Apple’s iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max have the best cameras on a phone; a huge improvement in battery life; bright, beautiful displays; and they come in midnight green. These are some of the most well-balanced, most capable phones Apple - or anyone - has ever made. But starting at $999, they’ll cost you. Here's the review of our midnight green unit.

You actually had the nerve to say that iPhone puts out displays that no one else can match LOL every Android Flagship makes a better display than any iPhone my LG G8 and I also own the S10 plus by the way so I know what great displays are but my G8 and my S10 plus are better than any iPhone by about 10 miles you quadroon negro

Better camera than the huawei. P 30 pro?
herohunter81 11 days ago
Don’t go by the 4-5 hour battery increase their apple described. Those phones were doing specific things and at 50% brightness. Everyones use will differ and so will the results. The battery seems better to me but not drastic. I watch videos ally at full brightness so my phone is getting heavily used.

Great review, and I'm going with the 11 Pro Max, 256GB. Tired of crappy videos, and I'm a content creator who doesn't want to buy expensive equipment yet, nor deal with Android features.

The thing is , it’s not just the hardware , it’s the software too , it has enabled to not carry a lot of gear in the bag like gimbal or mirrorless camera just to get those stable videos

Is the pro or max phone with tele lens worth getting over the iPhone 11

Would spend more on compatibility. Apple must converge.

Have you noticed the light glare when you take photos/videos at night? Wondering if anyone is looking further into this.

Thank you for confirming that Pixel 3 still looks the best despite whatever you had to say in words 😅 Plus the P30 is still miles ahead... And that has been carefully removed from review 😅

What about the microphone? What I hate about my X is when recording someone standing in front of me and talking to them, I am loud and they are quiet. I need mic on both sides.
von7 17 days ago
It already has a mic on both sides. There’s one in the bottom to the right of the charging port, and one to the right earpiece-speaker.

Naming definitely matters. Nobody is doing any type of pro work on a smart phone, whereas their other pro offerings like the ipad pro and macbook pro absolutely do fill that role.

Rent is so cheap and phones are very affordable. I think I’ll ask my friends and family to buy this product and make more money for visa, inc. Then I think I will blame the system for the next 10 years and ask for free college. Why wouldn’t I if i have the latest iPhone.

Faeiz Vanderago both! it’s the worlds fastest phone, with the best smartphone camera. I’ve seen some deep fusion images, and it’s a huge step up again from these images. Video is even more impressive imo!

Hi, I have a question - Do you suggest to put screen protector on iPhone 11 Pro Max? Does it really make sense to put one or it will ruin the experience of touch?
