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.

COMPARISON BETWEEN IPHONE 11 AND 11PRO

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 finallyπŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸ₯‚), 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.

Smartphones: Expectations Versus Reality

Having a having a new smartphone yeah what an awesome feeling.


The feeling of having a new smartphone usually satisfying and it doesn't matter if it's new or old we just want to get our hands on another smartphone.

Over the years since the creation of the first smartphone humans are always long for something better or should I say more advance from smartphones. we have seen advancement like touchscreen, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and even NFC.

Speaking from personal experience, my first smartphone was a blackberry and immediately I got it I couldn't wait to explore all features of my cool new device with great editing features like picmix and running multiple apps at the same time.

Which time I became bored with the device I needed something more, then came the tecno devices and infinix devices.

For most humans the expectation of getting a new smartphone from Popular makers like Samsung, Apple, Lenovo, and LG comes with hopes for a new advanced feature being added to the device but disappointingly most of these smartphone companies rarely give out new update in devices but recycle old features in new devices and changing model names.

A good example is the infinix note 5 which is quite similar to the previously made infinix note 4 except except for the improvement of the camera where the note 5 has a 16 megapixel selfie camera wild note 4 pro has a is megapixel selfie camera. This can be really disappointing especially for a strong hearted fan of the Infinix Brand who would be expecting something better or bigger coming from the note 5.

Recycling old features in new model devices has become a strategy for phone manufacturers to keep up with the smartphone market and making sales while consumers obliviously buy same product but different model names.

This is also a good strategy to keep consumers confused about what brand to go after due to different brands having smartphones with similar feature being released at the same time.


While sorting for a Smartphone,most users go after Camera Quality, Battery Life, RAM & ROM, and smartphone makers have used that as a major factor in production of new devices and making a follow up of such device with a slightly different specification. A good exam is the Apple IPhone X and Xs max which comes at different price but have similar specs but the iPhone Xs max featuring a 4gb RAM whereas the IPhone X has 3gb RAM and the Xs Max having greater battery capacity.

Brands like Infinix comes with similar strategy but they make theirs more confusing. For example the Infinix note 5 has a battery capacity of 4500mAh and the Note 5 stylus which is claimed to be "better" has a battery of 4000mAh and users who are wary of battery life would definitely go for the note 5 which is also cheaper in price. But the note 5 stylus supports Touch Pen feature (X-Pen) and 4gb Ram storage beating the normal note 5 which does not supports the Touch Pen and has 3gb of RAM.

HOW TO BROWSE AND DOWNLOAD UNLIMITEDLY WITH GOOGLE FREE WIFI

Free Wi-Fi!!! Finding one in A country like Nigeria is harder than winning a lottery jackpot, also Telecom & Data providers are getting strict with data by increasing the price for data and also blocking all loopholes for free browsing like Hammer VPN and Gidimo Unlimited Browsing.


In this Article, I will be discussing how to surf the web and download files without restriction using the Google free Wi-Fi Station.

Surprisingly, Nigeria is the first Country in Africa and the fifth country in the world to get Google Wi-Fi Station service. Google launched their Free Wi-Fi Service (Google Wi-Fi Station) recently in Nigeria and since it started Nigerians have been enjoying its benefits by downloading and using the internet at a high-speed rate for free.

For this Wi-Fi service to work, Google partners with numerous local technology Institute to ensure the provision of the needed software and hardware to actualize the “Free Wi-Fi for all”. Some of these partners are Network providers, System Integrators, Large scale organizations, Fibre providers (21st Century Technology).

HOW TO LOCATE GOOGLE WI-FI STATION

Google Wi-Fi would be set up in places that attract large crowds daily like Markets, Airports, Sit-out Parks, Transport Parks (Bus & Railway), Public Schools / Universities, Large Malls etc.


In Nigeria, this Free Service is projected for 200 locations in 6 Cities (Lagos, Abuja, Port-Harcourt, Kaduna, Ibadan, and Enugu) these Cities were chosen due to their popularity and Google might decide to increase the list of Cities in the Nearest future.

