It might get a price drop to become more competitive, still it feels more like a downgrade than an upgrade. Paying more for less features doesn't sound quite right.
HTC has those amazing headphones, but if you happen to lose them/break them there's no alternative but to carry a c to 3.5 :/

128GB S9+ Current 890 USD against U12+ 940 USD?
2160p@60fps/1080p@240fps + 720p@960fps = S9+
Dual: 8 MP (f/2.0, 1.12µm), 1080p is better or
Single: 8 MP (f/1.7, 1.22µm), 1440p + Iris Scanner?
3.5mm is still alive somewhere and of course in our available high end earphones.
3.5mm + USB-C is better than 3.5mm to USB-C.
Too Late Too Late
r, 27 May 2018this pole doesn't make sense. Mark my word this phone won't sell well. I predict [albeit sadly :-( ] you are right.
Anonymous, 27 May 2018Ppl complain about LCD but forget that : Laptops are LCD Most TVs are LCD Electronics ... more That new movie 'Solo' has a lot of garbage acting and way too many explosions. 'Avengers: Infinity War' is for little kids. 'Deadpool 2' is/was funny, and definitely doesn't take itself very seriously. I have all three. If you're guessing I go to movies often you are correct.
AnonD-481725, 27 May 2018Already bought an S9, if the HTC just released it earlier i would definitely buy it instead. Ditto.
GSM ARENA: I am undecided about this phone. Would have been nice to have an "unsure" option/choice in this survey.

Ironically, we have a huawei Y5 in the family, which sucks in every aspect, yet managed to give the same mildly slow experience for two years now, same response time from day one till now with almost every social media app installed. To me, the Y5 is better since we got what we paid for.
I'd buy it if a 3.5mm jack, IR blaster and FM radio was present and the battery also carried over from its predecessor not freaking downgraded.
If a OEM deprives a newer generation out of something that the previous generation device had then its a automatic no.
I would buy it if it becomes cheaper which will happen sooner or later.
Right now it ain't worth it.
And btw DXO means nothing !
P20 PRO best camera in the world according to them but in actual comparisons it looks worse than a OnePlus for some important aspects like Video.
No wireless charging killed this for me and the lack of a headphone jack adapter.
I might cuz there is no notch and I have always wanted a transparent phone.
It's a good phone, but it's way too expensive - there are alternatives offering most of its goods but costing way less.
Much better than Samsung S9. Let's see how it will compete with Sony XZ2. Sony is famous for it's smooth software. So wait and see.
Anonymous, 27 May 2018I believe Htc will make U12 Life ( android one) with SD 636 or 640Maybe, but it might have downgraded camera and other hardware.
Even though I hate Samsung, at least their S9 and S9+ deliver comparable photos, and save for a few differences, the hardware is almost the same.
