YouTube channel Brandon Butch has shared a speed test video showcasing the new Google Pixel 4a released on Monday, against Apple’s iPhone SE (2020), in a shoot out between the latest ‘budget’ smartphones.
The test puts both phones through a boot test, app launch test, multitasking test, gaming, web browsing test, Wi-Fi speed test and more.
The Pixel 4a has a Snapdragon 730 processor and 6GB of RAM, while the iPhone SE is powered by Apple’s A13 chip and has 3GB of RAM.
The boot up test saw the Pixel 4a load faster, while the app launching test was a pretty close race between both phones. Overall, Butch says he was “surprised” at how well the Pixel 4a performed versus the more expensive iPhone SE.
The Pixel 4a costs $479 in Canada and comes with, 128GB of storage. An equivalent iPhone SE with 128GB storage costs $669 CAD, a $190 premium over the Pixel 4a.
