HTC U11 Unboxing & Hands On Review

By | All, Phones | No Comments

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.

Moto Z2 Play Unboxing: The Gold Standard For Battery & Innovation

By | All, Phones | No Comments

The Moto Z2 Play’s modular system is awesome – you can attach batteries, wireless charging covers – even a camera with 10x optical zoom. It’s a midranger and doesn’t perform as great as the HTC U11 and Samsung Galaxy S8, but get this – the Moto Z2 Play’s battery life is SICK. The best we’ve seen. Lasts one and a half days or so with 8-10 hours of screen-on time. I left this with the battery mod on and got it to run Netflix with sound for 24 hours. S$799 for the phone, expect to spend about S$100 to S$200 for each mod. Not cheap, but definitely innovative and unique. Stay tuned for our in-depth review!

HTC U11 Silver

Yep, you read it right. The HTC U11 is the world’s first squeezable phone. Squeeze for selfies, squeeze for Facebook, squeeze for music – just like squeezing a sponge. Although the U11 sounds like a odd gimmicky device at first glance, it is far from a one trick pony – this phone is HTC’s newest flagship phone and it packs a huge amount of power behind its shiny glass body. We were able to squeeze the the U11 to our heart’s content at HTC’s launch, and we think that it is quite a strong competitor to flagships such as the Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6.
