Apple iPhone 11 (64GB) - Black (includes EarPods power adapter) review

Does Apple iPhone 11 (64GB) – Black include EarPods power adapter? The most eye-catching feature of the iPhone 11 is its imaging capabilities: with two sensors on the rear, you can now take wider-angle snaps alongside the ‘normal’ main images. These sensors are 12MP each, and are raised from the rear of the phone in a square glass enclosure. Know more in Apple iPhone 11 (64GB) – Black (includes EarPods power adapter) review.

 Apple iPhone 11 (64GB) – Black (includes EarPods power adapter) Price

Thanks to its reduced price, the iPhone 11 remains one of the best phones for the money. Now at $499 following the iPhone 13 launch, the new iPhone costs $200 less than the iPhone 13 mini and $300 less than the iPhone 13. 

For the UK, you can buy the iPhone 11 from Apple’s website, where it debuted at £729, £779, £879 for the 64GB, 128GB and 256GB storage versions respectively. In comparison, this was about £20 less than the entry level iPhone XR’s launch price, which is unarguably a discount, but a paltry one. These days, UK shoppers pay £489 for the iPhone 11.

At 5.94 x 2.98 x 0.33 inches and 6.84 ounces, the iPhone 11 is identical to the iPhone XR in size and weight. This puts the phone in between the 5.8-inch iPhone 11 Pro and the 6.5-inch iPhone 11 Pro Max, which I find to be a happy medium in terms of immersive viewing and being able to use the phone with one hand.


The iPhone 11’s Liquid Retina HD display is still 6.1 inches like the iPhone XR with the same 1792 x 828 resolution.  It’s fantastic for an LCD, with vibrant colors and excellent brightness. The display registered 652 nits of brightness, which is better than the iPhone XR’s 589 nits.

This panel also registered 113% of the sRGB color gamut. That pales in comparison to some phones with OLED displays; for example, the Galaxy S10 got 208.2%, the OnePlus 7 Pro 180%. It’s important to note, though, that Apple purposely tunes its displays to not offer oversaturated hues.


The other big improvement comes from the iPhone 11’s new 12-MP ultra-wide camera, which joins the standard 12-MP camera. Apple added an ultra-wide f/2.4 camera to the back of the phone, improved the sensor for the main f/1.8 camera, and updated the front camera to a 12-megapixel sensor with a slightly wider field of view in landscape and the ability to take 4K60 video. 

This feature lets you fit in up to four times more scene without having to back up, thanks to a 120-degree field of view. In a clever move, the redesigned camera interface gives you a sneak preview of what you could squeeze into the frame if you engaged the ultra-wide lens.

Deep Fusion

This feature will take nine photos before you press the shutter button to take a snap, go through the information in each, and then on a pixel-by-pixel basis will decide how best to light and optimize the snap when you do take it. It was called “mad science” on stage – and if it works, we’ll be happy to go along with Apple’s description.

Spatial audio

When it comes to sound, the iPhone 11’s new spatial audio provides a wider soundstage, complete with Dolby Atmos support. And for a moment I thought I was in a movie theater as I watched the Trailer for John Wick 3. I could clearly hear glass breaking to the left and right of me as it smashed on screen, and every gunshot echoed through my brain (for better or worse).

Spatial audio supports 5.1 and 7.1 surround — Netflix will play in Dolby Digital 5.1 — and it also supports Dolby Atmos in movies from the iTunes store, which is a little silly for stereo speakers, but it’s there.

Apple iPhone 11 (64GB) – Black (includes EarPods power adapter) – is it true?

What’s less great is the fact that Apple is still putting its ancient 5W charger in the box, even though the iPhone 11 Pro has an 18W USB-C fast charger.

As part of Apple’s efforts to reach environmental goals, iPhone 11 does not include a power adapter or EarPods. Included in the box is a USB‑C to Lightning cable that supports fast charging and is compatible with USB‑C power adapters and computer ports. They recommend to re‑use your current USB‑A to Lightning cables, power adapters, and headphones which are compatible with this iPhone. But if you need any new Apple power adapters or headphones, they are available for purchase.

