Oh my... Awesome features..
Way better than buying galaxy S8 which has ostentatious edge (practically nothing useful).
HTC's Edge sense / squeeze whatever they call it, is actually "useful" in a number of ways..seems HTC has gotten it right this year, looking forward to move from my iPhone 7 matte black to U11.
Those who blame U11 for a lesser battery, i think 3k mAh battery for 5.5inch display is wayyy better than 3k mAh battery on galaxy S8's 5.7 (or 6 inch).
Camera has been marked as the only top smartphone with the score of 90 on DXOmark followed by google pixel.
For me ticks all the boxes. Friends please don't hate this phone; appreciate, respect useful innovation. I agree S8's design + U11's cam, squeeze, better battery would be a dream phone but for now we don't have that option. may be next year.
Underdog2, 17 May 2017Looks like HTC is Back!!! It beats S8 in almost every category. Unfortunately , this phone won... moreSamsung and Apple has fanboy followers that fail to criticize the products they love so much.
In reality the smartphone space is extremely saturated and nobody is innovating anything. Any improvements to the battery is basically from the 10nm Snapdragon 835. Basically everyone is just on the newest snapdragon bandwagon. Everyone has that 4gb or 6gb LPDDR4 RAM with 1440p screen and some sort of sony on sensor phase detection camera sensor, topped with gorilla glass 42. The specs for flagship phones are all nearly identical.
To say one flagship is utter trash and another is godly is basically fanboy talk. Still, there are an infinite number of fanboys who are willing to take samsung size and bash HTC for trying. At least HTC still tried. Remember how hard apple tried when they made the iPhone 4. That shit was godly. Now they don't even do anything. Samsung doesn't do anything either. I swear LG, HTC, and Sony is where the innovation is at right now. They will probably fail to dethrone apple or samsung but you should buy their phones just to keep the innovation going. As I said, all flagship phones are pretty much identical. So HTC is basically just a current gen flagship that can be squeezed. Sony xz premium is just a current gen flagship that does 4k. Meanwhile samsung is just a basic current gen flagship that doesn't do anything and isn't particularly cheap either.
Just wondering if this device is HML capable? Wanted to mirror it to my 2016 Honda CRV screen. Thank you.

Looks like HTC is Back!!! It beats S8 in almost every category. Unfortunately , this phone won't stop the bleeding. First, most bloggers have already made their mind up about this phone no matter how creative or advance it is. If you look at some of their complaints already they are completely biased. This HTC 11 is an absolutely stunning phone , like the S8 , but in a different way. Like the S8 they are both finger print magnets and that is why the squeeze technology is a game changer. Anything that lessons the touching of the screen should be applauded not criticized or seen as a "gimmick" Secondly, HTC can't match the out sized brain washing ads of Samsung.
The good thing about U11 is only the back glass color,other things is similar with U ultra.
This is such a great phone with highly competitive specs from Htc.. I love this phone, Glad to see u back like a king... ;)

Amazing work! I wanted to buy a Galaxy S8 but now I'd prefer this HTC U11, great design, great colors, excellent specifications. Hope get soon to South America.
I am fan of HTC from last several years...all specs seems to be good except glassy finish....
smallwhite, 16 May 2017First, hope this phone does not have the same build quality as the U ultra. that thing is so p... moreI disagree. The ultra has a phantastic build quality. I am sure that you Never ever held it in your hand. I own it and battery life is at least 24 hours with moderate use. It is a very good phone.

This will be my next phone upgrade. Features I am looking forward to are the snapdragon 835, removed headphone jack, 64gb memory, and android 7.1. All of these should come standard with 2017 smart phones.

Many people lik... moreYes the battery is Â“smallÂ” ....just buy it, but don't come whining when you can barely squeeze 4 hours of screen on time
BTW I have m9 and the 10...unrooted their battery life suck, so it MUST be rooted and tweaked....hence no OTAs
