Apple iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max review

  • What does it mean for a phone to earn the name "Pro"? Lots of power, for one. Usually great cameras. And software robust enough to handle arduous tasks with ease. The new iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max certainly tick all these boxes, and — as you might expect — they're the best iPhones Apple has ever made. The thing is, I say that every year and it's true each time, but it doesn't really sum up how I feel about the new iPhone Pros after having tested them for a while.

    These are both excellent devices, and represent Apple at the peak of its smartphone game. But are they dramatically better than the premium phones the company gave us last year? Well, yes and no. There are plenty of additions and improvements here, but when it comes to day-to-day use, their impact on the overall iPhone experience can seem muted. Ultimately, I have my own theory about why these phones get the "Pro" moniker: Because some of the changes here are so subtle that it would take a pro to notice them, much less appreciate them.

                    If I had a pound for every review that claimed “battery life is much improved” I’d be a billionaire and I’m not. Battery life on every apple product is appalling. It never improves. I’ve got 4 iPads purchased on “battery life is much improved” Total lies. It’s hopeless on all of them.

                        11 pro max is nice but i dont know how i feel about the camera because as they switch the megapixels higher it knda looks like android which I dont like and it doesnt even feel like an iphones camera anymore honestly...but the the overall features of the phone is amazing except with the camera coz it does look like an android..and honestly Iphone XS max cam seems better how I wish it had the 11pros 3 camera's functions.. It'll be so perfect.

                                                                I upgraded from the xr to iPhone 11 pro. The only benefit I found is the stainless steel frame over the aluminum making it structurally stronger. (I bent my xr). If you have a recent iPhone and aren’t into cameras, don’t bother upgrading. Though the screen does look better and it seems to function better than at least the xr screen when it comes to typing on it. So my review is this. it’s better on the outside all the way around. Looks and feels better....At the same time the a13 chip hasn’t wowed me all that much because The a12 chip was fast too. 🤷‍♂️.

                                                                                    I got the max version, pretty happy with it but still disappointed with no 4K support for youtube

                                                                                    • Gosht
