Comparing Apple’s iPhone 11 to last year’s iPhone XR for speed, battery life, camera tech, software, specs and other features. What’s new in the iPhone 11 and is it worth the extra £100 versus last year’s XR?
The main differences are concentrated in the camera hardware and software, and the performance of these smartphones. In the new 2019 model you’ll find a dual lens rear shooter, complete with a new Ultra-Wide Angle 12MP snapper – plus Apple’s new night mode for low light photography. The iPhone 11 also upgrades the selfie cam versus the XR, with 4K home movie abilities on offer.
Likewise, the latest iPhone now has Apple’s A13 chipset and 4GB RAM for speedier everyday performance. That said, despite the gap in AnTuTu benchmarking scores, last year’s mobile is still more than fine for PubG and other games.
The battery tech has been slightly improved this year, with a higher capacity cell and 18W charging vs 15W. However, that only makes for a slight increase in battery life.
