Swim Swim, 22 Jun 2017Thanks, currently I am torn between HTC U 11 vs Sony Xperia Xz Premium, dont know which one to... moreI think you will be happy with either. :)
but please not that, If you plan to keep it for so long, updates should be important for your list also.
Sony updates were kinda bad couple years ago, now I don't know, try forums to check their updates or ask here on Sony devices.
HTC has great support right now in American (1 update already for htc u11, not that good in Europe (where I'm, still waiting for the update). Don't know about the rest of the world. I was spoiled with my Nexus 7 tablet with week/months updates. going to any other brand is a shock. HTC promises 2 more Android versions updates, but that doesn't mean it will update every month with security updates like Blackberry does for example. if you value updates, go for pixel devices, or Apple. that's the only brands that update their devices faster than all others (on Android, in some cases 1 year faster from some brands). software is very important, its not only about specs and hardware. htc sense UI is almost the same as stock Android, that was one of the reasons I went to htc u11 (and a million more ;)) and i'm crossing my fingers that they will update more this year than they did last year, even if they were on of the first companies to put android 7 on their devices.

If he sees a htc u11 on real life working he will want one right in that moment :)
Swim Swim, 22 Jun 2017What about overheating? Previously HTC 10 had heat issues if you played games longer periodsNever had a problem of over heating on htc 10, but then again, im not a gamer. In last days the ambient temperature here was amost 40 celcius and the device was really hot, but even the walls were. The desktop mac near me was hotter. Htc u11 is cooler than htc 10, that i can confirm on the screen you notice the difference of temperature while touching. Dont know if that is enough for you in games. I will try some heavy games how it feels.

In fact is the nearest UI ive worked and i worked with a lot since i make apps for android and IOS. If you like material design, sense respect it.

That's why I suggested that he should get a hands on experience of HTC's Sense UI first.

Waleed Abdallah, 21 Jun 2017How about battery life in htc u11 because it's very important to me If your worried about battery htc u11 is the phone to go, beated all flagships out there. Today from 7 am till now 23.32, ive 64% of battery left. In my htc 10 with less use, i usually had about 20/30 %. I used the phone to go to the web, using phone by bluetooh on the car or on the street. Wifi always on. Reading emails from 2 accounts. Taking some photos. Using ok google with always on feature, using snapchat and whatsapp, using it right now to make this post.

I thought my htc 10 was good, but comparing it to htc u11, the 11 is from another league. Much better screen, lighter, larger but with a better grip. Much smoother and faster, better sound quality, much faster focus on camera and better photos much better battery life. Really its like comparing a mid level device to a high end true flagship device and htc 10 is already a fantastic device, but not from the same league than htc u11.
Waleed Abdallah, 21 Jun 2017How about battery life in htc u11 because it's very important to me I don't struggle personally to get threw a day with my u11 and I do top the phone up after I get home from work in the afternoon but I am sure I could go the whole day if need be and I do tons of texting all day and also YouTube and net use to so I do hammer my phone.
Your usage may be different but for me I find the u11 to be excellent with battery life and I would honestly tell you if I thought it was rubbish.

There was an update for Maps today which I did download and after that my Maps was working all right for a while. Now Maps in my phone is down again. I sincerely hope that issue is with the app and not with my instrument. Its one of the best phones that i have used so far.

This is my second week now with the u11 and its a fantastic smartphone for sure and I can't think of anything wrong with it,it does everything I need with little difficulty and for those who are thinking of buying it I would say go for it and I ordered today a spigen rugged armor case for it so that will help keep my phone safe :)

I'm seriously considering buying this phone. I've already been jealous with the Pixel camera, but that phone wasn't very good in other aspects. This one have OIS as well which is a must. The only thing that ick me is the lack of headphone jack, which I guess I can get by with an adapter. I just want stock-like Android with the best camera possible, that's my two most important feature.
