Best iPhone 11 review

This is one of the simplest iPhone 11 reviews I’ve ever had to write: the iPhone 11 is the phone most people who are upgrading to a new iPhone this year should get. It’s an excellent phone, with one of the best cameras I’ve ever seen on a smartphone and terrific battery life. Apple also dropped the price by 50 bucks: the iPhone XR started at $749, but the iPhone 11 starts at $699.

None of this means the iPhone 11 review is a perfect phone or that it has all of the best specs and performance you can get. It does not. But it is great where it counts, and it’s totally fine everywhere else. If you want to live on the bleeding edge of tech, you can spend $300 more and get an iPhone 11 Pro, which I also reviewed this month, or look at one of the many high-end Android options available. But most people don’t need to overthink it: just get an iPhone 11 review. You’ll be happy.

GOOD STUFF

  • Excellent camera
  • Terrific battery life
  • Lower price

BAD STUFF

  • iOS 13 is buggy
  • Just one fairly large size
  • Get out of here with this 5W charger
  • The garden is beautiful, but the walls grow ever higher
  • Buy for $699.00 from Apple

The iPhone 11 review is basically an S update to last year’s popular iPhone XR. From the front, it looks exactly the same. It has the same design, 6.1-inch 720p LCD with fancy rounded corners, the same giant bezels, and the same aluminum body.

But that design has been made slightly better: the water resistance is better, and Apple says the glass on the front and back is a little stronger. The camera bump on the back is now milled right into the glass, which is kind of neat, but it is still a camera bump. The whole design remains a little surfboard-y, and it’s definitely not small. If you’re looking to upgrade from an iPhone SE, this thing is going to feel huge.

iPhone 11 Full Specifications

Starts at 64GB
The $699 iPhone 11 review model gets 64GB of storage, which is probably fine for many people — and it’s a $50 price drop from last year’s iPhone XR base model. 128GB for $749 probably makes more sense if you’re shooting any video and 256GB for $849 should only be a consideration if you’re shooting a lot of videos. The Pro phones add a 512GB tier that you won’t need unless you’re shooting in 4K for a living.

Colors: iPhone 11 review is the fun phone
For whatever reason, Apple is still making the lower-priced iPhone 11 review, the one that comes in fun colors. There are two new colors, called green and purple, that are more like mint green and lavender. These new pastel colors replace the blue and coral options from last year.

I have the green iPhone 11 review. Its color is pleasant, and the aluminum case color is much closer to seamless with the glass color. The glossy glass back feels the same as last year’s XR. So does the rest of the phone — except for the dual cameras, which are raised up from the back and placed in a frosted glass camera square.

Unboxing the iPhone 11

The iPhone 11 box is white and just a little bit larger than the phone itself. Inside, you will find the iPhone 11 review bundled with a regular Lightning cable, a pair of EarPods ending on a Lightning plug, and the ancient 5W charger.

Apple is no longer shipping the iPhones 11 review with a 3.5mm adapter.

While the iPhone 11 review supports 18W fast charging through USB Power Delivery, it is not bundled with the new 18W Apple charger that comes with the Pro models. Then again, the iPhone 11 review is $50 cheaper than the XR, and we guess with those savings you can buy the said 18W charger ($29), the required USB-C-to Lightning 1m cable ($19) and the 3.5mm adapter ($9).
