But it's impossible to argue with someone whose mind is set on hatred for any brand for no reason and the legion of sheep's who won't look beyond a single brand. Btw no need to be sorry. I know that was weird but it's only way to keep personal bias and salt out of an otherwise excellent device and pretty unbiased review. I have routinely derided Samsung fanboys too but guess it doesn't help much
Waleed Abdallah, 10 Jun 2017I'm very confused about the battery life because phonearena said in htc u11 great battery life... morewell, i looked a few reviews also and i agree with you. reviews about htc u11 are giving to much different information.. but most said it have from 1 to 4 hours more with ON screen than htc 10. my htc 10 give me already 1.5 day or more but usually i charge him every day with more than 15-20% of the battery (90% of the times) (the first thing i do is disable all background things i don't need that consume battery) so i will be happy with htc u11. never had a single problem with the battery and quick charge 3 helps. when i think i will need more juice later in the night..15m charge i've more than enough. i'm a app programmer and use my phone to test my apps all the time...and really never had an issue with battery in htc 10. i can only understand how people complain about battery, is because they don't have their phone optimized or have lots of apps on background receiving lots of notifications and msgs, draining battery . i don't use or have facebook or any other social media app, only snapchat that my girlfriend "obligated" me to install so she could send me fun pictures every day. my only real concern is the mics are 24/7 working to work as amazon echo (this is uge plus that most reviews ignore, first smartphone ever to have this feature, not like huawei implementation), but it must be also a battery drain, hope it can be turned off while i'm not at home, if not it's a waste of battery more than 18h a day.
when my htc u11 arrive i can give you a real life feedback, but i'm pretty much confidence will be better than my htc 10, which i'm happy already.

Anonymous, 10 Jun 2017Exactly peace....
I am not triggered. I don't have any hatred or anything towards any brand. ... moreOkay, but that's weird, that you suddenly just approached me and assumed that I'm being a fanboy.
Yes I am a Sony fanboy, but I just mess up with people who want to mess up with me.
If I was a bit salty to you, then I offer my apology to you.
And I'm also sorry for expressing myself and sound too much of a fanboy. I guess it's not a good idea to comment something a little different to the main subject, and next time, I'll try as much as I can to avoid mentioning different brands.
Waleed Abdallah, 10 Jun 2017I'm very confused about the battery life because phonearena said in htc u11 great battery life... moreBattery Life is excellent on this device despite the larger and QHD screen. My best SOT of this device is 7hours with light to semi heavy usage. I always got a consistent 5-6hours SOT on heavy usage (Gamings, Social medias,Youtube etc.) Note that I am using a test Unit and not on a final software, So expect a better battery performance on the Final Unit.
Yet another dongle phone. Xperia XZ Premium is much better with 3.5 mm jack, super slow motion and no so shamefully shiny (at least in black variant). Overall design is also more suitable for serious people. Even HTC 10 looks much better for wide audience.
HornPub, 10 Jun 2017Are you just triggered or something? 'Cause it's really pointless to waste my time typing here... moreExactly peace....
I am not triggered. I don't have any hatred or anything towards any brand. Including Samsung (I won't buy their phones though but I understand why people buy them) My first true smartphone was Sony. BTW by that speech you'll probably trigger a legion of fanboys of other companies
And TBH I do bring other companies discussion sometimes when I have to compare. Like what other companies have done wrong and where they messed up compared to Apple (not counted coz it has a legion of followers) and Samsung (sell the most). I want there to be more competition in mobile space to force true innovation rather than renovation of old stuff in new body. HTC has done good job. Sony too. Why can't they keep up their work to topple the duopoly.
I'm very confused about the battery life because phonearena said in htc u11 great battery life and better than Galaxy s8 plus and some reviews said great battery life and other reviews say not good. Here in gsmarena said it's not bad but not great. Who is correct? We want real opinion about battery life because it's very important for any one looking to buy new smartphone

Why did I bring Sony to this comment? 'Cause why not? Don't you bring other phones to other reviews, too? I doubt you don't.
Wake up and act your age - a person having his/her own preference is nothing to be mad about at.
You may be older than me, 'cause I'm just 14, but you act like my younger brother, especially with that attitude you have towards me.
Like I've said, don't take my opinion into consideration because that's just me, but you certainly have taken it too far, and I'm so disappointed with you.
The XZ Premium is far better than this toy, htc's unibody design with glass panels ?? Nah thats the worst thing ever on this phone..Glass panels are very beautiful for sony's omnibalance... still love m7's metal body
The best and quietly brilliant smartphone of 2017.... I just want U11 in Solar red so bad.. Damn its so gorgeous :)

even my old sony ericsson can do charging and output music at once,very pity for the smartfone,and icrap 7 cant do i it both too....thats funny

Btw u11 has cg5 on both sides
I trust gsma review more than Sony fans speech on camera and speakers. Tripod photography? I guess you are high on sony aid. Gotta keep that tripod in my pocket. Said no one ever
It is a stereo speaker. What part you don't when they say get the speaker hole is in bottom instead of front. Really? It's louder than anything out here
They've done audio test on both. Results are there to see. Stop marketing and open your eyes. Both are good phones and can co-exist
my s8 score 2008 / 6724 on bench do not overheat phone before bench

My gold S6edge plus looked nice buy was slightly distracting. The bezzels are bigger to accomidate the acoustic chambers for the speakers ( which is ome of the reasons i bought the phone)
The smartphone that is worth comparing against the XZ Premium in terms of innovative features and functions.
I'd still take the XZ Premium in the end because
1 - 960fps Slow Motion video is just an absolutely stunning and insane thing to be done by a smartphone even if not for a very long time.
2 - Headphone jack still exists, and audio quality out of it is one of the most impressive. U 11 doesn't do bad, but I wish they didn't remove it straight away 'cause I still have my 3.5mm headphones.
3 - Supports BT 5.0, which is more future proof. Surprisingly the U 11 lacks this.
4 - HDR display (not gonna bring 4K to the topic) which means great shadows and highlights with the most natural colors.
5 - Faster speed, at least at opening, and thus proven to be more consistent in performance. Even software updates are more up-to-date and faster.
XZ Premium already has 7.1.1 and June Security Update, while U 11 is still at 7.1 with May Security Update.
6 - Dual Front Stereo Speakers. U 11 is louder, but it just can't replace the quality of a true stereo speaker.
7 - Greater quality images, that is if you know how to handle it in low light. GSMArena themselves already admit that the XZ Premium is unmatchable in low light tripod, but I don't take low light photos that often. For that, I always have my DSLR on my side, but daylight shots matter more, and nothing could rival the XZ Premium for that.
8 - Greater build, IP67 vs IP68. Numbers don't mean everything, so we'll see. And to mention as well that the XZ Premium has Gorilla Glass 5 on both front and rear glass. U 11 only has Gorilla Glass 5 on the front but 3 at the back.
But please, don't take my opinion into consideration.
I would take the XZ Premium for those reasons above, but doesn't mean I don't like the U 11. I still do, and I believe it's one of the best flagships of 2017, just that it doesn't have many features that suits me the most like what the XZ Premium can. But I won't be mad at using it, 'cause I still prefer the U 11 over the S8 twins, G6, P10 twins, iPhone 7 twins, Pixel twins, and the upcoming OP5
