Traditionally, a few days before the start of sales, Western publications published the first reviews of the iPhone 11 .
The smartphone received high marks. Journalists were satisfied with the set of features that the smartphone provides for $ 699.

A phone that most people should buy.
This is a great phone with amazing battery life and one of the best cameras I’ve ever seen on a smartphone.
If you want to get advanced technology, you can spend another $ 300 and buy the iPhone 11 Pro or one of the flagships on Android. But most people should not think about it: just buy an iPhone 11. You will be happy.

The only significant differences between the iPhone XR and the iPhone 11 are the cameras, slightly improved battery life, and the processor.
Among the shortcomings, Nilai Patel noted the buggy iOS 13 so far, the lack of fast charging in the kit and the presence of only one large size.
The iPhone 11 is the most attractive iPhone Apple has ever made.
With the addition of an ultra-wide-angle camera, night mode, improved selfie mode, better A13 Bionic processor, gigabit LTE, Wi-Fi 6 and priced from $ 699, the iPhone 11 is the most interesting iPhone Apple has ever had.
The iPhone 11 has a 120-degree wide-angle camera. And I think that is right. You can always simulate the blur of a frame to create a portrait shot, but you cannot increase the viewing angle using software.
Since the iPhone 11 has an ultra-wide-angle camera, it can now get more information about the depth of the picture, and not just rely on the mask, as the iPhone XR did. This allows you to get better portrait shots and much more, including portrait photographs of your cats and dogs.
The iPhone 11 is so good that you (probably) don’t need a Pro.
In addition to the new colors, the iPhone 11 has not changed much compared to the XR. Its body is still made of aluminum, not stainless steel.Topic: What is the difference between iPhone 11 and iPhone XR
If you were hoping that the iPhone 11 will get an updated screen, I’m sorry, not this time. You can still see the individual pixels if you look very closely at the display. True, how often are you going to do this? For everyday use, low resolution is invisible . However, I would like Apple to reduce the frames that surround the screen.

For most of this year, I used the iPhone XR as my primary smartphone. Of course, I sometimes miss 3D Touch and a telephoto lens, but the combination of high performance and excellent autonomy made me forget about these minor flaws.
IPhone 11 is probably not worth buying if you have an iPhone XR or XS, but for everyone else, this is the easiest way to get the flagship iPhone without losing $ 1,000.
This is not the best iPhone you can buy, but it is certainly very good for the money.
The iPhone 11 along with the iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max runs on the new A13 Bionic processor. This chip is undoubtedly one of the best evidence of Apple’s ongoing innovation, although most people are not interested in the number of transistors in the processor. They just want to know how much faster the new iPhone.
Phones are fast. All applications launch quickly. Apple Pay and Face ID are a little faster.
However, the iPhone 11 is nothing special . He did not change the screen refresh rate. It does not have a fingerprint scanner under the display. It does not support 5G networks. It cannot charge other devices wirelessly. And when it comes to the camera, it seems like the iPhone 11 is playing catch-up.Topic: iPhone 11 has reverse charging, but Apple turned it off
But I still think that the iPhone 11 is a very good smartphone, albeit not as futuristic as we would like.
The best mid-range iPhone ever.
After spending a week with the iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, I began to realize that they were all the same in my soul, with some key additions to Pro. The difference between these phones is much smaller than, say, between the iPad and iPad Pro. In fact, we can say that all these phones are Pro.
Apple has made impressive advances in camera quality, like so many other phone makers. The iPhone 11 captures video so superbly that it can be used as a replacement for some professional cameras.
But there are a few nuances. I shot some test videos and noticed that stabilization works better with the main wide-angle camera. In addition, the Night mode does not work in the video, so in dark places you can’t see something.
iPhone XR now costs $ 100 less. Prices start at $ 599. If you do not need a wide-angle camera and you do not take pictures at night, I would advise you to pay attention to the XR. If you already have an iPhone XR, then on the iPhone 11 it is not worth changing.
