iPhone 11’s Rs. 34,999 price excluding bank charges. So if you have an SBI card, the cost is Rs. 31,269 (inclusive of packing charges of Rs. 29). It’s a really incredible deal on the iPhone 11, but is it worth buying in 2022? Let’s find out.
Is iPhone 11 worth buying in 2022?
iPhone 11 launched in 2019 along with iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. Unlike other premium models. The iPhone 11 will be offered with an LCD display and will be priced at a starting price of Rs. 64,900, it might not be the best deal. The current price is Rs. 31,269 too, there are better alternatives that come with AMOLED display and 120Hz refresh rate. So if you’re into watching media content or playing games, an LCD panel won’t cut it in 2022.
Another important factor to consider while buying the iPhone 11 is that it does not support 5G. To recall, only iPhone 12 and above models support 5G. So even after spending the premium, you will be missing out on one of the key features of the smartphone. Although 5G services are not currently available across the country, they are expected to be available by March 2024. You will pay Rs. 31,000, it’s a good idea to buy a future-ready phone.
Another area where the iPhone 11 falls behind is the camera. Rs. 32,999, Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, Realme GT 2, iQOO Neo 6 and Pixel 6a can click better pictures than iPhone 11. However, video recording on iPhone should be smoother and better thanks to 4K 60fps recording. Finally, the iPhone 11’s battery life isn’t all that great when compared to the competition’s larger 5000mAh units.
Thanks to the A13 Bionic SoC, the same chipset as the iPhone SE (2nd generation), performance should outshine the competition. However, the iPhone 11 has a clear design edge over the SE. So if you’re looking for a budget iPhone, the iPhone 11 is a great choice to start with. The iPhone 11 should get more iOS updates before the Cupertino giant ends software support.
