I have been using the U11 plus for a week now and its excellent :)
I just ordered the U11+ today. I wanted to wait for the 12, but since it's now cheaper than getting the regular U11 here in the states, I decided jump on that since my HTC 10 is on life support and i have to keep it hooked up to a power bank. From what I've seen it looks like a great phone.
I was Samsung user for a couple of years since Galaxy S3 through S4, S5, Note5 and S8, I must admit i've no regrets moving to HTC. U11+ is a beast in a good way.
HTC Sense UI 10
With using my U11 plus for a few days now I thought I'd post my thoughts on it to help any of you who are thinking of buying it and I have been putting it threw its paces and I am a heavy user also and I hope this helps you out...
I have found the display to be excellent in that it's crisp and clear and overall excellent to look at with good colour balance but I admit in direct sunlight it's dull and not as bright even on full as my g6 or my friends note 8 and s8 but you can manage with it but indoors it is excellent though as its easily bright enough and at nighttime I have to lower the brightness as it can get too bright but it is not as good as my normal U11 for brightness also but the outside thing isn't a big deal on overcast days but in sunlight it's not ideal.
Battery life is excellent and I can get threw a full day easily and I would say its better than the normal U11 but not by much as such but I haven't struggled to get threw today for example so overall its excellent with plenty of screen on time indeed.
The speakers on the phone are extremely loud to the point you can feel the sound travelling threw the phone and they are tons louder than the normal U11 and listening to music or watching videos is a pleasure indeed and the headphones are also really excellent to so overall its definitely got the classic HTC sound goodness.
Call quality and signal strength.
For me the call quality is excellent and extremely clear so I haven't any issues there and I also sound great on the other side to so that's really good overall and I always have good signal strength wherever I am but I found the normal U11 to have great signal strength to.
The phone runs extremely fast with no slowdowns or hiccups and I haven't had a single lock up or restart and installing apps is fluid and fast also and overall the phone runs any task with no difficulty at all.
As usual the phone has that excellent HTC build quality where it feels well built and sturdy and it shines with that excellent quality finish and its a joy to look at and own but it definitely needs a case as the phone is unbelievably slippery so I recommend you get a case for it asap.
I haven't even come close whatsoever to using all the available space on the phone and I doubt I ever will do so for me it's more than enough to be fair.
The camera is excellent with great looking photos in all lights and night time pictures aren't too bad either to be fair and its plenty fast I think to but I admit I don't bother with the selfie camera but it does the job but the main camera itself is excellent and its pretty much the same as the normal U11.
Bluetooth and WiFi.
WiFi reception is great and works for me with no issues at all connecting to my network and at work also so I think overall wifi works well and Bluetooth range is excellent as I have my U11 plus connected to a Samsung gear S3 watch and it hasnt lost connection to the phone anywhere in the house and also if I go in the garden the watch doesn't lose connection to the phone also outside so Bluetooth works great.
I can't think of anything else to say regarding the U11 plus but I hope the above helps anyone looking to buy it and I do recommend it but the only thing that let's it down is the display brightness in bright sunlight but it's not a huge deal as such but it could be a issue for some people.

Plus 28% still left. Thats a good start for it n Im glad to hear that. I would love to buy it as well. I hope you are enjoying your new Htc U11+ ... haha .. Take Care Buddy :)

Either way it hasn't been hard to get threw today at all :)

Lol This website is good enough to share opinions n short review of phones ;) ... Regarding the U12+, you are right it will be very expensive as usual, but so far the U12+ looks very promising with the leaks and renders though. That's why i am just keeping an eye on it.
Hope to see a good leak soon or an announcement from Htc. (Always take so long for their flagships) haha :)

I bet the u12 plus will be priced too high as usual.

Hope you will love it more as you spend more time with it. I really want to buy the U11+ but still can't, coz the U12+ is so close to release now, Yet still have no official announcement from HTC. Lol
Do you have any youtube channel or any source where you upload Pictures/Videos of Tech , I really want to see your phone and videos that you would take from U11+? (You can say a U11+ short review) haha ;)
ADI, 14 Apr 2018Wow Congratulation man... Im really happy that you liked the U11+. Must be really shinny thoug... moreYeah my U11 plus is shiny lol :) and the black colour shines with a silver tint it's beautiful to look at and battery life is so far pretty good to be fair and I reckon it could possibly beat my normal U11 once the battery has settled down.
As for the camera it seems as good as the normal U11 to be fair with excellent picture quality and very fast speed when taking pictures and I can't really find anything to complain about with it but time will tell.
The only thing I can say which is a little bit not great with my U11 plus is that the screen is not quite as bright and easy to see than my normal U11 in very bright sunlight and I would say that I do wish it was as bright as the normal U11 and I wouldn't say its a struggle to see the screen but it does take some getting use to but it could better I admit.
I wouldn't say it's a dealer breaker to buy this phone but something to keep in mind if you are interested in it but I can live with it to be fair.

Must be really shinny though! ;) haha ... Yea n do share your thoughts on Camera and Battery later on as you get to experience more of it.
I really wanted to buy this phone in Amazing Silver colour, (I wish if they had Sapphire Blue for the + version as well) but since its already time for U12+ so i thought lets just wait more and see what the new U12 brings out! Can't wait for it already, No wonder why are they taking so much time to release it! Its like already half a year gone by. LOL ;)
ADI, 12 Apr 2018Awesome, Please do share your experience with the U11+, especially the Camera and the Battery... moreMy U11 plus arrived today and it was a really nice experience unboxing it for the first time and I have to say its a beast it feels heavy but reassuringly well built with a gorgeous big screen and excellent viewing angles and the brightness to me seems excellent and as good as my normal u11 which I am now gona sell but the U11 plus is definitely a upgrade and I am extremely happy with it.
I will see how it goes as I use it but it absolutely flies with anything I ask it to do and the sound volume does seem better than the normal u11 for sure and battery life seems really good but I know the battery needs to settle from new in the days ahead so I will see how it goes.
So far I am extremely impressed with it :)
