iPhone 11 – Full Review

iPhone 11 – Full Review

hi everyone Aaron here for ZolloTech and
the iPhone 11 has been out for a couple of weeks and so far it’s a pretty good
phone but I wanted to help you decide whether or not you should pick one up
and so if you want to jump to a specific part of this review I’ve listed all the
time codes in the description so you can just jump around or whatever you’d like
to see now the first thing overall that’s great about it is its build
quality it’s still the same as basically a 10 R for example it’s aluminum around
the outside edge and then you’ve got glass front and back and Apple has
increased the build quality and increase the strength of the glass it seems I
don’t have any sharp edges around the outside it just feels good overall and I
think they’ve improved it a little bit now the difference between this and the
XR is the back glass they’ve moved the
Apple logo 4-1 they’ve moved it to the center and I think that was supposed to
be for reverse wireless charging for the air pods for example because people that
have torn the phone apart say all the hardware is there they just didn’t turn
it on so maybe we’ll see it later not really sure but the Apple is in the
middle maybe to represent that we don’t really know since Apple didn’t do this
however the back glass is really nice it’s interesting because you’ve got a
camera bump here but it’s all one piece of glass so it’s shiny here with a matte
finish on the camera area it’s reverse of the iPhone 11 pro and pro Mac so
there’s is matte on the back and glossy around the camera bump
it’s just a small differentiating factor now overall the feel of it is good it’s
the same 6.1 inch display that we had on the iPhone 10 R and some people may not
like this but it’s the same resolution however it’s the same pixel density of
326 pixels per inch and that means you can’t really see the pixels in fact
that’s higher than you get with an iPad pro for example so despite the
resolution being under 1080p you can still watch 1080p YouTube videos it just
scales accordingly to the screen size if I was to put this side-by-side with an
iPhone 10s max which I have done many times or an 11 pro max most people can’t
tell the difference with the exception of the brightness of it and the very
dark blacks on the screen so when the screen is actually dark or black in an
area it’s pixels on the pro devices whereas on
this this screen it’s not doing that so I think for most people most people
didn’t complain about the 10r unless you’re into specs and technology and
things like that but overall you can’t see the pixels it looks good it’s not as
bright as an OLED display that you get on the pro devices but you get one major
advantage with this over the pro and that is it doesn’t have PWM or pulse
width modulation and that’s the way an OLED display on the pro devices actually
manages the brightness so it has to flicker the display faster and faster to
manage brightness and an LCD like the 10r does not have that so if you feel
nauseous or nauseated by looking at one of those displays on an iPhone 10 10 s
10 s max 11 Pro or 11 Pro max you’re not going to experience that here because
this is more similar to an iPhone 8 or a plus for example so I think that might
be really good for a lot of people now one in 10 people have issues with PWM or
flicker and I’m one of them and I have zero issues with this phone so that part
I really appreciate now the next thing is the speed of this phone the speed is
really good in fact it’s got the same processor as the pro devices so you’re
not really compromising there it’s super fast it’s fluid all of the time I’ve had
no slowdowns whatsoever and opening apps and scrolling anything you’re doing just
feels fast and fluid I’ve had no issues running the public releases of iOS so if
you’re on one of the betas maybe you’ll have some issues but running the public
versions I’ve had none whatsoever and that leads me over to the cameras this
year’s cameras are greatly improved over last years and in fact we have two of
the same cameras we get on the pro we have a wide and an ultra wide and we
lose the telephoto but you can zoom in and it’s still pretty clear overall and
I’ll show you some of those photos in just a moment but they’re new 12
megapixel sensors that are capable of not only great photo and video but also
really low-light photography so I’ve put all of that together in a separate part
part of this video so you can take a look at it here recording video with the regular 1x
camera and it is stabilized just like on the 11pro and Promax so
it’s actually really nice stable footage as I walk along here if I switch to the
ultra wide it’s not stabilized but it’s pretty stable because it’s so wide so
let me show you what I mean now I’m using the ultra wide camera and while
this is not stabilized because it’s so wide it gives it more of a stabilized
look but if you wanted to walk along with the camera I would use the 1x since
it’s stabilized optically now with the camera we have a couple new options we
have this arrow and this only appears on the 11 and the 11 Pro devices we hit the
little arrow and we’ve got some options here on the right and so we can switch
between 4:3 or 16:9 this is great for maybe taking a thumbnail for YouTube
that’s what I use it for it go back to 4:3 and then you can see we have flash
or night mode in night mode is only going to show up if you’re in an
environment where it could be used properly so you can hit this you’ll see
it on the left next to your flash and then you can adjust the actual exposure
time and if it’s on a tripod the iPhone actually senses that and will allow you
to adjust it accordingly now right now it’s only giving giving us one second
but we’ll change that in a moment but you can back out to a wide-angle camera
you’ll see we can go wide here and you’ll see even part of the tripod
that this phone is on or we can go back to 1x we can zoom digitally but it’s not
as good as if we have the optical zoom on the pro let me show you what this can
do though when it’s in night mode now the only light in the room is from a
