Camera quality is one of the defining characteristics of modern smartphones. Now that performance is largely the same across mid-range phones, it’s the image quality that tends to be the decision maker for many, if not most, buyers. The Google Pixel 6a has established itself as one of the best camera smartphones available if excellent image quality is what you crave but have a limited budget. However, the iPhone SE (2022) is a solid affordable alternative for anyone curious about Apple’s ecosystem. When we reviewed the phone, we found it to pack a rather good (though slightly inflexible) camera system.
Clearly, prospective smartphone buyers are likely to be tempted by both sides of the garden. In our direct Google Pixel 6a vs Apple iPhone SE camera comparison, we aim to find the definitive mid-range camera champion.
