iPhone 11 vs iPhone 11 Pro Max Comparison

Should you buy an iPhone 11 or an iPhone 11 Pro Max? We’ll explain the differences


How do you know which is the best phone for you? An iPhone is a big investment and one you want to be sure of. Screen size, battery life, processing power, and camera performance are all key features to consider when choosing the iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro Max. So which will best suit you? 


iPhone 11: one of the most popular iPhones at a great price


If you don't want to spend a fortune on your phone but have to have an iPhone, you’ll save a lot of cash if you select to buy the iPhone 11. Both these phones are furnished with Apple’s A13 Bionic processor – giving a fast and sleek performance. Each benefits from wireless charging, but the 11 doesn't have a wireless charger in the box. If you’re not worried about having the largest phone out there, the iPhone 11 is perfectly adequate for browsing and chatting on its 6.1-inch screen. The iPhone 11 Pro Max offers an impressive 6.5-inch screen, making it better for watching videos and reading emails. Weight might also be a factor, so if you’d prefer a lighter model go for the iPhone 11 at 6.84 ounces, compared to the Pro Max at 7.97 ounces. The size can make all the difference when the phone’s in your pocket if you’re walking around with it all day.


iPhone 11 Pro Max: great battery life and an excellent camera


Whilst the iPhone 11 Pro Max isn't the newest iPhone in town, it’s still a top-of-the-range smartphone with all Apple’s bells and whistles whilst still being able to download the latest iOS software updates. With up to 12 hours of battery life, compared to 11 hours for the iPhone 11, that extra hour can make all the difference if you’re not near a charging facility for long periods. The camera is the main difference between these two devices. While the 11 takes perfectly good photos of its two rear cameras, the 11 Pro Max comes into its own with a third 12-MP telephoto lens for great clarity when zooming in. You’ll see the difference in portrait shots when the lens focuses on the subject rather than the background – a great feature that makes your photography look professional. 


We think the iPhone 11 offers great value and performance for a standard iPhone. But if you want to go up a grade and take fantastic shots, benefit from longer battery life, and prefer a larger screen for working or gaming then the iPhone 11 Pro Max is the phone for you.
