I like HTC's features but camera for sure goes to the S8.
Still not of a big difference to get the better speakers of the U 11, though S8 has a headphone jack.
So I tested the XZ Premium against the U11, U11 had so much more detail and better colour. The front camera on the XZ struggled in low light and the sound through the speakers on the U11 wipe the floor on the XZ. I even compared the slow more and although really slow, really dark and grainy on the XZ.
The U11 is the phone to be followed by the S8.

AnonD-251354, 24 May 2017XZ Premium beat them allYes but in low-light it suffers more than other phones
Seriously, most of the differences mentioned between the phones are nit-picking and you could never go wrong with either of these phones. Both of them look very stunning.
Going by daylight samples, can I safely say that U11 samples are consistently warm (yellowish tint) OR that S8 samples are consistently cool (bluish tint)?
Which one is truer to reality then??
Though I'd have liked a lil smaller bezels on U11, or a bigger battery.
U11 wins, by a hair.
BTW, I'm getting U11. firstly was unimpressed, but now I'm liking it.
Flat screen - check
Richer sound - check
Nice bezels - check
Camera - same, best.
Looks - U11 has more character on back. and I hate curved screen so I'm going with U11.
Waterproof - almost same... Piece of mind.
in matter of super fast focuses, i thinck it was first intorduced in asus zefone 3 ... but never laid my hands on one to see for myself. it is all SONY i know simply because i saw it in their website ... where explain the chipsets and technology.
Can you do the comparison with HTC10 ? please. I really want to see how much of the improvement (esp. low light perf.) despite U11 having smaller sensor size than 10. Because I'm hesitating whether to upgrade or not.

Two top phones...good show from both of them...will remain at the top I think until the Nokia 9 comes along
Eventually something is able to compete with Samsung in low light shooting
That's literally the worst excuse for not doing a blind test between the the two
