,45 percent of the worlds population don’t live in the city but rural location with poorer reception quality, many that do live in cities live in concrete or glass buildings with poor reception, many people live in valleys or behind obstructions with poor reception, but no one ever reviews reception or antenna quality for phone calls, why not? It’s a Brett’s big deal and you would increase your views by a hell of a lot.

I can’t understand why almost all youtuber sugar coat iPhones. That’s why it’s never been improve and Apple claim that every features in this phone was improve. iPhone XR and now iPhone 11 still having 1792x828‑pixel resolution NOT EVEN 1920x1080 FullHD and still with 64GB storage. and the same thing with the iPhone 11Pro/Max still having 2436x1125-pixel resolution not even 2560x1440 QuadHD and still having 4GB of RAM and what’s worst is that they remove the 3D touch features and NO more Corning Gorilla 6 Glass that made the iPhone XS. WHy?????????????

The whole camera thing is silly , Let's be real 95% of users are not professional photographers. They probably couldn't even tell the difference between picture from a 7, and this side by side without knowing which is which . All these newer phones, Have good cameras. At least any decent midrange , and up. I think the design of the 11 pro looks hideous on the back. On of the more reasons I went to android..

I have a question. I currently have a 7+ so any upgrade will be an upgrade. I spend a lot of time in a truck for work so my phone is my main source of entertainment whether its gaming or watching movies. I do like taking pictures and videos but I’m not a professional Cameraman by any sorts so I’m not sure if I’ll benefit from the third camera as much. Do you recommend the 11 or 11 pro based on what you read from my comment

Since you said you watch a lot of movies, I want to say go for the iPhone 11 Pro so that you can get that better screen resolution, but I think the iPhone 11 will suit you just fine.

Upgrading from galaxy note 4 should I get the 11 or 11 pro? Don't know if I will like the lcd screen on the 11 since I'm used to oled. Is it worth the 300$ difference?

Much better without a black glass layer in front of the 3 lenses imao. The Pixel 4 looks horrible and (as always) cheap in design accordingly with the leaks. But the cameras for sure it's gonna be great.

Sveeny 5 months ago
@J Johnson absolutely! And that's what they did with this big update. I'm no apple fanboy but I'm looking forward to testing this camera. It's an area where the competitors were much better until now and it was about time they made a big step.

iPhone 7 camera was pretty good. Each year the camera has gotten better tho. If you can do better you should actually do better right?
Sveeny 5 months ago
What should it be about then? Processor is incredibly fast, screens are top notch, iOS 13 brings tons of features. The only thing that was lacking were the cameras so camera update it is with this generation. And no, the iPhone 7's camera is bad in comparison to this generation of phones. It's not even a comparison.

@Daniel Martinez ...or a larger sensor but that will make the whole phone much bigger.
Daniel Martinez
Daniel Martinez 5 months ago
Tech guy I don’t think that can happen. Night mode is basically bulb mode on a dslr. So the shutter stays open for a certain amount of seconds. If you move it will be blurry. If you point at a moving car you will see a light streak. I don’t think we have that type of technology right now. They only thing they can do is have high iso but that will make the video grainy or noisy

Why do people pay attention this kind of money for a phone? It seems like people allow themselves to get way out of control with their phones. It was better when you had to be at home, to receive that phone call, and a computer was by itself on a desk at home. Back then, people had common sense and knew that phone like today would cause problems for them and other drivers. Now it seems like the phones have updated twice and you need to have the really cool new version. Waste of money.

Sounds like an opinion of yours. It's either you're old or just can't afford to keep up with technology. New stuff is exciting and constantly innovating the future of tomorrow. Life before all of this was still fun but all of this just made it a way better experience.

Depends on your budget. Get the 11 because next year's iPhone is rumored to get a design upgrade.

what If you use your phones for 24 hours of Netflix and RUvid like the rest of us ....lol that battery will be dead by lunch
L S 5 months ago
For the pros it’s something like 18 hours of local video playback. That means watching Netflix but only shows you downloaded to your phone before watching, with WiFi and data services off, and likely at 30% brightness or less, They claim 12 hours of video streaming, likely again at low brightness, but if they even get 10 hours of realistic video streaming I’ll be very happy.

I can't wait to upgrade to the 11 pro max 512gb! So pumped! But upset that my friends $350 s9+ can play this video in 1440p and the $1500 phone I'm getting can't ☹️

I’m honestly disappointed and amazed how apple is so freaking stubborn in adding a at least 1080P screen on iPhone 11. Like come on anything under 1080P 2 years ago on phones is ridiculous. Like why tf is an iPhone is literally the only phone in the market right now with less then 1080P screen. I mean for gawd sake even budget phones nowadays have Oled screens. I swear apple is brain dead dumb for not even wanting to upgrade the screen to 1080P on iPhone 11. It’s not even expensive to add a 1080P screen plus a fast charging as well on iPhone 11. Heck $300 phones nowadays have fast chargers that come with it. Unbelievable. Like I want to like apple but with how stubborn and greedy their are just makes me think nothing but negative thoughts on apple instead of being positive with apple iPhones.

A screen that small is not a huge difference between 720 and 1080 and 720 is much more energy efficient

Jon Peach

Jamonte Weathers I guess but pictures taken with a flash still look better in certain situations. The new Huawei mate 30 pro with xenon flash looks decent just wish people would test the flashes as well instead of night mode. The flash was used for night indoors etc anyways

Jamonte Weathers lol you joking right the flash is important as well. It’s an important part of photography in general. Hence why they made a True Tone flash and made it bigger on the new phone

well now theres really no need to talk about flash nor is there a need for flash when you have night mode and you can change the exposure

Ladies and Gentlemen if you want a bad ass camera then spend your money on a Nikon or a Cannon because no matter what phone you’ve got their cameras are nothing compared to the two brands I’ve just mentioned, I own a D3400 and wow 😲 I’ve captured some great pics
