iPhone 11 Review: The Best Phone for the Money?

The iPhone 11 is officially on the market. If you’re tempted by Apple’s new handset, but not sure if it’s worth your money, you’ve come to the right place! Scroll down to find out everything you need to know about the iPhone 11, including its price, specs and camera details.

The iPhone 11 at a glance

  • The iPhone 11 is available to purchase now
  • Prices start at £729, and go up to £879 (but it’s much cheaper in the US)
  • It has the same 6.1-inch screen as the iPhone XR from 2018
  • The iPhone 11 has a dual-sensor rear camera
  • It runs iOS 13
  • The iPhone 11 is powered by Apple’s new A13 Bionic chip
  • There’s no support for 5G

The iPhone 11 was unveiled alongside the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max on September 10 and, despite its name, it’s actually the spiritual successor to Apple’s previous generation iPhone XR.

They share very similar specs and a fairly similar design, with the only big immediately noticeable difference is that the iPhone 11 is available in different colour options.

iPhone 11 design and display

The iPhone 11 looks very familiar, but the biggest change to the design is a controversial one.

It has a massive camera bump on its back, to house the new double-camera array. That bump looks considerably chunkier than the ones you’ll find on the back of Android flagships like the Huawei P30 Pro and the Samsung Galaxy S10, and it’s bound to divide Apple fans.

However, the step up in camera performance (explained in more depth in the section below) should be worth it.

Apple has also clung onto the divisive screen notch, which was popularised by the iPhone X two years ago, for at least one more year. Many Android manufacturers have now ditched it for more subtle solutions like the teardrop notch, cutout camera, and pop-up camera, and the iPhone notch is starting to look a bit dated in comparison.

While the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max boast OLED displays, the iPhone 11 has to make to do with LCD. Apple is still sticking with the “Liquid Retina” moniker for the iPhone 11 display instead of adopting the new “Super Retina XDR“, and it remains 6.1-inches large with a resolution that’s only slightly above 720p.
