I am a heavy user, no games, my antenna gave out. I will give my thoughts on this $1249 phone.

Pluses-
Battery is the best ever, I can browse all day and still have 70% left. First phone I can go without a Mophie pack.
Camera is also the best ever
A13 Chip shines



Mixed-
Notch is not as annoying as people on the internet say it is, but you see it, when you read articles sometimes. Not that bad on videos.



What needs improvement
Some models had yellow tint (I see a faint one, I do not use True Tone)
Scratching issue (I have not had issue, and use Otter Box and Screen Protector)
More RAM and GB on entry level model
Wish the 2019 model had 5G

Bottom line-
This phone is like the I Pad Pro with OLED. This is the most refined Iphone ever. For people on the fence, 4 to 5 hours of battery life might be worth it if they can trade in, even from 10SMax.

Yes, and I was going to get a new phone next year. Wasn’t going to spend 700 for a 1 year phone. Mine just gave out 1 year early (Had 6s+).

I had the Galaxy S10 and Note 10+ before buying the 11 Pro. On the Galaxy I immediately disabled the notch, it looks very awkward and makes watching videos on YouTube very annoying. I don't know why on the iPhone I never even realized it's there until you mentioned it.

My phone rarely drains its battery as I am at an office or in a car
as a 6s plus owner. Ill wait

Just a question, since you mentioned Ram as something that needs improvement. Have you experienced many reloads?
