Reviewers from Nextpit have found the following[***]:
The iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Max are equipped with the same cameras. There are only differences to the regular iPhone 11, which doesn't have an ultrawide-angle camera on the back. Each camera in the Pro models has a resolution of 12 megapixels, including the front camera. Slow motion videos are also possible with all cameras.

Reviewers from Nextpit have found the following[***]:
iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max have grown in all dimensions by a few micrometers compared to their direct predecessors. The back of the new Pro models now features a matt glass finish consisting of the "toughest glass in a smartphone" Apple's adherence to USB 2.0 Lightning is incomprehensible, especially with this iPhone model.

Reviewers from Nextpit have found the following[***]:
The Galaxy Note 10 Plus and the iPhone 11 Pro Max are among the best smartphones you can buy at the moment. Apple prides itself on having created the most powerful smartphone chip with the A13 Bionic. Samsung, on the other hand, can score points with the S-Pen as well as with the option to have the Galaxy Note10 Plus up and running on 5G networks.

Reviewers from Nextpit have found the following[***]:
As always, the iPhone feels really well made, the new camera is great and the software is great too. All new iPhones are based on the A13 Bionic, Apple's new processor. There is a high price to pay for an iPhone 11 Pro, especially if you need more than 64GB of storage. The iPhone is also heavier because the smartphone has a larger battery.

Pros[**]
  • Long battery life
  • Great camera
  • Good camera
  • Great software
Cons[**]
  • High price for an iPhone 11 Pro
  • Camera is not as good as the iPhone X

Sentiment Score[*] 70%
Reviewers from Notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
The iPhone 11 Pro Max is an effective successor to last year's iPhone XS Max. It has a 6.5-inch screen, many pixels, a handsome-sized battery and of course three rear-facing cameras. Apple has equipped the Pro Max with an A13 Bionic SoC, which the company claims is 20% more powerful than the A12 Bionic. The Pro Max comes with a 3,969 mAh battery, which is much larger than the one that was included in the phone.

  • Long-lasting battery
  • Fast SoC
  • Good cameras
Cons[**]
  • Camera performance could be better

notebookcheck[6]

Sentiment Score[*] 71%
Reviewers from Notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
The iPhone 11 Pro has grown a bit in all directions, but the difference between it and the iPhone XS is difficult to see even with the two devices next to each other. Apple has included a USB Type-C to Lightning cable in the box, a move away from the Type-A to Lightning cables it bundled with previous iPhones. The phone supports Bluetooth 5.0 too and has an NFC chip on board, although Apple still restricts the latter to read mode. iOS 13 includes Face ID improvements too, which Apple promises should allow all compatible devices to be unlocked up to 30% faster than in iOS 12.

Pros[**]
  • High-quality OLED display
  • Long battery life
  • IP68-certified against dust and liquids
  • Fast Wi-Fi
  • Long-lasting battery
Cons[**]
  • Slow SoC
  • Mediocre cameras

Sentiment Score[*] 84%
Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
The iPhone Pros are absolutely better than the iPhone 11, as well as the rest of Apple's phones that are still on sale. Like previous iPhones, the Pro models have Lightning rather than USB-C ports, no headphone jacks, and they're waterproof. Apple's new A13 processor is the fastest mobile processor currently available.

Pros[**]
  • Big, dense 4,000mAh battery
  • Long battery life
  • Great camera performance
  • Great speakerphone
Cons[**]
  • Not as powerful as the iPhone 11

Sentiment Score[*] 89%
Reviewers from Whathifi have found the following[***]:
The iPhone 11 Pro is available in standard and ‘Max’ sizes. It comes in Space Grey, gold and silver finishes, plus a new Midnight Green. Under the skin is the new A13 Bionic chip, which Apple claims makes it 'the most powerful iPhone ever' The revolutionary part of the phone is undoubtedly the camera – or, more accurately, the three cameras.

Pros[**]
  • Beautiful new design
  • Superb camera
  • Great battery life
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular
