  • Great battery life
  • Night Mode for taking photos in dimly lit situations
  • Long-lasting battery
  • 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.

Rundown

Sentiment Score[*] 69%
Reviewers from Cnet have found the following[***]:
The iPhone 11 and 11 Pro are 85% the exact same phone. The $699 iPhone 11 model gets 64GB of storage, which is probably fine for many people. The Pro phones add a 512GB tier that you won't need unless you're shooting in 4K for a living. Compared to the Galaxy S20, the iPhone 11 is an absolute steal.

nextpit[3]

Sentiment Score[*] 81%
Reviewers from Nextpit have found the following[***]:
The iPhone 11 is the successor to the iPhone XR. Its dual camera is probably the most striking feature, and Apple has integrated two sensors into a square photo module in the upper corner of the phone. The iPhone 11 has almost nothing to envy to its older brothers and seems well equipped to last several years.

  • Excellent software optimization
  • Fast charging
Cons[**]
  • Only one year of warranty

Sentiment Score[*] 80%
Reviewers from Nextpit have found the following[***]:
The iPhone 11 is the most affordable new iPhone of this 2019 generation. Unlike the Pro and Pro Max versions, the iPhone 11 does not have a telephoto lens. The smartphone, therefore, offers two cameras and a flash. The selfies are assigned to a single camera located in the notch of the front screen.

Pros[**]
  • High-quality photos
  • Good battery life
  • Long-lasting battery
  • Good cameras
Cons[**]
  • Not as good as the iPhone 11 Pro

notebookcheck[5]

Sentiment Score[*] 65%
Reviewers from Notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
The Apple iPhone 11 is this year's cheapest iPhone, with it effectively succeeding the iPhone XR. Apple has equipped the iPhone 11 with an A13 Bionic SoC and 4 GB of RAM just like it has with its more expensive siblings. 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[**]
  • Fast SoC
  • Long battery life
  • Fast Wi-Fi 6
  • Long-lasting battery
Cons[**]
  • Poor call quality
  • Mediocre speaker

pcmag[6]

Sentiment Score[*] 86%
Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
The iPhone 11 blows older models like the iPhone 6 away, though newer than that. The biggest difference is that the iPhone 11 has more cameras. The iPhone 11 is a sleek, slightly slippery, glass-backed phone. The phone is gorgeous, but the glass back looks eminently breakable.

Pros[**]
  • Super-bright screen
  • Fast A13 processor
  • Bright, colorful display
  • Long battery life
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

phonearena[7]

Sentiment Score[*] 88%
Reviewers from Phonearena have found the following[***]:
If you're coming from an iPhone XR, you will feel right at home. I really dig the new, more subtle pastel paint jobs, especially the purple and green ones. The camera bump on the rear is very similar to the ones on the and Pro Max in terms of size and shape.

Pros[**]
  • Better performance than last year's iPhone XR
  • Improved dual-camera setup
  • Great battery life
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular
