HTC U11 smartphone review: A sensible, everyday flagship with a great camera - Tech2

 

The company's latest flagship, the HTC U11, is now out and I'm happy to say, is competing with this year's flagships on a level playing field.

In a market flooded with phones, where flagships are few and far between and where gimmicks are perceived as the way forward, HTC has come up with a phone that is quiet, sensible, and gets the basics (except the vibration motor) right.

HTC U11 review: The flagship with a squeezy edge

 

HTC U11 full review: HTC U11 is a stylish phone, also it is a flashy phone. This is a phone that feels so good you would want to squeeze it. From high-end gaming to simple multi-tasking and 4K video recording this is a phone that can do it all. It is a...

HTC U11 Review

 

The HTC U11 is a great smartphone, but it misses out on some new technologies and more, against flagships like the Galaxy S8.

Extremely fast and smooth ; Great camera ; Rich audio experience

Battery life could have been better ; Edge Sense isn't very useful ; Design doesn't feel as premium as advertised ; Lacks future-facing tech, like HDR support

The HTC U11 is an extremely fast smartphone with a great camera. It's the best HTC fans can get right now, but it loses out in terms of premium feel and future-facing technology in the current flagship market. It's good, but not good enough.

HTC U11 review

 

Squeeze-able sides shows HTC likes to live life on the Edge(Sense)

Gorgeous glass is a real attention-grabber ; Plenty of performance, but with great battery life ; Loudest smartphone speakers around, and noise-cancelling in-ears are a great bonus ; Camera quality is top-notch

Colours aside, design doesn't exactly stand out ; Camera can’t quite match rivals for speed ; No headphone jack is annoying, even with an adapter in the box

Unique features and a delectable design help the U11 stand out, but don’t quite do enough to usurp Samsung’s Galaxy S8 as the 2017 smartphone to beat

HTC U11 review

 

A unique phone with great audio performance

Great camera ; Excellent audio performance ; Impressive two-tone coloring

Edge Sense is half-baked ; Screen slightly dim ; Camera shutter speed slow

The HTC U11 is a wildly impressive phone - in a sea of wildly impressive phones. The core abilities will wow any HTC fan, but the squeezable sides really fail to impress.

HTC U11 Smartphone Review

 

Full steam ahead. HTC attempts to mix it up at the top with the new flagship smartphone U11. The company incorporates lots of high tech into an extraordinary case which not only looks different, but also features a unique and pressure-sensitive frame...

unusual range of colors ; fast Snapdragon processor ; UFS 2.1 storage ; great camera ; accurate GPS ; good display ; storage is expandable ; Gigabit-LTE ; fast USB port with video out ; great headset ; IP certified

SoC throttling under load ; microSD slot is just average ; doesn't support aptX ; not all functions available when recording video

Despite the fact that HTC didn't modify the design too much, the U11 looks distinctly different than the HTC 10 and other competitors thanks to different materials and the extraordinary color choices. From a technical standpoint, the smartphone is at...

HTC U11 review

 

An in-depth review of HTC's new U11 flagship phone for 2017. Take a look at its ever changing colour and find out why you can squeeze it.

There's a lot to like about the HTC U11 and while it certainly has flagship level specs, it's hard to differentiate in the market against the likes of Samsung and LG. The glossy and colourful design is fresh but won't be for everyone, even though we're...

HTC U11 review

 

A unique style and squeezable sides prove HTC still knows how to innovate.

Great camera ; Alexa support ; Slick performance ; Good battery life

No 3.5mm audio jack ; Bulky body

We’re conflicted on the HTC U11 design. The liquid glass finish is gorgeous and the build quality is generally high, but fingerprint smudges quickly spoil it. The U11 also feels big, with an average display that has too much border around it.
