Here in Canada... It really makes me mad that no carrier carries the U11 here. I don't know why Htc has stopped selling through carriers here. Though we can only buy it online through Htc website. lol ...
N yea Htc did really well with the U11... Damn that Red colour on U11 is so stunning. As soon as i saw the it in red colour, it just won my heart right there.
Htc 10 is also another beautifully crafted device from 2016, I love my 10 so far.. I bought it last year June 23rd :) I might also keep my 10 for now... n will go for Htc 12 next year when it comes out... Bdw I have Topaz Gold for Htc 10, Which colour did u choose for it? :)

Apparently, in the U.S. we're getting regular updates cuz I get a main system one like once every 2-3 months (JUST got one yesterday too as a matter of fact), where people in other countries like India and I THINK Europe haven't got any in several months. I don't really know what's going on to be honest.
I got a chance to check out the U11 at a Sprint store near me this past Saturday. Sprint is the ONLY U.S. retailer and/or carrier who actually has the U11 in its stores. They had it on display, so I figured I'd go see it. It was actually really nice. Sapphire Blue color was great. Edge Sense was pretty handy too for quickly activating the camera, and with updates I believe you can take a picture by squeezing too? Phone was fast and nice. Speakers were clear and loud as well (they say louder than 10's). Still, I prefer my 10. Matte finish on back is preferred over glossy, and metal body over glass too. Plus I don't like phablets. lol But I'm VERY happy to hear and see that HTC is doing so well with sales for BOTH phones!
Anyone knows! if the camera update for 1080p 60fps video recording option coming to Htc 10 as well? Or is it for only the U11. I really like this 60fps option. I really hope they just don't neglect the their strongest phone of 2016 AKA "Power of 10" Please Don't :( .....

Htc did a good job with the U11 priced at $649 in the US while in Canada its $899. Plus now he colour Solar Red is available too :) ...

At least they were smarter on how they priced the U11, which I'm sure contributed to why it sold better than the M9 & 10 combined.
Wow ...Thats a great news for HTC... Htc 10 has been sold out on the US and Canadian htc websites after the discount sale.. LOL .. Shows Htc is improving well ;)
Gino76, 25 Jul 2017Thanks for that. But my other concern is the UX seems a bit skinned and HTC seem to be trying ... moreGino,
The UI you mean? Man, Sony and HTC have like THE BEST UIs on Android after the Google phones. I mean they are IMO the LEAST infested with bloatware, and have the BEST and most simplest Settings menus IMO vs. LG or ESPECIALLY Samsung. Samsung is a lil better now on that front, but they STILL have that LAGGY TouchWiz garbage UI and the Settings menu still make you think harder to find things than you should have to.
Regarding battery life, Phone Arena compared the two and found that the HTC 10 has a battery life of 7 hrs and 10 min, where the S7 came up a little shorter at 6 hrs and 37 minutes. So once again, HTC outdoes (overrated) Samsung. lol Even the newer phones from each have the same results. The HTC U11's battery life is rated at 9 hours and 3 min, while the S8+ is rated 8 hrs even, with the S8 only being about 20 min better. The U11 also has a better camera (first time for HTC vs. Samsung, though I'd take the 10's camera over the S8's anyday b/c of better color accuracy) too.
Hope that helps.

But my other concern is the UX seems a bit skinned and HTC seem to be trying too hard to be "different" from other OEMs. I'm also concerned about the battery life having rated a lot less than the S7.

Sure no problem!
Well for the most part you should be fine with the 10. Drizzle is nothing. Dropping it in the sink depends on if there's water already there and if you got water coming out of the faucet. That is a little more risky. For me, I don't use my phone near the sink unless it's off, so it's not a problem. If you're willing to do that then you should have NO issues at all.

Coz you hear about IP-rating this and that and these companies never actually explain to you directly and then they envoke the warranty terms to you and then you're done for. With all 6 years of owning an Android phone the worse my phone can come in contact with water is using it whilst on a drizzly day or accidentally dropping it in the sink for a second or two. Because of those factors (and having lost three phones in a span of two years) I need a phone that has some sort of water ingress protection for my confidence.

Gino76, 23 Jul 2017That's cool. But I have another question. It may be IP-protected (slightly) but what if drople... moreGino,
If it's just droplets, I'm gonna guess no. I think the issue is the PRESSURE of water. If you drop a few droplets on the speakers (or etc holes) and it gets in there, per IP 53, it should still be fine. But when you shoot water at it from like a garden hose, or if you drop it in say a pool (esp a deep pool), the pressure is gonna FORCE the water in more, and then the chances of it getting water damaged go up significantly. So again, my answer is no with 99% certainty.
Depending on when you bought your 10 and from where, you may or may not have Uh-Oh Protection. If you do, you can get it replaced for free if it DOES get water damaged or the screen cracks (no questions asked). If you bought your 10 more than a month or so ago and it was purchased directly from HTC.com (U.S. only), then you HAVE Uh-Oh Protection as I do (I bought mine off HTC.com in January). But about a month ago they stopped it for the 10 as the U11 was released. So if you answered "no" to either question, you don't have it.

Rafe Firmani, 21 Jul 2017hi Rockstar!
if there's one person left on htc10 page I believe it would be you, Pal.. lol
... moreHey Rafe!
Yeah I've read numerous reviews saying the audio on the U11 is better than the 10, esp on the speakers. Is the headphone audio better too? I wasn't 100% sure on that.
Hopefully you find it in Solar Red soon. The U.S. HTC site has it, so you may wanna check there, but then you gotta pay for shipping probably. Or else eBay? Might be cheaper on eBay.
The Sprint Store by me has the U11 (Sprint is the ONLY U.S. carrier that has it in their stores). I just confirmed that, so gonna try to go check it out sometime soon. I won't be buying it though cuz I hate phablets, plus I prefer having the 3.5mm port, and also I prefer the look of the 10 over the U11's. Still, the U11 is a great phone with the BEST camera out there! Who would've thought 2 years ago that I'd be saying that now about an HTC phone?! lol Also, I like that with Edge Sense you can take pictures using only ONE hand instead of two. I take it with one, but it's awkward cuz have to hold it a certain way and stretch my thumb to get to the shutter button icon. lol Edge Sense "squeeze to take a photo" is more convenient. Hopefully they keep Edge Sense in future HTC flagships.
This eBay seller has it in 6GB/128GB Solar Red, and ships worldwide too. You should go for it if not too much $$.......... http://www.ebay.com/itm/Solar-RED-HTC-U11-with-best-spec-6G-RAM-Fastest-128G-ROM-DxOMark-best-camera-/322604334772?hash=item4b1cb77eb4:g:6S4AAOSwQYVZcXK9
Well let me know how the U11 is when you finally get it. I'll probably keep my 10 for another year until the U12/12 is released, then make a decision. I MAY also go back to Sony IF they ACTUALLY get their act together, which they seem to slowly be doing. We'll see. lol
