It is excellent and comes with one of the best cameras while also having a terrific battery life. It is great where it counts but users who love high ended phones can opt for the iPhone 11 Pro. It measures 5.94×2.98×0.33 inches and comes with a 6.1inchdisplay screen. The phone comes with 128 GB of internal storage. Supporting the device is an A13 chipset that is simply a whole package as it comes with a CPU, GPU image signal processor, etc. these aspects are claimed to be faster than that of the A12 chipset that was seen in phones such as the iPhone XR.
The device packs a dual main camera setup that consists of 12MP+1MP and a single selfie camera 12MP. It features a 3110mAh battery while the sound is supported by Dolby Atmos with connectivity options including Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0. This is definitely just the phone for you.
iPhone 11 is so identical to iPhone XR except for the camera system and color variants. The available colors include green, yellow, red, black, white, and purple which give us a 90s throwback vibe. Similarly, the iPhone XR, comes with glossy fingerprints that easily attract fingerprints however you can check out the iPhone 11 Pro as it comes with a matte finish at the back that gets rid of the fingerprint problem.
The glass back is more durable than the previous iPhone versions but is stronger and more durable. This device comes with water resistance of up to 2 meters of depth up to 30minutes which is an improvement over XR. The back of the phone brings about a completely new look on the back. While the iPhone XR came with one camera, iPhone 11 has two cameras which include a wide-angle and a new ultra-wide-angle.
Both lenses have been vertically aligned and are placed on a rounded square of glass that protrudes slightly from the back. The edges of the phone still have the same feel as that of the iPhone 6,iPhone 7, and iPhone 8 although there are slightly thick borders around the screen.
Liquid Retina Display
Contrary to the iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 comes with a 6.1-inch display that utilizes LCD technology rather than OLED. You are getting a decent display as the screen is clear, bright, and sharp despite having a resolution of 1792×828 pixels. This is however lower than the iPhone 11 Pro’s resolution which stands at 2436×1125 pixels.
The true-tone feature will automatically adjust the white balance based on the ambient light. It has a 60Hz refresh rate making your animations smooth and fluid. Dark mode makes your general user interface and Apps dark to protect you from the harmful blue light at night to make your experience less straining and immersive.
Apple has outdone itself by introducing spatial audio for its iPhone 11, It gives out a fuller and deeper sound field than what was seen before while also featuring Dolby Atmos support. How about connecting your Airpods and enjoying the improved sound system while stuck up on jam or taking a stroll(check out affordable AirPods. You can have more fun watching your movies, listening to your music, and playing games with an able speaker. You also get a pair of ear pods that you can plug directly into the lightning port.
Cameras are the big deal when it comes to Apple iPhone 11 are the two 12MP cameras that are upgraded from the single 12MP that was seen in iPhone XR. The back features the originally placed 12MP wide-angle lens that is also joined with a 12MP ultra wide-angle camera that has a 120-degree field. This new ultra-wide-angle camera allows taking wide-ranged photos.
The front camera has also seen great improvements as we get 12MP which is improved from 5MP that was registered in the previous iPhone. Video taking has also been included while a new video feature named QuickTake will allow you to take short videos by holding your fingers down via the shutter button in order to start recording and thereafter letting go to stop the recording. Also supported is the slow-motion video on the selfie side which was missing in previous versions such as iPhone SE. You can take slofies at 1080p and 240ps.
When the light gets low, the camera will automatically switch to night mode. The quality of the photos is superb with plenty of detail, balanced sharpening, excellent colors, and contrast with a balanced exposure. Daylight photos have rich details, impressively low noise, and excellent dynamic range with the colors being accurate and vibrant. The contrast is great and the images are sharp.
The Face ID has received a much-awaited upgrade as compared to its predecessors(iPhone X,iPhone 6, etc). Similar to iPhone 11 Pro max and 11 Pro, this device also comes with a face ID which makes unlocking your phone much more secure. It, unfortunately, lacks the fingerprint sensor that was seen in iPhone SE but still makes a good bargain as it uses 3D facial mapping which is quite fast and efficient.
The field of view has been improved and now allows you to glance at your phone from your seat and simply unlock it in a much more secure way. It uses 3D facial mapping for efficiency and is quite fast.
One of the highlights of the iPhone XR had to be the battery longevity which has been well emulated by the iPhone 11. Thanks to the A13 Chipset, the battery is more efficient and has a greater life. While the XR came with a 2,942 mAh battery, iPhone 11 overpowers this with a 3110mAh battery that just makes the phone stand out from previous iPhones.
