Expert review by: Sascha Segan (



The HTC U11 for Sprint is the best music phone around, and its unusual squeeze sensor is a fun new way to interact with a mobile device.

Excellent audio quality. Useful squeeze sensor. Gigabit LTE. Fast processor. Alexa compatible.

Camera doesn't measure up to its marketing. No headphone jack. Back panel attracts fingerprints.

HTC has spun out a confusing and unconvincing set of phones so far this year. Seeing the U11, clearly HTC's flagship, I wonder why the HTC U Ultra and HTC U Play came out at all—although they didn't fully come out in the US, with neither phone getting...

HTC U11 first look: Stunning hardware, advanced audio, and a camera that may be the best


HTC led the smartphone industry with unibody aluminum phones a few years ago, but has now switched to the glass panels and metal frames we see on other phones. HTC makes its phones look better with liquid surface and brilliant colors.

HTC U11 Review


There's no one “right” way to make a smartphone, and that's probably more apparent with this year's selection of new handsets than any batch in recent memory. We've got exceptionally widescreen phones, phones with hardware keyboards, and even those...

Effortless, high-quality camera ; Fantastic performance ; Battery life worth writing home about ; Some really attractive color options (though the best are non-US) ; New BoomSound speakers sound nice and satisfying

Dated look ; Noise-canceling earbuds aren't quite as impressive as they could be ; Edge Sense feels over-engineered (for what could be just a button) ; Fancy audio-recording features difficult to appreciate

The HTC U11 is somewhat of a phone unstuck in time. It's got all the processing might of any 2017 flagship, offers a modern, quite useful digital assistant, and dips its toes in high-tech features like active noise cancellations. But it's also a phone...

HTC U11 Review: Our New Squeeze


Things have been rough for HTC on the smartphone front. Four years ago, we all lusted after the excellent HTC One (aka. M7), which pioneered the seamless aluminum unibody commonplace today and brought OIS and quality audio to Android. The One M8...

HTC U11 Review: The Best Phone HTC Has Made in Years


HTC can keep its Sense Companion and its squeezable Edge Sense controls. Those features work as advertised, but I don't need 'em. The things that really makes the U11 stand out are its unique jewel-like design, thumping BoomSound speakers, superb...

Class-leading performance ; Bright, 5.5-inch QHD display ; Fantastic BoomSound speakers ; Gorgeous design with IP67 water resistance

Average battery life ; No headphone jack ; A bit bulky

With top-notch performance, a stunningly good rear camera and a unique, eye-catching design, the U11 is the best phone HTC has made in years.

Review: HTC U11


The U11 is HTC's flagship smartphone for 2017. It competes directly with the iPhone 7 Plus, G6, and Galaxy S8+. HTC has always offered a unique experience on its handsets, and the U11 dials the unique factor up to, er, 11 with features like Edge Sense...

HTC gets so much right with the U11, and yet still manages to trip itself up in a few places. There's no question the design is eye-popping. That mirror-finished rear glass panel is purity defined. I wish the phone's shape and front face were even half...

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 review: Solar red version now available in UK


HTC's U11 is a welcome return to form for HTC, but is it enough to overhaul the Google Pixel XL or the Samsung Galaxy S8?

Superb camera ; Gorgeous design ; Expandable storage

Almost as expensive as Galaxy S8 ; Screen is only okay ; Edge sense isn't all that useful

However, these are small things I’d be perfectly prepared to live with. The HTC U11 is right up there with the very best smartphones around; it’s a phone that should put HTC right back on the map.

HTC U11 review


Not the most innovative phone of 2017, but likely to be one of the best

Solid build ; Stunning screen ; Fast performance ; Great camera

No headphone jack ; Music could be more engaging ; Battery life ok at best

Not the most exciting or innovative new smartphone, but decent sound and video performance mean it's one of the best of 2017

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.
