So here it is here’s. My first review of 2021 and we’re gon na start with the iphone 11.. Now you might be wondering why the iphone 11, when you already have the iphone 12 well that’s, because now this phone has got a massive price cut and you can buy this phone for anywhere between 50 to 55, 000 rupees and sometimes even lesser. If you have those crazy amazon and flip card deals, i feel the iphone 11 is still one of the best value for money, iphone that you can buy, whether you’re in india or us or in any other country, and there are a lot of reasons to like This phone, so today, i’m gon na tell you why you should consider the iphone 11. If you’re planning to buy an iphone in india, so let’s get started. If you’re new to the channel, then please subscribe press the bell icon. I know i’m not uploading regularly on this channel, but i guarantee you that every time i make a new video it’s gon na be of high quality. So the first and the major reason to like the iphone 11 is the cameras. Now this phone gets a 12 megapixel main sensor and a 12 megapixel ultra wide sensor, and if you talk about the image quality it’s, just brilliant now, the best part about the iphone is that you could give this phone to any layman. And they can just you know, point the camera at something and take a really good picture.
Eight to nine out of ten times that’s the simplicity of the iphone’s camera app it’s, very easy to use. Plus you know in an android phone, you might have to go to the night sight mode or the night mode. Nothing like that on the iphone. If you’re gon na shoot in a low light scenario, the night mode is automatically gon na come on and you literally don’t have to change a single setting, it’s very easy to use and that’s. What makes apart from that? If i actually talk about the image quality, the iphone 11, even after one and half year, performs brilliantly when it comes to photos. The photos from the iphone 11 have natural, colors, no artificial, boosting no over saturation. Nothing like that. It’S got a really nice natural color output, and, apart from that, the detailing is also really good on this phone plus apple introduced the night mode with the iphone 11, and it still performs really really well, of course, if you compare it to the iphone 12, the Iphone 12 is definitely better, but the difference is not that great in daylight and indoor lighting conditions both of these phones perform. Similarly, in low light, the iphone 12 gets slightly better, plus the major advantage that the 12 has is the fact that now you get night mode on the ultra wide lens, as well as on the front facing camera. So these things push the iphone 12 further, but i would say that you get 90 of iphone 12’s camera in the iphone 11 plus.
The best part about the iphone 11 is the video. I have taken a lot of videos with my iphones, be it the iphone sc, the iphone 11 and the iphone 12 and iphones are one of the best cameras on any smartphone when it comes to video. The video quality is great. The dynamic range is really really good. I filmed a complete vlog on an iphone se. When i was collecting my iphone 12., you can check that out in the description below and the video quality was brilliant plus. The stabilization, like i said, the dynamic range plus the audio quality from the built in microphones is amazing. So if you’re a content creator, if you’re a vlogger and you shoot videos on a day to day basis, it’s great to have the iphone, because sometimes you cannot take your camera everywhere, and this thing is right here in your pocket. You can shoot 4k 60 fps from the back from the front camera. The ultraviolet lens is also really really nice, so this is a really nice video camera to have in your pocket. Another best part of using an iphone is that iphones don’t age that quickly the iphone 11, for instance, is one and a half years old and for some reason it still doesn’t feel outdated. It doesn’t feel old and i cannot say the same about every android phone out there. If you talk about the spec sheet of the iphone 11 we’ve got the apple a13 processor we’ve got four gigs of ram and we’ve got a 310 milliamp hours of battery.
Now, if you show these specifications to any android user out there, they’re gon na laugh at the phone, but in reality this iphone is neck to neck, with almost all of the new flagships out there. If i talk about the day to day performance, in spite of having four gigs of ram, the memory management is brilliant on this phone. If you talk about the app opening speeds, the multitasking, the overall smoothness of the user interface, everything is just brilliant and at any point you don’t feel that the phone is bogged down or the phone is slow. And even when i talk about gaming, i don’t really need to say that much because you know iphones are the best at gaming that’s, exactly the reason why every professional gamer games on an iphone you can play games like pubg on hdr plus extreme settings at a Constant 60 fps, and i cannot say that about snapdragon 855 plus phones, which came at the same time with the iphone 11. so for gaming for day to day usage. The performance of this phone, in spite of having such low ram and low battery, is brilliant battery life also is great it’s one of the best battery life iphones. Apart from the iphone 12 pro max, because here i was easily able to get six to seven hours of screen on time on a single charge, so one day is very easy to get on an iphone. The only issue is the charger.
