The middle range gives us more and better options every time. HTC has the U11 Life, a cheaper version of its flagship team, the U11.

Presentation of Edge Sense, the new feature that will accompany the new era of phone interactions.We are a pioneer company, and like you, we are always trying something, we always seek, we always learn.

The first HTC phone with Android One on board has landed hand in hand with an older brother, and also older brother of the HTC U11, center of the U at the moment. The HTC U11 Plus becomes the Taiwanese manufacturer’s maximum bet to close this year 2017, and we’ll see how it faces next season now that its innovation team is already inside Google. We can not forget that HTC is the manufacturer of the magnificent Google Pixel and it is rare that they did not use the techniques and features of such a good mobile phone in their new flagship. HTC U11 is a mobile with a large 5.5-inch screen and QHD resolution, a Qualcomm Snapdragn 835 processor, Adreno 540 GPU, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory that can be extended with microSD cards.

To surprise everyone, HTC does not walk around with nonsense, on the front they have put a 16 megapixel camera with a wide angle of 150 degrees. it does not mean that it is a better camera, but that it will take bigger photos and with a greater angle of vision. A high-end HTC “unrecognizable”
We do not stop to repeat that in the current market of high-end smartphones it is necessary to stand out. It can be done with the double camera, with the elimination of frames or as is the case of the HTC U11, with a design at least very striking. But above all breaker for the company, from the most sober to this model.
If you do not think so much, you have to look back and see the design of the HTC franchise of recent years. With the U11, HTC makes a sudden change of pace and idea behind the design of its high-end smartphones. Rumble to try a new assault to the usual.The only trace of the metal in the design of the HTC U11 is in the frame. Yes we have resistance to water, with IP67 profile. The transition from metal to glass has only one reason to be: to give color, liveliness and a finish with reflections and different shades depending on the ambient light. And he gets it. The HTC U11 is as eye-catching as few, and everyone will notice it. But for a lot of anti-fingerprint or dirt treatment that the brand incorporates, it’s a model that only remains clean and unmarked when you do not pick it up or use it. But it cleans with equal ease. When we think of HTC we have a classic design in its high range but this time they decided to move away from that model to go for glass.
The HTC U11 has a design that like at first sight with its construction, beautiful colors and metal at the edges. On the front we find the 5.5-inch screen, the front camera, notifications LED, the fingerprint reader and the capacitive buttons of menu. On the right side are the volume and lock buttons.On the back we find the main camera and the beautiful glass design that stands out from other previous versions of HTC.The only bad thing is that it is a fingerprint magnet, so you have to clean it to follow it. Another dismay is that you can strangle yourself if you are not careful.The equipment is somewhat heavier than other high-end, but nothing drastic. In addition, with the option of the Edge Sense, one gets used to “tighten” the equipment to activate applications like the camera. I’ll talk about this later.Screen.
