iPhone 11 Pro: review of the once-iconic flagship

No matter how hard the Cupertino people try to stick to their own line and be trendsetters in the

smartphone industry, they did not succeed, and Apple had to follow global trends.That's why we saw a three-camera unit on the back of the new flagship 11 Pro.Of course, the company tried to stand out somehow, and did not come up with anything better than to slap a completely ridiculous blank on the body, similar to a three-burner stove.

In general, 11 Pro can be called standardflagship, of which quite a lot are already on the market. This is a 5.8-inch display with an OLED matrix, the latest proprietary processor, three main camera modules and a capacious battery. Nevertheless, the smartphone went to the public, and is being sold quite actively, but what’s so interested in consumers in it, we’ll take a look now.


The front panel has not changed much inCompared with the previous generation, the cut-out has not disappeared, it has a front camera, a speaker and a microphone, the upper face is clean. The lower edge contains a speaker, a pair of microphones and a Lightning port. The side faces do not show anything new, everything is like ordinary smartphones, there are control buttons and a SIM card receiver.

The main changes to the exterior are the back panel,it was here that something with three lenses appeared. The block looks completely alien on the smartphone case, fits neither in the general image, and even sticks out like on a soap camera. As for the case materials, this, in principle, does not matter. Frosted glass there or glossy, all 100 percent of users immediately wrap the device in a case, and if we talk about the material of the smartphone, we should indicate the material of the case. The color scheme can also practically be any, depending on the case, the front panel is the same for everyone, and for all smartphones there is a screen.

Just in time, Apple released a collection of classic, minimalistic cases. They sit clearly, durable, quite pleasant to the touch, never removed. So why in the smartphone glass?


It's the quality of the display that really matters,because this is where users end up. And the screen is really good, the resolution of the OLED matrix is ​​2436x1125, the brightness reserve is 1200 nits, and the contrast has also increased. In general, the screen will look great and display all the colorful information even in direct sunlight. Color rendition is almost natural, a little too much with saturation, as with all organic LEDs. This time 3D Touch was not delivered. Since there is no need for it, few people use a stylus on a smartphone, and for professional purposes, that is, drawing.


The processor here is the A13 Bionic, combiningsix cores and created by the 7-nanometer process technology. The processor power, judging by tests on benchmarks and real applications, is approximately at the level of average mobile processors from Intel, that is, the performance of 11 Pro, in fact, is not lower than that of mid-range notebooks. In addition, this chipset has raised the bar for energy efficiency to a new level. As for autonomy, it increased by 4 hours compared to the previous generation. A full charge takes 105 minutes with a battery capacity of 3200 mAh. It is worth noting that some thought it was not enough 64 gigabytes for the drive of such a smartphone, only few can convincingly explain what these gigabytes are for. There is always cloud storage for photos and videos, for applications there is more than enough space if you are not a maniac installing thousands of unnecessary applications to be just like that.

The sound of Cupertin's smartphones is traditionallygorgeous, high-quality speakers, volumetric effect is pronounced quite clearly. It’s clear that this is a smartphone, and it’s better to listen to music on headphones, but situational video viewing is quite delivering. Housing with IP68 protection, which allows you to immerse the device at a four-meter depth in water for half an hour without consequences.

Photo opportunities

Everything is clear with the sensors on the camera, here you areDo not hear about many tens or even hundreds of megapixels, let Chinese manufacturers boast of this. Everything seems to be standard, each module has 12 megapixels, two modules with optical stabilization are added, the camera software makes excellent use of the focal difference, turning it into a decent zoom, the total hybrid zoom is x10. In general, the camera for a smartphone is excellent, but no more. Many begin to talk about expanding creative opportunities, that wide-angle optics have added convenience to professionals. But people, wake up, what kind of creativity, which professionals with phones instead of specialized professional equipment? The cameras on the smartphone are only for social networks, you can not position them as a tool for creativity and, especially, creative work.

The front camera received a 12 megapixel sensor, a stabilization lift, supports FaceID, which now works much more reliable and faster

What is the result

In general, the new smartphone from the Cupertin teamthe expectations of most users met. This is truly the most powerful smartphone with a great screen and a great camera. Yes, there are no innovations in it, alas, but so far no one has them, the world is on the verge of global changes. As soon as 5G is deployed everywhere, manufacturers will surely show us something.
