HTC U12 Plus


HTC U12 Plus review, price, release date, features: Does HTC's new squeezable flagship do enough to make it better than the competition?

Takes great day and night photos ; Strong audio ; Good for those who hate the notch

Terrible ‘buttons’ that make the phone unusable at times ; Big and heavy without having exceptional battery life ; Screen not as good as competing OLEDs ; Edge Sense has issues

The HTC U12 Plus is far from the slimmest phone around, which for me isn’t an issue if the battery life were to impress. Sadly, it isn’t quite as good as expected.

HTC U12+ review: an innovative, premium, and flawed phone for tech enthusiasts


The successor to the HTC U11+ is here. Find out if it is the right Android flagship for you now…

Clean and premium 3D glass design ; Very strong internal hardware suite ; Useful Edge Sense 2 controls ; Dual LTE SIM card slot ; IP68 waterproof rating ; Dual-camera secured face unlock ; Full-featured, powerful camera system

Haptic buttons need another pass ; Battery life is disappointingly standard ; Screen brightness is so-so ; Lack of carriers

HTC U12+ review


HTC gives up chasing specs in favour of distinctive ‘squeezable' sides

Solid build ; Fast and smooth performance ; Vibrant screen ; Good camera ; Plenty of useful (and quirky) features

Video and audio performance could be more exciting ; Overly sensitive lock/home button

The U12+ won’t rock the smartphone world, but its ‘squeezable’ features and decent camera are worth a punt

HTC U12+ review: Flagship misses any must-have flourish


HTC's 2018 flagship phone is a big offering with some bold features. But in a world of advancing flagships, does it offer anything truly standout?

Good display ; Lots of power on tap ; Expandable storage via microSD ; Capable main and front cameras ; Exciting audio offering and great bundled headphones

It feels big and heavy against the competition ; Zoom camera isn't great ; Buttons mess with basic Android functions ; Edge Sense squeeze/tap not needed

The HTC U12+ is a powerful phone with a good main camera and great display, but the zoom camera lets things down. Edge Sense means some inconvenient compromises and overall it just feels a little more chunky than it needs to be.

HTC U12+ review


The HTC U12+ gets a lot of things right, but a so-so battery life holds it back from greatness

Good rear camera ; Notch haters will like the design ; Water resistant

Mediocre battery life ; Squeeze features more quirky than useful ; No headphone jack

Its unique features are more gimmick than genius, but the HTC U12+ is a solid phone for notch-haters

HTC U12 Plus review


A powerful phone with a powerful flaw

Great audio ; Strong design ; Good low-light camera

Battery falls short again ; Volume buttons are just... wrong ; Touch-sensitive sides fail to impress again

While we thoroughly applaud HTC for trying to be innovative with this handset, in a smartphone world that sorely needs differentiation, it doesn't mean that we have to like what's on show. In the same way that we don't need our phones to be able to...

HTC U12+ review: A formidable smartphone to rival the 2018 titans


HTC's flagship phone for 2018 is a worthy contender to rivals from Samsung and Apple

Amazing cameras ; Fantastic screen resolution ; Solid CPU performance

UI should be faster ; Pressure sensitive buttons are annoying ; Poor placement of fingerprint scanner

The problem is it’s squeezed by the vastly cheaper OnePlus 6 on one side, and the superior but only slightly more expensive Samsung Galaxy S9 on the other. Had it arrived six months ago, it might have been a showstopper. As it is, the HTC U12+ is good...

HTC U12+


The HTC U12 Plus should have been an improvement on the excellent U11. Instead its gimmicks and bugs make it the smartphone disappointment of 2018. Here's our full review

HTC U12 Plus review: Feeling the pressure


The HTC U12 Plus does some things well and others not no well - not the greatest phone of 2018

The HTC U12 Plus is a highly competent flagship phone. It has the specifications to rival the very best around and, in its Flare Red and translucent blue colours, a unique look, too. It’s a better phone than the Sony Xperia XZ2 and, at £699, it is...

  (Rating Hidden)

Four years ago HTC was one of the biggest names in the Android mobile phone market, its One M8 the hottest handset on the market. In 2018, though, the landscape is very different. The HTC U12+ might just be the quietest flagship release of the year -...
