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 ...?

      IP certified - The IP code indicates the degree of protection against dust and water. The first number represents dust protection, while the second represents water protection. In IP67, for example, 6 means a completely dust-tight device, while 7 means the device can stay immersed in up to 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes. In IP68, a higher level of water protection is expected, but exact numbers aren't specified: both depth and continuance are specified by the manufacturer on per device basis.

Displaybenchmark

  • Physical size:
    • 5.5 inches
  • Resolution:
    • 1440 x 2560 pixels
  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 534 ppi
  • 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.
