Apple IPhone 11 Pro Max Review
The 3-Minute Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max Review
The iPhone 11 Pro Max Leads Apple's Three-Pronged Attack
2018’s iPhone XR and its iPhone XS sibling were interesting to the stories despite being only a slight update to the iPhone X. The Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max stakes its claim to the smartphone throne by featuring a super A13 Bionic processor that’s as fast as nothing else any of us has seen. This chip sports a new piece of silicon, known as the U1. The U1 is an ultra-wide band wireless chip that will give iPhones spatial awareness of devices nearby. One use of this is to share files via AirDrop by physically pointing your iPhone 11 Pro Max at another iPhone.
Just like the iPhone 11 Pro, the Pro Max also features WiFi 6 for 50% faster WiFi speeds and lower latency in environments with several wireless devices. Tear-downs reveal the Pro Max sports a 4GB RAM, just like the iPhone 11 Pro. Regulatory filings show the phone ships with a 3,046 mAh battery.
The audio is powered by Dolby Atmos’ spatial audio technology. The device display is 6.5 inches matching a $2,500 LG OLED television in quality.

The iPhone 11 Pro Max is an excellent camera phone. This review covers that in enough detail. The A13 Bionic chip makes life a breeze, however. A snap of the finger is like eternity compared to the performance of this phone when all is well.
Some reports have called it the “scattershot release,” but even developers have said the iPhone 11 Pro Max’s iOS 13 operating system is worse than the iOS 8. iCloud syncing seems to be fraught with issues, while many users report serious problems with Mail and Reminders (AppleVis especially). Even the US Department of Defense is urging staff and contractors to steer clear of iOS 13,
Other issues include the Camera app being non-performant, AirDrop issues, and dropping cellular signals, among others.
iOS 13 seems to be replete with significant security flaws that allow bypassing the lock screen to gain access to contact information.
Is it for you?
One way to determine if this phone is for you is to benchmark it against other phones. Placed side by side with the iPhone 11, the difference in brightness is significant. The iPhone 11 Pro Max’s 6.5-inch Super Retina XDR display is superior even to the Galaxy Note 10 Plus. If a bright screen matters to you, this is the phone for you.
What we like
The iPhone 11 Pro Max’s cameras is an intimidating triple threat. This intimidating combo finally puts Apple’s cameras over their Android counterparts. In truth, it may take a while for those to catch up.
There are three stellar 12MP rear cameras – one wide-angle, one 2x telephoto with wider aperture that allows more light in than before, and one ultra-wide camera with a 120-degree field of view.
Of course, the A13 Bionic CPU remains second to now, making this the fastest phone money can buy.
What we don’t like
The notch toward the top houses the FaceID TrueDepth camera. This can be distracting, though you will learn to live with it. Another sore point is the size. At 6.2 x 3.06 x 0.32 inches and 7.97 ounces, the iPhone 11 Pro Max is a handful. It is heavier and thicker than the iPhone XS Max.
Should you buy it?
With its captivating triple cameras, the longest iPhone battery life, and ultimate displays, there should not be another reason you should not buy this phone. The iPhone 11 Pro Max is the ultimate choice for power users. If you consider yourself to be one, by all means, consider this phone to be a worthy investment.
