What is the camera of the iPhone 11 pro

IPhone energy

camera, iphone

The capacity of the “dozens” battery is 2716 mAh. 2 hours of operation for the iPhone 7:

  • when listening to audio. 60 hours;
  • watching video. the battery will last for 13 hours;
  • with continuous talk, the battery will last up to 21 hours;
  • those who like to climb on the net have less. 12 hours, which, in principle, is quite a lot.

Also, the iPhone X supports fast charging. Half the charge is gaining in half an hour! Of course, the iPhone can charge wirelessly using the Qi docking station.


The six-core processor of the A11 Bionic version is 25% more powerful than the previous versions. It is capable of processing billions of operations per second! iPhone 10 does not always use not all 6 cores, but only 4, for everyday tasks. The other two are connected when the smartphone is under heavy load. This technology allows you to handle most operations with negligible energy consumption.

The iPhone X chip makes the application and games look realistic. A new level of smoothness and color depth allows you to fully enjoy it.

IPhone X front camera and screen design

Opinion about the notch at the top of the iPhone 10 screen is mixed. Someone thinks it looks cool, some think it’s awful. But that was the only way to concisely fit the TrueDepth camera. And it’s worth it! The new front camera of dozens shoots just amazing!

The ability to shoot high-quality media content on the front-end fully justifies Apple’s decision regarding the notch at the top of the screen. Compare the front camera of IOS with Android. everything will become clear.

In an upright position, this notch is difficult to see. However, if you turn the device horizontally to watch video, it will be more noticeable.

Another cool thing about the iPhone X is HDR playback. The smartphone can recognize video encoded in Dolby Vision and HDR10.

The Face ID scanner has replaced Touch ID. Using this function in the tenth iPhone, you can unlock, verify your identity in Apple services.

Face ID consists of an infrared camera, emitter and point projector. Thanks to these elements, Face ID works extremely accurately and without errors.

Protection against accidental and fraudulent unlocks has been implemented. Masks and photos are not recognized by iPhone. The owner must look directly at the camera. Only then will the lock be lifted.
What’s cool is that if the owner’s appearance changes, the iPhone will recognize him. Thanks to machine learning technology. If you get older, fatter, or vice versa, the device recognizes you.

One drawback. you still have to touch the iPhone with your hand and slide your finger up from the bottom of the screen.
Face ID makes it incredibly easy to buy and download apps from Apple services. Previously, you had to enter a password or poke your finger to make a purchase and start downloading a file. Now you don’t need to do anything. The face scanner takes care of this.

IPhone X review

Today PClegko will give a full review of the iPhone X. There will be a detailed review of the iPhone 10 camera and iPhone specifications. The iPhone X is an Apple game that ended up being successful. Removing the home button and redesigning the design is a dramatic and risky move for Apple. After all, how many years in a row iPhones were created similar to each other and differed only in size and internal filling!

The iPhone has many advantages, but there are also disadvantages:

Of course, there are more advantages. The main and undeniable is the combination of the latest technologies in one device. Apple developers are simply handsome in this regard! Plus, they made this device really comfortable.

The iPhone of the tenth model is a break in the pattern that Apple mobile phones need. In addition to the original iPhone in 2007, the tenth model influences the direction of the company’s development. Apple itself called it the future of the smartphone, which the company has been trying to achieve for a decade.

The loss of reliable elements such as the Touch ID fingerprint scanner, the home button, the introduction of new methods of managing and unlocking the phone is risky for an organization with an established tradition of phone production. over, before that Apple had already got rid of the usual headphone input.

The fascination with this phone speaks volumes. But is the new iPhone X really needed? Will he be able to transform a company where many of the specifications that Apple has implemented are already on the market (wireless charging, facial recognition, camera)?


The firmware has also undergone changes. After all, the “home” button is gone, and the screen has changed dramatically. It has become larger, therefore, there is more space for content too.

The internal interface of the iPhone has changed, but it is done in such a way that some changes are not noticeable at all. And you can immediately get used to most of them due to their convenience.

The only inconvenience is the language switching button. Located under the keyboard at the bottom and you can overlook it at once.

