Apple iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max review

  • Published: 17 September 2019
  • 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.

                          What the heck, the loss of 3D Touch is my biggest problem with this phone. I was so upset to find this out. Others around me agree to. I use that sooooo much when I’m texting and nightlong a word or multiple words. Ugh

                                          Very nice review. You really addressed almost everything I am concerned about. Except for one thing: Is the absence of a 5G radio meaningful in deciding whether or not to invest in this now?

                                                        the phones never innovate anything and are the worst quality price while samsung and the others if they innovate and people spending a lot of money while with little money they get better than those overvalued phones and it's not that I'm an android fanboy I just tell the truth

                                                          all iphone reviews, Lookz at the camerazzz. Like isn't there something else worth talking about? I'm genuinely interested in more than basic specs I can read anywhere and the new camera. Like, I'm not self absorbed, I care more other shit than pictures of myself and what i'm doing.

                                                              Regarding the extra battery fact the lack of the 3d touch gave apple some extra room for a bigger battery. So don’t give all the credit to the a13 bionic processor.

It will have a slightly faster processor and 4d touch. It will also include a new feature called “bio recognition”. You will have to pee on the phone to unlock it. Of course it will have IpeeX8 rating.

I switched to Android after that and am beyond satisfied being back on iPhone. The camera is incredible, the speed, battery life, no glitching, etc and just how fluid it is. I love this phone. I’m back to Apple for good.
