In contrast to a portion of my associates, I’ve never possessed an iPhone. Notwithstanding, new iPhone discharges are as yet captivating to me. Apple gadgets are huge notwithstanding for those of us immovably planted in Camp Android — if simply because they give us a potential diagram for where a portion of the challenge may pursue. Like it or not, Android OEMs frequently give close consideration to whatever Apple is doing. That is the reason the Android Authority group needed to investigate Apple’s most recent lead, the iPhone 11 Pro Max.
In our iPhone 11 Pro Max survey, we investigate what it resembles to utilize an iPhone as an Android client. We likewise investigate whether the Pro contrasts the challenge.
About our iPhone 11 Pro Max survey: We utilized the iPhone 11 Pro Max for seven days on AT&T’s system. The unit was bought by Android Authority for the reasons for this survey. It is running iOS 13.

The iPhone 11 Pro Max looks and feels fundamentally the same as the iPhone XS Max. This isn’t excessively astounding, as Apple’s enormous revive with the iPhone X was just two years back. Try not to give the iterative plan a chance to trick you, the iPhone 11 Pro Max brings some huge enhancements to the blend.
Outside the camera and handling bundle, which we’ll get to in a minute, the tech here might appear to be all around dated to Android clients. The iPhone 11 Pro doesn’t have an under-show unique mark scanner and still packs a huge indent at a time where Android show scores are contracting or leaving totally. Hell, we’re notwithstanding observing the principal telephones with foldable showcases this year.
Obviously, Apple has consistently been about moderate and determined changes. By the by, this is positively the most dominant iPhone to date.
Dissimilar to Macs, the utilization of the term Pro on an iPhone feels like just advertising.
The genuine inquiry is I’m not catching it’s meaning to have a “Master” model? Apple guaranteed during its press occasion the camera was what made it ace. Obviously, the less expensive iPhone 11 has nearly precisely the same highlights, however, it loses the zooming focal point and has a couple of other minor changes. In all actuality, the change was likely about showcasing. A year ago’s iPhone XR surpassed the more costly XS line, as there wasn’t sufficient to truly separate the XS. Yet, the Pro moniker is welcoming for the individuals who need the most perfect — include another popular expression like Max and blast.
The iPhone 11 Pro Max is in this way for the individuals who need the best highlights, the greatest screen, and wouldn’t fret paying a little fortune for the respect. Your wallet will be lighter a short time later, yet you’ll have one epic beast of a telephone.
What’s in the box?
- 18W USB-C charger
- USB-C to Lightning link
- Lightning earphones
Apple tends to keep extras to a minimum when it comes to the iPhone’s in-the-box experience. This remains true here, though Apple now includes an 18W charger so you don’t have to pay extra for quick charging. The bad news is you still don’t get an adapter for your wired headphones if you’re still using the kind with a 3.5mm jack.
- 158 x 77.8 x 8.1mm
- Custom Gorilla Glass
- Proprietary lightning connector, vs USB-C
The iPhone 11 Pro Max looks nearly identical to the iPhone XS Max from the front. The notch remains the same, complete with the Face ID camera and an earpiece in the center. Where the iPhone 11 Pro Max design stands out is on the back. The new triple camera immediately catches your eye. It’s big, bold, and honestly a little bit ugly. Like the notch, the unique triple camera style here is something few will instantly love. It does look better in person and you also quickly get used to it.
The back completion is a decent matte glass that looks great, however, feels extraordinary as well. Contrasted with numerous different glass telephones, is anything but a unique mark magnet. The structure is somewhat tricky, however, in case you’re spending over a thousand dollars on a telephone, chances are you’ll include a case. Want to keep your telephone exposed? Apple asserts the telephone has the hardest glass in a cell phone — a custom form of Corning Gorilla Glass that nobody is eager to disclose to us much about. The iPhone 11 Pro Max additionally has IP68 water-and residue obstruction.
The iPhone 11 Pro Max may be greater and thicker than its antecedent, however, it additionally feels progressively tough.
So as to make the telephone’s battery bigger, the iPhone 11 Pro Max is the heaviest iPhone to date. At about 18 grams heavier than the XS Max, you will feel the distinction. It’s likewise somewhat thicker, as well. Some should seriously mull over this a negative, yet I have constantly favored some weight as it makes the telephone feel more strong. I’m a little over the everlasting mission for more slender telephones, particularly to the detriment of battery limit or basic respectability.
The remainder of the telephone will feel quite recognizable, however with close examination, you’ll notice slight contrasts with the catches, which have all been descended only a hair.