Although it is not very convenient to press, but after a week you can get used to it. But the keyboard “Tens” has become more beautiful and more convenient.

Apple iPhone X. birthday and price

  • The first episode was released on November 3rd
  • The most expensive smartphone in its segment
  • comes in 256GB and 64GB options

for a model with 256 GB, and for 64 GB you need to pay 79,000 rubles. But Apple connoisseurs are eager to buy these models.

According to the tests carried out, the tenth iPhone became the leader in terms of data processing speed and performance:

Geekbench 4. testing in the single-core segment.

BaseMark OS 2.0 test. the gap with androids is already smaller, but still the iPhone is in the first position.

Also, do not forget that most Androids have little memory of their own. They support cards, but apps are mostly installed in system memory. Lack of space causes braking. The iPhone, especially in the 256 GB configuration, does not have this problem.

? The telephoto camera in the iPhone 11 Pro. Nice and useful upgrade

Television itself is nothing new for iPhones. It appeared in the iPhone 7 Plus, stayed with the 8 Plus, and then delighted X and XS owners, including the Max.

Only the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max have a telephoto lens this year. The captain suggests that the regular iPhone 11 doesn’t have it. The iPhone XR didn’t have it either.

So, I’m disappointed that the telephoto camera remains exclusive to the more expensive iPhone model. I do not speak for everyone, but most of the photos I take with the telephoto lens. Without her, it’s like no hands.

iPhone 11 Pro, telephoto, blur effects off.

Under normal lighting conditions, the telephoto lens provides a “free” optical zoom that allows you not to come very close to the subject and at the same time make it the real center of the frame, cutting off all unnecessary things. The absence of typical distortions for the “shirik” (the main lens of the iPhone) is also an important plus.

It’s great to shoot people, faces, animals on a telephoto camera, and even food due to the greater focal length. The resulting frame resembles the fruits of shooting with a good “SLR” plus a “fix” at 40mm. You can repeat this on the iPhone XR or iPhone 11 with their “widths” only in the photo editor, and then conditionally.

All in all, iPhone 11 owners walk past my favorite lens. But what’s new it will give iPhone 11 Pro buyers?

IPhone 11 Pro telephoto lens specifications

The TV set in the iPhone 11 Pro consists of six lenses and shoots photos at 12 megapixels. Pixel size 1.0 μm (micrometer). Focal length 52 mm, aperture ƒ / 2.0.

What are the differences here (and not only here) from the iPhone XS?

First, the aperture has finally been improved. What’s in X, what’s in XS / 2.4 is now 0.4 less.

In simple terms, the telephoto can now capture a little more light and blur the background a little more, even without portrait mode. ƒ / 2.0 matches the minimum aperture of many prime lenses for full-size cameras.

From a technical point of view, this is a big achievement for Apple and mobile photography in general. For you to understand, the Samsung Galaxy Note10 telephoto can “fall” to ƒ / 2.1, and the Huawei P30 Pro. and at all only to ƒ / 3.4.

This is a photo on an iPhone 11 Pro telephoto without the software blur effect.

Secondly, “televik” now takes photos brighter and more detailed at the same time. Yes, the fact is logical according to the previous point, but you still need to talk about it separately.

See, here’s a tutorial on how telephoto lenses generally work on the iPhone. If there is a lot of light in the frame, then it actually works. As soon as the light “leaves”, the lens turns off automatically. it is replaced by the main camera (“shirik”) with the support of digital zoom. It is worse than the natural optical one in the “telephoto”: more noise, less detail.

On the XS and X, the telephoto was very moody. If he doesn’t like it, he’s just say goodbye and hello to the digital zoom. On the iPhone 11 Pro, he became more patient. Changing the camera during the day is an exception to the rule both in cloudy weather and during the day indoors.

This means that photos on the telephoto lens of the iPhone 11 Pro will more often be captured on it, with a real optical zoom. The quality is better, the details are not lost in post-processing. I hope I explained more or less, my metaphors are not very good today.

Thirdly, portrait mode works at close range. I first noticed this during the shooting, then I looked at the characteristics and made sure. everything is logical with such an aperture upgrade.

