iPhone XR was 2018’s most affordable iPhone release. Encased in aluminium, and available in bright colours, it was an instant hit. iPhone 11 Pro is Apple’s 2019 flagship, and a tech-loaded marvel.

iPhone 11 Pro is an all glass affair, with a dazzling 5.8-inch OLED screen, outshining even XR’s excellent 6.1-inch LCD display. Everything about iPhone 11 Pro screams premium – iPhone XR’s capable 12-megapixel rear camera is outclassed by the superb triple lens camera array on iPhone 11 Pro. The front camera has had an upgrade too, from 7 to 12 megapixels.

Apple’s speedy new A13 Bionic chipset and more RAM mean that every operation will be smooth and lag-free. Not only is iPhone 11 Pro’s battery much bigger than iPhone XR’s, but it lasts longer too – you can fast charge your iPhone 11 Pro up to 50% in 30 minutes, and a full charge will last all day.

iPhone XR is a great phone for those on a tighter budget, but iPhone 11 Pro is an outstanding smartphone in an eminently pocketable package.
