iPhone 11 vs iPhone 11 Pro

iPhone 11 vs iPhone 11 Pro

Apple announced its trio of iPhones line-up at an event in September 2019, but are you able to tell the models apart? Don’t worry if you don’t know the features of each model as you’re not alone. In this post, we will take a look at everything that’s different and the same on the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro so you can know how the two phones stack up. 

Design

Measuring 75.7 x 150.9 x 8.3mm, the iPhone 11 features an aluminium and glass body that comes in a number of colour variants including purple, green, black, yellow, white and red variants. In contrast, the iPhone 11 Pro has a more sophisticated look as it rocks stainless steel for the frame and a matte finish. It measures 71.4 x 14 x 81.mm and is available in traditional choices like midnight green, space grey, silver and gold.

Display 

While the phone may look the same, they have two different panels with the iPhone 11 sporting a 6.1-inch Liquid Retina LCD display while the iPhone 11 Pro features a 5.8-inch Super Retina screen. As expected, the display on the iPhone 11 is stunning in terms of colour accuracy, brightness and details, but not as much as the higher Super Retina XDR display.

iPhone 11 vs iPhone 11 Pro

Performance 

Both iPhones are powered by Apple’s new A13 Bionic processor, which is fast and power-efficient. Tests show that the processors are the fastest CPU and GPU in a smartphone, so you can expect an excellent performance from both phones. 

Camera

One of the main differences between both models is their camera capabilities. The iPhone 11 has a dual-camera- – a 12-MP ultra-wide lens with an aperture of f/2.4 while the wide lens has an aperture of f/1.8. Those two cameras return on the iPhone 11 Pro but with a third 12-MP sensor along with a telephoto lens offering an aperture of f/2.0. 

Battery Life 

The battery capacity on both models has been given a boost to make them better than the iPhone XR, which was the longest-lasting battery of the previous year. Now, the iPhone 11 lasts one hour longer than the iPhone XR while the iPhone 11 Pro offers 4 hours of battery juice more than the iPhone XS. Additionally, both models offer wireless charging but the iPhone 11 pro charges faster, thanks to its 18-watt charger.

Water Resistance 

As you may expect, all models are rated for the highest IP68 water resistance, which means they can stay for up to 30 meters in 2 meters of water without any worries. However, the iPhone 11 Pro offers something better as you can dip it into 4 meters of water with no ill effects. 

Storage 

Nothing changed about the storage tiers of both models, as shown below:

  • iPhone 11: 64GB/129GB/256GB
  • iPhone 11 Pro: 64GB/256GB/512GB

Price 

Pricing between the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro models unsurprisingly differs as the latter is $300 more expensive than the former. 

Wrap-up 

The two iPhone models offer great value for money even though their specs and pricing differ. Leveraging the above comparison, you can go now ahead and purchase whichever model is suitable for you.

PS5 Rumors: What We Can Expect From Sony’s Next-Gen Console

PS5 Rumors: What We Can Expect From Sony’s Next-Gen Console

Grab your friends and start fluffing your couch cushions because Playstation 5 is coming!

But don’t start the popcorn. It’s coming, but we’re still in for a bit of a wait. Rumors about Sony’s highly-anticipated next-generation console are beginning to bubble up, and it would appear the PS5 will be coming to a store near you sometime in the middle of next year. We can make it a year, right?

We’ve been looking into what’s being said about the console, and while not everything is set in stone, there’s enough confirmed information out there to begin getting excited about what’s shaping up to be a beast of a console.

PS5 Rumor

Playstation 5 Specs

Looking under the hood we find some pretty impressive hardware. The console’s built around a smoking fast eight-core AMD Ryzen CPU that’s based on their latest 7nm Zen 2 architecture. It boasts a bespoke, Radeon Navi-based GPU capable of dishing out ray-traced renders at resolutions up to 8K.

This will be the first time we’re seeing ray-traced rendering in a game console. Ray tracing creates much more accurate lighting than can be achieved by standard rendering methods, creating stunningly photorealistic images. This promises that PS5 titles will be jaw-droppingly beautiful.

The machine is also set to include an internal SSD (solid-state drive) so load times won’t be held up by slow storage technology. While it’s confirmed that games will still be delivered by disc, cloud streaming is rumored to be a part of the offerings and could provide competition to Google’s Stadia product. Interestingly, it’s rumored that Sony and Microsoft are working together to develop shared cloud technologies, so how we’re excited to see how streaming is implemented.

