The phone itself is solid, but at that price... no thanks.
A snapdragon 636 or above should be more than enough for my daily usage.. Had there been a U12 with a midrange SoC and a more pocket-friendly price things would differ
HTC price always to higher side comparison HTC to lower price too many option in market
Wishlist for 2019 HTC
U13 with 5.5" 16:9 LCD , 12MP selfie, 16 + 12 MP rear , 3500mAh
U13 Pro with 6" 18:9 oled, 16MP selfie, 16 + 16 MP rear, 3750mAh
Both with IP68, front speakers, dual + sd slot
I honestly would...had the battery life been better (well...we'll have to see how it's optimized but 3,500 mAH is like borderline).
The camera looks fantastic, stereo speakers, 6GB RAM, 2K display, and wide angle lens to boot but if the battery isn't that great, there's no point. Also I'm on Sprint and HTC won't stick CDMA on it so there's that.
Already bought an S9, if the HTC just released it earlier i would definitely buy it instead.
The phone is solid in every aspect and i wont get burn with the super screen.
GSM can do without their ongoing negative overture in presenting something with a positive negative. You never do it with anyone else like you do with HTC and it gets noticed.
Anonymous, 27 May 2018Ppl complain about LCD but forget that : Laptops are LCD Most TVs are LCD Electronics ... moreThose people who want OLED probably do nothing but lay in bed all day in the dark so they want that perfect black
I would choose any flagship that isn't iPhones or Galaxy Ss because I'd like to be different!
Ellio74, 27 May 2018My XZ Premium does have all of that! LolYes..
Sony and HTC are my favorite. I want XZ2 Premium, also wish I could buy a HTC with similar aspacts
Ppl complain about LCD but forget that :
Laptops are LCD
Most TVs are LCD
Electronics outdoors are LCD
When you go out to see those silly action blockbursters, screen is LCD
AnonD-145316, 27 May 2018Wake up!! Nowdays we don't complain about 3.5mm audio hack its a trend now. The goodness with ... moreToo expensive for what it is. There are better options such as Samsung Galaxy Note 8 & Huawei Mate 10 series.
They both cost around $700 now and both have better cameras and screens.
This device should vost no more than $600.
Would you buy an HTC U12+ ?
Expensive. No front-firing stereo loudspeakers. Too fragile. No 3.5mm aux port. Lower battery capacity than expected. Questionable design and build. Too tall. Still using LCD display. Quite poor software support. Less accessories than iPhone/Galaxy.
If I wanted something that shiny, I'd stick to an iPhone X or a Nokia 8 Sirocco. But probably better to grab a Samsung S9+, or a masculine S9 Active if they ever release it for worldwide. Heck, I'd even settle for a ZTE Axon 9 or OnePlus 7 (No notch, No rear-glass, All ports).
Its a beast with many one of the kind features and consistent performance. Why not?
Anonymous, 27 May 2018I would buy if it had 5.5" 16:9 4K Front speakers like old HTC flagships Headphone jackMy XZ Premium does have all of that! Lol
If I didn't have my current phone, I would for sure, HTC phones have always been great and I like the design this time.
