  • Impressive display

    The 5.5-inch WQHD display offers pin-sharp resolution, and promises to make everything you do look awesome.

  • Squeezy sides

    The U11’s party trick is a function called Edge Sense™, which lets you do stuff, like snapping selfies, with just a squeeze.

  • Return of the UltraPixel

    The main camera is 12MP and uses large pixels to let in loads of light for bright photos.

  • Super selfies

    At 16MP, the front-facing camera outweighs the rear one, able to deliver picture-perfect selfies every time.

Design and display

Beautiful build

The HTC U11 features a seamless, symmetrical design, built around a strong metal frame. The 5.5-inch Quad HD display is made of 3D glass, flowing seamlessly into the rest of the phone with subtle curves. And it’s protected against both water and dust – certified as IP67. 

Edge Sense™ by HTC

Edge Sense is HTC’s intuitive new technology, letting you perform tasks on the smartphone by squeezing its sides. The commands can be completely customised, but a few of the highlights include taking selfies, launching Google Assistant, or flicking the torch on and off.

HTC USonic™

Enjoy your favourite albums like never before with HTC’s audio technology. USonic combines noise-cancelation with a system that lets you personalise the way you listen, creating a completely unique audio experience. 


Your best side, every time

On the front of the smartphone, above the display, you’ll find a powerful 16MP front-facing lens - built specifically for high quality selfies. The smart camera is packed with special features to get your best angle, like live makeup overlays, auto selfies (able to detect when you’re smiling), and it can record video in 1080p. 

UltraPixel quality

HTC smartphones have always delivered high quality snaps, and the U11 - of course - is no different. The 12MP UltraPixel camera sucks in loads of light with its 1.4um pixels and wide f/1.7 aperture, making for bright, colourful photos every time. 

Under the hood

No shortage of power

The U11 is packing loads of power, with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and 4GB RAM. The smartphone will have no problem running large games, or streaming high quality films, and if you’re looking for space, there’s room to expand the 64GB storage by 2TB with a microSD card. 

Assistance is on hand

There’s no shortage of virtual help available on the U11. With Google Assistant as standard, as well as HTC’s very own Sense Companion, you’ll never have to type out a web search again. And if you need reminding of pretty much anything – just ask.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't resist - saw Solar Red, 128Gb dubai SIM As I said in another review about my HTC U11 in Amazing Silver it is an incredible device. The Android Oreo (v8) is imminent and is going to take the U11 into another level. Being a high quality LCD display, you have no fear regarding the 'burn-in' problems being encountered by devices using the AMOLED & OLD devices (Samsung, iPhone X, Pixel 2XL and LG). I have just bought another HTC U11, this time in Solar Red, 128/6Gb and dual SIM. Because of poor reception from the carriers in Suffolk, I've taken the plunge - still got my 64/4Gb Silver U11 which will be going to a family member. As can be seen from my screen capture, I'm currently in Singapore but the picture shows the daily SIM's active in the top menu bar. Out of interest, I have had a chance to play with the U11 Plus here and it is also a lovely device. From a personal point of view the bezels on the U11 is not really noticeable and is purely there for posers because it is 'fashionable' and having a rear mounted fingerprint reader is not as convenient as having it front facing. The love affair with the U11 continues.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average at best So. For the money do not buy. It's ok but that's it. But it is, on the rear, the most beautiful phone in the world.
