Today we will venture a comparison and test what innovations Apple has come up with over the past two years Because we say: iPhone 11 vs. iPhone X.

Design and display: trendsetter iPhone X

With the iPhone X, Apple has now introduced the characteristic feature of its cell phones: the notch. This means the notch on the upper edge of the display, in which the front camera and other sensors are located. This makes the screen almost borderless. Apple is sticking to this trend with the new generation, because the iPhone 11 also comes with a notch.

With regard to the display quality, there are some differences: the iPhone 11 is slightly larger at 6.1 inches (for comparison: the iPhone X measures 5.8 inches), but the resolution of the Retina HD display is 1,792 x 828 pixels significantly weaker than that of the Super Retina HD panel in the iPhone X (2,436 x 1,125 pixels). This means that the quality of both phones is high, but the iPhone X displays all of the content in an even more intense and contrasty manner.

Performance: A13 vs. A11

In every iPhone generation, Apple also installs an improved chip that elevates the cell phone to new levels of performance. The manufacturer from Cupertino once again demonstrated this impressively at this year's keynote with the A13-Bionic. The in-house processor is manufactured in the 7 nanometer process, works a lot faster and at the same time more economical than its predecessor and thus manages to drive the 2019 iPhones to maximum performance. It is made up of six cores, two of which are responsible for performance and another four act as effiency cores. The six-core A11 bionic processor is located in the iPhone X. It is manufactured using the 10 nm process and was one of the fastest chips on the market at the time. In direct comparison to the brand new A13, however, it falls slightly because it cannot keep up in terms of speed and performance.

Camera: point for the iPhone 11

One of the biggest updates of the 2019 iPhone generation came with regard to the camera equipment. While the premium models even have a triple cam installed, the iPhone 11 comes with a dual main camera. This consists of an ultra-wide-angle and a wide-angle lens and enables two-fold optical zoom out and five-fold digital zoom. On board is a portrait mode with an advanced bokeh effect and depth control. You can take top quality selfies with the 12 megapixel front camera including portrait light with six effects. Compared to the cameras of the previous models, Apple has especially improved the night mode and the quality of the recordings in difficult lighting conditions. There was also an update in terms of video recordings: With the iPhone 11, video recordings with up to 60 fps are possible.

The iPhone X also has a dual camera, consisting of a wide-angle and a telesensor. With its 12 megapixels, it also takes good pictures, but doesn't have as many features as the iPhone 11's cam. The 7-megapixel front camera provides you with good selfies, but it doesn't offer the same quality as the iPhone 11.

Battery and performance: who can last the longest?

The battery capacity of the iPhones is often criticized. In the 2019 models, the manufacturer therefore attached great importance to a longer-lasting battery: Not only is the brand new A13-Bionic more energy-efficient, the capacity has also increased. The iPhone 11 can play video for up to 17 hours and play audio for up to 65 hours. And should the battery come to an end, it can be recharged by 50 percent in half an hour thanks to the integrated quick-charge function with an 18-watt charger.

The battery of the iPhone X can also be seen with a talk time of 1260 minutes, but the A11 chip is not as energy-efficient as the A13, so that the battery of the iPhone X moves much faster towards the red zone.

When it comes to storage capacity, the two phones don't take up much: the iPhone X is available with 64 GB or 256 GB of internal memory, with the iPhone 11 you have to choose between 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB.

Conclusion: duel at eye level

Both the iPhone 11 and the iPhone X are first-class smartphones that convince with their elegant design and flawless performance. If you attach great importance to excellent performance and excellent camera equipment, the iPhone 11 is the right choice for you. Because in these points Apple has given the 2019 mobile phone a proper update. In addition, the price-performance ratio of the iPhone 11 leaves nothing to be desired. Only in terms of display quality is the iPhone X ahead. But one thing is certain: no matter what your decision, you will definitely get a top smartphone.
