Future+. If we had to narrow down HTC to a single quality it would be innovative, and the HTC U12+ definitely fits that bill as well and is full to the brim with the latest technology. Let us find out whether or not it is as futuristic as it seems at first glance.
Update: additional information regarding the 3.5-mm headphone adapter added.
65% HTC U12+ review: A sharp-looking, pricey, revision of a familiar formula

The HTC U12+ includes all the cursory upgrades you’d expect and plays its strengths without too much fuss but struggles to live up to its price-tag.

80% HTC U12+ review: Flagship misses any must-have flourish
Source: Pocket Lint English
The HTC U12+ is a powerful phone with a good main camera and great display, but the zoom camera lets things down. Edge Sense means some inconvenient compromises and overall it just feels a little more chunky than it needs to be.

HTC has produced a decent phone with a few problems – mainly the twitchy side buttons, annoying preloaded apps and the lack of a 3.5mm headphone adapter. However, if you’re after a phone with a truly incredible camera or a lot of processing power, the U12+ offers an interesting alternative to its more expensive competitors. Coming in at around AUD$1200 from HTC’s own website, it’s slightly cheaper than flagships from other manufacturers, but still not the best value for money. HTC’s U12+ is a solid phone if you can look past its few, but serious shortcomings.

HTC has earned the description of “great phone” for the HTC U12+, but is it enough to get people to purchase it over the vast number of smartphones in that price bracket? It is a beautiful, stylish phone with some innovative hardware, fast and nearly-stock AOSP Android software.

HTC U12+ review: One too many pressing problems
Source: Good Gear Guide English
Even if the U12+’s buttons weren’t its death knell, a 2018 phone with an LCD screen and an overweight OS is a tough sell at $650, let alone $800. Even though its name suggests there should be a cheaper model with a smaller screen available, there isn’t. Nor will there be. The U12+ will likely be the only U.S. flagship from HTC until the U13 next year, assuming there even is an HTC flagship in 2019. Now that HTC’s smartphone division has been ravaged by Google, it could be only a matter of time before the company simply stops making flagships.

The HTC U12+ is definitely in high-end territory, but addresses a specific crowd because it has difficulties to compete on many fronts. While being a very good phone in general, it doesn’t have the best display, is not a feat of industrial design, nor has the best camera. It is therefore difficult, but not impossible,to compete in any combination of these niches.

HTC U12 Plus review: Squeezing can only get you so far (Updated with video!)
Source: Android Authority English
This is a good phone marred by a lackluster software experience, terrible buttons, below average battery life, and a price tag that’s too high. If you can get past those things, buy it. I don’t think you’ll regret it. For most people, I’d say it’s safe to pass on the U12 Plus.

Without a doubt, the U12+ has an excellent camera and nice-looking hardware design. Last year, we loved the HTC U11 for its great battery life, excellent camera, and attractive dual-glass design. Unfortunately, we can't say we're in love with the U12+ for these same reasons.

65% HTC U12+ review: Fundamentally flawed
Source: Engadget English
There's no doubt HTC's U12+ does several things well. The big screen, BoomSound speakers and USonic earbuds make it very media and gaming friendly. The camera is excellent, and it's got the latest-and-greatest mobile chip, so performance is impeccable. However, it may be a little on the bulky side for some, and the Edge Sense features are hardly game changing. There are so many smartphones in the same league as the U12+ currently, including a new home run by OnePlus, it doesn't stand out from the crowd in any meaningful way.

60% HTC Desire 12+ Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
HTC's Desire 12+ is the latest smartphone offering from the company in the mid-range segment, but we feel that its asking price is too high for what it offers. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 SoC is available in significantly cheaper phones such as the Xiaomi Redmi 5 and Oppo A71 (2018). The HD+ display is disappointing. If you are in the market for a smartphone with a budget of around Rs 20,000, you might want to choose between the Redmi Note 5 Pro (Review), the Moto X4 (Review), and the Oppo F7 (Review) instead.

