iPhone SE vs iPod touch 7 Comparison – The Better Backup?

by birtanpublished on October 3, 2020

okay it's what is going on this is a high Apple geek I'm here to help you understand your everyday tech one video at a time and today I want to compare the iPhone se versus the iPod Touch 7th generation we're gonna talk about who these devices are for why you should buy one their prices the differences in features and who should care about those differences and ultimately which device is better now if you just want the bottom line the conclusion to this video if you want to save some time you want to know which device is objectively better than the

Other I'm gonna choose the iPhone se and I'm gonna kind of break that down throughout the rest of this video if you're interested in the details but if you're considering these two devices you just want to know which one to get get the iPhone se now if you don't know what the iPhone se is I have an entire playlist about that device so I will put that up in the corner wherever the YouTube cards are both these devices are aimed at an audience that are not too serious about how fancy their phone is they just want a phone that works that doesn't break the bank so in this video

I'm not gonna be talking about these specs too much but first let's start with the iPod Touch I'm just gonna throw all the specs on the screen so if you are interested you can just pause the video and I actually do the same thing for the iPhone se as well but for the rest of the video I'm gonna talk about how these devices actually work when you're using them so first things first let's talk about the design of these two devices the iPhone se sports a unibody aluminum design with glass on the top and bottom for the cellular and Wi-Fi antennas to pass through now the iPod

Touch has a similar design all aluminum except without the glass and a plastic like black bar on the back to allow signals passed in and out both these devices have headphone jacks so if you want to use them as a dedicated music player you can do that however only the iPhone se has touch ID for biometric security both devices have pretty bad cameras although the iPhone se has a 12 megapixel sensor capable of 4k video recording whereas the iPod Touch is using same sensor from the iPhone 6 now the front-facing cameras are both potatoes

They shoot 1.2 megapixels they're just really bad ok just take my word on this they're really bad but the iPhone se does have live photos which is a feature that the iPod Touch does not have the iPod Touch is essentially an iPhone without the phone part of it you can't call you cannot send text messages but you still have access to services like FaceTime and iMessage anything that is connected to Apple through Wi-Fi you can use on the iPod touch so in my iPod Touch review I talked about several different demographics that the iPod touch

Might be aimed at and if you are in one of those demographics like maybe you're a parent wanting to get your kids something maybe you're trying to give this as a gift to somebody maybe a grandparent or if you don't yet have an iPhone what that'd be an Android or some other type of phone you want to consider getting an iPhone getting into the Apple ecosystem or you just need a backup phone in case your main phone goes down so I've had my iPhone 10 there we go iPhone 10 replaced four times this is my fourth iPhone 10 and when I'm in between phones I have issued so I had to take it

In and swap it out and I don't know it was it was all bad all right so I met the mall right now I'm waiting for an appointment with Apple the Genius Bar and it's gonna be like an hour weight or something yeah so here's what's happening with my phone so when this was down the SIM card is going in the iPhone se because this is my backup phone and if you're looking for a backup device I would steer you away from the iPod touch and towards the iPhone se the fact that the iPhone se is an iPhone versus the iPod Touch why is this such a big deal

You know why is the difference such a big deal because dissembler your antennas in an iphone allow you to make a call even if you don't have a SIM card you don't have any service on the iPhone you won't let you dial emergency services like 9-1-1 or depending on your area 1 1 2 whatever the emergency service is for your area it won't let you do that even if you don't have a phone plan which is something the ipod touch lacks not only are the cellular antennas good for calling emergency services if you wanted to get a phone plan sometime in the future the iPhone

Se has that SIM card slot that you can pop out and put in a new SIM card be sure it works with your carrier or whatnot but otherwise like you can get service in the future now let's talk about the performance on these devices now the iPhone se is rockin the Apple a9 chip and the iPod Touch is rockin the Apple a10 chip so that's one generation ahead of the iPhone se which means it could potentially give the iPod Touch an extra year of software updates maybe iOS 14 but both devices will be supported on iOS 13 for sure and as I mentioned in my iPod Touch review the

Performance is actually pretty underwhelming on the iPod touch sure it has the a10 fusion which is supposed to be a quad-core CPU but they actually removed two of the cores for this iPod touch to support the battery and the story is pretty much the same when it comes to the graphics performance so if you want to buy this iPod Touch for gaming just know that you're really not getting much of a performance boost if at all the only reason why some gains my support hydrographics is because the developer allows it through software again the iPod Touch is not a bad device

I made my case for it in its review but if you're strictly comparing this and the iPhone se as I mentioned at the very beginning I would recommend the iPhone se over the iPod any day the iPhone se simply adds more utility than the iPod Touch would form basically around the same price of $200 sometimes even less now if you're an iPhone se fan I won't recommend you stick around because I have something special to add to the iPhone se playlist and I've talked about earlier yeah I wonder what that could be