READ  How to Get iPhone Out of Recovery Mode

No more nervously shaking the camera or walking far away trying to shoot something with a blur effect. The arm’s length is enough for the iPhone 11 Pro to successfully activate the effect.

It is difficult to explain what is so amazing here. It’s just that I was constantly bothered by the messages “step away” on the iPhone X. You stand and juggle your iPhone for 10 seconds, squat, take a step back there is no such thing anymore, and therefore I’m glad.

In general, any upgrade of this module will suit me, so I’m almost 100% satisfied here. He has only one drawback associated with the night mode (or rather, its absence).

? Wide-angle camera in iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro. What changed

I noticed that many people incorrectly call the main camera in the iPhone. Either “shirik”, then “super-wide” they write, and you won’t understand what they really mean.

We remember. The main camera in the iPhone is wide-angle, and it has been since time immemorial. Do not confuse wide and ultrawide modules, they are completely different.

The wide-angle cameras of the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro Max are 100 percent identical. There is no hidden feature exclusively reserved for the Pro or Max models. I checked.

Non-zoomed shots on the iPhone 11 and Pro’s main cameras look the same on the MacBook Pro. In this situation (I will say more about zoom) between 11 and Pro there is full parity.

IPhone 11’s screen resolution prevents camera photos from expanding properly.

However, I do not just mention a laptop with a good screen. On the smartphones themselves, the difference seems to be not in favor of the iPhone 11, and the reason for this is its display. As I did not like him in XR, he is not happy here either. Not so much color rendition as resolution.

With such a diagonal, the display of a regular “eleventh” iPhone does not convey all the details of camera photos as well as the high-resolution OLED matrix in the iPhone 11 Pro does.

I can’t help myself, but I constantly see grain in the frames of the Film, which is not in the photo itself. I hope that next year this branch of smartphones will return at least an honest Full HD.

IPhone 11 main camera specifications

“Shirik” in the iPhone 11 and Pro consists of six lenses. Shoots at 12 megapixels with a pixel size of 1.4 microns (micrometer). Focal length. 26 mm, aperture ƒ / 1.8.

The iPhone XS had exactly the same parameters. Then what’s the upgrade?

First, the sensor has changed. How exactly it was improved, only Apple engineers know. Officially, they only said that the fast focus technology. Focus Pixels. now covers 100% of the matrix. No wonder

The camera now focuses faster and more accurately. Indeed, the difference between the iPhone 11 and, say, my old iPhone X is visible to the naked eye. Especially in low light: “ten” misses four times out of five, when “eleventh” almost always captures even small details in the shadow in Focus.

Secondly, we added improved image stabilization in the video. There are a lot of examples, here is one of them:

Stabilization itself is not a new feature. It was in both the XS and X. This year Apple “just” changed both lens vibration reduction mechanics and post-processing.

The result when shooting handheld, IMHO, is very worthy, and for a smartphone it is absolutely awesome. It is a pity that physics has not yet been able to deceive. strong shaking still causes the “wave” effect and image distortion. An external stabilizer is still needed if you are going to shoot a video for professional tasks.

Thirdly, we improved the Smart HDR post-processing algorithm thanks to the A13 processor in the iPhone 11. Due to it, the balance between light and shadow is better conveyed, which is especially important when shooting in sunny weather, in general during the day and especially in winter.

Snow is traditionally hard on smartphone cameras, and on my iPhone X it turned into a completely white canvas.

One can argue for a long time about why the change in the Smart HDR algorithm did not spread to the iPhone XS. but we will never know the answer to this, except for the person on duty (the processor seems to be new, all the cases). Unless we think it over and leave it on Apple’s conscience.

We figured out the technical differences, sample photos and comparison with the iPhone X below.

Why the iPhone 11’s ultra-wide-angle camera is worse than the rest?

Against the background of the other two in the iPhone 11 Pro or even the main one in the iPhone 11, the “ultra-wide” is noticeably weak in several key points, which will not be so easy to fix in the next generations of the iPhone.

The picture around the edges is very blurry. This is a feature of ultra wide-angle lenses in general, so there is nothing surprising. It’s just that for many owners of the “eleventh” this super-width will be the first in life, and out of habit, they will lament.