couple LEDs and the screens of the iPhone that I’m recording so let’s go
ahead and go to night mode here and we can turn the exposure time up to 30
seconds there’s a max of 28 to 30 seconds we’ll hit the button and we’ll
take the photo and you’ll watch it slowly expose it’s pretty interesting to
watch this and you’ll see it’s got 17 seconds left it’s going to expose the
image overall now when it’s this dark you can’t really focus on anything but
this gives you an idea of what it can do and it’s really impressive as far as
being able to gather light because those boxes of the iPhone that were in the
background I can’t even see them now in this current light so let’s go ahead and
wait for it to finish we’ll tap on the photo and there you can see it even was
able to make out the name iPhone you can barely read it but you can see the box
of the iPhone 11 Pro in the background and make out some of what was going on
so it’s pretty impressive it’s better at night with maybe a starry sky or
something like that I’m recording handheld using the forward-facing camera
on the iPhone 11 and I’m actually using the internal mic as well and this is the
same great camera that’s in the 11pro and Promax
you’ve got slow-motion selfies just like you would on those devices and there’s
really no compromise on the forward facing camera whatsoever in fact I
recorded the entire 11 Pro and 11 Pro max review video using the forward
facing camera anytime I’m on video so you’ve got the same quality you get
there and depending on the sunlight it may be even better that’s not quite as
bright like today the other thing you can do now that you have two cameras is
you can take portraits of objects where you couldn’t do that before with the 10r
you can do that now with this camera because it’s got to to sense depth so
now you can take portraits of anything from flowers to people to animals
whatever you want it’s not just limited to mostly people now the next thing is
battery and apple says battery in the iPhone 11 is about an hour longer than
you get with the 10 R however I find that most people are saying about 30
minutes or 30 to 60 not 60 and over so expect this to get you through the day
probably seven to eight hours of battery life with screen on time and it really
shouldn’t be a problem for most people you still get fast wireless charging but
you don’t get a fast charger in the box you’ve still got the five watt charger
now you can pick up the charger which is the same one from the iPad pro or you
can pick it up in the store for the iPhone as an additional cost but it just
is kind of disappointing they didn’t include it since you get all the same
features that you get with the 11pro and Promax as far as fast charging so if you
want one of those charges you’ll have to buy it extra now reception has actually
been quite good last year we had a bunch of issues with the iPhone 10 R 10s and
max but I think they fixed most of most of those this year and that’s due to
this aluminum design maybe I’m not really sure but it seems to be better
overall just in general I have stronger signal strength I have less drops I also
have no issues on Wi-Fi and we also get Wi-Fi 6 with the iPhone 11 just like you
do I’m the pro model so if you have a Wi-Fi 6 router you can get faster speed
so if you have that I actually don’t have that yet but once I do get one it
will support it and will have faster Wi-Fi speeds so that’ll be really nice
to see the speakers this year are pretty good I measured about 80 decibels at
their highest level the outside edge but also there’s no sharp edges like there
was on the XS Max for me so that’s pretty decent overall and you
get a nice wide stereo sound so you’ve got that top speaker that projects
directly at you and then you’ve got the bottom speaker and those together give
it a nice wide stereo sound I think it’s about the same as the 10r maybe a little
bit better but it is nice and loud and I think it’ll be great for most people if
you’re not using headphones or maybe having it in your car so when you’re
just on the go or have it in a room playing music it’ll be great for most
people it’s pretty clear it only gets a little bit distorted at
the highest levels now Apple has lowered the price this year of the eleven by
fifty dollars now I would like to see it go even a little bit lower since a lot
of people overseas have even inflated prices on top of what we have in the US
so it starts at $6.99 for 64 gigabytes I think that’s fine for a lot of people
I’d like to see them start at 128 for that price and maybe have the price at
around 600 dollars since overseas it can be hundreds more but it is $300 cheaper
than the pro models so you are getting the same speeds a couple of the grey
cameras and a very very similar experience with the exception of the
display as compared to the pro so they’re very very close and the pro does
get about four hours more battery than the 11 does so just keep that in mind if
you’re trying to decide is the battery life worth the extra three hundred
dollars along with that OLED display if you don’t care about those things then
the iPhone 11 is the one for you and then just keep in mind that
here no iPhone has 3d touch it does have haptic touch with the majority of the
features that you got with 3d touch but instead it’s just a long press on the
display so you’re not getting the same experience it’s very similar but it’s
not the same if you’re coming from an iPhone 10 R it’ll be identical so just
keep those things in mind if you’re trying to decide which one to get and
that’s really it for the iPhone 11 there’s not much more to say about it I
think it’s a great phone for most people if you really care about battery in the
display get the pro if not this is the one for you you’ll be happy with it
overall it’s not as expensive and many times you can find it in buy one get one
free deals and things like that later in the year so just keep your eyes out for
that if you’re looking for one of these and overall it’s a much better value I
think than last year but hopefully it’ll get even better in the future let me

