Today my Xperia Z2 drop again on asphalt road, the phone still fine and I don't put any case on it. The quality is simply amazing, but it frame get some scratches, that's why a good case to fit the phone is very important too.

Samsung SIII, HTC ONE MAX, HTC U Ultra.
But thanks to friends and Family I get hands on time on other phones because we don't all buy the same brand or model.

Of the top of my head I have had the following,m7,m8,m9,htc10 and now u11 and I have also had the LG g3,g4,g5,v10 and I also had a oneplus two at one time and the phones I have just said there are others to in the past.
I like my tech :)

I try to get 2 - 3 years out of a phone before I upgrade. So I tend to buy at near release date to get the full 18 months experience of updating. And in the year after the updates stop I start looking for a new phone.
I know there will be people reading the opinions on here regarding this phone and they will be deciding whether to part with there hard saved money if you is buying it sim free like I did and after 7 days of using this phone as my daily driver and I am a heavy user also I must say I do recommend it and to be honest the only thing I could say is kinda wrong with it is that the phone is unbelievably slippery if not in a case but otherwise the u11 shines in every area of what a smartphone should be able to do.
I can honestly say it blows the htc10 out of the water and its easily a match for my G5 which I personally thought is better than the htc10 but the u11 is definitely one of the best phones this year.
I would say if I thought it was rubbish but honestly this phone is one of the best HTC has made in years and I think I will use this for a year before I get something else and I do usually get a new phone maybe every 6 months or so.
Received this phone 2 days ago.. Amazing device! Build quality is beautiful, solid. Camera is good enough for me, vivid and sharp photo is guarantee. I'm satisfied.. I'm not a HTC, Sony, Apple, Huawei or Samsung fan, but a ordinary person who love technology and always try the new things. Buy whatever u like, and enjoyed it!

I can CONFIRM that HTC DID certify VoLTE with T-Mobile on the unlocked U11, so if you have the unlocked U11 and are using T-Mobile, then just like with the unlocked 10, you WILL be able to use VoLTE (and Wi-Fi Calling)!!
See here for proof:

I've been u... moreOK, I'll take your advice and ask first.
Have you dropped your U11 out of a case as yet? I would like to know your experience with that.
I made my comment because of your comment about HTC drop test, not your experience of the fall you had.
And some people seem to think gorilla glass scratch resistants also makes is shatter resistant(like its some new glass with the properties of steel). So I'm not attacking this phone (I know what I said is a general statement about all glass back phones) I'm just telling people what could happen if your not careful, seeing that I can't find a single drop test video for the U11 or U Ultra on YouTube. But if you have a link to that too, please post it.
U11 The Best Smartphone of 2017 overall in all aspects owning both s8+(exynos) and U11 the UI performance and audio capabilities offered by u11 are far better than s8+ which suffers from micro stutters and lag occasionally as well as similar battery life and camera performance. Super amoled display is obviously better on s8+ but is not as vibrant as s7 edge and has black bars unless stretching and full screen application is used but the slcd 5 panel on u11 is the best display as far as slcd is concerned very good and vibrant. The fingerprint sensor is better situated and faster on u11 which is awkwardly placed on s8+ making it unusable and leaving fingerprint marks on the camera which can be annoying and other methods like iris scanner and facial recognition are not the best options to unlock the device, edge sense on u11 is something I love using its not as gimmicky as it sounds and is very practical in day to day use although limited for now maybe will have more options in the future, one feature that I love the most on s8+ is Samsung pay which is unfortunately not available on u11. Both phones are good and have their pros and cons but for me U11 is better overall performer and is cheaper than s8 which makes it a better option to go for here in India
It really seems that HTC is properly back with the new U11..finally I'd say.But 800$ price,common.Reduce it to 500$,and you'll be selling it like candys,you'll kill the market,no more Sams,Lg,Apples..

I've been using the U11 and the battery life is phenomenal.
What you're talking is absolute rubbish.

And it's absolutely fine. It's unfortunate what happened to you with your Ultra but that isn't representative of the general durability of the U Series. It was a one off case and that's all it is just like one time the M9 fell from a decent distance but I needed to get it replaced. Luck also comes into play with these sort of things.

The battery life on U11 has proven to be better or on par with many other smartphones... Don't just come here n talk like that, plz go n get the phone first n try it out...

For a 750 eur its too much. Oneplus 5 cost 500 and is hundred times better than this fragilie junk.
