A flagship that will make you embrace it

HTC U11

from LaptopMedia
HTC has changed its concept for a flagship model and has replaced the metal construction with one that features a glass back and metal frame. The device still expresses elegance and style but more in the way Galaxy S8 does it, which also has a glass back. A small drawback is that the body is prone to fingerprints. The device is also IP67 certified which means it is dust- and waterproof. Despite the changes in the design, the fingerprint sensor is still positioned right below the screen... Full review

More than a squeezable phone

HTC U11

from Mobile Syrup
I believe the HTC U11 might be a contender for the best smartphone of 2017. It has great specs, one of the highest rated cameras and its never-before-seen squeeze function is actually pretty useful and has a lot of potential. Don't get me wrong, the device does have its flaws: it's too slippery, it's a fingerprint magnet, HTC Sense Companion and HTC Alexa are more frustrating than helpful and the Usonic headphones are extremely difficult to put in -- but the device is still one of the best offerings HTC has had in a while...

Outstanding camera, top-end performance

HTC U11

from TechSpot
Many companies have stumbled with their 2017 flagship smartphone releases. But HTC has somehow managed to buck this trend and produce a phone that’s not only better than last year’s model, but a genuinely decent phone that stands up to this year’s competition... Full review

More than just gimmicks

HTC U11

from Engadget
HTC didn't get everything right with the U11, but it nailed a whole lot more than I ever expected it to. That's a big deal. After the mess that was the U Ultra, I was honestly unsure whether the company would ever drag itself out of its doldrums. The U11 is proof that, yes, there is still hope for this company. While gimmicks like Edge Sense and the stylishly fragile glass back make the U11 seem too eager to be different, underneath all that is a very good, very fast phone that's worthy of your attention...

Full steam ahead

HTC U11

from Notebookcheck
Despite the fact that HTC didn't modify the design too much, the U11 looks distinctly different than the HTC 10 and other competitors thanks to different materials and the extraordinary color choices. From a technical standpoint, the smartphone is at very high level, as it comes equipped with an up-to-date high-end processor and a class- appropriate amount of storage. The MSRP price increase of 50 Euro (~$58) is pretty steep, but follows the yearly trend... Full review

Another fantastic device from HTC which will hopefully get a bit more attention this time

HTC U11

from Coolsmartphone
All in all, this is HTC in fine form, with a stunning design and wonderful finish. However, they do need to keep pushing in order to get back in the game. The “new features” – like this squeezy “Edge Sense” functionality – might be “nice”, but whether they’ll be used and appreciated on a daily basis is another thing. I forgot it was there and wanted to turn it off at times... Full review

Just don't squeeze it too hard

HTC U11

from Softpedia
The HTC U11 is at the end of the day a smartphone that combines innovative technologies with setbacks that you wouldn’t normally expect from a flagship. HTC is back in the game with the U11, but when comparing its high-end model with rival phones from Samsung and Apple, it loses the battle mostly because of odd choices that should have been completely different if the company didn’t necessarily build the device with an eye on the price tag all the time...

A sensible, everyday flagship with a great camera

HTC U11

from tech2
In a market flooded with phones, where flagships are few and far between and where gimmicks are perceived as the way forward, HTC has come up with a phone that is quiet, sensible, and gets the basics (except the vibration motor) right. This is a sensible smartphone in a sensible package. This is a flagship I can live with every day. If my foot wasn’t already planted firmly in Apple’s camp, I think I might even have considered getting myself one of these... Full review

A squeezable delight

HTC U11

from Techgoondu
The most glaring issue with the U11 is its lack of a headphone jack. If you desperately need a headphone jack and a dongle will not do, then the U11 will not be what you are looking for. If you don’t mind using the included USonic earphones, or you have a dedicated music player, then the U11 will be a very compelling device for you. It also offers a top-of-the-line camera experience, great software, a unique feature in Edge Sense, and the best speakers and in-box earphones available right now...