  2. Got my iPhone 11 the day it came out. Love it very much. Fast, great battery life, beautiful screen, great camera and perfect size. I know all about the specs and know enough about tech I don’t need to spend the extra money to be happy with my phone.

  3. Legendary review💯

  4. Love you man❤

  5. Watched many iphone 11 review but your video only satisfies me ❤
    Love from India❤

  6. Nice

  7. Super happy with my decision to go from the XS Max to the standard iPhone 11. I hardly ever use a telefoto lens on a phone. The display is also completely fine… pretty damn good even.

  8. How is the connectivity in the 11 series? (11/11Pro/Max)
    Does it have the same problematic Intel modems as in the XS series?
    Should I wait to the 2020 iPhones with Qualcomm modems or buy the 11 Pro now?

  9. I think ill upgrade my 7 plus to the standard 11, I'd like the telephoto, but too much extra money, thought about used xs max but rather get brand new, and i really want the wide go pro like camera and night mode. the screen isnt a huge deal to me,

  10. i love my iphone 11. kinda wish i spent the little extra and got the pro. but honestly it’s still a great phone too me and coming from a 7 plus i love the no home button, face id, and everything else. Plus i’ve missed having a all black phone 😍 i love it.

  11. İphone 8 Plus upraged iPhone 11 Pro?

  12. Thank you

  13. 11:13 4 hours more than the XS actually. Not 11

  14. Hi Aaron ! It’s a great phone got it in black! Sold my 8 plus and my old 6s everything is great about it especially the camera .Battery life is good better than 8 plus for sure! Using it about 7 hours while at work for calls chat twitter and mostly music and when I get home at night I have around 60% left .Had issue with the xs oled display last year but not with this phone it’s super fast I love it

  15. Aaron, where did you get that stand for your Mac 🖥 desktop ?

  16. Upgrading from X to this 11 tomorrow, great review Aaron!

  17. Super review

  18. It’s not worth it if you have an iPhone 8 or above. Wait till 2020 for the Major redesign.

  19. Dont buy either phones this year. Save your cash for 2020, the notch will be gone and these iphones will look bad when you will look back.

