Although its iPhone 11 mother model rocks a larger screen, at 6.1 inches, the 5.8-inch iPhone 11 Pro's assortment of pros and cons nevertheless makes it a higher-specked smartphone, although we are not quite sure if it has what it takes to rub elbows with the best smartphones on the market as of this data-driven Phonerated review.
Starting off with its cons, this Pro version lacks a microSD card slot for external memory, although its priciest variant boasts a massive 512GB native storage cap . It runs on an A13 Bionic chip with an integrated third-generation Neural Engine, which basically means that there's no big difference between this 2019 iPhone and its 2018 XS predecessor when it comes to hardware specs.
Another slight drawback is its 12-megapixel-only front-facing camera , which does not quite have the premium-class ring that the selfie cams of the best selfie smartphones have.
On the flip side, its triple 12-megapixel rear cam system is an outright pro to us, especially with things like a 4K-2160p maximum video-recording resolution and dual optical image stabilization tagging along.
The iPhone 11 Pro's screen comes in the form of a 5.8-inch Super Retina XDR display that features a blustering (by 2019 standards) 1200-nit peak brightness level on HDR mode alongside support for HDR10 content and Apple's Haptic Touch pressure-sensing technology. It has a 2436 x 1125 raw pixel resolution and it scores a 458ppi pixel density ratio that brings to mind some of the leading large-screen phones available.
Among its other pros and cons are Siri, which is Apple's trademark voice assistant, the Apple Pay mobile wallet management app powered by its NFC adapter and Face ID, and support for Apple Card -- Apple's self-branded credit card.
This iPhone edition comes with an IP68 waterproof rating and is offered in Space Gray, Gold, Midnight Green, and Silver.
All said, the iPhone 11 Pro makes for a solid choice for those eying a high-specked iPhone.
