The iPhone 11, according to the first reviews, was called one of the most sought-after new iPhones of 2019 for its low price and
IPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max reviews
I can immediately say that the general opinion about these twonew items next. The phones are fairly familiar and relatively repetitive updates in general, but with significant improvements in terms of cameras and battery life.
Battery and Runtime
Apple claims iPhone battery lifeThe 11 Pro is four hours longer than the iPhone XS, and that the larger iPhone 11 Pro Max works five hours longer than the iPhone XS Max, and reviews confirm these numbers.
Engadget's Chris Velasco says the iPhone 11 Pro has been running on a charge for almost 12 hours, compared to 9-9.5 hours with the iPhone XS:
When I tested the brand new XS in the pastyear, he worked from 9 to 9.5 hours without recharging in the days of heavy use. This year, the iPhone 11 Pro worked with the same general loads and worked for about 12 hours before it needed to be recharged. At the same time, the larger Pro Max lasted 13 to 14 hours without recharging compared to 11-12 hours that I squeezed out of the iPhone XS Max.
Nilai Patel of The Verge says his iPhone 11 Pro Max has 12-14 hours of continuous use compared to 8-10 hours with the iPhone XS Max:
So the best I can tell you isthe fact that Apple historically coped well with its battery life requirements, and the iPhone 11 Pro Max, which I used every day for a week, worked continuously from 12 to 14 hours without recharging, with more than 10 hours of screen turn-on time, specified in the battery settings for a 24-hour period. For my iPhone XS Max, this is no more than 8-10 hours of battery life, which is a noticeable improvement.
Camera and night mode
IPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max modelsuse the same rear camera system with three lenses and a new ultra-wide angle sensor to complement existing wide-angle and telephoto lenses on last year’s premium models.
Patel believes that the iPhone 11 Pro models have the “best camera for smartphones on the market”:
It seems like Apple has taken all this criticism closelyto heart, because the iPhone 11 Pro cameras are a huge improvement over the XS, and they outperform the Pixel and Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus in most of our parallel comparisons. In fact, I think the iPhone 11 Pro is the best camera for smartphones on the market.
Raymond Wong from Mashable believes the newthe night mode for the iPhone 11 in low light, which turns on automatically when necessary, is at the same time better and more convenient than the similar night mode on the latest Google Pixel smartphones:
Of course, Google first did night mode, butThis feature is more intuitive on the iPhone 11 Pro. On the Pixel, the rotating exposure ring locks the entire viewfinder until you move, but on the iPhone 11 Pro in real time, you can see that the exposure gets brighter when the timer starts the countdown.
And the night mode of the iPhone 11 Pro is also, in my opinionopinion, gives better photos - clearer details, as well as better tones and contrast, to maintain the mood of the scene. The night mode on other phones makes the scene brighter or more artificial; the night mode of the iPhone 11 Pro subtly balances the light and dark areas in the foreground and background.
Here's a parallel comparison of Night Mode on the iPhone 11 Pro and Night Sight on Google Pixel 3 from The Verge:

TechCrunch's Matthew Panzarino says the new Midnight Green iPhone 11 Pro color actually looks more like a dark gray under most lighting conditions:
Green is almost not like any of the photos,which I saw on the Apple website. Deep Green reads as dark gray in everything except the most direct indoor lighting. In the open air, the treated stainless strip has a “80s Mall Green” shade, which I really like. Overall, however, this is a very muted color.
Panzarino adds that the new frosted glass case makes the iPhone 11 Pro models more attractive than the glossy-coated iPhone XS models.
According to Lauren Hood of Wired, all three iPhone 11 models have, according to Apple, the most durable glass on any iPhone:
All three new iPhones have, according to Apple,The toughest glass on any iPhone. However, the back of the Pro phones has a textured and less slippery matte surface, and I prefer it. Pro phones are also available in colors that are more restrained than the iPhone 11 line, contributing to a more serious Pro style.