  20. I’m getting an IPhone 11 tomorrow is the camera quality good??

  21. No problems with overheating? Heard a few people had, at least before 13.2 beta or what its called 🙂 Ordered mine today! seems like a solid phone, going from 6s! 😀

  22. Just got mine today, really like it. Product Red 128GB. Upgraded from a 7 Plus.

  23. Apple had me messed up when they took my button.

  24. iPhone xs-xs max or iphone 11 (not pro) I don't really care about pictures since i have a camera and I'm pretty sure the xs camera is also great, but id love to have that 12mp front facing camera. The only reason why I'm considering getting the 11 is because it's the newer model obv lol and since I'm looking for a phone for the next 4 years I'm thinking that the 11 might be a better option because it will get upgraded for a year longer than the xs. Also, I think that the 6.1 inches is the perfect size (not that the xs size is bothering) and if I'm not mistaken the battery is better on the 11 and as I mentioned I want my phone to last for the next 4 years so battery life is important to me. (I'm pretty sure the xs battery is also satisfying tho). Where i live the 11 costs 20€ more than the xs and 30€ less than xs max so price is not a problem. Now on the other hand, i like the xs design much better and i think it has a more premium feel to it. Not only the camera design but also the stainless steel, smaller notch and bezels, thinner sides and i dont really care for the new colors bc i want a black phone, even tho the 11 is more flexy lol. most importantly, the oled screen on the xs is obv better than the LCD on the 11 and while the lcd might be alright at the moment, imagine having an lcd screen in 2023 that can't even play full HD videos. So screen quality really matters to me, since i like editing pics on my phone, watch yt, Netflix etc. Further more, i dont really care for the new chip since they're both the same fast for my use. Now I'm also debating between the xs and the max. I have average hand size and i like how compact the xs is and that it doesn't attract as much attention as the max because I'd like to keep it lowkey and use my phone easily one handed buuut the xs max feels like an even more premium device imo. I like the fact that it has some extra weight to it and since I dont have a tablet and I never use my laptop I'd love to have an all in one device for watching movies and stuff and my thumb can reach the top of phone with a little stretch so i hope I won't be a huge struggle using it outdoors and placing it in my pocket. Lastly, i had been using the s6 edge for 4 years and im using the galaxy a40 for the past 2 months so one of these phones will be my first iPhone. Which do u think i should buy?
    P.S: im not a native speaker, so I apologize for any grammatical mistakes and sorry for the long comment lol.

  25. Thank you for saying that they should lower prices coz iPhone prices are inflated overseas. In the Philippines, the price is ridiculous. It's about 1.2-1.3x higher than that of the US prices. The pro max is almost $2000.

  26. I like the fact that you talk about cell reception……👍🏼

  27. Hi Aaron, don’t know why you always refer the time codes because who ever doesn’t watch the full video don’t know the quality they’re missing out on. Great video, I still have my iPhone XR and I think I’ll have it for the next 2 to 3 years at most and still love it. Really enjoying your content 💪🏽

  28. Is it still the slipperiest phone in existence?

  29. Tbh I love me 11😂😎

  30. Great review as always

  31. Fast charging will let you battery age much faster in terms of capacity, with this in mind no problem with a normal Charger in the box. 😉

  32. Finally. Thanks Aaron! Been waiting for this one. Cannot afford the Pro Versions. I'm so getting this and IPad Air.

  33. How can I turn this beauty filter off I hate it!!

  34. Im well happy with my IPhone 11, father is having my Xr tomorrow when he upgrades from his 6s plus 😀

  35. Great review, thank you very much.

  36. I’m definitely liking this style of video.

  37. It’s glass.! Easily broken ! Until Apple bring a metal casing as with SE Give these new fragile devices a miss !

  38. iPhone 11 pro:

  39. Getting one for Christmas 🙌🏽

  40. If you want to get faster charging on the iPhone 11 without the complication of USB-C to Lightning charging, just get a 12 W/2.4 A charger. While Apple's iPad charger works, you can get something like Anker's PowerPort Elite 2 (I use one myself to charge my 10.5" iPad Pro and iPhone X simultaneously) for around $11 online.

