How to choose an iPhone 11

Why choose an iPhone 11

Updated on 24 May 2024

Published on 24 May, 2024 - Apple released its possibly sleekest iPhone model in September 2019, the iPhone 11. This, along with the iPhone 11 Pro & iPhone 11 Pro Max, make up the 11th gen iPhone family, following on from the iPhone XS. With the price dropping after the release of the iPhone 12 and the specs still incredible, it's a no brainer of a phone choice. The only real question you have to ask yourself is which model to choose.

High specs across the board

The 11th generation iPhone is an excellent, high-spec smartphone powered by an A13 bionic chip, one of Apple's fastest processors. It has a stunning 12-megapixel camera with digital and optical zoom and slightly longer battery life than its predecessor - the battery life is even described as epic by Forbes, no less. If you are looking for the most up-to-date, advanced smartphone technology, the iPhone 11 is one of the top models on the market.

All 3 versions feature Bluetooth 5.0, NFC with reader mode, and in-built GPS, though they vary when it comes to screen size and capacity. When choosing an iPhone, focus on the features that are most important to you - screen size, capacity, and camera specs (photos as well as videos) tend to top the list when it comes to deciding factors for a lot of people.

Of course nothing from Apple comes cheap, that goes without saying, end of story. As with all Apple products, the 3 renditions of the iPhone 11 are very highly desirable, and also very highly-priced when purchased new. The cost of this phone has dropped a bit since its initial release but you're still looking at about a grand for a new iPhone 11 Pro. A refurbished iPhone 11 Pro however, comes with a far better price tag and can offer huge savings of between 20 and 30%. Those savings could easily get you a pair of Airpods to go with your new smartphone. Keep reading to see what you get for the iPhone 11 price.

iPhone 11 Camera

Let's face it, if the camera is one of the most important smartphone features for you, the iPhone just cannot be beaten for the crisp, Instagram-worthy pictures it takes. It just makes life look shiny and fresh. The front facing camera is a 2-in-1, 12 megapixel, wide-angle lens and ultra-wide angle lens. Portrait mode on the 11th generation iPhone deserves a special mention; it has an advanced bokeh setting - who doesn't love a bit of soft, dreamy lighting - depth-control and also 6 lighting effects including natural, contour and stage.

4k Video

Each iPhone 11 model captures true to life photos and also shoots superb 4K video. Apple's QuickTake feature lets you take a video without changing modes.
