The HTC U11 is a tick the box phone.
Design: Excellent, their liquid surface technology really sets this device apart and one has the choice of a red, black or silver/bluish model.
Camera: This camera is one of the best found in a smartphone and while it lacks when it comes to wide images similar to the G6 it compensates for this with the quality of the images one can shoot.
Audio: One of the first smartphone makers to invest in High Res Audio the combination of noise cancelling technology sets this device apart from the pack.
Functionality: The HTC U 11 is fast and when combined with the smooth way that the Android 7.1 Nougat OS delivers functionality one can only be impressed with the performance that this device delivers.
Design: while I love the ‘Liquid Surface Design” fingerprints on the glossy surface are still a problem. There is a clear plastic case supplied, but this defies the beauty of the design.
Keyboard: while I liked the keyboard having to key down to numbers which only appear to the far left of the keyboard is an irritant.
Audio: Everything stacks up with the exception of a headphone jack especially if one forgets the HTC supplied headphones or the adapters.
