iPhone 11 is the cheapest model of the 11 series and the successor to last year’s 10 are what’s been upgraded since last year and compared to the Pro versions but source of trade-offs would you had to live with. Let’s find out in our four of you.
Look and Style:
Looks wise the iPhone 11 does not bring many surprises, It is quite similar in appearance to last year’s iPhones it is made of ion strengthened glass on the front and the back its frame is made of brushed aluminum through rather than the stainless steel. You get the more premium 11 Pearl Models the IPhone 11 comes in a set of new colors and the purple one we have looks snazzy and fresh plus the new square camera setup makes it stand out compared to the Pro model of the finish here is not frosted but glossy so it will get smudged more easily and is not quite as scratch resistant.
The water resistance has been bumped up from IP 67 to IP 68 this year, So now it can survive under 2 meters of water for half an hour, The Pro Models can go twice that depth.
Size and Screen:
The Size is quite comfortable in the hand a Bit larger than the 11Pro, But still okay for on-handed use actually the dimensions and weight are the same as last year’s iPhone 10 are along that same vein. The iPhone 11 Screen is also exactly the same as the 10 it is a 6.1 inch IPS LCD with a sizable notch cut out and a pixel density of 326 PPI. The Bezels are thicker here than on the iPhones with OLED Screens, You get used to it but they do stand out when you first see them just like last year’s 10 are the screen is excellent with good contrast and accurate colors, The true tone feature will automatically adjust white balance based on the ambient light and though the panel is not quite as sharp as the Pro models OLED screen. It was hard for me to tell the difference with a naked eye however something the iPhone 11 offer is HDR 10 support or Dolby visions which are available on the higher tier models. It does bring the same low touch latency through thanks to 120Hz input poling, It is a nice booster for gaming but sadly the screens refresh rate is still capped at the regular 60Hz Maximum. Brightness is good we measured up to 640 units with a manual slider there should be no problem using the phone outdoors.
Unlocking the Phone is quite secure with Apple’s Face ID which uses 3D Facial mapping, It is quite fast as well but still requires you to swipe on the screen after you have been recognized.
For Audio the iPhone 11 pro has a pair of stereo loudspeakers they are not as balanced as those on the pro model which has more Bass from the top speaker, But they still have a rich sound with a very good measured loudness and support for spatial audio.
No Headphone Jack:
It’s no surprise that there is no headphone jack here and Apple still does not bundle an adapter but you do get Ear Pods in the box that you can plug directly into the Lightning port.
iOs and new Features:
iPhone 11 runs the latest iOs 13, Its quite familiar though does bring a few new features to the table one such features is a system wide dark mode which can turn all of your white menus into black unfortunately since this is an LCD screen, you don’t save Power Like you would on an OLED but hey it still looks cool. Another change from before is that instead of 3D touch which activated context-sensitive actions based on the pressure of your finger on the screen.
RAM and CPU:
If you end up buying the 64Gb option you might run out of space pretty easily inside the iPhone 11 is Apples’s new 13 Bionic chipset and along with that is 4Gb of RAM performance here is just the same as on the Pro version that is to say brilliant, It’s unmatched by anything in the Android world. The iPhone 11 aces benchmarks providing 20% better CPU performance over last year’s chipset it does a great job at staying cool too, They say heat dispersing graphene layers so sustain performance for something like heavy gaming is great without much thermal throttling on top of the A13 is more power efficient than last year’s chip.
The iPhone 11 ha a 3100mAh power battery just a little bigger than 10R, But Battery Life is much better here, we measured a great endurance reading of 94 Hours in proprietary battery tests, this is even better than the iPhone 11 Pro perhaps due to the different power draw from the screens .
There is support for 10 Watt Fast charging like on the Pro Models but here it does not come with a phone, You only get a 5 Watt one that charges the phone from zero to only 18% and half an hour whereas the faster charger would get you up to 55%.
There is support for QI Wireless charging too Apple does not make a Charging Pad so you need a third party one.
The Cameras plural here unlike the iPhone 10R is single Camera now on Top of the 12 Megapixel Main Camera there is a new 12 Megapixel Ultra Wide Shooter. The Thing that is missing though is the Third Telephoto Camera that comes with a Pro Version.
