Hello everyone. I’m Dileep Gupta and it’s once again time to review this year’s iPhone. As you probably know Apple created three different models the iPhone 11 the 11 pro and the 11 pro Macs. The one we’re gonna be looking at today is the iPhone 11 Pro which I chose because I like the size of this one. We’re just going to be focusing on this phone. And as usual I’m going to be doing a ruthless review so I’m going to tell you everything I love what I hate and everything in between with no sugar coating especially considering the price tag.
So what we’ll do is start out with the basic design of the phone followed by the internal hardware. Then onto the performance with stuff like the camera and the battery and then move on to the user experience and software features. And finally, I can talk about more general things I like and dislike about this phone and whether or not it’s worth it.
All right. So first up the general design. The screen is a 5.8 inch OLED screen. Apple is calling the super retina XDR display. And basically it’s just a really good looking OLED screen that’s even brighter than last year’s tennis. There’s still the notch for face I.D. which I will never think is not ugly. And Apple didn’t even shrink it so that’s kind of a bummer on the sides you have what you’d expect with the volume button silent mode toggle the power button and speakers on the bottom along with the lining chat.
Things get a little bit more interesting on the back where there is now a matte finish to the whole thing which I’m definitely a big fan of because it’s way less likely to show fingerprints. And the other big thing is obviously the triple camera setup at the top.
So there’s the regular wide the ultra-wide and the telephoto lens. Then there’s the flash and microphone next to them. We’ll talk more about the cameras later but one thing I don’t like is how there’s basically a double camera pump here. So the whole module is elevated and then each lens is also sticking out.
I’m not a fan of camera bumps in general but I think this is even more likely to get dirt and dust stuck in the crevices.
That being said as a side note the case I have actually extended to the camera bumps so it sits flush on surfaces which I really like. It’s these big in liquid crystal case and I like it because it’s thin and clear so the phone doesn’t feel any bigger. It does tend to discolor over time though but it’s so cheap. I’d like ten dollars you can just buy another one.
iPhone 11 Pro Display Design
Besides the cameras though and the now centered Apple logo the overall body shape and design is pretty much the same as the last two generations of iPhones. Talking a little bit more about the screen though I will say it’s noticeably brighter than the previous tennis at least when it needs to be like in bright sunlight.
It supposedly has 800 nets of typical max brightness which compares to the 10 asked which was rated at just 625 minutes. And when I tested it with my own light meter the eleven pros are reading about 970 Lux versus the tennis at 900 Lux.
Now that’s a different unit from knits. So it doesn’t convert exactly but it still shows that it is indeed brighter. As for how the screen looks generally the iPhone OLED screens are always going to look great. In any case.
So I wouldn’t say I noticed a big difference coming from the tennis but obviously it just looks good and the resolution is 24 36 by eleven 52 at 458 pixels per inch. So that is the same as the task. I am really disappointed though that they did not add a high refresh rate screen this year.
So now that we’ve seen the outside of the phone let’s talk about the internals this spew is apples own a 13 bionics so no surprise is just an improved CPO that’s faster as you would expect. And also apparently more battery efficient the battery capacity for the 11 pro isn’t listed on Apple’s Web site but it is actually 31 90 million amp hours.
iPhone 11 Pro Memory
There are four gigabytes which in my opinion isn’t really enough considering Apple literally branded this as a pro device. And apparently the camera app uses a lot more memory than previously.
I think six gigabytes definitely would have been more appropriate. But I’m not surprised Apple is again just putting in the minimum amount they can get away with here. And when it comes to the storage capacity the base model is still only 64 gigabytes which for a so-called pro phone is kind of a joke.
The next step up is 256 gigabytes which I think is more than enough but does cost an extra one hundred fifty dollars and the 512-gigabyte model cost an extra 350 dollars above the based model I think if Apple made the based model 128 gigabytes that would be perfect
So theoretically it could survive being dropped into the deep end of most pools. Finally for specs we can go over all the cameras including the front-facing camera are twelve megapixels and the three on the back are the regular Wide Angle F Fone point eight aperture the ultra-wide at F two-point four aperture and the telephoto at f 2.0 the front-facing camera is F two point two and is actually capable of slow-motion video at one hundred twenty f P.S. now compared to the back cameras which can do 240 F Yes it’s slow.
