What you need to know
- Most iPhone 11 reviewers said the iPhone 11 feels too big.
- Some also noted that the design is a little too familiar.
- Not everyone disliked the size, however.
Reviews for the iPhone 11 have come flooding in, and people seem to love Apple's newest flagship. And not just because it's affordable; the device is fast, has battery for days, and comes equipped with a terrific camera. Bottom line: It's the iPhone most people should buy.
But not everything is rosy. Reviewers did have a few complaints about the iPhone 11, from the LCD screen not being as good as the OLED on the Pros, to the inclusion of a 5W charger. More than anything, reviewers seem to dislike the fact that the iPhone 11 sticks too closely to the iPhone XR design and only comes in one large size.
The Verge said for most people upgrading from older, smaller iPhones, the iPhone 11 might feel a little big:
Engadget said that the iPhone 11 can feel chunky, especially compared to the iPhone 11 Pro:
TechRadar took issue with the fact that the iPhone 11's design feels too recycled:
Although Gear Patrol appreciated the internal changes, they still felt the iPhone 11 feels a little too familiar:
Wired said the size can be an issue for people with smaller hands:
Despite these complaints, not everyone disliked the iPhone 11's size. iMore said the iPhone 11 exists in that Goldilocks zone:
The iPhone 11 is available for preorder now and will launch on September 20 for $699.
The iPhone 11 is the iPhone for everyone. It features powerful guts, a great camera, and a battery that lasts forever. It's also affordable, making it a great option for the average consumer.
If the 11 had the same OLED screen as the pro to support HDR, that very well might have pushed me over the edge to go that route instead of the Pro series. Sure other things in the Pro pushed me as well like the battery, extra depth on the IP68 rating, and the telephoto lens. The screen though was probably the number 1 thing because I was seriously considering an 11 until I remembered the screen.
"Reviews for the iPhone 11 have come flooding in, and people seem to love Apple's newest flagship." This is not a flagship. This is the affordable model.
Same with the display had Apple not recycled lcd again and gone with OLED I would have preordered an 11 already but guess I’ll have to wait till next year as I do like the size better than both my x and th new 11 pro max.. loosing battery life an a crack on the the screen has me needing to upgrade but I wanted the 11 just not that same ol display. I work at a cell phone store and although the xr/11 display is ok unfortunately I can tell the difference. Guess I’ll have to wait...
