Apple iPhone 11 Pro review

9.3/10 AVG.

Informr score
The Apple iPhone 11 Pro currently has an Informr score of 9.3 out of 10. This score is based on our evaluation of 40 sources including reviews from users and the web's most trusted critics.

The Apple iPhone 11 Pro is the mid-tier model in Apple’s 2019 iPhone lineup. But it shares many similarities with its larger sibling, the iPhone 11.

Notable differences include:

  • A smaller 5.8-inch Super Retina XDR OLED display with HDR10+ support running at 2436-by-1125 pixels
  • An additional 12MP telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom on the rear camera
  • Improved IP68 water resistance good for submersion in up to 4 meters (13ft) of water
  • Increased storage capacity options up to 512GB
  • A larger 3190mAh battery

If screen quality is important to you, the iPhone 11 Pro is perhaps the sweet spot in the line-up. It has improved contrast and color over the standard iPhone 11 and increased resolution. Reviewers found it excellent for everything from reading text to watching HD video.

The camera also includes an additional 12MP sensor and telephoto lens, providing up to 2x optical zoom -- something the iPhone 11 cannot do. Reviewers also noticed improved accuracy with the portrait shot modes of the camera thanks to the extra data available from the lens.

The phone’s larger battery allows for all-day battery life with ease and a noticeable boost over the previous iPhone XS. However, the iPhone 11 Pro also includes an 18-watt charger with the phone -- unlike the iPhone 11-- so charging speeds will be snappier as well.

Finally, there are some subtle design differences. While looks are largely the same as the standard iPhone 11, the rear glass features a matte coating which reviewers liked for its added grip and improved fingerprint- and smudge-resistance. The frame is also stainless steel instead of aluminum adding a slight bit of heft and a more premium feel.

In terms of performance, software, connectivity options, and more, the iPhone 11 lineup is identical. Many reviewers actually recommend the standard iPhone 11 over the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max for most users.

What the Critics Are Saying...


The iPhone 11 Pro is Apple's most powerful phone that come in a one-hand-friendly size. It has a triple-lens camera to capture best-in-class photos and video from a variety of perspectives, a new night mode to enhance low-light photography and extra battery life prowess. Even if the design hasn't ch...

The iPhone 11 Pro feels like an iterative addition to the Apple phone family rather than a groundbreaking one but it’s the clever refinements that make this “Pro” one of the best phones on the market right now. Buy it and you won’t be disappointed.

- Adam Speight, Recombu

The iPhone 11 Pro's camera might be its stand-out feature, but every part of it has been refined from the inside out. It all combines into a big upgrade, and a truly brilliant phone.

Ultimately, the triple camera system in the latest Apple iPhone 11 Pro sets it apart from the competition, featuring the 13-mm ultrawide, the 26-wide, and the 52-mm telephoto angles. In this day and age of influencer marketing, bringing an excellent camera phone is no longer a luxury but a must. Sto...

The good news is that the sum of this camera’s parts is a noticeable step forward. It’s still a game of catch-up for engineers in Cupertino, but a first-place finish is within sight if they push to help people capture images they’ve never seen before.
