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.
meh, battery life aside (with the promised software update for the buttons confirmed to be in the works), if you want the best dual-camera set up available, this phone is your phone. Waiting for Amazon to confirm shipment :)
Brghtiness even worst than U11 what’s worn with you HTC.
Its amazing theyre not bankrupt yet considering this is the only business theyre in with no other profitable divisions to keep them afloat.
Without a good battery life, it is of no use even if it can fly...
HAHA "HTC had to lower the screen brightness keep the battery life in check" 64H endurance is awful this is one of the reasons they are going down the pan.
Battery life is terrible actually and it should be compared to the U11+ and not U11.
Nick Tagataka, 21 Jun 2018That screen brightness, battery life and weird side keys are simply pathetic for a 2018 flagsh... moreLG audio features is just for the jack. It does not works for usb nor wireless.
G7 has mono speaker ...
Please HTC, for 2019 ...

80% marks is above average, across all other reviews.
HTC U11's battery life was quite good for 3000 mAh size. It's a shame HTC has made worse battery life for this generation, let alone improving upon it....
That screen brightness, battery life and weird side keys are simply pathetic for a 2018 flagship phone costing $800. LG does better for audio. Samsung, Huawei and Google are on the same league for camera, and as for pretty much everything else the competitions are better than U12+. What a huge disappointment, HTC.
Anonymous, 21 Jun 2018As I feared...LCD + 3,500mAH battery = it ain't good enough. My love for HTC was gonna have me... moreXZ Premium with 5.5" 16:9 4K 807ppi + LCD + playing 4K videos had 72 hours. Battery is 3230mAh with last year cpu.
Mate 10 has 5.9" QHD LCD + 4000mAh = 82h
The problem is HTC software. U11+ with 3900h had poor numbers too. Even using less than 400 nits.
G7 will score near 75h.
Aweful battery life just aweful. WTF is HTC thinking of??
HTC Blew it. I'm an owner of the U11, and love the company. But they went the wrong way with the U11+ and U12+. Worse battery life, not enough screen improvements. Fragile glass back without wireless charging makes no sense...The Edge sense is a great feature, but you can't get it into the hands of people to get them to use it. Now the buttons on the side are another issue that should never have been.
I think they have strayed too far away from what was successful. It might be too difficult to go back. Go back to the metal back, re-add the 3.5 jack, keep small bezels with long screen and add the stereo speakers. Ride durability and sound to success, and be the only phone to offer everything. It is the only way you can offer a phone at the same price range as Samsung and be successful. Otherwise, cut this phone's price in half...
I was ready to buy this phone. I thought they would match the brightness of the U11 but they didn't. I was an HTC diehard customer for years, the Desire, HD7, One X and One M7. I doubt I will ever buy an HTC ever again. Sad.