  41. Can't wait till Christmas (upgrading from old Samsung to iphone11

  42. All these iPhone 11’s and I’m sitting here with a 6 that has no service

  43. As for what im see..iPhone 11 is somewhat a good phone to get next year..if you are not into 5g..even new Android will be launch by next year with new Soc and hardware..iphone 11 will still not feel outdated by it..im an Android user btw..but seeing the iPhone 11 especially the non-pro version..kinda tempting to but it..

  44. wow best phone like for me if you think best

  45. I really need a phone my phone is an Samsung galaxy j2 prime it's the wrist it touches by it's self I would like to have a new phone I'm only 15

  46. in us 699 in my country is 899 euros nice

  47. I’m switching to the 11 while having an iPhone 7 🙂 I’m super excited!

  48. can i have this one. please….

  49. Im from South Africa and its great you touched on inflated prices because they’re very very highly inflated here.
    If I had to buy the pro max 256gb in the USA it would convert to roughly 17000 South african rands however the 256gb pro max costs 33 000 South african rands and the standard iphone 11 256gb goes for 19000 rand. Its sad because dollar to rand conversion plus say a little bit more I thought id pay like 21k for the 256gb pro max now I have to settle for that normal iphone 11 256gb

  50. Does the iPhone 11 series have qualcom modems now? I mean all of em?

  51. Watching this & fanatasizing my XR as iPhone 11.😆

  52. Hi zolo you had mentioned the heating issue in one of yr comparison videos. Is it still present ? U said u will speak abt it when u review this phone

  53. Just got this, my first Apple product and love it.

  54. Where is your home
    Visit you

  55. PWM? Yeah, I learned about that on my iPhone X when it triggered vomit-inducing migraines for me. If you're like me and have these OLED iPhones, google "reduce white point". It dims the screen but at least you won't feel nauseous.
    I wish I knew I was sensitive to this prior to spending $$$$ on the X's release day. My next iPhone will definitely be the one with LCD.

  56. Iphone 11 is the best phone of 2019

  57. Digging my iphone 11 as my first iPhone. As a long time android user I now get it. I mean, its not perfect but I get it. If apple manages to get an OLED in this model next year and keeps the price close, they’ll have an even bigger beast of a phone.

  58. Can you make iPhone 11 vs iPhone XS comparison vid?

  59. I like that you really took your time to explain about pwm in this review, most of the mainstream tech YouTubers never mentioned about it. Thank you. Forgive me if I used any words wrong, I’m still learning and trying to improve my English skills ,and watching your videos helped with it. 🙂

  60. I currently have an iPhone 7 and I want to upgrade to an iPhone 11.

  61. Which is batter iphone x or iPhone 11 ??
    In your view

  62. i use iphone 11 for 3 days right now, and i love it… Battery life so good ! & camera too !

  63. @zollotech – I’m also very sensitive to PWM, using the XR since Feb, but strangely I find the panel quality to be slightly worse than my old iPhone 7 (not 7 plus). The 7 display looks sharper & everything is very slightly bigger even at the same font sizes & both phones display zoom set to “standard”.

    Have u noticed anything similar in your comparisons? I think the quality of panel Apple uses for the XR is slightly lower than what they used for the 7 earlier, as the 7 wasn’t a “budget” device.

    Also, curious to know which iPhone do u use personally as your daily driver, since u have issues with PWM as well. Do u use the XR/11 type or are you still on the 8+? IMO the display on the 8+ is the best LCD they’ve ever shipped on an iPhone.

