For most Apple fans, September 20th marked the date the remarkable iPhone 11 was released; just 10 days after the phone was unveiled for its marvelous features. Likewise, with just about every Apple release ever, the iPhone 11 released to many five star reviews, and all-around contented consumers. Nevertheless, it’s easy to lose track of what the iPhone 11 excels at when compared to its predecessors and competitors. In this article, we count down the top five aspects and features of the note-worthy iPhone 11!
1) Pure Processing Power
Still standing strong as the fastest chip Apple has made to date, the A13 might be a short name but processes faster than just about every and any chip on the market. The design of the A13 consists of a six-core CPU, 2 of which are called Lightning, and the other 4 are energy-efficient cores named Thunder. The A13 also houses a 4-core Apple-designed GPU. The 2 Lightning cores within the A13 runs at 2.65 GHz, and contain machine learning accelerators titled AMX blocks, which are capable of handling up to one trillion 8-bit operations per second. Making it an astoundingly remarkable phone chip.
In comparison to its predecessor, the A12, the A13 is 20% faster in terms of its speed and also utilizes 40% less power, making it not only energy-efficient but also exceptionally powerful, delivering an outstanding performance that is competent and powerful enough to outperform several chips used in computers. This feature of the iPhone 11 outshines most of its competitors and is the iPhone 11’s main claim to fame.
2) Sharp Display
With such high standards for its processing power, the iPhone 11 has not let its customers down when it comes to the incredibly high-resolution display. In terms of exact specifications, the iPhone 11 showcases an 829 x 1792 pixels for its screen resolution which spans across its 6.1 inches of screen size.
Although the screen resolution isn’t 4k, the iPhone 11 can still capture video and snap photos in 4k, which is four times more than the standardized 1080p we’re used to seeing on the daily.
As for the LCD the iPhone 11 utilizes, it is termed as the liquid retina HD display, which can be seen in the display of the iPhone XR as well. When it comes to the iPhone 11 Pro, the resolution increases to 2436 x 11245, across the 5.85-inch OLED display.
Another significant advantage of the iPhone 11 display is the vibrant colors it offers. For the iPhone 11, it has a 1400:1 contrast ratio, while the iPhone Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max has a 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio. The contrast ratio refers to the ratio of the luminance of the brightest color to the darkest color that the phone is capable of generating.
Unfortunately, only the Pro and Pro Max exhibit support for High Dynamic Range. HDR for short, refers to a larger contrast between the brightest and darkest parts of the display, which would mean the Pro and Pro Max models are more accurate, precise and sharp with the colors.
3) Top Of The Line TrueDepth Camera & Front-Facing Sensors
Equipped with unprecedented processing power, and the best displays out there, the iPhone 11 puts it all to use in its sensor system. Here are the sensors and cameras, from left to right at the front of the iPhone 11:
- Infrared Camera
- Flood Illuminator
- Proximity Sensor
- Ambient Light Sensor
- 12MP Camera/TrueDepth Camera
- Dot Projector
As for its front-facing TrueDepth camera, this allows for technologies such as facial recognition, Memoji, Animoji and many more! The front-facing camera of the iPhone 11 is highly capable, being able to shoot 4k recordings at up to 60 fps.
4) Rear Cameras
On the back, what can be seen is the popular dual 12MP camera design. With ultra-wide capabilities and a 2x optical zoom alongside a digital zoom of up to 5x, users can capture remarkable moments while not sacrificing on quality.
The dual 12MP camera also displays many astounding features. Such as portrait mode, portrait lighting (with six effects), optical image stabilization, panorama, night mode, auto-adjust, and a plethora more for the user to take advantage of.
5) Sleek Design
There is no doubt that Apple has pulled off its iconic design this time round. With the little-to-no bezels and a notch at the very top, the iPhone 11 adapts what has been profoundly been beloved by many in previous iPhone designs, but changes and upgrades the design to remain modern, and enable users to seamlessly utilize the phone without having the design interfere.
The iPhone 11 comes in at 150.9mm tall, 75.5mm wide, 8.3mm thick and weighs 6.84 ounces. Furthermore, the iPhone 11 employs what has been said to be the most durable glass ever within a smartphone. And as for what we see from durability tests and reviews, it is evident that the iPhone 11 holds its position as being ultra-durable, keeping its original shape even when accidentally dropped.
All-in-all the iPhone 11 is phenomenal in just about every aspect and feature it targets, making it produce great results thanks to its exceedingly high resolution, terrific interface, and unique design. This goes to show that the future of our technology is in good hands, and I’m positive Apple will be achieving more groundbreaking records and results with their phones in the near future.
