The best $700 iPhone Apple has ever made – CNET

the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max – When you first hear the name of Apple’s new iPhones — maybe some questions. Where is the iPhone X< - span section="inline-annotation|leads"> ($900 on Boost Mobile)? And what is the iPhone Pro… Pro power? What is in the last year XS&nbsp happened;and XS-Max< - span section="inline-annotation|leads"> (for$1,000 at Best Buy).? This year new phones sequels are polished (literally and figuratively) the three we have in the last year. For some people, iPhone 11 only has to be better than the XS. And, in fact, is. But for others, it is nice to know where Apple stands in the larger landscape of the mobile phones. There are wild-5G speeds on the horizon, plus bizarre and expensive foldable mobile phones like Samsung Galaxy folds. And then there are the more expensive $799 (£669, AU$1,049) Google-Pixel-4, which actually makes the $699 (£729, AU$1,199) iPhone 11 look like an even better value.

Apple did a great job with new functions, including some serious camera improvements like night mode for photos in low-light situations and Deep Fusion, a new way for the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro for editing of photos in situations where the lighting is bright enough for them to see, but nothing like outside on a Sunny day.

But there is a good reason why the company is calling it is more expensive and fancier mobile phones “Pro” in this year: the price. Apple is smartly targeting the $699 iPhone 11, as the telephone for most people, in the same Form as the iPhone XR< - span section="inline-annotation|leads"> ($599 at Apple) last year.

Essentially, the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro are 85% of exactly the same phone. If you want a dedicated Tele-camera with 2x optical zoom, a variety of options for the size, a better screen and ready to pay you will get 30% more. This is not to say, the $999 iPhone 11 Pro and the $1,099 11 Pro Max not great phones. It’s just that the iPhone 11 is actually that good. And that’s why Apple built the “value” phone with its wonderful cameras, solid (the have survived, CNET ‘s drop and water Test) and iOS 13.2 deserves the iPhone 11 CNET Editors’ Choice Award.

editors ‘ note, March 30: Even five months after the Apple iPhone 11 and 11 Pro, the phones started yet represented, two of the best that you can buy today. In February, the Galaxy S20 to start from the prIce of $999. Technically, it is the cheapest phone in Samsung’s current generation. in comparison to the Galaxy S20, the iPhone 11 is an absolute steal.. The original review, published Sept. 17, follows below.

Apple’s new phones have more cameras, low price


starts at 64 GB

The $699 11 model iPhone gets 64 GB of storage, which is probably good for many people and it is 50 price drop from last year, the iPhone XR is a $-base model. 128 GB for $749 it probably makes more sense if you shoot all the video and 256 GB for $849, it should only be a consideration if you shoot a lot of video. The Pro-phones don’t add a 512 GB tier that you need, unless you shoot in 4K for a living. See the table at the bottom of this review for complete price information, including the British and Australian rates.

colors: iPhone 11, is of fun phone

for whatever reason, Apple, the cheaper iPhone 11, the a is still comes in fun colors. There are two new colors, called green and purple, the more like mint green and lavender. These new pastel colors to replace the blue and coral options from last year.

I have the green iPhone 11. Its color is pleasant and the aluminum case color is much closer to seamless with the glass color. The glossy glass back panel feels the same as last year, XR. So, the rest of the phone does with the exception of the dual cameras, the risen are from the rear, and in a milk glass-a camera.

In contrast, the iPhone 11 Pro models have all the metallic colors: silver, space gray, gold and military-esque midnight green. The three cameras seem to be more industrial (maybe it’s impressive). The back glass is matte, instead of glossy. They are made of steel instead of aluminum. And the Per-cell phones feel much denser. Pack adds bigger batteries, and steel weight.

I like that the iPhone 11 will follow in the footsteps of the iPhone XR, and is the middle size phone with a 6.1-inch screen — in comparison to the two iPhone-Pro-models on 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch. I’ve come to favor of the smaller iPhone 11 Pro, as the iPhone XS in the last year.


in the past few years, Apple has made impressive progress in terms of camera quality, but so do many other phone manufacturers such as Samsung, Huawei and Google. The camera arms race is something that hard-core photographers study claim closely, but I would it is way way past what most people need. The iPhone 11 cameras, are some of the best for photos and video capture that you can buy today.