Loss of sharpness is noticeable, it is impossible to fight with it. About 50% of the frame will be in focus in the center, the rest will be blurred. It remains only to accept this fact and hope that next year Apple will come up with some kind of software miracle.

The ultra-wide-angle camera, as expected, does not pull out either video or photos at night.

Ultra-wide photos are the darkest of all three iPhone 11 Pro cameras. There are several factors at once. The aperture of this camera is lower than that of the rest (or the one remaining) in the new iPhones.

Okay, the aperture, but it is additionally subject to the optical limitation of ultra-wide-angle lenses. the loss of aperture as a whole at the edges of the frame. This is physics, you can only partially adapt to it. As a result, vignetting is strong, it can be slightly corrected programmatically, but not to such an extent that it completely disappears.

No optical stabilization at all. Oddly enough, this is not a very noticeable minus. a high angle of view allows you to alleviate the effects of natural shaking when shooting.

But keep your iPhone firmly in place anyway, especially if you’re shooting with ultrawide indoors or in bad weather. There are more blurry photos purely statistically than on the rest of the iPhone 11 cameras.

Pay attention to the killer vignette. There is little light, the optics do not help, the matrix cannot cope.

Finally, super-wide is helpless in poor lighting and even more so in the dark. This type of lens needs a lot of light. If not, don’t expect a clear photo.

The iPhone 11 generally prefers to slightly blur the image in post-processing, rather than twisting the ISO and leaving harsh noises. Therefore, in a situation with an ultra-wide lens and poor lighting, the edges of the frame will be very dark, and the “soap” can easily reach the center.

Superwidth is not perfect. But then again, GoPro shoots worse, and Apple’s first attempt. As I said in my review of the iPhone 11 Pro, having an extra lens is a definite plus for the owner. You just need to be able to shoot with such a camera.

Therefore, I do not quite understand why the “popular” iPhone 11 was presented with such a thing. Here’s something, but a telephoto would look much more logical on it, IMHO.

How the frame changes depending on the lens, iPhone 11 Pro

iPhone 11 Pro quickly switches between three lenses, so you instantly have access to all three cameras for any creative task. Here’s what to expect by changing the crosshair:

Left to right: telephoto (2x), wide-angle (1x), ultra-wide (, 5)

Review of cameras iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro Max. Two is good, but three is better

Apple has long been required to take iPhone cameras more seriously. Cupertinians listened, but how attentively?

We’ve written reviews of the smartphones themselves. catch up if you missed: iPhone 11 review and iPhone 11 Pro review.

This article will focus exclusively on cameras, their capabilities, changes after the iPhone XS and personal impressions of shooting.

I will give photos for each camera, some of them will have sliders. I warn you: because of this, the article “weighs” a lot, so it may take longer than usual to load.

A few more pictures for you to compare

So that you can engage in comparing other pictures at your leisure, here are a few more pairs. Including shots from the front camera.

Also remember that no enhancements were included on the Note10, they are simply not included in Apple.

Compare cameras on iPhone 11 Pro / Pro Max and Galaxy Note10 / 10. who is better?

You can say as much as you like that product A is better than product B, but blind testing, when people choose what they like without regard to the brand, speaks most of this. We invited you to participate in such a comparison of the cameras of the iPhone 11 Pro and Galaxy Note10. This comparison also applies to older models, since they are identical in photo part.

You had paired shots and the opportunity to see the originals if you wanted to. For the purity of the experiment, the EXIF ​​information was removed from the files, but many easily guessed which model was hiding under which number. So, the first number hid pictures from the Galaxy Note10, and the second. the iPhone 11 Pro. You can find the material with voting here.

All pictures were taken in automatic mode, which is on by default (this is how Samsung worked in this case to detect scenes and improve them). The iPhone does not have a similar mode and all photos are improved by default, an algorithm unknown to science. Looking ahead, I will say that the Note10 camera won by a large margin, since the pictures seemed to you much more interesting than those on the iPhone 11 Pro. Samsung is adapting the camera software so that the pictures look good both on the smartphone screen and on the computer, it is worth keeping in mind. In the case of the iPhone, the pictures look better outside the smartphone, since the display gives its own error, and the camera often misses the white balance and draws a completely unreal picture.

