I think everyone's spite with phones abandoning the 3.5mm headphone jack stems from the fact that we're currently in the transition period from wired to wireless audio, and currently bluetooth technology doesn't support lossless audio transmission. During the conversion process of transmitting audio from your phone to your headphones/earbuds, their is a loss in quality. Not so much that the average listening will pick up on it, especially with a solid pair of headphones, but a true audiophile will definitely hear a difference. As the technology progresses overtime with the bluetooth, and its bound to get more support now that it's quickly becoming the industry standard, people will be a little less salty about phones not having a headphone jack. But currently so many people still have wired headphones that this is a problem for a lot of people...
I would've bought this but it doesn't have support for USA bands. Plus I'm not going to throw away my G6 already.
Nice phone but people stop liking HTC brand.
Its going slowly out of fashion like some other brands did.
Apple could follow.
I would really appreciate.
Also Samsung :-)
I hate curved screens for a million certain reasons.
Gorgeous phone. Almost perfect! Would like to see htc come back.
AnonD-573368, 02 Nov 2017HTC is out of the game, these bezels sucks thu, I surely won't pay 800 to bother my sight with... moreMy HTC U11 thick bezels hasnt killed me yet. How i wish u11 had this beefy batter.
Good news this garbage is not coming to US
HTC you out of your mind, how did come to this. Looks like HTC living in a bobble world and has no idea what competitors is up to. It's time for me to try different brands.
Good bye HTC !
Again HTC made a really beautiful phone, but (for now) no super awesome colors like Solar Red. Still a super beautiful phone, I am curious how it feels in the hands.
This phone check all the boxes for me, but it doesn't support US LTE bands. What a disappointment! Now it narrow down to V30 or 5T, but I lean toward V30 more. I don't trust Chinese's shady practice.
Mobilemaster, 02 Nov 2017Honestly I am kinda dissapointed again. I mean this device is huge! Have a look at the Galaxy ... moreHtc u11+ is just 1 mm taller and 1 mm wider than Samsung S8+. Just One milimeter more !!! And htc u11+ hasn't stupid useless curved screen, it is flat , so 1 mm more wider is normal. Also, htc u11 plus has stereo speakers, so bigger bezels up and down are ALSO justificated.
Yes finally a Beautiful 2017 phone from HTC. Sad its not coming to the US. Just make a Dual lens cam next time and you will get all the boxes checked
Build : ✔✔✔
Camera : ✔✔
Bezel less : ✔✔✔
Finally, good battery size, very nice display, but no headphone jack. Not interested in headphone dongle adapter that may stop working like on my previous HTC U11, which you can only order on their website. Would have considered this phone, but will probably buy LG V30, quad DAC and headphone jack to me is a deal breaker. I blame this all on Apple and all these wanna be Apple smartphone manufacturers following suit. Please Samsung LG and OnePlus, dont abandon the headphone jack.
Best phone 4 ever 😗, htc quietly brilliant 💙💙💙
Alien , 02 Nov 2017Where is yhe bezeless design? All I see are some HUGE as bezels :))
- NO 3.5mm jack ... moreYou are mocking HTC for the "huge" bezels (78% STB ratio btw) and then go on to say you are gonna go Sony, the bezel-happy company.
For those who are interested, Recombu has uploaded a video to YouTube showing the original U11 and the Plus version side by side.
Thesis86, 02 Nov 2017This is why I have been bothered with all of these Quarter 4 phones. Wait for the 845 after Sa... moreBecause SD845 around the corner, Sd835 at the lowest price. Big profit each unit is 1 of the reason htc not selling well
I can't believe that this is not coming to the US.... what a bummer that the US gets chided when manufacturers release special/limited edition of phones.... I like HTC and was considering purchasing this phone... but if I have to import it... it's going to be over $1000 US and I'd rather save my money for either the Razer phone, the Huawei Mate 10, or just wait until 2018...
