A look at the iPhone 11 Pro Max features
If you've heard anything about the new range of iPhones, then it's probably concerned the triple-camera set up. The addition of the wide-angle camera lens means that you can capture more of the beautiful scenery you want; you can even shoot stunning 4K video that looks professional thanks to the cinematic video stabilisation feature. Low light photos come out looking great with Night Mode; it's activated automatically, ensuring that you get the best shot regardless of the light conditions. Your photo-capturing ability will get a helping hand from AI. The software will analyse and combine the pixels of eight different shots to create the best possible photo – a neat and helpful addition that we love.
Design and display
The design of the iPhone 11 Pro Max, like its smaller sibling, has drawn both praise and criticism. Let's get the obvious out of the way here: the triple-camera set-up is not the most attractive. Something about the lenses' size and configuration jars against the sleekness of the handset, drawing the eye to just how busy and crowded the top left corner is. Cameras aside, it's safe to say that the handset looks excellent – it's sleek, feeling and looking like the premium gadget it is. Apple has given it a matt back and an 'oleophobic' coating, which should keep fingerprints to a minimum. You can choose from four different colours: Gold, Space Grey, Silver, Midnight Green; they're not the most' fun' but are fitting for a premium product.
The display deserves a special mention; colours are bright and sharp with the kind of clarity that brings subtle details to life unlike other handsets on the market. It's made possible by the improved panel, making catching up on your favourite TV shows an absolute delight.
Processor and battery
The battery on the iPhone 11 Pro Max currently beats all its competitors and we're seriously impressed. You can expect a full charge to last up to 12 hours of active browsing, which is an hour longer compared to the iPhone 11 Pro. The handset comes with a fast charger in the box, and you can expect about a 50% charge in 30 minutes. It's not the fastest of the fast charges, but then again, no other phone has a battery that lasts this long. The long battery life supports the A13 Bionic processor, which makes this phone very fast. Apps load without an issue, and there's no lag when switching between tasks and apps either.
Overall, we're impressed with a lot of what the iPhone 11 Pro Max offers. It's a premium product with some fantastic features, giving competitors a serious run for their money. The battery life is great, especially considering how fast the phone is. The handset looks pleasingly sleek, except the trip-camera design though it's probably something to get used to. While this model doesn't reinvent the smartphone wheel, it does offer a worthy premium option for anyone looking for an upgrade.
