Apple iPhone 11 Pro Summary

iPhone 11 Pro

iPhone 11 Pro was launched in India on September 20, 2019. Users have the choice to acquire the phone in Midnight Green, Space Grey, Silver, and Gold.

iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max all have the same main, processor, software, main, ultrawide, and front camera.

Users will be hard-pressed to choose between the iPhone 11 and its sibling, the 11 Pro as they are different in weight, price, battery, screen resolution, and size only.

If iPhone 11 is the best value for money, the 11 Pro Max is arguably the best iPhone so far.


While there is no change in the size of iPhone 11 Pro’s screen as users still have to settle for 5.8 inches, the panel has been redesigned to be much brighter with brightness stands at 800 nits with regular content.

You will notice the difference right away when watching any HDR content, which boosts the brightness to 1200 nits, according to Apple. It support for HDR10 video and Dolby Vision is most visible when viewing at full brightness. Now you can see new details in movies all while retaining the deep black on screen.

The support for Dolby Vision and HDR10 has been around since iPhone X was introduced but we are now more advantageous to enjoy this feature than we were two years ago as the library for such content has been growing in the last few years.

With a screen of 6.5 inches, iPhone 11 Pro Max may offer a more enjoyable viewing experience with Super Retina XDR display, but those who want to be able to reach every corner of their phone with one hand might prefer the iPhone 11 Pro.

While this is not the biggest screen you can get, content and games are still immersive on this phone with all of the above supports and brightness.


The A13 Bionic chipset offers the kind of performance Android phones cannot keep up with. Users of iPhone 11 Pro report of faster video editing and exporting with the phone.

There is a slowdown when opening the camera app; however, that is probably the fault of iOS 13 than the performance of the chipset. The Geekbench 5 tests proves that the phone is the fastest around with a score of 3431.


Under the hood, along with the A13 Bionic chip are 64GB of onboard storage and 4GB of RAM, similar to iPhone 11. Overall, everything happens quickly and there are no problems with tasks like playing games or video editing.

However, the 64GB of storage í a little disappointing, especially when you prefer shooting 4K videos. Even without any of such video, apps, games, and movies will soon occupy the whole storage.

You are right to expect at least 6GB of RAM on the phone of this price but unfortunately, what you have is only 4GB. While the iPhone 11 Pro can handle everything, from video editing to gaming, many users may expect more RAM to rest assured that their handset is future-proof.


iPhone 11 Pro’s battery is durable, plenty able to sustain an average user more than a day. With heavy usage, some users might still get a day and a half. If you want even more time from one charge, iOS 13’s low-power mode can extend that time even more.

According to Apple. iPhone 11 Pro’s battery is four hours more durable than that of iPhone XS.

Last year, the iPhone XS Max is the one with longer battery life since its bigger size means Apple is able to squeeze in a larger battery. However, this time, the company has sacrificed the 3D Touch to make way for that power cell, so battery life on iPhone 11 Pro can rival any of its predecessors.   

To sweeten the deal, this phone comes with lightning-to-USB-C cable and 18W charger, which means you can expect half of the battery being filled in half an hour.

On the other hand, 7.5W is what you will have to settle when wirelessly charge the phone. And reverse charging has never made it to the iPhone 11 lineup so we may have to wait for iPhone 12 to see this feature.


On the rear, the camera setup features 2x optical zoom as well as ultra-wide snapper, the first ever on an iPhone. Overall, iPhone 11’s cameras are highly versatile for almost any needs.

What we have with iPhone 11 Pro is the results expected when you use a mirrorless camera with different lenses.

Pictures have better HDR and details which normally went lost in too bright light or too low light. This effect can be found on portrait pictures too with sharper and brighter subjects.

While most Android phones out there are designed to shoot for Instagram with saturated and cooler pics, iPhone 11 Pro still offers warmer and more realistic tones.

With the front camera, you can also expect HDR in effect here. The selfie snapper now packs 12MP, a boost from 7MP, which allows for a slew of details. However, users will have to tone down the too warm tone of the camera sometimes, but that is far from a deal breaker.

After some time of waiting, Apple has finally given us 4K/60fps for the front camera. That is not all. Now you can record slow-motion video with the selfie camera as well, which Apple invented a name for it, called Slofies.

While this isn’t a breakthrough in tech or anything, that name is certainly good for marketing as after Apple made it public, the Internet was filled with memes teasing it.

If you have time for it, playing around with 120fps at 1080p can be very enjoyable. The main camera even offers 240FPS at 1080p.

Frames per second aside, there are two features that can contribute greatly to how good your videos turn out, which are Audio Zoom, which makes the microphone to focus on the subject, creating the feeling that the audio zooms in along with the camera; and cinematic video stabilization to keep everything smooth.