Let’s go through the individual shots to see how each camera shoots and what the differences are. Let’s start with a snapshot of the city at night.

The colors on the Note are more vivid, vibrant, and convey the way the street looks. The colors on the iPhone are muted, and you can say they are natural only if you have not been on this street. In the picture taken with the Note, there is a flashlight flare, a stripe on the left (most likely there are fingerprints on the lens, it happens). Nevertheless, despite this, many appreciated this particular picture. The overweight is small, 56 to 44%, but it is still present.

The situation is quite the opposite with the photo of slippers on the main camera, here the iPhone wins with a slight advantage.

I don’t like how the Note worked on the legs, they look darkened, it’s just corny ugly. And this well characterizes the fact that any camera cannot be perfect and does not always give a guaranteed result, in photography you need to talk about the probability, it can be high or low. But not one hundred percent.

READ  Can I charge my iPhone overnight

But the telephoto lens slippers turned out to be better for the Note. Why? The answer lies in the fact that there are brighter colors, higher detail. In the photo from the iPhone, it seems that they are somewhat blurry.

The girl’s head came out better on the Note, although each shot has its own pros and cons. The advantage of Samsung in this case is quite large (68 to 32), but this is more likely due to the elaboration of the details of the denim jacket, the picture turned out to be more vivid. This is what people like, what they want to see.

The tea bottle is a snapshot that surprised me. On the iPhone, when you photograph objects of the same color, there is almost always a color shift. In my case, the tea turned out to be absurdly highlighted, but Samsung, opposite it, slightly tinted it. But Samsung was nevertheless closer to reality.

The telephoto shot of this bottle shows an even greater difference, the iPhone smudges the details, blurs them, while the shot on the Note is saturated, sharp. Very often, the disadvantages of Note and its cameras are recorded that the pictures are sharp, ringing. But this is exactly what the average consumer wants to get, sharpness and a pleasant picture, we live in the era of Instagram and pictures, which were initially spoiled by all sorts of enhancements. But this does not negate the fact that the iPhone copes with details much worse, the telephoto camera in the room shoots so-so.

Mushrooms in a plate, this shot shows Samsung tried to identify the food and tinted the plate as well as the mushrooms themselves. I do not like this result, since the plate is still white, as well as the mushrooms are not of the same color. But there is still this trademark warmth, while the iPhone turned out to be cold, as if food was lying on a surgical table (68 by 32, your choice is quite eloquent). As for me, both devices did not cope very well with the subject.

The girl reaches for the sky. This shot is definitely better on the Note, and here you can see that the light is warm, various small details are well worked out. But the iPhone did not have enough dynamic range, the brightness is overwhelmed, the picture is faded (78 by 22%, which is also quite justified).

Wherever there are light sources in the room, the iPhone produces a rather nondescript picture. The iPhone algorithms try not to experiment again, not to give better results. And the pictures are boring enough. Look at the picture of the hotel chandelier (73 x 27%).

The fact that the snapshot from the Note is more lively does not raise questions. This is really so and there is no need for picky study. What happens when you shoot close-up? Let’s take a look at the moss.

Alas, but again the lack of vividness of the picture kills all the iPhone’s chances of recognition (73 to 27%). One shot is alive, but the other is flat, expressionless. And the study of moss looks questionable in the picture from the iPhone.

But with the bark of a tree, an interesting situation emerged, as they say, and a broken clock shows the correct time twice a day. The fact that the iPhone in white balance often turns green played a good joke when photographing the bark, the picture turned out to be much more expressive (the picture is more realistic with the Note, but more beautiful with the iPhone).

Votes were distributed as 26 to 74% and this is significant. In telephoto mode, the story is exactly the same, there are no differences.

The photo of the playground divided the ratings almost in half, some people like the muted tones of the iPhone, some chose the Note. I like the iPhone photo here more, but not at all because it conveys reality more accurately, it is not, but because it turned out to be neutral-cold. There is a warmth in Note that I don’t associate with autumn.

