It's usefull, the only thing here is that it loses in durability against other flagships... other than that I'm always squeezing my phone and it's new, no scratches, marks, bends or whatsoever!
They're going to keep this squeeze nonsense, despite the fact that just adding another button would provide the same functionality while still being usable in a protective case. It also causes phones with this nonsense built in to bend rather easily:
After the flop with my HTC 10, I will never buy a HTC device again. No more.
But they still can't squeeze in the headphone jack. Shame. Shame. Shame.
This obsession with removing the headphone jack is stupid. They just create more wear on the USB-C or Lightning port leading to earlier port replacement for the charging port. But that's what companies want: people spending more money getting new phones because their old one breaks because of intentional poor design choices.
Finally sense prevailed in HTC camps... I am glad did not buy S8 due to finger print placement... will most probably buy this one...
Ritzie, 01 Nov 2017Any HTC U11 owners out there? How's the OS performance so far for both gaming and daily usage?It's great! Best phone I ever had. And the battery is surprisingly good for just 3000mah. The jack should have been there, but to be honest, I don't missed it for my use. Always Bluetooth headset anyway. Have a nice day :)
Probably they mean they squeeze in more (longer) screen space, battery capacity as well.

Text is so incomplete.
Should be "Even more squeezed in to the market where only Samsung and Apple are considered as smartphone brands."
So sad, but let's be honest, it's true.
davexe, 01 Nov 2017Fantastic, smooth like a butter. I heard there were microstutters with GPU-demanding games.
I have watched alot of gaming reviews on YouTube and so far it has been very decent.
They probably mean more (longer) screen space squeezed in, battery capacity as well.
Anyway, who's feeling the squeeze already??

Squeezing your video into a narrow 18:9 when you really wanted a bigger 16:9. Enjoy "reading the shampoo bottle". Meme alert.
jrharbort, 01 Nov 2017But did they squeeze in a headphone jack as well? *Drops mic*They hadn't space in their brains for it. But they added new amazing materials to the side and the back, now you can squeeze it, bend it and keep beautiful and colourful pieces of glass in the hand. Amazing innovation!
I've seen the video leaks title HTC U11 PLUS, posted on youtube yesterday.
And it's legit! Showing both U11+ and U11 life hands on and new features of sense,
Animated side circling apps which looks cool!
Sense UI can do some refreshment after it stalled and feel bit dated.
The dimension is true to rumour, 158.2 x 74.6 x 9.1 mm
whiich is sad, because V30 with the same 6" screen have shorter form factor.
Only 151.7mm tall and make it the most beautiful android phone 2017 IMO
I'm HTC fans, but congrats LG!!
Hoping it translates to LG sales because it's truly a brilliant phone
