HTC U11+ review

 

HTC U11+ (Plus) review: Is it worth the upgrade?

Great screen ; Good camera ; Large battery ; Runs latest Android version

Uses last year's parts ; Only a minor upgrade on the regular U11

Battery life is the second area in which the U11+ seriously improves on the U11. HTC’s upped the U11+’s battery capacity to 3930mAh, which is a marked improvement on the original’s 3000mAh cell.

HTC U11

 

2017 has already been a fantastic year for phones, with the Samsung Galaxy S8, LG G6 and Moto G5 all impressing. But now it's HTC's turn, and it's fair to say the Taiwanese company's taking things seriously.

HTC U11+ review: a powerful and stylish flagship that you're (probably) not going to buy

 

Powerful, stylish and innovative, but released a little too late to matter, the HTC U11+ plays all the right notes at the wrong time

Absolutely stunning glass body ; Excellent camera ; Powerful hardware ; Innovative Sense UI ; Capacious 18:9, 6-inch screen ; Lighting-fast fingerprint scanner

Average battery life ; Screen isn't as bright as competitors ; Only available from HTC

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: Big, bold, but a bit late to the game

 

The HTC U11+ is a complete package, but it launches at a time that sees it more expensive than comparable hardware rivals, while new models will

Nice design - especially if you can get the translucent model ; Plenty of power ; Great display (with a caveat) ; Good camera ; Waterproofed design ; Solid battery life

HTC software additions don't add much ; Display has ghosting issues in night mode ; Low brightness levels can cause flicker ; Some will see the hardware as dated at launch

The HTC U11+ is very much an interim step up over the HTC U11, changing that display aspect ratio for more contemporary appeal. We like the design - especially the transparent rear and visible coil within - which is something of a ballsy move from HTC.

HTC U11+ review

 

The squeezy phone is back with a bigger screen and bumper battery

Excellent camera ; Already gorgeous design updated with 18:9 screen ; Great performance & battery life

Screen could be brighter ; No headphone port ; Not sold through UK networks, high SIM-free price

Probably the best phone HTC has made in years, but it’s arriving just a little too late

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

 

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 Plus review

 

HTC gives its U11 phone the ultra-widescreen treatment

Great photo quality ; Decent speakers ; Smart, high-quality build

No headphone jack ; Camera shutter lag ; No depth of field effect

The HTC U11 Plus doesn't offer that much more than some phones released almost a year earlier. However, solid battery life, a slim screen surround and a great - if slightly slow - camera see it through.
