Digital Camera World Verdict

There’s a lot to like about the iPhone 11 Pro camera, which does a fantastic job of producing excellent images across all of its lenses. You won’t be treated to a vast array of shooting modes, but for just getting the shot in a variety of conditions it’s very, very good. The best iPhone ever for image quality, the iPhone 11 Pro, is certainly worth considering if you’re due an upgrade but, if you’re happy to use Android instead and the Huawei P30 Pro is available in your territory, it offers similar image quality with much greater flexibility at a better price.
