This Is The Worst Mistake You Can Make When Buying A New iPhone 11

The new iPhone 11 is out and you’re excited — and for good reason. Apple’s latest device boasts a slew of incredible features, including its most obvious, physical difference: an upgraded camera that has the ability to take wide-angle shots and incredible video and photo footage.

But no one device is perfect. It’s equally important to know what not to expect from a phone that costs hundreds of dollars. This is the worst mistake you can make when buying a new iPhone 11.



You Make The Mistake Of Thinking The iPhone 11 Has 5G

The iPhone 11 can do so much. But there’s one thing it does not have: 5G

According to “If you're waiting for a phone with 5G, this isn't it. It's possible we'll see the faster cellular capabilities in next year's models, but for now, you'll have to look elsewhere--mostly the Galaxy S10 5G or the Galaxy Note 10 5G (known for their very creative names).”


Aside from its 5G deficiency, there are plenty more reasons to invest in an iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro then there are drawbacks.

If you’re wondering what a few key differences are between the two devices so that you can make a more informed purchase, Mac Rumors spells it out.

For starters:

“Although they look very similar, the iPhone 11 is made with an aluminum frame and both the front and back are made of glass. The iPhone 11 Pro has the same glass build as the iPhone 11, but with a premium matte finish on the back of the device. Instead of an aluminum frame, its frame is made of stainless steel.”


Another major difference is the size of an iPhone 11 versus an iPhone 11 Pro.

“The iPhone 11 sports a 6.1-inch ‘Liquid Retina HD’ LCD display, while the iPhone 11 Pro family has a sharper ‘Super Retina XDR’ OLED display,” reports Mac Rumors. “While the LCD on the iPhone 11 provides true-to-life colors, the OLED on the iPhone 11 Pro is brighter in sunlight, can display true blacks and more detail in bright areas, and is able to support HDR movies on iTunes.”


One concession you’ll never have to make with either the iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro? Battery power.

“The iPhone 11 has up to one hour longer battery life than the iPhone XR (its direct predecessor),” reports Mac Rumors. “Based on Apple's internal testing, the iPhone 11 is rated for up to 17 hours of offline video playback, up to 10 hours of streaming video over Wi-Fi, and up to 65 hours of audio playback per charge. The iPhone 11 Pro has up to four hours longer battery life than the iPhone XS, rated for up to 18 hours of offline video playback, up to 11 hours of streaming video over Wi-Fi, and up to 65 hours of audio playback per charge.”

Whichever phone you choose, you can’t go wrong — though you will have to be patient if 5G is on your ultimate tech wish list.
