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

 

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 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 ( $649.00 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.

HTC U11 review: A powerful Android phone that knows how to have fun

 

The HTC U11 fixes many of the U Ultra's problems, and adds a killer chip, a great camera, and a super-fun gimmick.

Fixes most of the U Ultra's problems. ; Edge Sense is a fun way to launch apps. ; Incredibly fast with a great camera.

Battery life is only OK. ; No headphone jack.

HTC U11 review: feeling the squeeze

 

A silly gimmick doesn't get in the way of the U11's strengths

Gorgeous design ; Impeccable fit and finish ; Blistering performance

Lack of a headphone jack is a nuisance ; Squeeze feature is a complete gimmick ; Not offered by 3 of the 4 major US carriers

The U11 is priced right in the premium sector, where companies do differentiate with useful and innovative ideas. It doesn’t have many of the forward-looking features of its competition, but at its base it is a very good smartphone in a very pretty...

HTC U11

 

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 Review: You won’t buy this, but you should

 

HTC learned the hard way that, in the cutthroat smartphone industry, you need to bring your A-game each and every time. Make a misstep and, though recovery isn't impossible, it'll cost you dearly - cash that HTC just doesn't have to splash around. The...

The HTC U11 is a seriously good phone. HTC has combined beautiful design, superlative build quality, thoughtful features, and a restrained customization of Android. Problem is, I suspect few will ever actually see one. It’s fair to say that HTC is...

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.
