HTC Strikes a Home Run this time. Brilliantly designed and Squeezy!
HTC has tried and tested everything to survive in the flagship space but with U11 it makes a huge comeback to take the top. HTC U11 looks classy and stylish in all regards with superior build quality. With a stellar camera and the new Edge sense thrown in, HTC U11 offers a truly compelling package. HTC has worked really hard to deliver a flagship unlike any other. However, the device does have a few drawbacks. The metal and glass finish makes the device extremely slippery and prone to accidental damage. While it runs the latest Android OS coupled with 4GB RAM on Snapdragon 835, HTC U11 sports a hybrid DUAL SIM. Meaning, you won’t be able to use your second SIM with External SD; something which should have been avoided.
HTC U11 is a premium flagship offering top of the line specs. HTC U11 excels in design and offers breakthrough performance with Snapdragon 835 processor backed with seemingly efficient Android 8.0 operating system.

SQUEEZE TO ROCK!
SQUEEZE YOUR PHONE TO MAKE IT DO WHAT YOU WANT.
HTC U11 features an all-new Edge Sense technology, a touch-sensitive panel embedded on either sides of the bottom. Squeezing this panel with your hand depending on the sensitivity will perform various actions just as easily. So now you can squeeze to make a call, set alarm or even trigger Google Assistant. Varying on the sensitivity, HTC U11 can perform a set of pre-defined actions. While the technology seems to run sometimes, the squeeze triggers automatically even if the phone is in your pocket. So it is safe to assume that there is still room for improvement.
THE CAMERA MAKES YOU CLICK.
HTC U11 is all awesome but the biggest thing to note is the camera it sports. The rear camera on U11 is 12 MP with f/1.7 aperture coupled with OIS (Optical Image Stabilization). But for the better part, it sports a UltraPixel 3 sensor which makes HTC U11’s camera highest DXO mark rated. The U11 camera stands up to the hype and captures some of the best pictures. The camera on HTC U11 highlights amazing details and is extremely sharp. It performs amazingly in the low-light photography department and is a visual treat for anyone.
BE AN AUDIOPHILE!
MUSIC PLAYED WITH SUBTLE BASS
HTC U11 decided to go the Apple way by ditching the audio jack but has excellently compensated it by making the audio sound more appealing and powerful on the USB Type-C port. HTC U11 includes USonic earbuds in the box and are definitely the best sounding earphones in the market. They feature active noise cancellation and tune the audio depending on the ear structure. And if you are a dedicated fan of 3.5mm jack HTC U11 packs an in-box 3.5mm to USB Type-C adapter. Using the adapter will drive impended sound through your headphones, making the sound quality an amazing experience.
WHEN YOUR PHONE IS WATERPROOF
HTC U11 has finally done what fans have been waiting for, an IP67 rating making the device water and scratch resistant. It is a major upgrade from IP53 rating HTC has for its predecessors. With U11 HTC has finally managed to catch up to steep competition in the smartphone market.
