This month's #1 best HTC phone is the U12 Plus, a phablet. HTC makes only smartphones, essentially Android and Windows models, so Phonerated periodically gathers review scores for each HTC phone and computes the average rating each one gets to sort this list of the very best HTC phones 2021 (and 2020), updated at least once a month.
Considering this phone's average ranking of 90%, we are confident that the HTC U12+ is, as of now, Phonerated's best HTC phone 2021. Furthermore, we think that our 640 reviews sampled across multiple sources give us a high confidence level that justifies making it a "no-brainer best choice."