Apple offers the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max in Silver, Midnight Green, Space Gray, or Gold. These hues look great however I discover them somewhat exhausting. I wish Apple offered the iPhone 11’s increasingly brilliant decisions like red and yellow, yet your sentiments may contrast.
- 6.5-inch Super Retina XDR OLED
- 2,688 x 1,242 pixels, 458ppi
- 2,000,000:1 difference proportion
The iPhone 11 Pro Max’s presentation may have a similar indent and goals as the XS Max, yet there are some prominent overhauls here.
The absurdly named “Super Retina XDR” show is fundamentally more splendid than the iPhone XS Max. Apple asserts the presentation can arrive at 800 nits of pinnacle brilliance, and can even hit 1,200 nits when matched with HDR10 and Dolby Vision recordings. In spite of the fact that my Pixel 3 XL handles the outside moderately well, the iPhone 11 Pro is incredibly simple to peruse even in direct daylight.
Apple has additionally increased the differentiation proportion to 2,000,000:1 when contrasted with its ancestor’s 1,000,000:1 difference proportion.
Apple keeps on improving its showcase ability and it’s sheltered to state the iPhone 11 Pro Max effectively stands its ground against the greater part of its rivals, including the Galaxy family. The showcase has incredible clearness, shading exactness, and brilliant review edges.
Be that as it may, as Apple giveth, Apple taketh away. 3D Touch is currently gone. Apple has obviously abandoned its weight touchy showcase innovation, deciding on the product based haptic touch tech utilized in a year ago’s iPhone XR. With haptic touch, you utilize unobtrusive taps and hold a finger on the presentation, rather than really pushing down extra hard. The purpose behind the expulsion was probably going to make more space for really valuable things, for example, a greater battery, and to spare a couple of pennies all the while. Actually, I never truly utilized 3D Touch, however, some may feel this is a little advance in reverse.
Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max: Performance
- Apple A13 Bionic
- 2 x 2.65GHz Lightning + 4 x 1.8GHz Thunder (Hexa-center), 7nm procedure
- 4GB RAM
- 64, 256, or 512GB stockpiling
Apple is known for superior chipsets, because of a blend of bleeding edge processors and the nearby combination with Apple’s product. This is the reason an iPhone will, in general, perform similarly just as or superior to an Android gadget regardless of regularly pressing less RAM. Notwithstanding, a “Professional” telephone with only 64GB of capacity on the base model is just insufficient in 2019; iPhone 11 Pro Max choices should begin at 128GB.
I put forth a valiant effort to challenge the iPhone 11 Pro Max’s equipment, playing new games like Oceanhorn 2 and Mario Kart World Tour, running benchmarks left and right, etc. Everything opened immediately, screen changes were smooth, and I never experienced any recognizable execution hiccups or log jams. That is beyond what I can say for my Pixel 3 XL.
True execution implies significantly more than benchmarks, yet it’s in every case great to perceive what the information yields. On Geekbench 5, the 11 Pro Max scored 1,328 for single-center and 3,478 for multi-center. You may see that the scores for Geekbench may appear to be somewhat low, however, that is on the grounds that form 5 changed the old scoring framework.
To place it into point of view, my Pixel 3 XL scored a much lower 513 on the single-center and only 2,148 on the multi-center. The Note 10 Plus accomplished 717 on the single-center and 2,637 on the multi-center.
Next, we ran the iPhone 11 Pro Max through 3DMark, where it seized 5,404 in the Slingshot Extreme test, versus 5,692 for the Note 10 Plus. This gives a slight edge to the Note. Finally, we put the iPhone through AnTuTu where it appraised 454,013. The Note 10 Plus didn’t excel at only 369,029.
The iPhone 11 Pro Max is an amazing gadget, there’s no denying it. Some portion of this originates from the tight programming/equipment combination. So, a lot of Android telephones will feel as quick and liquid (or possibly almost so) as the iPhone. Additionally, watch out for Gary Explains, as he is going to dispatch another arrangement that at long last sets iPhones against Androids in another form of Speed Test G that supports iOS also.
- 18W quick charging
- Qi remote charging
The iPhone XS Max didn’t have a terrible battery life, yet it wasn’t especially astounding either. Fortunately, the iPhone 11 Pro Max has a considerable amount more squeeze. I’ve discovered the telephone can without much of a stretch endure the day and frequently past.
Normally, I will, in general, utilize my telephone, for the most part, to browse email, do work, message people, and tune in to music or web recordings. During my testing I made a point to invest additional energy messing around, viewing YouTube, and doing other serious assignments to perceive how far I could push screen-on schedule. Consistently I’d end with a lot of juice but then oversaw screen on times around or above 6.5 hours.