Performance

Graphics up to 8K will be supported, and it has been confirmed that the Playstation 5 will deliver what many gamers have been hoping for some time, 4K graphics at a 120Hz refresh rate. This will deliver incredibly smooth playback on displays capable of faster refresh speeds.

The system’s audio performance should be equally impressive, delivering powerful 3D sound. Add to this support for Sony’s PSVR virtual reality hardware and the PS5 is primed to deliver a truly immersive gaming experience.

The system will be backward compatible with PS4 games, which is great news, but it’s not yet certain whether older titles will enjoy better graphics and/or performance running on this newer technology.

The Rest of It

There are a bunch of exciting features we’re looking forward to on the PS5. Sources report that game saves will be transferable between consoles, so you can grab your game from home and bring it to a friend’s place to pick up where you left off.

If cloud streaming winds up a large part of the console experience, and most analysts agree a punched-up version of Playstation Now will drive the platform, expect a seamless online gaming experience.

Of course, all of this power doesn’t come cheap, and most sources seem to agree that the PS5’s launch price will be higher than what we saw when the PS4 hit the market. Right now analysts expect we’ll be shelling out $499 to plant one of these in our entertainment center. Totally worth it.

Check back for developments as the launch date gets closer!

Bagging – A Process to Kill the Roaches and Fix the Damage of Video Game

Here at Videogamerepair.org we have been getting a lot of broken systems that appear to be breaking for no reason. After a quick inspection of the system, our curious customers receive an answer as to why their system is not working and that answer would be Cockroaches.Video game systems are the perfect breeding ground and hiding place for cockroaches. Its dark, warm and there are no people to squash them. Damage from cockroach infestation can be severe, irreversible and expensive. In most cases it is just better to dispose of the system and then to have an exterminator at the house.At Videogamerepair.org we have had experience with a good handful of these infested systems and have a system for exterminating the roaches and then repairing the damage.The first step is to kill off all of the roaches in a process we call bagging. Place the system in a garbage bag and then put a paper towel that is drenched with rubbing alcohol on top of it. Seal the bag with a rubber band and make sure no air can get in or out. Leave the system for 3 days to ensure that they are all dead.When you return, there may be cockroaches outside the system the tried to escape but they should all be dead. The next step is to put gloves on, nobody said video game repair was glamorous and in these situations its going to get nasty, so gloves, rubbing alcohol and hand sanitizer is essential. If the system is not powering on replacing the PSU should bring it back to life. Make sure to dispose of any old parts as they may be harboring eggs. Clean all ports with rubbing alcohol and a toothbrush as cockroaches and their feces may be blocking connections. Last but not least clean the laser. Chances are the roaches have dirtied the lens making it unable to read discs.

Nintendo Entertainment System – New Revolution in the Gaming Industry

Nintendo released the Nintendo Entertainment System in North America on October 18, 1985. It revolutionized the gaming industry and provided hours of entertainment to kids and adults alike for years. It paved the way for modern gaming as we know it. Today, many gamers want to either relive their childhoods and go back to their roots, many younger gamers simply want to see where what they play today came from. Locating and NES is not difficult seeing as how 34 million units were sold in the United States alone. However, after 28 years most NES consoles have difficulty playing games and functioning properly.The most common and biggest issue players run into with the NES is the red flashing light error. This error is caused by a combination of things one of them is the 72 pin connector which is the part that the pins on the cartridge connect to on the system. Over the years these become rusty or even bent. This bad connection then corresponds to the NES lockout chip, which was installed in the system to lock out European games and cause the system to restart itself continuously. At Videogamerepair.org we replace the pin connector and disable the lockout chip all for $30.

Different Effective Ways to Get the old Games to Work

Different Effective Ways to Get the old Games to Work

Throughout the years gamers have come up with various ways to get their old games to work. Some would recommend blowing in them, others would say spray discs with windex. There are many various tricks that get games playing, heres a list of various methods that we use here at the shop.With Cartridge games the first thing you should always do is clean the pins. Using a Q-tip and rubbing alcohol rub the pins and the plastic surrounding them to remove all dust and dirt. If there is any green corrosion and nail file can be used to remove it.The Super Nintendo and Nintendo 64 can have the pins on the actual consoles cleaned. Simply wrap a paper towel around a credit card and dampen it with alcohol. Rub the card inside the systems pins to remove dirt and grime that can be preventing games from being read. A toothbrush is another good tool for cleaning pins on systems.Sometimes a cleaned NES cart isn’t enough. A trick used by many to get games to play is in the way you insert it into the console. When inserting it into the console, push it down the whole way in and let it slam down from the plastic. This usually gets it a better connection.
