After using Samsung Galaxy S and Note Series mobiles since S3, Note2, S4, S5, Note 4, S6 and now S7 edge as my primary device.
I considered buying Note 8 but its simply too big for a normal sized pocket. I have ordered U11 Solar Gold varient yesterday for a very good deal of 7000/- Rs off. I was supposed to get it today but Flipkart screwed the scheduled I have to wait till Monday now. F... these Flipkart B....... and their big billion day sale.....
Thats not all, in between I have used tons of other mobiles ( And yes I am crazy over mobile phones ;) )
I will update my review comparing with my S7 edge and my cousin's S8 next week.

Battery just 3000mAh
Price.Absolutely rubbish you clearly don't own this phone because I do and I'll tell you that the battery life is brilliant.
Got 6 hours SOT time today with 18% still left at the moment.
Need I say anymore.....
kerginaldo17, 20 Sep 2017I forgot 2: top and bottom borders enormous, like the Sony's xperia. Every single person i show my HCU u11 is impressed by its beauty, speed, performance, camera shots, the screen quality and the sound quality. You really never seen one to say so much crap from your mouth.

Ah,I forgot : display lcd.700$ is enough for thsee especifications.
Where I work I get access to newest and best mass produced handsets on the planet... Nexus 6p came out and after playing with one for about 2 weeks I got it and the same with handsets that followed (HTC 10, Pixel XL).
HTC u11 was not that convincing to start with... Lack of earphone jack and dual side glass are really not my thing.... I do prefer solid metal phone and this u11 is not.
What it is though, is in my opinion the best phone I played with this year (so far) and I am a proud owner of black 4gb version of it.
Yes it is not the most impressive screen on the market but it's still great. Yes it does have quite big frame around it (smaller than iPhone 8plus).
But let's jump in to what is so great about it:
- this camera on both pictures and video is just stunning in all conditions although 16mp front facing camera is a bit disappointing in low light conditions in video calls where HTC software doesn't do the magic.
- best speakers in a phone I used.
- absolutely stunning performance.
- for the first few days battery behaved as in gsma review but than Google and HTC software kicked in and now it's officially the longest lasting handset I used and by far even compared to pixel XL and by quite a bit.
- it does not sound as good and as loud as HTC 10 through usbc dac but still sounds much better than pretty much everything else on the market in Europe to that level that I use it with my pixel too - although it is better optimised on u11 (you can get it really cheap from HTC store and work on everything usbc I tried it on.
Geuenly great phone - won't regret if you get it.
PS I love the look of the back after first hesitation even if cover it all the time and only enjoy the beauty while cleaning it.
Since reviews for LG V30 & Samsung Note 8 are out already....
U11 or V30 or Note 8???
I'm a big fan of HTC phones from the time I got my Desire S, and One ME.
I'm planning for an upgrade. Is this worth the upgrade? I just don't like the no jack option.
The day that HTC U11 announced that they get Android 8.0 for U11 I immediately trade my Samsung Galaxy S8 and bought this u11 but look at now ,the s8 is now rolling it's 8.0 version. What the heck HTC where is the 8.0 version you promised.
People buy this phone it's a great phone and the fastest android phone.
HTC U11 DxOMark Review with new testing protocols, score 90, joint rank #1 with Google Pixel
HTC is making really good phones this year. U Ultra is a really good phone especially with the cheaper price now, and U11 is really a superb phone too. I try a lot of brands but when I use HTC I feel like I'm home, it feels familiar and I prefer the Sense software more than stock or Touchwiz etc. I'm also very glad to see that HTC finally is able to make an excellent camera in a phone. So I couldn't wish for more now. HTC for me it's the best!
hitecmal, 12 Sep 2017I am sad to say I pre ordered my htcu11 I got it in June. Why am I sad you ask? From day one i... moreEvery company has it's stories of bad service.
Do you want my story about a Sammy Note5 that had a bad screen and how they refused to get it fixed although still under warranty?
And I guess Sony and LG aren't perfect, either... that's life.
But HTC had always made excellent phones. You can't bash them for one bad story.
HTC U11 phone of the year
Anonymous, 09 Sep 2017Sony XZ Premium or HTC U11!?!?Both good phones, but it depends on your own preferences, XZ Premium with a super high ppi and a more boxy design, or a more rounded U11 with superb colors. Unless there are features which one have over the other and which you really want, then it's easier to decide. I'd say it's a tough one, I like both phones.
