Successor to the iPhone XR, the iPhone 11 differs from its predecessor by the use of a dual camera module. There is an ultra-wide angle on the back of the camera in addition to the main lens, each of which is associated with a 12 megapixel sensor. The iPhone 11 is also equipped with the new Apple A13 Bionic processor and uses an improved Face ID sensor. It is proposed in several original colors.
iPhone 11 : Design
Over the iterations of iPhone, Apple has erected the design foundation of the high-end aura of these smartphones. Like the iPhone 5c before him, but with much more control, the iPhone XR and now the iPhone 11 have a little desecrated design by coloring it, making it less solemn.
Available in six colors (purple, green, yellow, white black and red – Product RED), the iPhone 11 retains the same design as the iPhone XR last year, with an aluminum bend with rounded edges and a glossy glass back, for wireless charging and fingerprinting, it seems. The quality of the finish is worthy of a high-end product, very good performance and should be at least as durable as that of the XR which has not really been marked by our year of use.
Let’s talk quickly about the screen. Its diagonal is unchanged, as is the technology used. The iPhone 11 is not entitled to an OLED panel, but retains a LCD panel quite incredible, incorporating the technologies P3 (wide gamut of colors) and TrueTone, Apple. Although it is a little less bright (651 cd / m2 against 710) and contrasted (1549: 1 against 1732: 1) than that which fitted our iPhone XR. This does not prevent it from being very readable in the sun and being very pleasant to use to read mails, surf or watch movies or photos. But the panel of the iPhone 11 takes a new course in quality of color rendering. Thus, its measured Delta E 2000 is 0.9. As a reminder, the smaller the number, the more faithful to the real colors is close to perfection. The iPhone 11 sets a record previously held in the family by the iPhone 8 Plus and Delta E 0.92.
A nice way to prove that an LCD panel can have some advantages in his sleeve.
iPhone 11: Autonomy
As incredible as it may seem, the iPhone 2019 blithely dominate the best high-end Android smartphones in versatile autonomy.
The SoC “A13 Bionic”, embedded in the iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, is a power monster, as we have already had the opportunity to tell you. But it is also extremely energy efficient. This chip is given by its designers to be about 30% more energy efficient than its predecessor, the A12.
That’s why Apple announced, confident, on the scene of Steve Jobs Theater that its three iPhone gained largely autonomy this year. The iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max were given to win respectively one hour, four hours and five hours of autonomy compared to their direct seniors, the iPhone XR, XS and XS Max.
iPhone 11: Camera
With its dual rear-facing camera (wide-angle and ultra wide-angle), night mode and 12-megapixel front camera, the iPhone 11 has more advantages for photos and videos.
iPhone 11 takes much sharper photos with finer details. This is especially noticeable when viewing snapshots at full resolution. It is also more effective for night shots. Its flash is brighter and the second wide-angle lens is convenient for capturing more elements of a scene. In terms of video, the dynamic range of the iPhone 11 is slightly higher, so the lighting and exposure appear more uniform and natural. Video stabilization is a little more efficient on the standard 12 megapixel camera. On the other hand, during video recording in 4K, you can only switch from one camera to another when shooting in 30 frames / s (although both cameras can record 60 frames / s).
iPhone 11: Robustness
We put the iphone 11 through a crash test. Turns out, it is very robust. We dropped the iPhone 11 on the front and back on smooth concrete 1 meter, 1.80 meters and 2.50 meters. The rear window and the phone screen did not break. There was a small cosmetic scratch above the camera lens after the 2.5 meter drop, but it worked perfectly.
the iPhone 11 is waterproof and has a high protection rating ‘IP68’ and can hold up to 2 meters for 30 minutes.
iPhone 11: New technologies
The latest Apple smartphone has a U1 chip and connectivity Wi-Fi 6 and Gigabit LTE. These features will be present in future iPhone and Android mobiles, so if you want to have a phone in the ring for the next few years, the iPhone 11 is the best choice.
The new U1 chip helps the iPhone 11 to find other iPhone more precisely when they are nearby. It also improves AirDrop to share files faster. Many believe that the U1 chip is laying the groundwork for an Apple tracker.
The iPhone 11 is compatible Wi-Fi 6, but this technology has just been certified and the available equipment is still few and expensive. It also incorporates Gigabit LTE technology that can achieve top speeds of 1 gigabit / s. You will rarely get such a speed in practice, but your overall speed will be higher.
Finally, the iPhone 11 is available in 256 GB, which is interesting for those who take a lot of photos and videos and do not use the cloud.
