iPhone 11 Pro Max UNBOXING (Midnight Green)
(upbeat music plays) – What's up guys, Saf here on SuperSaf TV and… it's here: the brand-new iPhone 11 Pro Max in Midnight Green Nice and early, SuperSaf style, a thumbs-up for that would be appreciated. Now, if you're interested in the regular iPhone 11, I do have those as well.
Ah, that video is gonna be going live straight after this one, so if you wanna make sure that you see that first and don't miss it, then be sure to subscribe and hit that bell icon. Let's get straight to the unboxing. This video is sponsored by Tech21. Get 10% off all cases
Using the special link in the description below. Right so, first up, the box is actually quite different to what we've had traditionally; it's actually in all black with a picture of the iPhone. I quite like the stealthy look; traditionally it has been white.
Plastic off, and look at that. This is, of course, the Midnight Green version. This is the one that most people wanted to see, but we also have a Space Gray, a Gold, as well as a Silver; I've covered those colors in my hands-on video, which I'll be linking in the cards and in the description.
Okay, I gotta say, I do like this matte finish; we'll come back to that later. Let's have a look at what else we get inside the box. So first up, there is some paperwork, some white Apple stickers; I really wish Apple would have color-coded stickers, so y'know, like
Midnight Green Apple stickers because we've got the Midnight Green iPhone, but, hey, maybe some day we'll have that. There's also a SIM card ejector tool. We've got some ear pods: these are Lightning ear pods. And then we've got some things that are a little bit different to what we've traditionally had. Firstly,
We've got a Lightning-to-USB-type-C cable. Traditionally, we've had a Lightning-to-USB-type-A cable, and there was a lot of people who were saying that, uh, "oh, the new iPhones are gonna have USB type C" and I was like, "nope, that's not gonna happen; it's gonna be on the other side, not the Lightning connector."
I mean, there's lots of accessories that currently still support Lightning, and it looks like Apple is gonna be holding onto it just a little bit longer. It also makes a lot of money for Apple as well, of course. But another reason why we've got Lightning to USB type C is because, finally, finally we have a fast-charger
Included out of the box. I mean, this is something that I've personally been complaining about for such a long time, that we should have had a fast-charger included since the iPhone X was released, and, you know, having to go out and buy a fast-charger
When you're already spending quite a decent amount on your iPhone is not great, so I'm glad that Apple has finally, now, decided to include an 18W fast-charger. With the iPhone 11 Pro, as well as the iPhone 11 Pro Max, of course, we still do have wireless charging supported;
That's around 7.5W, so it's the same speed as what we had last year. Let's get to the phone. Now, what's interesting is that usually we have plastic that covers both the back and the front of the device, but this time, it is only at the front, so screen protector off, I, it just fell on the table.
What a fail. Now let's start by looking at the display. At first glance, it does look very similar to what we've got on the iPhone XS Max, which I do have here. I should seriously work for Blue Peter, but anyway. So we've got the small bezel strip all round,
Along with that notch, so Apple haven't gone for a completely bezel-less design this year; it's something that we might see next year, but I really didn't expect Apple to go with a pop-up or something like that, what we've seen right now, or a punch-out. Er, so, the have stuck with the notch here.
Having said that, this is still a very, very good display. This has been improved compared to last year, and it's what Apple are calling a "Super-Retina XDR" display Now, the reason for that is that it's brighter, it's up to 800 nits, or if you're watching HDR content, because HDR 10 is supported, you can get up to 1200 nits
Of brightness. It's based on OLED technology, so colors are very, very vibrant. We've got very deep blacks, with a contrast ratio of 2,000,000:1. You've got around a 458 ppi pixel density, so details, also, very, very sharp. But, this year there is no 3D Touch so Apple have removed the 3D Touch layer. Er, for me, personally,
I don't think it's gonna be that much of a big deal because you can still access some of the 3D Touch features. It'll give you some haptic feedback when you press and hold on certain items. One area where I use it the most is on the keyboard to move my cursor round, and this is something you can still do by pressing
And holding on the space bar. It's something that I got quite used to using, the iPhone XR. So it's not gonna be a huge deal for me personally; it might be for you. Now let's move on the the back and look at the design. So it does look quite different compared to last year, here at the back. So, let me just bring in my iPhone XS Max,
Here. So there's a few things you'll notice right away, of course we have a very different camera module The Apple logo has also moved to the center on the iPhone 11 and we no longer have the iPhone logo here, towards the bottom like we had previously. Er, because we are here in the Uk, unfortunately, we do still
Have some of these labels. Although they are lot more faint on the new iPhone, which I do like. And the other big thing that you'll notice is that we've got a glossy glass back on the iPhone 10XS Max; on the 11 Pro Max, we've got this matte finish, which I really do like.