Blurring the background or portrait mode on the iPhone (live photo on Samsung), here the votes were almost equally distributed, a slight advantage for the iPhone (47 to 53%). Since I used the default settings, the background blur in Samsung is not aggressive, the background is visible.

Please note that the algorithm from the iPhone does not correctly crop the outlines of the leaves, blurring them. But given that the picture has a blurred background, many people like it (47 to 53%). But this is how you can blur the background on Note already in the gallery, there is post-processing of such pictures.

We got a strange story with blurring of colors (45 to 55%), I don’t like both the first and the second pictures here. In Note, the picture is tinted, but the iPhone made it faded, the flowers are not at all the same in life, they are bright.

The bench shot also lacks aggressive blur, the default setting. Hence, a slight preponderance in favor of the iPhone (43 to 57%).

Conclusions about comparison and quality of cameras

I repeat that there are no ideal cameras, each device has its own strengths and weaknesses, which means that scenes in which one camera shoots better than the other. It all comes down to the ability to get a high-quality picture, how likely is it that you will like it.

If you look at the statistics, then a total of 16 pictures were compared, this is quite enough to get an idea of ​​the cameras. The grades were distributed as follows:

  • Won by Note10. 8 shots, with a large majority in terms of the number of votes;
  • Won iPhone 11 Pro. 2 shots with a large margin;
  • Approximate parity. 6 shots.

From the results of blind testing, it becomes clear that people like the Note10 and its cameras in most situations, it’s just the number of your ratings. It is clear that you can turn off AI and get more natural photos, but I deliberately gave a head start to the iPhone so that it does not look completely bad.

The camera in the iPhone 11 Pro is a huge step in the right direction for Apple, and they have finally improved night vision, closer to their current flagships on Android. But in general, the camera still suffers from the lack of a large number of settings that are needed for those who are trying to squeeze the best out of the picture and know how to do it. Algorithms for processing images on the iPhone give off white balance, very cold colors with a bias towards greens. I don’t like these photos, and they look even worse on a smartphone screen.

Reading the comments to the original comparison, I caught myself thinking that many Apple fans assumed that the subject of their worship would not be up to par. In principle, the reasoning is correct, given that the cameras in the iPhone have never been a strong point and lost to the flagships of other companies. Hence the invention of trembling hands, a lens smeared with sour cream and similar tales. powerlessness from realizing the truth always hurts. This material reflects how ordinary people perceive photos, this is your assessment and my contribution only in that I gave the original photos for comparison. Alas, Apple saves on everything in its flagships, including software for cameras, on the quality of modules and gives only the necessary minimum. However, you can see for yourself if you read the comparison between Note10 and iPhone 11 Pro.

How OLED screen differs from IPS. iPhone 11 vs iPhone 11 Pro

Apple has three current smartphones: iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max.

iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max differ from iPhone 11 type and the size of the screens. Top OLED in older models versus the best IPS on the market in iPhone 11. The former is objectively cooler, but the latter also has strengths.

Before the iPhone 11, I used the XS Max and I can soberly judge the pros and cons of technology. By the way, yes, the eyes did not leak.

Top 5 advantages of OLED screens over IPS

Two OLED and one IPS.

Apple calls the 11 Pro screens the Super Retina XDR. The company deliberately does not focus on OLED, because the displays for it are made by Samsung. it puts the same in its modern smartphones from the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note lines.

“The Super Retina XDR display is our best display ever for an iPhone,” Apple emphasizes on its official website. These screens differ from standard OLEDs of other smartphones with fine tuning, which emphasizes the advantages of the technology.

With OLED screen, battery power is enough for everything

Increased energy efficiency. OLED screens do not have the familiar LED backlighting used in IPS. It is not needed, because they consist of organic LEDs, each of which glows separately.

This makes it possible to increase the battery life of smartphones, which Apple is especially proud of. The company stresses that Super Retina XDR uses up to 15% less power than other manufacturers’ screens.

The more energy efficient screen made it possible to increase the battery life of the iPhone 11 Pro by 4 hours, and the iPhone 11 Pro Max by 5 hours compared to the iPhone XS and XS Max. New items can play video without stopping 18 and 20 hours, respectively.

