An instantly visible novelty of the iPhone 11 Pro compared to the XS and the 11, the “textured matte” glass. In the opinion of all journalists, this new finish retains much fewer fingerprints, but there is a disagreement on its slippery aspect. For Nilay Patel of The Verge, this back is a little more slippery than the glossy back of the other models. For Matthew Panzarino of TechCrunch, it’s the opposite. The frosted glass improves the “grip” a little.
In any case, Nilay Patel reassures about the resistance: the iPhone 11 Pro doesn’t seem as sensitive to scratches as the Pixel 3, whose matt back is easily scratched.
In terms of pure aesthetics, the matte glass of the new iPhone is appreciated by everyone except Stuart Miles from Pocket-lint, who finds that it gives it a “cheap acrylic” look. The iPhone 11 Pro is thicker (0.4mm) and heavier (11g) than the XS, but the difference doesn’t show unless you compare them directly.
The new night-green color, which is expected to anticipate one of the next fashion trends and give a touch of “Pro” (understand “serious”), is viewed favorably by testers. This midnight green often looks like dark grey, except in daylight, where the green is more apparent.
In any case, most customers will place their iPhone in a shell…
iPhone 11 pro mx Screen
The screen will not be covered, or only with a transparent film. The OLED panel is brighter (up to 1,200 nits for HDR content, compared to 625) and has twice the contrast of the previous generation. According to Pocket-lint, the difference can be “easily” seen next to an XS. Mashable is more nuanced, talking about a screen that is “a little more readable” in full sunlight but without a spectacular quality leap.
iPhone 11 pro mx autonomy
In heavy use, the TechCrunch iPhone 11 Pro stayed on for 12 hours, compared to 9.5 hours for the XS.
For the iPhone 11 pro mx, The Verge measured between 12 and 14 hours of use, with more than 10 hours of screen time on. Much better than the 8 to 10 hours achieved by the XS Max: “It’s not enough time for me to do without a recharge in the office during the day […] but it’s a big leap forward, and it’s better than most of the Android smartphones we tested. »
As the autonomy tests carried out by the press are not standardized, this precludes a precise comparison with previous models, but the difference is sufficiently clear-cut to declare that the gain is real. Apple’s promise of an additional 4 hours of battery life on iPhone 11 Pro and 5 hours on iPhone 11 pro MX is not far from being kept. According to these initial tests, we are rather around 3 to 4 hours more, which is already very appreciable. In absolute terms, the autonomy of the iPhone 11 Pro is considered “excellent.”
In addition, Apple now provides an 18W USB-C charger with the iPhone 11 Pro. It’s not the nicest or most compact charger, but it’s still better than the small 5W USB-A charger still supplied with the iPhone 11, notes The Verge. This 18W charger fills half the battery in about 30 minutes.
iPhone 11 pro mx Photos
After the Three Musketeers and Riri, Fifi and Loulou, Apple is introducing a new trio that is set to become famous: the three camera modules of the iPhone 11 Pro. Impossible to miss, they are an ultra-wide-angle (ƒ/2.4 aperture, 120° field of view, 0.5x “zoom”), a wide-angle (ƒ/1.8) and a telephoto lens (ƒ/2.0, 2x zoom). All have a 12-megapixel sensor.
Compared to the XS, ultra-wide-angle is new. Compared to the iPhone 11, the telephoto lens is extra. All of these beautiful people are supported by revised and corrected software algorithms that take advantage of the Neural Engine chip.
Important note: none of the photos taken by the testers use Deep Fusion, the new image processing system based on automatic learning. Deep Fusion will arrive this fall with the promise of further improving photo quality.
In the end, Apple’s promises seem to be well kept. Autonomy is taking a big leap forward, just like the picture. The Verge even goes so far as to say that the iPhone 11 Pro is equipped with the best camera on the market.