One day I chose to give it a chance to play YouTube about always throughout the day while I was working. When I returned home I let it circle some more YouTube while I ate. I at that point played Oceanhorn for a piece before bed. With the majority of this, I made it into the 13-hour screen on-time mark. Obviously splendor was around the midway imprint and not lifted the whole distance. I believe this specific score to be to a greater extent an accident that doesn’t mean genuine by any stretch of the imagination, yet it was as yet amusing to see.
With regards to genuine utilization, you’ll see that you can watch films, mess around, tune in to music, snap pictures, and more without stressing over racing to the outlet before sleep time.
On days when I didn’t utilize the showcase to such an extent, I effectively made it into day two. For instance, as I compose this segment, the iPhone 11 Pro Max is at 30% with around 6 hours of screen-on time use and a lot of screen-off time for music and such. It is right now at 10AM and the telephone has been off the charger for well more than 24 hours.
In addition to better battery life, Apple also supports fast charging and this time it’s included in the box. The 18W charger can take the Pro Max from 0% to 48% in about 30 minutes. This is a major improvement over the 5W charger included with the XS Max, but there are plenty of Android devices offering even faster charging, such as the Galaxy Note 10 Plus and OnePlus 7 Pro. If charging speed is your thing, keep an eye out for the upcoming Oppo Reno Ace with its 65W charging rate.

While the iPhone has historically been an industry leader in mobile photography, devices like the Pixel family have led the way for the last couple of years. With the iPhone 11 Pro Max, Apple finally catches up and arguably exceeds what the competition currently has to offer. Triple (or more) cameras are nothing new in the Android world, but it is a first for Apple.
I really enjoyed the iPhone camera app and found it easy to get around. I especially like that when you’re using the standard camera, the interface actually shows you a preview of what is outside the frame. If you decide the picture could benefit from the ultra-wide lens, switching over is easy.
I’m a beneath normal picture taker, however, even my photographs figured out how to look great with the Apple iPhone 11 Pro. That is an achievement, you will scarcely believe.
Daytime photographs have pleasant and adjusted hues, and pictures look truly characteristic. Numerous cell phone cameras tend to overprocess and oversaturate, however, that is not as a lot of an issue here. Most photographs I took nailed introduction effectively. A slight change in white parity is observable when exchanging between the focal points, yet it is almost unnoticeable except if you are looking carefully.
The iPhone, at last, has its own night mode, which it turns on of course on the off chance that it distinguishes the need. You can flip it on or off and you can likewise extend and modify the time it takes to catch the shot. Apple worked superbly with its night mode and it makes the iPhone 11 Pro a characteristic decision for low-light photography. There’s a lot of detail in pictures however the nearness of a little commotion in the pictures demonstrates the camera didn’t make a decent attempt to diminish it. This is really something worth being thankful for, as forceful post-preparing can sort of ruin the outcome.

In the image above there were a few puppets in a showcase shop window that was dull. I was snapping pictures at 5 AM in light of the fact that I’m an uncommon sort of sleep-deprived person (fortunately no cops were approached me all the while). Night mode worked wonderfully here, particularly when contrasted with the Pixel 3 XL. The pictures were crisper and more extravagant, while the Pixel had a sort of foggy impact and cleaned out hues. The iPhone’s whites are really white and hues pop more.
Another intriguing point to note is that brilliant road lighting will, in general, produce a ton of glare in the Pixel 3 XL’s evening photographs while the iPhone 11 Pro took care of these circumstances much better. Without a doubt, the Pixel 3 XL is a year old and going to get a successor, so we’ll be eager to perceive what Google conveys with Pixel 4.
With respect to the remainder of the camera experience, it was about what you’d anticipate. Representation mode functioned admirably yet frequently missed spots and had issues with the pattern, just like each other cell phone out there.
There are a lot of different upgrades in the camera equipment and programming, incorporating better inherent altering and a few refinements to video. The Pro is extraordinary for recording video in 4K, with help for 60fps from each of the three of its back focal points. Video adjustment additionally works truly well here and is extraordinary for insecure given individuals such as myself (I have to work out additional).
One expansion to the camera experience that didn’t interest me was moderate movement selfies (#slofies, as Apple — and ideally nobody else — calls them). I felt it was a really gimmicky element and can’t see it being helpful, however, I’m not actually down with the cool children.
Generally, we truly like the iPhone’s camera and it might simply be the best versatile camera around the present moment. For those intrigued, we’ll be setting the iPhone 11 Pro against the Note 10 Plus and Pixel 4 very soon.