So this isn't gonna attract as many fingerprints as the glossy back on the iPhone 10S Max, however we do have a glossy element for the camera module. Now, this is actually still one piece of glass here at the back, so it's not like this glossy piece of glass has been stuck on or anything, Er, it is still part of the same glass
Making it durable. And Apple are saying that the glass on the iPhone 11's is the toughest glass on any smartphone right now, now this is something I'm personally not gonna be testing, because I don't do durability tests, but I'm sure my buddy Zack from JerryRigEverything is gonna be doing some durability tests. And we'll see
How touch this glass actually is. Now, for the frame, we do have a stainless steel frame, like we had previous years. We have an aluminium (or aluminum) frame on the iPhone 11 regular. And there is ip68 water and dust resistance, however this has been improved compared to last year, and now
You can dip this in water up to 4 meters, compared to 2 meters; that still comes under IP68, apparently, so maybe we can call it ip68.5? I don't know. But that is good to see that we've got these improvements. Now let's talk about the cameras; this is something I'm most excited about. Er, the camera module design, I wasn't
Too keen on when I saw all of the leaked renders, but in person it is growing on me a little bit. It is still not my preferred layout, but I'm sure there's some functional reasons why Apple has gone for this. And we, for the first time on an iPhone, have a triple camera setup. This is something that I was really hoping for,
And I'm excited we've got this camera setup here. All three of these are 12 megapixels; now let's break these down. There is a primary camera, which is gonna be used for all of your main shots; this has optical image stabilization with an f1.8 aperture. Then there is a telephoto camera, which is gonna give you
2X optical zoom. Now, we also had a telephoto camera last year, but the difference this year is that we've got a wider aperture; it's an f2.0 aperture, compared to the f2.4 that we had last year. That's gonna let in a lot more light; this also has optical image stabilization and is gonna be used for your portrait shots, which,
I really liked on the iPhone XS Max, so I can't wait to test these out. And then we've got something that I'm most excited about, and that is the Ultra-Wide. This has an f2.4 aperture and has a 120 degree angle of view Ultra-Wide cameras are something that I think all smartphones should have now, and they allow you to get
So much more into your shots; they let you get some very, very interesting results. I simply cannot wait to test out all of these cameras. Definitely let me know in the comments below which SuperSaf-style camera comparison you'd like me to do versus the iPhone 11 Pro Max. And make sure you have subscribed and hit that bell icon,
So as soon as it's live, you don't miss it. Now for the cameras, we also have some new features: we now have a dedicated Night Mode. This is something that we've seen lots of others do, perviously, and it's where you'll have multiple exposures to give you better low-light images. Once again something I'm really
Looking forward to testing. And then, the other thing that we've got is improvements in video: we've got up to 4K 60fps on all of these cameras. And, what's even more impressive is that we've got extended dynamic range on all of these cameras as well, up to 60 frames a second. Now, you guys may have heard me say before that, er,
Personally, when it comes to recording video on a smartphone I think the iPhones have the best quality, hands down. The dynamic range is so, so good, and everything just really works well. Now the we've got extended dynamic range, up to 4K 60fps, (stammers) I'm just like, you can tell, I'm just very, very
Excited to try these out. Now some of the camera features that didn't get too much attention at the Keynote. Er, firstly, photo captures outside the frame, so this is switched off by default but you can turn it on; and what that's gonna do is when you take a shot from the main camera,
It's also gonna take a shot from the Ultra-Wide, and this is gonna allow you to reframe your shots after the fact. Now as you can imagine that can potentially be very, very useful; and you've also got audio zoom, so if you're recording video and you zoom in, then it's gonna make that sound clearer. Er, it's something that we did see
On the Note 10 and the Note 10+, so, we'll see how it compares. Now let's talk a little bit about the front-facing camera, which has also been improved. This time we have 12 megapixels, so we've got a high resolution with an f2.2 aperture. And that higher resolution firstly means that
You're gonna be able to get 4K out and 60 frames a second from the front-facing camera as well, so if you're somebody who likes to vlog, then I'm sure this is gonna be great, great news. And, then we've got a slightly wider front-facing camera as well, so if you're on the front-facing camera; if you tilt the phone to landscape mode
It's gonna automatically go wider and that's gonna be shooting at 12 megapixels, otherwise it's gonna be sticking to around 7 megapixels. I quite like this; this is something that we've also got on the Galaxy devices from Samsung, because you don't always want a super wide shot. If you're just taking a shot of yourself, you don't want it
To go super wide and make things look a little bit distorted but if you've got a group shot, then it's nice to switch to that wide camera. You can also manually switch between these two depending on your preference. I'm definitely glad that Apple now have this, I will, of course, be testing this out a lot more.
