- For Improved camera
A new range of color variants
Excellent battery life
A design very similar to XR
Camera bump a bit sharp
No headphone dongle in the box
Perhaps this is going to be one of the many major surprises from Apple, we never know. But for now let's stick by what we know, shall we?
The iPhone 11 is really much of a surprise, considering it brings more advanced camera technology (which comes in the form of camera capabilities and the processing power under the hood) and yet it offered it for far less than the iPhone XR cost in 2018. That is simply WoW! This latest device combines a large 6.1-inch display with a premium-feeling body and comes in an array of colors too.
The most incredible feature of this latest iPhone comes in the form of its imaging capabilities: with two sensors on the rear, which means one can now snap wider-angle photos alongside the conventional main 'images.' And guess what; each of these sensors is 12 MP, and are raised from the rear of the device in a square glass enclosure - which we are not enamored with visually.
The most impressive feature of this phone's imaging quality is the night mode. The new iPhone 11 brings brightness and clarity to impossibly dark scenes, meaning one can now take some pretty snaps even in the darkest of rooms. And the portrait mode, defocusing the background, is improved on iPhone 11.
Improvement on XR
It is quite stunning that the new iPhone, which is quite superior in features and style to XR, comes at a rather lower price than what XR was released for last year. Although the two models are quite similar in design, iPhone comes in six color variants including a new lilac and mint green shade to select from. Just like the older iPhone 6,7, 8, and XR, the edges of this phone still has the same feel, although the larger 6.1-inch display in the center takes up most of the phone's frontal view (although with slightly thicker borders around the screen).
User experience and display
Either under the sun or at night, this eye-catching iPhone boasts a display that is bright enough and responds well under finger with bright sunlight performance perfect for videos, movies, streaming.
If you think your iPhone XR had the best battery life, brace yourself, and welcome to the world of iPhone 11. According to Apple, this latest model comes with an hour-longer battery than that of the highly impressive XR. But sadly enough there is no fast charging for iPhone 11 users because Apple has chosen not to include a fast charger in the box, which means once your battery is depleted, you will have to wait around three hours to get your device spiced up again.
Speed and response
In a fast-paced world like ours, the least we can do is use a fast-paced device too. And on that front, the Apple iPhone doesn't fall short. The overall speed and performance of the iPhone 11 are quite robust, and at its current speed, it is obviously one of the most powerful phones out there, according to our early benchmarks. Given you can edit 4K footage at 60 frames per second, it seems like a pretty powerful device to have in hand, especially if you are a social influencer.
How to buy iPhone 11
Overall, this is a majestic triumph for Apple, one that can be purchased for as little a starting price of $699 (₤729, AU$1,199). The release date has been slated for September 20, which is pretty good timing - compared with the XR which came later than the XS in 2018 - for those looking to get hold of Apple's affordable new device. Quite simply, upon its release, you can order your new iPhone online, using an online coupon code, or you can simply walk up to the nearest tech store around you. Either way, be sure to get the mint green shade (my ultimate choice, beautiful), that is if your taste aligns with mine, LoL.
