The Top 3 Features on iPhone 11 Pro (First Impressions)
So let’s start with the main thing I’ve noticed in comparison with my iPhone XS Max…Speed. The difference may be small on the outside if you don’t physically own the phone, but with everyday usage, you can clearly see a difference in both the speed and performance thanks to its A13 Bionic Processor. For example:
- FaceID is unlocking a lot faster
- Apps are downloading and opening at twice the speed
- If you’re a gamer, you will have noticed a massive difference with Apple Arcade. The games play seamlessly at a higher speed and performance without draining your battery.
This leads me on to my second point on battery life. There has been a significant improvement in the lasting power of the battery. With the fast charger, you can be 20-30% higher in battery life within 15 minutes and a full charge in just under an hour and a half!
For instance, the other day I charged my phone at 6am and didn’t need to charge my phone all day until the next morning! Now that’s pretty impressive considering my screen time is higher than the average.
Now let’s talk about the elephant in the room…The camera. The key difference is the addition of the ultra-wide lens camera, making it three camera lenses on the phone instead of two. Despite the mixed reviews around the look of the three cameras, personally, I think they add a unique touch to the phone. So now we have the normal wide-angle lens, a telephoto lens, and a new ultra-wide camera. The ultra-wide lens definitely gives you a different perspective as you can see from the pictures I took the other night at Impractical Jokers Live.
The night mode does come in handy. Previously Apple has failed with their camera quality at night, making images grainy and gloomy so this is an impressive improvement. At first, I didn’t think I would be using this as much as I do and I have to say I’m loving it! Again like the speed, this is something that has to be seen to be believed.
The one feature I am looking forward to (which isn’t out yet) is ‘Deep Fusion’. This will be exclusive to the iPhone 11 and 11 Pros. Deep Fusion is a level up to HDR and will take over your camera to take multiple photos within a split second and create the perfect quality picture suited to your environment. With HDR, it takes a low-level and a high-level image and puts them together whereas, with deep fusion, this will look at the textures, colours, lighting of each image and put it together to create the best quality image. This feature will be released at the end of the month.
Overall, I do believe you get your money’s worth from the iPhone 11 Pro. Although there isn’t any massive / stand out of the crowd changes to the phone, it’s all the little additions and updates to the features that amalgamate to make a big change; So making it the best performing phone on the market today.
