We investigate the holographic subregion complexity (HSC) and compare it with the holographic entanglement entropy (HEE) in the metal/superconductor phase transition for the Born–Infeld (BI) electrodynamics with full backreaction. Based on the subregion CV conjecture, we find that the universal terms of HSC remain finite during phase transitions, and the HSC is a good probe to the critical temperature in the holographic superconducting system. Furthermore, we observe that for the operator , the HSC of the superconducting phase decreases first and then increases as the BI parameter increases, which is completely different from that of HEE, and the value of the BI parameter corresponding to the inflection point of HSC is larger than that of HEE. But for the operator , the HSC increases monotonically as the BI parameter increases, which is similar to that of HEE.
