Dear GSMArena, may I request to please make a blind comparison of these phones. GALAXY S8 vs HTC U11 and Pixel XL. that way we can determine which is better if you compare them side by side. Thank you in advance :)
ADI, 11 Jun 2017Well! He even said audio on Htc is not better than others! Do u think so? Htc's camer... moreWhere did you analyse those photos? On their respective screen? If that's the case you will not arrive at the best point of comparison? What is your basis of comparison? Do you know what dynamic range, color saturation,exposure, depth of field, etc.? If you don't even have any idea of those I mentioned then stop saying is better between the two because you don't know how to analyse a particular camera.
[deleted post]I beg to disagree, I think sony xzp is the phone of the year functionality speaking. See some speed test out there in youtube .
Are people still arguing which phone has a better camera than the other???!! Nowdays every flagship phone has up their game interms of cameras and you will barely notice the difference in photo quality between these phones, So pick your poison and live with it!!
Nleft74, 11 Jun 2017I beg to disagree on better camera. Try watching the camera review of pocketnow in YouTube and... moreWell!
He even said audio on Htc is not better than others! Do u think so? Htc's camera can't be inferior to that S8. Its definitely better than S8 coz my friend has both S8 n U11 n i have seen the comparison HTC's shots ends up being much better than those with S8. Colours are over saturated in pics taken with S8, while the U11 produces natural and true colours of life.
ADI, 10 Jun 2017I hope u r not a Htc hater .. lol ... If u cant accept its the best phone of 2017.. then thats... moreI beg to disagree on better camera. Try watching the camera review of pocketnow in YouTube and you will see that its camera is inferior to samsung. I'm not a fan of samsung especially the gimmicky curve screen. Stabilization on video is far better with sony except for lowlight stills which sony is very underwhelming maybe because their phones don't have OIS.
16.1mp 1/2" sensor, f1.4 lens, 26mm sensor, manipulatable OIS (can be turned on and off anytime) + EIS sensor shifting (ala-SteadyShot, for videos), 1.4um pixel size.
Pair with 1.0 sharpening and 0.5 noise reduction along with Google HDR+ processing. A dream photography smartphone.
Please do this.
acemang, 10 Jun 20171 - 960 fps is a real nice thing to have to show your friends or make some cool videos time to... moreWow you seriously took it too far.
I said to not take my opinion into consideration, but I can forgive it since you can still have your own choice.
Just got my U11 today, replacing my HTC 10.
The speakers​ of U11 is very impressive. The sound output is a lot improved compare to HTC 10. The treble and base speakers mix very well in U11, unlike HTC 10.
However, the HTC USonic earphone is not impressive.
First, the cable is short. I am a short Asian guy (5 ft 6), the length of the cable is just okay for me. For tall folks the cable may not be long enough.
Second, the active noise cancellation from USonic is weak. The tip does not have a good seal for passive isolation either.
For using headphone jack with adapter in U11, the is no individual sound profile for it (I cannot find the option to enable it)... In HTC 10 you can have different profile for different headphone. I do not expect U11 would be losing such nice feature.
Overall the phone is pretty solid, very attractive. I got the blue color one.😊
In the studio pics the U11 looks a touch better than the S8 in good light. In the low light pics studio the S8 certainly preforms better which is a bit surprising.
The squeeze function could be useful to open the camera for example when taking it out of your pocket. That way the camera would be fully loaded by the time you've pointed your phone at something, then it's squeeze again to capture the image.
Everythings a gimmick till you find a use for it.
Levy, 10 Jun 2017The phone is too large and too boring; those huge bezels makes it look like a 2015 model. Whil... moreif it got bezel, doesn't mean it is outdated, trend sheep is always trend sheep, if bezel really determined the modern look of a phone, i can say xperia zl and sharp aquos xx is better than s8, with minimal bezel and 16:9 aspects ratio,
If squeeze really is gimmick, at least it's not a gimmick that got in way on the screen like distorting the screeen(read: edge)
in your camera compare tool ، in low light texts under color checker shows us that U11 is absolutely out of focus and i found no other phone like this in your tool (even undated camera of HTC 10 which after updates is way more accurate than your samples did not had such problem at launch) i think something is wrong with low light shot. please check again and let us know if it is U11s fault or yours.
Looking on the phone itself is kinda awkward, I don't really know what's the reason why.
Fitbri, 10 Jun 2017All up a brilliant job HTC. I have had a few handsets ow and totally trust your builds, Htc On... moreThats really good to hear.. Please share us your thoughts about the new U11 and Which colour did u select for U11? :)
[deleted post]I hope u r not a Htc hater .. lol ... If u cant accept its the best phone of 2017.. then thats your opinion. In my opinion its just better than S8 Garbage in every way.. U11 has way better software handling, better ram management, better camera, better audio, better performance, a great design, will always lasts longer than any Galaxy lag phones and is just stunning in Solar Red n Amazing Silver :)
