We already know the new ones iPhone 11, three new phones that improve in specific aspects to compete against the best Android phones on the market. However, one of the most interesting models of this day has been the iPhone 11, which basically is the new iPhone XR 2019, not only does it have improvements like its older brothers (the Pro models), but it also has a much more accessible and interesting price for most fans of Apple
Let's start with the specifications of both devices:
Data sheet iPhone 11 and iPhone XR
|iPhone 11||iPhone XR|
|screen||6.1 inch IPS LCD||6.1 inch IPS LCD|
|Resolution||828 x 1792 pixels||828 x 1792 pixels|

|12 MP, f / 1.8.|
|Drums||3110 mAh||2942 mAh|
|Colors||Black, green, yellow, purple, red, white||Black, red, yellow, blue, coral, white|
As you can see, the iPhone 11 has the same screen size as the iPhone XRIn fact, it has the same weight and dimensions as last year's iPhone XR.
The first big difference is in the rear camera module, where the dual camera has been released, having a main sensor of 12 Mpx (as in the last model) plus an ultra wide angle sensor. In fact, the technical specifications of the main sensor are the same on the iPhone 11 as on the iPhone XR.
But since the best photographs are not only a result of the hardware characteristics, the iPhone 11 It comes with software improvements that we will not find on the iPhone XR. The first one is the "night mode", which for the first time is released on an iPhone. And with this characteristics we can take pictures in conditions where the light is low or zero.
In fact, night mode is one of the most popular features on Android since last year, so Apple He has done well to bet on this feature.
Another of the things that the iPhone 11 will have but not the iPhone XR is the new black and white portrait mode, which takes advantage of artificial intelligence to remove the colors from the photographs without the need to use a monochrome lens.
In the video there are also differences (few, but there are), and although both can record in 4k at 60fps, the iPhone 11 is the only one of the two models that can exchange between the wide-angle and ultra-large sensor angular while recording video.
Another very punctual difference is the sound, because in this new iPhone the Cupertino company has developed a virtualization system that creates a surround sound with Dolby Atmos technology, so we assume that the sound quality of the new iPhone should be remarkably differential compared to the iPhone XR.
More autonomy, but not so much
Even though Apple does not usually reveal the amount of battery of their devices, it is estimated that the new iPhone 11 has a 3110 mAh batterywhile that of iPhone XR is 2,942 mAh, however, what Apple Yes, he has assured that the autonomy of the iPhone 11 is 1 hour longer than that of the iPhone XR.
Of course, the fast charge of the iPhone 11 is 18W, while that of the iPhone XR is 15W, and NO, the new iPhone does not include the 18W fast charge charger, this is only included in the Pro models.
A processor that does make a difference
The most important difference is inside the new iPhone, as the chip A13 Bionic yes it is noticeably better than the A12 Bionic. In fact, Apple says that the A13 Bonic is the best processor in the world on a smartphone, where they also even claimed to have the best GPU in the world on a phone, so the games could run much better on the iPhone 11.
Of course the data of Apple you have to take them with tweezers, because although they say that the iPhone 11 has a better performance than the Samsung Galaxy S10 + with a Snapdragon 855 and that the iPhone XR itself, the reality is that there are Android phones with better performance with the same Snapdragon 855 (as is the case with the OnePlus 7 Pro), and secondly we must also remember that there is a Snapdragon 855 *, and that the world's most powerful phone uses this processor, in fact, according to AnTuTu the performance of the Snapdragon 855+ exceeds that of the A12 Bionic on the iPhone XR.
Anyway … comparing only the iPhone XR against the iPhone 11 then we can say that the performance is better in the new iPhone, in fact, it is this processor that also allows greater autonomy, allows improvements in the camera and also offers a much more fluid performance in games.
Price: worth it or not
Before giving a verdict I must mention that Apple also announced that the iPhone XR would lower the price, therefore, the current prices of both phones are as follows.
|iPhone 11||iPhone XR|
|64 GB||$ 17,499 MXN||$ 14,999 MXN|
|128 GB||$ 18,499 MXN||$ 15,999 MXN|
|256 GB||$ 20,999 MXN|
Considering the official prices of both devices, I don't think it's worth changing from iPhone XR to iPhone 11, even if you have an older iPhone and want to buy a more modern one, I think the iPhone XR is still a great option (especially for its New price).
Now, if you are a fan of having the latest technology and you think that night mode or wide-angle photographs are necessary in your life, then bet on the iPhone 11, although let's not forget that the difference in money is important.
However, the life of the iPhone XR is still at least another 3 years, so I still think it is a better cost-benefit option than the iPhone 11.
