iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max: video contact
A dejá-vù with an obsession with photography
Let it be very clear: if you are waiting for something super revolutionary or a radical change, this generation is not (neither) yours. Apple takes a long time with a very continuistic philosophy In terms of design and the iPhone 11 are a new proof of this: same frames, drawing, notch and almost the same back. Even the sensation in the hand is repeated.
However, the back does have a noticeable change: now the word iPhone disappears and the apple is perfectly centered, although undoubtedly the more obvious lenses of the cameras, very prominent (by the way) by the house, they are the element that attracts the most attention.
In the case of the iPhone 11 (which looks like an absolute tracing of the iPhone XR – in fact, you would be unable to differentiate them – we have two sensors, both 12 MP: one wide angle and one ultra wide angle. With them you will be able to have many of your needs covered at the photographic level, and you can also move from one lens to another both directly and through a new control dial that incorporates the camera interface that is a joy to manipulate.
With your cameras you can record even in 4K at 60 frames per second (which guarantees softer images), enjoy a significant improvement at the HDR level or a Night mode, which promises a lot, or enjoy a stabilization that is a real wonder, taking care of leveling and balancing small vibrations or typical tremors from when we are recording with our phone.
There is also an important change although this time it is not noticeable in sight in the frontal camera (feature shared with his Pro brothers), also with 12 MP sensor, 4K recording at 60 fps and the incorporation of Slofie, which come to be slow motion selfies videos that I do not predict much success or utility – but, hey, there they are.
The drums of the iPhone XR was already quite good (it is in fact one of the qualities that users of that model most appreciate) and with the iPhone 11, Apple He claims to have improved it, squeezing it one more hour. Obviously in this first contact is impossible to tell you how is the autonomy of this phone, but I hope to tell you more in its future analysis.
Part of the merit of this increase is in the company's new processor, the A13 Bionic chip, which is faster, more powerful and efficient (in different percentages that will sound like that, percentages, so stay in that it is better than its previous generation, which is the important thing). Apple I needed it to be like this: not only to improve autonomy but also for the whole content management that the phone does now, especially at the camera level (keep in mind that you not only need to push to record in 4K; also to later edit this video at such resolution with ease and comfort).
This heart is the same that beats under the chassis of the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. The body however is somewhat different: there is also glass, but matte type, which is very elegant, and the edges with stainless steel. The feeling in the hand is like more premium that in the iPhone 11 and that in the case of the iPhone 11 Pro its size is smaller (the screen stays at 5.8 "while that of the iPhone 11 is 6.1").
By the way, I was convinced that the Max model it would be too big for me, however, it is the size (6.5 ″) that attracts me first, possibly because of my past as a user always of the Plus versions of iPhone.
Again the cameras are especially prominent (Apple it has been proposed not only not to hide them, but to turn them almost into a banner of this edition), with the incorporation into the Pro one more sensor, a third, telephoto lens, with 2 increases, which will give even more play to the photography and video captured with these versions.
The improvements seen on the iPhone 11 are repeated here (both in these cameras on the back and on the front) and of course, we also have a significant battery increase: just as I told you that the iPhone XR had a autonomy fantastic, users of the iPhone XS complained that this was something short, something that may change now that we have the promise of 4 hours more battery in the iPhone 11 Pro and 5 hours more in the iPhone 11 Pro Max – I'm looking forward to Check if indeed the difference is so big.
What luckily does not hold the iPhone 11 is the screen. And unlike this, which comes with a Liquid Retina LCD that does not reach 1080p (really, Apple, at this point?), the new Pro bet on a panel OLED Super Retina XDR That promises to honor the name of the phones. Its brightness is capable of reaching 1,200 nits and the contrast of 2,000,000: 1 (so you have some perspective, the iPhone 11 has 1,400: 1).
It is a joy to watch videos on your screen, although it seems to me that their cameras are a matter of weight to think about buying these Pro versions (attached to the battery), as long as, of course, it is something of vital importance to you. Anyway, it is soon, very soon, to make an assessment like this: it will be necessary to analyze them thoroughly to assess whether it is worth spending the money they are worth. For now, yes, we leave you with some first comparative examples at the photographic level in our video (iPhone 11 Pro vs Samsung Note 10 and Google Pixel 3) so you can open your mouth.
At first I would say that the iPhone 11 will be again the iPhone of the masses, that worthy successor of the XR model with which people will be content to be able to say and feel that they have "the last of Apple», While the Pro will go to a more select audience.
Anyway, what has been said: in the respective analysis of the iPhone 11 and the iPhone 11 Pro we will discuss more about it. Stay tuned
Thanks to GoldenMac for the transfer of the new iPhone 11 for the realization of these first impressions
