Back in August, one Android Central editor picked U11 the most solid phone of 2017.
Check his article out.
"If you skipped ahead & just want a tl;dr, here it is: dismiss the HTC U11 at your peril this year. There are plenty of reasons to recommend the Galaxy S8, LG G6, OP 5 & myriad other Android devices launched in 2017, but for my money, the most solid, most reliable, most stable, & most enjoyable to use is the HTC U11."

Hi HTC center,
Why HTC U11 can not share photo or video from Facebook to Facebook messenger? the other phone can, but only HTC U11. I'm HTC's fan, but i'm not satisfy with it on this poit.
The other phone has 3 function 1. Share photo now. 2. Write post. 3 Send as Message.
Unfortunately HTC U11 has only 2 function. Pls build up your update now.
Rafe Firmani, 16 Nov 2017So HTC giving OREO update to U11.
One last bit of confusion to clear up is dual audio suppor... morein the past, I have installed dual audio Bluetooth drivers on my HTC HD2
and that was Bluetooth 2.1 OS windows mobile (long before there was even a version 5). got the drivers on XDA Forum.
don't see why there wouldn't be drivers to do the same on Android made by a developer or ported from the S8. You just have to look for it. I'm no longer interested in dual audio so, so I never went hunting for it again.
Aadrian, 15 Nov 2017Good job HTC is rolling out the oreo update. So HTC giving OREO update to U11.
One last bit of confusion to clear up is dual audio support.
Android authotity says:
"The simultaneous dual audio feature is a proprietary feature of Qualcomm and is not part of the Bluetooth 5 standard."
I've had many arguments with some Samsung users on your previous article about this a month or so ago. They were somehow using that feature as proof the gs8 already supported bluetooth 5 out of the box"
All this time, what I want from OREO Update is BT 5.0 is dual audio support!
And judging by Android Authority article, basically there's DENIAL of this.
So, HTC U11 won't have DUAL AUDIO SUPPORT like S8?
My device is a Taiwanese version but I still haven't gotten the update
Kudos for HTC for delivering Oreo update as promised on time.
@HTC: Dear HTC if you are following our threads on GSMarena, we request you to please try to concentrate on releasing us the monthly security patches which are of utmost importance for every individual for all security related issues.
Thanks in advance.
An update for previous post about buying HTC U11- 2 Spigen liquid crystal case and 1 Rugged Armor. Got a metal kickstand(durable) gift from Spigen.
Must say Spigen liquid crystal case is incredible, was surprised that comes with same hardness thickness high quality as the Rugged armor(gonna use after 1 year+ so my phone looks as if new again in design)!
Many of my friends say well for that price of each we can get 5+ chinese cases for our phones from alibaba, amazon, ebay...but tried that with screen protector after buying 3 chinese ones since Spigen have the nano liquid for scratches not screen drops/break/crack.
Now the chinese screen protector for my HTC U11 moved from its place!! during inserting Spigen case that exactly fits my HTC U11 and looks very nice!
This is why better invest some more money in ORIGINAL and HIGH QUALITY(when found) than buying cheap!
If this first screen protector keeps on moving, will try the other 2(like it) had bought, until a top brand makes a screen protector against cracks for HTC U11.
This is a brilliant phone. The camera is great, audio is loud and crisp! and so is that display crisp. The battery is not stellar, but will get through you for a day. The UI is almost stock too, which is a great add. I dont find any lag, which is excellent.
Marek, 12 Nov 2017Which one to choose Samsung S8 or Htc U11 ? At the moment Iam using Samsung s7 . For me it... moreGalaxy s8 and s7 is no different in screen display, s6 edge plus screen brightness is way better than the two models. Also Vivid display is missing from the s8 which reason for me to sell my s8. The front camera of s8 was so rediculous. Now I am using the incredible HTC u11 which great in all aspects its camera (front 16mp and 12mp back) and its durability. The 4g LTE is way faster than the s8. I love HTC U11.
Marek, 12 Nov 2017Which one to choose Samsung S8 or Htc U11 ? At the moment Iam using Samsung s7 . For me it... moreU11 for me, mainly because of the audio prowess.
But you may want to consider S8's Edge design, whether you absolutely must have that one or you can not stand its flaws (no side bezels results in less durability, and prone to accidental touches)
