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 ...?
