Description

This is a phone meant to be squeezed... literally. One of the HTC U11's stand-out features is that it can detect when it is being squeezed, and the action can trigger an array of functions - launching the flashlight or taking a photo, for instance. That aside, the HTC U11 follows in the footsteps of previous HTC U phones, sporting a glass back with eye-catching, highly reflective iridescent paintjob. Specs are top-notch, as the case with any high-end Android smartphone should be. And if you're willing to pay the hefty $650 to own one, you'll get a pair of nifty noise-cancellation earphones in the box.

Do you ...?

  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

Works best in clear weather. A-GPS - A-GPS stands for Assisted GPS and is the industry standard for positioning and navigation. “Assisted” means that it can use local wireless networks, in addition to satellites, for quicker and more precise localization. GLONASS - GLONASS is a global positioning system, developed by the Russian Federation. It’s very similar to GPS, but isn’t so popular in cell phones.
