iPhone 11 review: the phone most people should buy

  • Published on Sep 17, 2019
  • Apple’s iPhone 11 offers the best cameras on a phone, terrific battery life, faster processors, and a $50 cheaper starting price than the iPhone XR, at only $699. What’s not to love? The new iPhone 11 is the phone most people who are upgrading to a new iPhone this year should get.

    You know how apple phones cost so much? The iPhone 11 just sounds expensive so when he said, “don’t wanna spend $1000 then you should buy the iPhone 11” it sounded so weird since iPhones are so expensive

    Is anyone having trouble with the iPhone 11 and the night mode? For some reason when I take pictures with night mode on they look really bad and I don’t know if it’s my device or it is because I’m doing something wrong but I’ve seen a lot of videos and none of them appear to have the same problem as me, and I bought it today

    Apple does not offer the best camera, they are not even in the top 3 with battery time. Processor speedo n phones are useless.

    I wanna upgrade, I have an 8+ but idk I rather get the latest and greatest just so I can hold onto it for the next 2-3 years just like I did with my 8+. But goddamn, $699 is really freaking good. I’d end up paying like a 100 bucks if I trade in my 8+.

  • April Taylor

    My husband has ordered the 11 for me. I am not a techie, which is why I am asking the question here. I do use the music function on my phone, via headphones, when I am doing research or writing in the local library or coffee shop. I cannot wear buds that stick into my ears and have to wear headphones. Is there a way of still being able to wear headphones with the 11, please?

      Just Another Science Nerd Thank you. Getting noise-cancelling Bluetooth headphones.

    • Just Another Science Nerd

      I am guessing that your current phone has a headphone jack, whereas the iPhone 11, of course, does not. Two options: 1. Use Bluetooth headphones. 2. Buy an adapter with a lightning connector on one end and a headphone jack on the other. Plug this into the lightning port on the phone and plug your wired headphones into the jack.

    I never had an iPhone in my life. I am 11 btw and I was thinking to upgrade to the iPhone 11. I had my phone for like a year which for some people is quite early to get a new phone but I really like this one and I am not 100% sure i should make the change. If someone has this phone or knows how to is reply to me

    If I was to get the iPhone 11 I would have to get the 11 pro or pro max, because I think the 11 would be a down grade I’m not to sure. 🤔
