On the optics front, you get a triple rear camera setup that is led by a 108MP primary Samsung HM2 sensor with an f/1.89 lens. It sits alongside an 8MP ultra-wide camera and a 2MP macro lens. On the front lies a 16MP selfie shooter. It packs a 4,500mAh dual-cell lithium polymer battery that supports 120W fast charging. Moreover, you get a compatible charger in the box.

The 204-gram phone comes in a glass body and has IP53 certification for dust and water resistance.

The 11i packs a single-cell 5,160mAh battery that supports a maximum of 67W charging It is priced at 24,999 Indian rupees, while the Hypercharge variant starts at 26,999 Indian rupees.

The best waterproof cases for the iPhone 11 Pro
iPhone 11 Pro Back

The Apple iPhone 11 Pro is the smallest of the iPhone 11 range, but don't underestimate it. The iPhone 11 Pro is equipped with a powerful A13 Bionic processor, and the tech underlying the 5.8-inch Super Retina XDR OLED is just as impressive as its larger brethren. The stainless steel frame is just as strong as the iPhone 11 Pro Max, and it comes with an IP68-rating for dust and water resistance. It's an impressive package for sure, but like everything, it has its limits.

The IP68 rating allows the iPhone 11 Pro to be fully immersed in fresh water and survive to tell the tale, but only for 30 minutes and up to 4 meters deep. While that might insulate it against slips into the pool or the bath, you're still going to want stronger protection if your iPhone is going to be immersed for longer. That's where waterproof cases come in, adding extra waterproofing to make sure your phone is able to survive. We've covered the best iPhone 11 Pro cases before, but the cases on this list don't just protect against bumps and scratches, they extend or reinforce the iPhone's water resistance. These are the best waterproof cases for the iPhone 11 Pro around right now.

The best iPhone 11 Pro Max screen protectors

With the rising popularity of phablet-sized smartphones, screen protectors are less of a luxury and more of a first line of defense. Apple's iPhone 11 Pro Max -- with its 6.5-inch, 2688 × 1242 pixel resolution OLED screen -- is among the largest of iPhones, so you don't want to leave it vulnerable to drops, bumps, and damaging impacts.

Though the iPhone has scratch-resistant glass with an oleophobic coating, a second layer of protection can't hurt. Some screen protectors add "anti-theft" features that limit visibility for third parties, while most glass protectors feature the 9H hardness rating, a basic scratch test using the hardest lead pencil point (9H) against the glass. Any substance harder than your screen will cause scratches to appear on your smartphone glass.

The best iPhone 11 Pro Max cases and covers

It's safe to say that the iPhone 11 Pro Max is an incredible phone. It's powerful, beautiful, and comes with one of the best cameras you'll find in a smartphone. But it's made from glass, and that glass is fragile, so an unfortunate bump or spill can leave your device with scuffs or -- worse -- cracks and neither of those is particularly welcome on a $1,000 smartphone. Thankfully, there's an easy solution to this, and that's to fit your phone with a protective case.

But there's no one-case-fits-all solution, and you'll need to do a little shopping around before you find your perfect case. Don't worry, though -- we've made your choice a little simpler by finding you some of the best cases to keep your iPhone 11 Pro Max safe.
