Review: iPhone 11, 11Pro, 11Pro Max. Which Is Best?

Last year the iPhone Xs cost 250 dollars more than the iPhone Xr, and for a lot of people, the extra features just didn't justify the price difference. This year the iPhone 11 is actually $50  cheaper than the Xr was, it starts at $699 while the iPhone 11 pro cost the same as the Xs starting at $999.

So now there is a $300 price difference, is it worth it? Well to answer that we need to know what you get for all that money, what exactly are the differences between the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11Pro. Let's break it down first by going over the things that are the same between the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro.


They both have the new A13 Bionic processor. 
Both start at 64 gigabytes of storage.
They have the same major Wireless features like Bluetooth 5, Wi-Fi6, ultra-wideband, and NFC.
Last year the iPhone XR didn't have 3D Touch, and the iPhone Xs did, but this year, none of the new iPhones have 3D touch, so that's the same. 
When it comes to cameras they have the same improved front-facing true depth module, so you can use face ID at a wider angle and take 12-megapixel selfies with a wider field of view, 4k video, and slow-motion selfie videos (Apple wants to call them slofies).
On the back, both phones have a 12-megapixel F1.8 wide-angle camera and a new 12-megapixel F2.4 ultra-wide-angle camera with a 120-degree field of view. The iPhone 11 pro has a third camera on the back a 12megapixel F2.0 telephoto lens that lets in 40% more light than the telephoto lens on the iPhone Xs.

Another big difference is the available sizes and colors, the iPhone 11 comes in one size with a 6.1-inch display, and it comes in six colors (black, green, yellow, purple, white, and red) which is available right from day one. The iPhone 11 pro comes in two sizes a smaller one at 5.8-inches and the iPhone 11Pro Max at 6.5-inches, it comes in four colors (gold, space grey, silver, and midnight green). 
Besides that third telephoto camera and the sizes, the display is probably the most apparent difference between the two because the iPhone 11 has an LCD that is essentially the same as the one on last year's iPhone Xr, the resolution is 326 pixels per inch and it has a 1401 contrast ratio and a max brightness of 625nits. The iPhone 11Pro has an OLED display that supports high dynamic range, its resolution is higher (458 pixels per inch) just like last year's iPhone Xs, but it has an improved contrast ratio of 2 million to 1 and a max brightness of 800nits that cranks all the way up to 1200nits with HDR content. 

There are also a bunch of relatively small differences between the 11 and 11Pro, the iPhone 11 has a cellular radio with 2x2 MIMO while the 11 Pro has 4x4 MIMO, so you might get a little bit better connection with the 11Pro.
The 11 Pro has slightly better waterproofing it can stay up to 30 minutes at a depth of 4 meters while the 11 can do 30 minutes at a depth of 2 meters.
The 11 Pro comes with an 18Watt USB-C power adapter in the box (yeahhhh finally๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿฅ‚), the iPhone 11 will work with that charger if you buy it separately, but in the box, you will get that same old sad 5Watt power adapter.
Both models have a longer battery life than last year's iPhones the iPhone 11 should last about an hour longer than the iPhone 10. The iPhone 11Pro will go about an hour more than the iPhone 11, while the 11Pro Max has an additional hour or so.

Although the 11 and the 11Pro both start at 64 gigs of storage the 11 has upgrades for 128 or 256 gigabytes while the 11Pro has upgrades for 256 or 512 gigabytes.
The 11 and 11Pro had this same major performance characteristics and features, what you are really paying so much more for is that OLED/HDR display, rear telephoto camera, different size, color, and storage options.
Just as the iPhone Xr was a lot more popular than the Xs, I expect the iPhone 11 will be a lot more popular than the iPhone 11Pro.

Trybeweb's Opinion: Those differences in specs are beautiful but for not worth the $300 - $400 difference in price and I will stick to the iPhone 11.

Let us know in the comment session which of the iPhone 11 variant you would instead buy after reading this extensive breakdown.

