Two new official videos promote features on the HTC U11
by Alan Friedman / Jun 03, 2017, 2:14 PM
Today, HTC posted two new video promos on YouTube dealing with some of the features on the recently introduced HTC U11. Both videos are a major improvement over the company's past promotional efforts. One video, titled "Squeeze to capture your brilliant moments," shows how Edge Sense can be used to activate the shutter on the front-facing selfie snapper. And with the IP67 certification rating, you can jump into ye olde swimming hole and record the action. The small print on the video does note that while the phone can be submerged to a depth of 1 meter (3.3 feet), water damage is not covered by the warranty. That also applies to IP67 and IP68 rated phones from other manufacturers like Apple, LG and Samsung.
The second video, "Made to be heard," focuses on some of the audio features on the HTC U11. For example, with the USonic headphones, sound is "tuned" specifically to your ear. And with Active Noise Cancellation, outside noises melt away like magic with the earphones on. And with Acoustic Zoom, as you zoom into a subject on video, the volume pertaining to that subject gets louder.
Check out the the two videos by clicking on the video slideshow below.

In his review he basically says that the phone is outdated and gimmicky and don't buy it . His conclusion is the best. if you wanna spend 600 , you rather spend a little more and get a Flagship like S8 or spend 400-450 and buy the one plus 3t or the one plus 5 which is gonna come out soon. I agree. Please be Quietly brilliant and buy something better !

Nothing Gimmicky about a Note 7, that doesn't explode, in the size of GS7 combined with the sexiest design ever made. That's brilliant and I would be shocked if it doesn't clean up the awards this year.

His conclusion is the best for you only because you have already been prejudiced against this phone, hence your opinion is biased and worth ignoring. Unless you have had the phone and feel the same way, you can't say his conclusion is the "best".

Samsung always overate phone due to their marketing. Yes, Hardware is top but software need to be revamp. Poor ram management, Poor reception(for Exynos model), Poor fingerprint position. Poor battery compare to the U11. While U11 give you better audio, camera, battery also performance which will be the same after use for a year unlike Samsung. Please be considering.

The majority of reviews out there say otherwise. To even come to the conclusion that this reviewer is suggesting not to buy is tell me, you have not even seen or touched the phone in person. The price of the U11 is the best price right now in the market. The camera score and design alone knocks the One+3T out of the discussion. The S8 (which is basically an s7+++) has no bezells, but that basically ruins the aspect ratio with regards to certain apps, videos, etc. I will be quietly brilliant and buy the U11.

I'm ordering one as well. PA's battery life results were awesome. I'll probably wait for the red model, unless I get impatient. Then I'll buy the black. Has a top of the line processor- check Has a Micro SD card slot - check Has waterproofing - check Has a top of the line camera(with slow mo in 1080p) - check Has incredible battery life(hour longer vs the S8+) - check Has stereo speakers - check Has the ability to have the bootloader unlocked - check check Cons Doesnt have the latest design (I guess I should tell people that are still rocking S4's, s5's, S6's, S7's and iphones that bezels so out this year) No head phone jack. I'm not a fan of capacitive buttons at the bottom. I like on screen buttons.

Dated design, no 3.5 mm jack, colors are definitely not for serious people. S8 is not perfect at all but at least it looks modern and has 3.5 mm jack. U11 looks like one of thousands phones currently on market (mostly in budget category) and it makes it really bad choice in premium segment.
