Anonymous, 19 Jun 2017htc phones of coz are fragile, u ultra and u11 can be easily bended, plenty of YouTube videos ... moreThis is my 5th consecutive HTC phone going back to the Incredible. I have never had a hardware or software problem on any of them, not one. I will say the battery life has been so so until this phone. The U11 has been getting 24 hours on battery(I only need about 16 for my life) and is lightning fast with everything that is important to me. The s8 was just not my thing and the U11>>>than the G6 after using both. I wasn't thrilled they went with glass, but they need to sell phones I guess. Agree to disagree, go back to your Sony forum, no need for you to be here trolling people who enjoy HTC.

people in Asia here will not buy HTC and there are lots of quality issues on u11. there is lots of HTC employee in this comment section to convince ppl to buy the phone.
but only stupid ppl will buy HTC phone. :)

-the power consumption v5.... moreyou know that android 7 doesn't support bluetooth 5.0 right? and htc have same processor 835, that support bluetooth 5.0 right? not this year any will have a device that will support it right? some companies like to brag about some things..others likes to be realistic. htc 10 already had stereo sound, The HTC 10 uses a new speaker configuration where a full range speaker is placed at the top of the phone (where the earpiece is positioned) and a bottom firing speaker for lower frequency sounds. they never pointed as stereo speakers, because even if technically they were, they didn't mention it on paper because it was not a true stereo configuration. other companies that uses the exact same approach, guess how they marketing their devices....stereo phones...
bluetooth 5.0 is a great feature on paper..on real life....only usefull on 2 or 3 years..best headphones right now are bluetooth 4.0 not even 4.2 they are. not to mention other devices that are way behind that protocol. there are some people that only look for paper specs..they don't have a clue how real world works..because they don't have real world experience. for example, i saw a guy that have samsung s8, lg g6 and htc u11. he said, samsung s8 is fast, lg g6 is smooth. htc u11 is fast and smooth. on paper samsung s8 should give you better experience than lg g6 but because of is UI it doesn't provide it. only real people that uses phones in real life can tell you that. your opinion is based on paper/specs review. it's sad and it denotates some imaturety in your part. i can't explain to people that have different vision that i do...and frankly i don't care....keep your great smartphone that i will keep mine.

Techns, 14 Jun 2017Are you seriosu? Htc use LPDDR4X this prove you know nothong about tech and just liar. the memory in snapdragon 835 system on chip is lpddr4, it doesn't means the ram used in the phone would be ddr4. just like the memory of huawei kirim 660 or 665 and snapdragon 820 and 821 are all lpddr4, but there are plenty of the phone with these chips inside are used with ddr3 ram.
that's why smart people will not use htc :)
Moreover, from the video of jerryrigeverthing in YouTube, u11 is proved to have crap build quality. I am not surprised as HTC phones are always fragile.

-the power consumption v5.0 is more saving
-the connection range v5.0 is 4x higher than v4.2
-the security control v5.0 is better the v4.2
-the reliability v5.0 is high while the v4.2 is low
.....other benefits you may refer:
The image quality is great on both phone, Dxomark didn't review the full review of Xperia XZ premium and we take the blind camera test as the accurate results, because it may vary between person that use the camera. Furthermore the larger image already stretching to fit with the competitors in the blind test, that's unfair, if they can't unfair like this so they must be also bias on one side.
ADI, 18 Jun 2017That's a very good news, which colour are you getting for U11? amazing silver. i wish there was red on stock, but i cant wait another month :)
never had a crazy phone before..always gone super discrete phones..guess is time to change that.

Plastic soap container. No metal body, no audio jack, no previous good M8/M9 design. Not worth any money (for me).

please don't compare "virtual" sound to real 360º. go to your basement. you don't have a clue what you're saying.

2. 4x4 mimo, check.
3. yes with other name.
4. no. you ... moreHaha funny fellah...alexa is just htc's version of bixby...in other words useless bloatware. Google now is enough. Talking of 360° sound, ever heard virtual surround sound on xperias?
Htc still got some catching up to match the quietly brilliant Sony Xperias
Hope to see more small and yet powerful phones in the size of 4.7" or not larger than 5".
acemang, 13 Jun 2017htc u11:
1. cat 16, check.
2. 4x4 mimo, check.
3. yes with other name.
4. no. you ... moreNo.1 and no.2 is okay, I agree with you.
But NO. 3, I can't find the feature with other name, I mean the Predictive Capture:
I check it the HTC U11 don't come with any Predictive Capture like IMX400 do, you may
check it yourself:
4, 960p slow motion is personal preference, just like you love to bring the connector for using 3.5mm jack at this century, this is all about personal.
5, Qnovo battery adapting charging will keeping the battery health and durable than usual battery charging tech, it can double up the battery lifespan. It is the benefit for sealed battery at this moment and it is also support Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0
6, the waterproof feature IP65/68 is better than IP67, this is because:
- IP 65, the IP X5 is state that the water projected by a nozzle (6.3 mm) against enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effects.permitted.
- IP 68, the IP X8 is protected from immersion in water with a depth of more than 1 meter (manufacturer must specify exact depth)
- IP 67, the IP X7 is only protected from immersion in water with a depth of up to 1 meter (or 3.3 feet) for up to 30 mins
therefore, the IP65 and IP68 is better than which only have IP67.
7, the laser autofocus work better in night or low light conditions and the RGB-IR sensor is still better in any light conditions. The software must has it limitation to against hardware, do you agree?
8, UFS 2.1 storage, HTC didn't state that in their official site but HTC has been ensure that they will use the UFS 2.1 storage for HTC U11, sadly, I can't find the HTC official announcement news, so weird!
9, the 4K HDR display is way better and the X-Reality image tech is way better ( such as Pixel reproduction, Texture and outline improvement, Noise Reduction) that you can't find it on other smartphone.
10, the music wireless true king must have the IDAC audio technology, the smartphone speaker must have it limitation for it speakers, so the wireless is the way to release the truth power. Obviously, HTC just don't have IDAC. The earphone music listening I listen mp3 and CD sound with near high-res quality which is very important to me.
11, Edge sense is nice, but when you take the HTC U11 from a table will you "squeeze" to direct launch something while it is wake up? I am not sure about it.
12, compare to alexa full support, I rather prefer the have the latest Bluetooth support, it obviously the HTC U11 only support Bluetooth v4.2, just same that isn't the latest Bluetooth v5.0. What is the pros with Bluetooth v5.0, I think you have to know:
13, 360° sound video record is cool, but this feature is not benefit for every people, because you will only use 2 speakers to reproduce the sound. I can use 3.5mm earphone in a simple way in this century, I am not chasing any gimmicks.
14, the awesome back, liquid screen still can't pass the Jerryrigeverythings durable test. looks like the front display is more weaker than the back glass.
15, UI sense is n.2 UI, just another preferences, but light skin is way better, because the update will show you some lag feel, unless the software is lightweight.
16, Power button with fingerprint sensor is very nice, I don't find any problem with it. The US region only has something insufficient not the worldwide. Press and direct unlock is the phone is the faster way and convenience, even Apple also want to learn from this fingerprint feature.
17, cheaper must have it reasons. do you see the dissembling of HTC U11?
18, the Xperia's apps is very nice, I recommend you the Album, Music, Sketch,Movie Creator, Weather, TrackID......
