I had to return my unit as it had a pinkish hue, specially at the "edges" the color balance get totally off even if you slightly tilt the phone. All this rave about S8 screen is hoax!

And definitely better battery life. Aesthetically u11 has nice shining cover, but S8 is beauty on a front with infinity display, Cameras one of the best on boths, software support and features are usually strongest on Samsung side, I don't know how good is edge feature on U11, but sounds like a gimmicks to me, sound yes is better on U11, fast charging is blazing fast on S8 from 0 to 100 1:30 half of charging, in overall U11 it is definitely not better than S8, even is a matter of personal opinion, but facts definitely doesn't go for U11 as winner against S8
[deleted post]It has to do with marketing and revenue...
Samsung and Apple market the hell out of their products. Everyone knows about them, and people buy what they know or see.
Tons of people in the USA don't even know what HTC is, let alone that they make smartphones...
Just chatted with HTC and they say the 128GB version available for the U.S. market only has 4 GB RAM. Is 6 GB RAM for the U.S. fake news?
Anonymous, 25 Jul 2017Regret? Lol HTC is much better than Samsung.Don't try to pass off your opinion as fact, otherwise HTC would be where Samsung currently is lol
"...most other smartphone makers are hesitant to offer more than 4GB of RAM in smartphones for the US market," that's because us Americans care more about the overall aspect of a phone instead of just cheap specs lol it's no wonder the top two brands here continue to be Apple and Samsung.

I have been using this phone for one week now , 128GB / 6GB RAM , BY ALL TERMS this is the best phone i have ever used in my life , very fast very smooth with so many options with comparison to all other phone , With All Due respect this is the best of the best (Value for money) and thats why Samsung got a deduction on its S8 however still this HTC U11 worth way more than any other phone

1 Best camera with ultraspeed auto focus & best low light image captures second to none.
2 brilliant audio w/ 360° sound zoom recording, powerful top and bottom boomsound
3 Edge sense that taking your pictures underwater easy
4 Beautiful Liquid glass surface with optical spectrum hybrid deposition.
5 3D glass screen with no distorted colors at the edge that are the results you can expect from a curved s8 screen
6 USonic earphones with hires audio and active noise cancellation, delivers cinematic sound compared to any others OEM 3.5mm earphones provided in the box
7 Qualcomm latest SD835, unlike G6 old 821 chipset and Rapid charging 3.0 compared to s8 only 2.0
For me there's not even a contest... U11 beats g6 or s8 on many innovations and HTC is just brilliant this year.
Anonymous, 25 Jul 2017Regret? Lol HTC is much better than Samsung.It's not that simple my friend. Because who is better regarding particular things (specs, features, prices, etc) and who on others. The best judgment that one (an individual) can perform, is by judging the overall, but even by considering that, it's not so easy neither, and because finally it is subjective.
Obviously, it is much better now, that HTC is offering a 6GB/128GB variant of the U11. Additionally, hopefully all the top bogs (brands) will start offering their flagships (at least) with a 6GB RAM as standard (again, at least. To currently don't include a 128GB internal storage as well). What's more, definitely well done to HTC for all the discounts on the previous phones (flagships, etc).
I own it (6GB, RAM, 128 GB). It is a very good phone, super fast, fast charging and a great camera. I preferred to have HTC U11 instead of S8, and I don't regret at all. The 'Amazing Silver' is eye-catching.
is there any problem with US market or something? because htc only had 4gb ram at the first release, while other country got 6gb ram
Oh come on!!! I just exchanged my HTC U11 Black with the Solar Red one. Now if the new variant comes with 6gb of ram, I'll start having an itch again to exchange it!