- No earphone jack
- No 3.5mm connector in the case
- Spatial sound
- Lightning earbuds included
Albeit wired earphones are consistently the best choice for portable utilization, the iPhone 11 Pro speakers really solid truly great. In addition to the fact that they get really boisterous, they likewise figure out how to do as such without turning into a misshapen mess. The iPhone 11 Pro Max additionally offers “spatial sound,” which is a virtual encompass decoder that supports 5.1 and 7.1 Dolby groups. For instance, Netflix will play in Dolby Digital 5.1 as a matter of course.
AptX HD – what is it and for what reason would it be a good idea for me to mind?
Apple is pushing remote (especially its AirPods) hard, so you’ll presumably need to get a couple of Bluetooth earphones or a 3.5mm connector. Obviously, Apple includes a couple of fundamental Lightning earbuds in the case. While I wouldn’t depend on them as your principle hotspot for sound, they sound okay and will do after all other options have been exhausted.
Software: This ain’t Android
Android is about customization and adaptability, both at the purchaser and OEM level. There are a few special kinds of Android out there beside stock. What’s more, in the event that you need to take that experience and further adjust it there are a lot of launchers, simple approaches to change default applications, and even the capacity to stack completely new custom ROMs for certain gadgets. The iPhone 11 Pro Max is so not Android.
iOS takes a considerably more blundering methodology. You can’t generally change the format by any means. There’s no application cabinet on the off chance that you need it, there are no custom launchers, you can’t change default alternatives, etc. The upside to this is iOS will in general work fine and dandy out of the case, and the way that it holds your hand a piece and doesn’t change particularly implies it is regularly somewhat simpler to figure out how to utilize.
The contrasts among iOS and Android aren’t simply in their way to deal with adjustable programming, it’s in the whole design, settings, notices, and basically every other part of the experience.
The hole between the two OSes isn’t exactly as huge as some may suspect, however making sense of where comparable highlights are taking some alteration. What’s more, obviously a few things iOS can’t do, just on the grounds that it doesn’t fit with Apple’s vision for iOS.
iOS is quick, utilitarian, simple to utilize — and not for me.
With the iPhone 11 Pro, we currently have another form of Apple’s working framework: iOS 13. The greatest champion is another framework wide dull mode, something we’re seeing with Android 10 also. Past that, there are a huge amount of enhancements to applications like Messages, Photos, Apple Maps, and Reminders.
On the off chance that you’ve utilized iOS 11 or iOS 12, regardless you’ll feel comfortable here, as iOS 13 appears to be increasingly about refinement and in the engine changes. That is the manner by which I felt about Android 10 also.
There were a couple of bugs I experienced with iOS 13. The greater part of these things was little, for example, the console once in a while not appearing for a few seconds or an application crash to a great extent. Considering iOS 13 is another discharge, bugs aren’t astonishing and Android 10 has had a couple of issues of its own. When you read this, the iOS 13.1 update ought to have fixed a significant number of these bugs. We’ll make certain to refresh this post later to affirm the amount of a distinction it makes.
As a customary Android client, I don’t care for a large number of Apple’s confinements, however, I do discover the experience impeccably practical, quick, and simple. It simply isn’t exactly my preference. I additionally need to concede that in spite of the few bugs, iOS felt a lot of smoother. I don’t know whether this was down to programming, equipment, or a tad of both. I likewise saw that I could really tune in to music and take in excess of an image or two without Spotify smashing, and that has been a customary issue with the Pixel 3 XL.
While iOS has a walled nursery, it’s one that performs well and doesn’t disrupt everything.
How can it feel to utilize an iPhone and iOS?
A year ago, I explored the iPhone XS and utilized it for very nearly a month. From that point onward, I came back to Android and have been there from that point onward. Since I had constrained iPhone associations before the XS, it took me some time to get familiar with the ropes last time. Following a year’s nonattendance, I thought that it was simple enough to lift back up. Like last time, there are a few things I like and a few things that turn me off.
I’ll begin with the drawbacks. Remember some of them are extremely close to home issues (read: my own eccentricities) yet others will most likely apply all the more comprehensively to other people.
The capacity to move things around on the home screen. I’m somewhat marginal OCD about specific things. My Android home screen never has more than one line of symbols topping off the left side, per page. I will utilize envelopes, yet numerous screens loaded up with symbols irritates me for reasons unknown. With iOS I don’t have the choice to take into account my own madness.
Not having the option to change default applications and general hand-holding. I like having the option to change the default program, camera application, etc. You can’t do that on iOS. A portion of these limitations may add to the “reality” that iOS is progressively secure, yet not all hand-holding bodes well. For instance, in the event that you attempt to download a huge document on iOS, it will drive you to turn on Wi-Fi. My Pixel 3 XL may caution me to utilize Wi-Fi, however, I can abrogate it effectively. On the off chance that you depend on your cell association fundamentally, this can be an issue. There are a lot of different circumstances like this in iOS.
