Although the HTC has produced mediocre phones over the past few years, they’ve knocked it out of the park with their flagship U11. This rivals the iPhone 8 – if you’re torn between Apple and Android, just get this. It’s got top of the line specs, a beautiful body, fantastic audio, great camera and a very nice form factor.
The programmable ‘edge sense’ squeeze function is extremely useful and better implemented than Samsung’s Bixby-only button. I hate that there’s no headphone jack and the body’s a super fingerprint magnet – battery life is so-so too. Still, i’d say that the HTC U11 performs better than 95% of the Android phones out there. It isn’t revolutionary like the S8, but it’s a wonderful incremental step. HTC sticks to a tried and true form factor and what works.
