Reviews for the HTC U11 Plus

89% HTC U11 Plus Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
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 learn here how well the new smartphone does in our review.
70% HTC U11 Plus smartphone review: When bigger isn’t necessarily better

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.

And that’s the story with the HTC U11+ as a whole: it’s good but not amazing, and there are phones at least as good that cost less. The superior Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is now available for around £580, while the Huawei Mate 10 Pro is slimmer, looks nicer, has a superior screen and beats it for battery life. NATHAN SPENDELOW.

If you are looking for a flagship smartphone, you now have one more option to choose from. The HTC U11+ has a big 18:9 display, powerful HTC BoomSound speakers, and impressive cameras. HTC’s Edge sense feature isn’t gimmicky and the Snapdragon 835 SoC coupled with 6GB of RAM can run pretty much everything out there. The company also includes its USonic active noise cancellation headphones in the box.

65% HTC U11 Plus Review: When More Is Less
Source: The Verge English
Everything was set up for me to love the U11 Plus that little bit more than I did the U11. But what HTC has demonstrated with this phone is that sometimes — perhaps more often than not in the mobile industry — giving people more isn’t necessarily going to make them happier. It’s the same issue that Samsung and LG long suffered from, this desire to maximize specs and numbers at any cost. The U11 Plus might find its audience in dedicated spec or camera geeks, but for me it’s too unrefined, too bloated (both physically and in its software) and, as a result, too expensive to recommend.

89% HTC U11 Plus review: what the Pixel 2 XL could’ve been
Source: Android Authority English
The HTC U11 Plus began life as the Pixel 2 XL. To its credit, HTC still put it out after Google tapped LG and the U11 Plus has become the best phone HTC has ever made. The only problem is, it won't be coming to North America.

In a way, the specs and capabilities of the HTC U11+ more closely match what the original U11 should have been. The elongated display falls in line with the trends of 2017, the capacious battery sticks it to phablet-sized rivals like the S8+, Note 8 and Mate 10 Pro, and the cameras and media abilities of the phone are generally top-notch.

The U11+ will be too big and heavy for some but it's a decent effort from HTC. It's cheaper than rivals and has some top-notch specs including 128GB storage as standard. It also has decent cameras, IP68 waterproofing and an 18:9 screen. It's just a shame there's no headphone jack, Edge Sense remains something of a gimmick, and we don't get the alluring translucent model in the UK.

80% HTC U11+ review: Big, bold, but a bit late to the game
Source: Pocket Lint English
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 arrive to distract hardcore fans. That aside, a great build, excellent audio and a (mostly) solid camera experience deliver a rewarding experience from HTC.

The U11+ is a fantastic upgrade, bringing that formula up to date with an 18:9 screen, while keeping the same lightning-fast performance and superb superb camera that only narrowly falls short of Google’s algorithmic Pixel 2.

87% HTC U11+ review: 6-inch screen, large battery, good waterproofing
Source: Zdnet.com English
At £699 (inc. VAT) the HTC U11+ is no 'affordable' smartphone, but nor is it in the very top iPhone X/Galaxy Note 8 price bracket. Compared to the U11 (£599 for 128GB, £519 for 64GB), you get a range of updated features including an 18:9 screen, a much bigger battery and improved water resistance. The downgrading of the front camera from 16 to 8 megapixels shouldn't worry anyone.

80% HTC U11+ review: a powerful and stylish flagship that you're (probably) not going to buy
Source: T3 English
How odd that a phone that reportedly began its life as the Pixel 2 XL, and one that then needed to be quickly re-engineered into this U11 upgrade when Google had its head turned by LG, could turn out so well. It is powerful, stylish and - with its neat Edge Sense tech - innovative, too. If only it had been released 6 months ago...

Offering brilliant screen quality, decent performance and an above-average camera, the U11+ is an excellent handset – and one of the best available right now. It’s also a good £100 cheaper than its closest rival, the Google Pixel 2 XL. But with 2018’s next wave of flagships set to arrive in a matter of months, it feels a little late to market.

HTC U11+ isn't shaping as the best flagship of the season, that's for sure. While our tests paint a powerful and skillful flagship, the public may not be as interested in numbers. The poor looking LCD and the average battery life are a tough bite to swallow.

The U11+ is the phone HTC should have released in place of the U11. Unveiling it now just seems like the company admitting it got the design wrong before.

If it's not too big and heavy for your taste, the HTC U11+ seems like a pretty great smartphone. It's cheaper than rivals and has some top-notch specs including 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage as standard. We like the one-handed feature, too, it's just a shame we're not getting the unusual translucent model here.

HTC U11+ hands-on review
Source: Stuff TV English
The HTC U11 was a phone that went out on a limb, doing its own Liquid Glass thing while most other manufacturers chased the dream of an edge-to-edge display. Nothing the HTC U11+ does really changes this state of play, but its bumper screen and battery do smooth out those rough edges a little further. And of course, you’re still getting some wicked fast internals and one of the best smartphone cameras money can buy here.

HTC U11+ initial review: Bigger, bolder, better
Source: Pocket Lint English
The HTC U11+ looks like a great addition to the range of 18:9 phones we've already got on the market. It might not sway you from the Samsung Galaxy S8+ which we think has a slicker design with those curved edges. However, with the Pixel 2 XL suffering with displaygate there might be plenty looking at the alternatives.

Qualcomm Adreno 540: Integrated graphics card in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC. Slighly optimized architecture compared to the Adreno 530 but with higher clock speed due to the new 10 nm process. In the beginning of 2017 one of the fastest graphics cards for Android based smartphones. Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
835: High-End SoC for smartphones that was introduced in early 2017 and manufactured in 10 nm LPE FinFET at Samsung. Integrates 4x Kryo 280 at 2.45 GHz (max) for performance and 4x Kryo 280 at 1.9 GHz (max) for efficiency. Furthermore offers an X16 LTE modem, ac-WiFi and a dual-channel 32-Bit 1866 MHz LPDDR4x memory controller. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


HTC:

High Tech Computer Corporation (HTC) is a Taiwanese manufacturer of mobile phones and other electronic products. In 2012, HTC stopped producing tablets under their own name. In 2012-2013, they faced heavy sales declines. Since then, the company is medium-sized in the smartphone sector. There are numerous reviews on HTC Smartphones (as of 2016).


83.97%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