4K recording

Apple designed the iPhone 11’s cameras to offer extended dynamic range to achieve better highlight details and smoother motion via cinematic stabilization. More and more smartphone makers are upping their video game, and Apple has come out swinging with 4K support for both of its cameras at 60 fps.

What Apple set out to do was give videographers the ability to shoot the same quality video using either lens while maintaining the color and exposure even as you walk through trick lighting situations.

Water resistance

This device also has IP68-rated water resistance, which means that it can withstand 2 meters of water for 30 minutes, and is one of the best waterproof phones out there. The iPhone XR could do only 1 meter. The iPhone 11 Pro ups that to 4 meters, but that’s hardly a reason to spend extra dough.

U chip

The iPhone 11 also has Apple’s new U1 positioning chip in it, which uses an ultra-wideband radio to precisely locate the phone in relation to other U1 devices — eventually. The only promised use of this chip is that it will eventually AirDrop a little easier, but it doesn’t do anything right now.

Battery life

The iPhone 11 offers very good endurance. On the Tom’s Guide Battery Test, which involves continuous web surfing over 4G at 150 nits of screen brightness, the iPhone 11’s battery lasted an average of 11 hours and 16 minutes. 


The iPhone 11 supports 4G LTE, which offers decent performance but not the same speeds as the iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max. Why? Because while the new iPhone has 2x 2 MIMO antennas, the iPhone 11 Pro models offer 4×4 MIMO for better performance.

Apple already had the fastest CPU in a phone at the time of the iPhone 11’s release, and that phone’s A13 Bionic processor extended the company’s lead. (The A14 Bionic in the current iPhone 12 lineup is even faster.) Apple claims that the A13 chip offers 20 percent faster performance across the board over its predecessor, including CPU, graphics and machine learning.

Apple iPhone 11 (64GB) – Black (includes EarPods power adapter) Benchmark review

On Geekbench 5, a benchmark that measures overall performance, the iPhone 11 notched a single-core mark of 1,333 and a multicore score of 3,251, compared with 736 and 2,691, respectively, for the Galaxy Note 10 Plus. The OnePlus 7 Pro hit 744 and 2,802 on the same test.

We also ran GFX Bench, which is another graphics benchmark, and this time the iPhone 11 crushed it. On the Aztech Ruins High Tier offscreen test, the iPhone 11 hit 1481 frames (23 fps), compared with 1,058 frames (16 fps) for the Galaxy Note 10. On the Normal Tier version of the same test, the iPhone 11 hit 4,366/67.9 fps versus the Galaxy Note 10’s 1,486/23 fps.

When it comes to graphics performance, the iPhone 11 fell behind top Android phones on the 3DMark benchmark app. On the Slingshot Extreme Metal portion of the test, the iPhone 11 scored 5,785 on the Slingshot Extreme Unlimited Test. By comparison, the Note 10 scored 6,295 on and the OnePlus 7 6,375.

Apple iPhone 11 (64GB) – Black (includes EarPods power adapter) customer review

The best things are the camera and battery life

Broke my iPhone 6s camera on a Saturday before I was set flight for cousin’s wedding next Thurs, ordered this that Saturday night, and order came as expected on Wed-so first thank you so much for the speedy delivery! As for the appearance I like the sleeker design of iPhone 6s but it just takes getting used to, and the larger screen is nice. As with many other reviews, the camera is a large upgrade from older iPhone models, and has everything you need for its portability. A nice surprise was that this phone has video stabilization (smooth flowing footage when I record while walking). The video stabilization along with portrait mode and ultra wide camera are real game-changers! (oh yeah, and much better low light photos too!)

A con is that time lapse videos won’t sometimes save into camera roll. (I was so disappointed when my time lapse video over NYC just disappeared after I pressed to finish recording…and it wasn’t the first time) Besides the camera, the battery is also great-unlike my old iPhone 6s I could carry it all day outside without a phone charger. Overall I’m happy because I mainly bought this phone for the portable camera. Now for its price, it will be wonderful if this would last me another 5 years!
