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 ...?

  • Display 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.

    • Specifications:
      • Aperture size:

        Aperture size - The aperture of a camera is the opening through which light travels before it reaches the camera sensor. The smaller the number is, the bigger this opening is, allowing for more light to pass.

        F1.7; Focal length:

        Focal length - The lower (shorter) the focal length number, the wider the shot will be. Conversely, longer focal length cameras produce narrower frames, which can be used for telephoto (zoomed-in) purposes.

        26 mm; Sensor size:

        Sensor size - A bigger camera sensor is able to capture more light, and thus produce better photos.

        1/2.55"; Pixel size:

        Pixel size - The size of an individual pixel on a camera's sensor. The bigger, the better.
