iPhone 11, A Modern, Well Made Smart Phone

iPhone 11

The design of the iPhone 11 has not received so many changes compared to the XR. The same glass and aluminium, the same thickness of the stroke around the screen, which is still noticeably thicker than the Pro version.

Except that the water resistance has improved – the iPhone can be immersed for half an hour in water to a depth of teo meters.

There are noticeable changes only on the back cover: an enlarged camera unit, a logo that moved closer to the center, a missing iPhone inscription and glossy glass – look the same as in the XR.

iPhone 11 and iPhone XR Cameras

The display also remained unchanged. This is the LCD screen that Apple calls Liquid Retina. It knows how to adapt to the surrounding lighting and supports Haptic Touch – tactile feedback with a long press on the screen. The design of the iPhone 11 has not received so many changes compared to the XR.

 Except that the water resistance has improved – the iPhone can be immersed for half an hour in water to a depth of 2 meters.

Cameras

As already noted, the iPhone 11 has two rear cameras: wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle, while in XR there was only one. In addition, new program modes have appeared in the new iPhone: the main one is night mode. We took comparative shots on the iPhone 11 and XR.

The iPhone camera, like a year ago, is good in the light and acceptable at dusk. With the current parameters of the module, this is a clear ceiling, and Apple reached it a few years ago. It is very good that the company understands this and improves the software. However, all the “charms” of digital image enhancement, such as sharping on wires, foliage and grass, are still visible to the experienced eye. The sensor and optics are simply not able to resolve such small details, so the program simply draws them. From far away it looks believable.

Unfortunately, no matter how hard Apple tried to promote its cameras, it has long been clear to everyone that they won’t replace full-fledged cameras. Well, maybe on instagram. The camera in the smartphone is still a nice bonus, not a professional tool, and there is no point in demanding masterpiece results from it, at least in technical terms. But all sorts of artistic gadgets – it is still interesting.

Autonomous Work and Heating

We used the iPhone 11 for several days in normal mode, exploiting it precisely as the main smartphone. The result is very encouraging: for two days he lives quite well. The best thing is to charge it once every two nights. That is, you charge it, use it during the day, at night it is without charging, use it the next day, come home in the evening and put it on charge until the next morning. Over time, this figure will deteriorate, but still it is very, very good.

The test results of battery life in different modes with a screen brightness of 100 cd / m² are presented in the table.

We tested the iPhone 11 in only one of these modes – in 3D games. And there he had a result of 5 hours 25 minutes. Thus, the new iPhone is almost twice as economical in this mode! Excellent!

Sound: Stereo with Dolby Atmos

One of the novelties of this year’s iPhone was the Dolby Atmos sound. As Apple says on its website, with this improvement “Sound circulates around you in a 3D space. You will feel at the center of the action.” Is it really like that? Well, it true that the sound acquires a slight atmospheric effect, but from there to talk about surround sound there is a stretch.

The main speaker is located on one of the grilles on the bottom edge, the one to the right of the Lightning port. This is the one with the highest volume, while the secondary, located in the handset that we found in the notch, has a lower volume. The combination of both gives us that atmospheric effect of which he spoke. This works exceptionally well with quality bluetooth speakers and headphones.

Screen: Repeating A Somewhat Familiar Formula, But One That Works

We have already seen that the iPhone 11 repeats size and weight, but there is not everything left. It also repeats with the same screen, a 6.1-inch IPS with resolution 1,792 x 828 pixels. This configuration gives us a concentration of 326 pixels per inch, the density that Apple baptized as ‘Retina’ with the iPhone 4. Currently, the iPhone 11 Pro has a density of 458 points per inch, but the base model is still in 2010 figures.

Findings

iPhone 11 is a decent quality model, the most interesting of the new line in terms of price and features. The main thing is that there is a night mode for taking photos, like the Pro models, and there is an ultra-wide-angle camera (in addition to the main wide-angle). Yes, there is no third camera – with a telephoto lens. And in the kit there is no charger with increased power. But this, perhaps, is a list of obvious differences from senior comrades and is exhausted (plus, of course, the screen). The iPhone range keeps being improved by Apple.

Otherwise, everything here is at the highest level. For example, almost 4 GB of RAM, like the Pro models (whereas in the previous generation the iPhone Xr was inferior to the Xs / Xs Max models in this parameter), the same processor … Note the increased battery life, especially in high-load modes. Apparently, the new SoC is really more energy efficient.