There is also slow-motion from the front-facing camera, which Apple are calling "slowfies". Erm… I'm sure they're gonna be useful to some people, I- I, personally don't see myself using them. I don't wanna be negative about it because, I know there's gonna be some people out there who maybe have really long hair and wanna
Do some funky things. I'm not gonna- I mean, maybe I could, like, get a blow-dryer and… you know, just have my beard go- agh. No, I'm not gonna do it. (laughs) Now within the notch, here, as well, we do have an improved Face-ID sensor, so this is supposed to be around 30% faster,
I believe, and it's also supposed to work from more angles. It's not working from this flat angle here; I still have to tilt it up slightly. I'll compare it to the iPhone 10S Max, but it does seem to be improved. Slight- yeah, I mean, like, I'm only tilting it slightly and it's already working. So I'm not having to, like, kinda face it completely. Er, so
That has also been improved. We've got an earpiece here, which acts as one of the two stereo speakers. The other one is here, at the bottom, so we do have stereo speakers, but these have been improved, so we've got spatial audio this time, with support for Dolby Atmos. So if you're watching content on here a lot, then this is
Gonna give you more of an immersive experience. As well as that, on the bottom, we do have the Lightning port. On the right-hand side, there is a power button with a SIM card tray, so you do have space here for one SIM card, but you can get dual-SIM's using an e-SIM. And on the left-hand side, we have the volume buttons,
As well as the mute switch; nothing at the top. Now let's talk about the internals a little bit; we do have, of course, the brand-new latest and greatest Apple A13 Bionic chip. This is up to 20% faster compared to the A12 and consumes up to 30% less power. When it comes to graphics, the GPU is also up to 20% faster,
But is up to 40% more power-efficient, so this should give you better battery life, and Apple are claiming that you can get up to 5 hours more on this compared to the iPhone 10S Max. Now, of course, usage varies; I'm not sure of the exact size of the battery in here. The iPhone 11 Pro Max is also a little bit heavier compared
To the previous iPhones so I'm assuming it is a larger battery size as well. But, of course, I'll be testing this out in the long-term and I'll be giving you my thoughts on the battery life a little bit later on as well. When it comes to the A13, I'm confident that it's gonna be one of the fastest chipsets
Out there. Apple are claiming that it's the most powerful chipset in any smartphone right now. For software, we do have iOS 13 out of the box. There's a few features that I really do like on it. Er, on of my favorites is definitely Dark Mode, so you can switch to Dark Mode on here and that's gonna invert everything and make things a lot
Easier on the eyes. I can definitely see myself using this. There's lots of other features as well, which we'll cover a little bit more in the full review. Now, in terms of pricing and storage sizes, this still starts at 64GB. Now, of course, it would've been better if it started at somewhere around 128 gigs, because
I still think 64 gigs is not enough for people these days. Especially considering all of the 4K capabilities of this smartphone, it would have been nice to have seen a larger base model. So we've got the 64, 256, and 512GB versions, and they are priced a little bit higher compared to what we had last year
In the US, they are the same price as what we had on the iPhone 10S Max, and it seems like that is because of how bad the pound, the British pound, as been hit because of all this "Brexit" mess. So it's something that, I guess, er, was kind of expected. However you are gonna be paying a decent amount for these new iPhones. If you do go with
The 512 GB version, you're looking at around £1500. So, that is the iPhone 11 Pro Max unboxing and detailed first look. What do you guys think of it, and what content would you like me to do with this going forward? Definitely drop me a comment below and let me know your thoughts. In terms of my first
Impressions, er, the design has grown on me, I have to say. And I'm very, very excited to test out those cameras. I'm really looking forward to seeing how these will compare to some of the others out there. But, or course, there's gonna be lots more content coming up on here with the iPhone 11 Pro Max, as well as
