“Out of the box” on the new smartphone installed Android 7.1 Nougat, which is updated to version 8.0 Oreo. And besides, it is important to note immediately that the model HTC U11 supports two SIM cards (view all smartphones with 2 sim cards in the catalog).

Screen, body and battery

Moderately large 5.5-inch screen, made by technology Super LCD5, installed in the smartphone HTC U11.

The larger the screen, the larger the case. But in addition to the width and height of the hull, its thickness is important. At HTC U11 the thickness of the case is 7.9 mm, which turns out to be thick enough, maybe you will not be comfortable holding such a device in your hand.

The battery and the operating time also depend on the screen size. At HTC U11 installed battery for 3 000 mAh, and this is not enough, but not yet a lot.

Of the features of the case and form factor, it is worth noting protection against ingress of water and dust inside the body.

Main camera and selfie camera

Smartphone HTC U11 got ordinary main camera on 12 MP and the frontcamera on 16 MP. If you judge only by the number of megapixels, then the main camera is very weak. But the frontcamera very good, which will surprise you with its high quality shooting of selfie.

Processor and Internal Memory

The speed of the smartphone affects not only the optimized software (the newer Android, the better), but also the characteristics of the hardware: the processor and the amount of RAM. HTC U11 has 8-core Snapdragon 835. You can select the RAM 4 GB or version 6 GB.

Available versions HTC U11 with different amount of built-in memory: 64/128 GB. Note that the more memory, the more expensive the smartphone. And if there was not enough internal memory, then you can save the necessary data on the memory card microSD up to 256 GB.

Price for HTC U11: buy or not to buy?

The smartphone HTC U11 got into our price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500” and began to be sold in June 2017 at a price of $700. Evaluation of the characteristics, probably, you have already folded, and if not, here is our result. HTC U11 is a very smart smartphone with a large screen and a conventional main camera, and the front camera at it turned out simply smart. And to all this we add that the battery here is absolutely normal.

Is it worth buying now this model of the smartphone, we are talking about our status “Droid-or-Junk”. Of course, at the beginning of sales, almost every smartphone becomes a Droid, and we advise buying such models. But over time, the situation is changing, no one updates the Android version in the smartphone, and in six months or a year this smartphone can already become a Junk. In this case, we advise you to go to the DROID smartphones page in our catalog, where we always show the most current models on sale for today. There are variants from different price segments, so you will have plenty to choose from.
