652 is old chipset. May be HTC help Qualcomm to clear old stock and got it with low price. Only way to make it competitive is paired with a big battery
It could tack up pretty good with samsung a8+ with dual front camera . If priced correctly then it may be a better choice nd also it has same rear camera of u11 which is great also sd652 is ok but newer would be better . Design wise its gorgeous . But shit still don't have headphone jack ! a8 has .
sd 652 quite solid performance, but now 2018
at least sd660 for that price
kamel alg, 16 Jan 2018Why are so many people complaining about the price? Sure it's an overpriced device but still c... moreyou should not compare this device with A8 or A8 PLUS
you must compare it with A9 PRO(2016) & C9 PRO
because both of them have 6inch display & 4000Mah , 5000Mah BATTERY with SD652 & SD653 chipset
also both of them upgradable to ANDROID 7
you can find A9 PRO 2016 for 335$ us
C9 PRO 376$ us with 6GB ram
despite its popularity back in the day, does it make sense to use Snapdragon 652 inside a $500 HTC U11 Eyes upper mid-ranger announced in 2018?
To be honest, using Snapdragon 653 would have made more sense. ItÂ’s slightly faster, features a new generation X9 LTE modem, and is just over a year old. ItÂ’s like a refreshed SD652, with small upgrades. The performance is slightly better given its higher clock speed, and it scores around 90,000 points vs 78,000 by SD652 in the AnTuTu benchmark. Similar difference can be found in other benchmark scores as well
Don't know WHY these guys bother making another "ho hum" phone with nothing going for it and at a high price point? Just give up and go home. Either you're in the game or you're not, and you HTC are clearly NOT.
Why are so many people complaining about the price? Sure it's an overpriced device but still cheaper than the A8+ and looks better for me
It's looking so beautiful but somehow the U11 is the best looking of all them with this new HTC design and the liquid design or whatever it's called. This phone in solar red will be the best color for me.
TBH I feel like it's going to perform okay. I'm saying this because many people use the zte zmax pro in my school and they say there performance is great, except for one person. That phone having a Snapdragon 617, this phone should be able to live up to your demands

htc, are you kidding me , please wake up, dont sleep. snapdragon 652 is outdated, and the price so expensive, if your sell 250 EUR, maybe hot sell.
Again no 3.5mm jack, come on! Why not to make it yet because many use such headphones and will use.
Too expensive for a mid-tier device. Also, why not the Snapdragon 660? 652 is too weak for 2018 demands.
to be honest, this device deserves a $300 price tag max. The soc is from 2016, NO HEADPHONE JACK, if i need a waterproof mid-ranger i can pick Galaxy A8+, A8, A720, S7 edge (its cheap) etc. not a sub-par IP67 rating phone. good luck competing with Oneplus HTC ... WTF, it even has no radio!! mid rangers should always have these things: headphone jack, large battery (thats okay for this one), radio, sd card slot, duo sim
Vineet290, 15 Jan 2018What's that 4th soft button on right side??Maybe split screen quick toggle option.
Very nice phone with very strong sd652 processor with
Nice 18.9 lcd ratio....shall this be released here in philippines??
500 Â€?For that price one plus 5t or Xiaomi mi 6 for 380Â€ with also far better specs.