The iPhone 11 can switch between a wide-angle, and uw-wide angle lens. The iPhone 11 Pro can do the same, but also provides a Tele-camera closer to the subject.

The 11 comes with a new uw camera, night mode for low-light photography, Deep Fusion processing for better indoor shooting, faster autofocus and sharper images with accurate color reproduction. For a more in-depth look at the camera-differences between this year’s iPhone and last year, read our iPhone-camera-comparison between the iPhone 11 with Deep Fusion and the iPhone XR. The ultrawide offers a radical change in perspective, can be dizzyingly unique visually. This is not your go-to camera, but it is only to be used a blast to.


This plate of scallops really the focus when shooting with the iPhone 11 ultrawide-angle camera.

night-mode is an important feature that the catch up will help Apple to similar features of Google, Huawei and Samsung.  And so far, Apple’s version is impressive.

night-mode, how it works and when it is not to be

As Google’s-Pixel 4, the Huawei P30 Per and Samsung Galaxy Note 10, with surprising low-light photos seems to be in every cell phone manufacturer in the computational doghouse now. The Apple version brightens the photos, captured less image noise, and does all of this automatically. The way it works is, if you open the default camera app, the intended phone, if it is dark enough, you can go in the operating mode “night”. At this time, there is a manual way to trigger the mode.

night-mode uses adaptive exposure bracketing and takes a series of photos, some with a longer shutter speed, the other with a shorter one. The iPhone then all the photos together backups in order to avoid motion blur, and brightening shadows. If I handheld night mode shots would be the sequence takes about 3 to 5 seconds. When I got the iPhone on a tripod with a 10 second time and was even able to manually override that for a 28-seconds-Night-shot-mode.

I took a photo of a tree in my backyard was in total darkness. Below is a photo with the iPhone 11 with night-mode and another with the last year’s iPhone XS.

The HDR-like feel of the photos keeps some of the night effects, but at other times the photos look like at the end of the day. The night mode can be disabled by tapping on the icon, and slide the timer, but so far it is already an improvement in almost every instance.

It is not a perfect tool: faces are blurred, Details lost. But, nevertheless, I have already enthusiasts. The night mode, effects, the the same work on the iPhone 11 iPhone 11 Pro, but the Pro gets, a telephoto camera that can use it.

you can’t use the night mode in the ultrawide-angle mode, though. The camera ends up looking much darker, and there is no optical image stabilization, either. That’s true on all of this year’s models.

Frame can do the shots to the right, and the uw-camera of funny things.

Ultrawide angle = drama camera

The newest camera in a uw-13mm has lens to use that is just a plain fun. If the main big camera is like a business suit, and the “tele” lens, a sporty blazer, then the ultrawide is equivalent to a Hawaiian shirt. It is obviously different and really changes the way you shoot. It will not be big in every situation, but it can be equal parts practical, such as when you are in smaller spaces, and artistic, the drama to add to a mundane scene.

Apple cider-well-balanced, the distortion, so that it is a little (what do you want for the uw-look- ) but it is not terrible. I immediately found the angles on my subjects, made them look bigger than in real life. Best of all, you can use the ultrawide lens when recording video. In fact, during a recording, you can switch between the cameras. Apple even has a cool zoom effect for the transition between the lenses. 

Without a doubt, it can be used for stunning shots. Uw cameras are another new trend is about mobile phone cameras. Apple promises a couple of additional benefits here. The iPhone 11 is an improved uw-angle to Portrait-mode, can work with close-ups on your Pets and other things All mobile phones get an advanced view-finder, the now preview, what is outside of the recording which can help you know when the ultrawide lens.


The uw-camera works for photos and videos.

Patrick Holland/CNET

A funky extra also covers some of the uw-camera-data in a short video, if you press and hold the camera button in the camera app. It seems to attract people that perhaps out of the frame. So far I have not had to work in this mode for me.
