iPhone XS Vs. iPhone 11: Is The Upgrade Worth It?
By Gonzo Tech.
If you are a proud owner of an iPhone XS, you probably love your phone. Still, many iPhone fans have been wondering if the switch to the latest iPhone 11 model is actually worth it.
Announced in September, the iPhone 11 is an impressive successor of the iPhone XS, offering (a couple of) upgraded features. To begin with, it has a great camera and a fast processor. Also, there is some new hardware with more colour options to choose from.
The best way to see whether the iPhone 11 is better than the iPhone XS is go through their main features.
What’s New: iPhone 11 Vs. iPhone XS Feature Comparison
The iPhone 11 starts at $699 and is an affordable option when it comes to the iPhone pricing. What you need to know is that the model comes in two versions, the iPhone 11 and the iPhone 11 Pro (and iPhone 11 Pro Max).
While the iPhone 11 does not have the same OLED display such as the iPhone XS, the iPhone 11 Pro model has one. The camera features and setup, however, are improved on both phones – we particularly like the Night Mode and the ultra wide angle lens which gives dramatic and sweeping shots.
The phone is also faster, has a better battery (which lasts longer) and subtle upgrades such as a U1 chip that keep it in tip-top shape as the newest edition of Apple’s flagship smartphones.
You should not get us wrong, though. The iPhone XS is still only one model behind the 11, and the smartphone is very capable, reliable and handy. That said, switching to an 11 may be a difficult thought. But if you neither have the XS nor the 11 version, we’d recommend you to consider the iPhone 11 mainly because of the similar price point.
Candy-Colored Looks And Improved Photo Quality
To sum things up, the iPhone 11 edition is great if you like more vibrant colours besides the standard black, white and gold (as seen on iPhone XS). The new colours include purple, yellow, green, white, black, and red.
Colours aside, there are many useful new camera tricks and features. Photos taken in low-light and at night are more light and vibrant, and the Deep Fusion option improves photo quality and optimizes details for pictures taken in medium-light settings, too (such as buildings or rooms).
The final verdict is that the switch is worth making only if you have the money in your pocket or a desire to switch colours. And if you are thinking too much, don’t – the iPhone XS that you have is still a great phone with a great camera.
