HTC U11 Life

 

HTC U11 Life review: Can HTC's Android One effort be the Android budget champion?

Decent battery life ; Screen is mostly good

Terrible software ; Irritating notification light

The U11 Life is a decent mid-range handset let down by software issues

HTC U11 Life review

 

Android One arrives in style

Great mid-range screen ; Decent camera ; Stock OS

Mediocre battery life ; No headphone jack ; Expensive for Android One

An affordable way to get stock Android 8, with a capable camera and great design to boot - although battery life could be better

HTC U11 Life review: The ups and downs of Life

 

Overall, the HTC U11 Life is a logical mid-level reflection of its already very capable flagship bigger brother. It's more attractive than some of its

Attractive design (especially in blue) ; Dust and water-resistant design adds a point of difference to other mid-rangers ; Android One means pure Android operation ; Reasonably good gimmick-free camera

Battery life is quite poor ; Rear panel is a fingerprint magnet ; The Edge Sense "squeeze" control feels unnecessary ; Quite expensive given the strong competition ; Not compatible with USB-C-to-3.5mm converter

Overall, the HTC U11 Life is a logical mid-level reflection of its already very capable flagship bigger brother. It's more attractive than some of its nearest competition, such as the Moto X4, while offering dust and water-resistance that few others...

HTC U11 Life review

 

Because in life we can't all spend $500/£500+ on a phone

Great camera HDR ; Good screen ; Clean Android software

Mediocre battery life ; Plastic shell ; No headphone jack

The HTC U11 Life is a smart trimming down of the HTC U11 that gets you most of the highlights at a lower price, but other phones offer more for a similar amount of money.

HTC U11 Life review: HTC’s flashy Android One smartphone

 

The HTC U11 Life offers a stripped down, cheaper alternative to the U11, but at £349 it's far too expensive

Luscious design ; Phenomenal selfie camera ; Android One experience

No 3.5mm headphone jack ; Lackluster performance ; Too expensive

In the end, though, it just misses out on a recommendation and that’s all down to the strength of the competition at this price. The Honor 9, for instance, will cost you only £30 more and beats it for all-round performance, while the Motorola Z2 Play...

HTC U11 Life Review: Familiar Face, New Talents

 

HTC U11 Life review: If you're at all familiar with the forgettable and underwhelming HTC U Play from the start of 2017 then you'll instantly...

Premium features, mid-range price ; Eye-catching design ; Android One benefits

Weak gaming performance ; Average cameras ; Small battery

The HTC U11 Life does a respectable job of emulating its flagship forerunner, making good on the promise of hitting the majority of the standard U11’s key selling points whilst also sporting some obvious cutbacks that don’t undermine the overall...

HTC U11 Life's Achilles heel: Its camera

 

The even cheaper Moto G5 Plus camera comes out on top.

The HTC U11 Life is like a cheaper Pixel 2 with its squeezable sides. It's attractive, affordable, fully water-resistant and has decent midrange specs.

Camera quality is hit or miss and battery life is on the short side.

HTC's U11 Life is a decent midrange phone, but the Moto G5 Plus shoots better photos for a little less.

HTC U11 Life

 

HTC's new phone is like a U11 Mini with Android One making it a simple and solid mid-range phone. There's tough competition from some rivals though.

HTC U11 Life review: Hands-on with HTC’s budget squeeze

 

A budget phone with elements of the high-end – HTC could be onto a winner with its latest handset

The one thing I haven’t covered so far is the price. It's a highly reasonable £349 but, at that price, there is some pretty strong competition. Phones like the Honor 9, the Motorola Moto Z2 Play and the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) all offer strong...

HTC U11 Life review

 

The Android One partnership has been keeping us busy lately. It was Xiaomi that kicked off the midrange One devices, Moto joined with the X4 and now the HTC U11 Life is hot on their heels. Trendy design, a big and high-res screen, a reliable processor...
