I must say I am quite impressed by this phone. I switched from android to iPhone few years back and haven't had any regrets since. For all the iOS haters, you need to spend reasonable time using an iPhone to realize it's potential. You'll never understand the experience unless you've used an iPhone for considerable amount of time.
Having a package deal of the h/w+s/w offered from the same source is great. It's like Google pixel devices where both the hardware and software is from the same manufacturer. It warrants your device for a few years with latest OS and security upgrades. Although Google has nailed the software part with Android, I feel they still have a long way to rival iPhone's hardware. So for now, I am happy enjoying iPhone's experience :)
I currently use iphone 11 and im unimpressed with its display. I compare its camera quality to an iphone 8 and the iphone 8 looks better because of its 1080 display. Iphone 11 is a good phone but the 720 display is one of the biggest flaw the phone has. Its slow charging is really annoying and it doesnt feel original when holding it. I think apple did not put in much effort when making this phone. At least the phone could have used a 1080 display. I dont feel confident when holding this phone. Im looking forward to getting an 11pro because in my opinion, iphone xs is far better than the iphone 11 in terms of originality, camera and display and also charging

For example, once a android makers modify from source, it becomes close, else any tom dick and harry can copy and dupe the same experience. All Google apps are also closed source.
Premium is not limited to just materials, its also includes support, software, core design, apps etc etc. Unfortunately, premium is always equated to worth of that extra money involved, thus subjected to personal opinion such as your own. But to most others, no rivals have match it yet, thus people continue to pay the premium price for the exclusivity.

As for the premium aspects, materials are fine, but the rivals match it already for years so nothing special. And yes, I also have an iPhone and multiple Android offerings in the premium to budget segments.
Aadrian, 22 Dec 2019Very true, the LG has better specs and way more value for money. But people's mind still think... moreIt is premium.. Its sourced components far exceed its rival's similar offerings.
Its hardware and software works seemlessly together to provide the premium feel.
It contains only 3110mAH battery, and yet that battery capacity rivals phones with much much bigger batteries.
Its LCD screen is on par with top of the line android flagships, without light bleeding.
Third party replacement LCD vs the OEM display, you can see the difference in thickness, functions and attention to details.
Everything must be built to specs, no cutting of corners allowed, as shown in all their accessories. MFi (Made for iDevices). All must pass their eyes before getting the approval.
App Store, blocks all forms of private API calls, no piracy, no unsafe apps allowed, as not to break user's experience.
All these and more, shows its premium status, and people willingness to shell out more money to buy.
But don't mix Apple with the likes of LV or Rolex. Apple do not use expensive materials like diamonds, rubies, gold or titanium (excludes the Apple watch edition with sapphire display).... Its built with normal materials and built with care and attention to details.. thats it.

That is why many people buy iPhone because it is reliable, long lasting and good ecosystem.
Anonymous, 05 Dec 2019Apple=overrated & overpriced. The LG G8X ThinQ beats the iPhone 11 in damn near all specs ... moreVery true, the LG has better specs and way more value for money. But people's mind still think it's premium. Like people buying a Mercedes thinking it's premium, while they can get much better and more reliable cars for half of the price. It's how it works in most people's mind.
Rezaailham, 21 Dec 2019I have used one week the results are satisfying, but it is rather hot when playing gamesMost unibody phones are getting hot when playing games. This phone's aluminium frame also conducts the heat so it's normal it heats up.
Fadli, 14 Dec 2019The screen to body ratio could have been 82%, cuz apple just reduced its resolution.Biggest bezels on the latest phones can be found on iphones. Earlier this week I had the iPhone 11, 11 pro and 11 pro max in my hands at a reatail store, and the bezels were ridiculously thick. My 2 year old Note8 has slimmer bezels. The bezels are thick and it has a huge notch on top, so that results in quite a poor screen to body ratio these days. I might wait for a price drop and purchase a red 11, to replace my iphone 6. My Note8 remains the daily driver because it has way more features and posibilities.

Good to go ahead. I just started with the apple family with 11 series.
Great phone, never regret buying. But I have great fear before buying.. because of the bad reviews everywhere, heat, slow charging, low specs, high price comments.
But after risking it and buying, i understand why iPhone price is so high.
Here is my comment: Everything look sharp and high contrast, even when it is LCD screen. It's battery life is super long, only 3101mah as stated in this website last 24hrs usage. Standby time is awesome.. i forgot to charge overnight.. the battery still stay the same. Gaming is no lag, smooth i play for 3hrs until i tired And the battery only drop 45%!!. Unlocking is soo much better then my old phone, fast and easy.
But i hope it does not slow down in the future because my old phone did that, even have problem launching the dialer.

My iPhone 6 was battery drains. Now I use Oppo brand with 20W VOOC, not battery drains, it even charge faster, 60 minutes fully charged.
NikiDroid, 18 Dec 2019Doesn't better phone. I am not new Apple iPhone consumer target.
Not always best phone too.... moreIt charges fast when required. It charges slowly in the last few percentage, it needs MFi cables and fast charge kicks in only a few minutes after charging to ensure safety.
When you are in a rush, you do not need to max the battery anyway, and should not compromise safety.
iPhone11 is efficient, it can even navigate and charge fully using a car 5watt charger. Said Android phones with much massive battery and charging will drain faster then charge with said 5w charger.
That is the price you have to pay for a product that look at all aspects of your safety and enjoyment. No corner cutting.
