HTC U11 Pros & Cons Review

Picture of the HTC U11, by HTC

- Analysis by Christelle Nina


Like the other phones from HTC's U Series (namely, the U Ultra and U Play), the U11 boasts of especially-developed features like the adaptive HTC USonic and HTC Sense Companion AI . The U11, however, takes things a little further with its Edge Sense feature, which lets the user launch apps and perform actions by squeezing the phone's sides.

Its 16-megapixel selfie camera has a much higher resolution than the rear one, which clocks in at 12-megapixels. Due to this, the U11 remains confined in the usual resolution range found in 2017 flagships' rears, but exceeds them in terms of the front-facing sensor. Even though the main shooter doesn't make as much of a statement, it's still achieved the noteworthy feat of scoring 90 on DxOMark ratings .

The phablet-sized screen has been nicely-equipped with a Quad HD resolution . It's also protected by 3D Corning Gorilla Glass 5 , so we really have no complaints here.

This brings us to one of its primary cons. It fully relies on a 3000mAh battery , which is not exactly the most impressive spec -- given that it is to fuel the powerful selfie camera and display. Further, the U11 has relatively more thickness at 7.9mm compared to many similar phones -- a wonder, given the lack of an awe-inducing battery.

Despite this, the HTC U11 wins in terms of its aesthetic value. The liquid glass surface -- made with "Optical Spectrum Hybrid Deposition", according to HTC -- gives it a unique look that's refreshing to see against the sea of metal high-end devices. It also earns points for being IP67 water-resistant .

As an end to this pros and cons list, we give props to HTC for giving the U11 an octa-core CPU with a speed of up to 2.45GHz . This value is promising as it beats those from higher-end models.

On paper, this smartphone has an appealing set of pros and cons that's most likely going to attract the high-end market. In spite of having a thicker-than-ideal profile and a smaller battery, most of the U11's specs appear well-thought-of and convincing, especially to those who are looking for a slightly-cheaper alternative to top-shelf models.