You know they are trying to save the environment now. So if you buy the newer iphone 11s, they will not come with a charger inside the box, so you will have to invest in a good charger. Even the older iphone 11 units, like the one that i got on the launch day, it came with a 5 watt charger, so it sucks anyways and i’ve never really used it. So yeah just get a charger for yourself. Otherwise, you will be that guy, whose phone takes more time to charge than it takes the battery to drain so don’t be that guy buy a good charger. I’Ll drop some links in the description box, but the point that i’m trying to make here is that the reason people buy iphones even after two to three years of their launch is ios. We’Ve already spoken about. The optimization then comes the privacy iphones, you know are one of the most secure smartphones. The privacy is great apple, takes it seriously. There is nothing fishy in ios, so far, so that’s great plus the updates. You know that every iphone that gets launched gets easily five to six years of updates. So the same thing is true about the iphone 11.. This one came in 2019, so i’m very sure, you’re gon na get regular updates till 2024 or 2025. So if we talk about the longetivity and the long term usage, the iphones fare well because apple regularly updates their iphone it’s, not like android, where, after two to three years, the manufacturer forgets you you forget the updates and you have to dump and buy a new Phone and, of course, the best thing about ios is the apple ecosystem.
So if you’re someone who has a lot of apple devices, for example, i have the iphone 11, i have my iphone 12. I have the m1 macbook that i’m currently using. I also have a mac pc so because of that the overall ios ecosystem is something that really reels you in. For example, if i get a call on my iphone 12, my mac will start ringing. My pc will start ringing. My iphone 11 will start ringing and i can literally pick up the phone from any of these devices and it’s such a great, convenient feature, plus. Apart from that, you can just copy one thing on your iphone and paste it on your mac and everything just syncs with icloud and it’s, so cohesive you’ve got airdrop, which is one of the most most used feature of mine, and you know the whole ecosystem. The way it works is brilliant, so if you’ve got a lot of apple devices in your system, then it makes complete sense to get an iphone so it’s all the whole experience that makes you want to get an iphone, but everything’s not great here, not everything’s rosy. This is not the dream phone that everyone’s waiting for, and the major downside of the iphone 11 is the display. Now this phone right now sells for 50 to 55, 000 rupees and apple gives you an lcd display on this phone, which is not even full hd. Now i don’t have a problem with the lcd thing.
There are good lcd panels out there, but clearly, when you put this phone against the iphone 12 or the oneplus 8, the oneplus 8t, or even some of the cheaper samsung phones with an amoled display. The display on the iphone 11 doesn’t feel that great now don’t get me wrong. It’S, not a deal breaker. In fact, when i switched from the iphone 11 to the iphone 12, this phone’s got a full hd plus oled display, and in spite of that, i didn’t feel the difference to be that huge. For me, it was a good thing i was like yeah. The display is nice, it’s, a it’s better, but it was not a night and day change for me so for ninety percent of the users they’re going to be happy with the display, but when you put it against the amoled displays out there. You’Ll definitely feel that the display of this phone is not the best, but still the lcd panel on its own does a pretty good job. Normally, when people think about lcd, they think about those 14, 15, 000 rupees, cheap phones, but that cheap lcd and this lcd is night and day different. The black levels on this lcd is quite good, it’s, a flagship display, so the colors, the viewing angles, are great. You’Ve also got support for hdr and dolby vision, so, overall, the display quality is good, it’s, just that it’s, not the best in the segment it’s a downside, but it’s not a deal breaker for the iphone 11.
