HTC U11, U for something else….
What is the U stand for? Ultra, Ultimate, Unique or Unspotted? Let’s find out.
HTC is no longer as popular as before. The last popular phone they made was the HTC ONE M8. I am still using it as a secondary device.
The U11 was launched in May 2017. This phone is also known as the “squeeze” phone. Yes, you can squeeze this phone (like squeezing an orange for juice) for turning the volume up/down or launching certain apps. This feature is unique but not quite iconic.
The price is on the higher size, with a huge price tag of ₹51,999 which is can be bought for the best price of ₹46,999.
Now let’s come to the specs. This phone has 5.5-inch qHD display with a resolution of 1440*2560 protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. It is equipped with a Snapdragon 835 CPU, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage which can be expanded upto 2TB via a dedicated micro-SD slot. The rear camera is a 12 MP (ultra-pixel) with f/1.7 aperture and LED flash and the front camera a 16 MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture. Both cameras come with Optical Image Stabilization. The 3000 mAh battery is non-removable battery and supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0. The device is also water and dust resistant. The device supports dual-SIM and both SIM slots support 4G with VoLTE. The fingerprint scanner is mounted on the front side. All major sensors like accelerometer, gyro, compass and proximity are present. Finally, the other notable mentions are the USB type-C port, and HTC Boom Sound.
At this price you get a phone with a good low light camera and premium build quality. You can get this phone for yourself if you don’t mind the relatively low battery capacity and high price.
If you want to buy a new phone this Christmas, then you can check out of two of the best phones: OnePlus 5T and Honor 7X etc.
