Battery Life:
3.9
The Battery Life rating is based on overall actual measured battery life during typical usage.
Videos:
3.8
The Apple iPhone 11 captures fair videos due in part to limitations in dynamic range and low light performance, which can affect the video quality in various lighting conditions. However, it benefits from a good video software experience and stabilization, helping to ensure smoother footage and a more user-friendly recording process.
Overall Camera:
3.7
The Apple iPhone 11's selfie camera performance is rated good, which falls under fair considering the expectations at its time of release. The dynamic range and camera versatility scores are poor, indicating limited performance in capturing a wide range of light and offering fewer photographic options, contributing to an overall fair assessment of the cameras.
Photos:
3.2
The Apple iPhone 11 takes fair photos partly due to its lower dynamic range and low light performance, impacting photo quality in challenging lighting conditions.

Tom's Guide

Mark Spoonauer | September 2021
"The iPhone 11 delivers superb cameras, fast performance and excellent battery life, making it the iPhone to buy for many people. The cameras are very good, thanks to an ultra-wide lens and a Night mode for better low-light performance. This device also has IP68-rated water resistance, which means that it can withstand 2 meters of water for 30 minutes, and is one of the best waterproof phones out there."
