iPhone 11 Pro Max is the most powerful phone Apple has ever created with the best technology and design to rival with it’s biggest contenders, including Samsung, Google, and Huawei. This is the closest to the perfect smartphone at least for now with the perfect combo of triple AI camera, a powerful 3969mAh battery, and the fastest phone processor you can get in A13 chip. Bright OLED display and dedicated night mode camera just outshines many other phones in the market.
Design and Display
The design of iPhone 11 Pro Max is pretty much familiar to its predecessor, iPhone X and iPhone XS, but its new matte glass back, which is less prone to smudges is really the spotlight and feels nice in hand. Though the massive screen won’t be handy to all, the 6.5 inches Super Retina XDR OLED display offers a brilliant cinematic experience. Its display, which is protected by the scratch-resistant glass with an oleophobic coating is one of the main selling points for this high-end smartphone. It has a screen resolution of 1242 x 2688 pixels and screen to body ratio of 83.7%.
One of the key upgrades here is, it has the ability to play Dolby Vision content. Though it doesn’t sound like a big upgrade from the previous HDR10, you will get more immersive experience while watching movies. The iPhone has a maximum brightness of 800 nits, but while playing Dolby Vision film it is more impressive with the maximum brightness that can go up to 1200 nits.
Most of the design of this smartphone is pretty similar to the iPhones in the last few years. It has the curved stainless steel on the sides and the bottom houses the two speaker grilles and the lightning connector. It is more manageable in the hand with the volume rockers and the power button situated a bit lower in comparison to the previous Max and Pro models. It comes in really four attractive colors, space grey, midnight green, matte gold, and matte silver. Go and drop your phone in the pool, because it is water-resistant.

iPhone 11 Pro Max clearly feels more refined and upgraded with the latest i0S 13 onboard, which is upgradable to 13.6.1. In addition to that, the A13 Bionic chipset has a four-core GPU which is 20% faster and up to 40% more power efficient for graphics tasks. 3D games including Asphalt 9: Legends, Fortnite, can be played with complete ease.
The minimum storage variant is 64GB, very low for Apple’s standard and other variants are with 256GB and 512GB of internal storage. There are major price differences in different storage options. In overall, iPhone 11 Prox Max is the most powerful phone from Apple and also one of the powerful smartphones in the market. Even though some may want to wait for Apple to launch a 5G-capable iPhone 12, there are very few reasons to skip this phone if you want the best flagship phone right now.
iPhone 11 Pro Max’s triple camera in the rear all with 12MP lenses setup has a lot to offer to you. In terms of hardware, the newest addition is the ultra-wide-angle lens in the rear making it a triple camera phone. In low-light scenarios, the 2x telephoto lens, which has got a faster f/2.0 aperture to absorb more light, is just perfect, but the ultra-wide-angle sensor is the star attraction.
Though previous editions of iPhone struggled to take true photos in the gloom, taking a march forward in competition with other flagship smartphones, iPhone 11 Pro Max has done really well with the night mode. Now, it can almost turn the night to the day and if you have the more steady hand or using the tripod, get ready to discover the details in the night-mode shots that you couldn’t notice with your eyes. The level of brightness and sharpness has to be seen to be believed.
The depth sensor is also impressive, being able to give more sharp edges in the portrait mode. But, make sure to use all the features carefully in the right way before you expect the best results. The slowness while switching between the mode is where it lags and is not negligible.
iPhone has done a lot of improvements to its camera. The video recording of both front and back camera has been upgraded to 4k with 60 frames per second. Though 4k is not new anymore, the iPhone promises you the best details with smoothness. iPhone 11 Pro Max lets you record slow-motion videos with the selfie camera at up to 120fps, a special feature Apple calls “slofies.”
Apple’s deep software paired with the physical setup helps make the zooming between the three cameras feel so smooth. So, unlike other Android phones, which have their camera setup in a horizontal or vertical lineup, Apple has made such arrangement for zooming straight out from the center. You don’t need to physically shift the phone to the left or the right to compose a shot. Its camera work has been compared to Google’s Pixel 3 XL, Samsung Note 10 Plus, Huawei P30 Pro and OnePlus 7 Pro.
Everything has its cons. Apart from all the interesting features, the upgraded camera setup has to offer, the camera bump in the rear feels a bit sharp making it a bit uncomfortable in your hand. However, as always iPhone provides images with great detail, good dynamic range, and fantastic color reproduction.
Apple promised that the battery of iPhone 11 Pro Max offers at least 5 hours more endurance than the iPhone X series. The fast charger that comes in the box loads the in-built 3969 mAh battery within 1 and a half hours. The bigger battery has not affected the thickness of the device. 18W wired charging is excellent on this phone but still remains behind in the competition of a wireless charger.
