HTC U11 Life size comparison vs iPhones, Galaxy and mid-range phones


The HTC U11 Life is... well, live, and it is the company's newest affordable phone that will be sold in the United States.

The U11 Life is a 5.2-inch device with the Snaprdagon 630 chip inside, which usually translates into better battery life than usual, a key advantage for a modern smartphone.

But how does the phone stack up against the iPhones, major Android phones and other phones closer to its price range in terms of physical size? After all, many 5.5-inch devices these days might be just too big to comfortably carry around every day. So, let's go ahead and check out whether the 5.2-inch HTC U11 Life is really as compact as it sounds...

Does the essential have flagship specs? Why is it a midrange phone?

The Essential Phone i definitely NOT a mid-range phone. Now, onto my opinion on the phone's design (the U11 Life): I hate how the bottom bezel is much bigger than the other. It looks good on phones like the the Essential Phone, because there's virtually nothing there, however on models such as this, it makes the phone feel bottom-heavy, which means you might accidentally throw it at your face when you pick it up to look at the screen.