A serious contender

HTC U11

from NDTV
The U11 is a top-notch smartphone. It doesn't have dual cameras or other tricks, and it doesn't have the taller screens that its main competitors are now offering, but it's gorgeous and powerful, with a camera that can deliver miracles in low light. Edge Sense quickly becomes second nature, and the Snapdragon 835 has plenty of headroom for demanding apps over the next few years. The chief disappointments are the non-starter Sense Companion UI and pedestrian battery life... Full review

Best phone I've had

HTC Desire 601

Of the eight (8) phones that I have had over the course of ten years, I have never had one better. I had it for a few months shy of a full two year term.

Of the eight (8) phones that I have had over the course of ten years, I have never had one better. I had it for a few months shy of a full two year term. For me, this phone was as fast as the major brand phones (S series, iPhone,etc.) But at a fraction of the cost. The best thing about it was the dual front speakers, I could have it on one level of volume and it was so clear and loud. The speed of the phone was incredible, and it rarely crashed, glitched, froze, or otherwise underperformed for me. Then I made the stupid mistake of "upgrading" to a Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime for school. It was NOT worth it, this HTC is better tenfold than that stupid Galaxy phone. Only had that Galaxy phone for 2 months and I want my old HTC back. The message of this story, NAME BRAND IS NOT ALWAYS BETTER!! Less

Bad, Stupid, not Accepted at all!

The HTC Desire 516 Dual sim is one of the worst Smartphones! Based on my experience, and after using the phone for 8 month, i can't recommend anyone to buy this phone. First, there's the Apps transfer issue: You cannot move or transfer any of your apps from the internal memory to the SD Card. Now if the phone is supported with 8,16,32 GB of internal memory, i could accept such option, but with 2 GB internal memory! That's totally stupid. If you have installed just the most famous applications that everyone use (Whatsapp, Facebook, Viber, File Explorer, and other built-in and Google apps) you will not be able to install any other specialized app you probably need. What can i give as a mark to this stupid option? 1/10. Second, why the company insists that the internal memory is 4 GB, and the users cannot access more than 2 GB? I am surprised for such dumb situation, and it makes HTC look so Stupid! As i understand from several reviews, many of the Desire 516 Dual Sim faced this problem, with no clear answer of it: Is there anyway to access the full 4 GB? Or it's a lie that the phone has a 4 GB memory? So, as a result, the memory will earn 3/10. Third, the Camera performance. It's accepted in Good lightning conditions, not Very good, and certainly NOT PERFECT. it's just OK. On the other hand, and on bad lightning conditions (such as in the night) the camera performance is so bad, and that because of the low brightness produced by the LED Flash. Bad camera, it will not earn more that 3/10. Fourth, i can say that the overall performance of the phone is "OK". i don't have any problem of slow performance. It's not so fast, but it's not slow. It's "OK". What i mean by "Overall Performance" is how quick the phone is opening and closing certain application, how much time does it take to accomplish a task with certain application...etc. However, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 Processor, i couldn't expect more. My mark here will be 6/10. Fifth, the touchscreen. Also "OK", not "Bad" and not "Perfect". It's stable, and haven't any problem with multitouch tasks. The touchscreen deserves 6/10. Maybe there's one good thing about the phone, and it's the design. The design is simple, you get all your necessary things where you expect them (Power button, volume buttons...) and it express the HTC design line. As a result, i will give this phone 4/10 as a total mark. I wouldn't recommend this phone to any one. This is not a Good Mid-Range phone, this a Bad phone whatever the category of classification is.

HTC Hate This Cell-phone

HTC’s cell phone focus is generally the high end devices with the very latest technology, although as a manufacturer for other companies they made a whole range of phones.

During 2007 and 2008 HTC became one of the most talked about cell phone manufacturers and continues to create excitement based on their novel smartphones and, more recently, touch screen interfaces.
