HTC's old display tech must be preventing their phones from getting above average battery life. Most flagships today can achieve 10+hrs on browsing and video tests of GSMa.
Hi Ricky, I'm from Indonesia and your fan. I'm HTC fanboy either. So, reading this review makes me feel happy...hahaha
I've seen budget smarthpnoes with better lab results than this
HTC, what is going on in there ??!
Kraitos, 21 Jun 2018Thanks again GSMA. This review convinced me to go after the HTC U11+, or the Note 8 post price... moreSo you saw a bad phone and you though to go after two other bad phone? O.o
...bezelled phones are over. Samsung achieves high bts ratio using a gimmick and has bezels where it matters. If you want the future see vivo nex and oppo find x like designs...
Huawei p20's cameras...
Sad that non chinese companies are so left behind by now. Those bezeled phones seem straight from last century. Low effort, low quality... begone HTC. Just die already...
The back cam now performs worser than it did on HTC U11+. Both daytime and night
htc brand is generally good...but since release a flagship like this... well screen is poor when it comes to brightness and color accuracy is off and the not so great battery life with this asking price....well no wonder htc is failing...its a shame cuz they need a hit..n this feels like more a miss than a hit....its a good lookin phone tho
vrvly, 21 Jun 2018Feels like U11+ is better, camera actually got worse? Even screen is dim...Try Android Headlines's U12+ camera video review.
Still running my M9 but the battery is finally beginning to give out so was waiting to see if the 12+ would be worth getting. from what i've seen i'd rather get the 11 the trend for these large phones makes no sense to me as it increases the chance of them falling out of pockets. and the 11 is large enough, what i find kind of funny is the packaging is identical to the 11 and so is the contents. i'll save myself some cash and get the 11 for 450.
vrvly, 21 Jun 2018Feels like U11+ is better, camera actually got worse? Even screen is dim...Also, U11+ has a better battery life!
This new device is such a disappointment on everything and that huge price asked.
Another great phone by HTC with "great" battery!! Ha ha!! Great job HTC. You'll sell like crazy. Again...
Anonymous, 21 Jun 2018Photo tool samples of S9+ are better, XZ2 much better. Feels like U11+ is better, camera actually got worse? Even screen is dim...
How come the battery life is poor in such a wonderful device? I hope this is not the final version of the device. :( ... I was actually wanting to buy it soon because I love HTC Smartphones.
GSMarena should retry battery test with Chrome browser and MX video player. Maybe problem is with HTC native browser and video player.
How do HTC engineers get up in the morning knowing full well that their products are $#!+???
Instead of making better products to dig it self from the ditch HTC makes this garbage.
I was huge fan of HTC in the era of HTC Touch HD and "One" line, but last few years they just cant make a decent phone,always something missing.
Anonymous, 21 Jun 2018XZ Premium with 5.5" 16:9 4K 807ppi + LCD + playing 4K videos had 72 hours. Battery is 3230mAh... moremate 10 pro has AMOLED Not LCD
and also has display with 1080 x 2160 pixels but U12+ has display with 1440 x 2880 pixels
U12+ use Adreno 630 but mate 10 use
Mali-G72 MP12 and every one knows mali is cheaper, weaker and use less battery.
and 4000 mAh.
so are you thinking U12+ has bad battery ?
and more battery life is funny when you should recharge your phone everyday. and no difference between phones, except nokia 1100.
