3. SQUEEZE TO TALK
The HTC U11 ($998) is equipped with all the expected bells and whistles: It’s water resistant, has two AI assistants (HTC Sense Companion and Google Assistant), 3-D audio recording, and a 16MP front camera with super fast autofocus. Plus, its unique HTC Edge Sense function enables immediate interaction with just a squeeze (use a short squeeze, or a squeeze and hold action) that can be customised to fire up Facebook or Spotify. It even works in rainy conditions or if you’ve got gloves on. Available in Amazing Silver, Sapphire Blue and Brilliant Black, with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
