IPhone 11 features taken from Android

TEKNOKU.me – Trio of the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max have been launched at Apple’s headquarters in the US a few days ago. These three phones have a number of innovations that are comparatively new to Apple phones.

However, in fact, some of the brand-new features were “taken” from Android, which was already present on Google’s mobile platform.

The triple-camera concept carried by the iPhone 11 Pro, for example, has already been applied in several Android phones and was popularized by the Huawei P20 Pro which was released in April last year, followed by the LG V40 ThinQ and other manufacturers.

The wide, ultra-wide, and telephoto camera configurations on the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max are now commonplace in today’s Android flagship, such as the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Huawei P30.

Still, from the camera features, the night mode feature that comes first in the ranks of the iPhone 11 series is also similar to features on various Android phones, such as Night Sight on Google Pixel phones and Night Mode on Samsung Galaxy smartphones.

Night mode became popular after being carried by the Huawei P20 series last year. Afterward, the night mode is widely applied to Android phones. Not only the upper class but also mid-range phones.

The functions and workings of the Night Mode of the iPhone 11 are more or less similar to those on Android, which makes photos in dark conditions brighter by shooting multiple frames with different exposure levels, then combined into one image.

There are also other features that already exist in most Android flagship smartphones, such as water and dust resistance with IP68 certificates and internal memory with a relief capacity.

Uniquely, for the first time in the iPhone series, Apple includes a fast charging adapter that is packaged in a sales box, aka not sold separately.

Even then, only the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max are getting an 18-watt fast charger. iPhone 11 users still have to survive with a 5-watt old charger.

Although the cell phone itself has supported “fast charging” since a few years ago, so far in the Apple iPhone sales package only includes a low-power charger that is not able to charge batteries quickly.

Conversely, Android phones that support the fast charging feature usually include the appropriate charger on the package, so that it can be directly used by users without having to spend more.
