iPhone 11 and 11 Pro: Should you upgrade?

  • Published on Sep 12, 2019
  • We take a look at the specs for the brand new iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, comparing them to last year's iPhone XS and XS Max. Or maybe the iPhone 11, the newer version of the iPhone XR, is the one to get?

    I’m happily living with my 7plus and don’t need anything else. There are not huge differences from the 7s to the 11. In the good old days people used to replace things when they broke

    I want to see the videos be taken at night! That’s my issue of course pics and videos are beautiful in the sunlight! What about at night? The cameras still suck! At least on my xs it does

    A 4K resolution photo or video will eat up the 64 GB iPhone memory, which does not make sense. Micro SD cards are in the terabyte class now.

    I got an iPhone 7 128 GB with 92% battery health and about 3 years old. I wanna upgrade though because I want better battery life and a bigger screen. Also my phone heats up so fast for some reason. Not sure what to do.

    I have the original 6plus when it first came out! I've drop it so many times and now it's showing signs like an old person. I ordered the pro max and I cannot wait.

    Well i was thinkint to upgrade from iPhone X to iPhone 11 Pro Max. Im waiting for the iPhone 12 Pro Max or whatever version. I REALLY want the 6.5“ screen, thats bc i was do temted. From a realistic perspective though... Not that much has chainged..
    Idk I‘ll see, but i don’t think i can hold back on the iPhone 12 when it comes out...

    If you have a 7 or lower then I'd say yes. Anything from 8 and above? Nope. Why? €1500 price tag doesn't warrant an upgrade for what you get. It's just a minor XS/max upgrade with an extra lens.
    Next year should be presumably a lot more exciting. At least I hope.
    Where's the 20-40mp camera sensors? 10x optical zoom? Brand new screen? Not just an increase in brightness?
    Where's the in screen fingerprint sensor? No more 3D touch? Really? Same phone from last year with an extra lens. That warrants your 1000+€ if you're considering to upgrade from an xs
    I'm willing to pay the price if I'm getting the tech for it in return. It probably cost apple a dime for this minor upgrade and they are charging full price as usual and I phone's have become very expensive.
    Great phones! Love my XS Max, last one I had before this was the 6S max and never felt like upgrading as well. Apple needs to move a little quicker!!!

    Hi, I am confused about which iPhone should I buy according to the price. Currently, the price of iPhone XR 128GB is $649 meanwhile the price of iPhone 11 128GB is $749. But, the thing is that I have a very limited budget. So, the actual question is that "Should I compromise with the storage capacity of an iPhone in order to buy the latest iPhone 11 64GB instead of iPhone XR 128GB?” because the price difference margin between 128GB iPhone XR and 64GB iPhone XR is much lesser than the price difference between 128GB iPhone XR and 128GB iPhone 11. I would need to pay $100 more in order to buy iPhone 11 128GB and if I buy the iPhone 11 64GB, I would need to pay $50 more to buy the iPhone 11 64GB. Also, my second question is that is it right that the iPhone with 64GB is too less storage for a person who would use the iPhone for around 4 - 5 years?

      Check your carrier for pre-order deals. On Verizon, the difference between the iPhone 11 64GB and 128GB was $2/month for the 24 month contract. Probably worth the $48 to double your ram which is what I did. But if your budget is limited, the Xr is going to be a great option. I went with the 11 since they offered $100 on the trade-in of my iPhone 7.

    I have a XS Max 512gb and am getting the 11 Pro Max 512gb. I will pay out my contract with the sale of the XS Max so not really costing me anything to upgrade.

    Unbelievable, still sugar coating iPhone 11. Didn't you hear the news, very few ordered iPhones nowadays. Yes, maybe last year but this year is the end of Apple. Simply Apple failed to deliver the best flagship phone. They are even out of the category to be more precise. NO all-display (notch still exactly the same), NO finger print in-display reader, NO reverse charging. These are the few flagship features or requirements. There's no more room for improvement on their tech and continue to rip-off apple fans/subscribers. iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 pro max price at £729 and £1,148 price respectively and both at 64GB base storage. What 64GB? Worst camera at the back looks like 3 electric stove burners. Camera bump on top of a bump. Hideous looking phone, I'm switching to Androids with the Note 10+ listed on the top. I predicted and expected this already, British Apple Chief Designer - Jony Ive is gone already early this year. The person behind the success of previous iPhones and iPads.

    Re the Max Pro, if you order one online, sight unseen, you will wish you hadn't. The 3-cam square hump sticks out, then the 3 lenses stick out even more! It's ugly when in hand.

    Debating on upgrading to iPhone XR, iPhone 11 or sticking with my iPhone 7. The 7 getting kicked off the lineup is making me nervous as far as iOS support and my battery is at 75% capacity, so I’m thinking I should upgrade but at the same time I’m having no other issues with my phone. It is 3 years old though. Maybe I could get some trade in credit for it but it does have some small dents in the edges.

    If you want it you want it if you don’t you don’t you never know till you try is my experience with iPhones but I’ve only had 4s 5s 6s+ and this one iPhone X at the end of the day it’s are choice to make but they mess each one up so near the end it’s more tempting to get the next one depends if you get to the end quick of you next phone then it might be easier to part from the iPhone quicker like I get stuck with it because of the cloud the user friendly but since it’s been through the Mac book not sure the camera as great as it once was

    Hmm I got a i phone x end of May 2018 don’t remember much wrong with it to begin with accept people moaning about it be asked what does this one do lose one pair of headphones battery 🔋 life an issue a bit to begin with but more so now Freezing issues before festival this year and not going on moments when I want to abandon the iPhone think I need one with more GBs either way I ended up needing someone’s MacBook to get it going again and lost photos on mine unless there on the cloud as didn’t delete them myself so I guess this is sort of tempting for me whether I need it or not etc lol

    To me it’s not worth upgrading and their Discontinuing the iPhone XS Max, that’s like discontinuing a rare car 🚗 ahead of its time iPhone XS Max will be underestimated watch and see and yes The phone pro max might be a little better with miner upgrades but for me it’s not worth the upgrade from my iPhone XS Max at the moment and 3D Touch is also underestimated because it doesn’t just work in apps it also very useful when looking up stuff online

    Every 3 years iPhone designs get a refresh this is the 3rd year which means next year the iPhone will redesign next year. I suggest you wait if you are changing from an older iPhone.
