iPhone 11 Pro Max reviewed in full: the best camera and screen on a phone ever.


What can I say, the iPhone 11 Pro Max is hands down the best iPhone I have ever used. The best camera and screen on a phone I have ever known. Don’t get me wrong, I grew tired of the minimal changes through the iPhone range (notably 7 and 8) but I finally feel like Apple had a justifiable product to warrant putting out the new model.

Now look I want to put this out there now. Full disclaimer and warning: I LOVE APPLE PRODUCTS! So accepted my opinion can be construed as biased a little, I would be lying to myself if it wasn’t. That said, I’m offering a fair evaluation of the iPhone 11 Pro Max and I would like to point out this is the first iPhone since the 4 model range I am genuinely impressed by (not as much as the iPhone 4 though). It’s on offer at Amazon at the moment too, at least the model linked.

I used to confuse picking up my iPhone 7 and 8. That says much about the quality of Apple as well as the needless and continual upgrade of model without substance but this is different…

iPhone 11 Pro Max best camera and screen ever

So without question my favourite thing on the iPhone is the new camera setup. I took a selfie that gave me my first real ‘3d’ kind of experience from Apple. They call it “TrueDepth” as a feature. To me, in simple terms is a selfie that looks and feels real, as if it’s come to life. Game changing from Apple. I am not including a picture because my website is optimised to the hilt and butchers the image quality. It would be a complete fail to show you the difference. Instead take a look at Apples website who can afford to show you how good the shots are…

Take a look at the cool camera! The only drawback I noticed is that it protrudes a far way without screen protector or case ( not that I am mad enough to not have one ). The glass breaks way too easily on hard floors..

iPhone 11 Pro Max Specs

Are you into specs? This phone blows everything away. In fact to a point of being boring and so over the top that they make you feel like you’re in the cockpit of a sports car. Was that what they wanted to do? The marketing team I mean? To me that’s probably the only fail of the phone. I mean who the heck knows what an ‘A13 Bionic chip with third-generation Neural Engine’ means. It’s like listing specs as a way to outdo the competition and bamboozle the client rather than engage you but here’s Apple’s complete spec if you’re interested. Don’t get me wrong, they crush the Nokia best phone range and to mention them in the same breathe seems mad to me.

Here’s the key take aways for anyone generally interested in what the phone can do:

  • 1080p HD video recording at 30 fps or 60 fps
  • 720p HD video recording at 30 fps
  • Triple 12MP Ultra Wide cameras
  • Red‑eye correction
  • Panorama (up to 63MP) (insane picture quality
  • 12MP camera TrueDepth (3d appearance is a better way to describe it)
  • Lasts up to 5 hours longer than iPhone XS Max

Those are all incredible stats by the way. This phone is in a league of its own and for the first time since the iPhone 4, I am genuinely proud to own it and the phone before that a nokia 105 for those of us old enough to know a time before the iPhone 4! So to recap, the iPhone 11 Pro Max is the best camera and screen on a phone ever and its a game changer.

Well done Apple this phone is a complete success and its about time you set the bar miles above the competition.