How the OLED iPhone screen plays out in the sun

Brightness and contrast. The standard Super Retina XDR brightness in the Pro line is 800 cd / m². IPhone 11 screen is called Liquid Retina HD, and its standard brightness is 150 cd / m² lower. 650 cd / m².

The higher the brightness, the higher the readability of information under the rays of the bright sun. On the beach, flipping iPhones on OLED will be much more enjoyable. This is especially noticeable when you enable the new dark theme of the site.

In contrast, the gap between IPS and OLED is even higher: 1400: 1 versus 2,000,000: 1. I would not say that this is so critical in real use, but the difference is obvious.

You can clearly see that the black color in the iPhone 11 looks more like a dark gray

The depth of black. To show as black as possible, specific dots on the OLED screen are turned off. IPS still illuminates the entire display, so black appears to be a dark gray. The difference is really visible.

The simplest test is the Calculator application. If you open it on iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro (Max), the first will show the difference between the screen and the frame, and on the second they will merge.

Some even say that the dark theme from iOS 13 is frustrating to use on IPS. But I always have it on, and I’m fine.

HDR in iPhone 11 Pro even supports YouTube

High Dynamic Range support. Super Retina XDR supports HDR, but Liquid Retina HD does not.

In WDR mode, some areas of OLED displays can deliver up to 1200 cd / m² brightness. For example, in a video of the night sky, lightning flashes. On older models of current iPhones, it will look more realistic.

Apple even claims that in this case, the Super Retina XDR screen can be compared to the Pro Display XDR, which will be sold with the Mac Pro in December.

READ  How to make a screenshot on iPhone 6s

The bezels around the screen are really too big

Separate pixel backlighting. It is because of this feature that OLED screens have much more perspectives. Thanks to this, you can break a flat surface and create any shape.

Apple is particularly proud of the Liquid Retina HD IPS display because it was able to cut the True Depth cutout and round the corners. Super Retina XDR made it all easier.

It is precisely because of the backlighting that the iPhone 11 has noticeably thicker bezels than the iPhone 11 Pro and Max models.

Top 5 advantages of IPS screens over OLED

Apple has brought IPS technology to the highest possible level and called it Liquid Retina HD. This is one of the most practical screens on the market, which she first put on the iPhone XR, and then on the iPhone 11.

The engineers used a fundamentally new lighting technology, which gave them the opportunity to make it the desired shape. The stability of the supply of OLED is questionable, so the company will not give up IPS soon.

The more often you look at the smartphone screen, the more important the absence of PWM is.

Pulse width modulation. PWM, if abbreviated. With this technology, most manufacturers of smartphones with OLED screens adjust their brightness. Apple among them.

To set the brightness level to 75%, that is how long the backlight of each pixel is on, and the rest is turned off. The brain perceives this as a change in the intensity of the glow, but this can hurt the eyes and the whole head.

If the frequency of switching on and off is less than 200 Hz, the detrimental effect of the technology is especially critical. According to NotebookCheck measurements, the iPhone 11 Pro has 290.7Hz and 245.1Hz for the iPhone 11 Pro Max. The iPhone 11’s IPS screen has no PWM, so no problem at all.

Here you can clearly see how OLED on the iPhone goes pink compared to IPS on the MacBook.

Maximum correct color rendition. All current Apple smartphones have a wide P3 color gamut. The company has fine-tuned the OLED to make it look as realistic as possible.

It stays that way at maximum brightness, but when you decrease it, Super Retina XDR fades a little to pink. this can be seen against a white background.

Most likely, to increase the refresh rate in PWM, Apple also lowers the voltage per pixel. The technology is called DC dimming and just leads to such consequences. It only catches the eye in direct comparison with IPS.

Individual pixels on the iPhone 11 screen are simply not visible

However, today the iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max have 458 PPI. On the one hand, this value seems to be redundant. On the other hand, it looks like the 326ppi iPhone 11 is stuck in the past.

This approach is easily explained by the structure of the subpixels that make up individual dots on the screen. IPS has a standard RGB scheme, so 300 PPI is enough for it. OLED uses PenTile and analogs, for which 450 PPI is just right.