  64. Liked the vid, but a review without talking about the call quality isn't a real review. All reviewers forget it for some reason, probably because they don't even introduce their sim card…

  65. Great description thank you very much .
    Your watcher from Iraq with my regards .

  66. First time i ve seen his face and all i can say is voice doesnt match the face… Maybe jerryrig has ruined it for me 😛

  67. I considering getting an 11 Pro, not the 11, but I'll wait to around March to make my decision. I was able to take portrait photos of objects and animals on my iPhone X. I'm in Costa Rica and the prices for phones go up pretty high here, my iPhone X 64GB cost around $1500 while in the US it cost $999, which is pretty insane!

  68. Sweet hairline

  69. I love my iPhone 11 it is a beauty and it is fast too and it is good enough for me also I love the camera on it and there has been great pics taken with the ultra wide camera I will be using it more. On price I bought the iPhone 11 128GB for $1279 here in Australia and I am glad I picked this model.

  70. In the Netherlands you have to pay 200$ more for the 64GB version….

  71. If only the resolution was 1080p then this phone would be perfect and simple

  72. Great review. I appreciate your hard work and definitely you deserve more subscribers. 😉

  73. Should I get an XR because it’s less money, or should I go for the 11?

  74. My S7 edge has had this camera night exposure time feature since the begining. Innovation

  75. Upgraded from 7+ to the iPhone 11 (white) about 2 weeks ago and trust me if ur upgrading from a 7 or before its worth it, but if ur coming from a 8 then maybe a good upgrade. HOWEVER if ur upgrading from any 10 model to 11 it’s sort of a pointless upgrade except just to show off or for minor upgrades.

  76. Thanks.. great video. Straight to the point. I like it

  77. my little sister just switched for Android after 12 years of using iPhone , I am desperate and want to know a good exorcist address in California , can you help me ?

  79. So the “pro” gets you an additional camera and a better screen? There has to be more, right?

  80. Thx really helpful love the phone

  81. Which color should I get?? I'm leaning toward the blue-greenish color or the purple. Which one should I get??

  82. PWM (pulse width modulation) is such an underrated topic! More tech youtubers need to talk about it more often, as many people are using OLED panel screen phones, but can’t figure out why they’re getting eye strains/headaches/nauseous. Thanks for bringing awareness to this! I wish Apple just made a Super Retina LCD panel already for those who don’t want OLED.

  83. I have the XR and my wife has the 11 and we are both experiencing issues with our text messages, i also noticed my battery life has decreased since installing iOS 13. Anyone having these issues?

  84. I wouldn’t choose an iPhone but I still respect them tho ✊

  85. In Ecuador the iPhone 11 stars at 1000

  86. Aaron, is there still some heating issues after heavy gaming or after charging on your iPhone 11?

  87. The battery on the 11 lasts the same as the pro

  88. Screen is very scratchy and can get scratches even if you baby the phone.

  89. Who else thought it was cool when he turned the light off while on camera app

  90. I’m getting my iPhone 11 next week because I do have the iPhone 8+ because the battery on the 8+ is horrible and I film on my phone the storage and setting aks up so I love the iPhone 11 purple and teal

  91. I have a 6s and I really think this is a gorgeous phone

  92. sometimes just come here to hear "Hi everyone Aaron here for Zollotech" its relaxing

  93. 1:57 all I needed to hear! Thanks!

  94. This is the real executioner of Pixel 4, in every way and in every country in the world where this Apple phone does arrive, while Google's limited to some (the same as always) countries. 🤷🏻‍♂️🤭👌🏻

  95. Imagine getting a thing come up being like software update and reading what you get from updating it and it says “reverse wireless charging” like yeah

  96. Whats you age zollo bro ?

  97. Amazing review!

  98. The hero we need but dont deserve

  99. I love the iPhone 11 but the issue when you play back a video recorded in 4K landscape mode it’s looks bad , like you recorded through a screen. The issue hasn’t been fixed and I’ve tested it on 4 iPhone 11’s and a guy at the Apple store tried it on a sample model in store and saw the same issue. Apple please fix this issue smh

  100. You're right Aaron! Here in Europe it's around 200 Euros more. Only happens with iPhones. Pixel 3A, both in US & Europe was 399! Same goes for pretty much other brands too.
