HTC U11+ review

 

HTC U11+ (Plus) review: Is it worth the upgrade?

Great screen ; Good camera ; Large battery ; Runs latest Android version

Uses last year's parts ; Only a minor upgrade on the regular U11

Battery life is the second area in which the U11+ seriously improves on the U11. HTC’s upped the U11+’s battery capacity to 3930mAh, which is a marked improvement on the original’s 3000mAh cell.

HTC U11+ review

 

HTC U11+ could have been the next big Pixel, but it just wasn't meant to be. Instead, it became the next squeezable HTC flagship fully equipped to compete with Google's XL sequel. Underdog or not, the HTC U11+ has the dog tags of a fighter.

HTC U11 Plus review: when more is less

 

We review the HTC U11 Plus, the phone that was once intended to become the Google Pixel 2 XL

Only camera that can rival the Pixel ; HTC’s smallest bezels in years ; Big battery ; Smooth performance ; Good speakers

Inelegant, chunky design ; Slippery to grip ; Display lacks color accuracy ; Battery doesn’t last that much longer in actual use ; Ugly and intrusive bloatware

Be careful what you wish for

HTC U11+ review: a powerful and stylish flagship that you're (probably) not going to buy

 

Powerful, stylish and innovative, but released a little too late to matter, the HTC U11+ plays all the right notes at the wrong time

Absolutely stunning glass body ; Excellent camera ; Powerful hardware ; Innovative Sense UI ; Capacious 18:9, 6-inch screen ; Lighting-fast fingerprint scanner

Average battery life ; Screen isn't as bright as competitors ; Only available from HTC

HTC's squeezy flagship gets some fresh tweaks

 

The HTC U11 Plus is a touch bigger than its predecessor, but it still keeps the quirky squeezy navigation thing.

HTC U11+ review: Big, bold, but a bit late to the game

 

The HTC U11+ is a complete package, but it launches at a time that sees it more expensive than comparable hardware rivals, while new models will

Nice design - especially if you can get the translucent model ; Plenty of power ; Great display (with a caveat) ; Good camera ; Waterproofed design ; Solid battery life

HTC software additions don't add much ; Display has ghosting issues in night mode ; Low brightness levels can cause flicker ; Some will see the hardware as dated at launch

The HTC U11+ is very much an interim step up over the HTC U11, changing that display aspect ratio for more contemporary appeal. We like the design - especially the transparent rear and visible coil within - which is something of a ballsy move from HTC.

HTC U11+ review

 

The squeezy phone is back with a bigger screen and bumper battery

Excellent camera ; Already gorgeous design updated with 18:9 screen ; Great performance & battery life

Screen could be brighter ; No headphone port ; Not sold through UK networks, high SIM-free price

Probably the best phone HTC has made in years, but it’s arriving just a little too late

HTC U11 Plus review

 

HTC gives its U11 phone the ultra-widescreen treatment

Great photo quality ; Decent speakers ; Smart, high-quality build

No headphone jack ; Camera shutter lag ; No depth of field effect

The HTC U11 Plus doesn't offer that much more than some phones released almost a year earlier. However, solid battery life, a slim screen surround and a great - if slightly slow - camera see it through.

HTC U11 Plus smartphone review: When bigger isn’t necessarily better

 

If last year's U11 lacked presence, this year's U11 Plus is worse. It's a good phone, but it's pricing places means that it's competing with the Galaxy S9

If last year’s U11 lacked presence, this year’s U11 Plus makes things worse. It’s a good phone, but it’s pricing places it in direct competition with, at the very least, the stunning Samsung Galaxy S9.

HTC U11 Plus Smartphone Review

 

Trending. The HTC U11 Plus emerges about a year after the U11 and offers very similar specs. It comes with more storage space, and the new Super LCD display now has a trendy 2:1 aspect ratio. Moreover, the battery also gets a significant bump. You can...

fast SoC ; great camera ; accurate geolocation ; expandable storage ; dual SIM ; fast USB that can be used to connect an external display ; great headphones in the box ; good speakers ; water- and dust-proof

display is too dim ; camera app doesn't offer many options ; average Micro SD speeds ; only LTE category 15

With the U11 Plus, HTC stays true to its design. Nevertheless, it gives the new flagship device a smaller color palette than the U11. HTC does a lot right with its latest flagship and again relies on the tried and true staples that we already saw in...
