iPhone 11 and 11 Pro review: Apple’s best ever camera
Are Apple’s iPhone 11 and 11 Pro the best iPhones yet? Well… of course they are.
The new phones, which went on sale last week, are faster, have better cameras and longer-lasting batteries than any previous iPhone.
But that isn’t the question you should ask yourself about a new iPhone. The modern smartphone has been all-but perfected, at least until folding phones become reliable or we achieve some battery breakthrough. The age in which the new iPhone changed everything has been over for some time.
The real thing to consider when asking if you should pull the trigger on the 11 or 11 Pro is simple: is it worth it? And that depends less on what’s in the new phone as which device is currently in your pocket, how you use it, and how much you care about having the latest and greatest device. So if that’s the question you want to answer, read on.
For the purposes of this review, I’m largely comparing the new iPhones with previous generations, not Android rivals. That isn’t because there’s a shortage of great Android alternatives out there, (we have a camera shootout against Samsung’s S10 here) but most iPhone buyers nowadays are upgrading from older models, not switching from Android. In that sense, the greatest competition the new iPhones have is with their ancestors.
