Is iPhone 11 or it’s Pro range is a waste of cash for many? Last year, Apple’s iPhone X range blew away the world with its ultra smart look and this year the launch of the all new iPhone 11 disappointed many Apple lovers with its quite awful design. But which of these pocket friendly marvels comes out on top and how Apple upgraded the ‘X’ range with the iPhone 11? Here are the iPhone 11 vs iPhone XR differences.
For those who want to get hands-on the iPhone 11, should know that XR and 11 seem identical.
iPhone 11, iPhone XR – 150.9 x 75.7 x 8.3 mm (5.94 x 2.98 x 0.33 in) and 194 g (6.84 oz).
we can determine the weight gain clearly in the iPhone 11 range and from the front, nothing has changed. iPhone 11 has slightly thicker bezels but made of aluminum unlike the range of iPhone Pros. The changes have been made by upgrading IP68 water resistance in iPhone 11, which can breathe in up to 2 meters of water level for good 30 minutes unlike iPhone XR which has IP67. The dual sim slots are the same (nano-sim and internal eSIM).
Displays – Nothing Striking
While Apple created plenty of noise regarding the Super Retina XDR displays for iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max, the iPhone 11 panel has not modified from the iPhone XR:
iPhone 11 vs iPhone XR – 6.1-inch LCD, 19.5:9 aspect ratio, True Tone, 1792 x 828 pixels (326 ppi), 1,400:1 contrast ratio, Dolby Vision / HDR10, 79.0% screen-to-body ratio, 625 nits max brightness.
Whereas the iPhone 11 has a plus over the iPhone XR and that is its Face ID. The notch above has 30% faster face ID which is a thumb up for iPhone 11. it’s additionally higher at recognizing your face at much different angles, probably when the phone is flat on a table.
Camera- An edge of ultra Wide Camera
The good news is there’s a clear benefit:
iPhone 11 / iPhone XR – Primary Camera – 12 MP, f/1.8 aperture, 26mm, 1.4µm pixel size, Optical Image stabilization (OIS), Quad-LED True Tone flash, 4K 60fps video
The cherry on top for the camera part of iPhone 11 is its Ultrawide Camera – 12 MP, f/2.4 aperture, 13mm
Yes, you have heard it right; iPhone 11 has an ultra wide camera which is brilliant in shooting wide angle pictures in both landscape and tight spaces with an edge of brighter flash tone. You won’t get the telephotos like in the iphone Pros which is important to increase the quality of portrait mode shots, so don’t expect big upgrade over the iphone XR.
Powerfully Efficient Performance
Apple’s A Series chipsets continue to dominate Smartphone performance but the A13 looks set to do so in a different way.
iPhone 11 – Apple A13 Bionic chipset: Six-Core CPU, Four-Core GPU, Neural Engine – 8 cores
iPhone XR – Apple A12 ‘Bionic’ chipset: Six-Core CPU, Four-Core GPU, M12 motion co processor
