HTC U11 - A Unique Handset with Impressive Audio Performance
In today’s sea of remarkable phones, the HTC U11 manages to stand out. It has a hugely impressive spec list, unique design, innovation in the form of squeezable sides, and a great camera. On top of that, it received remarkable upgrades such as the Amazon Alexa that serves as the phone’s voice assistant like Siri and Bixby. Here’s a rundown of its specifications and features.
Well-Built and Sleek Exterior
The design of the HTC U11 is something that takes a little getting used to – but it's worth taking the time to do so. Holding it feels nice in the hand, as the polished Gorilla Glass is so sleek and elegant. The U11 offers an aesthetic appeal in a way that is rarely seen with many phones. This is because it sports a Liquid Surface design that manages to offer two colors at once. Apart from its stunning exterior, the HTC U11's chassis is well built and solid.
The U11's vibrant, large, and clear screen with QHD (1440 x 2560) resolution offers enough clarity that anyone could want while still preserving enough battery life. The screen also comes with an auto-brightness feature that dynamically alters well day and night.
The HTC U11 made headlines due to its Edge Sense design, allowing users to squeeze the handset. This cutting-edge design is not just a regular embellishment but it also has convenient uses like shifting the camera to selfie mode by long-holding the sides. Plus, the sides feel very intuitive and cleverly designed.
Impressive Camera Performance
Although the U11 only comes with a 12 MP single lens rear camera, it offers a remarkable Pro Camera technology that lets you have full control over settings like white balance and exposure. You can even choose to shoot in JPG or RAW format and enhance it to improve the color and contrast. Meanwhile, its 16-MP front sensor (of aperture 2.0) offers bright and vibrant photos, regardless of the lighting. It excels at providing sharp photos in low light environments, making the U11 one of the best selfie phones to date.
Excellent Audio Performance
Apart from its powerful Snapdragon 835 CPU, another main selling point of the U11 is its audio performance. It offers strong audio quality and crisp sounds, which are rare in flagship phones these days. If you are an audiophile, the HTC U11 is the ideal handset you can get your hands on.
