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.

Otterbox Cases For iPhones

Are you looking for the right Otterbox case for your iPhone particularly the iPhone 11, 11 Pro, or Pro Max? Will it be the Otterbox Commuter, the Otterbox Strada, the Otterbox Symmetry, the Otterbox Clear Symmetry, Otterbox Defender, or Otterbox Defender Pro? Wow who knew Otterbox has so many options? And what are they exactly?

OtterBox Defender

We love the Otterbox Defender. It has been around for seven years there aren’t many cases left like it anymore.

In years gone by, it was a tough case battle between the Griffin Survivor All Terrain Case and the Otterbox Defender Case. The Griffin Survivor All Terrain case is not available it has been replaced by the Griffin Survivor Extreme, which is not as tough a case.

This then leaves the Otterbox Defender, which has also evolved, the most significant change is the deletion of the in-built screen protector. The Defender case is now the screen less edition.

The Otterbox Defender is known for their quality. If you require a tough case that can take a serious beating then look no further than the Otterbox Defender. The company has its own Drop Standard and they test their cases so you be assured of quality. 

But from our years of being case retailers, we have seen enough things happen to to iPhone’s when they are in an Defender case to know that they will protect your iPhone.

Defender Case

Otterbox Strada

Otterbox Strada case is a tough, wallet folio case. The newer versions that we have for the new iPhone models use more leather but previous models and we are glad for that. So the Otterbox Strada really has not changed from the previous versions.

The key feature of the Strada is its magnetic latch. This is small and easy to use with just one hand. And unlike other folio cases, the cover magnetically attaches on the back of the case. 

This makes the Otterbox Strada a very likeable option for your iPhone.

Strada Case

Otterbox Symmetry and Otterbox Symmetry Clear

The Otterbox Symmetry was brought back by Otterbox for the iPhone XR, XS, and XS Max models. Otterbox have made these cases thinner by removing the shock-absorbing TPU liner on the back of the case. They have also improved the buttons. 

With this newly revised design, the Otterbox Symmetry has been very popular. The Symmetry Clear is one of the case options to look at if you are thinking about buying Apple’s clear case. The Symmetry has a similar scratch-resistant PC backing and this will show wear and tear more slowly than other cases that are on the market. The high gloss finish may improve the handling and looks of the case for some people.

If you are seeking a thin case you can’t go wrong with an Otterbox Symmetry case.

Symmetry Clear

Otterbox Commuter Series Case

The Commuter case uses Otterbox’s proven combination of a hard outer shell and a shock-absorbing inner layer. 

The Otterbox Commuter Series of cases provide good levels of phone protection from drops and bumps. The case has textured sections on the sides that enhance grip,and port covers to keep dust and debris out of your iPhone. 

Additionally the Commuter Series case has button covers that are easy to press. The screen is easily accessible with this case and there is a raised lip around it to prevent it from touching anything when the phone is placed face down.

Lifeproof Cases

The latest new iPhones have high levels of dust and water resistance and have done so since the iPhone 8 and later. Glass panels are used in their build for looks as well as for wireless charging. The LifeProof brand has four type or styles of cases that further improve the level of protection. These type are as follows: Fre, Next, Slam, Flip.
LifeProof Fre has a front screen protector and also has more seals for extra waterproof protection. The protection is up to two meters for an hour. Flip is the new Flip wallet case option. The new LifeProof Next is the mid range protective case of the LifeProof brand. The LifeProof Slam case will give just drop protection while the Next case has been designed to be dropproof, dirtproof, and snowproof.

You can pick up a LifeProof Fre case from us at the Cleveland Markets on Sundays. This case comes with an integrated front screen protector. More seals are in the case and this leads to improved waterproof protection of up to two meters for an hour. 

If your iPhone goes with you to the pool or to the beach or the pool or if you seem to have half of your outdoor life in the rain you’ll need the want full protection for your iPhone, that the Fre case provides. The additional interior O-ring seals, as well as the front plastic cover bring the dust and water resistance to IP68 with MIL-STD 810G drop protection.

The LifeProof Fre comes in quite a few different colour types: Night Lite (all black with lime green highlights), Drop In (mint, gray, and lime green), Wipeout (couple shades of mint and pink highlights), Chakra (purples and pink), Banzai (blues and lime green), and Fire Run (reds and gray highlights). 

There is a clear window on the back of the Fre case for the Apple logo and wireless charging and Apple Pay work perfectly fine with your iPhone in this case. 

Fre Lifeproof Case

Lifeproof Next

The new LifeProof Next is the mid-level model of the LifeProof brand with the LifeProof Slam focused just on drop protection. The Next is manufactured so that it is be drop proof, dirt proof, and also snowproof (not that we get much snow in the Redland Shire).

The Next case has two pieces that clip tightly together to seal in your iPhone. The case’s back is made of a hard, rigid clear plastic and this extends up to all four sides to hold your phone in place without any ability to move.

The Next case’s front piece is clear plastic and features coloured softer material that fits over the top of your iPhone. Simply place the iPhone into the back piece and then the top part easily clips into place. The coloured material is available different colours to help you customise and stand out: black, gray, mint, as well as pink. There’s small toggle for the ringer switch .

Lifeproof Next has raised buttons for the volume and right side button with a door covering the Lightning charging port. There is no cover on the front of this case if you need protection for the screen, then buy the Fre case you can use a glass screen protector. 

The Next case is a slim protective case proving that you do not need to double the thickness of the iphone to have an outstanding level of protection. 

Lifeproof Next

Lifeproof’s Slam 

LifeProof SLAM is LifeProof’s cheapest case. Slam is slim and is drop-rated to two metres (that’s 6.6ft in the old measurements). Slam is one of the toughest cases and it allows you to show the colour of your iPhone. 

Slamis one of the thinnest cases that weʼve come across for the iPhone and it also has style with the clear back showing off the colour of your Rose Gold iPhone 8 Plus for example. 

Lifeproof Slam

Lifeproof Flip Wallet

The Flip Wallet case from Lifeproof flips around the idea of the wallet case as this heavy-duty case is not a typical wallet style of case. Indeed there there is a wallet flap that flips, but it does not close to cover over the screen as other wallet cases do.  

And if you’re the kind of person who likes slim cases, you’re probably better off with a Casemate Wallet folio case or another type of case as the LifeProof wallet is bulky. Lifeproof are renound for their very protective cases. And this protectiontakes priority over mere looks with LifeProof cases.

 The Flip Wallet case is a new style of case, and it is only currently available for the iPhone 11, the iPhone 11 Pro, as well as the iPone 11 Pro Max. It is available in three colurs: Dark Night (Black/Grey), Cement Surfer (Blue/Slate), Water Lily (Light Blue/Green). 

As stated previously rather having your typical wallet folio style, Lifeproof’s case features a thick back that flips open and closed. 

The case’s fabric flap has slots for card and another longer slot behind them for cash. Don’t want to overstuff this flap, or else it will not hold shut. 

The flap has a large cut out to for the camera module. And you are able to flip the flap all the way around and use it as a kickstand for watching videos. This works well at a variety of angles.