HOW TO CONNECT TO THE WIFI

Once You find the Wi-Fi, tap connect and your device will automatically connect to the Wi-Fi without prompting for a password. 
After connecting, you won't be able to browse with it until you Sign-In with a Valid Phone number.

For Android users, after connecting, open your notification panel and you will see a notification asking you to sign into the network. 
Click on the notification and it will direct you to the sign-in portal where you will see the Partner’s name and Google’s Logo.
Click on continue and then put your mobile number (Make sure the sim card is Switched on because a code would be sent to the number to confirm that you are the owner of the Sim, Copy the code and type it in the space provided in the portal and that’s all you are connected.

For iPhone Users, connect the wifi and you will be automatically redirected to the sign-in portal. 
Follow the same procedure posted for Android users and you will be connected to the internet.

Laptop and Computer users, connect to the Wi-Fi and a pop-up notification would come up asking you to open your browser and finish the connection. 
Click on the notification and your default internet browser will open up and redirect you to the login page. 
Follow the same procedure posted for Android users and you will be connected to the internet.


Note: When connected to A device, the device won’t need phone number verification for three days (3) and after that, you will be asked to verify before using. A number can be used to register only 3 devices at a time (3 devices can simultaneously use 1 sim verification for 3 days).

The Wi-Fi comes in two types:
  • Fast Mode
  • Basic Mode

FAST MODE WI-FI

Connecting to the Wi-Fi would automatically put the device in Fast Mode Wi-Fi and it allows users to surf and download at an amazing speed of 30Mb/Sec on all platforms (Android, iOS, Windows).
The only downside of this Fast Mode is that users are allowed to use its fast speed for 30 minutes which after that, you will be taken to the Basic Mode.

BASIC MODE WI-FI

Unlike the time-cap placed on the Fast Mode, when you are connected to the Basic Mode the download and surfing speed of the Wi-Fi will reduce drastically but the good side of this is that you will be allowed to use the Wi-Fi for an unlimited time, meaning that you would continue to browse and download for as long as you want.

Note: Trybeweb will give you a secret on how to remove the time-cap on Fast Mode and download Unlimitedly at a fast speed (continue reading).


BENEFITS OF GOOGLE WI-FI STATION
  • It is free for everyone.
  • It is secure and has no security breach, malware or information theft.
  • It is fast and unlimited.
  • Access all website without restriction.

HOW TO REMOVE TIME-CAP ON FAST-MODE

After exhausting your 30 minutes fast mode, you will notice that the download and surfing are now slow. This can be frustrating for people like Me who download large files like the 1080p version of Game of Thrones which is around 2.5Gb per episode.

This tweak was discovered by Trybeweb and its working 100% for Android and PC users.

How it works: Immediately You login into the Wi-Fi, the 30 minutes time limit is set and your device is registered and identified by its MAC address (Media Access Control) and this prevents you from using the fast mode again even if you switch off your device and log in again you will still be on slow mode till the next day. 
So, we will be bypassing it by changing our MAC Address, so the Wi-Fi will think it is a new Device trying to connect and you will get your Fast Mode. (Humans are always smarter πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰).

ANDROID USERS:

First Copy Your MAC Address Because You will Change it Later
  • On your Android device, go to Settings -> WiFi. Here, tap on the Settings cog icon, to open the “Configure WiFi” screen.




  • On the bottom of the screen, you will be able to see the MAC address of your WiFi network card. Write it down, in case you need to revert your MAC settings back to their original state.

      • Open Mobile Uncle MTK Tools
      • Swipe to the right till you find connectivity tab.

      • add(h,byte) : 4
      • length(byte) : 6
      • Click Read (The 12 Digits shown in value(h) field is your current wifi mac address. Better write it down if you haven’t done that before).
      • Erase the value(h) field and now put your own 12-digit MAC address (generate any one from your head) or Click here to get free automatic MAC Address.


