iPhone 11 Pro Max versus its Android competitors


The new iPhone 11 Pro Max is the new big boy in Apple’s 2019 smartphone lineup, sporting a 6.5-inch display with an impressive 1242 x 2688 pixel resolution which gives it a 458 ppi. It’s not exactly as crisp as Android devices with QHD+ panels, but it’s pretty close.

While there are a lot of large Android smartphones these days, the main competitors to the Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max are the OnePlus 7 Pro, Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ and the Pixel 3 XL. The Note 10+ and the iPhone 11 Pro Max share the same $1,099 price point, but the Pixel 3XL is $200 cheaper while the OnePlus 7 Pro is $400 less. Like the iPhone 11 Pro, the 11 Pro Max also comes with 3 cameras on the back with standard, ultra-wide and telephoto lenses. Adding more sensors and lenses doesn’t necessarily mean that the phone will take better pictures, but Apple made a big deal about its new phone using computational photography to deliver better images, along with a low-light photography setting which could give the Pixel 3 XL a run for its money.

Below is a side-by-side comparison of the specs from the iPhone 11 Pro Max, Pixel 3 XL, Galaxy Note 10+ and OnePlus 7 Pro. Based on the price and hardware of the iPhone 11 Pro Max, do you think Apple’s new flagship smartphone will be able to compete head-to-head with the best that Android has to offer?
