iPhone 11 Full Review

iPhone 11 : DESIGN

Its ever seductively sleek looks are now more defined making it look even sharper, sure to make heads turn. The sleeker size makes it very easy to fit snugly in one hand. The front camera notch is retained from its predecessor, iPhone X. The iPhone is more durable as it comes with a better IP 68 water & dust resistant and waterproof in two meters for up to 30 minutes and fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating. The rear camera housing bump which comes in a matte finish might not sit right with some people. Although it isn’t that apparent.

iPhone 11 : DISPLAY

The iPhone 11 sports a 6.1 inch LCD IPS display with optimum 326 ppi and an impressive max brightness of 625 nits. The display is unlike its predecessors which were shipped with an OLED display. Some may miss the crispness of the OLED display.


iPhone 11 : SOFTWARE

The iPhone 11 ships with iOS 13 which carries many improvements & new features above the previous version and features like Face recognition, Siri & Face ID as standard. It gets a redesigned brilliant camera app that does true justice to its dual-lens rear camera setup. The new app supports slo-mo video up to 240fps and a scroll wheel for selecting different lenses. The camera app also features the all-new Automatic night mode which allows the camera to take better & brighter low light & night time pictures.
The latest iOS 13 update brings a new deep fusion feature that will use AI and machine learning for image processing. This new tech for the camera is ready to revolutionize the camera phone photography.



iPhones are built to use their hardware as effectively as possible. They work many times better on half the RAM, than their closest competitors and still manage to save some of their horsepower. Whether you’re a hard-core gamer, a social media crawler, a binge-watcher of your favorite shows or just a highly active ‘too much on my plate’ corporate fellow, the new iPhone 11 is a perfect match for every human. It keeps up with your requirements without even a tiny hiccup (or lag) and keeps you two steps ahead of the crowd. Tasks such as browsing, chatting, Scrolling through Instagram or Facebook simultaneously is effortless to switch between. Harcore gaming drains battery faster but still is easy as a breeze with most games. Whatever you throw at the iPhone, it performs really well. However it may feel a bit sluggish if multiple apps are kept open for a longer period of time, due to cache build up.


iPhone 11 : BATTERY LIFE

The 3110 mAh powerhouse keep your iPhone alive for a whole day very easily, thanks to it’s very capable and coupled iOS 13. Battery usage goes down to minimum when the phone is idle. Overall good battery life.

One lens is an f/2.4 ultra-wide-angle lens with a 120-degree field of view and an f/1.8 wide-angle lens, which is an ideal combination for ultra-wide & clear as day pictures. It supports Spacial Audio & Dolby Atmos with its dual speakers.
