Anonymous, 02 Nov 2017who agrees w/ me that new htc phone looks like under $100 phones?me. U11 is very ugly.
Thanks Anthony & Grey for your opinions.
Read on the net from professionals that best is charging btw 40-60%, leave it once per month to 0%. There's a technical explanation for it, can search net for it like doing it like that to keep the battery in moderate working cycle not low or high when charged.
There's also that view of not letting it always reach 100% but some 90-95%.
Volimpicku, 30 Oct 2017Last good HTC M8, after nothing, HTC need close. I have had the HTC one m7,m8,m9,HTC 10 and now the U11 and I admit the m8 was a truly excellent smartphone and it will always have a special place in my heart.
But the HTC u11 is one of the best smartphones they have made and I am very much looking forward to the HTC u11 plus to be fair.
Hardcor, 30 Oct 2017Briefly, at what % best to charge. And you meant must not let it reach 100%.We all have our own rules when charging our phone but for me I do the following.
1,I put my phone on charge at 20% and I unplug it at 90% and I never let it go till it turns off at 0%
2,I never use fast charge with my U11 I use the charging brick from my G4 which isn't a fast charging plug because I think fast charging will ruin the battery faster long term.
3,At night I have my U11 on a timing plug which turns off the power after 2 hours so when I wake my U11 is usually at 98%
4,If I need to top my phone up during the day I use a charging brick which doesn't support fast charge also but my U11 usually lasts a full day with heavy use.
That's what I personally do myself but each to there own I say but do whatever feels best to you.
Hardcor, 30 Oct 2017Briefly, at what % best to charge. And you meant must not let it reach 100%.basically, to maximize the lifespan of your battery if you are the kind of person that keeps a phone for years (and this applies to any modern cell phone, not just HTC) you should try to practice the following.
1. try not to charge frequently. This means keep your phone on battery power as much as you can and avoid doing shot charges when you can. The less amount of times you connect/disconnect to the charger the better.
2. quick charge 3.0 works from 0-80% so the closer you are to 0% and change to 80% / 90% that will be the best way to do it.
3. leave charging to 100% for when you know, you will be away from an outlet (e.g. outdoors) for a long time and you know, you will need that extra juice.
leaving your phone charging overnight is not doing your battery any favors.
one's I have enuff power for my phone to make it overnight sitting idle, I plug it in as soon as I get up and by the time I'm ready to leave the house, I'm normally in the 90s
Hardcor, 30 Oct 2017Guys, are you always leaving battery to shrink to red or charging before?
I'm mainly charg... morewhy do to plug your phone in the charge at 70%
quick charge don't even work for the last 20%
so technically, when you plug in at 70% you only getting 10% use of quick charge 3.
most tech reviewers say not charging to 100% cuts down on wear & tear on the battery.
Also, a battery only has so many charge cycles before it stops holding a charge. so stop charging your phone when you don't need to. you are waisting charge cycles.
All User's pls anyone can guide me to enable voLTE in my u11 as I got lost and would really appreciate the help.
Guys, are you always leaving battery to shrink to red or charging before?
I'm mainly charging my HTC U11 btw 50-70% and once per month from 0% for longer lasting battery life .
Haikel, 29 Oct 2017Pros . Battery 6 to 8 hours . Camera. Sound. Stable
Cons. No proper gallery.
Can buy.All HTC apps like File Explorer, Galary, Music etc,... are available in the app store. Just search for "HTC APPS".
This is a great move by HTC which will allow us to get better updates quickly, and will avoid duplicate apps which will help the mobile to run smoothly.
Anyways you have google Photos app to view all your multimedia contents. just switch to album tab at the bottom and you can view all your photos and videos.

Pros . Battery 6 to 8 hours . Camera. Sound. Stable

it beats iphone 7 plus! Wauu!(i just found it on web). And dont worry about htc screen,it has nothing to do with screens on htc m7,m8,m9-since htc 10 its totaly new super lcd,the fifth generation-its awesome! If someone show u htc 10 or u11,but hides the htc logo-u would think this is samsung's super amoled screen-really awesome;plus it doesnt have amoled burn effects,so u can enjoy in higher brightnes as much as u like.
Say honestly u11 is overall better than s8 .In Both camera and audio department it performs better than s8+. As samsung has amoled screen, according Gsmarena own review Htc u11 photo has more punchy color rendering and saturation than s8+. So U will never miss amoled screen as far it concerns photography.
Finally more ram , better Anututu readings.
So overall better. Only one thing why it is criticized because it is not made by samsung or apple.
I have been using my U11 for the past 5 months or so now and I can't recommend it enough and it has excellent battery life and it never slows down whatsoever and the screen is absolutely beautiful also with excellent viewing angles even in direct sunlight.
If I thought it was rubbish I would say hey don't buy this rubbish phone but it's not rubbish at all to be fair,it's a bloody good phone but I do wish it had a always on display but otherwise it is very good indeed.
I will say the screen you will never get bored of looking at it,it's absolutely beautiful ok,gorgeous.
Orlando, 27 Oct 2017I have a USB 1TB but its not working in my U11. so what seems to be wrong. I gave a long explanation but it's being held for review. so here is the short answer that should post right away.
Android doesn't support NTFS.
you have to use drives formatted in FAT32
