Why manufacturers are so stingy on battery size? Please throw a 4000mah battery in so it will be amazing!

Technically they aren't, and they have. That would be the upcoming HTC U11+ . Also the Blacberry Motion has a 4000mAh battery with the same processor.

The Motion come with the sd625. There are actually quite a few differences between the two. With graphics processing probably being the most noticeable improvement on the sd630 = up to 30% gain.

What I mean is they should've used 4000mah on both U11 and U11 Lite and that would make them awesome.

they simply can't do it. do you remember the note 7. the problem that made the battery catch on fire was : bigger battery in such a small area that it couldn't fit properly which cause the battery to short. if they put 4000mah battery in a 5.2 phone it won't fit or the phone will be 15mm thick which i guess is not a good idea ;)

right...because bigger battery equates to better. What about optimization? Ever thought about scare lithium resources in the world?

I wanted the HTC u11 plus to come to T-Mobile. Would have been my first HTC in years!!!!

I hope but doubt the U11+ will have an 18:9 1440p screen. That alongside Oreo would be grand.
