iPhone 7 Plus vs iPhone 11 Comparison

iPhone 7 Plus vs iPhone 11: The biggest difference is the chip

Here’s the most important thing to remember when comparing the iPhone 11 vs iPhone 7 Plus: the A13 Bionic chip in the iPhone 11 is 3 years newer than the A10 Fusion in the iPhone 7 Plus.

Every year, Apple releases a new chip that’s at least 30% faster than the last one from the previous year, so you can imagine how much of a leap forward the A13 Bionic is when compared to the A10 Fusion.

Thanks to the newer chip, you can expect apps and web pages to load twice as fast (but please keep in mind, if you’re loading web pages, a weak Internet connection will severely slow down any smartphone).

Other than the huge performance boost, that A13 Bionic chip will also give you significantly improved photography and video performance. This is thanks to the fact that every new Apple chip has new tricks up its sleeve for processing images. You’ll notice better colours, details, and low-light performance (the Night mode on the iPhone 11 seriously rocks).

iPhone 7 Plus size compared to iPhone 11

The dimensions of the iPhone 7 Plus are:

Height: 158.2 mm

Width: 77.9 mm

Depth: 7.3 mm 

Weight: 188 grams

The base model iPhone 11 sizes up as follows:

Height: 150.9 mm

Width: 71.4 mm

Depth: 8.1 mm

Weight: 188 grams

This makes the iPhone 11 height and width smaller, but the iPhone 7 Plus is a bit thinner and weighs the same. 

Of course, this doesn't mean both phones look the exact same. The iPhone 7 Plus screen size is smaller and the iPhone's resolution in the 7 Plus vs 11 -- noticeably less sharp and vivid in the former. 

It's a bit funny looking at old Plus models since they're now just as big as the standard models. There isn't a huge difference looking at the iPhone 12 vs iPhone 11 size difference, but we'll see if the base iPhones become Pro Max size in a few years. 

iPhone 7 Plus vs 11: What other improvements can you expect from the iPhone 11?

As noted, if you compare the dimensions of the iPhone 11 vs 7 Plus, you’ll realize that the iPhone 7 Plus is taller and wider, yet has a smaller screen. This is because the screen on the iPhone 11 stretches to all the edges of the device, and has a notched cutout to accommodate the front-facing cameras and face unlock scanners.

On the other hand, the iPhone 7 Plus screen has a huge border above and below the screen. And even though the iPhone 11 is more compact—except for being a few millimetres thicker—it’s still able to house a larger battery than the iPhone 7 Plus (3110mAh vs 2900mAh).

iPhone 7 Plus vs iPhone 11: Summing it all up

So there you have it, those are the biggest differences between the iPhone 7 Plus vs iPhone 11. There is nothing wrong about still purchasing an iPhone 7 Plus now, we just wanted to let you know how much better of a phone the iPhone 11 is. But it does come at a higher cost, so if you really need an iPhone on a budget, don’t hesitate to buy a refurbished iPhone 7 Plus.