How To Fix Fast Charging Issues On Smartphones.

Slow charging can be very annoying especially when you need your phone full before heading out in a limited space of time.

Multiple Phones Charging

Many smartphone manufacturers have added to their devices the fast charging feature that allows them to charge at nearly 5 times the normal speed.

Note that the flash charge is a hardware feature that can not be downloaded from the internet or from the app store.

Top African brands like Tecno and Infinix boasted about their fast charging as it became only the most after features when purchasing a mobile device.
Phones like the Infinix Hot5, note5, note4 are thought to go from 0 percent to 20 percent in 5 minutes under good charging condition via X-Charge which is fast charging Infinix version.

Tecno brands such as Cammon X, Phantom 8, and Cx air also have the Tecno flash charging feature that gives them the edge when charging over other smartphones.

Apart from charging your device at an incredible speed, the fast charging feature also helps maintain battery life and prevents battery overheating while charging.

My Phone Doesn't Support Flash Charging. What Do I do?

Telephones that do not support the flash charging feature are out of the trend and may be extinguished from the smartphone market over time.

Some developers of the Android app have released applications claiming to be able to quickly charge just any phone. Fast charging is a hardware and by software application can be installed in a device.

If your device does not support quick charging, you can use the methods below to help increase charging speed:

  • Close all app while charging your phone.
  • Switch off data and wifi connection.
  • Put your phone in airplane mode.
  • Reduce backlight.
  • Make sure you use the company recommended charger
  • Avoid faulty USB cables.
  • Switch off the phone.

My Phone Once Supports Fast Charge But Stopped.

Some users complained about their device being unable to charge quickly after a while. If your smartphone stops charging quickly, it may be due to some minor problems and today we're going to give some tips on how to fix these problems.

  • First, make sure you use the recommended charger and cable, as not all phones charge quickly, not all chargers are able to charge quickly, so use the original charger that came with your device or visit your mobile support store to purchase a new one. Oraimo chargers also promote rapid charging, and if you don't have access to the factory approved charger, it's a good replacement. Nigerian can get high speed Oraimo charger for the rate of (N2,000) in top smartphone retail outlets.
Red Charging Cables

  • Verify that the charger is entirely inserted in, earlier this afternoon the very same situation happened to me. When I loaded my Infinix note5 I discovered it wasn't flash charging and I decided to give it some time, 15 minutes later and it wasn't flash charging then I noticed that the port between the USB Dongle and the charger head wasn't completely connected, so I turned off the socket and pushed the charger in and then turned it back on and it began X-charging automatically.
  • Please ensure sufficient electric power is supplied by the electrical outlet. Yeah, some devices require some output power to charge quicker so make sure your device is connected to an outlet that provides adequate electrical juice and note that plugging your phone into a computer will never charge it rapidly. Low electrical power generators can also stop your phone from charging  quickly at times.
  • Bad battery is also a determinant so make absolutely sure your battery is in excellent health and if it isn't, it's time to try a new battery and only go to the original one as counterfeit batteries don't charge quickly or may stop after a few days.
  • The charging port of your phone (charging points) also helps determine the rate your phone charges at. Always check your ports and remove dirt and other residues. If you observe that your charging port is malformed, take it for a fix to a repairman and your device should return to fast charging.
Samsung Device

  • Viruses on your mobile phone during software upgrades can also prevent your phone from charging easily. Last year when I was using the infinix Note 4pro, it ceased flash charging all of a sudden and I tried several different ways like obtaining a new charger, trying a friends charger but all in vain so I gave up hope until I came across an article in their official chat forum with lots of users complaining about the same issues after initializing the company's released software upgrade. If you are in such a scenario, it is suggested that you wait until a new fix update is released or take your device to its customer support and service center for downgrade.

Always make sure you use the approved charger to power your devices as it helps maintain a healing battery and also provides enough juice for your phone to keep it going all day long. Turn off the electricity from the power supply and unplug your chargers to prevent the charger from being heated.
