When we talk about the tog game, the maestro of all, we take the name of Apple with respect. As we speak, the Apple iPhones are the most recognized smartphone in the world. The vision of the late Steve Jobs was to shrink all the entertainment and work factors into a small and pocket sized form factor. So he, along with his fierce team has introduced Apple iPhone. This is a small and portable device with a smart touch screen, which is basically a phone, with a whole new purpose and exciting features.
The world was at shocked to see such a major breakthrough in the phone industry as the sales went sky rockets when the iPhone hit the stores. Fast forwarding from then, Apple has been continuing the legacy with some of the most ground breaking and fascinating technologies which can change the course of the lives.
After the big hit with the notch in iPhone 10 and its predecessors, Apple is all set to launch their new brain child, the all new iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro. This rage of smartphone is said to be the best in the business in all sectors, period.
iPhone 11 Pro is the bigger and better version of iPhone 11 Pro. Perhaps the most key differentiating factor is the triple camera setup of the iPhone 11 Pro. The iPhone 11, on the other hand has a dual camera setup.
We will be reviewing the iPhone 11 Pro in today’s article. It have got the review unit shipped by Apple Inc. a couple of days back. We have been using it since then and pushing the phone to its limit. It will talk about it in details later in this article.
Apple iPhone 11 Pro Review: The Show Stopper!
Perhaps the biggest improvement form the last version of iPhone which is of course the iPhone 10 series, are seen in four categories. The categories are:
- The Built quality
- The Battery life
Apple has been focusing the big improvement in the cameras in all their advertisements and even in the global launch event. After seeing the advertisements and the sample images, I do have to admit that this is the major improvement so far. But easy there guys! It would be really stupid if I express my initial impressions this early. There are certain aspects which are needed to be examined before giving a review of a certain phone. This aspects will give us a proper understanding about the phone’s capability. The aspects are:
- Sensors and Other Features
- Water Resistance
So without wasting any time, let us move into the review real quick.
The Design of Apple iPhone 11 Pro: The Best of Apple!
This is no doubt the biggest changes that Apple made so far as far as the design is concerned. There were some of the leaked images or render files of the phone on the internet. When I saw the leaked images of the design for the first time, I was not giving that any sort of importance. I along with maximum of the influencers thought that it would be a joke! But who knew that Apple was seriously building phone with big and weird circular cameras in a cutout box!
At first, I did not liked the basic form factor. But after a little while I got used to it and it was okay form that period of time. This might be different in your case. I just expressed my personal opinion. So, as we are talking about the unusual camera bump, let us talk about it first.
The Apple iPhone 11 Pro comes with a triple camera setup. It is installed in a very unique way with an elevated bump. The back and the front is made out of glass. Apple has done some serious engineering to curve the glass according to camera bump. The frame is made out of stainless steel. As the front and the back is made out of a combination of glass and stainless steel, the phone is a bit heavier than usual. As it is weighted around 188 gram. It is approximately 20 odd grams heavier than the iPhone 10 R. Having said that, this extra weight will get smoothen up once you start using it on a daily basis.
The dimension of the phone is 5.67 inches in length, 2.81 inches in the width and 0.32 inches in breadth. The phone is a big phone, I admit. But it is the best of Apple so far!
As we move on to the attributes, the power button and the SIM tray are on the right side of the frame. The volume adjustment rocker and the one switch vibration button is on the left side. The top side is free of any port where else the bottom part has the stereo speaker grills and the lightning connector.
This is pretty much it. Otherwise the rest are as identical as the previous version of iPhone. Now let us move on to the screen real as iPhone is best for the screens.
