Had enough time to think yet? Is iPhone 11 really worth an upgrade even though it is not 5G? The highly anticipated phone of year was launched last Tuesday and is yet to hit the retail stores, which means you still have days to think about it.
Apple’s flagship product has already been in the eye of the storm with allegations on its 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max designs. Those with trypophobia have claimed how the three-camera design of the new iPhone has triggered the fear of small clustered holes all over again. The trypohobes will definitely not be the one purchasing iPhone 11 Pro or Pro Max.
VoucherCodesUAE Blog presents to you the top 10 reasons why iPhone 11 is a better option than iPhone Pro or Pro Max.
10 reasons why iPhone 11 is better than 11 Pro and Max
The new iPhone 11 starts at $699, which is cheaper than the launch price of its predecessor, iPhone X. The iPhone 11 variety in Pro and Pro Max costs $999 and $1099 respectively, which means the standard iPhone is $300 cheaper. Besides, the starting storage capacity is 64 GB for all three varieties so paying $300 more for the same storage capacity does not quite make sense right?
A13 Bionic chip
All iPhone 11 models irrespective of the variety has the same brain- A13 Bionic chip. The A11 chip that powered the iPhone X was capable of 600 billion operations per second while the A12 used for XR and XS boasted 5 trillion operations per second. Now, with A13, the device is capable of 8.5 trillion operations per second. So no matter which variety you are getting, the power efficiency will remain the same.
Sure, iPhone Pro and Pro Max have 3 rear cameras and if that is the only reason you are tempted to buy these, here’s a newsflash: it does not make so much of a difference. All models have a 12-megapixel wide-angle lens and 12-megapixel ultra-wide lens but Pro has 12-megapixel telephoto lens for zooming. If you’re planning on intense photography through your Pro phone, then zoom shouldn’t be so much of a priority than to capture the subject in the angle and proximity you want.
Forget the rear camera, both iPhone 11 and 11 Pro has the same 12 megapixel front camera supporting 4K video up to 60 frames per second. The front camera which is needed for Face ID also has the same TrueDepth camera system.
Think iPhone 11 as a bubbly colorful sibling of reserved and lofty 11 Pro. While the iPhone 11 Pro comes in only four basic colors, namely; space grey, gold, silver, and midnight green, the standard iPhone 11 comes in six beautiful colors; green, purple, yellow, black, white and red. The pastel touch of teal green and lavender purple has the world gushing about.
The standard iPhone 11 has a 6.1 inch display, which is neither too small nor too big for a phone. The iPhone 11 Pro has 5.8 inch while Pro Max has 6.5 inch display. The winner here is clearly iPhone 11 which is a perfect size for a phone and even photography.
iPhone users have for long complained about its battery life. XR was a game-changer and now, iPhone 11 is taking that a step forward with an hour’s extra battery life than XR, which means up to 16.5 to 17.5 hours in a single charge. The iPhone 11 Pro with its extra battery power than XS will come up to almost same battery span, but Pro Max will get an added extra hour or two compared to 11 Pro.
Spared of trypophobic triggers
As mentioned earlier, the design of iPhone 11 Pro has not pleased a lot of people. Trypophobia is basically a fear of holes that are placed closely together and iPhone 11 Pro does just that with its three camera lenses placed closely together. It is extremely uncomfortable to look at and if the picture below made you feel uncomfortable, then iPhone Pro is not for you.
A quick research leads to the conclusion that the features in both phones are the same. Both are water and dust resistant and are backed with spatial audio with Dolby Atmos support. Both phones have dual sim support, and photo/video features such as night mode, Deep Fusion, QuickTake, and selfie Slo-Mo are the same.
Liquid Retina Display
iPhone 11 may not have OLED screens of Pro and Pro Max but Liquid Retina Display is almost as good with brilliant color display. In fact, it is the best LCD in any smartphone. The colors are richer and contrasts are deeper.
Lack of 5G upgrade does not make any difference
One of the reasons why potential buyers are in a fix regarding iPhone 11 is the lack of 5G upgrade. The fifth-generation cellular technology is a faster version than the 4G LTE. The absence of 5G upgrade can definitely affect the sales of iPhone 11 as consumers are willing to wait for iPhone 12 next year that features 5G. However, a point to be noted is that having a 5G phone will not be of any use if the infrastructure does not support 5G. Most U.S carriers don’t have 5G networks built yet, and the world will take time to catch up.
