Con­clu­sion

SmartHouse - - FIRST LOOK | HTC -

The HTC U11 is a tick the box phone.

FOR

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.

AGAINST

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.
