Last year, Apple broke the Rs 1 lakh barrier with its XS range of smartphones and has now followed it up the same pricing for iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. But even for die-hard Apple fans, shelling out more than Rs 1 lakh might be a bridge too far. Perhaps that is why Apple realised that it needed a phone that keeps the fans on its side and gain a few converts (those who will switch from Android phones) as well. The iPhone 11 is that phone for Apple.

The iPhone 11 comes as the successor to the widely-popular iPhone XR and it does have some big boots to fill. Apple hasn¡¦t tinkered too much with the display of iPhone 11. It retains the 6.1-inch Liquid Retina display found in the iPhone XR. What is different in the design is the dual rear camera setup. iPhone 11 comes with a 12-megapixel wide lens and another 12-megapixel ultra-wide lens.

While Apple has cut some corners in iPhone 11, especially in the display, compared to the iPhone 11 Pro series, it hasn¡¦t made any compromises on the performance. The iPhone 11 is powered by the A13 bionic processor, which delivers blazing fast speed. We didn¡¦t notice even a hint of lag or stuttering during our time with the iPhone 11. You can unleash all sorts of heavy-duty tasks at the iPhone 11 and it handles them all with ease. The dual rear camera setup is a welcome addition to the iPhone 11.

Last year, XR didn¡¦t have certain camera features present in more expensive versions. With the iPhone 11, barring the lack of a telephoto lens, the camera remains more or less the same as the Pro range. The images clicked with iPhone 11 offer a lot of details; the colours are accurate and it manages to get the lighting accurate almost every time.

iPhone 11 has a 12-megapixel front camera and Apple has added some nifty features to the camera app to make the whole experience much better. It delivers impressive battery life and we found that on a single charge, it lasted easily for up to 14 hours with moderate to heavy usage.

At a starting price of Rs 64,900, the iPhone 11 is a no-brainer for anyone who is looking to upgrade from an older iPhone.