The iPhone 11 with IPS wins in terms of CPU and battery usage. Less is better here.

Replacing an IPS screen is always cheaper

Availability and prevalence. IPS screens are simpler and cheaper. You can especially feel it if you break it and come across a replacement. The difference in repair will be up to two times.

It makes no sense to consider actual iPhones, because there are still too few parts for them, and are in space. With the previous generation, the situation is more obvious. For iPhone XR screen replacement they ask 7-8 thousand rubles, iPhone XS (Max). 11-13 thousand rubles.

The difference is also felt when buying a new device. Not least because of this, I took the iPhone 11, not the iPhone 11 Pro.

The longer the OLED screen is on, the worse it can get. this is especially true for display cases.

Reliability and durability. OLEDs have several problems that have been attributed to them for a long time. The main one is the burnout of points.

If you used Android smartphones with support for always active screens, you definitely noticed that information on them is constantly moving. This is necessary so that the same pixels do not burn out.

It’s hard to say how critical this is for the iPhone 11 Pro, but it makes you wonder about their reliability. IPS technology is time-tested and certainly does not suffer from such diseases.

All this is only true for a pair of iPhone 11 and 11 Pro

The advantages of OLED could also be attributed to the technology of a constantly active screen, which becomes possible precisely thanks to a separate backlight for each point. But Apple did not implement it in the iPhone 11 Pro line, so here by.

Usually OLED is also distinguished by the ability to activate by tap. However, Apple was able to do this even on the IPS screen of the iPhone 11, so this is not an advantage either.

In total, you need to look at specific models of OLED and IPS screens. The iPhone 11 Pro (Max) has some flaws, but it is obviously better than the iPhone 11 with its merits. But this is a special case.

Hopefully, now it became clear that you shouldn’t blame the iPhone 11 for its low resolution. this is its advantage, not a disadvantage. Plus, this is not the only difference from OLED in older models.

IPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro display

iPhone 11 features a 6.1-inch “Liquid Retina HD” IPS display, while the iPhone 11 Pro family boasts a sharper OLED “Super Retina XDR” display. While the IPS display on the iPhone 11 delivers true-to-life colors, the OLED on the iPhone 11 Pro is brighter in sunlight, can display true blacks and more detail in bright areas. In particular, the iPhone 11 reaches a maximum brightness of 625 nits, while the iPhone 11 Pro reaches 1200 nits. Both models support True Tone and Haptic Touch, but neither of them support 3D Touch, which Apple has dropped.

The IPS display is mainly what Apple was able to bring down the price of the iPhone 11 over the iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, but it will be more than enough for most users who use their iPhones for social networking and gaming.

IPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro camera

Aside from the display, the camera is one of the biggest differences between the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro.

The iPhone 11 has a dual 12-megapixel camera system with wide and ultra-wide lenses. It also supports a new Night Mode for high-quality low-light shots, auto adjust, optical image stabilization, 2x optical zoom, brighter flash, six-effect portrait mode, and Smart HDR.

By comparison, the main difference between the iPhone 11 Pro’s camera is its third telephoto lens. You also get dual optical image stabilization, 2x optical zoom, and 10x digital zoom. The main advantage of a telephoto lens is that it allows you to magnify distant objects without losing image clarity. For example, when photographing wildlife from afar or photographing at a sporting event.

The front camera of the new iPhones is the same. 12 megapixels versus 7 megapixels for the iPhone XR, and it also supports 4K video (the predecessor can record maximum in Full HD). There are also various features like “slow-motion” (slow-motion selfies), which are available for both the regular iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro Max.

How the iPhone 11 differs from the iPhone 11 Pro

The newest smartphones from Apple, iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro, will start selling in Russia on September 20. Despite the fact that they look very similar, smartphones at the same time are very different: for example, the iPhone 11 is made in an aluminum case, and its front and back are made of glass, while the iPhone 11 has replaced the aluminum frame with stainless steel and made the back matt surface. And this is not the only difference.

Apple claims to have made “the toughest glass in a smartphone” for all three iPhones in 2019, and promises that it will remain intact if you drop it or otherwise accidentally damage your iPhone.
