

Partially the reason why I went ahead and rendered this video out at 1080p because most of the footage or rather half of the footage at the very least was not in 4k

Well it's a beautiful weekend here in SoCal really really hot should take the opportunity to enjoy the weather so I just thought I would walk around the neighborhood for a little while of course it's mandatory now to have a mask

On so it goes some masks portrait mode selfies for you coming up in a bit there is a bit of a quark to using the iPhone se right now I do also have my iPhone 11 Pro on me because I'm going to be doing a little bit of a comparison between the

Two oh yeah Sochi in this particular era right now we're probably everybody should be wearing masks and whatnot even though face on lock is really convenient and nice to use well being able to just do the touch ID on the iPhone se turns

Out to people are useful because on my iPhone 11 Pro it won't recognize me because of my face cover I have to say video is a pretty big plus on the iPhone se the quality coming out of it is pretty nice and it's stabilized fairly

Well so you are able to get some smooth shots even with the 4k resolution on the back now the front-facing camera despite all of my grievances over the lack of a higher resolution it still looks fine especially in good conditions as far as

Video is concerned the iPhone se is a pretty good starter content creation tool that invites you to maybe clip on some lenses or try some new things with it kind of like the overhead rig that I did with the T earlier so that you can

Get out of the little box that the iPhone se puts you in at first as far as stills are concerned the low-light shots or what really suffer which is a given and that's why it's a bummer that there's no night mode on this phone and

By the way for this particular day since I was a little bit less on the heavy content creation side I got a little bit better battery life out of this of course the camera is still the majority of my battery usage but here's the

Screenshot of that day's battery usage still got about six a little bit more than six hours worth of screen on time if I could be just a little bit comedic about this the iPhone se is so much a throwback phone that a lot of people who

Will use it will probably sound like old school users by let's say 5:00 p.m. do you have a charger dude you have chartered you have a cable you have a cord but all jokes aside those are things that you

Would probably expect from a phone that cost less than $400 and yes this phone that I am using right now is the $399 edition it is the red edition with 64 gigabytes of storage and of course you're going to pay more if you want

More storage in there speaking of which one final thing that I will mention is that I am already kind of filling up the storage capacity on here because I was recording mostly at 4k at 60 so that pretty much does it for the camera test

You saw a lot of pictures quite a bit of the video and just a glimpse until just sort of what my life has been like in this quarantine era as much as I would love to get out there and do actual real-world camera tests this is kind of

The format that you can expect for the time being let me know what you think in the comments down below let me know what you think of the picture quality of the camera quality in any case thank you so much for hanging out with me kind of

Literally because I just did what I usually do every day for the last 40 days of this quarantine this is what life has pretty much been like and I'm just trying to find ways of using that to show you the camera quality of

Various phones like the iPhone se which you saw today but with all of that said I'm gonna go ahead and call it on this one thank you again for watching subscribe to my channel if you haven't already if you're new here consider

Sticking around and then drop some likes on this video and get into the comment sections let me know what you think about the quality of the cameras from the iPhone se with all that said I will call it on this one and until my next

Video I would just remind you to enjoy our tea everybody