Let’s face it: If you’re the sort of individual who uses things the manner in which they are out of the container and never makes any customizations, the greater part of this won’t be an issue. It was for me, however, I’ll let it out wasn’t a major issue. I simply needed to alter my propensities a piece and figure out how to take what I was given.
With iOS I don’t have the alternative to take into account my very own craziness.
Siri, it’s you, not me. Siri has shown signs of improvement throughout the years, yet Google Assistant has outperformed it significantly. I understand not every person likes or uses Assistant, however, I discover it incredibly accommodating and appreciate having it coordinated into the OS level. This is particularly valuable for me on the grounds that my whole house uses keen lighting and other savvy gadgets. Without a doubt, I can, in any case, but Assistant on iOS, yet it’s not exactly the equivalent.
None of the things I featured above prevented me from getting a charge out of the iPhone, yet they kept me from consistently feeling really comfortable with iOS. I not even once felt that iOS was more awful than Android, it’s slightly increasingly prohibitive. I like to shading outside the lines. There were likewise two things I thought really stood apart as better on iOS.
Bluetooth matching. Bluetooth matching will, in general, be less finicky on iOS. This is particularly valid with the AirPods, which are profoundly incorporated into iOS (particularly with iOS 13 including Siri message perusing and then some). Be that as it may, even my Sony over-ears appeared to have fewer association issues and other show when combined with an iPhone.
The App Store. I need to begin by saying Google Play has developed significantly over the most recent couple of years and has turned out to be considerably more sorted out. It’s likewise much simpler to physically scan for and discover things than the App Store. All things considered, the App Store is as yet a touch better at displaying stuff I may be keen on, and the new incorporation of Apple Arcade is difficult to overlook. I truly cherished this administration and keeping in mind that I expect to look at Google Play Pass soon, it’s unmistakable Arcade has a superior determination of games (at any rate for the present).
I likewise appreciate premium applications and wouldn’t fret paying for them, and the fact of the matter is the App Store appears to have a superior determination for those of us who don’t need games or applications that require in-application buys or hit you with huge amounts of promotions.
iPhone 11 Pro Max: How does evaluate contrast with the competition?iPhone 11 Pro Max Privacy NotchiPhone 11 Pro Max Privacy Notch
- 64GB — $1,099
- 256GB — $1,249
- 512GB — $1,449
In the first place, don’t get the base model with 64GB of capacity. It’s sufficiently not in 2019, particularly in the event that you utilize a ton of applications or shoot in 4K. The remainder of the models is significantly more costly, yet you additionally have the decision of the iPhone 11 Pro which starts at $999 for 64GB and maxes at $1,349 for 512GB. My associate Eric will investigate the iPhone 11 Pro somewhat later, so stay tuned for that.
Still discover $999 too high a cost, however, need another iPhone? There’s consistently the iPhone 11. The iPhone 11 drops a portion of the Pro’s fancier highlights, however, it begins at a considerably more acceptable $699. I’d suggest you look at it, as I will be straight after this audit.
Apple will, in general, be costly, yet in 2019 it isn’t the only one. Leaders like the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus beginning at $1,099 and even the OnePlus 7 Pro starts at the equivalent $699 cost as the standard iPhone 11. Obviously, both those telephones do accompany 256GB of capacity on the base model instead of the piddly 64GB of capacity Apple offers. Worth is abstract, however, so legitimize or discredit the sticker price as your wallet permits.
Isolating my affections for the OS, what is my opinion about the Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max?
The iPhone isn’t for me, yet that is on the grounds that iOS isn’t for me. When you wind up easily coordinated into an administration and application environment, the change will require penance and bargain. It’s a similar explanation most iOS clients don’t jump over to Android. Do I feel Android is unrivaled? Once more, no. It’s essentially extraordinary and a sort of various that works splendidly fine for me.
The iPhone 11 Pro Max is a remarkable telephone, regardless of whether it offers little to influence Android fans.
Looking past my very own OS inclinations, the iPhone 11 Pro Max is an excellent telephone. The camera is most likely the best out there, at any rate for the time being. It feels strong and tough, something I like from a telephone. I don’t love the indent or the structure of the camera, yet I don’t really adore the plan of my Pixel 3 XL either.
On the off chance that you as of now use iOS, the iPhone 11 Pro Max is an easy decision. Android clients longing for a change may likewise need to think about it. For those content with Android, in any case, there’s actually nothing here to influence you to Apple.
