The HTC U11 is here and although it's been official for a little while now the phone wasn't technically available for purchase. That changed this week as the unlocked model can now be found on Amazon as well as HTC's own website, and at Sprint stores for those who want to pick up the device through their carrier as opposed to another retail method. Say, online. Now that the phone is out though, are you planning on buying one or have you settled on another flagship? Perhaps you're waiting on the OnePlus 5 which is due to be unveiled on June 20th. If you're considering the HTC U11, here is a refresh on what the device offers.
For starters, the HTC U11 has the highly anticipated HTC Edge Sense technology built-in, allowing users of the device to squeeze the sides of their phone where the sensors are located so that they can either launch apps, functions, or shortcuts to a specific feature location. It certainly makes using the device a lot easier, but it's not the only thing to love about the new device from HTC.
The U11 also has a pretty decent looking design going for it. That mirror finish on the back follows the same design pattern as the others in the HTC U lineup, though it does have some slightly slimmer bezels than the HTC U Ultra, which is sure to please a lot of consumers who prefer to have slimmer bezels on their devices. There's also the audio aspect of the device as HTC has given the phone four mics that are capable of recording 3D audio when recording a video, this way you pick up all of the best sound for your footage so when you play it back for yourself or for others, the sound quality of the video is the best it possibly could be when coming from a mobile device. At least that's the idea that HTC has gone for here, whether or not it actually has the best audio recording for when recording videos is another story. The HTC U11 definitely has a lot of great features, of course it also doesn't hurt that it has top of the line specs either. Are you planning on buying the HTC U11?
