Is the HTC U11 Worth It?


HTC, the underdog over the past half decade on Android smartphones, is attempting another comeback. Its new HTC U11 seems to stand shoulder to shoulder to the already unconquerable Galaxy S8. The S8 by the way is rated the current smartphone of choice by TrustedReview. In its attempt to outrun the Galaxy S8, HTC has loaded the U11 with multiple overwhelming features.


HTC, known for its unibody metal designs on its phones, has turned to a new combination of metal and glass this time for the U11. It calls it the “liquid surface” design. However, this new liquid surface brings with it what some may consider a drawback. The glass on the U11’s back is bolted on the already finished metal body – which makes it rather slippery, and a little too shiny for some people. Let us look into the key features of this outlandish phone.

All in all, the HTC’s new flagship U11 with a great audio experience thanks to its 24 bit DAC. Expected to officially launch in India soon, it is a device you may well consider worthy of having.