HTC U12+ – The Ausdroid review
Source: Ausdroid English
The HTC U12+ is a phone that can take amazing pictures consistently, has fast, attractive software, innovative hardware and to top it off, looks great. Unfortunately I have to put a “HOLD” on recommending purchasing this phone — until HTC manage to fix the Edge Sense 2.0 and the pressure sensitive buttons issues I cannot recommend it. Hold out to see if HTC can bring the fixes required to make it great. If they can fix the touch issues then there is no doubt in my mind I could easily recommend this phone to anyone.

HTC U12+ Review: Nope.
Source: Droid Life English
I came into 2018 excited for HTC, but the U12+ just killed it all for me. As good as the camera and specs might be, and as much as I like looking at and holding this phone, it’s just not that fun to use. HTC screwed up buttons, which is something I’m not sure I expected to say…ever. Their Edge Sense technology is mostly a mess, battery life on this phone is not good at all, and I’m really worried that HTC has given up on updating their phones regularly. Couple all of that with the fact that its an $800 investment and you should probably pass on this one.

It’s a shame then that HTC falls down when it comes to execution. The haptic buttons, for example, are really a pain to use and Edge Sense doesn’t work as you’d expect 100% of the time.Add to this the disappointing battery life, a version of Android that lacks the polish of the competition, and no wireless charging.

The U12+ reaches for a high bar with excellent cameras, powerful performance and beautiful design, but falls short where it matters for many potential buyers with frustrating buttons, underwhelming battery life and a duller-than-average display.

Source: The Verge English
The questions about HTC’s future as a phone maker will persist, but they would have been much more vexing had the company produced a compelling phone with the U12 Plus. Instead, HTC has given us plenty of its signature design, spec, and camera strengths, encumbered with a heavy dose of software bloat and one inexcusably bad design decision. I’ve long been a fan of HTC’s work, but it feels like the time has come for us to recognize that the company’s bleak future as a phone maker is of its own making.

74% HTC U12 Plus review: Sometimes innovation goes awry
Source: Zdnet.com English
I've been using devices created by HTC since 2001 so I'm a fan. That said, I did not keep the HTC U11 around and don't buy devices just to sit on shelves. Although the company has been struggling financially and releasing fewer devices, this review is judging the HTC U12 Plus and not the company. The U12 Plus is a fantastic piece of hardware and if the unique features I listed above are important to you then go try one out. If the list of bothersome things irks you too much, then move along and look at something from Samsung, LG, Moto, Huawei, or others.

At the moment, HTC has yet to unveil the price of the phone in Malaysia but expect it to carry a premium price tag since U12+ is priced at USD 799 (about RM 3,184) for the 64GB model and USD 849 (about RM 3,383) for the higher-end 128GB model. More details regarding the phone should be out very soon though since U12+ is scheduled for release in Malaysia by the end of June 2018.

In as few words as possible, we kinda like it, the HTC U12+. It's by no means radically different from the U11+, but we've learned not to expect major changes, and no notch is always a welcome lack of change. With dual cameras front and back, the new model is no longer underequipped to fight the competition in the faux bokeh area, and the edge squeeze features can actually be useful, sometimes, maybe.

HTC has struggled in recent years, there's no avoiding that. The company may now be a victim of its own success, but even so it continues to innovate. It innovates in design, with subtle touches like the delicacy of the glass colouration or changing of these side buttons, which it rarely gets credit for.

My recommendation: It’s a good flagship glass slab worthy of consideration if you don’t want a 3.5” audio jack (HTC says you want better sound from the USB-C port and supplied dongle) or wireless charging. Its Edge Sense may tip the scales in its favour.

The New HTC U12+ Smartphone Hands On
Source: AnandTech English
After the latest deal with Google on personnel, the next flagship out from HTC is the U12+, succeeding the squeeze-focused U11 and U11+ from 2017. For this generation HTC will only launch a single model called the U12+, rather than a U12 now and another one later, with the company citing that it felt too many of its enthusiast users would wait for the plus model, so instead they have decided to just go with a singular unit with the upgraded name. The headlines on the U12+ include a quad camera design, an upgraded Edge Sense detection system, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, an IP68 ingress rating, and an upgraded BoomSound experience. We had the chance to get a hands-on with the device at a briefing last week.

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.