. What could be a deal? Breaker, though, is the lack of 5g support. Now 2021 has been the year of 5g. Manufacturers are shoving, 5g phones down your throat, and you don’t want your friend who’s using a meter and a real me: x7 mock you for buying a 50 000 rupee phone, and then you don’t have 5g on it, so that’s a major deciding factor. If you ask me, i am 50 50 on the whole 5g scenario. We might get 5g in early 2022, but that’s only gon na be limited to cities like mumbai, delhi, chennai, calcutta bangalore. I guess so in that case not having 5g is not a deal. Breaker, plus, even if you have a 4g phone and 5g comes along it’s, not like this phone is going to be obsolete. You can still use this phone. You’Ll still get good download speeds, because the major difference between 4g and 5g are the download speeds and let’s face it, even with 4g being in india for last 3 to 4 years, we still get horrendous 4g speeds in majority of the areas. So i don’t have a lot of hope with 5g either and plus 5g is not even that widespread in countries like us, uk dubai, which are like a lot more developed. So i don’t see it happening or being mainstream in india anytime soon. So i don’t think the lack of 5g is a deal breaker, but i just want to warn you, because people who buy iphones normally use it for three to four years, and the last con that i have, which is sort of nitpicking with the iphone 11 is Face id don’t get me wrong: face id works great, it detects faces even in the darkest scenarios very well, but when this phone was announced, there was no such thing as kobit 19.
. Now there is, and because of that, we’re supposed to wear masks outside and the phone is unable to recognize my face and it’s very annoying to pull the mask down, get my face registered and get the phone to unlock so yeah. I always have to enter my pin when i’m in a public place and that gets quite annoying because every other android phone out there has a physical fingerprint sensor. So i hate this thing about the iphone i wish they had face id and touch id. That would have been a perfect combo but never mind. These are the cons that i had with the iphone 11. Apart from that, if i talk about the build quality, you’ve got a glass back very good you’ve got a metal frame. You’Ve got gorilla glass, 6 on the front, but don’t. Let that fool. You please get a screen protector for your phone, because otherwise your display is going to be scratched within a couple of hours. I’Ll drop some good screen protectors from my good friends over at glazing.com. You can buy those. These are 2.5 d, curved glasses for the iphone they’re specifically made for the curvature of the iphone plus they’ve got some really cool cases as well for the iphone 11. So do check them out. You can use the promo code gizmo as well. For a 10 discount call quality, wi fi reception network, you know everything was great on this phone. You can use two sim cards here, but one of it has to be any sim and the other one will be.
A physical, sim. You’Ve got stereo speakers here. Once again, very loud great quality and as always being an iphone, this phone doesn’t have a headphone jack. So do get yourself a pair of airpods or something like the real me buds, or something like that. But overall i feel iphone. 11 is still one of the great value for money iphones, because if you consider the iphone 12 it’s available, for i think 82 000 right now and the iphone 11 is around 55 000 and for that difference of around 25 000 rupees. I don’t think the pros. Are that worth it? If you want to get the latest and the greatest iphone then sure go buy the iphone 12, but if you’re looking for a more value for money proposition, the iphone 11 is great. Not only are you saving 25 000 rupees you’re, almost getting 90 of the camera performance in day to day usage. Both of these phones are same. The battery life is also the same. The only advantage that the iphone 12 has is the better display and the support of 5g. So if you can let go with those, you can save a good chunk of money and you can get the iphone 11. and if you are open to android alternatives, you can also consider the oneplus 8t oneplus 8 pro and even the upcoming oneplus 9. But the thing with oneplus phones is that you always miss out on the camera performance.
That is something you won’t get uh on the oneplus 8t or the oneplus 8 pro and let’s see if the oneplus 9 series changes that, but some people always want an iphone. For example, if you want to use clubhouse, you need iphone and a lot of people who are in the business circle or they are into social media or something like that. They always prefer iphones, because social media apps, like instagram snapchat, are always optimized more on the iphone than on the android counterparts, so yeah some people only want an iphone, and for that i think the iphone 11 is the best value for money, iphone that you can Buy right now in india that’s all i have to say about this phone if you guys have any more content to add, please let me know in the comments, if you guys have any questions, you can ask them too, and if you like this video, then please Hit the like button, if you did not like it, press the dislike button twice and if you’re new here you know what to do subscribe to the channel press, the bell, icon and i’m gon na be bringing a lot more quality content soon.
