HTC U11

 

HTC U11 review, specs, release date and features: Does HTC's new flagship offer up a viable alternative to the iPhone 7, LG G6 and Samsung Galaxy S8?

Fast performance ; Above average camera ; Next to no bloatware ; Hi-Res Audio support great for audiophiles and Tidal users

Ugly design ; Lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack is a pain

The U11 is an excellent all-round smartphone that will meet 99% of people’s needs. I just wish it didn’t look so naff.

HTC U11 review: a colour changing phone you'll want to squeeze

 

HTC has gone back to its innovative roots with the HTC U11, and we love it

Slim, colourful design ; Squeezable edges ; Great camera

Not a standout display ; Camera slow ; Looks fragile

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

HTC U11 review

 

UPDATED: Amazon's Alexa is here - 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 ; Edge Sense a bit limited at launch

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: Flagship glory, with a gimmick squeezed in

 

HTC really does very little wrong in the HTC U11. This is a 2017 phone that's up there with the best, but we suspect that many will be distracted by

Unique colour designs that look eye-catching ; Lots of power for fluid operation ; Great sound quality ; Waterproofing

Battery life could be longer ; Edge Sense "squeeze" feature is a gimmick ; Sense Companion feels unnecessary

The HTC U11 brings with it some of the core components you want from a flagship: there's loads of power for a fast and fuss-free operation, a good display, great camera performance, and attention to detail in the audio offering which puts HTC above its...

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: Bluetooth 5.0 support incoming

 

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: In Depth

 

Our HTC U11 review examines every aspect of HTC's feature-packed 2017 flagship phone, from the fresh UltraPixel 3 camera to the all-new glass design.

Incredible performance ; Strong features ; World-class camera ; Impressive audio

No HDR

The HTC U11 is exactly the kind of flagship phone that the company needed to launch in 2017. It’s once again a highly enjoyable all-round experience, but feels fresh enough to stand out against earlier handsets and rival premium mobiles..

HTC U11 review: Should you pay extra for the Plus?

 

Shiny but pricey; HTC once again falls into the Samsung comparison trap

In short, the HTC U11 is a wonderful phone that I’d recommend to anyone. The fly in the ointment? It’s expensive and only £30 cheaper than the superior Samsung Galaxy S8 – the kind of discrepancy that will be invisible if you’re comparing two-year...
