Just saw the solar red on a youtube video and man that color looks awesome, really good job from HTC.
I had the phone since 1 month, best cam, battery, sound, performance found excellent but (( the clock and alarm found very old design like HTC one which made in 2014.
All in all best phone in 2017 in my opinion and with above facts.

chap1, 24 Jul 2017do you see any difference in terms of performance between iphone and htc u 11? Is iphone reall... moreI have my u11 for a month now. Before getting this phone i was ready to dip in iphone since i just want stable ui, best cam, excellent sound. I have been waiting for the iphone 8 to come out, so been dropping by to apple store a few times. Evrytime i played with iphone7 plus, it felt sluggish. Back then i was using my redmi note 3 and uts way snappy than iphone. And u11 arrived and the rest is history.
sskulkarni, 25 Jul 2017can u pls tell me its dual sim dual active or dual sim dual standby Im telling you mate, its dual sim syand by.
U11 has beaten s8 in ease in multitasking, gaming performance, speed test, graphics. S8 has better design, less bezels.

You are far better using a case and a tempered glass screen protector for it because otherwise it will get scratches even in your pocket.

If your device have scratches on the display, definitely it must have been something much sharper than keys or coins. Basically keys or coins has no effect on its glass front.
Check Jerry Rig Everything channel in YouTube if you're interested. It has the scratch test in detail along with flame and bend tests.
xXENDER FREAKXx, 25 Jul 2017U can say that the lighter the software the faster the phone will be. Which applies to HTC and... moreI totally agree with u and thats the reason for me to keep u11. It has same battery life as s8plus and no lag at all cheers mate!
stailmangki, 25 Jul 2017The small battery spoils it!I regularly get 6 hours plus SOT time so you is wrong there for sure.
The U11 has excellent battery life.
stailmangki, 25 Jul 2017The small battery spoils it!This isn't small unless u might wanna try those crappy ASUS ones with a hell out of a 5000mah battery?

Which applies to HTC and Sony, their software optimization is overall better than Samsung's one because of how heavy the Samsung UI is in my opinion. Don't get mad for those Samsung users that see this, I like Samsung too and this is just my opinion
The HTC U11 is a return to the top of the market. The performance is superb, quick, good battery, great camera and looks fantastic. Edge is getting better and better and I love one squeeze to open the camera and another to take a photo, so quick and great in the rain and under water.
I think it is very difficult to meet everyones expectations or personal preference when it comes to UI. I tried the S8, P10, Sony and One+ but can honestly say the U11 is overall better than them all. I believe HTC has gone the right way in removing the bloatware and duplicate apps, save money, use Google.
Its a tough market especially as only Apple and Samsung make money from smartphones sales and the differences between Asia, Europe and the US.
I own blue sapphire U11. It's an amazing phone. Camera, sound, performace all are excellent. But i feel pissed off by the fact that the display got scratches now. It's protected by gorilla glass 5 right? how come it got scratches while I only put this phone on my pocket or bag without keys or coins with it.
This has to be the best phone for 2017, I used s8 plus for two months got no complaints with it but the touch wiz experience on galaxy phones ruin it. It will start to lag and stutter no matter what u do.
I also have xperia xz premium and I can say that u11 and xz premium beats samsung when it comes to useability. U11 camera is amazing getting 6hrs SOT regularly after unplugging the charger over a 24hr period. build quality also amazing. I have decided to keep both xz premium and u11. both these phones are neck and neck to each other.
mk, 18 Jul 2017this phone has no gallery. it makes it so boring plus the camera is no where compared to the M8. There is a gallery app (Google Photos). It is there over the traditional gallery application because HTC is trying to remove all the annoying bloatware apps.
Regarding your claim that the camera of the U11 is nowhere near the M8, the U11 camera has a higher resolution (4MP vs 12 MP) , aperture (f/2.0 vs f/1.7, faster focus time, OIS, 4K recording and very good low light capabilities. I have no idea how you compare the M8 and the U11 in the camera department and claim M8 is the winner by any means.
