Dear gsmarena team, the HTC U11+ review is great as usal. But in one point im not d´accord with you: the batter life. I have this phone now since one week and I can honestly say, that this phone has a better battery life than a Samsung S8(+) or a Mate 10 Pro (which I also owned). So if you review unit is ok, someone make a mistake in the testing procedure. I got 6-8 hours SOT with 3 mail accounts, permanent sync on, wifi on, 4G LTE also on....I do a lot with my phones..with the HTC I have alwayws around 30-40 percent left at the end of the day. So something must be wrong with your review unit, this result is an fiasco for an mobile phone with that battery capacity! You have to make a second test with a diffent review unit!
They have made really great job of the camera. This new image sticking algorithm does an admirable job! Best low light samples in comparing tool

Last time I check they are among the most brilliance in terms of built.
Please don't insult common taste or your taste is actually for chinese crap
@gsmarena, guys you need to help us here understand, cause there's an elephant sitting in the room and almost all the comments pointed at him. Basically the u11+ has the same cpu, ram and storage as the u11, but 20% beeffier battery, slightly bigger screen and oreo onboard. Correct me if i'm wrong but I would have expected better battery life, similar to the s8+ or even better. The results are puzzling, 8 hours of web browsing and thta with a screen that tops out at 300 nits, I honestly don't understand it. Btw I had the m9 back in the days and it was topping around 4xx nits, which was a bit on the low end and you could immediately tell it. Pffffft now the u11+ is on my xmas shopping list and what i do hope is you had a deffective or pre production unit on your hands.
Anonymous, 28 Nov 2017Software plays huge part in camera performance.Yes but it is essentially the same unit with dual pixel autofocus. It was already lightning fast on the U11 and I doubt this can get slower to a point where you can even notice it. Software or not, HTC would not have reduced the speed of autofocus.
What about the DisplayPort feature? Why did you not test it?
All you need is a USB-C to HDMI cable and then hook up the phone to the TV and voila you get instantaneous real-time audiovisual transmission to the big screen.
How is it possible that it has Terrible battery life with such a big battery? It's probably flawed testing on gsm part

No double camera with 2x
No good battery
Out of the wish list...
nice phhone but useless.

These people may not have used it under strong sunlight and may have no idea brightness can't go higher. So what they are praising is colors. Actually funny how even GSMarena haven't mentioned it in the intro as disadvantage. So if they are not objective, i'd say they haven't stressed enough on disadvantages. LAck of dual cameras or wireless charging is hardly a disadvantage worth mentioning.
As for battery, there are great tests at Youtube, but just a review mentioning how great battery is? Well that's just pathetic.
