  • Great battery life
  • Night Mode for taking photos in dimly lit situations
  • Long-lasting battery
Cons**
  • Nothing in particular

Summary

The iPhone 11 is all the iPhone you need, even with the new iPhone 12 arriving. I've come to favor the smaller iPhone 11 Pro, like the iPhone XS last year. Despite not having “Pro” in its name, you get the same performance on the iPhone 11.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

Sentiment Score[*] 100%
Reviewers from cnet have found the following[***]:
The iPhone 11 comes with a new ultrawide-angle camera, Night Mode for low-light photography. The camera arms race is something that hard-core photographers study closely, but I'd argue it's gone way past what most people need. I've come to favor the smaller iPhone 11 Pro, like the iPhone XS last year.

Sentiment Score[*] 86%
Reviewers from digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
Apple claims the iPhone 11 lasts an hour more than the iPhone XR, which already had great battery life. On a heavy day of use, the 3,110mAh battery hit 15% by 5 p.m. The iPhone 11's battery will easily last all day in most situations. Apple doesn't include the 18W fast charger in the box.

Reviewers from nextpit have found the following[***]:
Despite the age of the iPhone 11, its performance does not leave anything to be desired. The same Apple A13 SoC is shared not only by the iPhone SE 2020 but also by the iPad 2021. Even with the arrival of iOS 15, iPhone 11 is compatible with the new features announced by Apple for the camera.

Sentiment Score[*] 91%
Reviewers from nextpit have found the following[***]:
With the iPhone 11, it is also finally possible to take 120-degree wide-angle photos. The blur that is done optically and not by software offers pretty images. Apple's software is certainly powerful, and it has the advantage of not making itself felt to maintain good processing. The iPhone 11 offers a unique front camera that does not disappoint.

Pros[**]
  • Excellent photo quality
  • Good battery life
  • Good cameras
Cons[**]
  • Slow charging
  • No wireless charging

Sentiment Score[*] 81%
Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
The iPhone 11 delivers even better values ​​than its Pro siblings with True Tone disabled. We do find the warmer look that True Tone gives the display more pleasant in daily use. The iPhone 11 is easy to use outdoors because of its bright display. The device has a fast touchscreen and decent-sounding speakers as well. The included headphones are solid companions at best, but they will not blow anyone away.

Pros[**]
  • Bright display
  • Fast Wi-Fi
  • Decent battery life
  • Fast charging
Cons[**]
  • No wireless charging
  • No aptX codec support

pcmag[6]

Sentiment Score[*] 86%
Reviewers from pcmag have found the following[***]:
The iPhone 11 offers solid camera performance and power for a relatively reasonable price. Apple's Night mode combines a whole bunch of frames to make dramatic improvements in low-light performance. We are least impressed with the Pro and Pro Max's third camera, a 2x zoom. If you're in the market for a new phone, should you buy the iPhone 11?

Pros[**]
  • Bigger, better camera than last year's model
  • Excellent battery life
  • Dual SIM with eSIM
Cons[**]
  • No headphone jack
  • No wireless charging

tomsguide[7]

Sentiment Score[*] 88%
Reviewers from tomsguide have found the following[***]:
The iPhone 11's battery lasted an average of 11 hours and 16 minutes. The iPhone 11 supports 4G LTE, which offers decent performance but not the same speeds as the iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max. You get a bright and colorful screen, good performance, excellent image quality and excellent battery life.

  • Bright, colorful OLED display
  • Good battery life
  • Long-lasting battery
Cons[**]
  • No fast charger in the box
  • No wireless charging
