In September 2019, Apple launched the iPhone 11. This device quickly became the best-selling phone in the first half of 2020, with almost 37.7 million units sold during this time.
Now, the iPhone 11 is two years old, and more advanced phones have come out in those two years. What would make the iPhone 11 still worth buying today?
The Rear Camera System is Exceptional, Even By Today’s Standards
Even though the iPhone 11 came out two years ago, you still get a high-quality camera system that can still hold its own against newer phone models. You get a 4K video recording, high-quality stereo audio, and exceptional video stabilization out of the box.
This camera comes with an ultra-wide lens that lets you shoot images and videos with a 120-degree field of view, which works perfectly for those sweeping landscape or architecture shots.
Many smartphone cameras struggle with low light photography, but the camera’s larger sensor allows you to take brighter shots in low light conditions. When you are in poor lighting, Night Mode shoots multiple images at once while the political image stabilization keeps your photo steady and clear.
The A13 Bionic is Still One of the Fastest Chipsets on the Market
Even after two years, the A13 Bionic chip is still a powerful chipset by today’s standards. The A13 Bionic can power 8.5 trillion operations per second, which gives your device the horsepower to run any app you want to throw at it with ease.
The A13 Bionic uses an 8-core Neural Engine for real-time analysis of photos and videos. This generation of the Neural Engine is 20% faster and consumes 15% less power than previous iterations, and powers the camera, AR apps, FaceID, and more.
The Battery Will Last You All Day
According to Apple, the battery can give you:
- Up to 17 hours of local video playback
- Up to 10 hours of streaming video
- Up to 65 hours of audio playback
If you still find yourself low on power at any time, you can recharge your device to 50% battery capacity in 30 minutes if you have a USB-C charging adapter that supports at least 18 watts. You can get a 30-watt fast charging adapter from Apple for $49.
The iPhone 11 is Weather and Damage Resistant
You won’t need to stress if someone accidentally spills water on your iPhone. The iPhone 11 comes with an IP68 dust and water resistance rating, and it can survive 30 minutes in two meters of non-salty water.
In other words, it can resist rain and occasional water splashes that can randomly occur.
According to Apple, the iPhone 11 is made with Gorilla Glass, the most resilient glass used in making a smartphone. This tough glass makes the iPhone’s screen and back far less likely to crack and break during an accidental drop.
You Get a Massive Discount for a Revolutionary Device
Since the iPhone 13 lineup launched, Apple cut the iPhone 11 to a rock-bottom price of $499 for its 64GB model or $549 for the 128GB version. For this price, you’ll get a phone that still offers exceptional performance without emptying your wallet.
