Here's how Consumer Reports check the smartphone's battery life:
To find out how long the battery of a phone, Consumer Reports uses a finger robotic programmed to subject the phone to a series of activities designed to simulate the average day of a consumer. The robot surf the Internet, take photos, use GPS navigation, and, of course, makes phone calls.
And the quality of the camera? Consumer Reports does not elaborate the details here, but says that the devices have obtained “some of the highest scores in these categories. To the image quality of the rear, all three models of the iPhone 11 have obtained ratings “very good“, which makes them in line with the competition.
Our testers say that 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max have got some of the highest scores in our ratings for the quality of the still images. The iPhone 11 has also obtained a score of very good in this category. And all three phones have received an excellent rating for the quality of the video.
Apple also says that the iPhone series 11 offers a greater durability. All three phones have survived a water resistance test, but the iPhone 11 Pro was not able to pass a durability test:
The tumbler is a spinning chamber, which makes you fall again and again a phone from a height of about 1 meter. The phone is checked after 50 drops and then again after 100. The goal is to expose it to impacts from a variety of angles.
In the case of the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro Max, the phones that we have tested have passed all of the 100 falls with only minor scratches. But when we checked the iPhone 11 Pro after 50 drops, we discovered that its display was broken and not working. It is also broken a second sample.
In the end, Consumer Reports has evaluated the iPhone 11 Pro Max with an overall score of 95, followed by the iPhone 11 Pro with 92. The iPhone 11 has achieved an overall score of 89, placing eighth place overall.
