HTC U11+ review

 

HTC U11+ (Plus) review: Is it worth the upgrade?

Great screen ; Good camera ; Large battery ; Runs latest Android version

Uses last year's parts ; Only a minor upgrade on the regular U11

Battery life is the second area in which the U11+ seriously improves on the U11. HTC’s upped the U11+’s battery capacity to 3930mAh, which is a marked improvement on the original’s 3000mAh cell.

HTC U11+ review

 

HTC U11+ could have been the next big Pixel, but it just wasn't meant to be. Instead, it became the next squeezable HTC flagship fully equipped to compete with Google's XL sequel. Underdog or not, the HTC U11+ has the dog tags of a fighter.

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.

HTC U11 review: More than just gimmicks

 

We know it's shiny, but don't let its looks distract you. After a seriously underwhelming showing with the U Ultra, HTC refined its smartphone formula and pushed out the U11, a gimmick-laden flagship that's actually worth using. The pressure-sensitive...

Excellent cameras ; Lots of horsepower ; Multiple AI assistants to choose from ; Finally, a water-resistant HTC phone ; Edge Sense works

Glass design is slippery and fragile ; Battery life could be better ; No headphone jack ; The Sense interface is getting old

HTC didn't get everything right with the U11, but it nailed a whole lot more than I ever expected it to. That's a big deal. After the mess that was the U Ultra, I was honestly unsure whether the company would ever drag itself out of its doldrums. The...

HTC U11

 

2017 has already been a fantastic year for phones, with the Samsung Galaxy S8, LG G6 and Moto G5 all impressing. But now it's HTC's turn, and it's fair to say the Taiwanese company's taking things seriously.

HTC U11 is a cheaper HTC U12 Plus alternative

 

HTC's U11 might be a year old, but it's still a solid phone for buyers who want a taste of HTC's squeezable sides.

The HTC U11 gives you excellent performance, a gorgeous design, water resistance and a big-screen for much less than the HTC U12 Plus.

The HTC U11’s squeezable sides feel more gimmicky than novel, as does HTC's virtual assistant. The stunning glass rear is prone to smudging, and the battery felt very thirsty.

For a stylish design and solid performance, the HTC U11 is a discount over the U12 Plus, though power users will be drawn to the U12 Plus' more robust squeezing features.

HTC U11 Plus review: when more is less

 

We review the HTC U11 Plus, the phone that was once intended to become the Google Pixel 2 XL

Only camera that can rival the Pixel ; HTC’s smallest bezels in years ; Big battery ; Smooth performance ; Good speakers

Inelegant, chunky design ; Slippery to grip ; Display lacks color accuracy ; Battery doesn’t last that much longer in actual use ; Ugly and intrusive bloatware

Be careful what you wish for

HTC U11+ review: a powerful and stylish flagship that you're (probably) not going to buy

 

Powerful, stylish and innovative, but released a little too late to matter, the HTC U11+ plays all the right notes at the wrong time

Absolutely stunning glass body ; Excellent camera ; Powerful hardware ; Innovative Sense UI ; Capacious 18:9, 6-inch screen ; Lighting-fast fingerprint scanner

Average battery life ; Screen isn't as bright as competitors ; Only available from HTC

HTC U11 review

 

It's getting harder and harder to make an impression when it feels like every major phone manufacturer is gunning for the super-powered, top-tier flagship title. The HTC U11 ( $589.00 at Amazon.com ) has tried to get you to sit up and take notice with...

It’s a performance monster, it’s gorgeous front and back, it’s water-resistant, it’s big-screen. The HTC U11 ticks the boxes that matter.

The HTC U11’s squeezable sides feel more gimmicky than novel, as does HTC's virtual assistant. The stunning glass rear is prone to smudging, and the battery felt very thirsty.

You won’t be picking this one up for squeezable sides. You’ll be picking up the HTC U11 for the performance and the design.