      IMPORTANT:
      RULES FOR WIFI MAC ADDRESS

      Should have hexadecimal characters only (0-F)
      The second digit of the mac address should be Even Digit only (0 or 2 or 4 or 6 or 8 or A or C or E)
      valid example - 0205160F0A3E
      invalid example - 015GEABCDF57


      • Finally, Click write
      • Exit to Home, Turn Off and turn on your Wi-Fi Again.
      • Now Check your Wi-Fi mac address in Phone Status, it should be Changed to the new Address you entered.

      Note: If you want to go back to your original MAC Address, follow the same step.

      COMPUTER USERS:

      How To Track Your Smartphone Using Cocospy

      Ever wondered what your loved ones (Husband, Wife, Parent, Children, Friends) are doing with the mobile devices? Ever Felt like snooping around their phones, taking a peek of their daily activities on their smartphones?

      iPhone and Map

      Many people out there (including me) sometimes want to know what their loved ones are up to with their smartphones like ; who they're writing & calling, their current location, apps they're installing and places they're visiting through web browsing.

      Well, you can now use an app called COCOSPY to keep a close watch on them.

      WHAT IS COCOSPY

      Cocospy is a free cell phone tracking service platform that allows you to effectively supervise your children's location, texts, calls, etc. All their smartphone activities can now be observed, controlled and managed without having to touch their phones.
      Cocospy has more than 1 million users in more than 190 countries around the world and is accessible without root or Jailbreak on both Android (Android 4.0 & above) and iOS (iOS 7 & Above) devices.

      Cocospy



       FEATURES OF COCOSPY APP
      1. Phone call recording
      2. GPS Location tracker
      3. SMS Spying
      4. Alert & Notification Checker
      5. WhatsApp Chat Spying
      6. Secrete Spying




      PHONE CALL RECORDING
      Cocospy enables users to track the targeted mobile phone call log, thus obtaining information on all incoming and outgoing calls, call time and duration, and call number contact.

      You'd get all this information from the smartphone with this unique feature even if it's deleted by the phone owner or someone else.

      In a situation where your loved one is being targeted by Prank callers or stalked by a strange caller, this feature comes in handy when you want to keep track of who your family member is talking to and how often they are doing.

      GPS LOCATION TRACKER

      Cocospy app

      There are times when you want to know, without their consent, the location of a friend or family member or they keep giving you the wrong location. Cocospy lets you get the targeted device's live location anywhere in the world in real time, letting you know where they are and where they've been as long as they've got the targeted phone.

      This is a nice feature that is useful in finding a stolen phone, tracking a missing person via their phone, knowing all the location that the target device was taken to.

      SMS SPYING
      Short Message Service (SMS) is the indispensable method of communication that has been produced and is a fundamental application in every mobile device. Snooping on all of a smartphone's SMS activities is now possible thanks to the Cocospy SMS Spying feature, which literally allows you to "Spy" and access all of the target phone's sent and received SMS, allowing you to read all of its contents without the consent of your sender or receiver.

      This is a useful feature for private researchers who would like to bug a phone and get access to all SMS messages.


      SIM CHANGE NOTIFICATION
      When the specified phone's sim card is switched, Cocospy will alert you that Sim has been removed or changed.


      WHATSAPP CHAT SPYING


      WhatsApp has been the most widely used social media chat messenger in the planet and so  WhatsApp is installed in almost every smartphone. Cocospy not only enables you to snoop on the target phone's SMS, but also provides you with access to all WhatsApp activities such as chat history, shared media files & documents, and voice and video call history from WhatsApp.

      This can be used to keep a close watch on the chats and type of messages that the target phone receives and sends without having to log them out of WhatsApp or accessing the phone.

      SECRETE SPYING
      It could get awkward when the targeted device owner notices that their device is being snooped on and in most cases it leads to arguments, loss of trust or even a serious battle between the two parties involved.

      Cocospy gives the spy maximum anonymity about their identity and also keeps the targeted device user unaware of bugging their smartphone. Once installed, Cocospy would remain hidden from both the user and the running app services of the system, along with all of its activities.
