Apple iPhone 11 Review: the best iPhone for most people

  • Published on Sep 18, 2019
  • Thanks to some under-the-hood improvements, a new camera and its $699 starting price, you're getting more of what matters for slightly less. In absolute terms the 11 might not be the "best" iPhone, but it's still the better choice for almost everyone.

    I love the green colour and actually prefer the aluminium frame! Nicer look/touch. Stainless steel isn't necessary and is heavy..

    The display on the iPhone 11 (and the Xr) is absolutely fine. You have to see it in person to know it.

    I don’t know if I should wait for a year or not, I have a iPhone 6s, I’ve had it for years now. It still works but it’s falling apart and the battery dies so fast. I don’t know if I should upgrade to the 11 I mean the price is great! And I feel like the iPhone 12 is going to be more expensive.

    I literally traded my XS for this green iPhone 11 and I’m really loving it. The battery and camera are what really sold me. Don’t mind the lcd over oled. But that camera is just 🤯🤯

    I have a macbook pro and a 4k TV. Literally no use scenario where i'd ever need an OLED Panel on my phone lol. Easy choice, grabbing an 11 and upgrading from my 8 plus.

  • SimpleSencilla
    SimpleSencilla 17 days ago

    Nevermind, I wanted to upgrade from the iPhone XR, but that dreaded line at the bottom put me off big time (I really was hoping they had a workaround or something). That is the worst thing in Apple design, period. It's extremely annoying to keep closing apps accidentally or messing up my games when I'm freaking fighting a boss precisely (I was really angry when I somehow touched the line as I was trying to kill the Twins in Terraria) it was very irritating. It is even more irritating when my granddaughter was grabbing make-up for her Barbie doll (you have to drag the makeup up from the bottom of the screen!) and she closed the app a good twenty times before I lost my patience and moved her to my iPad Air. Thank God for that HOME BUTTON!!


    Is it worth upgrading from iPhone 5s to iPhone 11 or wait till iPhone 12?

    The main reason I would even switch is bc of the colors. I really like the purple one.

      Nikki Freeman I did the same. I switched from X to the Xr because of product red. This time I switched from the Xr product red to the purple iPhone 11. My Xr was great I just wanted that pretty purple

    Not going to lie, I’m not happy with my iPhone 11. I got it the day it came out and the battery dies before the end of the day. The front camera is not very good, and Snapchat videos are choppy. Any suggestions?
