Can’t Use All That Power…Today

iPhone SE review: Can mid-range Androids compete? [Video] - 9to5Google

We know that the A13 Bionic chipset is an absolute monster, but while the iPhone SE has a more powerful chipset than just about every single flagship Android phone, it’s kind of like having the fastest car on the dragstrip. Sure, there is plenty of overhead for power-intensive tasks, but you’ll probably never even get 20% of the way to utilizing all of that under-the-hood grunt running in a straight line.

The iPhone SE is targeted at customers who don't buy a new phone every year or two. The advantage of having this power in 2020 is that it will still run well in 2024. I'm astonished how often reviews, especially Android fans reviewing iPhones, dismiss “excessive” performance without considering anything beyond this review cycle.
